Anarchy Online is still the best mmo I've ever played.  Maybe the best video/computer game I've ever played.   2001-2004 AO I'm talking about. 

When you read threads about what mmorpgs should be, you think "that was AO!!!!"

 

Age of Conan is awesome.  Put failcom logos as your avatar all you want, but AoC has it all.  Mature community, depth, hundreds of skill points you can apply to your character when you level, fun combat (way more visceral and action packed than the wanna be console games like tera or RaiderZ).  If you want console level action combat check out DC Universe, Vindictus, or PSO2.  PSO2 is beyond awesome btw.    Awesome soundtrack.   Very dark fantasy world, no bubbly fat animal people like in tera or gw2.  AoC reminds of 80s style DnD - gritty.

The Sercret World is also pretty amazing.  People asked for something different and Funcom delivered.  Sure, it's not perfect, but it's different.  TSW makes you think.  An mmo that makes you use your brain??  What is this 1999??? 

Funcom, imo, makes the best mmos.  They have 3, and they are all awesome.

Really?  Because every game of theirs I play has a strong, very nice, and very mature community.  I've made more friends in Funcom games than I have in any other games, and I've dabbled in almost every mmo.

If Funcom put AoC's combat, combat animation, and character models in TSW and i assure you that i will subscribe for a long time. Thats the only reason (aside from a nonsensical full fledged cash shop in a sub based mmo) im waiting for F2P on TSW. Yes, only reason.

cant talk about AO since i never played it. 

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Supposedly the EU servers are where it's at.   The US servers are doing very well, so the EU servers must be great.

They've got great ideas, but often crappy execution. AO and AoC are especially good examples of this.

The most annoying of Funcom's failures is that, IMO, AO is still their best MMO. It has a huge, open world and a great mix of sandbox and themepark features - something both TSW and AoC lack. Too bad it's so 2001 it makes your eyes hurt, had some disappointing expansions, is quite dead and still doesn't have that new graphics engine they have talked about for years.

Its interesting how Funcom has become this edgy underdog dev that certain types like to rally behind.  "Interesting" probably isn't the word they would use.

When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

I agree about AO, that's why I have to say I'm talking about the Ao of old.  You need people to enjoy AO.   The whole structure of AO revolves around there being a lot of people playing.  Land control, the war, the ever-evolving story revolved around people.  AO was the first, and hopefully not last, mmo where the community (not just you as the "hero") was actively involved in the story.  You could vote,  could have protests, ect ect that would make an actual change in the game world.  It felt like an ever changing world, and felt like you could possibly make a dent in what went on.

Nope.  Not an edgy underdog.  Just like people who don't like WoW are just hating WoW to be cool.  Right?  One post about Funcom being good and they are now "an edgy underdog"?

 

Maybe I just like Funcom games.  Name one company that makes better games in the mmo world. 

 

Am I being an "edgy underdog"?

 

"certain types"

Im happy that Funcom have managed to turn things around after AoCs launch disaster. Like someone else said, they have great ideas but poor execution.

Maybe one day they will release a great MMO but with resent issues, sadly I doubt it.

I'm happy with TSW, but I could be happier if they fix the pvp in Fusang. I have a lifetime sub and still enjoy playing a few hours every week.  

 

There were a lot of things I liked about AoC and  a lot I didn't. I can't stand Villas...I've had enough of that for a lifetime. And when I bought AoC, I bought it legitimately. I mean, I was living in Korea. Then they blocked me because they sold the rights to a Korean distributor and wouldn't let me download the English client here (since I took time off and wanted to re-install). I have an 80 guardian. I have lived in Korea for a long time and I have never met a single person here who plays AoC. So that made me mad at FC.

 

I've never tried AO.

I don't know if they make the best MMOs , but I surely enjoy them. I waited a long time for a modern day MMO with an awesome setting and atmosphere, and TSW delivers exactly what I was looking for, along with a superb story, really cool dungeons, and a complex skill system that allows for lots of interesting combinations, among other things.

 

Not perfect, but there's no perfect game out there. What's in there was more than enough to get a lifetime membership.

 

Now AoC. I still have a sub and think it's worth every cent. Game still has a bunch of issues, and to many people out there, they're gamebreaking issues. Not to me, and I really appreciate what FC did to create this low fantasy virtual world.

 

And Anarchy Online. It's hard to believe the game is so old, because I still find the gameplay and the game systems way above the average MMO, and really hope at some point, they manage to make the graphical update a reality. Pretty sure this would inject new life into the game.

 

Don't play AO that much anymore, but keep my yearly plan going to show my appreciation and support for Funcom, a gaming company that brings many cool and interesting ideas to the MMO genre, and yes, the execution of these ideas may not always be the best, and some people may claim their execution leave a lot to be desired, and/or their  games just plain suck, but I am honestly not bothered by these comments.

 

I do enjoy playing Funcom games, and in the end, that's all it matters to me.

Life Liberty and the Pursuit of those that would threaten It

Im not a Funcom supporter seems like every game they have launched has had it share of problems and no change it looks in future. I suppose what bothers me the most is offering a Life-Time sub and a short time later talking of TSW going F2p and item shops. In my opinion Funcom is more interested in your money then game expericence.

 

Every Life-Time sub i have gotten went F2p and i will not support the company or there games any longer. Funcom is at the top of my List of game developers that i will not support.  TSW will go F2p sooner than later.

Who ever does the audio at funcom, both the soundtrack, voice and spot effects is if the highest quality. Aoc and tsw have the best soundtrack in mmos, heck better than the vast majority of solo games. If funcom end up going bust, someone should hire these guys. They are also a very strong company on instanced dungeon design, heck they invented them, however chars not really my thing. Funcom suck at pvp, and that's what keeps me playing long term.

I haeve to agree, even with their flaws they at least try to make unique games, the problem is that they tend to vear a bit too far, at times creating clunkly hard to use game mechanics, in the case of TSW, so many choices but at the same time so few actual choices resulting in too simple game mechanics, they somehow managed to do both in the same game.
