    Yea it was good, but just not good enough. My poor limited edition box is collecting dust. :(

    WoW is a disease that will infect your brain and your computer.

    Yeah, I miss it too. It got dated after a while but it was so innovative as to make it easy to look past that. I enjoyed being able to go back to it every now and then.

    All die, so die well.

    The world is an imperfect place.

    I loved diplomacy in Vanguard -- especially back in the beta.  There was so much they wanted to do with it and they only managed a small amount.  Someday another game will have something like diplomacy.

    I think that game may very well be EQN, not the same as Vanguards but something very similar and up dated.

    Long time since I heard anything about EverQuest Next.

    I never got the impression SOE was planning on adopting anything from Vanguard for EverQuest Next.

    Last time there was rambling about sandboxing and free to play.

    Yeah, after what's been happening with archeage at the moment. I wish Vanguard was still around. Any news on vgo emulator? They haven't been updating their Facebook lately.

    I don't know. To me eq2 is plenty similar. With that said, we'd better wait for EQNext.

    Besides that one...yeah. A lot of modern games basically suck and are copy/pastes(sadly). Or really random innovations instead of innovations built on experience. Meh...

    Vanguard will always be missed!

    I don't know what it was about Vanguard, but it held an astonishing level of immersion for me. Pity it's gone.

    I hope you're joking....

    Have you tried the combat in this game. It's more of a sequel to Neverwinter Online then Vanguard lol. That said Vanguard was a terrible game that almost no one played. Most of this thread is the nostalgia talking. How quick we forget about how unplayable it was even in it's prime.  Yes the game had massive potential but in the end not even 1% of that potential was realized.

    I just keep getting the motivation to play my characters again, or explore certain questlines again, or work on my crafters again, etc.

    But its all gone. Sigh.

    Correct - I loved VG too played it for a year and a half, good times.

    But IMO there are even better games out right now - much better than VG

     

  • EverketEverket Member UncommonPosts: 244

    Hopefully the emulator will work out.

     

    Other than that not much good stuff out there, project gorgon is pretty interesting though. Old style classless indie mmorpg with more skills(many weird ones) that any other mmorpg I've seen.

    I'm curious as to which games you're referencing that are better?

    Sounds interesting, though personally I'm a huge fan of classic static classes.

    Vanguard is one of the best examples why classic classes are a good idea - you play a different class, its a whole different playstyle and you have to think about very different things.

    You just hurt my brain.

    To even use these 2 games in the same sentence is just wrong.

    EQ2 .... better.... version... of Vanguard....

    No.

    Hell no.

    Please tell me you're kidding...

    Optional PvP = No PvP
  • BigdaddyxBigdaddyx Member UncommonPosts: 2,039

    No i am not.

    EQ2 has everything that Vanguard has. And it gets regular support and content update.

    Other than diplomacy EQ2 infact has much more to do in terms of features.

    I am sorry if you disagree. You make it sound as if Vanguard was so damn unique and out of this world.
