When I'm not searching for a game that can come close to SWG as far as options and content (nothing out now can touch it) I've been game jumping trying to get "the feeling" again.
I tried to go back to WOW again only to find that it's no longer an MMORPG, it's a dungeon crawler with 0 immersion and meaning.
Skyrim held my interest for a spell but eventually my Sith Lord summoner (the first Sith lord in history btw) lost his connection to the force and I lost my connection to Skyrim.
I tried to go back to Vanguard but felt alone and abandoned.
I tried to play D3 just to get a gaming fix but after 2 play throughs my Monk (named Teraskasi) is no TKM at all so I said goodbye to him.
FInally I ended up in EVE. It has the potential, and if WIS ever gets finished (and if it resembles the SWG cantina experience) I see it as the place most of the SWG players would end up.
Through my game roaming I learned a few things. I learned that no matter what the game I play I tend to pretend it's Star Wars related and make the characters that I had in SWG.
I learned that after 10 years a MMO where you can sit is almost non existent which is both sad and pathetic. De-evolution is the only word that can describe this lost genre. When something strays to far from it's soul it becomes lost. MMOs went from worlds to live in to dungeon crawlers to gear in then move on. Devs claim the consumers have no loyalty, give us a reason to get emotionally invested in your game and you will retain us.
It's beyond frustrating that a 9 year old game had more depth, content, and variety than anything in the last 9 years. In the end I'm still floating out in space waiting for "the one" to get emotionally invested in an MMO again.
So SWG vets, where are you now?
