I would let Bioware make a Star wars game similar to Mass Effect but with a hop in and out co-op like borderlands.

 

As for a full MMORPG i would like ArenaNet, SOE, Trion, Blizzard, and Funcom.

 

Funcom and SOE are tricky. I would play it form funcom if they use character physics and combat from Age of Conan (not from TSW). As for SOE, they need to go back to their roots and allow many playable races per faction (more than swtor), and a well mixed sandpark with dynamic progression (no quest hubs with ! signs), and voice overs that dont cost 200 million (i can do high quality voice overs for beer).

Also, whoever makes it MUST add open space and let us fly our ships by ourselves from the ground to other planets and have space dynamic invasions. Free roam ftw.

 

And dont forget companions and romance >.> i dont care, i want those too

 

keep on dreaming! :p

EDIT: and bounty hunters get real jet packs with a fuel meter that can be used by pressing spacebar after jumping (like Firefall) not a crappy 1 skill jet pack like swtor did :(

-Leave the Jedi system in it's original form, no adjustements.

 

just my 2cp

I believe leaving this system in place would have made for a better release of the launch of space travel, as well as everything else going forward.

why would they do that?  they already tried,,and failed

[mod edit]

most star wars fans are NOT hardcore players,,box sales for swtor prove that

thats what they realized, and SWG had  the CU,,but by then it was too late

first,,wow was in its prime,,and SWG was ageing at that point

and most hardcore fans left, when EVERYBODY could become a jedi

if they had made the CU in the first year,,maybe they could have turned it around

Did you know that by the original-spec defintion, respondents couldn't be considered trolls at all?

Only the first post, thread creator "trolling for an argument", could 'officially' be a troll.

But anyway, irrelevant to the thread, just historical trivia.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

It's not trivia. You are correct. The term troll has somehow degenerated in some people's minds as a defensive ploy to refute someone who has an opinion which is contrary to theirs.

Um sorry but no, the CU destroyed SWG. Would not have saved it. SWG before the CU/NGE had 300k + subs, which for that time was damn good.  When the CU/NGE hit due to greed from LA, the population dropped by half.

SWG was the least hardcore game out there. Offering much freedom and choice.

SWG wasnt a failure, any game lasting 8+ years is a success in my book. It made profits, and even until the end it got some great updates and features added. Unlike the newer games that strip the features away and dumb games down.

If SWG was fixed up, balance in game was successful, new graphics, with the amount of money that SWTOR had............. yeah it would do damn well in todays market.

Bring back the SOE team that brought us the pre-CU, and the first expansion. Let them finish the product before leaving beta (unlike last time).

It wasn't perfect. I didn't NEED to be perfect. It was ahead of it's time for sure. It's probably ahead of THIS time even; graphics notwithstanding. It was more immersive, thought-provoking, entertaining, and intricate then EVERY MMO I've tried since. I say this without a hint of exaggeration.

I can only imagine what could have been if given the proper management, budget, and goals. So if the topic is something as fanciful as a "what if", then I say... "What if!"

The problem with this question is that everyone out there has a different idea of how MMO's should be.

There are the hardcore sandboxy types who will invariably say CCP should make the game.

There are the hardcore themeparky types who will push for a themepark developer like Blizzard.

Then there are the "somewhere in between" people like myself, who want to have open large worlds filled with random encounters and fun places to explore, but also mix that with your typical instanced raids.  I would also want a character creation system that's totally skill based and tosses the class/level system in the garbage.  Let us build the characters we want to build and then explore the world, but have the option to jump into instanced PVE/PVP with our friends.

I don't know who could develop a game like this tbqfh.

Arenanet does not come close to the popularity of either that I mentioned, try to stay realistic.

I am going to say that they need to use the SWG dev team that was working on it before it shut down. That was the most talented group that I have seen in any mmo yet. The team was a skeleton crew, but they cranked out more huge/epic content in a couple of years than some other bigger teams do in many years.

They took the NGE disaster and transformed it into a really good game.

No, I'm well aware of the baiting going on by both of you.  My Blizzard response, however, is not a joke.
