I work at a company that makes and sells MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games). The focus of these games is usually leveling, gaining power, earning money, earning items to help you level and make you more powerful. That type of thing. There are crafting systems in these games and economies in these games, where people can create items and sell them and sell the materials required to create items, etc. My coworker and I were talking about this and I wanted to share what I want in a game.
I want everything mentioned above plus land ownership. I want the massive leveling, hunting, raiding aspects of an MMO, but I want to be able to purchase land or a house or a shop. I’m not into the end game content of most MMO’s. The raiding for hours upon end and fighting tooth and nail for a drop.
I’m into the crafting and collecting side of things. I want to be able to work my ass off so I can buy a shop in a town where people visit and put things out in the shop for people to buy. I want to decorate my shop and place items around wherever I want, then I want people to be able to click on the items they want and purchase them from me. I want my store to be empty and bare if I don’t pay attention to it. I want to have to have good quality items so I can sell well and pay my rent at the end of the month.
And I want it to be pretty.
That is the game I want to play.
