    [​IMG] Well, for me..

    I can't stand MMORPGs... Hundreds/Thousands of players surrounding you.. Leveling up = A damn chore.. Cheaters.. Hackers.. Glitchers... Yeah.

    You need more options. I feel so-so about them. I love playing them, they're like crack, but they eat your life. I'd wake up, load up the game, play, and before I knew it it was time to go to bed. The next day rinse, wash, repeat.

    I liked Maple Story and started getting into WoW but I found myself staying up late and being addicted - so I quit.

    MMORPGs are pretty cool, I wish they'd make one for the DS!

    I did a short, but awesome stint with Star Wars Galaxies, then they did the Gameplay Patch that changed everything and that pissed me off so I quit. They ruined my Creature Handler. [​IMG]

    Then I played WoW for a month or two and enjoyed that, but we couldn't keep affording the Monthly Fee. I've been thinking about getting back into it though.

    I might have given WoW a shot, if I didn't understand how much it has messed up my brother - an addict.

    A different kind of MMO would be fine, something which provides real fun.

    I prefer playing solo because I hate feeling obligated to play until the x-hour mission is over, but then rather than all the fun and benefits of team play (lol) it's just grindgrindgrind. When I was playing WoW right before I quit, I was just running around looking at the scenery, seeing all the places I could go before I obligatorily got horribly raped by some level ??? thing.

    I've tried some MMORPGs.. gets boring after sometime.. you just keep killing monsters to get experience so that you can kill more monsters to get more experience..
    Never played WoW though.. I've heard it's a little different.. might give it a shot some time..

    What I'd really like to see is an Action-MMORPG. A game that controls like Zelda or Fable (IE non-turn-based), but with all of the staples of a solid open-ended MMORPG.

    I haven't actually seen or heard much about it, but isn't that what Tabula Rasa is suppose to be?

    [​IMG] That game has one bullshit community.

    Too much hackers, making it a damn chore to train.

    Oh wait, isn't it already a chore to level up? [​IMG]

    I used to play quite a few MMO's. The first one was Maple Story, but it got boring, there was TONS of hacjers (and I'm not even kidding you. Over half the population were hackers), and the leveling is a friggin' grind. I had to spend like 5 hours leveling when I was at LV30. o__o

    I then moved on to Ragnarok private servers, and I still play those from time to time. I've played a lot more MMO's, but these two are the only ones I've actually stuck with for a while. (Played Maple for about a year and half, Ragnarok for about 2)

    As I understand it the true addict can forgo this stage.


    I played phantasy star online (episode 1) on the DC but have not been tempted since.
