Discussion in 'MMO Debates' started by ogreman, Nov 23, 2009.
And next time I do a debate (IF I do another debate), I want no one else to join in. *sulks*
survival of the fittest implies there is scarcity of players, which in turn implies there are too many games to cater to the needs of all the players
and yes next time i'll stay out of it sorry
Don't be sorry. Open debates are good too!
Anyway, I say that there are not enough MMOs until a free MMO knocks down WoW.
Although this was not planned, I think it has worked out nicely. We may start having more of these issue debates where anybody can support one side or the other.
This debate will be decided when one side gets 10 votes.
is there a way to password protect a thread so only 2 people can debate?
I'm sure there is, and btw, Buzzsaw, do you have any more arguments to make?
10 votes on no, Ogreman!!!!
Ok, the nos have it then. Consider it a victory for you as well since you led that side.
Yay! I won a debate!
Grats on the win, drako.
The way that I see it there are two legitimate sides to this argument. There are not too many MMOs because as an internet-based culture, MMO players expect a niche market where they can find games that are practically made for their own personal use.
This niche market thought makes the MMO Industry face the unique challenge of memberships being stretched too thin. With the major retail MMOs (WOW, Aion, Ryzom, etc.) holding the majority of memberships in the MMO Industry the free to play MMOs are left to fight using the tools of genre, storyline, customizability, etc. to their advantage in order to wrangle the remaining MMO gamers. The problem is the variety of attributes available and the wide variety of tastes held by MMO gamers. The strength of the community essentially determines the success and ensures the security of the game in the market. But with the wide variety of tastes needing to be satisfied and the wide variety of games hoping to suit those needs the memberships are getting stretched thinner and thinner. I am curious as to how this particular situation will pan out.
Well, the big MMOs are doing fine, they've got millions of subscribers each...
And this topic is old.
You should've made. To many crappy ones for another one of the votes in that debate of yours.
can never have enough choices and let the strongest survive
We need more FPS
Well, if people keep making alot of the same thing and don't try too hard to make something more unique or with variety, then yes. Might as well mean there's too many MMORPGs.
There are too many WoW clones for sure.
Agree with joker. Too many wow clones and well, a couple of pretty crappy games designed just to go with the trend of mmorpgs, but also good to really see the which games shine the most.
mm yes too many wow copies. but meh. we could still use more in my opinion (more original MMO's)
