Well Now,

For me it''s simple. I love to level up as much as
I can. Special opponents that can;t be defeated
or need special objects to defeat them are also
a good idea. But for me personally I normally
finish the game before I reach the Max level up
or whatever.

I''ve brought up this point on another thread a while ago, and I''ll bring it up again here: MMORPGs are NOT a new thing. They''ve been around for many many years in text form. MUDs, MOOs, MUSHes, or whatever acronym you care to use, have been playing with these ideas and more for almost a decade now.
I urge everyone here to go try them out. I think you''d be suprised at how many different gameplay styles you''ll come across: everything from pure-combat to pure-roleplay.
Don''t be put-off just because they''re text based. A lot of them have some really great and innovative approaches to combat, roleplaying, and social interaction. This includes ideas put forth in this thread, such as no levels and non-combat-centric gameplay. Check them out, and you can often see how some of these ideas worked in practice.
And no, I''m not some MUD zealot. Haven''t played them for a while now, I just think that we could draw off the experience of them. Some MUDs have been up for >8 years, and are constantly evolving.

Morbo, I know exactly where you''re coming from. I am a MUSH veteran myself, and I wonder why it is that we can''t make room in graphical MMORPGs for that audience. It''s out there, why not use it?

Damn, I''m gonna have to pay more attention to Silvermyst''s posts. I''ve been hoping to hear stuff like that for years, and now I am, straight from ''el Pez de la Terra'' no less. Well, I *was* hoping people would be saying it to *me*...

Has anyone considered the type of game where the goals you have to achieve are social? The ones where the stats that matter aren''t your strength or speed, but are calculated from choices you make? I admit there aren''t many of these games - offhand I can only think of Tamagotchi Boyfriend (don''t ask) and the ones where you''re a detective and you can only ask people so many questions and if you make them mad they won''t talk to you any more. Wouldn''t this kind of system be more appropriate for actual ''roleplaying'' than any kind of a physical attribute-and-weapon based system?
