Default Ideas For New MMOs

There have been allot of new mmos coming out recently, it made me think about the possibilities of other fictional universes that would fit well into the mmo format. What Universes (from games, books, movies or whatever) Do you thing would make a good mmo?

A Couple came to mind for me the Elder Scrolls Universe, Zelda Universe and the legend of the five rings Universe.

The Elder scrolls series has such a rich back-story and well developed style that could easily be re-worked into mmo format. There are already races classes crafting a suitable world with starting locations for each race, and Bethesda would make an epic mmo methinks.

I can say almost the same about Zelda but they would be a bit harder to make, ideally combining the worlds from all the games in some way. As for races there are At least Five Hylean Kokiri Deku Goron and Zora. Classes would be easy enough to make.

I donít know how popular legend Of the five rings is anymore, itís a fantasy series set in a feudal Asian (I say Asian because itís based on many different Asian myths and legends) land with warring tribes each with their own unique fighting style and back story.

Anyway that what I think, looking forward to hearing all your ideas

well were on heresy online, 40Ks damn well big enough to have a MMO i go so far to say its big enough for OMTBMG (O my thats a big multplayer game) plus the fan base is bigge enough that you won't have problems ropeing players in to it. they have a wahemmer game why not a 40K?

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Bethesda shouldn't make games anymore unless they are actually going to release a game thats beyond the first beta version. Fallout and Elder Scrolls are always so full bugs upon release they sometimes aren't playable. Its kind of sad.

Anyway, as far as existing universes I would love to see a MMO set in the Firefly universe. If it played like Star Trek it could be pretty fun.

I would also like to see a Shadowrun and Battletech MMO. Shadowrun has a lot of promise for a MMO, as the whole game is based off taking contracts to complete illegal acts. Battletech could be cool as a Planetside (anybody remember that one?) type of game.

At this point I'd like to see real changes to the MMO landscape rather then more MMOs from existing IPs.
