The game has it's qualities ...but overall...

It's just BAD

 

Good +

Combat

 

BAD -

All the other things :(

Hopefully  It's better than Skyrim..Wich I find not that good at all :)

Ok..Here goes !!

 

I really hate all this talk about forced grouping, I highly DOUBT that the majority of EverQuests players had to wait for long for a Group because the players had friends and guilds that stood ready most of the time  and if you didn't ..well then you didn't play EverQuest...Simple ..right :)

Sure the players who belonged in this category and yet still wanted to play EQ had to solve it by either PUG or trying to become friends with other players or try to lure RL friends to play the game..Whats really wrong with that ? Still this Group was the minority of players that actually played EQ.

I agree that an MMO can be so much more than just a Group of players combating monsters and that there should be LOTS of activities that doesn't require 4-5 extra players to do so, but an MMO should IMO ALWAYS be a social experience first .

If the talk about forced grouping is going to continue , I will start to say that ...todays games has forced soloing, yes you heard me :) I know I know ..I can Always Group up  !! but If you look at the games today they are 80% solo and 20 % Group activities ; If you Group up to all these quests that are balanced towards 1 player you will get a seriously trvialised game and gameplay. The game will become so boring that all you have to do is run , click , run..

1 solotion is to make it like you say based on number of players the zones alter in difficulty, but I Think since it hasn't been done Before it's very difficult to get right or impossible with todays standards regarding MMO's atleast. or very cost ineffective ? 

From my perspective ..the Trinity, or It doesn't have to be the well known 3 It can be more,  it's still the best way of doing things in a Group in MMO's, It's very basic and may seem simple and all that, but It can also be very tough and strategic based on a number of things, mainly how the developers form their game.

What Publishers and developers has to be aware of is that ..there will be no more MEGA successes like WoW or maybe there will one day but please stop dreaming and start to make games for the diffrent player Groups that are out there now.

TIME is the issue !! Yeah it really is. we all want to play but can't because of TIME, so we play games that let's us have fun for 30 min-to an hour, thats also fine..but develop these games for this categorie of players and leave the players with much time to some other game..do NOT  make a Product that tries to pleas everyone , because it doesnt WORK, plain and simple because there will Always be one Group or Another that get's the short end of the stick in this + it COSTs HUGE amount of Money to develop a jack of all gamers kind of game and only the biggest companies can even try such an endeavour , Like EA or Blizzard and now Zenimax with ESO

My thoughts regarding this is that you are chasing a Dream ...The feeling you felt 2004-2005 towards WoW will NEVER and can never be recaptured  in another game.

It's because at that time , 10 years ago , It was a game to be impressed about, just picture WoW the version released 2004 released today 2015, would it be successful ? Highly doubtful :) Right !!?

the problem is that they are selling This in a rather serious manner. I can stand unserious games like South Park etc ,but this is NO joke Just looking at the stupid halfnaked elf makes me want to scream..

This must be the most redicoulous "gun" i have EVER seen...How the HELL can she roll around with a small car tired to her back..?

Whats wrong with the players that would actually like this ?

Was M&M in a good place when they abandoned development?  Or was it an unbalanced, buggy cluster?

 

They even released an expansion and It isn't "a buggy mess" ...and I guess It's "unbalanced" for some players who really just looks at damage output..It's a fine game and playable with any class as far as I can tell..If you like an easier game thou, play with 2 mages but it's not needed :=)

 

Might and Magic X if you love the old RPG's with turnbased combat and oldschool gameplay ..It's a great game

Grimrock - It's realtime /tilebased with more puzzles but also great..Can get tricky and frustrating ..But It's also great

I pre-ordered the game and had some fun in the beta, at release I remember having problems with the game.

I returned when it went free-to-play and it was fun, even though a lot of options was locked behind the pay-wall.

And then I noticed I could only do a couple pvp instances a week because of the pay-wall and that totally destroyed it for me.

It's the worst kind of f2p that I know of. I literally have to pay more than I did when I pre-ordered to play a game I have already bought.

 

Though that is just my opinion.

If I felt like paying for it I think it might be a great game, but I don't, so it's not.

How can the game be good , yet you do NOT wan't to pay a measly 15 $ a month.??

A player like you is HARDLY wanted anyway, so do not worrie about it :)

I wish I could get the same video card on the Dell.

 

Thing is Dell comes and replaces mother boards and video cards which they have for me up to 3 times with no issues. I don't trust these computer shops to do the same. That is the main reason I buy Dell the after sale service no questions asked replacements.

Ok..I understand..

What I was trying to say there MUST be other alternatives to both of your examples..Why do you only look at DELL and Alienware ?

Originally posted by cheyane

Okay my Alienware Aurora is having all sorts of usb conflicts and it started with command center issue about a month back and now it is having all sorts of usb conflicts and causing BSD and I think I am going to have to replace the computer.

 

I always get my computer from Dell because my husband likes their replacement and guarantee policy and he said I could buy one from there. I have no confidence to build my own which I might have if I was still living in Singapore but here in Italy language issues and everything no way. Don't know anyone either so that is out so please don't suggest building my own. I know better and cheaper but no.

 

If I can get them to give me a windows 7 I should get that right ? Not the Windows 8.1 right ? I will be using it to play Wildstar and ESO mainly for now.

 

If I get the Dell I can get a GTX 750 Ti but if I get the Alienware X51 I can get the GTX 960,both have 2gb . The Alienware is not like my water cooled present tower version so it is cheaper and oddly enough with the 170 Euro discount currently (if I order soon) it is almost the same price as the XPS 8700 desktop. Euro 1219 versus 1299 without the IVA and other tax and transport. Both have the i7 4790 4.00 Ghz the Dell having a 24 gb RAM which is kinda overkill while the Alienware is 8 gb but 24 seems a tad too much don't you think so ? Dell 2Tb hard drive and the alienware 1 Tb. Problem is the dell comes with the monitor and if I get the better card I want to get the monitor. 

 

The suggested monitor is 780 euro only one choice for the Alienware whereas the Dell monitor is included in  price. So almost same price is not quite right but what do you suggest which card and system should I get ?

 

 

 

From what I can tell the Alienware series is a very very expensive brand, it may be good , but Is it really Worth it ? , In Sweden most "computer related" internet sites also builds there own brands and you would get almost double the computer specs for that price of the "alienware"...almost :)

 

Ohh..There is NOTHING wrong with Windows 8.1 ...The Metro UI is more/less gone , other than that it's just a matter of time Before you learn the small diffrence in handling it compared to Win 7..

I would gladly pay for a game that Is like EQ2 (vanilla), but I really doubt I would actually stay for long in the "original" EQ2, even If I liked the game back then until the soloplayers destroyed that game aswell..

I agree on most of the Points you make ....In conclusion make MMO's more challnging..

Some of the Points has been made by Bioware in itself..In SWOTOR for example, The NPC's is wonderful, many of them atleast..

 

But In your example you you use PoE and ...IMO this is the most overhyped game this year so far..The game is so NOT Worth a average 90% score on metacritic, I have already given up on it, because it has nothing of the immersion from the games it is inspired, It's boring..

Omg..really ???!!!?? ..This game looks SO bad. Is there really anyone that likes oversized swords that  doesnt even look like sword, and teenage Girls that carries these swords, It's just so ugly and redicoulous.

Can't understand how anyone can be happy about this, it looks as it is the same game released (several asian MMO's) over and over again..

 

Ohh Well..

Looking back on MMO genre and its recent slump, one has to ask what is the reason MMORPG reached the stuck point it find itself now.

It is easy to blame WOW and Themepark mentality.  But where lies the real problem ? In RPG.

The original MMOs like Ultima Online or Everquest were very open. Their only resemblance to traditional RPG games was the character building. It is only when Blizzard decided to improve the formula and bring important part of RPG experience : questing , that MMORPG as we know it now was born.

This RPG formula is improved among with everything else and today we have games like ESO or KOTOR that can stand without shame beside single player RPGs in any way. Or even some that are innovating RPG experience like GW2

 

And this is the problem. RPG gameplay became the shackles of MMO.

MMO should be massive social experience. A virtual world. But RPG is single or at best small group experience. Completely opposite to what MMO should acomplish.

 

 

Only by renouncing RPG will MMO truly soar forward.

And we are begining to see emergence of this "non rpg" games.

Elite, Star Citizen, Minecraft, Survival games ...

 

New genre is emerging. MMO without RPG , and it was about the damn time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmm..I'm not sure I understand your logic here..

Early MMORPG was what the technology could develop at the time, no game was fully voiced and quest centric for a reason, smaller market, huge costs and there wassn't the technology needed for it. They where as much RPG as the game these Days just without the Tech to back it up.

UO was the most RPG of them all, you can more/less roleplay any role in that game, and this is what ROLEPLAY really is, NPC's and the likes that gives you quests and such is just Tools to HELP you out since we do not have a gamemaster that can jump in on the fly and tell you of your surroundings .

There is games like Defiance and all the games like RIFT that needs the entire Community to help out clear global threats , and they are RPG's/ (well in CRPG sence atleast :)) 

 I'll argue that games like Dayz and such games (survival games) are very Close related to games of old ..here is a knife, now survive :) UO was much like that, you where basically put in the World and told nothing , you had to find a way to survive even thou it didn't have permadeath-.To me they are also RPG's..and to REALLY survive you will need help from others..What will The Walking Dead be if Rick didnt have hes team of trusted friends..Most likely dead :)

The highest threath i see is the ever increasing solo play , this is the real threat to multiplayer and massive worlds , but that has nothing to do with if the game can entitle itself an RPG or not, you say it yourself MMO's should be massive and most of them are , it's just the darn solo playability that stops these games from feeling massive.

 

 

GW2 vs ESO?

Depends on what you like I guess :)

But I'd say ESO ...That is a no brainer for me atleast.. John Cleese :) and with all the reacent additions it's the best MMO in..well a very long time.

GW2 felt very very childish ,I also felt that my characther didn't belong in it's scenery , and combat felt ..just chaotic ..I was very dissapointed with GW2 and I can't understand why so many players liked it when It released..

As opposed to, kill, kill, kill, rest, kill, kill, kill, rest... and that's it.... We can all exaggerate and make things sound horrible, maybe that's what we should do from here on out.

Exactly.

That is EXACTLY what you are doing , yes ..You exaggerate and belittle those ..that Dream of a game not lackluster

Hmm..Do you really Think most of us longing for a game with some challenge and vits actually wants a game that is a replica of EverQuest ?

I certainly do not , but I do want a game that is free from all the "easies" and a game that let's me Think , and a game that may punish if my thoughts was not that good

I am not sick of all the moaning, because I do not read it. I really fail to see what I should care what people discuss on a forum. It is not my private platform, but a place where everyone can discuss anything (the owners allow). You dislike what is being discussed? Then simply make you own thread with a topic you are interested in and discuss there with like minded people.

Well I have certainly created a topic on something I am interested in discussing. (this topic).

Maybe just perhaps the OP has been living under a rock?

The reason you get the same topics over and over is because the developers have been churning out the exact same game designs over and over and over.So what do you expect to be in threads,just make up stuff?

Here is 99% of the games that are FINISHED and how they are designed.....Enter game,run to npc with marker over hit's head.Do the quest,map and arrows show you exactly where to go ,no thinking needed.Get free xp for doing quest,DING,gain level,rinse and repeat.Now end game level,let's group and do instance grinds for gear,rinse and repeat.

You can hire a kid out of school to design games like that,takes little to no knowledge of anything.

Then we have the flip side of games ,early access,free to play,Kickstarters,ALL of them unfinished products asking for money.

So there you have it,the entire industry,does it sound positive?Does it sound like something we should be praising?Not to me it does not.

So what would the op like gamer's to discuss??Oh how was that second yellow marker quest you did?Oh wow it was great all i had to do was run from point a >B and it gave me a ton of xp.DING level 12 ...Congratulations !!.

 

I am pretty sure you can't hire a kid out of school to design games like that with little knowledge of anything. IF anything current MMOs have a lot more complex mechanics than oldschool MMOs.

What do you want to discuss about old school games? "Ohh how was your day farming a mob in one spot all day". "It was great bro, I barely used my brain". See it works both ways.

 

Again..you exaggerate , naturally there was HUGE limitations back then, and thankfully tecnology has advanced and has enormous potancial to make great MMO's, but unfortunatly the market is dead set on creating games for the Facebook crowd instead of games for real gamers..

Complaining about complaining makes me to complain. No one forces you to read those threads really so problem solved.

That doesn't mean there is no point to making a thread like this. This thread complaining about people complaining is at least not done a billion times. It probably adds more value than all those 5 billion topics which are identical.

I'd be very unsurprised to find that many of these threads are a manufactured attempt at word of mouth trend pushing.

I think that's why we've seen so many "FFA PVP Games Are The Devil" and "Brad McQuaid Is The Messiah" posts.

I wouldn't be suprised if you are right.

Originally posted by Howbadisbad

maybe someone should make a "good things we like in current MMOs" thread then

Yeah, maybe we should do that. And also make 10 of them to even out all the others.

 

 

Maybe It's a sign that there  is room for such a game ?

Since it's a very hot topic in this forum.!!

 

 

 

Hmm..So players consider killing the zombies in Kingsmouth hard ?
