Dana Massey asks "Why not a survival MMO?" I say "Its been done!"

Ok, so yeah a ton of us like our zombie flicks and hack n' slash zombie killing games. Looking at it from an MMORPG player's perspective you'd think there was something we could do to transfer the genre into an MMORPG.

 

Sadly, looking at Left4Dead and The Killig Floor, thats about all your going to get when it comes to online survival.

 

There is a lack of story driven plots that could support an MMO of that genre, and with a lack of that there cannot be any quests/missions to fulfill.

 

Just my thoughts on it.

 You are completetly wrong.

The biggest problem is that with a survival horror you need isolation and unforunately the whole point of an MMO is to have a massive amount of players.

You can get around it by using instances and channels like Guild Wars but then you have to argue whether it is an MMO at all then.

But to say its because there is no plot there is just silly.
