Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction, so what do you mean by "just scifi"?

It is like knowing Steampunk is an apple and then you say "just fruit". XD

Think of something witty and pretend that I typed it in this spot :)

Since we completely derailed though, and it's about time for me to get off.  How stupid are people though, based on my last post, to allow themselves to be talked into not wearing something that could possibly prolong their existence, and at the very least allow them to live long enough to get off at least one more shot, just because someone was gonna call them a dirty name? LOL

Screw that, call me a coward, it will probably be the last thing you call me while you are getting killed and I am doing the killing.

Just speculation but I bet it wasn't about being a coward at all.  I'll bet it was about resources and moral.  They probably couldn't afford to plate them all so they didn't plate any of them, and since they couldn't plate any of them they probably disallowed plate all together so that they didn't have a bunch of pay to win crying going on hehehe.

Maybe Jesus was an Eldar? Hmmm...

Anyhow, my vote goes to the HF. I love Elves(tho not all adaptations of them), Knights and Magic. In other words I love Warhammer Fantasy and LoTR both. As for steampunk, I see the appeal, but it's not for me imo.

Jesus Built My Hot Rod.*  Must've been Steampunk.

 

I wouldn't mind having a bit of both 'punk and fantasy tossed in the mix.  Of course, I've been playing an absurd amount of Skyrim lately - Dwemer ruins with dragons and such.

Steampunks are goths that discovered brown :)

Seriously as much as fantasy MMOs have been done to death, I just dislike goth-steampunk a great deal.

Now if it is done well, the setting or theme doesn't matter to me, as good gameplay overshadows everything.

Cheesy steampunk and cheesy vampire/goth are the worst of the worst IMO, my least favorite by a mile. I'd rather play Teletubbies MMO than either one of those, and I am not joking.

Really, when was the last true high fantasy Dark Ages MMO?

 

Prbably Lord of The rings... the rest of them all have modern things like guns or renaiusence themed zones in them... 

 

No... i really need something thats dark and creepy fantasy

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

The only problem with Steampunk is that it doesn't have a Baws version. By that I mean High Fantasy has a template, and everyone knows exactly what it is. Steampunk is more of an artistic style than a well established setting. I hate to say it, but Steampunk needs a "Hobbit" or "Lord of the Rings".

But I'm OK with both. I'd like to see a Steampunk game that wasn't just SciFi or High Fantasy with Steampunk stylings though.

**

The closest I've gotten so far is Alice: Madness Returns because of the Victorian setting, and Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, again because of the setting.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

Definitely fantasy, but I'd love to have a "dark fantasy" based MMORPG done right. All recent fantasy MMOs have "parasitic" elements like guns and technology, and also way too much "silly" stuff. I want a real "dark" fantasy MMO, without furry backpacks and colored silly flying mounts.

Conan tried that but sadly failed because of poor "funcomish" design.

Give me a well designed sandbox MMORPG based in the world of Elric of Menilboné (Michael Moorcock), done by a major developer and not by retarded amateurs like aventurine and co, and you will have me as happy customer for years to come. A Game of Thrones MMO done correctly would do the job too.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

Cute Steampunk choice description and was very tempted to pick that.

I prefer a mix personally.  Absolutely loved the world of Arcanum where steampunk and fantasy pewpew existed and often collided with each other.

What I DON'T want is where a fantasy games puts in trashy "hipe" elements like WoW's goblins who are so overdone with the hiphop culture it's nauseating, same with the Worgen and the English or DA2 with the Dalish Elves and the Irish.

Both.

Although high fantasy has been overdone in games. More steampunk to add variety will be nice.

Steampunk: I do not think this word means what you think it means.

I've had more than enough high fantasy, I'd love a good steampunk game.

Someday, someone will make one. I'd kill for an Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura mmo.

Edit: I'd also love a good cyberpunk game. Looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 from CDProjekt RED. Maybe someone will make an mmo afterwards.

Yes. Because if it's not one or the other, you just have High Fantasy with a different paint job. High Fantasy has a pretty clear definition, Steam Punk doesn't.

The problem is that Steampunk is as much an artistic style as it is a genre of science fiction or fantasy. There actually exists a Steam Punk Museum and Steam Punk art exhibits at museums around the country, and at the University of Oxford in the UK. As an Art Genre, it's pretty well defined, or at least you'll know it when you see it. Not so much for the story side of things.

As an art style, it's easy to just give a High Fantasy setting a Steam Punk overlay and call it a day, but there's also a Victorian "Gas Light" element that goes missing when you do that.

High Fantasy here. I almost hate steam punk. This is why Black Gold has caught my eye. High Fantasy, and Steampun on opposite sides of a 300km map.

That looked very interesting..until they said open world PvP.

Still waiting for a good one.

I am tired of the High Fantasy (Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes) as well as the Low Fantasy (Medieval, Dark Ages) MMOS.

They have been done to death.

Id love to see a good Steampunk, or Wild West MMO made.

Steampunk. Preferably without magic thrown in for "reasons".

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil
