We were talking about PlanetSide recently. I would love to have a chance to play, as it sounds the perfect hybrid of RPG and first-person shooter. Enough action to keep things moving, but with character development and advancement as well. I don’t think I’d pay for it, though…I read a lot of sci-fi, but the PlanetSide world leaves me a bit blah.
What I think would do very well is an online version, along the same lines, of White Wolf’s RPGs. I haven’t played in years, but I used to (Vampire). Imagine a dark, urban/gothic world, where you could build a character, advance them, and have kickass battles as well. Especially if all the White Wolf game systems (Vampire, Werewolf, etc.) were combined into this one massive world. (Sort of like Underworld, in some respects.) I think it would be amazing, and I would probably pay the monthly tariff to play.
If anyone knows someone at WW, please tell them that they can have this idea gratis. lol…
My favourite character was based on Natalie Portman’s character in The Professional (Leon in the UK), all grown up and still a “cleaner.” :)
