A sad day for the galaxy.By Marlowe Ethos - 1 day ago
As for a game you two should play together.... I have two suggestions. The first would be TSW, it has good story and is really the only MMO to date that has truly immersed me in its world and keptme engaged with quests that don't feel like quests, decent class customization, and dungeons that offer challenging mechanics. But, since it is buy-to-play, my second suggestion would be DDO, with instanced dungeon/quest areas and nearly straight from the DnD handbook character creation it offers a lot to play with and makes for a good MMO for small groups.
Which MMO would I like to see revamped? FFXI. Yes, it's old, I know a lot of today's players would groan at the prospect of having to party and limit breaks but have you ever heard a game called an "FFXI clone" ? It is a unique game with story, awesome party mechanics, and a lot to do from classic leveling, to missions and quests, besieged, hunting NMs.... the list goes on. Just give it a graphical facelift and maybe add a few more class options (*cough Chemist cough*) and take my money!
Gotta say though, this perfect amount of twitch you're looking for may turn out to be even less satisfying than the extremes. From my experience, when people say "this game is too fast for me, but that one is too slow", they don't want the middle ground either, because the real reason for their likes/dislikes lies deeper and isn't so simple.
P.S. Also, this whole story about World of Warships putting to sleep someone who allegedly enjoys tab-targeting MMORPGs sounds kinda fishy. :D
Fallen Earth: despite its clunky controls I enjoyed playing it. I liked the atmosphere and a lot of its features. the game is clearly dated now and a reboot with some mechanic tweaks could result in an awesome experience.
Transformers: id like to an actual mmo instead of the battle arena they released last time. creating a bot and gearing it out while exploring an open world just seemed like lots of fun. so I want this one simply because it never really happened.
There is a ton of games id probably play/buy if they were rebooted though. 9 dragons, Runescape, LoTRO, DDO, Star Trek, are just a few. Lets face it, many of the older games with some tweaks and a facelift would likely do well. especially if some got rid of the pay walls or at least opened their content up a bit more or in the case of those who did their shops well, if they stayed true to the heart their originals.
great question of the week.
Da Bomb to FFXIV. great game that seems to keep on keeping on. after a long break I was pleased to see the new additions and was reminded of all that game does well.
