I am dying to see the finished form of the Firefly MMO that is supposed to be coming sometime.

I would love to see a Terminator MMO; the ability to design an avatar with Arnold's appearance is worth $15.00 a month!

A couple of thoughts:

First one would be Marathon Online. Second one that would be cool would be Deus Ex Online.

Then again I have written a cyberpunk trilogy that would work as both a game/MMORPG as well.

I've been waiting for a really good Cyberpunk MMO myself. Someone needs to do that already!

Firefly? Are you kidding? That would be AWESOME! /goes and does a google search on firefly mmo!

I always thought a really well done mobster MMO would be really cool. Players could either be the police or mob. Bribes going back and forth. If a gang is too active, police can get warrants, conduct surveillance... etc... etc... If properly done, it could be very cool.

I'd personally like to see something based on either the Neuromancer world, or Snow Crash's virtual world.

Something involving hacking and cyberpunk stuff, not just future tech and biotech and increasing amounts of glowy things on weapons. (not that it's bad...)

Elder Scrolls MMO anyone? With the same free-form of course..Pickpocketing other players ftw!

I'm curious how the proliferation of virtual worlds might affect this, since from within those places are massive teams who build RTS games, full blown combat systems, RPG and LARPs and the list goes on.

Will we ever see a hybrid that takes a story and has one part game, one part social/sandbox?

In my own personal opinion I think the New Jedi Order books would be a wonderful setting for a new Star Wars MMO. You've still got recognizable characters from the original movies yet there is a lot more wiggle room in terms of what you could with that IP.

Wow, and here I thought I was the only one who loved the idea of a New Jedi Order Star Wars MMO. The Yuuzhan Vong were beings that didn't exist in the Force, making for a great foil against the Jedi. It evened out the field a little, letting the guys with guns stand a chance, as was shown numerous times in the 19-ology.

Personally I would love to see a Doctor Who MMO, I have no idea how it would work, but the developers would have all of time and space to play with.

I would love to see Battletech, Warhammer 40K and the rpg RIFTS turned into an MMO. Preferably in that order.

I loved Firefly but I don't think it would make a good MMO, the bigest story of that world has been told. IMHO same with Stargate and SWG.

Personally I'd like to see something where the story hasn't been told yet, I loved the background to Anarchy Online, but that was a wonderful example of how not to convert a Fantasy MMO engine to Sci-Fi. The story had almost nothing to do with the game content.

Something like the RPG SLA industries would be perfect for a MMO, Dark enclosed spaces, check.
Medical tech that works like resurrection, check.
Focus on H2H rather than ranged combat with a good explanation why, check.
People can act like idiots without breaking character, check
Edgy, Cyberpunk-meets-Cthulhu story, check.
Story reason for PvP, check.
