No, not so much.  75% of people claim they would play a sandbox, but I'd wager most of them are actually playing themeparks.  Personally, I'd rather play a sandpark but since nobody makes good sandparks, or sandboxes for that matter, I don't.  If I'm going to play, I'll play a themepark because I live in the real world, not some fantasy where they actually make decent sandboxes.

The mmorpg is in such a sad state right now.

Man... so many disappointments.

As a sandbox fan you were playing Eve, waiting on Dark Fall, Mortal Online, Earthrise, Fallen Earth. All ended up being terrible.

Perpetuum the "Eve Online with mechs" was a failure, Saga of Ryzom returned and died in under six months. 


As a themepark fan you had WoW... Games like Lotro, WAR, AoC, Aion, FFXIV, RIFT, SWTOR, TERA, TSW are all either dead with a 80% population drop off or Free... 

GW2 ended up being good but now i find myself simply keeping it on my HDD because it doesn't have a sub fee...


Sorry OP but I can't recommend anything... Not in the mmorpg genre. 

maybe we should all leave this genre, Single player RPG and Action-Rpg seem to be doing much better at the moment. 

Go play Skyrim, Dark Souls, Torchlight 2 or Path of Exile and give these sad developers of the mmorpg genre a decade to work out their issues.

Playing: None

Waiting on: None

  The best mmo I played was Shadowbane,

The best I play now are TSW,    Vanguard,      Fallen  Earth


Of these fallen earth would be the closest to a sandbox but it has a million quests so sandbox does not really fit.  There are no games I hate, there are some that do or did not fit with my playstyle like WOW, EQ and EQ2, SWG, Eve etc but even in those there were a few things I liked,  just not enough to play for very long

I am a bit unusual in that I prefer a good mix of the two.  I love the story, design accessabilityand easability of the themepark.  Things like Mail Boxes, Auction Houses, group finders, local meeting/gathering points, skill/talent trees, meaningful gold sinks, and factions. 


Add that into the things I like I about a Sandbox such as skill based class systems, open world zoneless seemless worlds, non instanced dungeons, player housing, dynamic loot systems, and skill based gameplay. (i.e. beaing able to tackle content based on my skill and not on arbitrary numbers).

Both are fine when done right seeing as how i've enjoyed both themepark and sandbox games. I'd like to see another decent sandbox released though given what few are good are really old and played through at this point.

Top 3 games would be EQ1, DAoC, and...I don't know. FFXI I guess, but it's a toss between a lot of other games.

Currently playing Vanguard and Ryzom.

People want sandbox games that wll be played as themeparks. That's why they're waiting for sandbox but playing themeparks.

Let's take Darkfall. The game was great. But it's an open world pvp with full loot and very little safe place. And people hate such games. They want sandbox games are being played like WoW: to lose nothing when dying and be able to kill mobs in safe instances. But nobody makes such games.

I voted Sandbox cause the only MMo i will play is a sandbox game


#1. Ultima online (free server)


ive tried other MMo's but they all seem quest based which will keep me interested for about a day or two tops. i cant stand the whole "go kill this and come back, now go retrieve this and come back, ok now go bring this over there and come back". seems empty and dull. plus if you stop playing for an extended period of time and pick it back up i feel like i am lost in the story line and it becomes even less interesting.


Ultima Online will always keep my attention because i could never accomplish everything in the game within my lifetime plus the gameplay is mostly based on the people you play with rather than a set path that everyone must go down. WIth UO basically they say heres 1000;s of items that can interact with one another a giant f-in map and a complex gear vs envrinment system. go have fun. i sport 5 different armor suits and switch between about 5 different weapons depending on which envronment i feel like heading into. not to mention an incredible crafting system, and custom house building. a virtue system. a faction pvp system. a safe haven for noobs and several common meeting grounds for the pro pvp'ers. noob guilds for beginners and guilds that will train you to be a killing machine. its got it all.

I've played mostly themeparks but remain hopeful that a Sandbox game will be entertaining enough in the future, so keeping an eye on a few Sandbox style games, ArcheAge, WoD, The Repopulation, Pathfinder Online, maybe one of those will have something special.

So, voted Themepark.

Top 3


2.City of Heroes

3.World of Warcraft

Currently playing The Secret World, Guild Wars 2, Star Wars: The Old Republic

I will always prefer sanbox mmorpg's over crappy themepark wannabe's. The themepark genre is dead, they have axed it to death in every way possible. In fact I won't even play themeparks anymore.


  I'm just completely sick of the boringness. I might as well race snails rather than playing themeparks which haven't done anything revolutionary or new, or inspiring to the genre.
