LF Game that has it all

rabalaisrabalais Member Posts: 19

I know, it sounds like a joke.  I spent 3 years playing Final Fantasy XI then another 4 or so playing WoW.  WoW is by far the most complete game that I have seen, but once you hit max level there is an element that is missing.  Sure I could farm mats and craft and do dailies, but that gets pretty old if you do it everyday.

I am a pretty casual gamer.  I actually work 50+ hours a week and spend time with my wife and kid.  I enjoy the convience of being able to hop on a game and be able to do something without having a group, but is also productive and beneficial.  People told me that RIFT was WoW on roids, tried it, dropping it after 2 weeks.

I tried some free-to-play stuff, and while some of them seem cool, I am against paying $10 a month to unlock new content and gear.  If I wanted that, I would stick to the monthly subscription games.

So this is kindof what I am looking for:

(1) A newer game

(2) Good active community

(3) Free-low monthly subscription

(4) Good UI and graphics

(5) Something that benefits guilds, such as housing etc

(6) A productive economy (Auction House, trade windows, etc etc)

(7) A game that I can play minutes or hours without feeling guilty when i log off

(8) A game that will make me want to come back.

I hope I am not asking for a lot.  If someone has an opinion on a game that I could try that wouldnt break the bank or would be worth my while, please PM me.  I am not sure if I can check this at work, and reading from the iPhone is not ideal. 

Thanks for your time and happy gaming!

    Your (3) and (6) hardly come along with (4) also (7) and (8) are too personal too evaluate.


    Just look into newerest p2p games and see which one attracts you :)

    Doesn't fit into 7 at high-mid levels. When dungeons start to be harder and requires grouping.

    sadly no,

    why should it be another MMO? you can buy your time with single player, or take a break, travel, etc

    believe me, taking break from MMO is not a bad thing :D

    So What Now?
