First off I found this and this is not my idea but I have been thinking of somthing just like this. Someone (Game Company) should make this. What do you guys think?
While watching a clip for the upcoming Transformers movie, the idea hit me: What about a Transformers MMO? The universe of the Transformers seems ideally suited to doing something like this, there are two factions at war with one another for PvP content, there could be exploration, crafting... all kinds of things.
Here is the idea as I have it thus far. Players would have to choose one of the two sides, either an Autobot or a Decepticon. Unlike other games where you choose sides however and are stuck with them, in the Transformers MMO there should always be the possibility to try and switch sides.
In this game characters would start of by creating their transformer, customizing how it looks with modular building tools (think something like the Spore creature editor) and adding various abilities and equipment from whatever the initial selection is. Everyone would start with two transformation options and what they would be capable of doing in either form would vary a bit of course.
Advancement within the course of the game would involve improving upon the design of the character slowly, perhaps even eventually including adding or changing the transformation options. Crafting would involve the construction of mobile bases and starships and other things, or fortresses to hold key points (and weapons and such too). The conflict in the game would be about resource and territory acquisition of course, as well as playing to the ethos of the two sides. Decepticons would think nothing of trashing some earth city to build something or to harvest the area, and the Autobots would not let that kind of crap fly of course.
Could be a really fun game if implemented well.
