I know this group does not play PC MMO's, but hear me out.
Why do popular MMO's use point and click gameplay, and not immediate events? I know a mouse is a mouse, but online first person shooters allow immediate in-game action and response ( I press "fire" and it fires, regardless of what I'm doing). In light of the new Star Wars MMO game, it's the same BS - point, click, watch an animation. Why can't the combat be a "swing and miss" model or actually aim and shoot, similar to mass effect? Is it a limit of technology or is point and click really that much fun?
