The Daily Quest - What Dead Game Do You Want Resurrected?

Posted Feb 26, 2015 by William Murphy

The Daily Quest - What Dead Game Do You Want Resurrected?

We've all lost a beloved game... and in the MMO industry, they rarely come back unless by less-than-legal means. But if you could pick, what one dead MMO would you see make a comeback? That is today's daily quest.

I'm personally having a hard time narrowing it down to just one, so I'm going to list two that I know I would actually play.

AUTO ASSAULT:

This was one of my babies. I loved it, warts and all. I would kill to see it given a proper second chance, though I know how niche its angle really is. There was just something about my Human Engineer that I loved. It could have used some work, and honestly would probably play better on consoles if it was ever revisited. But I sure would like my Twisted Metal MMO back one day.

WARHAMMER ONLINE:

You don't know what you got... TILL IT'S GOOO-OONE! So true in this one. I want the RVR back, I want my Ironbreaker back. I want to punt people into lava and march against the Chaos scum. 

I'm a firm believer that not every game can be Subscription-Based if we want variety. And I also believe that B2P and F2P can be done well (see GW2, TSW, and others).  I just wish that EA would have given this one a shot as a F2P title where you paid for cosmetic upgrades. It could be true to the Warhammer table-top model, and probably would have kept the game running for years.

But what about you? What game do you miss that you wish you could still play? Something tells me SWG, CoH and Vanguard will be mentioned a lot.
