Sixth: Proper LOTR adaptation. None of this Turbine stuff. Any age works.

Indeed, that would be nice. When Turbine dropped "MEO" (Middle-Earth Online) to switch to "WoW clone" mode renaming the game "LOTRO" (Lord of the Rings Online), I was really, really pissed.

Dragonlance during the War of the Lance would make an amazing MMO if they stuck to the stories and didn't go for the a typical PvP centered crap we end up with today that always messes with lore. Allow the players to only play the free races fighting against the over whelming dragon forces.

For a western style MMO, The Dark Tower series would be the one to go with. Deep and has just enough magic to make it fantasy.

Personally I would love to see an MMO take place during the age of Rome done right and kept historically accurate. Having it right around the time of the Roman civil wars right after Nero would allow players to play from virtually any nation as well as Rome giving plenty of opportunity to set up wars trying to overthrow Rome...or defend it.

GOOD CHOICES!! I'd be behind those, The Elric setting would be especially great choice because you have his whole fantastic mulit-verse as expansion possibilities (I'd love some of his other settings like the Dark Empire of Granbretan, which has both magic and technology)

Shadowrun would be nice but atm i can't see it being implemented in a working way. (unless it were missing core "features" like STO does) But more important than the setting are the game's features imo.
I'd second the call for a Babylon 5 setting.   I've got my 'Fah' hotkey all ready programmed.

I'd be a lot more leery of a Buck Rogers setting, as the 80s version would almost have to have a Gary Coleman appearance.  I'd go with Flash Gordon instead (either the 1936 serial or the 1980 film or the comic strip especially the early years 1934-40).

For myself, I'd love to see a version of Larry Niven's Ringworld made into an MMORPG.   Even a pre-Ringworld setting in Known Space would be wonderful.


I would love a classic (the old comics) Flash Gordon, not campy, it could be great fun. The various races of Mongo, and the technology, robots and ray-guns! (even possible magic, or magic-like technology) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongo_%28planet%29

i think focusing on a specific lore, with very specific characters in it, in the end just does not work out well for devs or players of an mmo.

 

also, why would you want to play in any medieval setting (early or late) without magic? there's a reason we don't continue to live that way when given the opportunity.

 

however, i understand the desire to break from the high fantasy trope.

 

im really looking forward to Cyberpunk 2077 the single player rpg. so perhaps a cyberpunk mmo would be pretty cool. it provides its own explanation as to how almost *everyone* ends up with special abilities without relying on another trope: everyone's a hero. (i found DCUOs handling of that quite good actually.)

 

but again, as much as i loved Deus Ex, i dont think i would want to see a game based on that storyline/timeline. just create a cyberpunk world. one that lives and breathes. and then let us explore and relate to it and in it.

One could be called finite, the other infinite.
A finite game is played for the purpose of winning,
an infinite game for the purpose of continuing play."

there has been no good "Horror" mmo with the exception of the amazing The Secret World. I'd love to see vampires v/s werewolves in pvp, witches, etc etc etc Set it either in an old world setting or a new world setting, I don't care. A lot could be done with it. Different classes of Vampires and witches and werewolves, and of course the "hunters". Factions could be set up across the boards, but no faction grind. Pvp "ranks" or "degrees" depending on your class and race. Etc etc

Matrix Online was actually pretty interesting and had unique combat. Sure it wasn't fast paced in today's mmo genre where you have to constantly mash buttons and watch cooldowns with out much paying attention to the fight unless you have plenty of macro's set up. I've found things TOO fast paced lately. It's hard to really pay attention to combat when you are constantly keeping an eye on buttons. Matrix Online's downfall was it's design of instances, how most of them were too similar. At the same time I agree. I would LOVE to see a deep cyberpunk game.

I would like to see mmorpg with new lore that is inspired and not generic, that is all!

Industry works in a brutal way, where company decides to make a game, plans game mechanics, and then hires a bunch of writers to make up some background story for it.

I would like to see a situation, where idea comes first and then game is built around it. Some single players have soul, every mmorpg feels like the lore was created to compliment game mechanics, while story telling should be priority in my opinion. Specially in rpg genre.

And I also think that after so many years and so many games, people should have at least that tiny bit of imagination to pull off something more original than another elf and dwarf race. It just feels to lazy after all this time.

I'm fond of the medievalish theme, but I'd like something a bit darker than most current MMOs, possibly with angels and demons. World of Diablo would be nice.

  1. I would love a good, in-depth Steampunk setting with an emphasis on crafting and invention. None of this aesthetic steampunk veneer painted over a traditional themepark mmo, but a world built by players using a very detailed, complex system of steampunk technology where the society that advances the fastest can acheive dominance. A nice ffa pvp sandbox driven by a flexible and broad system of invention and crafting, basically. Perks for organization and order to promote some semblance of order, but ultimately complete freedom to shape your setting as you see fit with the miracles of steam devices. Original setting rather than Victorian to facilitate a player-created society rather than a society that constrains players with pre-existing conventions.
  2. A mmorpg of "ascension." Players can, through PvP, sometimes achieve a sort of demi-god status. This allows them to accept followers (other players) which they can bestow blessing upon and favor in battle in an active sense. If your followers act contrary to your wishes, you can revoke their powers. The purpose of the game is to eliminate all other would-be-gods via your followers and your own abilities, should you decide to risk your demi-godhood in battle. Alliances could be formed as a sort of pantheon if there is a common cause, leading to all manner of possibilities for  civil holy wars down the road. Perhaps the game could be a perma-death game unless one is aligned to a demi-god, and that player is responsible for all resurrections among his/her followers. Perhaps different "god" classes to choose from to reflect the different ideologies of differing faiths, and maybe a limit on the number of demi-gods who can exist at one time. You know, to encourage good ole-fashioned uprising-deicide.
  3. A mmorpg based on raising and riding flying mounts. Kinda Pern-like. A world of floating islands up for grabs as one or another faction seeks dominance. Plenty of dungeons and ruins and forts to seek out to balance out the ground and air action. Each faction could have different mounts with different strengths and weaknesses. Griffons are badass, but have no distance attacks, while perhaps drakes are hollow-boned squishies with powerful breath attacks, ect. Control the skies locally against opposing player factions to reap the rewards of the islands in the region. Build up your fort's surface-to-sky defenses to strengthen that control. The more diversity in your faction's island catalogue, the better gear you can make for players and mounts alike, not to mention rare foodstuffs found on contested islands that can advance your mount's powers in various ways.

Diablo is already close enough to a MMO. It is about small group dungeon runs and loot. I doubt one can add much more fun (particulalry to me) if you turn diablo into a full MMO.

A lot of cool Ideas already.

1.

I would love to see a SCI-FI Universe where players are given the opportunity to create the races in a contest before the game is developed, then the top 30 races are voted for and each gets a planet in a Galaxy. The players select the race they want to play and get to help design that planet, lore and atmosphere.

The game  needs to be crafting and resource dependent heavy. Great spaceships where skills like computer / gunner/ navigator/ doctor, even cook come into play so your crew is key. Space battles over resources, or bandits or planet exploration. Let players go wild building on their planet and conquering space. Race alliances, or battles, all based on individuals like a good RPG-MMO should be.

No Classes just skills!!!! I am not talking EVE like but a real MMO-RPG.

 

2.

A Surreal setting based on the planes, where players enter into realms unknown, where each realm is different and the rules change. Players would be forced to adapt, Anything goes, from guns to lazers to magic. Great for PvP also set three teams into a realm to aquire an item or multiple goals. Skill based, heavly dependant on character customization.

Dragonlance would be a fantastic setting for an mmo. 

Richard Blade series.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Blade_%28series%29

 

Read almost the entire series, great fun.  I think it could make another fantastic setting for an mmo.

  1. Western:  Red Dead Redemption style.
  2. Post Apocalypse Fantasy:  A world setting where a technologically advanced civ based on magic goes backwards due to cataclysmic event.  Mix of low magic tech and traditional fantasy.
  3. Steampunk
  4. Modern Fantasy
  5. Grimy Dark Ages with no magic
 
 
I would say those are my top 5 right now.  
 
EDIT:  Forgot an exploration game one huge server world with a lot of focus on trade, travel, resources and exploration.   A sandbox like discovering the "New World."

There are some games:

1. There was one in development somewhere can't remember.

2. Hell Gate London 

3. Final Fantasy XIV

4. World of Darkness (not out yet)

5. Can't think of anything yet

Below is where we can disscuss and come up with new ideas for Sandparks!
