Yes calling it EQ in space is an insult to EQ.
Everquest was fun. You had reasons to advance your character. You had motivation to kill mobs...getting loot, gaining noticeably more power regularly... stuff like that
keeps players wanting to log on and play the game. EQ has
a high 'fun' factor...sure I'm bored to heck with it now; but it kept my attention for 1 1/2 years, and thats hard to
beat. My sources in beta all say the same thing - basically the guy who said it was a glorified chatroom for star wars geeks hit the nail right on the head. Gameplay and 'fun' factor seem to have been left behind unfortunately. Perhaps when the space expansion comes out;
it will be worth playing.
Also I think I've come to realize that in games that use
guns, the 'hit the attack key and watch' approach is lame.
It works ok in fantasy mmogs because its fine with spells.
But if I'm using a gun, I want fps style combat dammit.
Playing Planetside now and having a blast.
