OP  4/22/13 3:41:33 PM#1

Have you ever played an MMO, and thought to yourself that the game would be as good, or possibly better if it were not an MMO but a single player game?

I've thought this about The Secret World. The game is fine as an MMO, but the content matter seems ideal for a single player game and the feel of the game seems much more in tune with a single player game where you are on your own. I will admit that the idea of resources being diverted from MMO mechanics resulting in a higher quality game also runs around my head sometimes. :-)

What about you? Has there been an MMO you've played where you would actually prefer to play the game offline? What if the game was a by invite multiplayer game? If so, let us know what that game is, and if you know why, let us know too.

Now keep in mind, this isn't a question of whether or not a game is actually an MMO. It's about games that are marketed as MMOs, where you'd prefer to play them offline.

I don't have a poll because I think it's possible that the list of offline MMOs could exceed the number of poll options. There's no way I'd think of every possible offline MMO option.

** ** ** **

I saw this question on Massively.com. I didn't come up with it myself.

My thoughts on MMO as a Single Player RPG

There are MMOs that I think would be much better rewritten as a single player RPG.
There are MMOs that would be a better experience, if only there were far fewer or no other players in most of the game.
There are MMOs that would be much better if they were Single Player/Multiplayer Player run servers, like Minecraft.
The mechanics of MMOs are superior to single player RPG - there are none that I would play as a single player RPG or multiplayer RPG.
MMO mechanics should not be part of single player RPG (even though that's not what the OP is talking about).
I'll take a muffin please, and thank you.

The big reason I want an MMO is for the other players. I really don't want an offline part of it, not even for other players, because that's not the sort of game I want to spend time in. I don't care if there are MMOs that have the option, just not in the one I want to play.

Well yeah. I didn't start playing TSW thinking, "I want to play an offline game, but instead, I'll play this." I started playing TSW and realized that I thought the game's content and style would be better enjoyed as a single player game. TSW is the only MMO where I've had this thought. It seemed unique.

The Secret World obviously, a game that I enjoyed greatly except for all his MMO parts. A shame really, it would have made a quite unique and enjoyable single player game.

EVE :) so I can explore universe without getting one shot , but from other side why would I want to play any MMO offline if there is much more fun to play it with friends.

FFXI would be really fun if they could scale the level process to match that of a single player game.  There's so much story content and side quests in it.  But I guess that goes without saying since it's a 10 year old game.  Even when I was playing it and content was relevant, I felt like I could never keep up with it.

The theme of the game is survival horror and solving mysteries. I think they did a good job of having this in an MMO setting, but I think those types of things just work better in a single player setting. While they do make a big deal of the idea that you are just a soldier in an army, it still feels like they expect you to feel special or that they want you to feel like a standout character. That's a much easier thing to do in a single player game.

I am also loathe to admit it, but I think the development resources that went into the MMO aspects of the game would have been better spent on the stories, character animations, and some of the combat. If they didn't have to worry about latency and network bandwidth, the combat could have been smoother.

I imagine a game like Fallout or Skyrim, but within the world of "The Secret World". You could even have the multiplayer dungeons or raids but just not have them integrated into the main world.

Anyway, like I said, TSW is the only MMO where I've really had this thought. It just seemed like a better fit for single player instead of multiplayer.

I would play TSW as a single player and agree that it would be well suited to that genre. Conversely, Oblivion is the only single player game I really, really wished was an mmo.

none. There are lots of great single player games to play that are superior to mmorpg's in most aspects except for the social end of things.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

I'd play SWTOR offline if I could but not all the time. I wouldn't want the game to be even more empty and quiet than it is.

 

The question almost sounds like, "what MMO would be better if it was offline?" Which is silly. No MMO is better once you remove all the players.

None; there are better single player games out there than any mmo in terms of gameplay.

What single player game needs to be an MMO is an entirely different question. :-)

I'm not talking about simply removing all the players, though it's entirely fair that is the impression that you got. It would also be a fair question to ask I think. What MMO would be better if you could just get rid of all the other players for most of the content?

To clarify my question and stance a little bit, I think TSW would have been better had it been developed as a single player game, with possible, optional multiplayer elements. I think it's fine as an MMO, and certainly worth the box price, but while playing it I keep thinking it would be better as a single player game.

Was about to say SWTOR myself, and you're right about TSW as well.

Funny to see this thread there BTW. I was talking about this problem earlier on today in my SWTOR guild and almost everyone agreed that SWTOR is more a single player game than a MMORPG. I for once am sure not to add extra time to my sub when I've hit cap and seen all worlds. Game seems pointless after that and to level a new character only for the personal story seems silly as well. Perhaps one char on the other side to have seen it all, but that's about it...
