I'm going to get this out first, my favorite game of all time is Knights of the Old Republic.  So, as you can imagine, with the announcement of The Old Republic, I started to get excited.  As the game gets closer and closer to release my excitement gets higher with each tid-bit of information released.
 

I know it will probably be similar to WOW in style, but I could see how that could be awesome in the Star Wars universe.  I've tried WOW and couldn't really get into the typical fantasy universe.  I liked the loot system in WoW and even found myself killing shit just to collect things to sell to store owners for that next piece of armour while I was still an extremely low level.  I would eventually lose interest though after a week or so.
 
 Intense!
I can maintain interest in an MMO though.  (Get ready to laugh)  I've played Runescape since it basically launched and over several years have gotten my character to a decently high level.  I know this isn't the same as these big boy MMOs, but I can commit once I get the level or loot lust going.  I think that just the Star Wars part of it will help keep me going at first until I get hooked.  I just hope I don't end up like one of those stories you hear about people addicted to WoW.
 
I have barely under a year left to wait and I'm sure I will continue to gain hype as they release some more bad ass CG trailers that have nothing to do with the game!  I just hope I don't get burned.

I loathe Runescape. The Old Republic looks good though. I'm also really looking forward to it.

I highly commend you dude for not just doing quest span and writing something worth while :) 
 
I am very looking foreword to The Old Republic. I loved KOTOR and more stuff like that is pure gravy. Also MMOs aint that bad.

@AjayRaz: Yah, I only play in spurts anymore.  I'll buy a month of membership and fish while I browse the internet.  I'm in the 80's,but, at the rate I'm going, I won't hit 99 in this lifetime.

I go back to Runescape from time to time. Rarely, it sucks me in and I end up paying for a month. If my Runescape playing had one of those signs on the wall that says "Accident free for X days" then it would be higher now than it ever has. At this point, I'm not sure that I'll ever go back again. I guess I'm on to bigger and better things now.
