Remember when we had this amount of customisation when levelling up? What happened?

OK, here’s the next area that I think needs to be drastically overhauled in the next generation of MMOs: character customisation. Sorry to go on about it, but we would never accept the type of customisation we are offered in MMOs in a single player game. In MMOs, the customisation of your character is mostly limited to: armour/items and some form of the talent tree that we have in World of Warcraft. Bring back the stats, for goodness sake.

In good old RPGs, we used to be able to spend a few points every level on our character’s stats, deciding whether to improve Strength or Intelligence, and each decision had a consequence for the abilities of a character. (more…)

Yesterday’s post was more popular than I expected, so like a good developer, I can’t help but rush out a sequel. The second development that I think will shape the next generation of MMOs is actual a combination of two, but both are required to work together: persistence and story.

When you play a current MMO, you pick up an item, kill a named mob, do anything in fact, and within seconds or minutes they reset/respawn and the world is back to the way it was. There is nothing to make you feel like you have had an impact on the world. If this happened in a single player RPG – you pick up an item, but the item still remains in place – we would be giving the game 0/10 but because the game world is shared with others, we accept it.
