They already devoted coverage to MMOs that aren't RPGs, so it makes sense they would cover RPGs that aren't MMOs.

I agree with the folks about the more coverage is the better.

 

Also Stick of Truth is fun. Just as that SP pic above, I don't play wow so I loved that episode poking wow - though I have to admit (maybe the Truth effect of the Stick), now that 4-5 years passed, that pic is almost like looking into the mirror :) even that wrist... holding... thingy is accurate :)

I got so much trouble on my mind Refuse to lose.

Last time I posted a topic claiming that mmorpg's are slowly fading away, and that you need no more proof than this site new found focus on singleplayer RPGs. I was banned ( for hundredth time ) and the topic was deleted.

Well at least I am glad you guys came out clean and explained the thing.

 

Yes mmorpgs have reputation. Yes they are risky investments that usually blow in investors faces. Yes its genre that had most potential but became most stagnant in the industry. Yes there is almost no new serious mmos being produced - you can not build whole site on 2 games in production. And yes , mmo community is shit...

So yes, its just logical you guys cover some other games...

 

But can you really do it ?

Single player RPGs have calm and benign fan base that doesnt like to argue. This site has reputation of wasp nest, and immaturity of first grade.

Although mmo have RPG in the name, they share very little in-common. (Unless we are talking kingdom of Amalur)

So thats a poor connection.

And yes, RPG fans are far less likely to obsesively browse web reading every article on their soper hyped game in making. Generating far less revenue... Not to mention that web marketing for RPGs is far less active than one for F2P trash titles.

 

I say. You guys better branch out to cover massive multiplayer games.

Like DOTAs , Dayz's , Starbound's , Minecrafts , shooters ...

This is where the wind is blowing, and fits better this sites immature agressive crowd.

It's all good. I'm a lazy person. Having to go to multiple sites for different games was wearing out my "clicking finger"

 

If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!

Look, an article from years ago that never got published on the site!

 

Can you finally at least somehow differentiate mmorpgs from other games on your news feed? Color code or something. It's frustrating on this site when you are looking for new mmorpgs, see a new game pop up and it's just some LoL clone or something else that has nothing to do with MMO's.

Perhaps you feel you're being treated unfairly...

3/04/14 4:45:34 AM#28

IDK has this site experienced some kind of drop in uniques?

Well if that is the case just have a sister website for RPGs or change the name of your current web site to RPG Online. Just remember that just because some marketing guru in an ivory tower decided to change the MMORPG acronym to a new splashy new name doesn't change really anything. I can guarantee that those brainiacs never played video games.

Cooperative play sounds more social anyway.

Goodluck

it is a shame, i loved this site as being all about mmo games and a place to come for nothing but mmo info - and i see plenty of new games coming out that look like mmo and call themselves mmo, the change was clearly going to happen watching how the site has slowly morphed in recent times

 

i know you have to do what is best for your business and if covering more genres is better for you then i can understand that - as a mmo gamer i cant say i am not disappointed though

You aren't just having a sister site devoted only to single player RPGs why again?

I was wondering when this change would happen. I for one am happy for this added direction you are taking. RPGs are my favorite genre to play and I almost play them exclusively. I feel that over that last few years people have lost sight of the RPG in the MMORPG space, I hope this added direction will bring back the knowledge and love of RPGs to the MMORPG space.

Looking forward to reading the reviews, previews and watching the videos.

So this is just like any other game site now? Ok.. Not sure what the point is then.

I am not for adding non-MMOs to MMORPG.com, that's kind of silly, as is the attempted justification for why the site is heading this way.

It has nothing to do with the genre out growing itself or the lines becoming blurry. We all know what games are MMORPGs and what games are just RPGs, this is not a difficult thing to tell. Skyrim is an RPG and not an MMORPG, that wasn't hard now was it?

The real reason is because it allows this site to grow, get more members, more staff, and make more money. That is it, plain and simple.

I don't care much that you guys want to make more money and appeal to a bigger audience, that's fine. I do mind that you feel the need to justify this with lies that we are now having a hard time telling what is an MMORPG and what isn't.

I see from comments above that mmorpg will lose a lot of members unhappy with new changes. Well... by by then.

Personally I am very, very happy. I'm here mostly for information, raw knowledge about gaming. A passive member, if you prefer.  And for me, from my point of view, adding more information in this topic is highly beneficial.

And you know what? I'm convince that I'm not alone in this opinion, that soon we will have a lot of new members with new views / ideas. Sure, some of them will be more interested in discussion about semantics and metaphysics (like why site called mmorpg take interest in non-mmo's and what to do with it) but a lot of people will also post interesting reviews, ask intelligent questions and give informative answers.

Thanks to all mmorpg stuff for your work, I hope that you will be even more busy now.

A lot more work than you'd imagine, when we have a brand new site for MMORPG coming (soon, I swear) and plenty of cross-over readership.

I doubt many big budget MMORPG's are starting development with a PC focus these days after all the failures lately. This site would not have many games to write about in a few years if they didn't broaden their focus like this.

 

Personally I'm glad the genre is doing poorly and developers are shifting focus towards MOBA's and console. The way I see it, PC MMORPG's need to die off  first so we can start over and get something new and refreshing going in the genre again.

I think with my heart and move with my head.-Kongos

Meh.  I'd much rather go to one site and see more information on the stuff I'm interested in than several sites that each have just a little of the information I am interested in.  At the same time, I can see how the people who started with the site or started in the genre can feel a bit put out.  No, I don't think those people are special snowflakes.  In fact, I will happily mock those people who think they are special snowflakes for the simple act of buying games that they like. 

 

I've never been part of a small-ish community that had a sudden, large influx of new people and had the community I was part of survive.  A community resulted from the old and new people, but it wasn't the community I was part of and familiar with.  There was just no way to maintain the former cohesion.  So I can see where a lot of people are coming from when they get upset about stuff like this.

 

Hopefully this will allow more focus on indie titles and indie developers.  Sure, we need information on those AAA titles, but that information will be pretty easy to come by.  Even if there were very few articles on ESO here, there would be a flood of information in the forums as soon as it was possible.  So hopefully there will be more articles on indie developers and games.

 

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

I personally have no objection to you covering RPGs and other onlime game types.I just don't like when you an others broaden the definition of MMO to include things you want to cover/play.
