    I haven't played one seriously since Vanguard. I'm getting that urge again. I won't go back to WoW. What else is out there? EQ2?

    I hate MMOs now but for some reason, I just can't bring myself to uninstall WOW. lol

    I don't think there are any good ones left. They all seem so similar to me.

    Eve-online is the only MMO worth my money, the ppl are awesome the teamwork is ^^ and the game just keeps getting better. There is a new gfx upgrade coming in in Nov too and its totally free. All you pay is your ten dollah a month.

    lol. I just created a priest on the server Firetree. Even though WoW is time consuming, it is hard to say no. Game addictions were Halo 2, Halo 3, now WoW. I think I need to admit myself into the Game Addict clinic in Amsterdam.

    yea eve is cool and all but I want something a little constantly interactive. Eve pvp is great, its the rest of the game that bores me. :o

    I've been playing WoW for 2 years, I have a 70 warrior tank in mostly epic gear, and a 70 warlock that just hit 70 the other day. I still love it, not bored with it at all, so much to do it is unbelievable.

    Until you realize it's all the same stuff just painted up to look different.

    I remember playing a game after breaking my WOW addiction and I thought, "Oh yeah, games have stories to them." I had forgotten about this.

    WOW is ok but I like to actually have a life outside of my videogames.

    We are getting avatars soon that can walk around so I suppose it will add for more action.

    Vanguard didn't come out that long ago, and you've already stopped playing? How come you didn't play that long?

    Almost everyone I've heard that has played Vanguard did not play for long.

    Vanguard died in a fire. Game had massive problems. Ran like absolute shit, huge numbers of game breaking bugs, no content past level 40, etc. Vanguard went belly up basically, Sony took control from Sigil, and fired a good portion of the dev team. I hear its a little better now, and I might try it again in a few months.

    This is something they should have done from the start. Traveling 1 hour to a new station only to have it look exactly the same as the one you left was IMO lame. Also, I think they missed a great opportunity for people to get out of their ships and walk around the stations. Planetary landings and shit like that would have been the bomb!! I can't believe they haven't implemented these things.

    I played the Beta and it ran pretty horribly, but my computer wasn't the best.

    I enjoyed crafting in that game on the PvP server, because I'd be crafting, then some guy would kill me in the crafting house, and we'd end up battling, then I'd go back to crafting. It kept things interesting. I have not tried after release though. I was suspicious of the end-game content, but you say there is none. I think I will wait to try it until I hear that it has been improved.

    1. I have played long enough to know what the game is about.

    2. Warcraft has a massive story, thousands of pages worth of story, its not all in-game though.

    3. The assumption that all people who play MMO's have no life's is ridiculous.

    I guess that's what happens when you don't read quest text. :mamoru:

    Hope it won't be full of korean-speaking players though.

    yep, it's all about the phat lewt.....WOOT....let's raid biotches!
    yeah I know...I played them all. I even remember buying the first one, Orcs vs Humans. But come on....games are supposed to have stories. WOW doesn't. Period.
    I never said that but you aren't seriously denying that people spend loads of time online. That dog won't hunt.

    Play WoW cause the wife does.

    The MMO I LOVE is EvE Online. Been playing for like 3 years.

    Last night started getting into buying stock in other corporations. Dropped something like 400 mil on stock with diff companies.

    TreeHunter, let me know how Zu online is, looks very interesting. I love cell-shaded graphics. Looks even cooler in a MMO format.
