Boom! Let the devil.gif begin! lol

Pfft. WoW is like cotton candy when what I really want is a steak. It tastes great for all of 5 seconds, then it's gone. I prefer something I can sink my teeth into. To each their own, I suppose.

Rift is worth checking out. It's *very* much like WoW from a user interface and game mechanics standpoint, but it puts WoW to shame visually (really, it's not even close) and things like battling to close spontaneous planar rifts provides a more dynamic experience. It's also F2P now.

I still go back to EQ every now and again. One of things that made it great (requiring large raid forces often with specific class requirements) also just happens to be what largely caused it to wither on the vine, as the player base dwindled over the years. They've done a lot to alleviate that these days, and it's very playable again. The graphics are pretty dated, but they have still done class design/identity way better than anyone else, IMO. It's also F2P these days.

Guild Wars 2 also looks like it has some potential. I've not put in enough time with it yet to have a good feel for it, though. F2P as well.

Now, if you're a real masochist and want a sci-fi MMORPG with a lot of depth (read: learning curve) and a dynamic, player-driven world, then EVE Online is the game for you.

Hope you find something that appeals to you.

Rift looks really good but it's only FTP for the first 20 levels, after that it's $15/month + about $40 for the game. :/

Rift is a dried out old piece of steak that died long ago. I can't believe you compare Rift to WOW. There is no comparison, WOW simply blows Rift away. You are looking at the graphics WOW produced years ago. When it comes to MMORG, nobody makes better graphics, story, or game play than WOW.
What a joke!

ok so Ive played and Beta tested nearly every MMO out there.

Recently my wife bought me all the WoW games so that we could play characters together (she played for 6 or 7 years maybe)

I can honestly say that after playing up til lvl 86, that this is the most boring.. pointless.. Waste of time that I have ever been involved with.

the only reason I can even handle playing it is cus Im playing with my wife, but we have not played in a month because this trash is just so incredibly boring I want to hurt myself and those around me...

Personally, i do not like questing, but I can deal with it since i basically mindlessly follow my wife.. but forget it, the dungeons all suck, so incredibly boring!!!

Hell the only thing I have found enjoyable is the pet battle system, because PvP is a supreme Joke.

The game is like completely baby mode, too easy, boss mechanics even easier.


I kind of like the settings and characters and the world, but that's Mostly due to the fact that Blizzard took almost everything from teh Warhammer world, and made it their own.

and with that being said, to this day I have more fun playing Warhammer Online, lvl capped to lvl 10, than i have had since November when we started playing wow.


.

SWTOR was more enjoyable

DAOC had Superb PvP

Warhammer Online had a great balance of PvE and PvP (really too bad that game ended up sinking)


unfortunately there really isn't much else out there that is truly good.

You win. Now keep telling everyone, because I got bored of repeating myself half a decade ago.
