View Full Version : Dang.. the current freeze in new MMORPG is reprehensible.

As an avid player of MMORPG I have gotten extremely bored with the current crop of MMORPG.


I've Played Everquest for 3 years. I need something new and innovative.

Anarchy Online shows its age too much engine wise and gameplay mechanics for me to truly play it anymore.
I prefer magical fantasy rather than futuristic fantasy

Asherons Call 2 is hardly a game that motivates me to play on. I could give it more of a shot but I'd really rather hold out at this point.


Star Wars galaxy was ok. But I cant really sit down and play it. It's got a lot of bugs and the Star wars universe doesnt entice me.


So far I have Lineage 2, Everquest 2, And Worlds of Warcraft.


Really considering Lineage 2. As I'd rather get away from the Everquest world. But i still have several months to wait. And Worlds of Warcraft will be released god only knows when.


So... Left in a situation where I am waiting for the next thing.. I wonder. Is Anyone else around here addicted to MMORPGs? I used to try and fight this addiction. But I simply cannot stop playing them.

I need em. I enjoy them. What can I say :)

I really am about to buy SWG. Seriously.

Now, once I do, it'll get lost in the mail and a bear will break into my house, run up the stairs, and steal my computer. Just watch.

The only MMORPG ive ever been hooked on was Runescape (freeware game.. look it up). I played that for a few hours every night for weeks straight.... then I got bored and quit...

That game was FREE and I quit.... you know how fast Id quit a game if I wasnt totaly immersed AND was paying for it?

MMORPGs are just not for me.....

Everquest is the only online RPG that has kept me interested for more than a week. There really aren't any worth buying right now... I'm waiting for EQ 2 and Worlds of Warcraft.

Heh Despite what anyone says, Everquest still is the best MMORPG currently available IMO.

*sigh* It's kinda sad you know.


I really hope LIneage 2 and Worlds of Warcraft provide some real competition tho

I gave up on em a while ago... heck I am so out of the loop I even though KOTOR was supposedly MMORPG :rofl

bleh... anyways isnt there supposed to be a new EQ coming out with high def characters and a larger expanded universe ?

is that the case or is it an expansion pack sorta thing that upgrades textures ?

EQ 2 is a completely new game. And the graphics look damn good. Here (http://www.gamespy.com/e32003/image.asp?platform=PC&genre=RPG&image=http://www.gamespy.com/e32003/screens/PC/eq2/kerra1.jpg) and here (http://www.gamespy.com/e32003/image.asp?platform=PC&genre=RPG&image=http://www.gamespy.com/e32003/screens/PC/eq2/orc_vs_human.jpg)

I saw it in my pc gaming mag... just didn't read much about it... character models look very nice :)

personally I am waiting for total war : rome to come on out... my gf is into ancient history such as that and it would be a perfect way for me to introduce her to the world of gaming (well gaming other than blackjack online :D )

Ya EQ 2 looks nice. It definately looks like a plausible fallback should Worlds of Warcraft and Lineage Fail.

I would just like to see some competition for Sony.


I am currently stuck with a disabled EQ account with a level 65 Paladin which I just cant bring myself to play anymore due being completely burnt out on Everquest.

We need variety otherwise it'll always be EQ :(

So far no MMORPG has interested me enough to play it when it comes out. I always wait until it drops down to $10 or $20, and then I might give the 7 day trial a shot and if I like it I'll buy it, play it for a month, and then usually never play it again. And right now I'm downloading that 7 day trial for Planetside (on a 56k, believe it or not). I'm not sure, while the idea intrigues me, the need for a monthly fee turns me away from it. I'd much rather just play Diablo 2 then have to pay month after month to keep playing a game (though I have yet to re-buy my copy of D2).

I donno, I must not be a big MMORPG fan. I have a great idea in my head of the perfect MMORPG for me, but until someone makes it (or until I make it ;) ) I probably won't be playing any MMROPGs for more then a month. BTW, any FREE MMORPGs out there? I'm not looking for anything major, just some little thing that I can play when I'm really board so that I can feel like I'm accomplishing something.

Ain't history funny?

You could try Guild Wars but I heard WOW fans won't like it. It's my first mmorpg so I'm quite impressed.

I don't think he's looking for MMORPGs to play anymore, since his post was from 2 years ago. Yet two years later, noone answered my question...

Do you mean free as 100% free? Or free as in you don't pay per month? Because Guild Wars you don't have to pay monthly...

WTF??? Can't believe I feel for one of these old threads again. If I knew it were so dated I wouldn't have posted.
