OP  1/17/13 9:36:04 PM#1

I think that is obvious that almost all people isn't willing to pay a monthly fee to play a game that delivers a single player experience. People thinks that SP games should be buyed once and played at ease until be "beaten" or they get sicken of them. However, some recent developers (like Bioware) offered single player games as if they were mmos.  In the last years, many "lobby games" were created too.

This wouldn't be a touble if the costs of these games and the profit expectations weren't so high, as in mmos.

 How can the devs to think that a common person is willing to pay monthly fee to play a single player or to join a lobby to play "matches" with others?

I think that a game that offers single-player-like experience can only be sucessfull as P2P if the content be VERY huge and constantly renewing.

Cause there is proof that people will pay for content that appeals to them.

COD4: MAKE ACTI MONEY has their 'Elite' program which has a sub and is making millions every month.

BF3 has their own premium service which is again a sub-fee program.

Most games come with DLC later on which is almost always not-free.

Gamers will pay for content. Whether it is logical to you or not doesn't matter.

I don't think it is logical to own a Limo, but that doesn't mean people don't own a limo.

Publishers and CEOs that don't understand the genre and just try to clone WoW.

And Activi-Blizz's financials will love to have a word with you cause that thing is enormous in size (players and $$$).

Heck, even BF3's premium service is huge compared to just 'normal' game releases.

What makes you think that devs think that people wanna pays subs for anything?

Why do you think F2P is the trend? Devs don't think people want to pay subs .. otherwise why all the F2P games?

At best you should call them lobby game.

Anyone who purchases any video game related items of service is paying for content that appeals to them.

This includes copies of the game, subscriptions to the game, or any form of payment at all to any game company for any reason.

Not only are they not outliers- they are EVERYONE, lol.

The problem today is more that many make the mistake to talk about their own playstyle in how they play a game.

Yes I too feel that SWtOR feels more like a singleplayer game with co-op options, but lets face the fact that you can play allot together with other people if you choose too. I simply choose to play it more like a singleplayer game because I feel no real need for community purpose because it's a mainly combat oriented game. Would SwtOR be a SWG 2.0 then my playstyle would turn back into MMORPG style because of it's more virtual world nature.

And even though the game didn't give me a MMORPG fibe I still subbed to the game even when it went F2P because for me atleast the sub-fee is such a low cost and find the restrictions anoying in F2P and the game provides me entertainment.

I still use the ingame market to sell and buy things from other players, sometimes live-trades, am able to ask for help or give help to other players.

There are still more layers in even today's MMORPG's compared to singleplayer game due to it's ingame community.

But the singleplayer parts in MMORPG's are more like the old singleplayer games. I havn't seen a current MMO that could compete with today's singleplayer games if you really want to play alone.

You don't need a MMO to do that. Just a persistent AH. D3 is a good example. Not a MMO but you can trade with anyone.

Obviously not true. Look at xfire numbers. Aside from WOW & GW2, most on the top are NOT MMOs (add WOT if you count it as one). D3 is probably bigger, in player numbers, than 90% of the MMOs out there. COD is probably also bigger.

But the singleplayer parts in MMORPG's are more like the old singleplayer games. I havn't seen a current MMO that could compete with today's singleplayer games if you really want to play alone.

There are many. For example, STO. There is no other Star Trek theme RPG in the last few years. I would just play it as a SP game because there is no better Star Trek RPG.

You missed the word "I" and never said there arn't other games with certain feature's I might like from MMO's.

You missed the word "I" and never said there arn't other games with certain feature's I might like from MMO's. But I can not trade with another player in a SINGLEPLAYER offline game. Which is for me what a singleplayer game is. Else it's a online game regardless it's genre.

Thought the discussion was about singleplayer games being MMORPG, doesn't X-fire show mostly online games regardless which genre? atleast you seem to mention online games...

But the singleplayer parts in MMORPG's are more like the old singleplayer games. I havn't seen a current MMO that could compete with today's singleplayer games if you really want to play alone.

Well very obvious there are exceptions, but I am still 100% that a pure singleplayer game experiance is still far different then playing a MMORPG as a singleplayer game, there is so much more that will impact your character and the ingame world in a singleplayer game that a MMORPG can not match that atleast not most current themepark MMO's.

Will you not say that lets say you ignore every other player in a MMO and you wander about the ingame world, look at the city's, NPC's overall ingame AI life, compare that to singleplayer games, now don't you think that singleplayer game are able to make to world more alive by it's ingame AI?

That to me is the difference that while I might play certain MMO's currently like singleplayer games, they still don't feel like singleplayer games.

Threads are just places to pass time in between work.

My inner censor is very simple. I look at a game, preferably play a demo, and will buy into it (or if it is F2P, spend time) if i find it fun. I don't care about which genre it is from.

The fact that Blizzard has made a ton of money doesn't change the fact that its an outlier.
