this is what i do. i look for different interesting games and play them when i'm bored of another. my current drug of choice doesn't really include a MMO tho they are all online based.. if you like diablo type games. then try path of exile. that's pretty fun. tho it's more of a online solo game.
if you enjoy shooters, i would recommend ghost recon online. that game is much more focused on teamplay so you may enjoy that aspect of it (most people play it like a regular shooter, but the good players tend to group up and just pwn people who do not team up.
i've always been a big mechwarrior fan so tried it alittle. but of the few games i did play, it seems pretty fun and shows alot of potential.
a single player game i've been playing lately is crusader kings 2. it's pretty addictive, but gets tedious after your empire gets large. i'm starting to understand why some of the historical kings were tyrants
another game i've been keeping my eyes out for is end of nations. the vids look pretty cool. so might try that out. takes me back to old school command and conquer days
I guess i'm at a phase where i'm slowly growing out of MMO's. there just aren't any on the market that really stands out. I thought SWTOR was going to be the thing... but like you said, there are just too much corporate bull to keep me playing. didn't realy help their cause that they totally ruined dragon age 2 and botched the mass effect 3 story...
I guess there's really only 1 studio left that has become the last hope. I really hope Bethesda doesn't cash in on their good will and turn into another bioware/blizzard.... who knows, maybe eventually CD Projekt would evolve into something of those caliber but the studio is still relatively young and poor.
