i found it oddly immersive despite its blockiness.   and its got neverending content since its generated.

I've played a lot of Minecraft  in concentrated doses. I don't play it often anymore, after that first week or so, like you. But every once in a while I go on a binge for a day or two. I thought I wouldn't like it because of the blocky animations, but once I tried it, I could see beyond that and was glad. 

 

I don't pvp in it and I'm not quite sure how I feel about the pve. Sometimes I turn it off just to build or explore or whatever. But then it gets a little boring, so I turn it on for a while. But it seems kind of meaningless. There are not great drops from the mobs for example. If they had even a small chance of dropping something really cool, it would be more fun to leave the mobs on all the time. 

 

Another thing that would be cool is if the human npcs and villages you ran into had a bit more personality. Like if you could befriend them  and live there, or if you could anger them and have them turn against you, or some dynamic like that. 

 

But overall, there is something about Minecraft that is amazingly addictive and wonderful and I think if any mmo can get what that is, it will be The Next Big Thing.

There... are... four... lights!

- 1996: Ultima Online. Despite its 2.5D isometric graphics, the world was immersive and begging to be explored. Much better than the ugly attempts at 3D of some other games of the same era.

- As of 1999: Asheron's Call. A huge, immersive and SEAMLESS 3D world, opposed to the isometric world of UO and the heavily zoned world of EQ.

- As of 2004: WoW. Yes. WoW has a beautiful, immersive and carefully crafted world with a lot of details, despite its "cartoonish" style.

- As of 2007: LotRO. It has badly aged now though and can't compare to games like Conan or GW2. And unlike Vanguard, released the same year, LotRO's engine wasn't bugged as hell.

Talking about Conan, it won't make my list because, just like TSW, the world doesn't feel like a world. The areas aren't contiguous, but just random parts of the world. I like worlds that feel "coherent", making sense.

Rift's world is way to linear and cramped to make my list, and Tera, despite looking nice, is way too "asian" for my liking to make it in my best world list.

SW:TOR wasn't too bad in some parts, but places like Correlia didn't feel like a planet. Corruscant is completely failed, too, and doesn't feel like a town, and it's way too cramped compared to the movie's city planet.

- As of now: GW2 has the most beautiful MMORPG world to date for me.

Playing now: Archeage, WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

TERA and GW2 works fine as well, I actually think that TERA looks best even if the world have fewer features than the rest. But all those 4 games are worth a look for people liking pretty games. 

LOTRO do have pretty ugly avatars though but the world do look great.

Yes the Lotro avatars don't come up to scratch compared to the landscape.

TSW uses the same engine as AOC, but I don't think its as good as AOC. Maybe it is just the setting? That said not being as good as AoC is not bad, TSW is still a great looking game.

Freeloading mooches are the scourge of the gaming community.

Well I have to say for me it comes Down to 3 games. Just for sheer graphical awe.  Those being GW2, TERA, and AoC

all 3 of these virtual worlds re just very well graphically and artistically created.

i'm very slowly working on making a voxel virtual world online shooter.   wish i could find more like minded people to help me get it done much faster and keep me encouraged.  8)

The End
---------------------------
i don't expect to like Darkfall, altho i may like it MORE than other MMOs. i know it is gonna have a very frustrating level of grind to it, even if its significantly less than most. waiting for a pure FAST action virtual world. dice rolling & character levels (even "skills") IN COMBAT should have never carried over from pencil & paper to a computer that can reasonably model 3D spaces and objects

Has to be AoC imo.

Too bad it is zoned, unlike Lotro. Otherwise it would've been even more spectacular.

Most beautiful game i played so far?  Blade and Soul  hands down :P.(tough i played only a couple of days of beta)

Taken from a beta a year ago i think.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3pg_JyVHXQU

The environment/art/music is just crazy good.

 

But unless you can get a korean sn you cant play T_T.

 

So for now the best suggestion i have tryed out would seems to be Lotro.Eve online is amazing but might be missing the beautiful world your looking for.

I can see why someone would say minecraft has the most beautiful world.  Just knowing how real the world is in minecraft, how legitimate each piece of it is, that you can tear it down or reconstruct it or mold it to your whim.  There is something beautiful about that, like the way some nice paper looks on your esel (sp?) before you paint it.  Or a painting looks that you made yourself.

(cough) As much as I would like to see more sandbox elements, Minecraft is not a beautiful world. Horses for courses and all that. :)

LOTRO do have pretty ugly avatars though but the world do look great.

My problem with LOTRO, beside the fact that the graphics have aged as well as the engine (some landscape elements, like rocks or hilltops, are very unnaturally "spiky" for instance), is the repetitiveness of many elements. For instance, you see the same ruins in Mirkwood than you were seeing in The Shire as a noob, and sadly you still have those same ruin model and textures in the latest Rohan areas.

Another thing is the sheer uglyness of some hillsides, where you could see the pattern of repetitive textures, but they seem to have gotten a bit better at texturing hills lately with the Rohan areas. This kind of detail may be invisible to the random player, but since I work in graphics for 20+ years, I can't help but notice that kind of things, specially when they are as obvious as in LOTRO. They have DX10 and DX11 features (the DX10 shadows were a nice evolution), but apparently they haven't learned how to use a pixel shader to eliminate the texture repetitiveness.

LOTRO was good back in 2007, but despite adding futile DX11 features, it's no longer at the top technically wise, and that shows in landscape graphics when compared to more recent games.

1. LoTRO

2. EVE

3. Final Fantasy XIV

 

I can't consider Pandaria and GW2 beautiful, because of how cartoonish they both are. They look very well technically and unique but it's just not my taste :)

Cant believe so little people (if any) mentioned Age of Wushu. This game deserves more attention. The world there is incredibly beautiful

Well, I won't argue about WoW... but saying that GW2 is "cartoonish" when you have FFXIV in your top 3 list is... strange, at the least.

LoTRO is still the most beautiful world out there (characters/animations are a whole different story).
