Well, I've played EQ, EQ2, SWG, COH/COV, DDO, and beta'ed LotRO and Vanguard, and I'm just finding all of them to be the same game. Some are better at certain aspects, such as the combat system of CoH, but none of them really take any chances or try anything new. I had high hopes for the next generation of MMOs, but my recent beta experiences revealed them to be more of the same.
I've always been curious about UO, being the game that really defined the genre, but I've always been put off by the less sophisticated graphics. Nonetheless, I'd really like to see what the gameplay is like, but I'd like to experiment during a free trial period. The 14-day trial listed on the UO site appears to have expired though. Does anyone know if there's an active trial out there?
Also, how does the community view the game? How has it changed over the years? For you veterans, are you still playing out of habit or because of friends, or do you truly still enjoy the experience? What are the best and worst aspects of the game? What sets it apart from other MMOs?
Thanks in advance for your input!
