Yeah I'm back again! So my last thread may be a little on the negative side. I wanted to add this thread to highlight a few top favorite features in an MMO. Now, when I say favorite I don't mean 'hey this was cool,' I mean "OMGAH SUPER TURBO PLUS I GOTTA GO BACK SO I CAN DO THIS!!" Woo! So that may be a tinsy over the top... >.> Basically, what were the top 3 (or 5 or 10 or however many you'd like to post!) features in an MMO that wrangled you back in when all was said and done? Here are my top 3 Game Savers! 1. Unique Gameplay / Features: Love it, or hate it; unique gameplay is such a sure fire way to pull me back into a game. My top examples are FFXI, Eve-Online, Tera / DC Universe's combat, and Rift's Rifts. Although many people despised the forced party play, and challenge in FFXI; these two main features continued to pull me back to the game even after years of discontinued play. Not only did these features create such a unique community (since everyone knew how dagnabit hard everything was in that game), these features also promoted a sense of respect among players. Nothing was handed to you in FFXI, and you were all in the thick of it together. You even had to accumulate special items so you could level past the later levels (called genkai). Just as polarizing as FFXI's challenging party play was you also had to go hard or go home with Eve Online's sandbox system. Probably one of the most innovative, and effective features I've seen in MMO's today; this unique feature continues to call me back to those dark lonely spaces of the Eve universe. Now obviously these features can create a severe rift among players, but they can also create cult classics (like Minecraft... which is one HUGE cult!). I've seen unique game features create a strong sense of loyalty, and community among their members as well. 2. Lord of the Ring Online's in game Music System Now I understand this could possibly be posted underneath unique gameplay, but I just love this one feature so much I want to give a whole spot on my list for it! In Lord of the Ring online they have a system where you can play music in the game! (Here's an example! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdPDktHGzCU&feature=relmfu) This may sound silly, but for some reason even after I go on a 6 month - 1 year hiatus I will still come back to this game just to have my little hobbit belt out the Evangalion anime theme song! 3. Rest and Relaxation Whether the game is ugly, addicted to gear treadmill, low population, hard, easy, or I've been away for 2 expansions; if the MMO allowed me a place to rest my head you can probably find me somewhere in there! Whether or not others may find the system 'grindy,' I tend to enjoy relaxing gameplay where I can zone out while enjoying some music in the background. My prime example of this was flying around Northrend in WoW while farming ore, and herbs. Personally, an MMO to me includes many things; fun, hobby, challenge, motivation, but first and foremost it must offer gameplay where I can just relax! So these are my top 3 game savers! How about your top 3 game savers, and possible favorite MMO features you'd like to find in the upcoming hit Wildstar? ^^ Thanks for reading!
