Hi there to all benevolent souls who actually got into this thread to say something!
I've been playing MMOs for some time now, and the good part of it all is that I play with my brother via LAN, which for me has always been fun times. Anyway, City of Heroes/Villains has been our "mainstay" MMO for the last three years. I truly like the game, but we've worn it off to the point of boredom, even when we're being stupid while playing, chatting, or whatever. It was his first MMO, so you know the feeling. I have played other MMOs though, like DAoC and Planetside, by myself. I'm sure he won't like those a lot.
In any case, in our search for a new game, we've tried D&D Online and WoW, and didn't like them too much. They were fine for a couple weeks or three and then they bored us. We're contemplating on buying LOTRO, but it's a tough call. Tough enough as to me being here asking for you guys' opinions and recommendations.
We really like action-styled paces, worlds that aren't too complicated or too tedious to get through and about, and fun PvE (quests that don't feel too generic) and good PvP... everything else is just flavoring, and we'll get to it as long as it's fun (like crafting). Oh, and we hate grinding when it comes in considerable amounts. I mean it's fine for a little while but not all the time.
We got our targets on trying LOTRO or Guild Wars, but we're not too sure. What do you guys think? What games would you recommend? I don't care if it's a free MMO or a pay to play one. We want to keep our hobby a "busy" thing at least until Warhammer Online comes out.
Thanks a lot in advance for your input!
