While it's not "classic," I really wish Bioware would have gone with a Mass Effect MMO.

@epilepticemu I agree with you on here, i even said myself it would be awesome if they made the galaxy more accessible it would of made for an awesome MMO. Or at least Dragon Age, the world for that is so big and rich with Lore that it would make a good one as well.

Please no.

can we just have the SP franchises stay singleplayer.

It might be all well and good for some people to play everything in an MMO format.

But i'm still kinda ticked that i will never play a KotoR game again.

ToR might use the universe but it is now filled with a bunch of intrinisically MMO features.

And provides no modding abilitys.

Though given that ME2 was more of a shooter than an RPG woulda been hard for them anyways.

MMO's tend to kill the franchises they spawn from

@alinos

older games aren't really an issue because they tend to have left the universe alone.

like a baldurs gate MMO would work. Seeing as it's been 10 years and They will probably never let them make a entry in the series again. Otherwise i assume DAO would have been that entry

I wonder how long it took for someone at Squaresoft to realize that Marle used Ice magic, not Fire.

Actually they attempted an MMO for the .Hack series, fittingly called ".Hack Fragment", named after the earliest iteration of the world from the series. But yeah, I'd definitely love to see an MMO for that one, at least one that manages to survive for more than a few months. I remember hearing about some fan-developed MMO for it, but I have no clue what happened with that.

It was simply a Ragnarok Online private server with special mods to replace skills, removal of several classes. It was pretty bad.

Personally I've been a huge fan of the .hack series since the initial first game release, loved the first anime as well. The sequel series was alright, a bit melodramatic and pointless story-wise compared to the original, but it was good, the game play kept it's head above the water.

The follow series, I couldn't get into them, they all seemed to be targeting a much younger audience and seemed like another repeat of the story.

This a million times. The GGs, Rapid99, Poison Jam, Noise Tanks, Immortals, and so on and so on all together once again except this time in MMO form.

I don't think my heart could handle the greatness though...

I'd play the shit outta that. Seriously, Parkour based game, with no fighting, would be great, although I dunno how well it would fare on the market.

Making a game solely for in-line skating would be fun but it would limit the game and make it repetitive, but add in skateboarding, foot-racing, maybe biking, and you've got an insane game with different types of gameplay.

To beat repetitiveness, slap on a dynamic generation for maps (IE: Use the same overall map setups for each race, but add in dynamic elements like going X way might be blocked by the cops and you'll have to parkour up the wall, then grind back down on your skates and race back on your skateboard or something).

Anyway, that's just me, imho the great joy of this type of game would be finding the quickest path in an ever changing race.

@Dits

It may not be the same IP, but it definitely looks and runs like the Super NES Zelda: A Link to the Past.

I wouldn't exactly recommend it, I tried it out about 3 years ago and it was filled with bots and cheaters (people using 3rd party programs to run and attack faster in game).

After watching films like True Grit, Tombstone and Unforgiven - definately a Red Dead Redemption western MMO. A nice semi-themepark main RPG story with auxillary sandboxy elements that would have lots of careers to pursue in different towns from bar-owner, undertaker, gambler, thief, bar-girl (.)(.), horse rustler, sheriff and other law keepers, gangs, train drivers, gold-miners, bootleggers, bounty hunters, etc.
Expansions could open up via tresaure maps or tickets from the train station to open up different towns in different states.
