According to SW, MMOs don't really count as games and no one cares about them

MMOs are casual games. People don't buy PCs just to play MMOs.

I can only imagine the kiddies. When it comes to free games, kids are like flies attracted to shit.

Definitely has me interested. Will go along nicely with my PS4 collection. EQ Next looks pretty fantastic though I never played the original EQ.

Never played EQ but with the big ambition they're having with this one, if it doesn't have a monthly fee i'll certainly try it but hate the art style of the game

To be fair, you'd be surprised at how much of the MMO demographic consist of adults that just play an MMO for a couple of hours over the weekend, or a few hours after work, and play nothing else; until they find another MMO that grabs them.

About damn time, they should have done this on the PS3 years ago... kind of wondering if they're not too late though with Elder Scrolls Online coming in the next few months, maybe they're too little too late.

Yes i know that but basically the whole basement dweller moniker was basically tag to nerds who spend endless hours in front of their PC playing MMO.

MMO just like FPS was something that scream hardcore PC playing,now if you talk about fly simulators well that is another thing.

I think he's being sarcastic

And it wasn't one single person, but it happens everytime console gamers argue about how many games or high scoring games the PC has. Because all of a sudden RTS and MMOs are not games

the 2 games that came out for ps2 were great.

simple and clunky yes but having a great community that had no clue you are supposed to be an unrelenting griefer asshole went a long way towards making ps2 everquest even better than the pc version.

i am still in contact and playing games with friends i made in ps2 everquest.

dealing with soe is a chore but i can deal with that if i have to i guess.

Nice! Will this game be F2P like Planetside 2, or will it have a different business model?

Everquest 1 was amazing for its time, Everquest 2 was shit and Everquest Next isnt even Everquest any more.

Some of the absolute most popular MMO's have a higher skill/difficulty cap for both pve and pvp content...than almost any console title save for tournament fighters.

...so casual.

So you're confirming pc has the most number of casual gamers, then? World of Warcraft.

@finalstar2007: That's good, but I'll probably be playing this one on the PC. MMO's just feel better on a PC then a console most of the time. We'll see though. Already playing Planetside 2 on PC.

I'm still not entirely sold on the classless system Everquest Next is pushing.

Locking certain skills into ethical decisions seems like it's going to backfire big time.

The example I remember was helping orcs to destroy a farm to learn a new warrior skill. What if I want to play a good guy but want that skill?

It just doesn't seem like a good idea unless there will be multiple places and ways to get said skill.

If it's F2P I'll check it out, if it's a subscription based game, no thanks.

Not sure what's worse: Everquest, or an MMO on consoles.

I had high hopes of this being the next successful MMO to sit below WoW but I'm now left with doubt and visions of consolisation.

How they hell is an investment of 100+ hours into a single character "casual"?

And when was the last time that people cared about EverQuest?

Some cows said that. Don't generalize like that. Otherwise I could just as easily say that PC gamers support Kim Jung-Un just because I met a PC gamer once who actually did.

It's only okay to generalize if it fits peoples' agenda.

Anyway, **** Everquest and **** shitty PC games. Console gamers don't need this garbage. We have games actually worth playing.

This is what PC gamers consider "games:"

Yeah, that's right: that's a real person pretending to be a little kid who is "raised" by two other players. Yes, she is dancing for a baffingly long amount of time for no reason at all. And yes, that loser does take the game way too fucking seriously.

I know I'm generalizing, but I don't care because **** PC gamers.

Wasn't Everquest supposed to be a sandbox mmorpg? Bloody hell, designing for PS4 means they'll be designing for a broader audience right? That doesn't bode well.
