Well I know I am not a hard-core blogger myself. It has been a long time since I wrote a post here, and I noticed I got a lot of view's and and a decent amount of posts. I am going to sit on my couch here and pretend I have a short, bald guy wearing glasses and carrying a notepad who only pretends to be interested in my problems, and vent my issues to you all.

I have been playing mmorpg's for God knows how long now, as I said in my others posts. I have become non-content with the state of games now-a-days. Flashy lights and pretty graphics have consumed the game developers minds. Not all, but most of them. I cry out holding my stuffed teddy bear "Where's my long over-due excitement and in-depth content." I have been in the process of designing a game. For now its only paper and ideas but in the long run as an aspiring game designer I hope to one day see it published.

I have taken ideas from every nook and cranny of the forums. Picked apart my friend's and family's brains for what they feel makes a mmorpg good. Everyone's ideas stream together and yet are separate in flavor. Today I ask you gamers of all sorts to "Lend me your strength." Give me some ideas on what you feel would be a good aspect to an mmorpg. Anything works. I want your opinions and your own feelings on what makes a good mmorpg to you.

I may not have the know how to build one myself and program one myself, but all games start out like all ideas start out. You grab your paper and pencil, your sketch pad, your drawing board and just jump in there. It may take me days, weeks, months and years to come up with something truly good, but I am devoted to it. I want to see a game that doesn't cater to the whiny, that doesn't leave you hanging when in comes to enjoyment. I want something that will give each and every time you log on a sense of excitement. So as I get off my couch. stagger to the door and head to work today. I hope to come back and see some thoughts and ideas.

Well I am back, I have been working for a bit so no time to really continue what I was talking about earlier. Back to the subject now. Everyone has probably heard of the TV show Pimp My Ride. This blog is named after that very idea. Someone please pimp my MMORPG genre. Take that hunk of junk, out dated, rust bucket we call MMORPGs, and give it a overhaul like no one has ever seen before.

Everyone has seen the best and the worst of everything out there. Good graphics, bad graphics. Battle systems, tradeskills, levels vs skill based, and so on so forth. Eventually everyone reaches the end sooner or later. Even with the edition of what companies call "content", it still leaves something to be desired. Its the same over and over no matter how you play or what you do. One players blacksmithing wizard vs. anothers tailoring tank. Take WoW for example, sure u might be a night elf priest one day and the next a human warlock but basically to interact with other players or pretty much do anything at all you have to occupy the areas that are best known to be traversed. It makes it so every playstyle whether different in some aspects ,are almost ironically the same.

I have some ideas for what I feel a great mmorpg would be like but that will have to wait till next time I decide I have time to log in and write. This time give me some feed back on what you or others feel a great mmorpg would be like, I would love to hear about other ideas. If you have a post already let me know so I can read and post for you also.

Since the days of Ultima On-line I have been an avid mmorpg player. Slowly migrating from one game to the next trying to find the next best game. Each game brought new advancements in the mmorpg business. From content to graphics to a great community. When i started playing Everquest i found something that really intrigued me, a game that brought together all three things that really make a mmorpg great.

That is until Velious expansion came out. Thats when things got screwy. Old zones became obsolete, things that really made the game good started to decline with every expansion after that. But anyways thats a totally different topic all together. I will skip to the end of the story and straight into the bulk of it all.

I ended my mmorpg days with WoW, tried a few others but nothing more then a few weeks maybe eve days. I began to realize that todays games seriously need a "Pimp My MMORPG" style overhaul. Todays games have amazing graphics, from realistic character models to dazzling environments, but at the expense or what a game really needs. Content and community. I have played some games that have decent graphics but the content is what really hooked me. With good content brings a game that people can really enjoy and therefore brings a good community.

Well this is what I am ending with for now. If you read this leave some comments on what you think of mmorpgs today.
