  • Baalzharon said: For EVE, its the odd one out of the bunch. Its the only sandbox full loot PvP MMO I like. None of the others have bothered to research why its successful Funny thing is, at one point CCP stated the vast majority of players did…
  • I think you need to define what a "casual" gamer is. Are you talking about 10 minutes a day, like a Facebook gamer, or do you mean 1-2 hours a day, like an adult-gamer with a full time job? If you can't tell, I'm the latter. I love the concept of M…
  • I call it "Darwinism". If you are a class that will have some benefit to a group, it will always be easy to find a group - Healer specced Cleric in DAoC, for example. If you are just one of the number of several random classes that spam damage every…
  • I haven't played the game since a few weeks after release, due to the griefing that took place anytime I spawned or tried to build a ship. People on both sides of this, but ESPECIALLY THE DEVS, need to remember that PvP restrictions and PvP counter…
  • The key word I think everyone here can agree on is "regulation". Full loot PvP is an amazing, adrenaline filled experience, even if you don't personalty partake in the player-killing... Hell, i just get a rush out of trying to find ways to thwart th…
  • I'm also curious to see what's still around. I played a heavily modded version of DikuMUD back in the mid-90's. Recent MUDs I've seen are a bit too complex and way to "carebear" friendly for my hardcore liking. Hell, we used to be able to kill anyon…
    in MUD games? Comment by Lerxst August 2018
  • I think a lot of what you can find would be available in the "Employment" section of some of these publisher/developer sites. Or going to a Indie Game site and looking at the postings there also gives you a good idea of how the foundation of these g…
  • Loke666 said: You can just do the same thing so long unless you are EA Sports... I don't think MMOs are done but the Wow model is.  The idea that you put the player in a large explorable world with many other players and add a pinch of pen an…
  • d_20 said: I've tried this game so many times -- as recently as last night  -- because of threads like this. I want to see this awesome story and great community, but I just haven't got to it yet. Last night, I was on my level 8-9 dwarf doing …
  • sayuu said: By law in Belgium for a game to be considered gambling one must be able to lose one's money ( the wager) so  online casinos and more recently CS:GO item wagering is considered gambling in belgium because one can lose what they wage…
  • Fallout 1 & 2
  • LoTRO? Last I played that, I was all alone in a desolate wasteland of NPC quest, without a single player to be found. There may have been players around, but they were so over-leveled for me, that I might as well have been playing a single player ga…
  • Now this thread is an EVE rant/worship?? Fine. I beta tested *that* game. I also played it for a month or two, on and off, after release. If I liked having a second job as an accountant, staring at spreadsheets all day long, I'd love EVE. Problem i…
  • BDO and EVE both have the same issues - unless you have an "in" and know people, you will be relegated to solo play only. At that point, you might as well be playing a single player game. The community in both of those are pretty nameless and facele…
  • This can actually be done right, as in a Premium account that offers the full game features you'd expect vs. the free account that either limits you or places major grinding hurdles in your way. Archeage started off this way in its first month, then…
  • Most survival games reach a point where the word becomes meaningless. It's like meeting up with friends: Me: Let's play a game! Friend: Great idea. What game? Me: It's called breathe. All you have to do is breathe. 5 minutes later, everyone's brea…
  • Anime, hands down. I'll take it a step further though and say, anything too "blingy" kills it for me.  For instance, bright colored sword slashes for no reason other than swinging a sword, simple movements or skills being accented with flashes and b…
  • Space Station 13. That game is 100% journey, since the game lasts in rounds and any given round can be 15 minutes or 2 hours. No leveling. No stats. No skills. You just start as who you are, doing the job you do... and watching paranoia and chaos e…
  • The "free"ness of the game doesn't bother me. I'm used to spending $15/month on subscription games. Getting a game come along that has the same quality as those games had, that I spent that money on, that is now labeled as "free", only acts as a sel…
  • GLOR.io If you're up for a .io game, that is.
