Bah, I can't decide what game to play! (MMO and FPS discussion)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Well I know there have a been a billion of these posts but let's be honest - we all love to babble about games in here

So here's my situation:

Right now I'm like on the verge (har) of becoming a decent counterstrike player. I'm starting to feel kind of burnt out on the game though so I want to take a bit of a break, maybe stop playing CS obsessively and do something else for a bit.

I think I need an MMO to play because nothing else seems to keep me satisfied game-wise lately. I bought the Unreal anthology and played through that that was fun but yeah, I dunno.

I wish planetside was better because a good MMOFPS would be the **** but since it isn't I guess I'm stuck in either genre. I'd like to have a MMO to play on the side though with my CS.

So umm.... I'm a pvper at heart. Not a ***** PKer who runs around ganking lowbies (however if they show any disrespect I slaughter them with glee ) - I enjoy even fights and duels and such.


The games I'm thinking about right now are DAOC and WoW. I played daoc for a good 3 years back in the day and had a blast, best pvp system to date.

I played WoW for about a year (had two 60's with full blue gear before MC came out, I should have sold my account for like $600 before all the epic bull**** started coming out =/) but I loath raiding so I quit. However, it looks like they're making some changes to the honor system so I might have to reinvestigate!

The game I really want to play is called Darkfall - not sure if many people have heard of it but it's going to be amazing (http://darkfallonline.com/)
It's basically going to be online Oblivion (has skill based leveling instead of level-based) with totally open PvP, from a first person perspective. You will have to manually aim spells and sword attacks/blocks and such.

However, Darkfall is taking forever to come out and waiting is killing me hah. Been following the game for a year now, and apparently it's been in development for like 4 years =/ They don't even have a date set for the beta (the rumor is dec 2007, ugh!). So... I want something to play in the meantime.

I tried out CoH and CoV for a bit too but left because of the lack of PvP.

**** I dunno, I just enjoy a good MMO but there seems to be a lack of them currently =X Or at least none that seem like my style. Any advice would be great

Cheers!
- Pete


ps: what part of the alphabet would look like if Q and R were eliminated.

pps: I just started a polyphasic sleep schedule so I'm awake for 20 hours a day now, and it gets boring at 5am when nobody is around lol, that's another reason I need a good game to play.

Well I know this is quite old but hehe I am a verified legend on Dungeon Siege Legends of Aranna, I found it to be quite nice to be able to edit chars, and be the best at PVP..ask around about Mr_Torch on there hehe, I ran the most successful clan as well as the baddest..allthough I do give my respects to a couple of other clans like LSD and also MMC..which I was co- leader in after I proved my worthwhileness (hehe custom word there lol) I don't care for the new Dungeon Siege at all...

mmm. I'm not sure I'd want to jump into such a dated game. I would consider going back to daoc because I played it so long, have a bunch of max characters and such. However with both games I'm sure there's the problem of a dying population or at least a declining one (stupid WoW lol, it's like the microsoft of the MMO world, crushing all its competition ).

Read this darkfall article and it may make you **** your pants:
http://rpgvault.ign.com/articles/736/736911p1.html

If only DnL wasn't such a failure


fade2green: I'm looking for a MMO really, playing single player games for a long time makes me feel kind of like a hermit hehe. With MMOs at least I'm interacting with people and such I also just don't really feel the drive to make my character the best it can be in a single player RPG cause it's like okay, I'm uber... now what?

Which reminds me, I should finish FFX... I maxed out my starting party's sphere grids but never beat the final boss :-p I did the same thing with oblivion, I maxed out all my skills and stats, did all the guilds, but then I got bored and never completed the main story hah.

So yeah... single player RPGs are entertaining for a bit but not really something I like to play long-term.

Play on a pvp server. WoW is way too carebear for me sorry, but EQ2 on pvp servers is alot better then WoW on pvp servers. Also the pvp system on EQ2 is alot better then WoW in my opinion with rankings and the point of pvping in general.


Btw, there is a eq2 thread that is going on atm I think it is the 10 or 15th post down in pc games

The only reason I havent tried EQ2 is b/c all the expansions confuse the crap out of me. What exactly do I buy, when do I install them. How come there are so many EQ2 editions in the stores lol..

yes, its all about as confusing as that parapgraph I just wrote.
