Currently I play SW:TOR both Sith Empire and Republic... all PvP. For PvP outside of shooters (yucky) it's really the only option out there at the
moment. I've just heard about Wildstar and now I'm literally chomping at the bit to play it,
it's in it's 3rd closed beta and originally set for release late 2013, but maybe pushed back to 2014. Needless to say I signed up for beta testing,
hoping to get in!!!
Lately, I have been playing Monkey Quest, Offensive Combat, and Runescape 3. Each is an MMO, with Monkey Quest being a mess of quest lines which you
can follow as you upgrade your armor and weapons and abilities until you meet the Monkey King and become one of the greatest monkey warriors in
history. It's a little bit of a jokester game, just for playing around.
Offensive Combat is a FPS game which awards both coins and experience points with each kill, additional points and coins being available if you "pwn",
or dance, over the body of your victim. Points level you up and allow you to purchase extra perks which make it easier to kill and avoid being killed,
as well as upgrade weapons, buy new weapons, and get new "pwns" by which to earn more points to spend on cool stuff.
Runescape 3 is a much more vast and varied sort of game, where experience is available in a huge assortment of areas ranging between defense and
attack to herb lore or thieving. Runescape 3 was just recently released with an event called the Battle of Lumbridge, which has been in effect for a
little over a week and lasts 10 weeks, in which two of its most powerful gods have gone to war against each other in an effort to control the
remaining fragments of a recently deceased god's life force, which provides a source of power for both gods. New and returning players will be asked
to align themselves with one of those two gods before they participate in the event, since they will not be able to redeem any collected "divine
tears" for points until they do so. New armor, emotes, and titles are available to those who collect enough points from gathering "divine tears", what
the game calls the remaining fragments of the dead god's life force. Gathered tears also award votes, through which players can now influence the
course of major developments in the world's storyline.
Needless to say, things have been exciting in the gaming world for me.

MWO (mechwarrior online) big stompy robots, at the moment.
Tactics and building your own Mechs is cool.
Soon the meta game comes in and then my faction (FRR) and I will take over the Galaxy and stop the Clan invasion.
Got great background story, it is intense.
Oh and I hate shooters but this is more like a thinking mans/womans shooter.
Currently a mix between Rift* and The Secret World, but still enjoy others-fav classic Anarchy Online. GW2, is one I'll be finding time to try soon.
RPG wise and more,I'm looking forward especially to releases of Cyberpunk2077 and have heard talks of a WhiteWolf/World of Darkness MMORPG going
forth still. Also, Elder Scrolls Online, signed up but have not been invited for the Beta, has anyone yet?
*Rift is Free2Play now all levels but there's purchase for certain extra items..., seems like there's a lot of WOW players checking it out now,
PVE-RP server is pretty busy, but some say it went free because of people leaving the game.
I am a student majoring in Computer Animation, so am very interested in MMO's and Virtual Reality like Second Life. It is good to analyze the
consumer and what these games offer that set them apart from other games. What makes them popular, and which ways could they be improved.
I personally play WoW, and as another poster had mentioned,I am awaiting the MMO version of The Elder Scrolls. I play many other computer, tablet and
console games. I just want to throw one out there because it is so addictive, and is for tablets or computer, Robot Unicorn Attack 2. Heavy Metal
version or the regular. My productive thinking is ruined with this game!
Thanks for starting this thread, and if there are certain aspects of a particular game that you find particularly interesting, please share. It helps
better games be created with the preferences of the players identified.
Long time raider\guild leader in Everquest 2 since day 1 and still raiding in a top 10 guild .
Most of my time in game was on Najena/Unrest but I transferred to Permafrost.
Looking forward to EQNExt.
I wanted to enjoy Middle Earth Online because of the lore but it never really caught my attention.
