Re: New Game Suggestions
First of all, I'm biased... I love EVE, I've been playing for years. But it sounds exactly like what you're looking for. There's no "Final Boss", players control and define gameplay, especially in that their corps and alliances are free to form their own political standings.
A small warning... it CAN take a while to get into the game, and it can be a little lonely. Get involved with a corp or some friends early.
Look for me in game, Ximal Daroon... and have fun.
