Hey everyone, I just registered, and I figured if I'm looking for a new game to play, I'd ask for suggestions here. First of all though, there's a few things I'd like to list that I'm *not* looking for.
The biggest thing I'm trying to avoid is any game with a WoW style battle engine(such as LotRO, Warhammer, and of course WoW). I might as get that out of the way first, because I truly hate the battle systems in those games. There's just no feeling of power in the way the characters hit each other..no "impact". It's tough to describe this if you don't know what I'm talking about, but you just don't get any sense of doing damage to your opponent. No matter how cool your weapon looks, when you hit something it's like you're swinging a wet towel, you just continue through the animation with no delay as if you aren't hitting anything. The best example of a style of battle system I'm looking for is something like Final Fantasy XI, which had some cool animations and effects for weapons and abilities, but I played the crap out of that a couple of years ago so I don't want to go back to it.
Secondly, I'd like to steer away from any games where the classes are completely out of balance, like Warhammer. While I admit I had fun with that one for a little while, the more you play, the more you realize how big the discrepancy is between classes.
Finally, I don't like the micro-transaction idea for mmo's, I'd just prefer a straight monthly fee, where everyone is on even ground.
I realize I'm probably being a bit picky, lol. Still, I was hoping some people here could give me a few suggestions. Thanks! ^^
