I think what gets ever older than 'WoW" (and by the by wow took its combat from EQ) combat, is this stupid argument. Its a system that works i dont see many games the "Innovates themselves last. Rift said from the beginning that what they wanted was to make a quality game with some interesting takes on things and the game flourished. Tera focused sooooooo much on its combat that tho now F2P and doing better never succeeded in the way they hoped the innovation would take it. Alot of companies go with this model because it s proven method and games are not cheap to make, why risk millions of dollars on a possible good idea when you can secure your money back with a system that has been proven to work. In the end if you dont like it get a degree become a game director and change it yourself.

Back in the day I played Wolfenstein 3d - about 18 months later I played Quake which let you move in the Z axis as well as X and Y. And that's it.

The end of the evolution of FPS games.

Better graphics, fancy ways to handle inventory and access bigger guns? Yeah sure. But the GAMEPLAY

Exactly the same as it was 20 years ago - and there are about 5 a month of these suckas coming out. Quake Arena from 15 years ago was probably the pinnacle

Where's the thread about "Jeeez am I BOOOORED with 20 years of the same frikking FPS over and over-and-over-a-gain"

Guess people just like to play the same 3 or 4 games for decades with a different coat of graphics on top.

I'd like to see evolution in MMO gameplay. s but as someone who can't stand PvP - I'm stimied.

All the interesting games I see coming out or in development are PvP centric and worse - many of them are moving to "whack-a-mole" and "twitch" combat. Which for a guy close on his 50th birthday is an aspect of gaming that doesn't interest me one little bit any more.

Though that's probably because my reactions are no-where NEAR as good as they were 20-30 years ago and in PvP and twitch I simply can't compete  with many of you young guns lol :)

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

Only way to get away is to start console gaming, handheld gaming, board gaming and MMOGs.

If you play anything resembling an MMO chances are you will do quests, you will kill 10 of something, you will collect 10 of something and there will be 'elite' enemies.

 

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

What an oxymoron!

I just can't stand tab target, bland quests, Dungeon grinds, reputation grinds, shallow stories, WoW combat, WoW animations, stand to cast, focus on the endgame, gameworld so bland that players have to bring it to life with an actual Heavy RP, "crafting", ... I mean this has got to end at some point or the other. We've sacrificed Conan, Warhammer, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Elder Scrolls(soon), DnD(Neverwinter- it should've been NWN 3!), LoTR(almost forgot this one lol!)... WHERE DOES THIS STOP???

I agree that we are seeing movement towards both sandboxes and hybrids, but currently we are in the gutter with all the shits, excrements and stuff. Woe be upon this genre...

(I think I'll play TSW+singleplayers until these suits{whose ties are so tight around their necks that they can't think-not enough O2} wake up and realise that you CAN'T REPLICATE WoW's success! Hell, even Blizz can't replicate that "perfect storm", let alone others.)

Is this a good idea? Is anyone else tired of current "MMOs"?

I want MMORPGs back, damn it!!!

 

Not to worry there are quite a few games in development that are moving far away from the wow clone crap that we have seen over the last few years and a lot have been popular enough to get funded on Kickstarter.

The first of the ones we will see is The Repopulation.. hopefully we will see it this year :)

And people look at me all crazy when i say Wildstar looks like WOW.

They have very VERY similar design, just not settings.

Remember folks WoW was the 1st mmo ever created on 30 years of gaming.
Blizzard also invented the wheel and discoverd the earth wasnt flat.
They also invented internet and tv and also electricity !!!

TBH Blizzard created the universe !! The big bang actualy was a faulty server that exploded and accidently created planets and humans !!!

Seriously just cut this crap of wow clones.

"WoW clones" aren't generally labeled as such simply for adopting basic MMO elements and mechanics, but rather because of a tendency towards triviality and a lack of meaningful progression that WoW introduced to the genre by catering to the lowest common denominator.

The attributes of a WoW clone are things like heavy instancing, fast leveling, treadmill progression, redundant quest hubs, lack of risk and death penalties, instant queuing, fast travel, shallow storylines, and catering to an instant gratification mindset in general, all of which tend towards the destruction of the dangerous, competitive and immersive fantasy worlds that made DnD, MUDS and the original mmoRPGs so appealing.

Thats not to say WoW doesn't have its place, because millions of people would obviously disagree.  Its just that its place has become more of a fantasy SIMs online than that of a classic mmorpg (ie UO, m59, EQ, AC and even vanilla WoW in some respects).  Its missing so many elements that the advanced gamer wants, and replaced them with tasks and accomplishments achievable by a nutless monkey.  Its a game for the masses, not for the oldschool, self-respecting, or "hardcore" player.  

Thats not to say WoW hasn't made strides advancing combat and other mechanics versus older games, but so many of those important features listed above have been "streamlined", trivialized or lost altogether.

Thats why new games created in this spirit are dubbed WoW-clones.

Played EQ, UO, DAoC, AO, WoW, EQII, Vanguard, Ryzom, Darkfall, Warhammer, Rift, MO, Tera, DFUW, Age of Wushu, NW2, ESO and many others I don't remember or care to admit.

WoW copied other mmo's to they just did it better. WoW has always done it better that is why people comeback no matter what type mmo they wander off to. You don't like it tough then go whine to the other companies. But if your gonna keep complaining like little child WoW this WoW clone that then your wasting your time. You don't like WoW or anything like it alot people really do not care so go preach to the one's making mmo's similar to WoW mmk might get somewhere but dought but far better chance then griping here.

By doing so, you are actively defending Blizzard and therefore their reign as overlords of MMO genre. Just insult them, ignore their games and let the genre evolve. Instead of devolve-because that is what Blizzard is trying to do and all of you defending them obviously Support them in that action. Nowadays when I see Blizz logo on a box, I immediately avoid that game. Because I know that it'll be a copy of everything else(hell Blizz can't make a good original game!->original being the keyword!) and therefore as derivative and repetitive as it gets. Blizz is really good at packing the Skinner's box in the different gift wrapper. Like REALLY good.

Your dang right i defend WoW because it's not Blizz fault they had success. Thats like someone Making new gadget that makes billions of dollars and great success then every one blames him when everyone else decides to try and copy him. The blame is on the companies who want to copy not WoW or blizz. Blaming Blizz for other companies actions is pure ignorance.

Kid, the problem with games isn't that they're "WoW clones" - it's that there's a vocal and ignorant community, such as yourself, that profess their idiocy as if their opinions were fact.  Sadly, you're not alone, and many act as you do.

You spark up an age-old debate, and you do so very poorly.  It makes me question why you bothered to even post.  What were you hoping to get out of this?  Some sort of answer to an unsolvable question?  ...Or is more like some socially-awkward need for acceptance?

These types of posts serve no purpose.  I wouldn't deign to respond, except to point out your logically-flawed, socially awkward arguments.

By this logic, we should insult Apple for the evolution of the Smartphone / Tablets.

Which isn't exactly a sound logic.

You are all missing the point here:

Apple does(or copies who cares) things good. And they really work.
Blizz(and therefore everyone else that bothers only to make a derivative game) does/copies things in a mediocre fashion. They work at first, but their faults quickly show.

Good<---->Mediocre

That's the point. Defend the mediocrity much?

Your point is fail because blizz does not copy in mediocre that is why they still have millions of players and why it is success and #1 ranked mmo for almost a decade. The issue is not WoW or blizz dude it is other companies that copy them in mediocre way.  The issue is there are to many failed mmo's who wanted to cop WoW but cant. Issue is TO MANY and not enough new ideas. You don't like WoW fine but it is not mediocre.

So true!

Personally, I am "sick and tired" of this cliche.

And this sums up most of the cries about "WoW clones" succinctly:

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.
