  • The OP is right. As new MMOs get developed and launched, we see a lot of the same cycles. People playing MMOs seem to have a love-hate relationship with them. They are hooked on the game play on one level but unhappy with it on another level.   …
  • Originally posted by Muktuk I like to group and I like to solo.    See this is the boat I'm in as well.  Sometimes I want to group. Sometimes I want to solo.  That's why I prefer to play games where both are rewarding and fun to do. There ar…
  • I'm a pretty hardcore RPer, and most games have very little RP outside of RP guilds... So I usually search for (or found) a medium-to-heavy RP guild in which I can be a member.  Generally I find that the overall quality of not just the RP but also t…
  • I think a big portion of whether a game is "solo friendly" or "group friendly" depends on what you, as a player, are looking for.   It seems as though many of you on this thread, very nearly all of you in fact, are considering only one thing -- …
  • Originally posted by Loktofeit Originally posted by arcdevil the bare minimum of a MMORPG would be: - a robust server that can hold many players in an area - an avatar - a communication system   there you are, its massive, its multi…
  • Originally posted by Sovrath I don't let one game affect how I think of similar elements in another. I also don't let people's unanimous choice of a class affect how I think of a class. Essentially the only opinon that matters is my own regardle…
  • Originally posted by kirak2009 announcing games 3 years in advance,  when  they are but a twinkle in daddie's eye would much prefer game announcements  6 month's before release, hype be damned This is a good one. It's probably #2 on my list…
  • Originally posted by Torik Some people are wired to get a rush out of gambling and others get a rush from ramping up an intellectual challenge until you beat it.    Death penalties feed the first group and starve the second. Extremely well s…
  • I have never had any interest in the classic MMORPG "end game." I have lots of ideas for characters so usually when I level cap, I just make an alt. Playing the same character but gaining no XP for him or her, is of no real interest to me. I guess t…
  • Originally posted by Rohn   I find the answer you listed in your second paragraph interesting, even though you yourself appear to fall into the second category on the poll (correct me if I'm wrong). Though the correct "answer" may appear self…
  • I don't agree that playing poker with pretend money is not a challenge. I used to do it with my friends all the time. The winner of the night was the guy who cleaned out everyone else's chips. Are you trying to say that it would be harder to "bet co…
  • My #1 gripe for the last few years has been the lack of innovation.  Dev companies are too content to just take the existing structure of current games, and then overlay their tweaks onto them. I have referred to this as basically "reskinning." For …
  • Wow this is very difficult.  I have played both, and I like both.  I think eventually Sims 3 might be better, but Sims 2 whips it right now in terms of content, if you want to buy that content.   I also think the direction of the first expansion…
  • I guess it depends on what you consider a "risk." Really the only thing you can "risk" in a video game where it's  just a bunch of pixels you are choosing to believe is a character, a world, etc, is something of value to yourself, whether it's time …
  • Originally posted by Dalgor God I wish, Im just praying all the pvp idiots will eventually burn themselves out of the genre and screw off and stop ruining MMORPGs You would really think with all the awesome PVP games out there like Call of Duty…
  • I think this survey is flawed.  The answer is supposed to be obvious (Players who also read about it) and I'm sure you worded it this way on purpose to get the answer you want. This is called a "leading" or "spiked" poll.   If I were to answer i…
  • #1: Pre-CU SWG. #2: City of Heroes I've tried lots of others. Not one was worth the time or money I invested into it.   C
  • Originally posted by TweFoju infact i think FFA PVP is what most people are looking for, only to the dissapointment, so far, there are none of the FFA PVP MMO that have the right execution yet I will agree that few MMOs if any have good executi…
  • I wrote a long piece about this almost a year ago in my blog.   And in fact single player RPGs have a death penalty, just a very mild one. It's called "Reload from the last save game." And if you're smart about saves (or maybe I should say "para…
  • Originally posted by GrayGhost79 Well you have minor changes... such as balancing which is fine (not always lol but mostly) Then you have major changes like NGE and such.    Whether a change is good or not really depends on the player and the …
