Exploring War Like Worlds.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Posted on: August 13, 2009

Heartless was talking about what he wants to see for the new star wars MMORPG.

I’m not hopefully about this game. It seems way to Sith centric and I see it being another game pandering to the fanboys who want to be Vader.

I think they should have forced the players to be heros like in Lotro, and just had factions (3 at least) based on that. Like rebellion, folks in the empire working against it, hut/crime based sympathisers to the rebellion, independants etc.

I just can’t stomach the idea of running around with all those sith wannabees claiming the dark side is more powerful and is the quickest and best method of power.

It seems to me completely against what I liked about Star Wars. What I liked about the early sci-fi was it was inspirational. That it imagined better worlds than our own, where evil was defeated and humans could rise above their natures. All these new sci-fi seems more depressing.

Perhaps in 10 years the cycle will roll around again and it will get better.
