Title: Sick of swords
Posted: March 20, 2006 (12:12 AM)
I've been trolling around websites, looking at all the MMO's coming out over the next year and a half, and I'm not all that excited. What is with all the fantasy settings? I play World of Warcraft regularly, but I don't get into the swords-n-sorcery settings as much as other people seem to. Give me sci-fi, cyberpunk, or even a modern day setting, but please ditch the orcs and elves for a while. It's complete overkill.

From a company standpoint, I thought more companies would have been trying to differentiate themselves from the competition. Instead, it's almost all the same old thing. I do think Huxley sounds interesting, but I don't really know that much about, Webzen, the company behind it.

Look at how well The Sims and The Matrix Online are doing right now. Phallic swords and night elves are the way to go, brother.

Check out EVE. We've lost DoI to its space piratey grasp already!

I can't even explain how many different versions of LOTR names I've seen on World of Warcraft. I want to reach through the computer and smack every single one of them.

Eve does look good and I do want to try it pretty badly. I know there are a few MMO's out now with different settings, but I was referring to upcoming titles.
