How important is the story/lore in an MMO?

    SWTOR the sith warrior story is the last time I remember actually being very interested in what was going on. I couldn't wait to get to the next part to see what happened. As much as I didn't like large parts of that game. The story in it was a 10/10 for me.

    I have to agree.  And I usually don't hold much hope for the story being worth a hill of beans.. the problem with SWTOR was that the gameplay was bland.  Not many companies receive unanimous praise for creating both a vibrant story and tight gameplay under a single MMORPG.

    I like to play MMO with nice story line, it keep me excited to see the rest.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Story is like great costumes in a movie. Ya want them but its not why you went to see the movie. Better have a good one but everything comes second to combat and content quality. Games like SWToR missed that.
