As per tile, just wondering smile

Personally.. love them in 'theory', but practice-wise? Suffice it to say i haven't felt invested in one since the days of Vanguard. Personal favourites would be VGSoH as mentioned, early EQ2 (before WoWification), SWG prominently (no, not swtor) and pre-mounted combat Lotro, albeit with reservations.

After years and years of ..fuck all really.. i can at least now say i have titles to look forward to! smile
Namely three: Project Gorgon, Pantheon Rise of the Fallen and maaaaybe Shroud of the Avatar (too much RMT, too many ego-centric whales needing games of all things to feel better about themselves)

How about you? smile

I'm not normally into MMOs, but I love playing Star Wars - The Old Republic.

The factions and the "eternal war" setting drove me away from that.
Apart from that, I loved SWTOR for a long time.

City of Heroes was my first and stopped before City of Villians showed up
World of Warcraft since vanilla, pick up each expansion and play a bit - still have my vanilla toon also Gnome mut rogue elixir master
Starwars the Old Republic - Rattataki Inquisitor
Guildwars 2 - tree lady Mesmer
Elderscrolls online - Khajiit nightblade
Final Fantasy 14 - Roegadyn Monk

Besides those I've dabbled in hundreds of freebe mmos tried ddo, champions, startrek, and a bunch of others. They generally don't hold my attention like they used to.

I've played GW2, DDO, LOTRO extensively and dipped into several more. I spent a lot of time and energy playing Black Desert Online (BDO) for quite a few years. Not been on recently, but I have invested too much time (and quite a bit of cash in the 'Buy New Outfits' or 'Decorate Your Home' shops) to abandon them completely.

Played a ton of WoW and City of Heroes (even the new server that’s up now). Played a bunch of others but not for long.

None have captured my interest since WoW and CoH. I RPed a lot and really that’s what kept me in those games. MMOs are in a rut. Someone needs to come up with a better system. The usual WoW like grind and leveling is old and not very interesting.

For some reason i cannot get into most of mmos or even rpgs in general, opening up the skill tree and seeing hundereds of skills and traits and which one to choose just confuses the hell out of me. Having said that I really liked playing Lord of the Rings Online, mostly because its the only mmo you can re-live the middle-earth experience. The visuals really shows its age but i liked the gameplay a lot, and the community is extremely friendly too, at least the ones i have encountered.

Ya, forgot about BDO, did play that game for several years also. There crafting system is pretty amazing, along with the node gathering system.

A few additional ones I forgot about was Wildstar, Blade & Soul, and Warhammer Online.

World of Warcraft MMO tried when was open BETA but problem I had old desktop computer so postoned playing it.

Neverwinter Nights 1 persistent servers but they were not good due to bad system GM and administrators I give this expereince
vote 5/10.

When I had eventually new computer after WOW BETA tried actually this with my brother:
Well here is my history of MMO:S
Age of CONAN MMO
+ Nudity women very rarely you could see boobs from women super rarely.
+ Brutal
+ Interesting PvP and PvE
+ Ok graphics and music.
- bugs at released.
- sub fee
- The developers did not keep their promises. They had said that
there example wiill be raids of smart PVE enemies that will attack cities and villages.
When at release they said sorry not yet done with that but later we try add it...
- I played this 6 months roughly then my brother convinced we should try WOW MMO since it was by now polshed and no bugs.
My vote of this experience: 7.25/10

World of Warcraft MMO that I played over 3 years!
+ When I started playing with my brother the expanison Wrath of Lichking was not yet released... however it was slow to rise
in levels and during that before we got to max level the second expansion and best WOW expansion in popularity
WRATH of LICHKING was released.
+ YES WOW graphics is a bit cartoon true but I think WOW art is very cool even my brother liked the graphics.
+ PvP was nice I played in Battlegrounds sometimes PvP.
+ Pve was nice and RAIDS were truly good.
+ Immersion no fast map travel or LOAD when enter new are you could play hours for WOW and forget real world.
+ Polished no bugs.
+ I got to experience WRATH OF LICHKING RAIDS when it was the newest expansion and byt then WOW got to its record
over 12 million active players this despite ONLY PC and not support XBOX or Playstation!
+ The expansion Cataclysm was fairly ok though less popular then WRATH OF LICHKING.
Neutral: Wow story is good but quite short trailers...
- Grind and due to this my brother quite WOW MMO even before one year played. I continued to play WOW after my brother quit it.
- I played to much it got tiremsome reduced from 60 hour/week to 40 hours/week but still tiresome...
- Finally I got bored and but the main reason I quit also for annoying PANDA exapansion! Every expansion before Panda exapansion
was cool! Well then they decide to relaese some silly PANDA expansion! I quit!
- Subfee and expansions cost money.
- TIME SINK
My vote of this experience: 9/10
I have also seen World of Warcraft movie that I rate 8/10.

After WOW MMO some years break until I started playing Neverwinter MMO. My brother did not like the graphics
of Nevewinter MMO but a friend of mine played Neverwinter MMO with me.

Neverwinter MMO played in BETA and then played over a year it when released
+ You can play it totally for free.
I did and still got the best mount available when I played. I have not payed a single euro for this.
+ Action combat worked well. You do not need super reactions if you are normal (no disrespect to handicapped people meant) you should be able to play this. It is not super fast paced that some other Action MMO:S might be.
+ Voluntary PvP in battlegrounds and scaled so if you win much you will meet harder opponents. If you loose much you will meet easier opponents.
If you do not like PvP you will never have to fight PvP. PvP is always voluntary.
+ Forgotten Realms DnD 4th edition
+ Challenging PvE Dungeons meant for a team of 5 players. However what is interesting you can try these with less big group. You think one Dungeon is sligthly to easy? Try it then with group of 4 players instead of 5 players.
+ Community created PvE adventures instances one can play them also. Players can create adventures if they want for other players to play.
+ True multiplayer and your are not restricted to play with a friend group of maximum 4 players. This is a MMO. Both PvE And PVP is cooperative. It is team vs team in PvP. PvP has also bigger battlegrounds 20 players vs 20 players and so on.
Neutral: Mediocre graphics.
- TIME SINK. I am not motivated more to play 40+ hours /week a game.
- Pay to win either you pay money to get more powerful or play extremely much this game to keep up. Microtransactiona are absolutely not some silly cosmetic only and you can literally buy to become more powerful.
- In order to become more powerful there is also GRIND of doing certain quests areas and so on. This part feels often to me more like grind then fun. I am not meaning exp no you can get certain rewards like boons and talents.
- Eventually I got bored on it like in WOW MMO.
My vote 8/10

Now I am not interested in any MMO that is released right now... but I will keep an eye on the upcoming Ashes of Creation MMO that interest me a lot.

Not so much anymore, skipped New World actually. I plan to start playing Diablo 4 more seriously. I wait Cyberpunk Online but sadly I cant see it being any good, its CDPR's first online game after all.

Btw, Larian's engine could do awesome Ultima Online game. Maybe thats what MMORPG genre needs?

Did you play The Secret World or the seizure inducing bastardization of an awesome game, Secret World Legends? Loved TSW but quit shortly after they forced SWL on everyone.

Same here. TSW was my favourite game for ages. I even ran dungeons and I usually hate doing them in most games. Still can't find any game good enough to replace it.
