Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: 
Yes, I was interested in this game because I am a fan of things to do with horror and mythology. 
 
Do you currently play this game?:

 

I currently play the game, yes.  

If yes, please explain why:

The game allows me to immerse myself in a modern MMO with a dark,  adult theme.  I enjoy the cut scenes and the lore, as well as the fact that I can be all things available with one character, minus faction choice.  I enjoy that so far there have been monthly content updates, even if they contain only a few new quests each time.  October should bring the new raid, as well.  I'm also a fan of the instances.  Not only do they contain interesting lore, but they do away with the need to spend an hour fighting trash mobs.  Yes, there are trash mobs to fight but they are miniscule in number compared to other games I've played.  I have to state, however, that I have taken my time with this game.  I am in Trannsylvania, the last major quest area in the game currently, but have not completed all the quests.  I keep myself playing other games in order to not burn myself out.
 
If no, please explain why:
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
TSW: As stated in the general topic.
 
DCUO: I like to plug my Xbox controller into my PC and play the game like an action title.  I enjoy the pvp matches which are pretty in depth if you actually know how to play the game instead of only looking at what's on the surface.
 
SWTOR: I am a Star Wars dork.  I jump in, level a couple of levels, then go play something else for a couple weeks.  I enjoy the storylines but I am not a big fan of what I perceive to be a leveling grind.  I suppose it is a grind to me because games such as DCUO, TERA, GW2, and TSW have spoiled me toward wanting more action.
 
GW2: Technically, I suppose, you cannot call it current unless you count the stress tests.  I am playing GW2 because I keep hearing what a big deal it is and I want to see why.  I'm interested in the pvp, the mechanics of the game, the dynamic events.
 
Aion: I dabble with this game because it's free.  It seems to be the most free to play game out of the freemiums and so there's no real risk to me in jumping in a couple hours a week.  I bought the game on release and didn't like it.  Now that I don't have to sub and they cut the grind, it's not so bad.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?
 
I hardly post unless I consider it constructive.  Unfortunately, the type of pvp found in these forums does not tickle my fancy so to speak.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

I honestly didn't like TSW when I first heard of it. I pre-ordered it because my boyfriend really wanted to play it, and I didn't want him to play it alone. Looking at the gameplay videos before launch, I wasn't really very impressed. 

Do you currently play this game?:

Hell, yes!

If yes, please explain why:

During the closed beta for pre-orders, I tried the game and absolutely loved it. I felt embarrased for bitching about the game so much (only to the BF) when it turns out that it's one of the most engaging games I've every played. The puzzle/adventure elements of the game really drew me in. It's nice to find a game that doesn't spoonfeed me all the information I need to progress. It's a game that makes me think. The investigation missions are the best, and storytelling in this game is absolutely top notch. I can't say I've played any other game where I distinctly remember every single NPC I've ever met. 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

At the moment, I'm not playing any other MMO's than The Secret World, though I've played SWTOR and WOW in the past and I love them all equally. SWTOR also had fantastic storytelling and WOW was my first real MMORPG so it will always hold a place in heart. 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I like TSW very much, this is actually just my first post so I'm not sure how frequently I will be posting. I usually just lurk until I find a topic worth replying to.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Yes, although I have to admit I paid more attention to the development of GW2. 

Do you currently play this game?: Yes.

If yes, please explain why: I got to try the game during beta and was simply blown away by the story, the hilarious NPCs and the investigation quests in particular. I don't remember ever having to actually think while playing an MMO, so this was a very novel experience (and also part of the reason while TSW isn't very popular with the masses, I guess). It's a thinking man's game, definitely a change from all the "kill 10 rats"-style MMOs. 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: TSW is my main focus at the moment. 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? It's my main MMO at the moment - even so, I post more often on the official forums than on here.

I plan to get it eventually, but prior FunCom experience  makes me wait 6 months after launch.

Right now I play GW2, great game.

As for why I post in this forum? I kinda like the forum.

One and only TSW.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes, a great deal. I was in the closed beta and following the game closely. I was very interested in the setting/lore.

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

I was very disappointed in the gameplay and execution of the genre/atmosphere. I found the combat hectic, twitchy and unsatisfying and the lore/quests boring and silly. Secret 'lore' being glowing floaties hidden in bushes and behind outhouses was just pathetic.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I am not currently playing any MMOs. I might play some more of SWToR when it goes free to play as I found it to be an amusing single-player game. I am profoundly unhappy with all the current offerings on the market and not inclined to spend money on any of them. I occasionally drop in on other F2P games for a session or two a month.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Mostly random boredom with a heavy dose of dislike of FunCom added in...I don't waste my time trolling, but I'll be amused when TSW goes to a freemium or F2P model.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes because I'm tired of all that fantasy rubbish we have been given over the years.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

Because it's an interesting ame and by far the best we currently have imo.

If no, please explain why:

----

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Have also GW2 on mu HD but haven't played it for 2 weeks and probably won't play in any time soon. It's just not worth my time imo. So I currently play only TSW.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Because I like TSW and although we have tons of trolls in this subforum as in any other there are also lots of people who are constructive and discuss differents aspects of this game.

Yes

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Yes, because of the setting

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

Because I saw gameplay footage with terrible looking combat, Pvp as an afterthought, and linear quest progression

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

GW2, because BT2 model, PvP, and because there are no sandboxes I enjoy on the market atm

The rantings and ramblings of an MMO addict…

10/14/12 3:20:47 PM#71

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes, I gave it a go through the open beta's. I was not thrilled with the game initially but I decided to take the plunge regardless of that and fell in love with it on launch day. I was interested in it because the setting and graphics seemed like something I had been yearning for in an MMO for years.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes, I recently returned to it after a short hiatus. I think the game has a ton of potential and I'm really hoping that they start putting out some serious content in the near future.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I currently play Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy XIV and The Secret World. All three have different settings and different things I like about them. Guild Wars 2 has no subscription fee which is great and I love the setting. Final Fantasy XIV started out rough but I believe in Yoshida-san's vision and I'm looking forward to 2.0 and The Secret World was explained above.

I play these particular three at the moment, because I've been writing articles about them. I feel that a person writes better articles when they actively play the MMO they're writing about (I fear many writers don't actually do this).

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I post when I feel there is something to post about. I don't really have a good answer for this one.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes I was interested.  Skill system, setting seemed interesting.

Do you currently play this game?:

I am currently subbed, but waiting on more content.


If yes, please explain why:  Waiting on more content, but the stories/quests were very well done and had a lot of detail for the most part.

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  I bought GW2, but have only played it for like 30 mins...Plan to give it another go sometime...

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?   I mostly just watch recent topics, and if I see something, I post....I visited this forum more when I was playing TSW more...I am mostly a recent post watcher..

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes.I'm a horror buff and liekd the proposed setting,I also thoguht it would be interesting to see how Ragnar Tournquist incorporated Adventure game elements into a MMORG.

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If no, please explain why:

Whilst I liked many things in the game I didn't like the lack of fluidity in the flow of combat animations nor the lack of weight and impact in said combat.I liked the Investigation missions but felt they weren't a large enough part of the game to warrant getting it for and I didn't liek the PvP at all.But mostly I didn't like the business model which was the final nail int he coffin,everything else I could of overlooked.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Guild Wars 2, and Raiderz.I like the World of Guild Wars 2 and exploring it,I like the classes and weapons,I like the PvP and Dungeons.I play Raiderz because of the combat system and monster designs.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

 I only post when I tihnk I cna answer a question or have soemtihng to contribute,I have stated my opinions of the game in a few threads where appropriate and don't feel the need to repeat them over and over.I mostly jsut read this subforum to see if things have changed enough to make em want to dip my toe into TSW's waters again.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes. Because it struck me as a good game, even when considering its flaws.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes

 

If yes, please explain why:

I have been mainly drawn to TSW because of its story-telling, which for me, is a critical part of my decission making on what makes a game worth playing for me. There have been exceptions to this (e.g. Rift - a great game with poor story telling IMO). I also enjoyed the setting, a modern day horror, mixed with conspiracy etc. I have also found the customer service to be excellent, and the content release rate also to be excellent. The fixing of bugs has been at a consistent pace, which I find makes it easier to tolerate the flaws the game launched with. I like the direction the game is heading in, and am quite satisfied if this game stabilises with a 200k-300k population.

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

TSW - as explained

Rift - I want to support Trion, a very rare thing for me, supporting companies. Their behaviour with Rift and its player communities should make a number of other MMO companies hang their heads in collective shame.

STO - I enjoy the Star Trek environment, and I like a game where progression through combat is not necessarily the core path to levelling.

DDO - Was a AD&D table-top player right through my youth, so I occasionally drop into this game for a bit of nostaglia.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I don't post all too often, usually only in game forums where I can offer something constructive and where I know the Devs are saying they are reading. Sometimes I post to correct outright misrepresentations about games, which is fairly prolific.

Yes, i got an Beta invite due to having a funcom account but it didn't take.

B2P change and burnout from other MMO

EvE - Community and pvp gameplay

SWToR - Bunch of low level chars playing for the story

LotRO - LTA, playing for the story and group content, competing with my SWToR time

TSW - Story and setting, new to the game so its fresh

My posting more or less corresponds to the game im currently active in. If i play TSW i post in TSW forums, if i play EvE i post in eve forums etc.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes.  Funcom.  Illuminati (ironically I now play a Dragon).  Lots of mystery in the world and they seemed fun.  Tried to get into beta and just couldn't.  Too many issues early on.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

B2P.  It lets me play at my pace.  If I WANT DLC, I'll buy it. 

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Planetside 2 (FPS) , EQ2 (story/free), TSW (B2P, good story), GW2 (I only keep this installed for guild stuff), Rift (I love/support Trion, I still think this was a pretty darned solid game, lots of positives).  I normally keep 1 P2P title and B2P/F2P comes on an as needed basis.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

 I answer peoples questions.  I think having a fair input helps to make choices easier.  Sometimes you find someone with a similar perspective.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Read an article in PC Gamer, and as a longtime tabletop Call of Cthulhu player, was immediately interested.  The talk about investigation missions and needing to use my head (I'm an old time Myst player, too) made it a must buy.  Signed up for the beta and playing ever since.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yep.

If yes, please explain why:

Love the investigation missions and the modern-day setting -- nice break from fantasy, as much as I like that genre.  Also a huge fan of the class-free, level-free system, and the ability wheel -- infinite flexibility there.  I love that I can play it at my own pace, and don't feel the need to rush through things.  It doesn't feel grindy, and so far it feels as if the progression is mostly horizontal after reaching maximum gear quality level.  The community is great -- lots of mature, friendly people.  Also seeing the potential of a more sandboxy direction with the RP elements (Albion Theater, nightclub and pubs...)

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

  • TSW: It's now my main (see above)
  • LOTRO: Love the feel of the world and the landscapes.  Storylines are strong there as well.
  • AoC: Just starting out with this -- old time Conan fan, and want to try a grittier fantasy setting.  Heard good things about story
  • GW2: Enjoy the art as well as some of the new systems in that game -- some new ideas in the fantasy setting there
  • WoW: Mostly because friends are there, though my play time has greatly decreased.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I enjoy discussion about this game I like, and also clear up misperceptions or give help to those who are getting started.  Nice to just talk gaming in general!

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  Yes, because it looks gorgeous and I liked what I saw/read. The combat mechanics are fun, the "leveling" is cool, and the dungeons are spectacular. The story is awesome.

Do you currently play this game?: Yes.

 

If yes, please explain why: Because it's now B2P for mere 22€ on Steam.

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  Only TSW.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? Heh, nothing. I just saw this post on the front page.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

"But it was so artistically done..." - Grand Admiral Thrawn's final words

12/24/12 6:29:20 PM#80

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

I was very interested way before TSW came out - templars, Illumiati - the settings of game were drawing me in, but then I've heard about SWTOR and all my interest shifted.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

I joust bought it on Amazon. I did not want to get it before when it was sub, knowing that I am not going to spend a lot of time there as I am still pretty much SWTOR addict. When it want B2P though I did not hesitate. I am currently playing as my second MMO.

 

If yes, please explain why:

As a story based MMO lover... it was an obvious choice.

 

If no, please explain why:

N/A

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

SWTOR - obviously for story and SW.  Besides I found out that it feels very intuitive to me and I am having fun.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I post only on forums of games that I like to play. And so far I enjoy TSW very much - some of the investigation missions are amazing. I do not like to be negative and a little bit of positive attitude is what these forums need the most.
