I've been away from MMOs, and this site for the most part, for 7 months. Now that I have enough time on my hands I am desperate for a good MMO to play. Not that I haven't been desperate for a good one for a loooooong time. Maybe I'm just an addict.
Anyways, there are a few requirements I have. If you can think of a game that meets them please do tell. Minimal instances. Nothing ruins the feeling of immersion as being sucked into a world where only 5 people exist to accomplish a linear goal. Also there should be good PVE. If I can run around killing everything in sight for 10 minutes straight then I am just slightly over powered. There should be teamwork involved. Healers should't deal large amounts of damage and people dealing large amounts of damage shouldn't be taking hits. Being dependent is key. P2P. F2P is junk, even if it is the wave of the future. Death penalty. Failing has consequences. Who cares if you have to spend a little to repair your armor. Restricted insta travel.
I don't care about how it looks or if it has PVP or not or how much "character customization" (which has no consequences) it has. Story since it has been done very well in some games(FFXI, Everquest) and terribly in others (like WoW, SWTOR, TSW).
I see a lot of talk about ESO. I'm also curious about Darkfall Unholy Wars. Don't have a clue what else is out there.
