...to make a new real MMORPG? Emphasis on RPG.
Somehow like Ultima Online RP Freeshards.. like

- You are not the "chosen one" besides 100 others
- You live a normal life and are a merchant/fisher/artisan/hunter/militiaman
- Combat "classes" should be hard to grow into
- You have to craft everything, there are no NPC merchants
- Realistic needs like food/drink/sleep
- Long time to "level"
- PVP everywhere with a bounty system
- RvRvR

With TESO, there's just another theme park MMO.

When it doesn't cost $30 million to develop one just to get people to take more than a passing glance.

The whole exponential development budget crisis in gaming is a self inflicted shotgun wound by the industry to it's own feet.

The more someone spends on development it seems the more something turns out to intentionally aimed at the most fickle bandwagon fans with the highest overturn.

It's a self inflating bubble, that simultaneously gets bigger and weaker, that is going to explode pretty soon unless the non gamer shareholders and "chart pointers" running the publishers are booted out of the industry. Along with the fad gamers.

I hate crafting. It's just an extra grind on top of all the other grinds.

That's not what people want.

They want fetch quests and the ability to pay for hats with cash.

I can't wait til they introduce purchasable hats for GameFAQ's. Obviously I mean outside of the real life stuff, why bother with that, who on here actually ever goes outside..

Have you read anything about the new Everquest game coming out? It sounds like the PCs are actually going to be pioneering it.

I'm going to just start ignoring people that throw around "themepark mmo" around.
