In a nutshell, was a hardcore old school crpg player (and old enough to have played through the Gold Box series) but got into MMO’s very late. First MMO was LOTRO, primarily due to my interest in the source literature. Was happy with that for about 3 years, but game changes orchestrated by Turbine led me to lose interest and ultimately stop playing. Went outside the fantasy realm for my next MMO, Fallen Earth, and played that for about a year. Ultimately, my interest waned as end game looked to be heading down the road to only PvP stuff, something I’m not particularly interested in.
Been playing Rift now since launch. Still fun and Trion really seems to be working to keep content coming, but I generally get a sense that I’m just spinning my wheels with it at this point. Basically, I’d like to find something else to waste some time on, perhaps just long enough for Guild Wars 2 to come out, but maybe longer. Would the 500lb gorila, WoW, be one to consider or is it much too late in the game for that? Also considering The Secret World, but since I’m looking to get into something new soon, not sure if I want to pick up a game that has just launched. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks.
I knew I should have taken that left turn at Albuquerque...
