  • Okay WTF is a MMO? Really?

    Who even cares at this point. 
    The people that loooove MMOs care because once a game is labeled as an "MMO", they have the power to dictate to the developers what they feel should be in the game e.g. endless gear grind, end game dungeons and raids, don't cater to solo.  If the developers does not concede to their wishes, the game will be destroyed in forums and blogs.

    Developers want to move away from the MMO label so they they can have the power to shape the game as they want.

    By not labeling the game as an MMO, developers effectively removed the power from the "it's an MMO" crowd.  
    hehe .. i highly doubt developers care about "powers to destroy in forums" or they control what games are classified as.

    Look at the huge debate on whether Destiny 2 is a MMO .. Bungie would care less and they will be make tons of money either way. Only some here may care. Most gamers will just play the game.

    Yeah,  as I read Eldrians posts I thought we play for so very different reasons.

    I'm far more interested in having a good time, especially if I can help others while doing so.

    I'm guessing Eldrian believes the best way to help his team to is be the best he can personally be whereas for me its equally important  (and perhaps more so) to assist other members of my team, likely why I favor support roles. 

    Narius will call both of us chumps because for him only his goals matter. ;)
    Of course. I don't see why i can't enjoy entertainment products as I see fit.

    BTW, isn't that what you think too? The only difference is that you care about other players, and they are pretty much just NPCs to me.

    It is certainly your prerogative to care about other players. However, you cannot ask for reciprocation. No one is under any obligation to play your way in an online game. 

  • Is Destiny 2 an MMO:Poll

    More than 20% of the votes say "yes". Now does this website gets a say too? The gamelist here classifies Destiny 2 as a "MMOFPS".

  • As a solo only player...MMOs should be a social only genre

    Nope, definitely not. Besides, weren't you done with the genre anyway according to your other troll post? ;)

    hmm .. "done with the genre" does not equate "done with having fun talking about the genre on a forum".

    Don't tell me you think playing a MMO is the same as talking about MMOs here. 
  • Do you think World of Warcraft changed everything ?

      Quickly on paper "LFD" sounds like a great problem solver, But it devastated any chance of community.  Like it or not the game turned into a lobby game.
    I don't play games for "communities". I suspect many don't really care (or else why would toxic games like LoL are so popular"). Solving a problem at the expense of "community" is a great thing when people don't care about community.

    Lobby games are a lot more efficient. It is not like cities in WoW are anything but 3D lobbies anyway. May as well make it more friendly to navigate. In fact, isn't it great that in a game like D3, a few clicks will get me in the game mode that i like to play? None of these walking around and jumping through hoops before I actually can play.
