Can't say that I'm hooked, story lines are mildly entertaining until I find something better to play.

Bioware's storytelling ability reached its apex with Jade Empire, and has slowly been falling off ever since. This was only hastened when Drew Karpyshyn left the company. It really shows in DA2, ME3, and SWTOR.

As far as being hooked, the Imperial Agent storyline had me hooked for chapter 1, but chapter 2 pretty much lost me. Chapter 3 was better, but by that point I'd honestly stopped caring. I quit the game altogether when they nerfed my class to uselessness (unless you wanted to heal) because of the PvP babies.

Funnily enough, it wasn't until I quit that I started noticing all the little things which I had been overlooking because 'it was STAR WARS!'. But that's another thread entirely.

   actually I have never played Jade Empire, I heard that was more of an aciton game rather that story telling, is that true?  Da2 actually has a good story line with political intrigue its just that bioware got lazy and everything in the game looks the same and it was not as good as DA.  ME2 was a great story because Shepard had to gather this crew most of which he had never met before and each one had a mission of there own and a story of their own to tell, because Me3 was a continuation those interesting story lines could not be told again. So the story in me3 was not quite as engaging as me2 however I love the combination of action and story and rpg elements in both me2 and 3.  I would love to see swtor put in a "Jump to lightspeed" space and take out the current space game they have now, if they can put in SWG space and crafting that would be awsome

That and when I realised how much of the world was just a backround and can;'t be explored.

Ive been hooked by BG and original Fallouts. Its been all downhill (more or less steep) from then.

Think that ME3 is last BW game ill buy (and i do have them all), and i said farewell to SWTOR, its just too generic.

Since when is it wrong on forums to enjoy a games story? Im pretty sure its hard to compare the level of story that bioware delivers in their games, or someone else would have done it before them....and they didnt.

Hard to get hooked on a generic yawn fest of a game with a shockingly bad game engine.

It's the only MMO I'm subscriped to at the moment and I play it pretty regularly, so I guess I could say I'm hooked.  In fact, I really am not looking forward to any game on the horizon at the moment, and I'm satisfied taking my time with SWTOR (level 41 currently).

I'm happy with the graphics, I don't PvP, and I really enjoy the story lines.  There are things about the game that I hope will either be added, improved or changed at some point, but that's normal in all MMOs.

On a side note, I understand that this is a forum, but geez, when someone obviously makes a positive thread about a game, why do so many people feel the need to shit all over it?  We get it.  you don't like the game.  Move on already.  It's probably never going to be something you're interested in, so go support some other MMO instead of constantly trying to tear down the ones you don't like.

The Kid started crying over his dads dead body and I told the kid to go back to his mom and he the kid would thank me some day.  WOW what great story telling and roll play goodness-I was hooked after that .

You are talking about the story, which was pretty good (for an MMO).  Unfortunately I finished the story within the first month and then saw how poor the PVP was and un-subbed.  Thinking the story was pretty good (for an MMO) is different than "being hooked."  Chess hooked me, I still play.  Civ4 hooked me I still play.  There is no hook in SWTOR unfortunately and I no longer play.

And yeah, I shot the guys dad too.  The wuss tried to wimp out of Sith camp even though it looked like he had the apptitude.  This is war soldier!

The first month I was hooked. The second month I regretted signing up for another month. I was gone by the third month.

   LOL  actually I was tempted to shoot the kid.  I am a more casual player, I have been playing from the beginning and have 1 main and 3 alts so I have not gotten to end game yet. yes I do agree that the PvP is lame , I think bioware should scrap PvP and just concentrate on the space game

There are many people who love swtor but are afraid to say so cause they are afraid of the haters, I am not in fact I like a good arguement

I was hooked until i finished my character creation.

 

Then I got dumped into the lifeless trashpile that the game is.

Thankfully it was a beta weekend so I didn't pay money to find how how fail it is.

I was hooked when on the 2nd day I uninstalled this piece of garbage and moved on to a real game, Oh wait you mean when was I hooked on swtor? hmm never, i was falling asleep my 2nd day in due to how generic and bland the game was after waking up from a normal 8 hr sleep. Went to play some f2p mo iirc that was far more intersting in many ways.. but thats me. Thankfully i was on a beta weekend so I didn't have to waste money on this.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

I really doubt that. But if people are scared of anonymous internet tough guys and keyboard warriors whom we are never even going to meet face to face than wow... i have no words. But like i said i doubt people are afraid to express themselves if they like swtor just that most of the happy people are busy playing while unhappy people are busy complaining.

Theres the problem. SWTOR tried to introduce PVP, did it badly(is it alright to say horrible), and didnt come with any guild perks/abilities/anything. If they just took ALL the pvp out and focused on making it a pve game, that would probably be for the best on this game. As it is, less of an MMO, more of a coop singleplayer.
