Default "Avatar movie producer interested in Avatar MMO"

Thanks to Buoyant Rock in IRC:
Avatar movie producer interested in Avatar MMO - Massively

Quote:
The movie has already been turned into a single player game, and now our friends at G4TV report that Producer Jon Landau says he's "very interested" in the creation of an Avatar MMO. Before you groan in despair, hear him out. The focus doesn't seem to be on shoving something out the door right away while the money machine is still running at full speed: "it's something we'd want to do, would be very interested in doing, but we'd have to do it right. To create those worlds is sometimes a long time endeavor."

Landau continues by exploring the concept of 3-D gaming -- a feature that would be almost a given in an Avatar MMO: "I think that the addition of 3-D in gaming tends to be more transformative than 3-D is to movies. [...] I think we're starting to see the start of 3-D becoming commonplace in gaming."
All I have to say... DO WANT

Most modern moniters can do 3D already, you just need the correct glasses and a game with 3D formatting.

Damn...

Now they're going to find a skeleton sat infront of a monitor, various cans of red bull and pot noodles scattered all over the place.

It will be mine.

Boy....maybe I'm way off base, but wouldn't this be cool with some sort of 3D encapsulated monitor helmet and tactile gloves? It could become very much like driving an Avatar in time. I just do flight sim - no gamer I, so I've no idea what might be available in terms of hardware.

The problem I see is that cynical commercial exploitation might ruin what could have been a great game. I just wasn't enamored with the Avatar game as is, and if this is just re-hashed for an MMORPG I feel like it won't do the franchise justice.

I think the success will also be whether JC himself wants it or gives the go light for the MMO and is a major player in it. After all, Avatar is his brainchild, and for it to be mass-marketed as an multiplayer online game is just really cashing in more on the money.. and if it turns out less satisfactory it only reinforces that point..

It seems like many people want to play this game if it gets released...

I will NEVER, repeat NEVER play an Avatar MMO. For several reasons:


1. It will cost money. I do not want to pay money to talk to all of you.

2. I really like our conversations about deeper things the most. These kind of things I feel can be discussed better here and in IRC, than in a computer game.

3. I want to feel Pandora in my mind, get my own impression of how it would feel to be there. Not really play it out in a game.

4. I am not interested in playing a game. I want to talk to all of you, befriend you. Not play a game.

5. An avatar game would force me to focus on that and nothing else if I would like to speak to you. Right now I can do things at the same time, which is very important for me as I am a quite busy person.

In other words... a complete no-go for me.
