    Your love for WoW only hurts your search for a long lasting game. The themeparks today are designed to be consumed in a month or two while browsing the cash shop. It seems the more long lasting the design is, the less AAA it becomes. A sad trend you'd think would be vice versa.

    Snowboard kids for N64.  Been playing it for almost 20 years and it's still fun.  Just make sure you drink on the ski lift.

    If you like WOW then I would suggest you try ASTA
    I can second this.

    I've played WoW for years and I'm in Legion's alpha but I can't stop playing ESO long enough to be a good tester. =) 

    Elder Scrolls Online has greatly improved since its beta days and poor launch. Is it bug free yet? Nah...might not ever be, but it's a wonderful, vast and complex game that's easy to get into. With the Thieves' Guild mini-expansion, I subbed and for the next six months, it'll be my MMO home. I don't think I'll run out of things to do.

    Other suggestions might be Everquest 2, Diablo 3, The Secret World, Hearthstone, and Stardew Village, which I haven't started playing yet but hear terrific reviews from friends.

    Also a game I tried recently that felt like it had promise is Skyforge. Project Gorgon looked interesting for an old school feel. Grim Dawn is a great ARPG. Archeage was pretty but I just can't bear PvP-centric games. ESO at least has plenty of PvE despite that big turf war in the middle of the map.

    All around, the excellent graphics of ESO plus crafting, gathering, fishing, exploring, questing, achievement hunting, dabbling in trade economy and a really good-natured community overall makes me eager to log in and see where the next few years take the MMO. Especially looking forward to the upcoming housing.

    Good luck finding your game or games of choice!

    I recommend Perfect World International. You can try mystic class which includes a lot of multitasking in dungeons, you can end up as tank, damage dealer or healer, also have to control pets and plant flowers on the way. Or try assassin, which is weakest class at the start and survival might be challenging, but it is most strongest class in end game. It is very long term game. While others scream it is pay 2 win game, theres plenty of players who have acquired end-game items without spending a cent. Tradeable item-mall currency helps if you are not into spending real life money, but still want items from item-mall. The developers haven't given up and we get new expansions, one coming soon - housing, new weapons, new instance, new quests. They also have changed some dungeons, to make them more challenging. If you don't spend money to get everything now, then you definately will have stuff to do, items to farm even after 2 years of playing. This game have kept my attention for over 7 years and i still can't find anything better.

    Get Guild Wars 2. As a solo person its great. No ninja looting, as everyone gets their own loot and mats are all for everyone, so noone steals that either. And it has a fun story!

    Like you I tried ESO in the beta, was not impressed at all. Didn't touch it again until a month or so ago and was happily surprised. They seem to have changed quite a lot, can't give you any specifics since, like I said, only played beta before but it sure is fun now. 

    If you can find it for a reasonable sum try it out.

    Yep, it wasn't a fit for OP's previous thread (back then there was "bright, cartoony animation style" on the list too), but since it seems post-Wildstar he dropped that requirement ( :wink: ) LotRO could be a nice fit.

    Especially since

    [...]fun mini-games (I LOVED Mabinogi's music system, for example [...] 
    If that's the case, you definitely should try LotRO, it has a much better one - and without any of those BS Mabinogi has with leveling, grinding, skill points, scrolls, etc. etc,
    In LotRO you just play the music, simple as that (don't need to get out of the tutorial even, but it's suggested though, if you want to play with / for a larger population :wink: tutorial is a separate instance).
    Also - but it's up to personal taste - I think .abc is better than MML.

    edit: lol, my bad... you need to leave the tutorial, since even minis start with the sword, and inside there are no bards to buy instruments (just quickly hopped in before the maintenance and checked on a character I have only to reserve the name - I know, /boo, name stealer, etc.  sue me :wink: ). So you need to spend maybe 20-30 minutes after the character creation and get to level 5. Then you have the music system at your leisure.
