Let’s stop being realistic for a moment. Let’s assume that a game currently running can get a complete visual overhaul. Not changing the overall art style or anything, but have an entire new graphical engine, a total reconstruction from the ground up, all of the graphics of a game that’s been in development and just released but with all of the systems of the existing game. Like taking Ultima Online and giving it the same visual polish and fully 3D look of Anthem, for example.
So which currently operating MMO would benefit the most?
My personal vote is for games like Lord of the Rings Online, games with sufficiently modern systems and design that are still looking a bit janky in the visual department. Of course, some people just want classics to be upgraded; I can’t begrudge people who want World of Warcraft to have the same level of visual upgrade you see in Warcraft III: Reforged, for example. So which game would you pick as getting the biggest benefit?
