To begin with I shall be beta-testing both EQ Next: Landmark and Wildstar from January through April it does appear. Not sure yet whether Wildstar will get my full attention after beta though, but we'll see.
I will still spend some time in World of Warcraft with my dear long-time friends and guildies. I will also continue playing a bit in Rift. However, I do think that Landmark just might keep me rather busy for the larger part of 2014.
It will be some interesting months ahead I'm sure,
All I want is the truthJust gimme some truthJohn Lennon
Dark Souls 2
Ni No Kuni (i know, i'm late on the boat and getting it next week)
Division (if it launches '14)
Heartstone (possibly if i'm not bored of it by then)
And more, when they show up.
WoW for me. Took a long break and now got an itch for a real MMO, was playing DDO a couple of months back since my early Cata break.
Maybe Wildstar at the end of the year if it is received VERY well and after WoW's WoD ages a bit on me. So far initial playing has me feeling deja vu of past "WoW killer" MMOs and grew bored really quick.
ESO....eh. Played the beta and just made me want a sequel to Skyrim in the TES series, not an mmo bastardization.
I'm looking forward to 2014 more for the single player titles like Wastelands 2 and Project Eternity and hopefully Torment: Tides of Numeria than for MMOs.

Hokey religions are no replacement for a good blaster at your side.
None of the new MMOs already announced. I have practically no interest in playing Wildstar, ESO, and other upcoming themeparks. I do not see why they are supposed to be more interesting than the MMOs that are already available in the market. (If someone could explain it to me, I would appreciate it. I simply do not see it.)
Everquest sounds interesting, but I am more into RPGs than constructing (EQL) and adventures or w/e genre it is (EQN).
Games I will be playing:
- Counter Strike Global Offensive (Amazing game which now costs only 5 EUR on steam)
- Diablo III Reaper of Souls
- WoW WoD (Not quite sure about this yet. I really burned myself out on WoW)
- L2 C1
- SC 2 (Considering jumping back again. Not decided yet.)
Most of the games on my to play list are not MMO's. Overall, non MMOs games are simply better in terms of gameplay, graphics and fun. The MMO genre has simply failed to live up to its own hype. It promises much and delivers very little. It's mostly grinding and gear treadmilling with the same tired mechanics we have seen since 1997.
But I will probably try ESO and Wildstar despite my better judgement. But MMOs have become a place to feel alone in a crowd, with everyone just rushing to get to the next level or piece of gear. So, for now I will play Magic the Gathering, Battlefield 4, Dota 2 and a number of indy titles with a few AAA games thrown in.
I'll still be playing Mortal Online, probably also TSW, STO, and Neverwinter as well.
Of the new games, I'll be trying EQN, TESO, Hearthstone, and any sandbox game that come out during the year.
Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.
Mostly games I already own. I never got around to play the Bioshock games and that alone may be enough for my gaming in 2014.
Oh, and some of the better boardgames on tablets (Agricola, Puerto Rico, Ra, Euphrat & Tigris etc.)
I don't see any of the upcoming MMORPG's as something I would be interested in.
We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!(repeat ad infinitum)
I have a feeling 2014 will be a console gaming year for me :S I will probably buy a ps4 and play the division, witcher 3 and gta5. PC games are such a letdown lately. I have always played mmorpg's but the last few years there's just nothing good. Out of all the upcoming mmorpg's nothing seems noteworthy. Well maybe Black Desert ...
All I play atm is DOTA 2 and Path of Exile.

Witcher 3 and The Division will be on PC too
Most likely: The Witcher 3, Dragon Age 3, Starcraft 2. Maybe Thief. Most likely quite a bit Portal 2, maybe a bit of Borderlands 2 - still got to finish some add ons. Probably some more non-mmos, i'm sure i will come across some nice ones, though most will not be new, just never played.
MMOs..well, maybe i'll get back to Guild Wars 2. Didn't play in months. Maybe some more Vindictus, i'd love to see the new bosses etc, even when Nexon will f*ck it up for sure. I don't see me playing any of the new MMOs. EQ:N/LM? Who cares. ESO? I didn't finish any TES game. Just not my type i guess. So TES + your #123789 WoW clone...no reason to play it. The Repopulation does sound more interesting, but first they have to deliver.
Maybe some Minecraft, didn't play it in months, too, and there are quite a lot of new features. I'd like to see a real redstone update - better pistons (extending further mostly), maybe linking blocks so you can make nie looking gates, and not either 3x3 (or whatever size) or using stuff like sand.
I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is highAnd then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'llAmass an army, and we'll harness a hordeAnd then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore
Defiance DLC 3, 4 and 5
Icarus Online (Korean server)
Black Desert (Korean server)
That's all I can think of right now.
DIVINITY ORIGINAL SIN (if it comes out 2014)
My 3 MMOs for 2014 I will play for years after their launch:
1 - Lineage Eternal:
2 - Tree of Savior(the spiritual successor of Ragnarok)
3 - MU Online 2:
Thief in Feb, TESO, South Park, and a few others in the spring.. The Witcher 3.
Maybe: the Division, DA3, Wasteland 2.
Hoping: One of the new Space Sims.

Pathfiinder Online early access and The Witcher 3 definitely. Probably a bunch of other stuff that I kinckstarted that is supposed to come out next year (Shroud of the Avatar/Wasteland 2/Legends of Eisenwald/Meriweather/Divinty:Original Sin)
Maybe Dragon Age 3 if it is more like Dragon Age Origins than Dragon Age 2.
Maybe Elder Scrolls Online if the reviews are positive. Definitely will try ArcheAge if Trion actually gets it out.
Games on the horizon that have a chance of offering something worthwhile to the genre:
Games on the horizon that have NO chance of offering something worthwhile:
Guild Wars 2, maybe Rift, maybe Tera, most likely Lineage 2.
If my financial situation improves I may look into getting FF14, trying TES:O, WildStar, EQ:N/L and maybe even WoW:WoD.
playing Lotro and EQ2 until ESO
After that, Focused on Elder Scrolls Online!
EverQuest Next isn't coming out anytime soon. No way. Q4 2015 at the earliest in my opinion. EverQuest Landmark, however, may release late this year, though. I don't think it will be for everyone, though. Smed stated that EQL Alpha will begin Jan 2014.
2014? I'm hoping to play the US version of ArcheAge. My FPS will come from Titanfall. If those two end up sucking, I'll go back to QuakeLive... again.
