    True though you have to start somewhere. While people can argue what a Sandbox is all day long there are enough differences that it could lead a person to at least consider something or immediately steer them away from something.

    There's no way to avoid it. Either the description is so long that it's impractical for searching, or it's so vague that it won't give enough information. I see a website like this as a good starting point for searching - you can search 100 games quickly and once you've found a promising game you can look for more information elsewere.

    @BalthamosAT Have you considered adding links to MMORPG.com reviews, or some other reviews, to the game's descriptions?

    Yes, I have several features I want to implement:
    • Updates/expansions/dlcs section, so you know that WoW came out in 2004, but there's a new expansion on the way
    • Review links
    • "like" feature to get suggestions based on what other users with the same taste like and play
    I'm kind of busy with my work right now, so I expect this to be finished in a month or so.

    No, don't change archeage from sandbox to themepark. it is not themepark game, if you suggest it as themepark you will just piss off players who will use your site and look for free2play themepark game.
    I changed it to mixed. I've played it and, at least when leveling, you go on rails.

    Then how did I level all my characters via crafting? ? My last 2 characters are maxed without completing a single quest.

    Playing ArcheAge "on rails" is the worst option, there are other more effective ways of leveling that don't involve any quests period.

    So - just because  *you chose* questing it is not the only option, certainly not the best option.

    ArcheAge gives you lots of choices.
    Does not matter whether you level via crafting, quests or grinding, the linear, themepark determining part is the leveling. The game is designed so that player reach max level, get top gear, etc - all linear.

    Archeage is themepark ground to bottom.
    Have you actually seen anyone with the "Top gear" in AA? What is even "top gear" in AA? And what is actually linear in AA unless you follow the hand holding marker XLGames put in the game for themepark players? You know some people say ignorance is a bliss but it is not, ignorance is just ignorant.

    Boobs are LIFE, Boobs are LOVE, Boobs are JUSTICE, Boobs are mankind's HOPES and DREAMS. People who complain about boobs have lost their humanity.

    I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story.  So PM me if you are starting one.

    The player doesn't have to. The site owner just has to clarify their definitions. The question marks currently have a very vague definition which will not work. Has to be a little more specific. Then the owner has to be very strict and uphold the definitions firmly.

I can see it now; the beginning of a MMO regulatory agency that is the final word on what is what in the MMO community! :D

    Way too easy to get no results. Site needs work in that respect.

    Just because a game has leveling and gear progression does not make it a themepark.

    ArcheAge is a sandpark game through and through.

    It seems Runescape is considered to have not only partial, but full open world PvP and that's definitely not the case.

    XD lol, that would be pretty crazy. I doubt it would go so far. But the site stating it's definitions clearly will certainly help prevent mix ups and such even if someone doesn't agree with the definitions.

    you should require some kind of account signup to submit games and such, there was a lot of erroneous info for the mmo i play, whoever added it clearly doesn't play it and knows jack shit about it......

    I completely agree with this.
    While it is pretty clear that Minecraft is definitely a sandbox and World of Warcraft is a themepark,
    I think its a lot of subjective opinion based on personal experience that makes up definitions.

    We have to start somewhere, and in this case the site owner/developer has absolute authority on this.

    It very much does, it is the defining nature of themepark - linear progression based design. lol

    There is no such thing as Sandpark, silly term invented by people who have no balls to admit they enjoy a themepark :)

    Interesting idea.  I bet building the queries are a slight nightmare.
