Default Fewer Appealing MMOs

*sigh

There are fewer and fewer MMOs going to be released. Those currently available and coming soon are either P2P or heavily stressing on MyHax. The industry is turning into a more money-oriented one now...

I've got pretty much nothing to play; its either I've gotten bored with the old ones, not excited about the current titles, or waiting and waiting for future games to be released, where P2P and MyHax are going to be rampant.

Not many new MMOs are going to be released... I'm getting bored...

Must check out GCA for any new titles. Meantime, what do you think about this situation or suggest anything worth playing so far.

You're not alone on that regard but I think it more or less has to do with the more games you played, the less appealing other games will be to you.

I'd also agree with the more money oriented thing...I mean back then it took games a while to even have a myshop kinda thing implemented but now it's released right with the beta or something like that.

Well at least there aren't games that are p2p AND myhax.

Are you guys talking about MMO in general, or only MMORPG's? Because most of the non-RPG MMO's I've played are not very Cash Shop oriented~

Money obviously runs the world, not people. There is nothing we can do except stop gaming. The bigger the gaming community is, the more profit a company see's in it.

Why is money always involved in games?

They need to pay for the labor involved in developing the game, advertisment, websites, art, music, storyline, practically everything. A person going out of their way to spend all their money on developing an MMO to gain no profit will be hard to come by.

I wonder why people still dump in so much money into a virtual character.

If you look at the Terms and Conditions, all game assets belong to the respective companies (You don't own anything)

Pity the l'il kiddies

Let's not start with the issue of why people dump money into a virtual character. That's like saying why dump money into video games at all.

So how do they make money? Unless you mean they're sorta like shooters or 8 person room games.

Dump money into MMOs =/= Dump money into Video Games

Theres a significant diff.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyways,

P2P - if the game is good, yea I understand
F2P - come on... using MyHax to tempt people...

If you're going to complain about something so trivial, I'd rather you not play and spare us the garbage. People are free to do what they want. Companies can charge money for whatever they want, and players can pay for whatever they want.

Oh I was referring to stuff like the MMO company doing something like a bnet and make people host their own rooms to save a bit on bandwidth

Well those two games still sell fashion?

Yep, they do. But they don't focus on Cash Shops, plus the in-game counterparts look better IMO (though quite expensive~)

Fewer appealing games in general from my point of view. Oh how I miss the days of a new side scroller every week (well four releases per month).

examples:
* gunbound - free to download and play, alot of items can be bought with ingame currency and there's avatar-off zones
* starcraft - you pay once for the game and never have to pay again.
* stepmania online - free to download and play, the server owner does not require you to pay money, just asks for donations

but those are non-mmorpgs
maple back in the day had no cash shop
and when it did, it was fashion only
pets did not provide THAT big of an advantage
and exp cards did not come out til years after the game was released

yea that's why i said it didn't used to be so much about the money
years ago
but now it is
what's sad is that every mmorpg that comes out uses the same tactics over and over
i was thinking maybe there's like a cash shop pinball game you play, and your score gets added onto your exp or something
or there's a casino and you buy poker chips with your exp and gamble your exp with other players
but it's the same shit over and over
buy a booster/card/pot/etc. and you get increased exp for a fixed amount of time
i'm hoping for more interesting ways on how to get extra exp

^Probably cause gambling is a vice, and the company doesn't want to expose kids to that? Personally I still prefer p2p games over f2p+myhax. The whole idea of buying statted equips with cash is really a turn off to me. I find it much more rewarding when you hunt for and gather mats, and then you get a crafter to craft you your helmet/armor/cape etc.

please tell me ur kidding
most cash shops include a form of gambling
most ingame content includes gambling
you just described an example of gambling in your post where you said that companies don't want to expose kids to gambling

and i'm saying that there should be methods that involve some kind of skill
instead of just luck
