I'm going to buck the trend here and say that, yes, I would like to see one of these games shut down and disappear and that would be SWTOR.

There won't be another, competing, SW MMO on the market as long as one already exists.  It doesn't make sense to have an IP competing with itself.

With the utter pile of garbage called SWTOR out of the way, then maybe work can begin on a SW MMO that doesn't reek.

I'd play single-player RPGs, which I think are better and more fun than MMOs anyway.


 I'm on of those. I was an old school single-player RPG'er that chaffed at the idea of paying to play a game after I bought it. So I missed UO, EQ, and didn't even try WoW until long after multiple expansions. It was LotRO that got me to break my policy, and that was entirely because of the lore. But lo I burned out on that in that I quit when I was in the low-40's. I've tried all kinds of MMORPG's since then, but not that held my interest for more than 3 months.

How not to sell me on a game: "And most people that make it past the tutorial seem to appreciate [x game's] uniqueness, even if they don't find it fun."

Well sir,you might actually care about OTHER people?

It is like saying..."Oh well my neighbour's house is getting robbed,but it doesn't concern me,so i don't care".

Imagine some people might be wasting their money and time on a game that might very well shut down  before they realize the whole game.

TIME is MUCH more valuable than money,any time you invest that might be lost before you are ready,can feel like a huge let down.

I can use an example >>>TAbula Rasa.How many people invested time expecting to playout the game,then realize their time spent was wasted.

How many people followed and read every article on Dark N Light ,for maybe a year or more,to finally realize NO GAME,they wasted al lthat time following that game.

There are also many people who build  Guild webpages and coordinate theri guilds structure and run everyday events.Imagine they put in al lthat effort and the game folds?



wow... simply wow.

"Allowing" someone else to play (and enjoy) a game you do not like equates to watching a neighbor get robbed. I cannot even begin to educate you on the many, many fallacies here.

You think you are the "Mother" to every gamer out there? You have shouldered the responsibility to save everyone who has different tastes than you from their folly. Oh joy...

What other aspects of life do you wish to save everyone else from, since you seem to know what is best for everyone? If someone wants to pay $200 for a pair of sneakers, do you run up and slap their hand for their folly? Maybe mention the many starving children in China? (Are there massive amounts of starving children in China?)

I show I "care" about other people by letting them enjoy what they want, spend their money how they desire, and not dictate to them what is "best for them."

If someone is enjoying a game, they decide if it is worth it or not, not you. Please, get a grip.

- Al

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

P.S. Space Cowboy/Ace Online/Air Rivals or whatever the hell it's called when your reading this has been passed around from company to company like the village whore. Someone please put this game out of its misery.

Why would you want to see any of them shut down?

 

You know people's livelyhoods depend on these games right?

can all of them coexist for ever ?

 

OP said "would like to see" not "want". To me this implies that he's only worried about the shutdown not about its employees. And indeed, most people aren't very worried about MMO devs. Part of the reason being that they can be employed onto the next MMO project, and having learned from their mistakes, do better. That's naively optimistic, in reality most don't care.

 

Still, all of these MMOs will shut down eventually. The poll is simply asking which shutdown you'd like to see. Liking or not liking to see this shutdown has no impact on the MMO employees. SWG proves this.

 

While your post is honorable, I think OP's post is not harming anything.

No bad karma for me. So i voted none of the above.

Exactly. I enjoyed Pirates of the Burning Sea, but they tried everything under the sun to make it successful and it just ain't happening. So I'd rather see them drop it and either rebuild a new one from scratch, or step aside and let someone else take a crack at a pirate MMO.

You mine as well make a poll which company you would like to see shut down.........I could already predict how that would go.

Secret World. No replay ability once you hit Nightmare mode and the PVP just stinks.

Wow can you say emotional? Talking about the employees when the game is the entertainment?   When a singer sings you don't give a rats behind about the other on stage singers or dancers do you?

I voted none. I play what I enjoy, if other people do the same while I don't always understand how they enjoy some of these games I don't wish them shut down.

The responces in this thread started out so well. I wonder if people post some of these moronic answers that folloed just because someone had to ?

The neighbors house buring down bit was almost funny

HOWEVER! You make a seriously solid point. I do like the StarWars IP AND I also follow your line of thinking therefore, SWTOR must go if we are to see a better StarWars game on the MMO market any time soon. Sad to say, especially since people would lose their jobs but maybe they could just get...you know, shuffled over. Not a fan of who ever made the gameplay concept decisions though, THAT dude can eat it.

Thing is, if SWTOR does shut down, what are the rights holders & potential devs going to conclude -- that people want SWG or something like it instead, or that making a big-budget Star Wars MMORPG is not a worthwhile investment?

(and it's Star Wars, Disney won't let some indie studio on a shoestring budget touch it)

I kind of feel a similar way about LOTRO -- I don't like what Turbine did with the IP, but if it does crash and burn, or simply doesn't get the license renewed, I consider it unlikely that a game that I would personally consider a better use of the Middle-Earth setting would get funded, licensed and made (and that's even assuming the current Tolkien-Warner lawsuit doesn't end up with a ruling that Zaentz don't hold the rights to license online games at all).

I disagree with this.  SWTOR was in development for years while SWG was running.  SOE had the chance to pay to renew their license and opted not to.  That's also discounting the fact that a few games based on the same IP have coexisted, not the least of which is EQ which is soon to have not two but three incarnations live at the same time.  If anything, I'd expect TOR's complete failure along with SWG's descent would scare any pennywise publisher from making another Star Wars game anytime soon.

 

On-topic, no, there's no game that I would like to see shutting down.

I swear to god if LOTRO would have touched on it's PVP it would have 2x or 3x it's population. They are either too stupid or bullheaded and it saddens me. Alot of people would sub to LOTRO if the PVP would be fixed and they would do like they do in other games, enjoy PVE as a side-game.

lol ... why all the hate of games. If you don't like the game, don't play it and play something else.

There are many games i don't care about ... but i don't care enough to "want to see them shutting down".
