Hmm tough one for me, there are some I really like

* Shadowrun - Really love the sci-fi cyberpunk of the game, spend years on the game and I loved it.
* The World of Darkness setting - Currently in development by CCP but I am hoping it will be expanded beyond vampires only.
* Exalted - Another White Wolf setting that has a good potential for an MMO

World of Darkness for the win. I would love to see some Mage rules or even Changeling in there as well. My hopes are drawn tho at Wraith. even tho that one was my favorite. It would be awesome tho to see the fight of the warewolves vs. vampires. You know its gonna happen. Gangrel ftw!! :D

Another vote for Shadowrun and Exalted.

Though I will not be a happy camper if someone takes 'Shadowrun' and makes something that is decidedly 'not Shadowrun'. *cough-microsoft*

Vampire: The Masquerade ~ And I'd love to see Bioware develop it or if not them them, have Black Isle Studios resurrected and let them do it!

Would like to see a honest adoption of Shadowrun and also Rifts.

Traveller ! ! !

The great grand-daddy of all sci-fi RPGs is still one of the best out there. It has all the scope of an epic and mysterious interstellar conflict and yet works right down to the personal level. The lore of the Traveller universe spans our own history and a few thousand years into the future with well though out alien psychology and political motives. There are Psionics, powered armor, mercenaries, pirates, enourmous ships, little ships, royalty, mega-corperations, uplifted species, engineered humans, ancient alien civilizations (both dead and still alive).
For an MMO, I think Traveller has something for everyone.

That would be cool because Traveller has a few themes that I think would work well in an MMO, like:
* Interstellar trading: learning what to buy and sell where. Deciding if the risk of pirates or going through a war zone or smuggling to an interdicted world is worth the profit.
* Exploring weird remnants of alien cultures and wondering what it all means.

@Bolongo Just the merchant prince part of the game is a game in itself. The "crafting grind" would be huge!

@rtwod2 Yes, I was hoping Eve would be close but it let me down on several levels. I still have a bunch of the Traveller books after finding them in the remnants of my parents' old game store.

I would totally support Traveller, provided you had the chance to die during character creation. :)

OMG, I forgot about that game. I've played that, Rifts and Champions (too bad the MMO is not like it).
