Addons... the ebola of mmo's...

To you and shadowplague, speak for yourselves. God knows how many people prefer PC gaming due to the mod community. I love mods that enhance the UI or gameplay to my liking, but don't give unfair advantages in combat. Everybody has a different opinion of what is good and bad so mods allow a broader audience to enjoy a game. Thats a good thing. A plague would be forcing everyone to like the exact same thing.

I agree, add-ons make games fun, and interesting I don't want to be playing the same COD with the same interface that everyone else has. I like the freedom not only because it looks better but, for the simple fact that if you are playing a game like Aion or some other PvP focused game you will need a custom UI to properly layout your skills. Now Aion didn't allow these which made it suck but in many games you simply need a flexible user interface. 

There is no real point in blaming the gamer the fact is games in general have adopted the poor model of an endless grind fest. Aion, GW2, ESO, they all have a grind that is never ending and this causes a couple of issues.

  • New players will hate the game. Aion has the current issue where the experienced players are on top and the new guy kind of gets the bucket because there is the gear gap that is almost impossible to catch up to.
  • It takes too much time, this goes with the first point it will take too long for a new player to catch up and thus they will quit with a feeling of hopelessness. 
  • The game will get boring causing the older players to quit and leave because they will be bored. 
The issue right now is all these games are using the same tired old method so we have to settle with one that we find either some friends, or one that is the prettiest to us or be bored.

I have only played Guild Wars 2, and I was not impressed. When the game launched I was addicted to it like crack but it slowly lost its magic the lack of content and repetitive gameplay made the game a real drag.

WvW was not all that it was cracked up to be they are now mostly zerg fests where large groups are following each other capturing the same fort you just took 5 minutes ago. Not to mention due to how empty the servers are now, it doesn't feel like the World vs World that it is made out to be. 

PvP is pointless it feels like they tried to make themselves an E-Sport but instead made rather dull combat where it is an all out damage fest where the Elementalists and Thiefs wreck.

There has been no long-term content added outside of Fractals and no one even bothers to run them because the stat bonuses don't justify the months that it takes to farm them. 

Personally GW2 failed to innovate and is still the same grind fest that we get in most MMORPG's these days. 

Smash BROS is always going to be worth it. I remember when I got it for me WII years back I would stay up until 3:00 AM playing it. Creating my own maps that were impossible to get out of (solid box) was fun as everyone bounced around like a bunch of jelly beans. 

I do agree that Michio Kaku and Hawking are extremely focused on by the media. However, they have both made their contributions. 

Anyone who tries to argue that Hawking radiation was not a beautifully constructed theory is not looking at it correctly. Without it, the chances of CERN being allowed to use their atom smasher would have been much lower. 

Because they theorized that during the point of impact the particles would create a miniature black hole. Hawking radiations tells us that such as small black hole would not be able to sustain its self and thus disappear. But without that theory I am sure that telling the people "we are going to make miniature black holes and we are not sure what is going to happen but lets hope for the best" is not a good idea. 

I am sorry but hell to the no.. Destiny is not a mmo... It would have been better if we compared Global Agenda to FireFall.. 
Those WOW fans though o.o

The biggest issue with Guild Wars 2 like most mmo's there is no end game content nothing to strive for. I got 1 level 80 and said i don't want to make another class and play the same game again. So I got my guardian level 80. At the moment I hit 80 i had a full set of gear from AC with weapons and they had all the runes and sigils in. 

 

After that I was like what now? I do not see the point of the game, WvW and get what? Legendary weapon? Is the time worth is to me no. Every theme park MMORPG fails, and no developer has figured this out. Why spend 5+ years making a game to were I can blow through it all in a month. It does not make sense. Then they give the players tools to make content but that fails BECAUSE those tools are very limited and not rewarding. 

We all know that the shut down of SWG was not planned there is now way they would have worked on all of those updates just to release them towards the end of the game. It was George Lucas being dumb as usual and he ruined a great game twice. Sony revolutionized the game industry with SWG, and it was closed down for unfair reasons, and I would pay for this game to return. I hope Disney can fix all the mistakes Lucas made.

The two scenarios are different in this way.

Pre order: The game is already done and is being moved to be sold or they are setting up the servers.

Kick Starter:  Game is not developed and it could end up sucking.

 

Pick your choice and yes there is a right answer

This will not be the end of the Pc Gaming Platform at all. The only people suffering are those that are willing to donate to the companies. Yes you get all of those cool bonuses but I am going to ask you this IS IT WORTH IT. I mean come on you get a lifetime subscription, but how long will you actually play the game. Please keep in mind the game is not even fully developed yet. So you are paying for an unfinished game (or buying a game owned by EA)

 

http://thedailyexposition.blogspot.com/2013/04/developers-asking-for-money-on.html

So about 90% of you don't know what an investment is. When you invest in a business you are hoping for a payout to get more money. Well on Kickstarter  you are donating to that company and then you can continue to pay more unless they offer you the game at release, but look at the facts people. 

 

If a game needs kick starter to be successful then you should probably avoid putting your money into it. NOT ALL GAMES but most of them.

 

I don't believe in using kick starter for mmos but if they want to continue using it then go ahead I can't stop you.

The idea behind the Kick Starter game sounds nice but lets be realistic. Lets just say that a company did release a game but then the game turns out to be very poor. Well everyone who invested lost money on the investment and the purchasing of the game. Because those companies were only obligated to create the game.

 

The problem is those games can change and suck afterwards, and they legally did what they said. So no Kick Starter games are not better, and I think that if a developer needs support from their community to develop a game they either should stop trying to make it and work for a well established company. 

I have established half of you don't know what you are talking about. Paying for a game does not get rid of trolls and immaturity. World of warcraft BIG example. That whole game is made up of trolls (not literally but there are a lot of trolls) RUNESCAPE. Another huge mmorpg filled with trolls. You can't argue that subscriptions are going to get rid of trolls because it does not work that way. It is a game whether they pay for it or not if someone wants to troll they will troll. 

No it has done horribly and has given more people a reason to hate the game it. This is the most restrictive system I have ever seen. 

Lets see what they restrict

1. exp

?2. Money

3. Flashpoints

4. mission rewards

5. Gear level

6. pvp

7. skill bars

8. Everything is more expensive

9. crafting skills

much much more.

The point of this is they are nickel and diming us on everything. They are the most cheap skate gaming company i have ever seen. At launch 150$ for a collectors edition and now this. No wonder they are so hated.

 

Not to come off rude, but you messed up with this. 

Why TESO wasn’t designed as a true sandbox MMORPG

 

That title will never work. A TRUE SANDBOX mmo everything is created by the players. They run the market they gather the supplies there are no Npc's the players have to get everything. The reason this game could never exist is because all the players would be farmers and miners. Not to mention that It can't have a learning guide of any sort because that interferes with how the players learn and control the game.

 

Now personally as far as sandbox like mmorpgs that are being released Arche Age will probably be the most successful. Which is why I am waiting for it.

The sad truth is there are no games out there that will keep you entertained. There are a lot of good games out there but when you break them down you notice a pattern. THEY ARE ALL CLONES OF ONE ANOTHER. Look at it Guildwars 2 was a good game while it lasted however it lacked end game content. This is the issue every game has they can't create enough content, and the players don't want to create it. That is why sand box mmorpg's fail all the content is player created. 

 

So let me answer your question the best way I can you seem to dislike sandbox mmo's (EVE) which means you are a theme park guy. Try Guild wars 2 and if that fails the WOW train leaves at 6. 

Instead of a game testing people to say you are smart enough to play why dont they just make a game for smarter people. Saves time and those who can'/won't figure it out will leave saves time and it is not discriminating towards anyone else.

This post will be from the perspective of a guy, so I am going to try and explain what we think and if I say anything rude I am not meaning to.

Guys want to feel tough or want to feel superior to the next person it just seems to be our nature we are very competitive. Some will deny it, but we always pick someone that we want to aspire to be and maybe surpass. Now we want to look manly or tough in front of other men if we don't it makes us look weak. Which is why guys rarely cry we think it makes us look weak and are generally laughed at unless we are under extreme physical and sometimes emotional pain.

Brief intro to the explanation ^

So why are guys sexist in games? Well a lot of guys when hanging out with friends will do things like insult girls and many times will hit on girls. Throughout history men have always looked down on women and those who do look tougher and are generally physically stronger than others. So why dont some guys stand up to this? The answer is simple it makes us look weak even in a game we don't want to be the enemy we want to be with the crowd. Also since it is the internet it does not matter if someone curses and threatens you we just curse the guy out that is just what people do.

More Detail Summary Below v

To sum it up guys want to look tough and it is the internet we think you want to curse me out I will do the same to you. The best thing to do is realize on games sexism is a big thing but don't take it to seriously want to annoy his report his account and hope he gets banned.

Long, long ago they stopped giving IQ tests for a very good reason. Look into it.

Are you sure about that.

I took several IQ tests under 18 because I was in AT classes. They were for accelerated learning. I was reading college level under 15 years old so of course they were always tracking your progress and expecting you to keep a lead. I don't know if they have AT anymore but they did when I was in school.

Then I skipped all of high school and passed on a GED in lockup (for skipping school). See, being smart was ruining my teenage reputation. Yeah, yeah, hindsight, I'm grown now and know my kiddie faults. In lockup they gave me several tests, one for IQ and two for personality. You know, to see if I was a nasty type that would stay nasty. I remember one test kept talking about horses. How do you feel about horses. Would you ride a horse. Do horses frighten you. I kept thinking, where was this test made frickin' Oklahoma, there are no horses near me. Of course they could have been a thin veil of horses = people, but so it was, the horse test was completed.

Once I started college, again they offered an IQ test along with several times doing the MBTI tests. In one class we even had to do them as part of the curriculum. That was as late as '05.

Those things have been a part of my life throughout all my years. I've worked at 2 temp companies and both of them asked me to take many tests to prove that I could do what I said on my resume. Those test results then went along with my resume to companies that I was offered to be placed with.

Tests are common everywhere I've been from lockup to the outside world. I can't imagine a world without them. Is this uncommon to other people?

 

Wait what I was reading about 5 years ahead of my age in grade school and I was never in any accelerated courses or was given a IQ test. Most of the people in the "CATS" which was what we used in grade school wondered why I was not in it. This is what I get for an Arizona education... Which is now why in high school I have basically resorted to taking all AP math classes and science classes and next year is my junior. I go after school and have the physics teacher and AP Chem teacher teach me something and I take online classes. 

 

The reason that they have become less popular is because there were some studies that showed motivation played a large amount of the test scores so if there was an incentive to do well then they would score higher. They also stopped doing it because it could discourage some students because you will get people who think that they are all high and mighty because of their IQ. If someone tries to do that I say that I reply " Good for you now what have you done with it" That pretty much shuts them up. The point is people are only looking for something to brag about which is why atleast Arizona and Jan Brewers all mighty wisdom >.> Don't give them out anymore.
