OP  1/25/13 9:13:26 PM#1

Must say I was taken back. Since I play BF3 it was easy to get into and understand.  The vastness of how big the world was worth a wow or two and yes you could see the huge smile on my face.  One thing wasnt so great was my labtop graphics. Labtop is about a year old and I found Med at 1024x768 low shadows did the job. 

Game play was fun and I kept trying to get air like Tribes 2. I was sad I couldnt fly right away or drive the big Tanks ect... but it gives me something to look forward to. Great thing as a noob was being able to get into a gun ship or tank as a gunner, this made up for my need to fly right away and gave me patience. Still dont know why I picked the  Vanu Sovereignty, Im thinking RipperX helped on this.  Thank you and I'll see you in the game.    DireLion

i enjoyed my time in PS2 with some friends. I havent played in a while but i i have fun whenever i log in. One thing is for certain. If it was Third Person Shooter i would still be playing constantly. I love Battlefield 3 but im not much of a fan of First Person perspective. I havent played BF3 either since around the time they released the premium service. The massive scale of PS2 should become standard in shooters IMO, but just because of the FPS view in PS2 i would personally stick to Firefall and Defiance.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

garbage game, quit within the first week (coincidentally just like gw2). offers no incentive to play. just a big kill fest that amounts to nothing.

If you need an incentive to play then your playing games for a wrong reason man. You play for fun don't you? *Shrug* I dunno, I understand there are a lot of games that are out there that arent for certain types of players. But, saying you don't like a game cause of incentives... doesn't that make a game for fun a game for work instead? Anyway to each his own.

I played this game for 20 mins and quit. Hacks and bugs plus just a cheap halo. I cant believe people even play it.  Well that is  me.

if Halo had the size and scale of PS2 i would play Halo instead since its a lot more polished, but  to me Halo its just a small team deathmatch game like counter strike with sci fi skin that also happens to be popular. Im spoiled with big maps so i stopped playing shooters with small maps after BF3 came out.


 But like i said in an above post, i prefer Third person shooters over First person shooters.

But yeah, to each his own.

Bf3 Armor Kill has has a few maps that are Crazy big.  I do see what your talking about  with the 3rd per . More options the game has the better.  ( Just signed up for ESO Beta)

That is exactly it, there is no fun anymore, its all about aquiring things, or its a "waste of time".

When there is a ton of stuff to aquire in PS2, but its so fun to play I hardly notice that I am "grinding'.

Yeah and the great thing about Ps2 is you dont have to aquire something via the cash shop to effective, they give you decient guns to begin with, of course you may have a different play style to the weapons you start with but thats personal requirement. I dont even notice the cert gains im too busy (having fun) shooting people in the face, then 2 hrs and oh look i got certs to spend.

What were you guys hoping it would "amount" to?   What does killing all the NPC mobs or raid bosses in WoW or any other MMO amount to?    

I play with some friends, and it simply amounts to lots of fun for us.   We don't have to grind for levels or gear to play together, or fight the matchmaking system breaking up our party like on BF3, we simply login and send squad invites.   Then we go have fun.    

 

What exactly is everyone looking for MMO's to amount to their in lives that I'm missing?    

 

If Cowboys and Indians had a forum when I was a kid I guess everyone would be on there complaining there was no incentive to play and it didn't amount to anything.....   /shrug

Just spent a couple days playing PS2. Now I know why I play Dust514. PS2 is horrible comparatively!

Played for a month as payed member got fed up with the game being buggy and getting  choppy after a while.  No 64 bit client and still only directx 9. The cheating on the server I was on got worse and that was the people who made it obvious they where cheating let alone the sneaky ones.

Hopefully SOE are working on these issues and I will probrably go back when they sort this out, until then i'm keeping hold of my money and will use the FTP to pop in and see how this game is progressing.

lol most of these alleged 'hacks' are lack of skill on the person that is crying about it.  There are very few hacks in PS2, they are there but nearly as bad as many other games I have seen.

The game is fun, and once you enderstand it, it get to be a great time.

Also, join an outfit this is not a solo game and you will usually end up not doing much without help.

If you want a new idea, go read an old book.
