i was sitting here, at 4:48 in the morning sipping my coffee and i smiled. The thought of being able to play in a persistent environment with other folks in some of my favorite older game settings made me happy.
Mainly, the memory of playing through the original Wild Arms recently came to mind, and as one of my favorite older games ( Chrono Trigger being my favorite ), i couldn't help but wonder what that particular world would be like in an MMO setting. Could it be viable? Would the lore stand the test of time? Would anyone have the testicular fortitude to do it? Obviously it will never happen as those titles belong to companies who would never venture into this realm, however, it didn't stop me from imagining!
Terrible sound effects and clunky 1997 ps1 graphics aside, Wild Arms was one of the best, underappreciated rpgs from my youthful years and i think the original setting of the first game would make a perfect world to explore in a sandbox setting. I believe it would work and would be incredibly immersive.
Does anyone have any older titles that they are terribly fond of that they would like to see in an mmo setting?
