The Daily Quest - What Game Are You Waiting For?

Posted Apr 06, 2015 by William Murphy

The Daily Quest - What Game Are You Waiting For?

While there may be a bevy of solid games going on many years of service to the MMO space, we're humans. And that means we're always looking for something bigger, better, and newer to hang our hopes for perfection upon. So today's quest is a simple one: what upcoming MMO are you anxiously waiting for, and why?

Personally, I'm really looking forward to a few, for various different reasons (and this list is by no means complete, just my personal 'most wanted'):

  • Shards Online - Because the former UO folks on this one have some really excellent ideas, and I think it should and could be a real successor to UO.
  • Crowfall - Because I absolutely adore the ideas put forth, even if we have a while to wait to see if they can pull it all off.
  • Camelot Unchained - Much like Shards, it could and should bring back the DAOC vibe we're missing from modern games.
  • Shroud of the Avatar - I have my reservations about the combat, but the overall old-school "get lost in the world" exploration of Shroud holds a lot of promise.

And you know what's crazy about all four? They're all indie, Kickstarted MMOs. There's not a big AAA game in the bunch. We're witnessing a turning point for MMORPGs, as we go back to a "test and experiment" era for the genre because simply cashing in on WoW's success is no longer an option.  One of these upcoming games will set the tone for games to come, if not all of them.

It's pretty exciting for the MMO gamer, even if the more broad-ranging gamers seem to have written off the genre until something "bigger than WoW" comes along.

So then, what game are you wishing and hoping pulls through, and why?
