6-12 Month Ban on all MMO's

The time is now to stop playing MMO's until the QUALITY and ORIGINALITY get better.

I know some will disagree but I implore you to please change you mindset. YOU DESERVE BETTER! Every month more and more games keep releasing, you cant miss them they are posted all over websites with flashy images(FREE FREE FREE come play now). How many clones can there be? 

We as the community have the power sitting right in our grips and we let it slip away, we continue to dish out money for these over-hyped games. The cycle will never end if we do not stand up to it. How many times can you be burnt by a game thinking "this is gonna be the best game ever", only to find out that years and years of waiting have left you in dismay. 

Go out, hang with your familty, play single player games stop dishing out money to game companies that do not care about what you enjoy but only care about how deep their pockets go. Sure 6-12 months seems like a long time but HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WAITING FOR A GAME TO IMPRESS YOU?

Spread the word WE DEMAND BETTER AND WE WILL NOT ACCEPT LESS!

Post your ideas, alternative single player games that can really keep your interest.

On a side note I wanna thank all these games that have gone "Free to play" you have made me appreciate how cheap subscription based games truly are.

 

PLEASE KEEP YOUR POSTING CIVIL THIS TIME AROUND!

    O Sweet Anarchy Online how I miss you so. This was the last time I was impressed by an MMO. So many years ago lol. You actually had to use your brain to equip your armor, it wasnt just right click to equip.

     

    As for some of the others posts it was expected that some people will disagree with me and that is fine. I am happy that you are enjoying some games like GW2 and SWOTR. 

     

    Not to insult anyone but I find those that are generally happy with the current state of the game quality out there are more simple minded. And after reading the majority of posts it does seem pretty clear. And by clear I mean that lots of the posts are full of flaming. Generally those less simple minded put thought into what they read and what they post, they do not go into defensive mode and started yelling.

     

    But back on topic, as one user asked me "what do I find original?" Well as I kinda hinted at up top Anarchy Online was a game imo that came up with a lot of original ideas. I am sure those that have not played it will be first to disagree.

     

    I am not saying if your having a good time with a game, "stop it right now!" I am simply saying those of us who are not impressed by simplicity stand up and demand better. You can disagree, its your right. I will respect your opinion but please do the same in turn.

    Flock to the Private servers of your most cherished oldskool game. Boycott the AAA companies that don't think you're smart enough to kill 10 rats without a bright exclaimation point, and mystical light up path leading you along. Do not feed into the cash shop nickle and diming you to death for advantages that replace player skill. Most of all wake up. Being led around a dull static world running the same material over and over again to get your set items is nothing more than virtual lobotomization. Gone are the days of kinship, adrenaline, exploration, adventure, and a earned sense of accomplishment. Now we face stagnation, simplificatoin, and regurgitation. Show these developers you really would rather play some 10 year old dinosaur then to give way to their greed, and unoriginality.

    Which was locked for a reason and you just exhibited why. Calling people simple minded for what game they choose to play is ignorant since you have no idea how intelligent they are. Please find other ways of gratification.

    And it was not intended if you read the whole comment. And there is nothing insulting about being simple minded. I am very simple minded when it comes to other things, as I choose to be so for things I care less for. So please dont come in here starting a flame war and keep this post productive. Thanks

    I'm very simple minded when it comes to bacon. I know that it's bad for you, but I still eat it up. You just can't convince some people that there are better things than bacon sometimes.

    I'm not trying to start a flame war but the third paragraph of your second post is going to be taken he wrong way. You even included "not to insult anyone..." which means you are aware of it already. It seems like you are preconditioning those that disagree with you as being less than those that would agree with you. I just don't think it's right to do and not really your place to make those claims.

    You have the right to your opinion but framing your post the way you did will incite things to detract from the conversation.

    If everyone who liked bacon was simple minded we'd all be running into walls :)

    This whole protest is silly.  What's fun, acceptable and a good entertainment value to one person may not be to another.  The easiest thing to do is vote with your wallet.  If you don't like a game, don't pay to play it.  Companies that aren't profitable won't be around long, anyway.

    There are millions of people happily playing MMOs in the West right now.

    Good luck with that protest... your impact will be felt by... no one.

    Now, that isn't saying I don't agree with you in some sense about wanting something more - but I fully understand that I am, without a doubt, in the minority.

    I'm playing WoW and Gw2 right now and having a good time. Do I have to "Ban" games too? Or is this just for people who aren't happy? Just wondering cause I like both of these games and don't mind spending money on something I like doing. 

     

    On the other hand... I absolutely hate single player games. Can I call for a Ban on them?

    ive been boycotting most mmos since before cataclysm.  tried a couple, swtor and tsw being the last two and got bored after a few months.  tsw i would probably still play solely for the setting but i took a break for a month and just havent had the urge to go back yet.  until  a game comes out that I can get really into ill just stick with world of tanks.  at least it is somewhat different and still fun to play.

    Had you said this before I played GW2(last year), I'd agree.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    This post is worse than Jerry Maguire asking the people at his job: "Who's coming with me!?"

    Money and development go into business opportunities that the investors count on making money on. If we all seriously stopped subbing for 12 months than the analysts would advise the developers to stay out of the MMO market.

    ain't gonna happen; that's why some devs are designing "awesome" games like Darkfall, Mortal Online, etc...

    +1 for the OP.

    Just to clarify, it's not that new mmorpg are bad. they are amazing in graphic, gameplay, events, locations, monsters, whatever you wish. But they simply lost the feeling of what a "RPG" is. The name speaks for itself..a ROLE playing game, not an action combat game where you PLAY the role on a group while fighting.

    I tried this evening RaiderZ, open beta just started. No complains at all, amazing char control, superb landscapes. But hey, wait, am I playing WoW? Or Rift? Goddamn those games are ALL THE SAME with the damn same mechanics.

    Oh Great here we go, the next auction house fully-automated instead of people spamming in the city center what they want to trade or asking to join for a dungeon hunt or simply..SOCIALIZING, being a part of a world and living a ROLE. I remember there was also begger (not NPC) just playing in this way to grab stuff from people ;)

    No custom houses, everything is instanced. I simply don't feel at home in mmorpg like this.

    Like stated in my previous thread, I've foudn NO valid alternatives to Ultima Online. Outdated, old, horrible gameplay. But guesswhat? Still kicking, alive, with always new stuff, updates and celebrating right now the 15th year of UO. That's why I just got back to play, waiting for hopes in the future..

    Archeage online is the only one that *could* finally give us something new (in the next year), not the usual clone.
