Have either recently given up on a game you have played for a long time or have been let down by one of the more recent POS games that have been released, AC2 SWG, and are now just wating and hoping that one of the near future games wont be one big pile of horse dung to throw in with the rest of your 4 year old games.

    I am in the same boat....I must admit that I am putting alot onto Horizons.

    I played Lin 2 beta, and it is the same old thing.  What the online gaming world need is a new "ultima online" and by that I mean that when UO came out, it was revolutionary (sp???).  I am hoping that HZ is that.

    I am in the same boat. I am also too poor to afford a new computer to play the new games coming out. 

    What makes Horizons different? Sounds like the same old PvE approach which is exactly what I don't want.

    Ya, I did the same thing... I had left EQ after 3-4 years (wow was that tough!!!) and went back to UO for the simple reason that I didnt have enough time for a time consuming game like EQ (mega-time consuming when your guild is fighting for high ranking spots and flags) But UO is just a filler they changed it more than I like. I'm waiting for EQ2 or perhaps WoW, guildwars and FFXI but since you guys mentioned Horizens I'm gonna go check that out now :)

    I started with EQ...played that for about a year then moved on to the other mmorpgs as they came out.  I stuck with DAoC most recently...still playing it...about a year now.  I tried out SWG, and although I liked it I wont play it because it costs to much to play.  Besides I like Fantasy more than sci-fi.  Horizons really has my interest at the moment.  Before it was Dragon Empires, but Horizons sounds way cooler than DE to me.  Hopefully it will be the next UO.  It's about time the MMORPG genre experienced something completely new.  The EQ-started formula is getting old.

    I have given up on a game i loved for many years.Reason is the business side,the developer and suits changed it big time,turned it into what i despise from gaming and that is ANYTHING or any game design that looks like Blizzard made it or comes from KR.

    As of this very minute,there is not one single developer or mmorpg game that i want to play and support,they are all selling us crap or abusing us as fans.

    What i have seen of recent from Blizzard/Hearthstone tops the cake but sadly it is a popular brand business that supports esport and $$$ so no matter how corrupt how flagrant the greed,it will still thrive.

    When i see a mmorpg developer doing things right,proper,with effort and passion,i will be the first to jump in and congratulate them but for now i see greedy scum trying to sell us half ass effort or simply asking for free handouts.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    I'm waiting on Twin Saga to kill time till legion since I still have PTSD from garrisons. Adding a micro-management sim that makes money effortlessly is the best and worst idea Blizzard has came up with since the Diablo II expansion

    Left Lineage 2 about a year ago after 10 years of playing. Have not found anything even close to that experience and do not see anything coming out in the future that can give me what I got out of that game. 

    Lineage 3 where are you?  :(

    Bless just may scratch that itch. Not as involved as Lineage but the PvP is still awesome. Castle Sieges are amazing! Some even underwater. The PvE dungeons and group play is awesome as well.

    Never was I so disappointed than when I  gave up on The Secret World and I feel like       I've just seemingly lost Interest since then:
    Great storylines
    Great character building
    Everything that I thought that I had been looking for in an MMO. It's an age thing and Recreating those early years of WoW that followed by sub-par simulacrums burned me out.

    Despite really wanting to like it enough to keep invested and to stay active in the game Investing time into another thing that wasn't a dead cert was too much of a gamble. If a dev Creates a new game with that type of early nostalgia built into it then I'd be ok with the mess Kinder words have never been said by me than while commenting on TSW

    @Nyctelios Like what?
    I don't know you so I can't talk about taste. But technically speaking there are great mmos on the market if you seek a certain focus on entertainment.

    Most people fail to find what they call a good mmorpg because when someone shows them something good they say but the graphics aren't PS4 or it's not action combat or any other single feature that they don't like ignoring the rest of great things that game can offer.

    There is not a perfect game because the perfect game lives on your mind and you are not an Eldritch Horror Elder Outer God like me to be able to play on your own pocket reality, sadly.

    I think EvE worth the money they ask and the time you put on it. I actually dislike the game after CCP took measures to ensure mid 40's/late 30's bored fat multi account goons would have fun regardless of any other type of player but it doesn't mean the game is bad - there is a difference between my taste and the actual quality of something.

    In other hand I think games like FF14 worth my money because I really really like their approach to the genre. And I would love if I could sacrifice some of my minions to bring LoTRO to it's golden days.

    And if everything else fails there is always World of Warcraft, which in the same case as EvE I disliked after a certain content, but it has a standard, you can expect a quality seal on what they deliver. You'll have a good time.

    If we would go away from mmorpg genre I would keep talking endlessly (you know, since I'm an Elder God and time is irrelevant to me, but you would die eventually or become insane, so, yeah).

    Wow, before @blueturtle13 posted, I thought this was a modern post (was a little confused by what games they were mentioning, though). It doesn't give me a lot of faith in the genre if we're still having the same problems 13 years later.

    Every time I see this I'm shocked.  Best of luck to you.
