Sadly Hokie you were only doing Newspaper/Radio missions. These lead up to stopping a bank heist or pulling a bank job which in turn gave you a new contact(villain side this is almost the only way you got one). Here is where the BIG stories lay with the contacts up through the levels. The BIG stories being Story Arcs which gave you all the RICH background information on the City of Paragon and the Rogue Isles.
This is where CoH/V outshines the others, it wasn't all smack this guy down or clear this place and on to the next. There were GREAT stories being told if you took the time to read the dialog for each mission, watch what the NPCs were saying in the missions and pay attention to what villain groups you were fighting. And the stories didn't end with missions. The exploration markers told stories. The history markers told stories. Task Forces had meanings with a story line not just a bunch of missions tied together.
Also the city/isles were full of many visual things that most people don't notice. Did anyone else take time to fly to the top of a building and not only see the blinking marker light but also HEAR it? Fans inside vents you normally don't look at actually turn! How about the skeleton on a little desolate island? An airplane down under water? Fish jumping out of the water and you can see them swimming around too.
And the players, most of them the most friendly, helpful bunch I have met in any online game and I have played quite a few but I have always come back to CoH/V because it is so much fun. Well if my city does go to bit heaven I and my 100+ heroes/villains will surely miss her as there is NO other that replace this ONE OF A KIND MMO.
