I've already bought and played Diablo 3, which I didn't really consider an MMORPG. I guess I can understand why zhiVago would enjoy it, but to me it just got boring. The things you did felt very repetitive. From the sounds of this thread I think
I'm going to go with Guild Wars 2 because:
A) You don't have to pay monthly
B)It seems like a really fun game from what I've seen
C)I probably won't get addicted to it, which is a good thing
Thank you for all of your suggestions. I don't think the thread is done yet though, so keep 'em coming!
