That's a great idea, I'd love a more reality-based MMO.

Actually, Realtime Worlds has been working on a Crackdown-esque MMO for the PC and 360 all year. It's called All Points Bulletin - http://www.apb.com/

APB FTW! Even though I've never played Crackdown, I've heard so much about it.
2008 needs to come soon (even though they don't say exactly when in 2008 they are gonna release it).

They are still hiring over at Realtime Worlds! -.-

One of the things that distracted from the game was that a lot of people probably only picked it up to get the Halo 3 Beta pass that was included.

Balance would be an issue with an MMO in this area, it didn't take long to become a rediculous one person army able to storm strongholds through everything shy of missile barrage.

The skill improvement by use though I completely agree with being a good system for a game.

Reality, heh, you forget that idea once you've vaulted a three story building or thrown a U-haul.

Skill per use isnt a new idea. UO had it. But i agree it's much more dynamic than get xp to get points to put in skills.
