 As much as I agree with you I have a problem with most events that are held as they are generally not extremely original and a lot of times are pointed at players who are very high in level.

Not all mmorpgs are like that but I find a lot are.

For example: I don't consider "Find the GM" events to be extremely original as most mmorpgs have this kind of event.

Hide and seek.  Yeah, I'm going to pay $15.00 a month to play, Hide and seek, and rock paper scissors, and musical chairs.  Yeeeeaaaaaahhh  riiiiiiiight.

 The sad part is a lot people do pay $15.00 a month to play hide and seek.

I suposse a lot of people enjoy it just because GM's in games are looked upon as gods.

I don't really care either way because I've never gotten excited at the thought of seeing a GM in any mmorpg I play.

Question: Are Fantasy mmo's (sic) Becoming Old?

Short Answer: Yes

Longer Answer:  MMOs are designed and financed by a generation of people who got their inspiration from reading Tolkien, among others.  Until recently, their product was targetted at a generation of people who also read Tolkien and similar works.  Once those people move on, and are replaced by a younger generation of designers, financiers, and consumers, you may see a change. 

The problem, of course, is that today's generation doesn't read anything unless it's available on the internet and accompanied by a music video full of scantily clad women.  So if you want a change in genres, stay in school.  Learn to program/design/develop your own MMO.  Stop expecting people to know what you like when you can't even figure it out for yourself.

I'm not even going to play hide and seek, rock paper scissors, for free.  Heck, once you've played your first rock paper scissors game you've played them all.

sounds like you've played some crappy games with crappy GMs :(

if you check out Achaea i think you'll be surprised at how much the GMs interact with the players and come up with new and original stuff, they never do "find the GM" events or hide and seek or musical chairs. One event they did in Achaea had everyone getting sick from fishing in the rivers, and people were passing the sickness to eachother. Another event they did introduced a whole new continent to the game for players to sail to.

 I never said anywhere that I expect people to know what I like.

Also I know what I like fairly well.

No need to get rude in a thread that's supossed to be a fun discussion.

I actually love it, but the theme does get old when nothing new is added in a mmorpg environment.

I'm curious, why do you hate fantasy?

For a lot of reasons actually.  First off, as many have said, it's all the same in the MMO universe.  Same old generic fantasy tropes with a little different window dressing, but largely if you've played one, you've played them all.  Secondly, I hate magic.  This comes from reading so many bad fantasy novels in my youth, where magic is so often used as an illogical "get out of thinking rationally" card.  Write yourself into a corner?  Wave your wand, wiggle your nose and you're out!  Doesn't matter if you had to violate all of your "rules" to do it, everything you've established up until that point, magic means never having to think about it critically.

Sorry, I can't stand that.  I want a game that has nothing even remotely resembling magic.  Pure hard sci-fi would be wonderful.

 Unfortunately, I'll have to disagree with you, as I don't like sci-fi in an MMORPG setting.

I do enjoy sci-fi though in movies, but when put into MMORPGS I'm turned off (even by Star Wars).

Developers of MMORPGS nerf us today so they can sell us tommorow what we had yesterday.

10/12/11 4:43:03 PM#97

I think sci-fi mmorpgs are much more boring.  I prefer fantasy mmorpgs......usually the magic in mmorpgs is set to do one thing for each spell.  It cannot do anything.....

==========================
The game is dead not, this game is good we make it and Romania Tv give it 5 goat heads, this is good rating for game.

The fantasy theme has been prevalent in games since Akalabeth came out in 1979 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akalabeth:_World_of_Doom).  I really don't see it going anywhere.

Is it getting old?  I doubt it in the sense of the general gaming market at least.  If fantasy has stayed strong for over three decades, I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.

Obviously though it will get old to individuals...but I don't think so many that it will affect the market at all.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

 I think you're right in that assessment.

I would just love to see something new for once.
