Default Avatar MMORPG?

I'm just hoping that if he makes Avatar games based on the next few films that the quality of the games are improved and hopefully we get to see/ control the main characters.

Those who know me, know my opinions on MMO games - I hate them with every cell in my body.

I actually made a thread about this a year ago, outlining the reasons why I would never want to play an Avatar MMO, especially not with members of this wonderful community:

Quote:
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.
Most important is,

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.

Playing an Avatar MMO would for me completely ruin what makes Avatar magical. It would dissect the magic of Pandora, analyze every little bit of it, and send it back as number,s data, shallow images of what it once were.

Of course, each to their own - and I know there are people around who would love this kind of game. But as for myself, a huge - NO.

I don't even see how an avatar mmo would work in the first place nor is it a good idea as Eltu said.

I have never played an MMO game of any kind.

Personally, I'd like to see a Morrowind/Fallout 3 style RPG in the Avatar universe.

Well Avatar universe is ideal base to build mmo rpg and it's really great as i love them ,

Two factions RDA and Na'vi ( like horde and Alliance )
Ideal environment for pvp

but sadly imo only one company could done it right, Blizzard but waiting time would be 10 years or even more

not exactly, it might be on nintendo's console, which is being announced at E3 this year (and that's official news)

so if Nintendo makes a proper console, it might get good, but my bet is that it won't.



that said, i don't want an Avatar MMO either.

Pardon me, but.
Wii investment = SUCCESS!

But if it's a MMORPG though, I'd prefer if it was like Lord of the Rings Online: no monthly fees please.

Doesn't sound right, does it?

There is no game on the WII that the game-cube did not do better. And motion controls will never be usable in any fashion other than a curiosity.


EDIT: and as for monthly fee's, you get them, or micro-transactions. Take your pick.

Most free to play mmos with microtransactions end up being cheap knock-offs.

The Avatar universe does not lend itself well to videogames with perhaps the exception of a deep thinking RPG with emphasis on story but that doesn't sell to the mainstream. It all comes down to who is the developer I guess.

This, please. Something you can really lose yourself in.

Yup, exactly. The only way I could see an Avatar game being good, would be if it was exactly this - as Banefull said, "a deep thinking RPG with emphasis on story". And single-player, naturally.

But... I don't see that happening anytime soon. :/

Believe me, I know. I love the gamecube. But keeping my interests in Nintendo was not a complete fail it seems.
