Ultima online

For a good period of this time - it was simply brilliant, you could become masters of crafts, or you could build boats and go mining, or find land for a house or a castle.

OR

You could steal people's boats full of mined ore, become a wanted criminal and sell that hard earned loot to another player for two-thirds of the price (and you get to keep the boat).

OR

Just go dungeoneering, or form caravan parties or bodyguard guilds, or engage in guild battles or faction wars. Or go slaying world bosses for great treasures and weapons and armour, or catching criminals or duelling.

OR you could ambush other players at the entrance of dungeons and mug them for their hard earned spoils...

You could fully modify your home and turn it into a shop with your own vendor.

You could advertise your shop with teleporting runes that claim to sell 'cheap magic swords' and teleport them to one of the very few islands that you managed to find any land on, complete with a thousand poisonous snakes and an over-priced antidote vendor in your house.

Good, good days... Great game.

For me, it was Knights of the Old Republic. I absolutely loved that game.

I agree totaly

This game was FUN to play.

Btw Electronic Arts/Origin has worked on Ultima Online 2 for months/years and when the project was almost done, around 90% (there was up to 50 developers working full time on it by that time) it was looking like "World of Warcraft" when its been released later but way better and way more funny/rich to play. Then EA released an Alpha version of Ultima Online 2 that few people were able to test. Then they said Ultima Online 2 was cancelled because it would "disturb"/divide Ultima Online 1 community, "lol". Then they disband the Ultima Online 2 dev team and "fired" Lord British (Ultima creator/Origin founder) who started another MMORPG project for a Korean company.
Then 1-2 years later World of Warcraft was released.

Best ever thats a tough one. I would have to say FF7, or maybe Knights of the old republic.

I think earlier, I said Oblivion, and that's true to an extent, but yeah, Ultima Online was definitely awesome. It'd be great to see something like that but with today's graphics and first-person perspective.

Being able to own a house, realistically ply a trade, etc. The player-driven economy would really help to eliminate some of the bad things about EverQuest WoW, etc. There is SO much that could be done with this now, but developers just don't seem willing to invest the time and money needed...they want the quick return.

My favorite has got to be FF7 never played a RPG until this one i loved the exploration in this game just had to find all the secrets the things that are sadly missing from most games now.

I wish they would do a remake of this.

And shenmue i am still waiting for part three don't think that will ever happen.


Note this is not a real trailer to shenmue 3 but i wish it was

Edit to add there may be a glimer of hope for shenmue 3



SEGA mastermind Yu Suzuki has said that his latest project could pave the way for a continuation of the infamous Shenmue action RPG series.
Speaking to the Japanese press last night about spinoff MMO game Shenmue City, Suzuki explained that he has every intention to create a Shenmue 3 and satisfy the apparently endless requests for a sequel.

Thanks

Absolutely, indeed the closest to any form of player driven economy game i'd say is Eve online.

But i'd like a fully customisable (but NOT 'sim-like') avatar placed in a fantasy world that contains dungeons, world monsters, free market and haggling, guild events, auctions, faction and guild battles, but also some of the sneakier side of game playing as was observed in UO. Such as pickpocketing, corpse looting, vehicle sabotage, ambushes, etc.

In other words create a semi-realistic microcosm of a society but with the ability to use world resources such as ore, fishing, mining, smithery, tannery, tailoring, weapon building, armoury etc etc etc but also give players the risk of exploitation as well as opportunities to build safe guards, caravans, body guard recruitment etc...

Oh and housing systems, such as finding land and bidding wars and land taxes etc.

Sorry i'm rambling about my perfect imaginary game.


I also like the 'flower' system in UO, with the seed system.

Which one would I choose, hmm...


I have a number of favorites though. FFX, Suikoden III, Skies of Arcadia.

I hate to say....I'm not a huge fan of Oblivion. The customization is amazing, but the story isn't that interesting. Even though Skies of Arcadia is linear...you can hardly beat the experience, the vibe/atmosphere is unmatched.

Edit: FFVII was a favorite as well.
