Hi guys, been a long time "lurker" here at the MMORPG forums and just recently registed. I am looking for some advice on a new game to play. I have looked at many of the MMOs listed and reviewed on this site and I just can't seem to find anything that grabs me. Perhaps I overlooked some games on accident, or perhaps I am asking too much, but I can't seem to find anything that looks good to me. Basically I am tired of the gear treadmill/linear/quest hub type games and am looking for something with some depth. I enjoy PvE and PvP just about equally.
A little background:
I have been playing MMOs since SWG launch day (10 years?) and have played/tried quite a few since then and now. I currently own:
GW2- Played 4 weeks (started at launch), got max level, and quit. I logged back in last week hoping to have it suck me in but alas, I played about 10 minutes and said eff it.
WoW- Currently subbed, play a couple times a week. I usually log in and do the raid finder thing and maybe some dailies (all my friends/guildies quit some time ago). Can't say I have a ton of fun, but it is better than nothing at the moment (at least there is end game stuff to do, although it becomes boring fast IMO).
SWTOR- Ugh...I played for a couple months when it released and then quit once I realized how terribly shallow it is. Had high hopes for this one (as others did I am sure) but I find this game terrible. How the hell do they design a "rpg" where you can't sit in cantina seats? I didn't expect SWG2 but come on. Anyways...
I perfer a sandbox style over themepark, mix is fine too but I am not interested in anything "WoW-like" (I could just play WoW). Nothing wrong with it, but I am just sick of it personally. Out of all the games I have played, I miss the depth of SWG the most. I am really looking for a game that has great crafting, exploring, less hand-holding, housing, player driven economy and cities, etc (depth, basically). Maybe these types of games don't exist anymore because i certainly cannot find one. I have been told EVE has some of these qualities but I am not really into the whole spaceship thing so much. I don't really care if it is a AAA or indie title, I only care that it has some of the qualities I listed and that the gameplay is not awful. Anyone got any ideas, or am I asking for something that does not exsist? Thanks ahead of time!
