What makes a good MMO spiritual successor?

Post by TheHidden01 on Thu Sep 17, 2015 3:26 pm


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

News of Divergence Online’s third crowdfunding campaign sparked a bit of discussion about MMO spiritual sequels earlier this week. Stained Glass Llama’s sci-fi sandbox purports to carry the Star Wars Galaxies torch, though it’s departing rather radically from SWG’s original design by introducing open world PvP and full corpse-looting.

Such a major design change disqualifies Divergence from being a successor, at least in my book, though I’ll probably play it anyway just to see what it’s like. What do you think, MOP readers? What makes a good spiritual successor or sequel? What makes a bad one? Which MMOs, if any, deserve a spiritual successor?

I'd love a Matrix sequel, the whole IP just suits this genre, it breaks my heart to know you can't have one.

Who knows, maybe some day.
