Ideal for MMOs: bronze age city states, gods, demons, cults, magic but more subtle than fireballs.

I agree :) .... You could take it a step forward and make a hub City lets call it Tanelorn which could protal the user to any of the Eternal Champion worlds  (the game could basically be any genre the players wanted to play in).

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but Doctor Who would make an interesting MMO.

The late G. H. Stien's Warbot series for those that like mechs.

David Veber's Honor Harrington books.

Mercedes Lackey The 500 Kingdom books.  But it would be a very hard series to do as a game.  One up side to it would be the GM's should be the God Mothers playing an active roll in the game.

Not sure how Ghost in the Shell anime series would do as a game.

Robotech I think would make a good ground/air/space combat game if done right.

Really would like to see ElfQuest made into a MMORPG. ElfQuest was the third rail of fantasy in the 70s and 80s. On one side you had Tolkien and on the other end you had Dungeons and Dragons but in the middle was the psychedelic fantasy world of ElfQuest created by Wendy and Richard Pini. The ElfQuest series has been in print for 35 years and has an incredible ammount of Lore and history built into it. ElfQuest is the largest untapped fantasy IP just waiting for people to explore. This would be the Perfect setting for a deep and immersive MMORPG.

When they started up the new Doctor Who series back in 2005 I thought the same as they went on.

Create your Time Lord, design what your TARDIS looks like(chameleon circuits can be wonky), unlock/collect companions, quick travel, etc., lots of things this franchise has just fits the MMO concepts perfectly.

Wrong the original SWG was great and a few 100K people agree with that.  There are several other instances however, I won't be going into them.  Your opinions are not fact.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

In total darkness, I look just like Brad Pitt.

6/08/13 11:54:43 AM#53

Shannara

World of Greyhawke

Midkemia

Krynn

Dragon Age (there is a movie, so this counts)

Excalibur

Firefly

Bloodsport (Kaz O'shea anyone?)

Sword & the Sorcerer

Hawke the Slayer (Mindsword vs Jack Palance)

The Magic Sword (campy movie, but has all the elements of a fantasy MMO)

Harry Potter (would need a new approach to magic, only 6 levels to correspond with school years)

Dragon Slayer

Legend (anything by David Gemmel)

Willow

Highlander

Flesh and Blood (mercenary oriented game, huge potential for PvP)

The Black Cauldron (the book, not that lame Disney fare)

The Rings of Allaire (Susan Dexter)

Krull

 

The list goes on....

Matthew Woodring Stover, specifically the Caine novels (Heroes Die, Blade of Tyshalle, etc).  The whole "Actor" entering the Overworld is perfect for explaining why you're in that world doing heroic stuff.  Plenty of factions on Overworld, and a few races as well.  You could even link in the real Earth factions and have Social Police wielding high-tech gear as some higher level content.  Playing a Knight of Khryll... yes, please.  Or an Ogrillo Black Knife... 

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you're missing out on one of the baddest anti-hero stories around.

None

History shows mmos (and games in general) based on non gaming ips usually turn out shite.

Tango and Cash, the first book, not the follow-up garbage.

That's just, like, my opinion, man.

What makes a good mmo isn't the setting which is what movie/books would bring to it.   Gameplay is what makes a game good.  That comes down to design and implementation.

Books are books for a reason.  They're not meant to be games.  I see a lot of excellent works of literature ITT and I can't help but think they would be absolutely disgraced if turned into an MMO.

The Talisman by Stephen King/Peter Straub.

A boy could travel to another dimension.He could be in New York and travel to this other dimension.Once there he could travel and experience that world and then come back to our dimension and be in Texas.

I think a mmo with 2 dimensions would work.You could have 1 that is more like the real world and 1 that is dark and scary.Place events in both dimensions,so they feel more alive.You could even overlap the events so peeps would have to make a choice.

You could make both dimensions part mobs/scary to kill and level up.Also make both calm part of the time.

Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!
