I can't believe I have neglected to try out Wurm for so long. Ever since UO went down the tubes I've been looking for another sandbox game to get lost in.
Created my account yesterday and I have to admit, this is it. The graphics are superb, I don't mind the non-animations at all, in fact, I like that better.
The fact that I get to do what I want, and run all the risks I want and not have to follow a bunch of linear quest lines that are absolutely pointless, makes me happy.
All the invisible walls from other games do not exist here, you can adventure out and do whatever you want and all the while, you need to keep yourself alive.
And I'm just playing the free version!
I'm totally subscribing to this game, the cost is nothing compared to the 3 - 5 crappy MMO's I usually have installed.
Anyway, for those of you thinking about checking it out but are turned off by the graphics you see on youtube or whatever, forget about all that. Graphics are pretty but solid game design is what keeps you playing, not graphics.
Lastly, this is the first game in many years that has me excited and salivating all day about it, hell, i'm more excited to get my farm up and running and tend to my crops.
Most people won't like this though, for all the reasons I like it, probably.
One of hte best features in the game is the lack of a map, quest indicators, and all that extra crap that you find in other games that just make it boring.
I think WURM is a game for intellegent and driven people who like a lot of risk with their game.
