Literally, I have been interested in playing some various MMO's but I am too weirded out to try them out. Aside from the fact I dont want to throw money in the pit of no return because I'm not made of it. I am going to list the games that I have an interest in playing, granted I have already tried them but I want to know what they are like current day because after playing EQ up until Gates of Discord I know how much a expansion can turn a MMO around. I dont find anything bad about them when I am researching, but I just have that funny feeling to keep away you know?
Asheron's Call - I have always been very interested in playing this game, I tried it at a friends house for about an hour and didnt really get any idea on how to play but I enjoy the graphics. I'm not too worried about subscriber numbers but the only thing that holds me back from this game is that I am scared it will be shut down soon just as Asheron's Call was. Shadowbane I believe had close to the same amount of subscribers before it went F2P and that got shut down. I'd like to know this games current stability, I mean I want to play it for atleast two or three years straight if I get started.
Ultima Online - This is pretty much the first MMO I have played, I played it for about half a year and still was just blown away on how to play it. The biggest issue I had with this game is when I went adventuring into random forests and mountains I would have to walk through a forest and mountain of housing buildings. I would like to know if this is even worth going back to, not by today's standards but by yesterday's standards before all of these mainstream games.
Saga of Ryzom - More of a curiosity than anything, I havent tried this game but from what I can tell it is basically an editor. I guess its the purest form of a sandbox game in my current opinion. It would be nice to know anything about this game's current stability and features that would make it playable for the long term.
