I put "medievil". I usually lose interest in modern day or "futuristic" games.

Or better put, those I play I really have to dedicate myself to in order to finish them otherwise I lose interest.

I want a "good" Medieval mmo. I would love to see one that has the features of SWG.

I also wouldn't mind a wild west type mmo.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

I only play mideval high fantasy.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

D&D, LoTR, Conan...its called swords and sorcery for that reason, RPGs are mostly based on it because of the early novels and board games are fantasy based time periods that are just like Medieval times.

If lovin games is wrong, I don't wanna be right

I would like to see a medieval that is more historically based (non fantasy) sandbox.  Still holding out for a Mount & Blade mmo in a persistant world with player made factions, castles/cities and politics. Mmmm that would be nice.

 

Other than that a Mass Effect mmo would be awesome but as it is now, I wouldn't want EA or Bioware (in it's current state) handleing the IP. They would seriously F it up imo.

Medieval, but I prefer fantasy medieval as opposed to historical.

 

However, I also prefer it pure.  Let's skip the space aliens, motorcycles, and guns.

Actually i would prefer a true medieval "low" Fantasy mmo.

All big AAA MMOs have steampunk and black powder / industrial (Handguns), that's not really medieval, and factors into the Renaissance / Industrial Age.

The only glowing stuff should be sparks when metal clashes metal.

WAR / AoC / SWTOR / RIFT / AION / STO / TSW / GW2 / GW / Vanguard / Planetside2

There should be a choice for "Any."

I can play any setting, provided the title suits my tastes in gaming.

We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold."

I chose Scifi but a Western setting would be nice as well. The real issue I have with Medieval/Fantasy settings is they have been pretty much beaten to death, resurected and beaten to death again dozens of times over the years. A good scifi or western setting would be a nice change. Scifi has been done a few times as well but there is a lot more that could be done with it. Medieval has been done and redone so many times there doesn't seem to be a lot left that some game somewhere hasn't already done to some degree.

I think the industry lacks a good sci-fi MMO and has done for a while. Eve is not most people's cup of tea, though it is of course a sci-fi MMO.

What was the last attempt at a sci-fi MMO even? Star Trek Online I guess? Buh at that game.

Gonna have to go with medieval, sci fi doesn't really hold me, and modern day just seems silly. I'd rather go outside in the modern day.

Anythings fine with me, I would like to see more primitive/tribal settings though, like Ryzom. Or just something completely alien like Chronicles of Spellborn.
