I'm not sure why this is hard for you to imagine.

 

 

 

 

 

That sounds like a nightmare of buggy npc's and glitches.  And what if a new player wants to group with you but is not on the same  quest step?

 

 Heavy instancing and phasing ruins alot, imho.    At some point,..it's like,..ok ,..lets go play a normal party-rpg.

The Mass effect stuff is awesome,..but in Star Wars:ToR  it is a paltry shadow of what it was because they simply cannot alter the persistent game world in such a way to cater to the thousands of choices from thousands of players without stepping on each other's toes.   and then again,..you may as well play single player if you want such personal world altering story changes.  At least at this point in the tech, imho.

 

 

 

 

Well, several things,

it will be as buggy as any game is buggy. Single or multiplayer. Bugs aren't the sole domain of multiplayer games

there are plenty of instances in games and the only issue is whether or not people like them. some do and some don't. As far as changing the game world you are absolutely correct, you can't change the larger game world for everyone's own unique story. That's why the instanced stories and why I mentioned Guild Wars. Of course some people have issues separating themselves from everyone else when doing any quest so that is going to be different per player.

I have no problems with instanced stories being separate from open world events/player interaction. I feel they are two different things. And how many times do you see a single player rpg being announced and people asking if there is multi-player? Already has happened with Pillars of Eternity. Clearly people enjoy such role play games, rich in story but with several players.

As far as what to do if someone wants to join you but they are not on the correct quest objective? My personal opinion is let them".

If they want to join out of sequence that's fine. I would have no problem with it. The game could either just give them full credit or give them some sort of "other credit" akin to being a helper.

 

They can then follow along in "their own story".

This is a problem of perception and taste, not a problem of it not being able to be done.

ESO is the way it is because of specific design decisions, not because it "had" to be that way because there was no other conceivable way to do it.

 

Keep telling yourself that. That's why we've never gotten an mmorpg with a well written story anywhere near the best single player rpg's story. Certain things are lost when you change format, its unavoidable.

 

Single player RPGs focus is usually on story/lore/graphics, MMOs focus is usually on combat/crafting/group battles.

 

When the focuses of two mediums are in different areas, its only natural when you try to combine the two both areas suffer.

 

They could have made ESO like the original Guild Wars where all cities are open for everyone and where the world is instanced to the party. Then they could have had their story play out over whatever series of quests they created for the party.

 

They could have had the world open as well but each quest area out in the world instanced where players take quests but travel to the instances/areas where those quests play out.

I'm not sure why this is hard for you to imagine.

 I think levels on the whole need to go. As long as there is a number and gamers only get their nut off if they make it bigger, it's going to go this way. Remove the levels, focus on the social aspect (like SWG attempted to) and don't be scared to design games like that just because SWG failed. 

As long as you have any numbers that "get better" over time you have levels.

If there is better gear than what you have you have levels.

Any type of progression is "levels".

Levels aren't the issue. Having greater disparity between players is more of "that" issue.

 

Any puzzles would have to be something that changed from time to time and were challenging but not static.

Kind of like a shifting sudoku puzzle. Where one would know how to solve it but now the solution.

Otherwise one person will solve it and post it on a website.

But today no one has down time. No one is looking for social opportunities when waiting for the bus or standing in an elevator. We are all looking at our smart phones.

I live in the Boston area and every day I note that I'm one of the few people "NOT" looking at a smart phone or tablet.

I personally like downtime.

Dark Elf Dread Knight!

Or whatever it was called.

I decided to re sub to play with my friends.

This game is 1 and a half years old and all the servers are still not open to make a new character.

This is so lame, I cant play with my friends and the game is so empty now, couldn't even find a group to do a lv 32 dungeon and the main cities are so empty.

I guess WoW is still the only good themepark out there.  

I just made a new character last night.

So let's see, it was a Sunday night and I created the character around 11:30 pm eastern time.

So what who cares, I generally like realistic objects and character models but that's me. Take STO where the skies the limit in your character design. I often see my fellow gamers with tiny bodies and huge heads at max level, why cause they like it. It's an mmo and it's a plethora of different unique ideas of what floats their boat.  Actually it's what I find most entertaining in mmos.

Well, since this discussion crops up quite a bit I imagine quite a few people care.

 

I fully know there are people who love their raybans, jogging suits and whimsical weapons just as much as I fully know there are people who are looking for a different aesthetic.

I personally am not "into" the "whatever floats their boat" mentality as that is what allows people to make "Starbucks" in video games. Some people will find this novel and love it and some people won't. Different strokes I guess.

I am pointing out that spending money on a products that have fetures and design that you are against is counter-productive.

Just think about what many bitter vets complained about and then think about all AAA mmorpg's in last 7-8 years or more (depedning on what bitter vet generation we talk about)  many of those bitter vets spend money and/or time on and then complained about those mmorpg's.

ALL those AAA MMORPGs had multiple things bitter vets complained about for years.  

Did they?

Are you actually saying that the people who didn't like/decried the types of games that have come out in the last few years were the sole people funding these games or were these games funded by people who didn't care/liked them?

My thought is that the "bitter vets" are probably a much smaller demographic than you think in comparison to the millions of people who spend money on these games.

I am perplexed that what I said is not clear.

Of course I don't say that all people playing new MMORPGs are bitter vets. Bitter vets are miniority.

I am just saying that many bitter vets were/are playing new MMORPGs and then complain about how they suck, and then go and play another AAA MMORPG that releaes , then complaing about it, leave, and try another one and so on. All this while it's perfectly clear that those MMORPGs are not designed to have what bitter vets want in first place.

Ok, that makes more sense. Though truth be told, I wonder how many of those bitter vets really did try those games. I'm sure some but not any significant amount.

Maybe just the people who love to complain about things.

Even still i NEED a video to at least get a grasp for the game.No video here and i am not about to buy into anything a paid writer is going to say about a game.Give me a video then explain it,i might at least listen.


So i  assume this is nothing more than another Diablo clone?The fun is not in the game but more so in making builds?The combat i also assume being like Diablo/POE is trying to 1-2 shot everything ,so a no brainer no thinking after your build is made.


 

Go to Youtube and you will see some videos there. It's more like a slicker Baldur's Gate.

Also it's not even remotely a Diablo or Path of Exile Clone.

This is another reason why the old games blaze more in people's memories.  New servers did generally happen occasionally.  There is definitely something to joining a server or game in its infancy.  Games generally only have new servers at the start and then collapse things today and the open betas and paid betas/fake alphas are removing the ability to really have an even start at the beginning of a game. 

 

If anything, I have tons more fun these days in the beta phase of a game than when it is released.  Pre-release is the only time you get that old days feel to a game where the community is better and everything isn't pre-known. 

 

Yeah, but though the greater amount of fun comes at release or "early access" the whole "release" a new server was always horrible.

In the long run there's never enough people to sustain the population and then in several months there are always "new" people asking for more servers. That's not sustainable.

My thought is that any game needs to somewhat lessen the difference between "top level" and "noob" as well as give bonuses/rewards for inviting newer players along. Also, make it so that low level people can still have a great time and not feel that the "fun is something that comes in the future".

Additionally, not have "noob" areas but have areas that are noob friendly. This way high level and low level players can mingle, ask questions, join guilds, get help, etc.

 

Makes me glad I'm a backer.

So, is this a Divinity: Original Sin Clone or?

Looks like it, with a $45 price.

Tell me I am wrong?

you are wrong.

This has more influence from the early Baldur's Gate games.

This seems to have more "role play" in the game with your choices, with the "descriptions" that happen along the way. As I mentioned above, when I and my party were trying to escape from an attack I suddenly got a screen that asked me if I wanted to try to save my companion by throwing my sword at his attacker or keep going. I suspect when your character has stronger stats in various areas you get more options to do certain things.

Also, Divinity Original Sin has a turn based combat system where you only have "x" amount of points to do things. This is more real time.

I agree!

I finally got to try it last night after downloading. It's wonderful. All the little story aspects, and "choice"!

I haven't gotten that far in the game and don't know to what depth choice ultimately has but at one point I'm given a choice: stay with a wounded man or take off.

And I had to think about that.

Another choice "hurl my weapon and "possibly save that same man (earlier in the story) or continue to flee.

I did hurl my weapon it did end up saving the man but I then had no weapon for the place where we would flee. I kept wondering why I was doing "1" damage. That's what happens when you punch!

I also like that there is a running "story" sheet that keeps track of some of your decisions/dialogue choices.

I also have to agree with Bad Spock in that the level of detail and attention to detail is amazing. More so than a great many western games. 

expressions, reaction in cut scenes, how various parts of your character and the gear move and shift. It's truly beautiful and very well done.

Also, where is the OP in this discussion? It's like he dropped the bomb and took off. 

It does look good.

I'm trying again because apparently it's the second most popular sub based MMO out there. I just don't get it though, there is no Final Fantasy like story, no voice acting and the world design is super small and enclosed. All I've done so far is kill 10 rats and fetch quests, they're so boring and like going back to 2004 when quests were new and did nothing more than that.

I got bored of this shit over 10 years ago now, why hasn't this game evolved in any way? Any ways, I haven't even reached level 10 I am that bored, it doesn't even feel like a Final Fantasy game, where is the main story people go on about? It has been non existent so far. 

So, I do "this thing" whenever I run across something that I have no idea why it's popular. This will seem preachy and I don't mean it to be so I apologize in advance.

The first thing I do is completely divorce my expectations/what I like/what I think things should be like. I do this because not everyone approaches things like I do and has the same taste.

I then look at what "the thing" is trying to do and based on that see what if it achieves its goal.

So, if we take out all of your expectations or preconceptions what have we left?

there is no Final Fantasy like story,

From what I can see, Square Enix has its own definition for this stuff. My guess is that the game has nothing to do with the finial fantasy story and more about the world and it's own story. I imagine this is like what some writers do when they use the same world/themes and add different characters,. Question, did the first final fantasy mmo have a "final fantasy story?" (don't know this is why I'm asking

no voice acting

There is actually voice acting it's just not used in every quest. IT seems like it's used sparingly. The cut scenes are very good. I'm assuming that they think people can read and can supply their own "voices" to each quest. This is probably a non-factor for people.

and the world design is super small and enclosed.

It's also very beautiful so I imagine that the aesthetics trump size. I also imagine that part of this is for technical reasons. I'm sure people would like larger areas but they are probably more turned on by the detail.

All I've done so far is kill 10 rats and fetch quests, they're so boring and like going back to 2004 when quests were new and did nothing more than that.

From what I understand there is a large role play community in this game so I imagine they are making their own stories. Additionally, since I am subbing to this game, I find it more fun not to do the quests though I am doing the main story quests. It seems to me that there is enough one can do on their own that the "quality" of the quests doesn't matter.

Though maybe people really like the quests and don't mind reading.

So what we have is a beautiful world, great aesthetics (to those who like the art design) detailed characters, great cut scenes, a quirky world/lore, a lot of crafting, and a canvas for people to sort of make their own fun (no, I'm not saying this is a sandbox).

It's probably on those things that the game is so popular.
