ok I just have to say this people, I have seen a lot of people talking about permadeath....do you people even know what you're saying.
Permadeath= dumb idea
Reason: While permadeath has been seen as an interesting idea think about this scenario, you make the game harder ok well sit on this awhile. Say a game comes out with permadeath, right so you make a avatar or what ever ya wanna call it. Ok so you spend about 10 to 15 minutes getting that character to look just how you want and you choose your class, K now you're out in the world ya just started and you get you're first quest. Right so you head out and on the way you run into a big pack of enemies no ones around to help what do ya do, ok well you try to fight them but they kill you.... well now you have to start over. Then you make a new one you set out thinking this time you're ready for it, suddenly a player comes up and you think he wants to help but instead he kills you and laughs at you. you start over and there he is again he chases you down and kills you, now just wash rinse repeat.
Do ya see what I'm getting at folks, in theory yes it seems like a neat idea to make a challenge but when you do that you're inviting the jerk players who get pleasure from messing with people like that. They are everywhere and you cannot escape them. So how fun would the game be if you couldn't even make it out of the starting gate without creating a new character. You may say that that wont happen but it will, look what people did to WoW, they dont care about the story or quests or groups they just wanna buy twinked toons on eBay and fight in the arenas. They made a MMO into Mortal Kombat, I mean come on think before you say something. Games are only as "hard" as you make them out to be, its not what you play but who you play it with.
In the end yes a bigger challenge would be great but lets stop the extreme mobile for a minute and try staying down to earth here. Yes ask for a bigger more difficult game one that has a progressive challenge where at lower levels its tuff going but still doable, and later step it up a bit like FFXI did. but asking for something to be so hard that you spend more time restarting then actually enjoying the game world is not a smart idea people would get annoyed and why would you pay a monthly fee for a game you cannot fully enjoy. Be sensible atleast please.
Now granted I have been a gamer since I was 4 years old I'm 29 now I was around in the old days of the original Mario Bros. being the great game of the day, and i can't tell you how manny actual allowance dollars I spent in quarters at the arcades. What i can say is, new ideas are good but don't go overboard and think about more than just what you want think about what you want that will truly work and work well.
