I am looking for (a great! ; ) ) Online game, that over all, has one unique feature - somehow limited actions allowed to perform per day / week. I am rather old gamer (used to and I do not have the time I used to have.
Nevertheless, I'd love to play a game, which requires planning, effective usage of your available resources, making decisions (rock / paper / scissor dependencies, not 1 path to be the best at everything), advancing and eventually fighting with all that you've managed to get wrapped up.
Of course - all in limited time / Action Points per day / week scope. I'd hope to have 0,5h - 2h per day on average to spent daily actions (to be as competetive as others, so it does not make so huge difference, whether you sit 1 hour or 10h per day). After such mechanics, most imporant would be the community, but I've figured that non hardcore grinding/ analyse requiring game like that (if there is any), will hook only older gamers like me.
I've dug through Aldo's MMO Uber game list (great effort there!),http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/12331750#Comment_12331750
but was unable to determine what actually suits. After few tried, I thought I'd ask >,<
As this may matter, here are some games I've tried and enjoyedPardus
, was the game I've enjoyed most for over 4 years, although it is dying as devs simply left it be.
Other games I've played and liked -MUDs and Ultima Online
- had to start somehow, good timesEVE
- this one was the best, charts, tables, dependencies and choices.Lineage2
- enjoyable, exp, health,mana, gear, skills, quite ok community (long ago I played Tibia, enjoyed the game, but seriously, what's wrong with the evil kids there ?)
I liked all of those, however they made you advance if you put time into it. More RL time, more advance. Meaning in the end, you come home from work and get owned by kids that had spent 12h/day for last year. Eve is a hard nut, but I realised you cannot play this game 'a little'. Play it a lot or give it a break
I've tried Kingdom of Loathing, Nexus Clash and Shratak, Action Points mechanics and rather old / not so much time community like me - great - but it was too basic, had no graphics. I've played Dragon's Call - Action Points mechanics and sufficient UI, just as I was looking for, rest however rather weak. Grindgrind with limited actions per day
I've tried games like Ogame / Travian - but those even if limited time spent, make people wake up in the night to sent army / get resources, wth :>
Non online - I was a standard RPG maniac, Fallouts, BGs, Elder Scrolls, Torment, HoMM. Can't help though, playing with good community is much better then playing single player.
Wow, that was long O_o
Thanks for all and any help !
