I am trying to find love again. I like role playing MMOs. My love was City of Heroes. I could type endlessly about why I loved that game. The glimmers of hope on the horizon (maybe) are City of Titans and Valiance Online. I fear those games are far off. I'll admit I am not necessarily seeking an exact copy of City of Heroes, but DAMN it was a fun game.
For those who knew it and loved it, what game do you recommend I look into?
For those who did not know the game, just a few spectacular traits of City of Heroes:
-the character appearance options were...well...insane! I plunged right off that cliff of sanity into crazy options. Human, mammal, reptile, alien, elemental, short, fat...TONS OF OPTIONS.
-You decided if you would fight for a side and those being good or evil. Otherwise your character could almost be anything you could dream of being.
-POWER OPTIONS- not only did you decide class, but within those classes your options were sick! One toon could be fire demon who had a flaming aura and the next toon could be a kid with powers to paralyze, heal, degrade or debuff any target. Haven't seen this anywhere near the scale of CoH in any other game.
-Powersets were designed to promote teammage. As a result, you could play entirely alone (I'll agree that took some skill depending on archetype) or you could easily just announce your desire to team and invites typically came within seconds,
Just those few traits I mentioned above made for a GREAT community. My hopes are that NCSoft will right their wrong and give the game a massive overhaul and take advantage of the current superhuman media production. You are welcome NCSoft and I haven't forgiven you yet.
