Well... since I despised EQ... You probably won't like what I like.

I'm looking forward to Hero's Journey, if it ever gets out of vaporware status.

The main reason is because it's not a "whack a mole treadmill" game. The quests are more like mini adventure games (which is the main focus... "not go kill 10 rats for 10 rat tails crap"), and every player is focused upon being "the hero". Cool beans, if they implement it right.

Here are some (old) interviews that explain why I like the concepts a lot:

Also these guys just sold a license of their engine to Bioware for their MMO... so that tells me that if Bioware thinks HJ's engine is good enough for their MMO... there's got to be something good there for us.
