More blood on the floor of those continuing to make the game production decisions that have put the genre where it is.

(blood = lost company investment and revenue.....and the jobs of those responsible for the garbage we have today)

That's a bit of a far flung assertion.

 

The problem with PCs would probably be better characterized by how much variety exists in the platform. You have people playing on hardware that's sometimes over five years old, and that creates a great disparity in the kind of performance you can expect out of each game played.

 

When you cater to the present generation of hardware on the PC, you cut out a vast majority of the player base and potential market.

 

As a result, making a game that performs capably for machines up to a couple years old tends to be the better goal. That means sacrificing some elements that would be interesting, but too taxing to implement.

 

This is perhaps why I agreed with a notion made a while back that the production of future titles needs to happen on a smaller scale. Devs catering to a more targeted player base with a more defined aim, so they can deliver a more complete experience.

 

By doing that, they are offered the ability to experiment with novel design a bit more, and implement concepts that the user base as a whole might not be keen or capable of capitalizing on.

This doesn't have to be the death-knell of greater community either. Due to the capacity to create meta-game and inter-game elements, you could very well have separate games with very different play styles capable of feeding into one another by being able to send in-game content between one another.

CCP tried doing this with EVE and Dust, be it in a somewhat flailing fashion. The principle exists though for people to experiment with and refine into a practical concept.

As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero. - Vaarsuvius

MMO's would become alive again to me if people were forced to work together to achieve anything in game.....ie high rate of failure.  I know the term "forced" will turn many people off, but it is the only thing that will keep me engaged in a game for over a month.

I do agree the genre isn't dead for sure, but it's missing it's shine. 

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

MMO market is bigger than ever, it is just evolving into a direction not fitting your personal liking. That is your personal issue though, not the genre.

"A wise man has something to say, but a fool just has to say something."

The problem I have with the OP and people that support the "this or that" mentality is not his vision (or passion) for mmorpgs per se, but the folly of writing off an entire genre based on the gamestyle choices within it.  For these people there is no point of compromising. They see things as either "this or that", dead or alive, good or bad. There is no leeway because they pretty much believe compromise eventually leads to total destruction (in the case of people siding with the OP).

 

Most of them probably dislike cash shops, F2P mmorpgs, instance zones and features of convenience (i.e. LFG tools, AHs and such). And prefer mmorpgs that don't include any of those things listed, while I choose to reserve judgment by playing first.

 

Many of them view WoW as nothing more than a highly advertised fluke to spoon feed the ignorant masses on Blizzard's version of EQ lite. And anything produced after WoW is usually dismissed as nothing more than a reskinned, shallow clone. They prefer sandbox to themepark, grouping to solo and grinding to questing. And without even much thought they often throw about insults at people who enjoy the latter(or in my case both) of those choices.

 

With some of these up and coming mmorpgs they see the possibility of finally "showing" the ignorant masses what they have been missing by choosing to promote the development of themepark mmos rather than sandbox.

 

But I do not share that somewhat rigid state of mind. For me the genre is expanding, not switching or changing. And I see everything they see happening in the genre but without all the bravado that comes along with it.  For me there is ALWAYS room for diversity in the genre. And I welcome and often enjoy several games that call this genre home. The "this or that" mentality has no room for diversity or compromise. They see things in black and white, good or bad, chocolate or vanilla. They are looking for one game to come along and justify the genre for them. This is why it's so easy for them to dismiss an entire genre. And while my passions about the genre come from mostly the diversity within it, their passion comes from mostly the choices within it.

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.

That's asking quite a lot though, isn't it? To ask a development studio to tailor a game to your specific wants and needs?

I agree that some of the time sinks I did not enjoy. But we differ greatly on what a "time sink" is. Anything one does in a game is a "time sink." It takes time away from the player that they could be doing something else. It keeps them playing. Our "tolerances" differ, neither one being "superior."

It is possible that you do not enjoy MMOs as much as before however the genre is very far from been dead. It would be easy to blame the games on the market but the truth is that there is plenty of high quality MMOs and if you can't find any that you enjoy well I'm sorry to say that but the problem is you.

Settle down there buddy.

 

It's fine to want things or prefer things, but expecting that perfect game that fits your specific wants and needs will inevitably lead to disappointment. The developers actually have to make decisions about what kind of systems and content go into the game. For instance, you can not both have a LFD system and not have one simultaneously. As the list of features and types of content grows longer, it gets harder and harder to hit that sweet spot for anyone in specific.

 

And so, do you not think that it is a lot to ask of a development studio to tailor a game to your specific wants and needs?

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

Really? Does not every gamer seek to find games that they enjoy?
