get happy.  stop being so depressing.  I'm sure there will be serious undertones to certain character creation options.  More creases and wrinkles on the faces, and grey hair.  I'm 22 and still in touch with my inner child.  Maybe you should share the load, as Sam Gamgee said, and maybe become a little more innocent, and believe that there is some good in this world, and that it's worth fighting for.  Disney or PIxar like character models can be fun, especially if you want to make a Flynn Rider character.  I call it!

Most people who started playing eq were in thier teens, and are now adults, and make up the player base of EQ franchise.

 

And that number is jaded as hell.   It is a F2P game, so you create an account and try it.  Bam.  Every single person who has the smallest desire that they want to play it will at least try it.

 

As for your original post, I have no idea what you posted.  I can't imagine living a life to where you can't be happy.  I could be dying and my whole world falling apart (kids getting some kind of terminal illness about the only thing I can see making that happen) but you sure in the hell bet I'll still crack a smile and be happy.  Be more optimistic.

So I will admit seeing the Lion King running around... kind of put me off.   However, I will just play a different race as the others didn't look so bad to me.   Altho I am not a very serious person so perhaps the Lion King will be a good one for me.   Especially since I can just lounge around in town while the females go out and hunt....

The industry is chasing console gamers, have been for the last decade and it's showing in all of our modern MMOs.  Complex, PC oriented MMOs are probably going extinct after Final Fantasy XIV.  Action combat, 6 ability hotbars, cheesy graphics that only a console video card could love, simplistic, twitchy / arcadish gameplay, dumbing down if not outright removal of the need to think or do puzzles or frankly, much of anything outside of combat.  This is the future I'm seeing unfolding right in front of me and I find myself getting really sad.

Are GW2 and Neverwinter targeting consoles?  Final Fantasy XIV is on consoles, so was Final Fantasy 11 for the past 10 years. Cheesy graphics? The Division and Destiny, mmos that are coming to consoles have the most realistic graphics I've seen in the genre. Planetside 2 is coming to PS4 also with max settings and 2000 players on map.  In fact majority of the console market appeal to the games with the most realistic graphics like Metal Gear, Resident Evil, Splinter Cell, Gears of War, Final Fantasy, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, i could go on.  The game portal a puzzle game happen to be very popular, same for Zelda on consoles. And on top of that there plenty of indie puzzle games that are becoming popular on consoles, games like Flower and Journey.  Little Big Planet is big and thats a very creative game.

PC gamers love twitchy arcadish gameplay just as much otherwise games like unreal tournament and quake wouldnt have been so popular.  In fact consoles slowly adopt whats been popular on PCs.

I can see somewhat where the OP is coming from.  I've tried to spark up conversations around here about adult-targeted MMOs.  My line of thinking was around modeling a game that was basically "rated R" in style and content.  Even most rated Mature games these days are pretty tame, such as The Secret World.

Pre-NGE Star Wars Galaxies had drug use (Spice) for buffs, and you would even come down, and your character would emote puking.  That's considered pretty hardcore by today's standards, and they pulled it out of the NGE.  Pipeweed smoking in LOTRO is too.  

http://swg.wikia.com/wiki/Spices

MMOs just cost so much to make that it's prohibitive to deal with a niche market like "adult gamers who want a truly rated-R style game".   Then again, when you look at games like GTA, the market for such a thing may be bigger than anyone knows. Trouble is getting a developer to take the leap.

As far as graphics in EQN go, well, I still believe that the procedural generated land and assets dictated to some extent what the art was going to have to look like.  The character's overall art matches the world right now, though I don't see why that had to limit having some mean looking characteristics to harden them up a little.

Really we don't know yet.  We have an idea what they look like, but we haven't see a character generator.  This is one of those issues that I would be sure to provide feedback about and get the player base to rally around it, because it wouldn't be hard for SOE to at least make sure we can make some mean looking cartoonish-style characters.  I know this isn't what the OP wants, but unless there is a MASSIVE outcry about the current models, they likely won't do much about them before release.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

In general I'm a fairly happy person. But in my MMO I don't want to play a character that looks like a cartoon.

 

I understand that the enlarged facial features may make it easier to see emotions and I understand the uncanny valley arguement. But this games facial features go so far back off from the realistic side of uncanny valley that they have fallen right off of  cartoon gulch.

 

This game will be successfull. But it would be more successfull if they changed the facial features.

 

If you can't relate to your avatar then this is a major immersion breaker.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

I just nver got the whole argument of art style. Not that it is more 'cartoony' I suppose 'less realistic' but how people can have the mentality its 'disney' or 'childish'. Don't know, to me people who have that mind set are very childish themselves. If you think that an art style suddenly makes things child like and can't be adult, watch the move Up. Go ahead, watch it and return to me after. Sure the first 10 minutes alone could work plenty for that but go see the whole movie.

 

 

 

 

... Keep watching it, I'll wait and continue after you finish...

 

 

 

 

...Yeah, there hasn't been a "mature" movie that tugged at your heart so much as up huh? "Depressing" huh, yet managed to give a more upbeat and sure tear jerking but happy moment at the end? Amazing how a movie can reach not only children, but adults and do so far better then any "mature" movie has done lately with gritty scenes and 'adult' content? Its fine for you not to like an art style, trust me, its not a big deal. Its when you throw it instantly into being 'childish' or 'for kids' that you really are stepping out of line and it feels more as if you are trying to fight desperately to say you are 'grown up', like a tween does trying to disassociate themselves from cartoons even if they do use to love them to be 'cool' and 'older'.

Don't like it for being more 'cartoon like' but NEVER EVER associate it with being childish. That in itself is a childish way to handle things.

That number is also small.

EQ at it's highest point had 450,000 subscribers.

Assuming 100% of the player base was polled (which of course, didn't happen): 33% is 148,500 people.

Now, that's not really a small number, but at the same time I really doubt EQN was designed to cater to 150k people. That would be financial ruin. So when you see people say, "SOE is turning off A LOT of people with their aesthetic." or "ALL my friends hate it." Well that may be the case, 150k is a lot of people and all of your friends may hate it, but you're still the minority by a fair margin.

Not only does SOE have the remaining 66%, but they also have new players who didn't play EQ and currently play MMOs - which is in the millions. So even if they grab a small fraction of those available players, it'll still be more than the 33% of original EQers.

Maybe it's just me but your logic is flawed so i stopped reading. You lost me at LOTRO's realistic graphics... Did we play the same game? Maybe you played some moody adult version that I havn't heard of?

Puritzul- "Amazing how a movie can reach not only children, but adults and do so far better then any "mature" movie has done lately with gritty scenes and 'adult' content? Its fine for you not to like an art style, trust me, its not a big deal."

 

I agree that you can have empathy for characters whether its in a cartoon or not. Overall I think that the artwork in the environment is beautiful. Everquest landmark is also a fantastic idea. Everquest next will be successful .But the avatar that you make has to be something you can relate to.

 

I can watch 'Up' and be emotionally moved by the characters. Do I want the character that I play for hundreds of hours to look like the grandpa from up?... I dont think so.
