Yep, it’s one more day of game recommendations and also one more day until we leave for Germany! Why? Because they’re easy and I’ve been busy getting ready to go away for a week.
Previously I talked about my recommendations for the various business models for MMORPGs and a MOBA. This time there will be more games recommended for a variety of different interests.
Voxel Based: Trove
I love games that let you build things. But I don’t really feel like Trove is that kind of game. Yes, you have an area you can build in but it’s more of an exploration/dungeon crawler than anything. This is a game best played with friends or even family. I imagine that kids would adore Trove.
MMOs That Let You Build: Landmark
If you want to build something then Landmark is the way to go. It has fantastic graphics and some of the things that have come out of it are amazing. I hope Everquest Next is equally as amazing.
MMOs That Let You Create Content: Neverwinter
If you’re looking to make your own custom stories and missions look no further than the Foundry in Neverwinter. This system is available in other Cryptic games but it is really in Neverwinter where it shines. It really gives Neverwinter that little extra feel of being D&D that hasn’t been seen before.
I have to say, this really surprises me but I don’t actually have an MMO I’d recommend for RPers at the moment. Do you have a suggestion for one? It would seem I’m in the market.
PvP: Guild Wars 2
So this might seem like a little bit of a strange choice but I’ve picked Guild Wars 2 because it has such a wide variety of PvP options. You have your one on one PvP, your massive server vs server mobs, and coming soon is a new type of PvP that is a bit like a MOBA. There is also a competitive scene for those who are into that sort of thing. All in all Guild Wars 2 has a well rounded PvP scene.
MMO For Newbies: Guild Wars 2
Are you new to MMOs? Try out Guild Wars 2. There is seriously no more newbie friendly game on the market. Combat is quite simple. Yes, there are things like conditions and combos but these are more advanced things that a new player can ignore until they’re more comfortable with the basics. Players won’t be overburdened by having more than one quest to complete at a time as everything is region based.
That’s all for today. Come back again tomorrow when the first of my Gamescom Blaugust posts goes live!
