The Daily Grind: What MMORPG would you like to play that would appeal to no one else?

Well, yes.

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”)?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

This The Daily Grind is making me depressed. I’m an optimist, so I am a tiny bit hopeful. But mostly depressed.  :(

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I would love a few new MMORPGs: 
One based on the Shadowhunter Chronicles

Several based on Chronicles of Darkness Games (Vampire the Requiem, Werewolf the Forsaken, Mage the Awakening, and Hunter the Vigil) 
One based on Age of Sigmar
A good wasteland apocalypse mmo that isn’t a zombie or a survival game
A good alien invasion MMO
A first person game where you play as different native american nations
A Marvel comics MMMORPG where you create your own hero (Like DCUO but for Marvel)
A MMO based on Dune
A good steampunk MMORPG that focuses on the Steampunkiness (possibly lovecraftian)

And I agree with your idea for a transformers mmo
