OP  6/03/13 4:09:40 PM#1

In the genre plagued by uncreative games and by the drive to clone WoW's success, I am looking for good and creative games.

What an oxymoron!

I just can't stand tab target, bland quests, Dungeon grinds, reputation grinds, shallow stories, WoW combat, WoW animations, stand to cast, focus on the endgame, gameworld so bland that players have to bring it to life with an actual Heavy RP, "crafting", ... I mean this has got to end at some point or the other. We've sacrificed Conan, Warhammer, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Elder Scrolls(soon), DnD(Neverwinter- it should've been NWN 3!), LoTR(almost forgot this one lol!)... WHERE DOES THIS STOP???

I agree that we are seeing movement towards both sandboxes and hybrids, but currently we are in the gutter with all the shits, excrements and stuff. Woe be upon this genre...

(I think I'll play TSW+singleplayers until these suits{whose ties are so tight around their necks that they can't think-not enough O2} wake up and realise that you CAN'T REPLICATE WoW's success! Hell, even Blizz can't replicate that "perfect storm", let alone others.)

Is this a good idea? Is anyone else tired of current "MMOs"?

I want MMORPGs back, damn it!!!

There are many many many games on that list to the left that are not wow clones. 

Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

TSW is as much a WOW clone as the other games you mentioned, yet you seem to give that game a free ride.

WoW clone when WoW is a clone of EQ1 that started what made MMOs what they are today and EQ1 was a clone as well. Most people that use the term WoW clone dont even know what they are talking about. Do you mean the gear treadmill or the fact its got a hotbar? MMOs like any other line of games, take what works and add to it. Even FPS games all have the same basic elements. Same with RTS games. Time to start judging games on their quality not what is the same. Because when something really unique and new comes out, thats the games that get bashed the hardest by people here.

Currently MMOs have great variety of settings and mechanics. Star Trek, Star wars, super heroes, modern day conspiracies. The only "boring" sub-genre is fantasy, which is done to death.

If you look beyond just "true" MMO, and include MMO-like games, the choices are even better. Warframe, WOT, LoL, Star Conflict, Mechwarrior online, PS2 .. with different settings, different mechanics from FPS to space dog fights.

Online gaming is great.

Well, you do have a character. And a storyline happening around you. And levels. And equipment. And ......

The best is saying Tab Targeting=WOW clone.

What they hell were SOE thinking they didn't need to change their game, they obviously already had a WOW clone in SWG prior to any revamps.

Play Secret world: 

Generic quests, No

Generic game world, No

WoW/DnD style leveling, (As in you go from level one to level two etc...) No

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the whole I would agree with you. As someone has played WoW, when I took a break from WoW I wanted something different. If I want WoW I'll play WoW no a cheap knock-off.

Here are some games you should try:

EVE: space instead of fantasy, unique leveling system, hard core, sandbox

Darkfall UW: Haven't played this one but if it's like the original, first person it is miles away from WoW

Secret World: See above

GW2 (Not in most things but it takes a shot at getting rid of the trinity which is good, but hearts are just quest hubs where you automatically get the objectives when you enter the hub area)

Wurm: A sand box where if you cut down a tree it's gone, if you plant a tree it grows, build a house a road or whatever you want.

"I'm sick and tired of WoW clones!"

 

Why did you hate that new game that came out?

 

"It wasn't enough like WoW!"

I agree with ya OP

 

I been wanting  Ultima Online 2 now for 8+ years....

 

2 problems getting it atm.

 

1.  There is some false notion among mmorpg players that sandbox games are not fun. I believe this might be because the only sandbox to come out post WoW vanilla hitting the scene, was Darkfall. Darkfall has a known rep for being a cheaters paradise. This puts a bad taste in younger mmo players who didn't play and mmo before WoW/EQ2.

Eve is a great example of a fun sandbox. Ultima Online 1 in it's hayday was as well.

 

2.  People who never play just keeping their subscription going for placed/rare(?) pixels. Servers are dead, those who want mergers get shouted down by vets who, once again, don't want to loose placed pixels. I think UO could stay afloat with just 1k-3k subs with the skele crew and only needing a few basic servers to breath what little life it can maintain going. People who love ultima are really shooting themselves in the foot on this one.

 

But ya, like any pendulum, the mmo industry here soon might start swing back to sandboxes.

And a lot of them are. I'm not sure what your point is. Is it that you don't like any of those games? Because you can always play something more similar to WoW or move out of the genre if they don't spark your interest.
