I've tried playing mmos over years (yes even MxO before it was all cool and shit) but I can't ever seem to stick one out. I love the idea of getting together with a bunch of friends or even randoms and just questing together but I can never find myself drawn into the experience. There are quite a few high profile MMOs out this year with the biggest probably being Guild Wars 2. I really like a lot of the ideas they've got going on there but so much of that game just doesn't look like I'd enjoy it after seeing beta gameplay footage. The combat doesn't look anything out of the ordinary, the UI just doesn't look modern and niether do the graphics. I shall wait to see but that may be too in-depth for me and my MMO noobness. Out today or in a few hours I should say is Tera. I think the combat in that game looks really awesome and the graphics look really nice (although question art style) yet from what I've read the quest are just straight up boring and the PvP isn't very in-depth. I'd like to point out that I keep seeing adverts that Aeon recently went F2P in Europe, is that any good?
Are there any other MMOs coming out within the foreseeable future that could fit what I would want with engaging combat and awesome quests?
