I hate to say it but No Other Game Is Like Ark Cod and Battlefield, WOW and games like that people play can confer player feedback over many years until a game is balanced and well coded' by that time they bring out a new game to spice things up but..
ARK's biggest battle is it is so unique, and heavily coded in soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many ways!! for eg.. It has gun fights, air fights, ground fights' water fights, boss fights, weapon varients, dino types, stats, varients, breeding, taming, kibbles, building! decaying! multiple maps, consistent 70 players all with thier own players, colour bases weapons dino's then you get the wild dino's with stats, including AI! and physics, berries, bushes, despawing, re-spawning area's new players joining, transfers in and out'
ARK is a game WAY ahead of its time, it is a complete overhaul of idea's and what if's and continues to grow...
in my opinion - HTF did they manage it even this far?? With abit more experience and feedback, a few more balances and server upgrades ARK could be a game that will go on for centuries..
Ya know what lets ARK down? Modern computers and tech.. its to primitive for this beast' Im glad I got a go on it now rather than 50 years time when computers can handle her
