you must be new to this site
Wait, has bujko found actual gameplay on the game that no one but TTH and MMORPG have seen? If I'm correct everyone but these two media sources are completely in the dark about the game as of right now.
Massively has also seen it.
OP: one word, nostalgia.

Can not agree more. Lot of us older gamers played EQ 1 for lots of years. I for one have never gotten that feeling back in any other game, and EQ1 is just way to dated to play. So we all have the hope we can find that again.

For me the biggest hype is the unknown. I think, and hope the game is a PvE centric sandbox (the first of its kind) and I hope it has action combat. Basically I hope it has some of the elements that made old school MMO's engaging and fun with modern quality of life improvements found in current MMO's.
ArchAge is not on my follow list because it is Asian in style and more importantly it features FFA PvP and boring WoW style tab target combat.
Black Desert, what little bit I do know (granted it isn't much) is it also features FFA PvP.
There are 3 elements that automatically turn me off of a game:
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
I mean it's where the core MMO population started. Prior there were basement dwellers, afterwards there were rollface kiddies. EQ is the epitome of MMORPG to people. Even people that didn't play it.
Sure they may not get it like those of use trading at the tunnel do.
But if you shout "Train to Zone!" or "FIPPY NOOO!" people get it.
Any EQ title will have this inheritance that's hard to deny.
I'm hoping it's more awesome than I could ever hope for. Realistically it'll be a SOE title that underperforms thanks to it's overpromise. It'll probably be technically great anyway, and I'm looking forward to it regardless.
We as MMORPG players / fans need another watershed moment, and with all of the failed hops into next-gen territory for the last 8 years; this could be it.
Now that's HYPE, but it's also why it's there.
