Not just graphical upgrades but a general facelift & redesign would definitely take me back to UO.

If they shifted UO to third person view, full 3D with updated sound but kept the old gameplay systems & maybe added some questing ontop of the great sandbox they had it could be great IMHO.

Some of them...  Like these off the top of my head:

Starcraft 1

Diablo II

Phantasmagoria

Zelda LTTP and OoT

And here are a couple that I'd play right now but there aren't enough other people playing/server shutdown:

Planetside 1

SWG

Soldat

Many  people complain about graphics, and say a gaime looks 'dated'.

But some of the BEST games out there are older, from Jedi Academy to Ultima Online to Everquest, etc, I honestly think if they just updated the game engines / graphics a bit they'd have a lot of people want to check them out.

I realize purists will scream and say 'Ultima Online without the priginal glitchy 8-bit pixel swords is Wrong!' and so maybe it might require Ultima Onlina 2 or whatever, but so many games are a rehash of stuff from before, or else are inspired by / take from older games anyways. :)

I'd play Plentside 1 and SWG in a heartbeat as well :(

Actually I always wanted a Planetside 1 + SWG combination game, realtime shooter combat and mega-crafting, I'd literally buy a lifetime subscription if they ever made a game like that :)

And yeah I know SC2 has a BW custom map but nobody plays it so its hard to get a multiplayer going for it with people at my skill level.

They came out at the same time so I used to jump between them with my guild....  That was probably the greatest time for me as far as MMOs go.  Between them they had almost everything I could want.  Would be crazy to combine them.

Imo its one thing to play for nostalgia and another to play a modern game with bad graphics...i would never try a modern game with bad graphics because it usually means they didnt put nor will put much effort into it....There are 2 sides to a coin....imo both graphics AND gameplay matter, having one without the other is a no no.

Edit: That being said, hell yes id probably try a few i never got to play.

I don't know, UO's 2D graphics were part of the charm.

I thought EQ looked like garbage in comparison, and the 3rd Dawn 3Dish update to UO was a huge steaming pile.

Has anyone ever said they left a game because the graphics became dated?

Lots of people said exactly that about WoW. At least people I know personally - I may just know *a lot* of gfx whores.

Dunno about MMOs (though the longer running ones tend to look better with each expansion - if only somewhat), but other games? Sure.

I still play Counter-Strike and I probably wouldn't anymore if it weren't for Source and now Global Offensive.

I used to play new iterations of Unreal Tournament (before that game tanked - what a shame) which were basically the same game with better graphics (UT99->UT2k3/2k4->UT3).

I play a lot of the HD remakes on consoles like TMNT: Turtles in time, Street Figter 2 HD etc.

It's obvious some of these games were started by some sect or something, lmao, hool.

11/07/12 4:08:08 PM#52

I would play older games if they still existed. Or, if they were turned into mmo's i would play them. if the game was made well enough its not the graphics i want.

Best Regards, ...

I think just a graphics update to modern graphics for several games wouldn't get me to come back still. Now single player games like Final Fantasy 4,6,7,and 8 yeah, but then again I would play em now anyways. But I imagine you're talking about mmos, to which, eh not so much. I didn't quit WoW, DAoC, EQ, etc because of the graphics. It was I had grown tired of the game. It was just another raid where you jumped counter clockwise instead of clockwise or clicked a purple icon instead of a red one.

Now if they took say, EQ, updated the graphics, had SOME modern mmo updates(auction house for instance, though not the map, the lack of the map made the world seem more real.) but avoid things like quest hubs(maybe keep EQs quests, but have a way to track em) and start from EQ classic,(Odus, Antonica, and Faydwer.) and I would probably pick it up. Granted thats basically making a new game though lol.

Which means in short, probably no, no I wouldn't. If for no other reason than getting started in say, EQ would be terrible since most of the Xpacs are ghost towns and obsolete.

Im waiting for Darkfall: UW. Meanwhile, im playing on Trial account Dark Age of Camelot. Im testing all the classes i can until lvl 20 or so. Not much in the mood for hardcore gaming atm since DF is 1st choice. 

 

If DF will suck i will return to DAOC but i will still play all the new mmo. I find it hard to believe, but DAOC Is the best game ever, 2nd place FF11, 3rd place everything else. 

 

FF14: ARR sounds promising too!

No. I only play old games if they are really good. Old MMOs weren't that good.

EQ - original rules and only up to Velious expansion
SWG pre CU
DAOC original

Make any of these with DX 9 or better world and character models - fresh servers and I wouldn't even look at any other games

I left all three because of the horrid changes to the game , not graphics -

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

11/07/12 4:41:49 PM#58

No... see, updating graphics in many cases (given its a major change) usually alienates those old players who actually enjoyed the game and can actually make it harder to draw people in. Graphics aren't the only factor in a game and an older game will usually have mechanics in place that limit it. The graphics would only be a distraction that would likely make it worst off as nostologia is in part taken away making it harder to come back and enjoy the game.

 

Again, not ALL cases but in many this typically would be a problem. That being said, if they made another game using similiar basis and updating the graphics AND gameplay, then it can draw in a lot, its just not worth it if your just pasting it on an old game.

The problem with old games isn't just the graphics though. It is also the dated engine (which limits upgrades anyway) and the fact most of those old games are no longer the game they once were anyway expecially if they are themepark games.

 

Would l play a visually improved vanilla Wow that then decides to expand into a more sandbox style direction? Ya probably. This issue though is that the game today is nothing like when it was launched. All the expansions did was replace content and rarely actually added to it. You still leveled through maps you rarely went back to and tried to get to the latest and greatest raid ... no matter what expansion was added. All previous content became mostly pointless.

 

Now a game like Asheron's Call or true sandbox games where the world map is always in play and relevant ... ya those games would be pretty damn fun to head back to. Only if they were upgraded from the engine forward. This means you basically got a new game anyway so of course it is worth trying.

You stay sassy!
