I have not played an MMO in a bit. I was thinking about picking one up again. Here is what I would prefer.
Good character building (not appearance, actual meaningful choices in how your character plays ). More in depth the better.
WASD movement (has to have it).
I would prefer tab target to action. There are enough lobby games that have action combat.
Defined roles (read as has to have a healing class).
The most important aspect has to be grouping. I would prefer a game where I can get in groups and do dungeons/instances content together.
PVP is not important to me.
I have tried just about all of the games that have released in the past two years. I did not like ESO.
I make this post about every 8-12 months and usually end up disappointed with what is out there. I think My favorite MMOs were Vanguard (closed) and WoW (might try classic when it comes out). SWTOR, has had no meaningful updates and I have beaten all of the story lines enough that I don't feel like playing it any more. I liked Rift, but don't know if I really want to go back to it.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
