Let's be serious; all the good RPG series (The Old Republic, Elder Scrolls, etc.) these days are being made into fancy, newfangled MMO's. It practically goes without saying that the MMORPG model is proven to offer the benefit of a greater social gaming experience with absolutely no costs with regard to narrative depth, mechanics, graphics, or any other measure of quality, so what's there to lose? Should Project Eternity be next?

3rd option...

No and even more of a NO...

MMO = lack of quality in the narrative part...

The use of the word 'MMO' on this board should be punished by public flogging.

Let's get the ip established and make a good first game to start aye? We can worry about making a grindy game with more than likely subpar gameplay after the hopeful financial success of the first release. Example of how not to go about making an MMO - 38 Studios Kingdom of Aumalur.

I get what you're saying, but here I think the evidence suggests otherwise... why would people spend more money on MMO's than any other kind of game if not for superior quality? Not to mention the fact that everyone that has responded to the poll has indicated that they are likely to buy a PE MMO.

Why not just petition Obsidian to make an MMO ... about something else? I tend to think that making an MMO model of any good IP is bad mojo (Skyrim Online, anyone?).

Dawnfall? What's that supposed to mean? Are you for it or against it? ;)
Thanks for the new word, though. It makes my brain cringe.

I bet the folks over at The Elder Scrolls forums would have had the same reaction, called me a troll if I suggested that there might eventually be an MMO... but look what happened.

Dude, I hate to say this but you are so transparent as a troller that it's not even funny. Just look at the dumb arse options you give in your poll:
  • Yes, sounds awesome. I can't wait to throw my money at Obsidian!
  • No, I don't like the sound of that at all, but I'd probably buy it anyway.
Obvious troll fails to include an option for players who are against an MMO release and would never buy it, which is the option that is true for the vast majority of PE fans! Obvious troll is obvious. Obvious troll demonstrates severe troll failure.

This thread should be closed, post haste!

Oh gods, please go away :p

Also, as much as I enjoy GW2 the story is atrocious and I just do it for the end of quest loot.

Well, you best move on to the next internet community and spread your dire prophecy.

And I'm speaking as someone who's playing an MMO. You (and the opponents, really :p) don't seem to understand the main draws of MMOs: Social play in a persistent world. That's it. It's a particularly strong addiction. And as someone with 6-7 years of experience in MMOs, I can attest from personal experience and much observation that regardless of how players lose interest over time, the final reason why people continue to subscribe is social interaction. I remained subbed on one MMO for a full year after losing interest in gameplay just to maintain ties with some people, and I still regularly communicate with a couple despite having quit four years ago.

There's nothing innately superior or inferior about an MMORPG--it is a completely different category of game compared to a narrative-drive SP CRPG. It's comparing puppies to pineapples.

As for SP -> MMO, why yes, SWTOR did awfully well in slaughtering the KotOR franchise and company stock, huh.

Stupid poll, stupid thread, stupid idea.

1/5, too soon after the fat thread.
Waiting a while leads to a bigger impact and it won't be so obvious.

Don't give up.
