    I'm gonna wait for the movie coming out December 18, 2015, the same day as Star Wars: Episode VII. Both movies will no doubt have plenty of vfx to jerk off to.

    And no, I do not like the game enough to go see the Warcraft movie before Star Wars.

    In fact, I actually found it long, boring, and repetitive when I played the 14-day trial. And the fact it's so addictive to some makes me question how interesting they are as people.

    Yeah, I read that on IMDb right after I posted that. Realistically, I knew it was coming, it was just a question of which movie was gonna be pushed. And they chose...wisely.

    I wonder if Warcraft is actually gonna do well financially. Everyone I know who plays WOW are too addicted to the game to even answer the door if they're lucky enough to not be morbidly obese and unable to move at all.

    I say this seriously. I could never get into WoW, not enough to keep me interested, after a while the game just re-skins the same system but calls it fresh.

    WoW, Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, and Guild Wars 2 are probably the main drivers of today's MMOs, at least when it comes to paying wise.

    I'm not sure about WoW, but you more than likely don't even need to join chats/guilds if you didn't want to in FFXIV or Guild Wars 2. Any dungeons that may need to be done can be formed randomly. And, with any game, if either you or him decides to play tank and healer, things will go by that much smoothly in most MMO's.

    I think the most casual of the three would be Guild Wars 2, because a lot of people tend to use GW2 as a fallback MMO, whereas for FFXIV and WoW tends to make people want to invest more time into the game.

    But I see you've picked WoW already, considering its base has been there for years, it shouldn't be that bad.

    Elder Scrolls Online is gonna wipe the floor with WoW.
    I've also read LOTR Online and DC Universe ain't half bad.

    They're also free-to-play.

    WoW has kinda sucked since the Lich King expansion.
    They sucked all of the difficulty and wonder out of it.

    Cataclysm (while a worthy expansion) royally screwed up Westfall, my favorite zone in the game. Unforgivable.

    And props to AA--I can only play it for two weeks at a time for the very reasons you mentioned. Kill x beasts and get drop loot, deliver message to npc, escort npc through dangerous territory, group up and kill monster, etc. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    I think it's the big flaw with any long-term game, as there is no "ending." Most games, you play through a few times and quit. MMOs are going to feel repetitive after awhile. I had it happen with every one of them if I play them long enough. I'm doing SWTOR right now, and what's holding my interest is building a character from each class and doing the quest lines... but I'm always bored with some of the quests and worlds I'm repeating and once I finish all the storylines, I'll probably be bored.

    Also, if you don't both play goblin, you'll have to meet up after ~10 (IIRC). Dungeons open sometime around then anyway though. PvP will be of dubious fun because you won't have heirlooms.

    WOW is pretty good in general for just picking up and playing though. Honestly, it's the end game that they butchered in Cata, and the improvements in Mist aren't enough to keep me. Also, no flying in mists meant I didn't bother to level my other 9 chars.


    Didn't find FF14 (v2) any good. I tried playing NWN and it ended up to pay to win for me, although it was fun when I was doing it. LOTR, EQ2 and so forth aren't very good, honestly, and GW2 and all the action-types just aren't great. WoW is still the most polished.

    That's true, one of the reasons I liked the original Guild Wars so much is the amount of experimentation you could achieve class wise.

    I actually didn't care for the main focus of questing and levelling, I found it more interesting to come up with builds no one else had and thus that no one was expecting. I have played SWTORO and I really enjoyed the story aspect, I played as an empire agent.

    Unfortunately my interest petered out very early, which is a shame since it is quite an engaging game otherwise. I also have GW 2 but I really need a new PC to do it justice and unfortunately I don't know how it's popularity is keeping.
