I'm everywhere and nowhere. Gaming addiction. Gaming ADD. But SWG, even though I haven't been around much over the last few years, is home. Starsider in particular. Where will we see the next great place to RP? I don't think that will be for several years. My money's on World of Darkness Online. They want you, the social gamer, the roleplayer and they've got White Wolf folks on the payroll. Doesn't mean it won't totally suck, of course, but seems like the closest thing out there. CCP folks are smart when it comes to designing sandbox games and player driven gameplay. White Wolf knows roleplayers. *crosses fingers*
Meantime? CoH, STO, LOTRO. Those are my usual haunts these days except for the whole ADD thing. So I often forget to play any of them.
I'll probably have to check out TOR. I can't see how such a structured narrative environment will be healthy for freeform roleplaying but you never know. And it could be fun. I like Bioware games in general but...sandbox. I need my sandbox. Eve Online...too much PvP for my tastes. But with walking in stations and the arrival of avatars I might just have to demothball my old Amarr battleship and poke around. If only to get an idea of what World of Darkness might hold for us.
Oh, SWG. What a love/hate relationship it's been. But you made me care. That's more than the rest of them so far.
