While you are waiting for games like FFXIV, Cataclysm, GW2 and SWTOR what are you currently playing?
I am playing CS on some admin abuse war3 mod server and screwed myself buying Starcraft 2. The greatness of Starcraft for me was the ability to have fun in public channels and be part of clans.
From single players I can't find anything "innovative". It's more of the same formula with better graphics. I guess this is the endgame for someone who spent 19 years gaming. I remember when I was 6 year old playing anything that was released. Other MMORPG's I am still considering are EVE and EQ2, maeby Aion 2.0 since I got lvl 46 and it's free expansion.
EQ2 - I heard it has the MOST content + housing and on top I can try the extended for free so I am strongly considering it. The downside is that the game is old and low populated I assume. Is it worth investing in it now when big titles coming in near future? I also have no idea how enjoyable and rich the endgame content is so I would appreciate if I get info on that.
EVE - 50k players online, one server. It has polished design and tons of updates, expansions and great graphics. On the other hand I just don't see how I can have fun in another 5+ year MMORPG where every day millions of isks are added in the economy from NPC's that inflate it and it seems the game is all about the economy. I say no thx to farming (repeating combat missions all day). The skill system also discouraging the new player from trying to catch up.
Aion 2.0 - It will have even more awesome graphics and it has already one of the most enjoyable combat I've experienced since WOW, but I just see it as another asian grinder with lack of content. The endgame is focused on PvP, farming and repeat since they raise the level cap after a year. I rather play a FPS'er or SC2. It will spare me from the grind and $15 sub.
Is it really this bad or it is just me? Is WOW: Cataclysm seriosly the only option on the table for a veteran MMORPG player? Am I missing something out from the games I mentioned above? Maeby I am also lacking info on rest of the MMORPG's which failed to capture my attention?
