I've been searching for a good fantasy game for sometime now, but so far, have been unsuccessful.
Lineage II is a grindfest. Aion is a boring grindfest, also, it's the game for which my favorite recent game (Tabula Rasa) was killed. Guild Wars was fun in the early-late stages, but as soon as you reach endgame, it becomes so hard, it's not fun anymore. Cities of Heroes is boring and repetive. Also, plaync are a bad company for customer service and listening to opinions, so you shouldn't deal with them now that I've told you what they're like.
All the other games I researched are made for open pvp (players can kill you anywhere anytime), which I'm not a fan of, I prefer to play the game without worrying about some moron killing me.
So, as yet, my search for a decent game has failed.
Still waiting for mmo Drakan.........
