I've been following several different gaming sites. Right now I'm playing AC2 and EQ2. Older games that are good games and keep me wanting to log in day to day.

Disclaimer: I do not include many of the Asian style games. As a personal preference I am not a fan of these games though I've tried a few. Archeage looks and sounds great but I still doubt I will kick down for that title if and when it is released. It's publisher is having some financial problems so we'll see.

EQ: The first MMORPG I ever played and I stuck with this game for many years. When my original guild disbanded I had alot of difficulty enjoying the game after that. F2P

SWTOR: Played this just after release. It is currently shelved. Great story but limited content and crafting was completely unnecessary. F2P

Rift: Played this just after release. It is currently shelved. A single player game slapped into a MMO box. Low amount of content, repetitive game-play. F2P

AoC: Played this just after release. It is currently shelved. Very decent PVP but repetitive. It got old really quick for me. F2P

TSW: Played this just after release. Great story and puzzles but not much content. A single player game in a MMO box. It is currently shelved. F2P

Fallen Earth: Played this just after release. It's decently set up but questing was very go here, kill 10 of these. Very repetitive game-play. It is shelved. F2P

Champions Online, Anarchy Online, DDO, DAoC, GW, EVE Online, LOTRO, Aion: All games I've tried and each have their merits but game-play was repetitive and I got bored quickly. Some games require subs and some are F2P.

Defiance: Not playing it, its supposed to be a MMOFPS.
FFARR: Very mixed reviews for FFARR (Final Fantasy) Not going to buy and play this title. $30 for the software.

Guild Wars 2: Lots of mixed reviews for this game. F2P and typically I do not much care for F2P games. I will not be playing this title.

COH/COV, Marvel Online, DCUO: All hero games and though I've tried CoH I'm finding that hero games are not my thing.

STO: Never tried this game but from what I was told. It is exactly like Champions Online (same game maker) except with ships. F2P right now.

Vanguard: I played this at release but it's player base was so low I lost interest. I actually thought it's game-play to be invigorating and difficult. (which I like) F2P right now.

Ultima Forever, Neverwinter, Firefall, Wildstar: Lots of mixed reviews for these games. I have not tried them nor intend to.

EQ2: Now that's it's free, I've been playing it on occasion. It's pretty fun but kinda easy now. Worth checking it out though since it's free I think.

AC2: Older game reskinned. Difficult and refreshing. No ! or ? standing above people and you do what you want to do. A grind-fest for sure but fun. It's $10 for the software and $12.50/month.

WAR: Is ending soon. Servers go down on December 18th.

EQ:Next >From the ground up, a game designed for the console gamer in mind. 1 ability tab with 8 abilities max and limited controls. Innovative game-play is promised but the graphics look pretty cheesy IMHO and I will definitely wait for real game-play reviews before putting money down on this title when it is released.

ESO: Still the leader of the pack I think. Graphics look wonderful, game-play looks exciting and fresh. Content is a concern but I am not a 40 hour a week gamer anyway. Crafting sounds interesting and necessary and enough customization to make characters different from one another. We'll see but I'm definitely going to play at release.

I second the review on Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. It's a great game. Start it up with a friend. It can be difficult with only one person at times, but with two+ people the game truly shines and is incredibly fun. Just remember: Disciples are overpowered as hell for soloing. They attack AND heal at literally the same time. The bard class is bad at soloing but the most fun of all classes because of the song system they have. Combine these two for a great questing combo with a friend.

One of the more promising games in development is Star Citizen. I'm very excited about this game due to the fact that there is no publisher. It is completely crowd funded and they just blew past $20,000,000 in donations. Chris Roberts is the guy that made the Wing Commander games and he wants SC to be a game HE wants to play. I'll be following this closely.
