I want to run my own online gaming company.
How many of us play online games and see things that could be done so much better than how they are currently doing things?
How many current companies that aren't really handling the games or the customers that well are getting big infusions of millions of dollars worth of investments just because they are an online gaming company?
Is this the new investment bubble that's going to burst later? Is money just going to be thrown at online gaming companies just because they're an online gaming company?
That is not at all why I want to run an online gaming company. I want to run one because I care about the players, the games, the entire gaming media and online worlds in general, and I am 100% fair and straight with people and will never be able to be corrupted in that sense.
Some of the current "free to play" games are so greedy in the sneaky way they have you spend money trying to get things in a "random" box that almost are never attainable, that they are frustrating people away from the cash / item shop supported model of game play.
Other companies just treat the players like crap, like little cash machines and don't care about them at all. They have terrible communication, terrible service, don't listen to the players, don't care that much about the game worlds.
Some places, even big places you would never imagine would do this, they give their friends unfair advantages when they play their games. This really does happen, and doesn't get reported or caught often. Other places, you should see how they feel about the players when you get into the volunteer player GM programs. The main GM's themselves will many times not like the players, laugh about the stories they believe that the companies feed them, and many programs are very corrupt behind the scenes.
I was the only female volunteer in an all male program somewhere, and I got sexually harassed by the GM's daily and had to hear the most horrific things that players would never be allowed to say. Complaining just made the entire program turn against me. That was really fair.
You see I would care about my players, all of my players no matter what types they were. I would care about the game worlds. I would care about communication with the public and the players. I would keep my GM's under control and treat everybody completely fairly. The GM's and player volunteers would be held to a higher standard. It can be done, I know because I am not corruptable. That may sound like a line, it may sound naive, it may sound like I haven't been tested, but that is not true. I hold what is right and fair above anything else, and I would not lower my standards for anybody or let any "friend" get away with anything either. The GM and volunteer program would be clean.
I am into both types of games, the deep story games you can get lost in and feel like a real world, and the cutesy ones that feel like a cute fun game. Well, I'm into a lot more than that, but for MMO's they generally are either this deep real story (more Western MMO's) or this cutesy fake anime cat suit wearing world (most Eastern ones).
I guess by the time I am old enough to actually do something like this, that there are going to be even more game companies out running online games. People keep buying up the rights to the Eastern games, so there aren't going to be a lot left to get translated and get the rights to.
I believe you can have pride in and run any game right though, no matter how small.
And maybe, just maybe, my integrity, my 100% fairness, my love for the games, the worlds, and the players, would just set me apart enough so I could still be in charge of a program when I was older even in a world full of other online gaming companies.
Actually I know some great story lines that have yet to be made into bigger games that I believe will be available for a very long time. So maybe if I am not able to buy the rights to other games, I could possibly find a way to get some others developed that are great ideas.
I'd give you examples, but I need to save them in case I am able to actually become what I want to become later in life.
I am full of dreams for the future of gaming, and hope that I am able to make them come true.
Meow meow mew mew, hugs and kisses and love to you!
