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 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.
