The crave to write a simple and easy to follow tips is what I am here for. In an MMO scenario, my articles can be a tool for savvy gamers.Providing essential in-game information to finish different tasks in MMO games.
As an advocacy of better game developments, I would like to share my opinions to all other players and game developers. The things that disgust me most while playing MMO games are the worst designs and system of plays. Yet some of these worst games have even the guts to market their product to almost all websites it can possibly broadcast. It seems to be a low budgeted form of entertainment so to speak. I really hate to see some developers making a mockery of the MMO industry.
Honestly, I am not a real fan of browser based type of MMO games. Sure thing it can be played without a downloaded client software. But think of the other components this type of game would compromised as against to a more systematic client based MMO games. With limited technologies for graphic enriched games to be played in a browsers is so ridiculous. Maybe I can give it 5 to 7 years that a browser can handle sophisticated MMO games which are far more complex that browser plug-ins such as Flash, ActiveX and Java can handle.
Gaming is part of entertainment business. Effort of making games should be at the highest level. It must captivate audience from all walks of life. Visual and sound effects must come in first and the storyline behind the game should be one of a kind. There should be no junkie low-budget projects that would lure people of playing the games that are very much substandard and cannot reach the expectations of gamers both newbies and hardcores.
Once the service for the MMO game is up and running, it should be in consistent basis. Some low budgeted MMO games don't even have a real consistent online service. This is not very cool. It is not helping the whole industry. By the way, with the maintenance downtime take effect every week I think there is no such 24/7 online service. A committee should be formed to minimize this kind of practice. Addressing to all game publishers that be selective in hosting online games. Be sure that the game is very much stable so as players can enjoy and appreciate it.
In my five years of playing MMO games I have recalled five of the worst online games that I ever came across with. This is only my opinion and some players may raise their eyebrows as to what I have listed here in my article. In no particular order let me start with SilkRoad Online. The game has an edgy graphics and slow game pacing. It made me quit after just only five minutes playing time. I said to myself this game is crap and it just made me waste eight hours of client download and Internet access. The blending of colors were not as appealing as to other 3D MMO games I have played before. So the best thing to do was I had to uninstall the game to free up disk space inside my hard disk. Good thing was the game is free to play. So I didn't have wasted any money for subscription purposes.
