Decided to give VG another whirl this week and thought I would post my thoughts for any interested.
I am not a vet by any means, I played for a couple of months about 3 years ago. I liked the game a lot at the time, but couldn't put up with the performance issues I was having.
My system is a 2.7 I5 overclocked to 3.66, 8 gb ram, and a gtx 470, running on win7 64 bit. I have a little 60bg SSD that I installed VG on.
I have to say the game is running great on my setup. No hitching so far and excellent frames running in 1920x1200 with AA and AS on. Have settings fairly high but have shadows to low.
You still see the oddball graphical glitches, but the game is running smooth and it is beautiful.
VG has the best class selection of any MMO out there right now. There are a ton of races and each one has their own starter area, which is something I really miss.
This game is the true spiritual successor to old time EQ1.
Also, the game has the best crafting system I have seen.
Here is the bad.
Pop is low...which is a shame because there is so much group content. Hopefully with f2p on the horizon, this won't be a problem down the road.
There are some weird graphical glitches I hope they iron out before f2p launch.
Anyway those are my thoughts. Anyone thinking about giving it a go or dusting off their account, I encourage you to do so. I dropped the 15 bucks for a month and am glad I did.
