                The story, the music, the characters, the advancement, the enviroment, the variety, the speech, the immersion, the gameplay, best game I ever played, Bloodlines was the perfect game I just couldn't do anything else until it was over early in 2005, sucking on every tiny bit of content it had.
 
 But it left a void, playing it again won't cut it, and there is nothing remotly close to it even in the works.
 
 There's any hope for anything like it even in the future?

     Yep. Plenty of writers and programmers around. Just need someone with the passion to organize them.

     Well... we could try a massive write-in campaign to ActiVision...
     
     Encouraging new people to buy the game is another way. I've been doing so, on my own site... although my site is small and we don't advertise or anything. But... if the publisher saw a sudden upsurge in new sales of Bloodlines, then they would be foolish not to ask themselves "Why..?" and then (perhaps) act accordingly. Responding to the market is what it's all about, for publishers.

  •                 you are all aware of course that
     
     A.) write-in campaignss, no matter how huge, will never work, and have been tried regardless, all failing miserably.
     
     B.) Regardless of the volume of writers, programmers, and modders present here on PV, we lack the funds, manpower, dedication, technology, and most importantly liscencing to create even the most rhudimentry of video games.
     
     C.) A Vampire MMORPG has been announced by White Wolf (theres a thread about it somehwere), and will probably come out some time int he next 2-7 years.

     I disagree. I've seen some nice games and simulations created as class projects.

     But... what if the MMO sucks, like every other new MMO these days..?
     
     I think it works better as a single-player game. As an MMO, I fear that it's going to be cheapened and dumbed-down, to give it wider appeal. We can probably kiss all of the grittier, adult-oriented content bye-bye. Without mature themes, it'll possibly be little more than WoW-style kiddie krap... so if that turns out to be the case, I'll pass.
     
     Naturally, I hope I'm wrong. In fact, nothing would make me happier than to be wrong about this.

     WoW, EQ2, SWG, AO, Guild Wars... all junk. Warhammer, Age of Conan and Vanguard don't look like they're going to be any better. Everyone has been jumping on the MMO bus these days and most of what they're selling is pretty weak. That glutted market is doing wonders for the Chinese gold farmers, though.
     
     I haven't seen a good MMO that had any integrity since the pre-PoP days of the original EverQuest.

     Have you tried Eve online? It's the only semi-promising one. But not much. It reminds me of UO before EA took over and screwed it up.
