I'd like to see an MMO set in a distant,melancholy future ala Philip K. Dickian style.

I always thought that Vampire Earth would make a good MMO setting.

I loved the Watch books. It could be very interesting: in the 4th book they had progressive layers of the gloom-you could have PVP maps that would get progressively  more difficult to master or something. And of course the whole Alan Wake flashlight thing is straight out of it.


When the films came out I bought a very strange Russian RPG based on it -running around Moscow hunting vampires and shape-shifters.

Look, I know you guys need something to write an acticle about, but these "What IP/World would make a good MMORPG?"  discussions arent helping move the genre forward.


In fact I believe it contributes to holding it back.


We dont need any more established IPs becoming MMOs. They all fail.


Putting up articles like this, and having people respond with their own ides, just adds fuel to the wildfire that is substandard and shallow MMOs because it gives game companies the idea that we the players would prefer them over something original.


 


Please, please, please! Game Development Companies! Create something unique to you. Not something already thought up by someone else.


 


Original MMO Worlds > Pre-established IP Worlds



 



Just because you have a famous IP doesn't mean you can't have good gameplay too. The fault is with gamedevs/companies take the easy/less risky route, not IP vs original creation.

The more money that goes into something (the licensing fees and critical attention) the more likely a game is to be a boring WoW clone like LotRO, Age of Conan, or SWTOR. I've only ever see one adaption that worked out and it was SWG, and even that game had huge issues (even before NGE)

The Wild Cards series would make an amazing super hero MMO

* Star Trek  (Because STO doesn't do it justice)

 

* Big Trouble in Little China  (Oh yea...you know you'd be on that like white on rice!)

Gotta agree with Harry Potter

 

I would die if i heard of a Resident Evil MMO (think of it like outbreak but good because you can actually communicate)

 

Grand Theft Auto/Saints Row style MMO that doesnt require missions for PVP. (talking about you APB)

 

Nobunaga's Ambision or Bushido Blade (these titles may be a little old for you Youngins)

 

 

 

 

 

Because i can.

ill agree with Shadowrun, so long as they have permadeath. if no permadeath in the game then its not shadowrun.

Shadowrun would be great, but I doubt they'd ever manage to create something that comes even close to its potential, so we might be better off without it.


Also quite ironic how half the suggestions by the writer in a column titled "No Elves Allowed" has elves in it.

I feel it would be worthwhile for SBFord (the OP and MMORPG.com staffer) to do a follow up article once this thread runs its course.

I suggest SBFord create a poll to measure the popularity of the diffrent properties mentioned in this thread. Then research a few of the more popular ideas along with some of the more unusual ones and describe those properties and what a game based on them might look like.

OMG Discworld. YES PLEASE.


 


You don't have to run with the jokes. Make a DARK alternate Discworld with the Guilds, Mages, Patrician, The Watch, Counterweight continent etc.


 


There are classes, backstories, world PvP, world PvE and all that jazz in Discworld. Leave it to the players to run the jokes.


 


Actualy the Discworld is a dark and lonely place. If you cannot see past the jokes, it's not for you ... Hell I want a Discworld MMO ...

To the nay-sayers, it's not the IP but the developer/publisher that make bad MMOs. If you want quick money, no IP is going to save the game. If you want a great game, ANY IP will do.

Dragonlance: Already mentioned, but fighting in the War of the Lance would be awesome. Probably the only fantasy setting that might entice me.

Mechwarrior/Battletech: I was a huge fan of the storyline up until the clans returned. The old mechs had a sense of character then clan-mechs lacked. Five-sided PvP on multiple fronts could work, though it might be hard to populate some of the houses.

Cyberpunk: Despite being a class-based game, this setting have plenty of potential.

@Keogh I'll let Suzie know. However, she wasn't the original poster. I am. ;) It might, however, be entertaining to do two follow-up pieces on this. :) 


@Shadowrun suggestions I could be wrong but I believe there IS a Shadowrun MMO in the works. However, it's very much an indie project.


@TheNiteWolf One and half. Depending on the Block you're playing, elves may or may not exist. :P But as per the No Elves Manifesto, I'm willing to make exceptions for things that are, well, not Legolas clones. Discworld elves are creepy, inhuman and somewhat kick-ass in their casual cruelty and odd tricks. I could run with those. Seriously. (Someone make us all a Discworld MMO already.)


@Dayworld MMO ... I need to read that.

I would say Bas-Lag world from Perdido Street station Sar and Iron Council. So many options are laying in that world.

This topic seems to pop-up on a frequent basis & everyone chimes in on their favourites, perfectly harmless bit of fun in my opinion, long may it continue.


Planescape


Dune


Riverworld


Wild-West (Sandbox-ish, certain elements would be NPC-driven , such as railroad companies, mail-wagons providing a "backbone" that can be added to by players, a certain amount of quest play along these backbones but outposts & towns would be built, run & staffed by players, with businesses able to "hire" other players or npc's to work for them).


Blade-runner (set in that scenario at least) or perhaps Mega-City One (Judge Dredd turf).

Robotech. You have 3 generations of mecha to use and better yet... no elves. Done and done.
