This week alone I have tried Star Trek Online, Champions Online, Rift, Warhammer and Age of Conan, as well as some lesser known titles like Wurm Online. Frankly I was disappointed by all of them Warhammer held my interests the longest this week, but only because I could immediately jump into PVP action in Tier 1.
My tastes have changed substantially over the years, especially now that I am married and cannot spend 8 hours a day grinding out levels or raiding, at this point I think a Sandbox type MMO like UO was back in the day or EVE is currently would best fit my play-style and available time allotment. I need a game I can just jump into and play for a few hours and still feel a sense of accomplishment, a game with a community that is good and a game I can make a mark on the world. I still miss making towns and defending them ala UO and Shadowbane.
I was hoping for a time Earthrise would be something I would want to play, but its a buggy peice of shit game, as is the leading sandbox contender Mortal Online. EVE is too slow paced for me, and Darkfalls graphics make me want to puke.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what to play?
In the meantime I am waiting to try out these:
