What other franchises, book series, television shows, comic books, etc. would you like to see turned into an MMO? Or what do you find plausible?

Personally, with the success of what I would have once considered underground or niche entertainment (like the Walking Dead comics or Game of Throne Novels) we are now seeing some great mainstream attention. Though, that GoT MMO was dismal at best, more and more original "franchises" are being looked at by large companies for further entertainment productions. Like Universal Studios, who had bought the rights to a possible Wheel of Time production. (just film/tv, not the video game rights I believe) Even Family Guy has an MMO. I mean, jeesh.

With the horizon holding lots of open opportunities for what was once niche, let's hear what you would like to see? Or what is plausible?

I think Wheel of Time is a decent bet. Heck, I'm surprised no one has optioned a Harry Potter MMO... though I guess Wizard 101 is close. :D

Another attempt at a Marvel comics MMO? Some FPS MMOs like Fallout? I know it was tossed around for awhile. Something completely different like a Starcraft MMO RPG? The Culture Sci-fi series? A Deus Ex MMO, augs vs people? I know some people won't like some of these suggestions, but hey, sound off. It's your opinion.

The closest thing to a harry potter MMO we will probably ever get is Pottermore.

I'd like to see zenimax media license the rights to Dark Age of Camelot, and make a DAoC 2.

I should have expected this from a ES fansite. I can see similarities. :D

DAoC was such a complete game. Stopped playing in 2006, but I loved the options one had in that game. Also, even though the subs were relatively small in number, it had one of the best PvP systems I've seen during the early-mid 2000s.

Id love to see UO remade with modern graphics and engine.

Another one Id like to see become an MMO is the X series. Dunno how many of you know it. Its a VERY successful and well done single player space game (sort of a flight/combat simulation, mixed with strategy game). It has one of the best communities of any game Ive ever played.

hehe Thats why I said it needs to be redone with modern graphics :)
But hey, if it wasnt for UO, we wouldnt have all these other MMOs. UO started it all, and also had some of the best pvp still to this day. Give credit where credit's due :P (guess I just miss the old school, hard core MMOs)

Speaking of Old School... (Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and maybe N64 for me anyway)

WARNING: I'm in a weird thinking mood right now...

But what about an MMO full of iconic Nintendo heroes and villains. It would play out like DCU Online meets Kingdom Hearts. Customize your toonish toon, pick your tutor, and your fighting style can match a famous character. (Team Link, Team Mario, Team Sonic, Team Fox, Team Ganon, Team Bowser, whatever) And the goal is to become the next epic Nintendo hero/villain, while exploring Hyrule, Peach's Castle, etc.

And PvP is literally Smash Bros Style, but 3D. Mini games are taken from actual Nintendo games. Classic Nintendo tunes in 16, 32, and 64-bit all the way up to the modern orchestra themes nowadays. Like what was used in Skyward Sword. Not saying the MMO would be great, but at least it could claim to be different than most MMOs out now. Might be the most childish thing ever, but if I could be like Captain Falcon, in a cheesy, little MMO with cartoonish, Nintendo graphics and Lego Batman-esq fighting with my "Falcon Puunnch!", I'd probably play it. For a bit anyway. Nostalgia, curse you!

Yea, Gameplay comes first, and yea, I never played UO tbh, but it doesn't sound like you made it to the end-game of DAoC either, which is worlds better than the starting 1 to 50 grind.



Edit: Oh, and to answer the question in the thread, I'd like to see a DAoC 2, in case I haven't said that already.
