Who else here is excited for Transformers Online, the upcoming three-faction MMORPG that runs in an alternate direction from IDW’s continuity and challenges players to rebuild Cybertron as representatives of the Autobots, the Decepticons, or the NAILs? The answer is no one. Partly because it doesn’t actually exist (we would have covered it before), and partly because it’s a game that I want because it is an entirely fictional construct made specifically to appeal to me. It’s a game that I would love, and I would play it, and I would be the only person who did.
I do not believe I am alone in this, really; I think we all have games that appeal to us and us alone. In our minds, we consider what the ideal game would be while freely acknowledging that it is meant for no one else. You might want a game in which everyone is a disembodied elf butt or the only hairstyles are various sorts of pink pigtails, even as you recognize that it appeals only to you. So let’s share those today. What MMORPG would you like to play that would appeal to no one else? Would it be similar to another game (“It’s The Division but with cat people”) or just something that doesn’t exist at all (“Front Mission 5 but an MMORPG”)?
