What cultural influences do you like to see in MMOs?

Borrowed' from Massively, join in on the weekday discussions and let your opinions be heard!

One of the things I miss about Age of Conan is the Chinese influence in the Rise of the Godslayer expansion. Robert E. Howardís Khitai was more of an East Asian pastiche than a one-to-one recreation of any particular country, but Age of Conanís Khitai nonetheless added a great big wall, bamboo forests, and plenty of traditional Chinese sound in Knut Haugenís orchestral score. I enjoyed AoCís base game too, but it trod the overly familiar path that most MMOs take by styling themselves after medieval European cultures with dashes of fantasy thrown in for good measure.

Iíd love to see more Asian aesthetic influences in fantasy MMOs, but itís admittedly a personal preference. What about you, MOP readers? Which cultural influences would you like to see more of in your MMOs?

I actually really like it when you have games with massive cultural differences throughout the game as you level. Thinking about it, AoC was actually really good for that. From Khitai, to the desert, to the clans in the snow, all the way to the Greek like Aquilonia, it was really cool, it was probably one of the best MMOs for it.
