Reader Mail - The Action Adventure MMO

Ok quick repsonse this week to the only question we got last week in Reader Mail. Which is...where are all the action adventure MMOs? 

I will list 3 games that I think will meet this concept in the near future.

1. Star Wars: The Old Republic.

From what I saw at E3, this game is pretty in depth and has major action adventure game play elements. Let's just hope they can make it work in an MMO.

 

2. DC Universe

This game is being designed for the PS3 as well. Therefore it must meet the requirements for a console game. The game play is fast paced and action adventure seem to be written all over it.

3. Age of Conan

Say what you like about this game, but I found the combos and combat mechanics fun. Even though it still mirrored the hot bar mentality, it had enough difference for me to enjoy the combat at least for a while.

I think MMOs suffer from their roots and the game play has not changed because people do not want to do something new. The hot bar design works and everyone has grown accustomed to it.

That being said, if there is new way....I'll be the first in line :)

You actually respond to reader mail? :)

There are no MMO’s I would call action adventure, but it depends what you mean by that term. If you are talking old style pulp comic action adventure there is nothing.

Age of Conan was not a bad pick, it had pulp comic roots but the game has a too realistic feel to be called pulp action adventure. I liked AoC though, what MMO does not have faults?

City of Heroes and Champions as superheroes games have some action adventure elements. I would stick to CoX, it has had a couple of years of expansions and polish.

I don’t like to comment on titles not released they are more hype than substance before launch.
