Ultima Online, Asherons Call, Lineage...sandbox games with unintrusive stories which not only shows that story MMOs are not fads since they have been around since the very start but also that story does not = themepark...only if it drives the game.

Without a story, for me, there is no game.

i like there to be a main story line.   they are supposed to be RPG's afterall.   some companies just present the story better than others.   i liked how World of Warcraft usually had a main story line in each zone and an overall story line that spanned the game.   i don't like how some games seemingly force you into the story.  (swtor).  a story should exists but it should be something i can follow at my leisure not something that i must follow to progress.

I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

 Well, you dropped the RPG from MMORPG so either you don't think of MMORPGs as RPGs or you were referring just to MMOs that are not RPGS.  I am playing MMORPGS and like story/lore.

Honestly a mix of the other two options , old school grind and sandbox.

No need to separate them.

Regardless , I don't play mmo's to be put in a separate cutscene to show what a special flower I am in my own private instance , its the worst trend to me in mmo's , the "storybook/cutscene/private instance mode"

 

UO / EQ / DAOC and so on didn't need any such thing , and there are still no games that come close to how much I enjoyed them.

Without story nothing makes sense. I feel confused when things don't make sense.

I really enjoyed the story part of TOR. I don't mind quest/grind mmos but I avoid sandbox mmos. Not because I hate them but I don't want to spend my whole life inside an mmo and sandbox is way too much like real life...only it's not.

So no I'm not sick of good story based mmos. I am sick of lame ones that seem to be written by some producers 5 year old.

There's a saying about evolution and why we have two eyes and two ears but only one mouth. Clearly it didn't see the internet coming or it never would have given us ten fingers to type with.

World > Quest Progression

I think it's great to have stories within the world, just let me find them without being led by the nose. A little exploration would go a long way. Oh, maybe I should head to that coast town since I've never bee there before.

When I feel like cattle it's boring.

Without story / context...you just have a world full of genocidal maniacs running around killing things...

I'll pass on the story driven MMO.. If I wanted to experience a story, I would read a book and save a ton of money..

I play games because of the story. And how can a 7 year ongoing success be a 'fad'?

"This story thing is just a fad."

They said it at Beowulf's first telling.

They said it outside Shakespeare's theater.

They said it about radio dramas.   And they were right!

They said it about early TV shows, and feature-length movies.

Now they're saying it about story-driven MMOs.

It's been thousands of years and they haven't been right yet.  (Well, okay, the radio drama thing, but still..)

As long as their are entertainment mediums, stories will be told through them.  MMOs happen to be one such medium.

game is also real

I prefer story and nicely designed too.
I like to be a part of scenario rather than just log in, grind who knows what and log out.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2
