Most of my SWG vet friends are in LOTR and/or EVE atm.  Me, I'm beta testing stuff ^_^.  I like helping out with the development process of new MMOs.  I love the genre and the MMO gaming community in general.  I also have a lot of respect for many of the developers who put their blood, sweat and tears into a new game.  Generally any issues I have are with the suits that screw up the work of their developers and the experience of their players by changing the vision of the game anytime a new "get rich quick" scheme pops into their heads.

I'm looking forward to the release of STO and TOR.  I'm a PvP fan so I'll probably try Klingons when STO goes live.

That is an issue even I am guilty of. Often us players refer to the people making bad MMOs as "the developers", but in reality the developers are just making what they are told. The real culprits are the designers/suits.

As for what I am playing at the moment, nothing. Haven't found an MMO that is good enough to be playing that I haven't already played and gotten bored of.

Tried: LotR, CoH, AoC, WAR, Jumpgate Classic
Played: SWG, Guild Wars, WoW
Playing: Eve Online, Counter-strike
Loved: Star Wars Galaxies
Waiting for: Earthrise, Guild Wars 2, anything sandbox.

I have been playing LotRO and am enjoying it. I joined it back when the game and its previous expansion were included (and 30 days game play) for $9.99. I had heard more good about the game than bad, and was pleased to find a good game that is not buggy and has enough content to keep me quite entertained. I was also  fourtunate enough to fall into a great, supportive guild. I am not big into PvP, so I can understand those that do not caring for the game.

If I was not already involved in LotRO, I would probably be playing Fallen Earth. I am also looking forward to the player feedback on Global Agenda and Star Trek On-Line when they release Feb 1st and 2nd respectively.

Same here on the LOTRO gaming. I enjoy it for its ability to allow for solo play as my hours are always unpredicatable. Overall, the game is good and the expansions are actually quality upgrades to the gameplay. The new skirmish system is a ton of fun and a perfect addition to my options when I do get to play. Its not for everyone but certainly is better than the  normal fare and will keep me subscribing until I get a good long term solution to my sci-fi mmo need.

Star Trek Online or SWTOR may be the next up on deck.

Playing WoW believe it or not. Quite frankly, it was John Smedleys endorsement of the game that got me to try it in the first place. I mean, if you ruin your own game just to make it like another game, that's a pretty big endorsement. Thanks to John, I just HAD to see what all the fuss was about. Took me awhile to figure out that WoW is more of a complete playground (ie: with slides and swings), than a sandbox. Once I got into it, I found it quite fun. Still miss the sandbox though.

Now that I've figured out what WoW is all about, whenever I return to SWG (on a vet trial), it makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit each time I see a 'new' gameplay mechanic that they've shamelessly lifted from WoW. Gameplay mechanics that never quite work as smoothly as they do WoW's version. So if I'm gonna play WoW, might as well play the version that works (and has a decent population).

Waiting on TOR of course, and HOPING that STO doesn't suck as much as I think it's going to.

Other than that, I've picked up a few older FPS games and have been quite happy with those.

If TOR sucks though, I will be sad, and will probably swear off MMO's.

Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

Global Agenda looks interesting to me. Pre-order it now and you gain access to Beta this month, due Feb. STO and SW:ToR of course are the other "big" games of 2010 IMO.

Until these games release though, I'm quite happy playing CoD (5&6) games.

Funny you say that about WoW.  I played for a while at the invitation of a friend.  When I saw how many of the systems had been ripped off by CUNGE though, I just couldn't stand it lol. 
 

I do have other friends that play though.  They're good people in a nice guild, and they've been enjoying it for a long time now.  Apart from unpleasant reminders of the NGE, the only problem I had in WoW was waiting in the queue to get in because my friend's server was just so bloody full.  I guess that's not a bad problem to have it you're in the MMO business lol, too many people :P.

Not playing any MMORPG atm. Just cant find that experience SWG used to give me. I have played LOTRO on and off the last couple of years, but im just tired of it riight now. The Rohan expansion might be the next time i return, for the wide open spaces i hope will be there to explore.

My intrest in LOTRO is mostly about the lore and the story, so Bioware isnt exactly the first company to bring that fourth pillar to the genre imo. They are most likely taking it further tho.

My interest of the genre has gone the way of the Dodo...

Playing EvE. It's certainly not a drop-in replacement for Pre-CU SWG, but it stands on it's own merits as a great game in my opinion.

Playing Wurm and FoM. The former somewhat similar in terms of player housing and scouting out cool locales to live in, the latter similar in terms of nothing really ever happening in the game unless people do something about it.

I'm trying out Fallen Earth right now.

If what I've read is to be believed, this is very much a work in progress and there is probably as much wrong with the game as there is right with it.

But how about these features old SWG fans?

Skill based system, no instances - completely open world, no fast travel, complex and satisfying crafting system, Horse and vehicle mounts. BTW your horse never disappears unless you store it like in a barn. You have to feed it, heal it, take care of it. Taverns/bars which generate a beneficial buff for hanging around there, gambling, and player created "camps" which also give a buff and allow access to mail and vaults without returning to town. Online GMs! 6 fully fleshed out factions (all human).

I haven't PvPd yet, but comments I've read lead me to believe that much work needs to be done here. PvE is said to be too easy. Supposedly lot's of other bugs, glitches... you know.

I'd say it depends on what you're looking for. If you want a world to live in, this could be it. Even I'm not sure of that yet, but it does look promising!

Nothing.

I've played a lot since leaving SWG, but none for more than a couple of months...I just suddenly realise how linear and single minded these games are, and get bored.

Quest, quest, quest, level level level....snore.

Exception....I almost stayed in Darkfall...kinda kicking myself in the ass now that I didn't. People may scream "It's not a sandbox!!!" but it's still more of a sandbox than most titles out there at the moment.

Fallen Earth looked promising, but I beta tested it for a couple months, and saw a familiar pattern emerging (nothing gets fixed, performance sucks ass) so I bailed ship.

Now I'm just kinda waiting, and playing some stuff from other genres (L4D2, Borderlands, etc).

Quick aside, it looks like Fallen Earth is about to get a graphics overhaul already.

That's both scary and impressive.

It looks great, but the way the game looked was never really an issue to me...it was the HORRIBLE performance.

In the beta forums we had several LONG threads about what could be done to improve the performance of the game and also reduce crowd lag, and we were completely ignored.

If somehow these new changes result in smooth gameplay, then maybe we'll have something....but I just can't get my hopes up at this point.

I'm in CoH, and I have to say that for the first time, I'm liking it as much as old SWG.

The key for me was to get into an RP group.
