Single-Player RPG or MMORPG?
Hey, folks. In case you haven't noticed. We have a new voting poll up. So, yeah, it's about whether or not you still prefer single-player RPGs over MMORPGs (and vice versa).

Oh and just to let you know, here are the results of the previous voting poll (I think it is what we've all expected more or less):

My favorite gaming platform right now is:

  1. PC - 3,207 votes
  2. Xbox 360 - 1796 votes
  3. PlayStation 3 - 1513 votes
  4. PlayStation Portable - 540 votes
  5. Wii - 437 votes
  6. iPhone/iPad - 382 votes
  7. PlayStation Vita - 110 votes
  8. DS - 107 votes
  9. 3DS - 78 votes

redundant question if there ever was one.

Problem is, I like both if done right. WoW is great because it's built much differently than others, mostly due to the years of experience in constant updates. MMOs can be good as well but needs the right type of gameplay, either new or better than previous versions. The issue with a game like Elder Scrolls online lies in the major change in the original gameplay formula, much like WoW did. However, the change is not what people wanted (much like WoW I'm sure). People wanted an online Skyrim or Morrowind, where it would be multiple people playing together doing quests, dueling, or just dicking around.

It would be like taking Call of Duty and making it in the vein of WoW. You'd have your Heavy guns (Tanks), your medics (healers), Assault troopers/grenadiers/snipers/etc (dps) but is it still Call of Duty? No. Much like WoW is not really Warcraft. It might have the title and the lore, but it does not make it the same type of game. It can be said with TESOnline.

We need less MMOs and more single-player RPGs with the option for multi-player co-op.

Here's some ideas that would push THE MMORPG genre forward.

1. Get rid of the healer/dps/tank. It's frustrating, It's getting old and it's getting lame.

2. Make it so that the community can join in adding content to the game.

3. Remove health bars. Add a system in which any body part reacts accordingly when it receives a sword slash, an arrow, a fire ball, etc.

4. Add a physics engine in which every weapon has its proper use. Block an incoming hit with a shield not with defense, protection or other so called "stats". Use a spear for charging horseman, use a mace to smash through heavy armor, etc.

5. Create a proper, believable world. Make dungeons, tombs and caves, dark, scary, dangerous. For once add some proper forests. (take note from Gothic 2).

I'd go one with many. The thing is, they will shift into this ideas I've mentioned, sooner or later.

This type of MMO's where all schmucks gather in an area and just run and jump around, needs to end.

Single Player RPG's forever. Screw those fucking MMO's!

Only reason I would choose "MMOs" is due to Guild Wars 2. But it's not out yet, so Singleplayer RPGs ftw.
