I think game music really makes areas, environments, and even game moments more memorable. I still go back at times and listen to the EQ soundtrack for a little nostalgia.
I completely agree. The game feels like a template: like a base level of a game with no flourish.
The great sandbox games all had unique styles. UO felt like an medieval world. It didn't feel constructed but rather like a vibrant place filled with unique cities that were very large, filled with player homes, and had unique attractions. Eve is a space game, space is VAST NOTHINGNESS, and even it achieves personality with differing systems and player ability to make their space their own.
This game needs unique maps, unique NPCs, events, CUSTOMIZABLE MAPS/TERRITORIES, etc.
Imagine if you controlled a red territory and could influence what/how much spawned and could make your territory truly unique. Things like that give games a personality.
As of now this game feels like a an unfleshed out idea. The idea itself might be good but you need to give it more to make it reality.
