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

Do you currently play this game?: No

If yes, please explain why: N/A

If no, please explain why:  At the time was no sub, soon I will buy it from B2P business model conversion. The sub was not worth it for me since the games combat just bothered me for some reason, too static anf repetitive for the setting I think.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: GW2 (Actively) , WoW (Trying to force myself to enjoy it again for my friends sake...not going too well)

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I am only posting here because of this specific question, I do not usually post in here or have to my knowledge. Although if I played the game I would frequent it more often.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Yes, I played AoC after the initial buggy release and fell in love with the awesome storyline, dungeons, and mechanics of Funcom's game.

Do you currently play this game?:  Yes I do.

 

If yes, please explain why: The game has hands down the best storyline I have ever played in any MMORPG and I have played a ton.  The storyline is immersive, and quests are the best in any game.  I like the thinking that is involved with the game as well. I do hope more sandbox elements can make it into the game though.

If no, please explain why: N/A

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: EVE Online (Sandbox features), The Secret World (Best Quests/Storyline of any MMORPG), Diablo 3 (I love ARPG's although this one isn't good its really the only modern one out). 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  I'm tired of shitty games like Guild Wars 2 that are boring and uneventful, I try to promote TSW for its uniqueness, awesome storyline, and great voice acting.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  Followed it from the first time I heard about it because it sounded so different - like a cross between URU and MXO.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes I do and have since beta

If yes, please explain why:

It is fun, I have to think, I enjoy figureing the investigative missions out, I am intrigued with the ability wheel and how I can make my builds fit my play style better.

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: This is the only one I am playing at the moment but I still have WOW and GW on my machine to peek in if I choose to.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I rarely post or read forums  unless I am looking for something specific.

    Yes. I've always been a fan of Lovecraft, X-Files and conspiracy theory type of storylines.
 
Do you currently play this game?:
     Yes. Monthly subscriber, having fun with the End of the World event (Die Mayan zombie, die!)
If yes, please explain why:
   I was a long time World of Warcraft subscriber and got fed up with that game during the aftermath of Cataclysm. I played SW:TOR for three months and was so bored that I quit that game. I played Star Trek Online until they went all money-grab and botched the Season 7 roll-out because they didn't listen to widespread player concerns. So, I was looking for a new MMO and I tried out TSW, even before it went B2P. I like the game and with the decent perks for subscribers, I think I'll stick with it for the foreseeable future.
 
If no, please explain why:
  N/A
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
   See above. TSW is the only game I'm actively playing at the minute. I canceled my subscription to Star Trek Online after Season 7 was released.

   First post in this forum, just saw the TSW in the "recent post" box and curiosity caused me to check out the poll.

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

No, because it was made by Funcom, a company that has never released an MMORPG that lived up to its potential, their inability to care about the players enough to listen, their inability to fix bugs and make updates in a short amount of time.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.


If yes, please explain why:

With Funcom I always wait 5-6 months for them to get the game in playing order, they also dropped the sub AND I found it on sale on Amazon for $17.99

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

GW2, Runes of Magic, SWTOR, TSW...because none of them has subs and I have guildmates that still play them.

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

Cause im sick of playing the game and need a break...or im at work.

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

I'm not a heavy 'gamer' but I do enjoy MMOs despite a busy schedule mainly because of the online interaction with people. I met some really neat folks from the Middle East and Europe through my first online game, EQ2. I got a bit tired of EQ2 though and so was looking for something to replace it.

 

I played Star Wars the Old Republic and enjoyed it, but it seemed like every week I was being forced onto a new server and was losing all of my social connections and having to start from scratch. That got very frustrating.

 

So When I heard that The Secret World was all on one server and was set in the modern day I became intrigued enough to look more closely at it. I started doing the betas and, despite being a little rough around the edges, I also saw a lot of opportunity. That is was based on horror like Anne Rice was the real deal sealer for me. I haven't played anything else since those first beta days and most likely won't till I'm either one tired of it or two something like World of Darkness comes out.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

 

I do. Full time stay at home mom so my available hours fluctuate. My husband and I share an account. It would be great to play together, but not really possible due to one of our children being special needs. On a good week I may get four or five hours to play.

If yes, please explain why:

 

I'll admit that many of the mechanics of the game are a bit over my head. I have a lot of guides printed out that explain combat and actives and passives, etc. but have yet to have the time to actually read them lol :). Still, I LOVE the art. Kingsmouth is like a beautifully haunting interactive painting. I LOVE that fashion is a huge element of the game. Sometimes I'll log onto one of my characters and just kill zombies - that alone is very cathartic after a taxing day.

If no, please explain why:

 

Time constraints sometimes mean I will go a week or so without being able to play.

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

 

Right now I am only playing TSW. I would love a game like it based off of The Walking Dead or some other social-heavy game that was set in the modern day. World of Darkness looks very promising but is likely years away from being made. 

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

I like seeing new outfits and screenshots, and the official forums make this difficult (you can only post links). TSW's community is, for the most part, a very mature and friendly one be they here, at the main site, or somewhere else. So I enjoy talking with other players, seeing what is new, and hopefully learning how to play better.

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

Yes. I usually keep up with the news regarding all videogames, especially RPG's. This caught my attention because the setting was a bit different than the other MMOs in the target, it also looked really good. I didn't read much more about the game at the time though, and I promised myself I would never touch an MMO in my life since WoW in 2005 (too much time consuming) so I only bought the game when it went from subscription to B2P.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes

If yes, please explain why:
Well, I only started playing a few weeks ago so there's no reason to not be playing it, as there's still a lot of content I've experienced yet. But I'm really enjoying it and I see myself playing it for a long time. I bought a copy for my girlfriend and we've been playing together, it's a lot of fun.
 
Mind you that it's the first MMO my girlfriend has ever played, and it's not a game that is very "noob friendly", still she is loving it, that has got to mean something regarding the quality of the game. I bought it for 23£ on steam and I'm very surprised at the amount of content we got for such a price. Even if we play it just for the story (like a regular Single player/Co-op game), and abandon it after that, it will be WELL worth it, much more "bang for your buck" than any SP game could possibly give you.
 

If no, please explain why:

 

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

This is the only MMO I'm playing. But it has re-kindled my interest in the genre again. I may be picking up some other MMOs after I get bored with this one.

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

Well, it's my first post ever in the forums (not just this particular subforum), I just recently found out about this site and registered.

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

Yes. The modern setting and the ARG components were interesting and different from what I'd seen before.

Do you currently play this game?:

No but considering starting again as I did purchase the game at release.

If yes, please explain why:

N/A

If no, please explain why:

Busy with other games, some online and some offline single player.

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

SWTOR: It's free and I have a few friends who are still active in the game.

Age of Wushu: Dabbling in the beta.

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

Very interested. The setting, the storytelling, the ARG, the skill based system...

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

Basically, the storyline, the setting, the RP feeling, and the community (when I want  PvP, which means to have to accept a 12 years old community mentality, and yes, sometime I want it, I go to play the best PvP ever, Call of Duty, on MMORPG I search for imersion, not e-peen contest)

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

DC Universe, for fast and fun (PvP with the 12 year old mentality, when I am not in the mood for CoD)

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

I dont come very often in here, but sometimes I come to see the news and feel the temperature of the gamie outside the official forum

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

I was interested in the subject matter and followed the game, but due to time constraints upon its release, I opted to not buy the game. I already had existing subscriptions to other games, as well.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

It dropped the subscription model and only required the game purchase, so I figured why not.

If no, please explain why:

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

RIFT: Was a founding member prior to launch, and quite enjoyed it. However, my computer at the time couldn't handle the game that well, so I canceled my subscription. I've since bought a new computer, and the game has also gone free-to-play, so I went back to it.

World of Warcraft: I play it on and off; my subscription is still ongoing. When I'm bored, or don't feel like one of the other games, I'll hop onto it.

Guild Wars 2: A friend played the original and spoke highly of it, so I decided to buy it. It didn't hold me as long, but I pop on now and then when I want something different.

Age of Wushu: Downloaded and created a character, just haven't had time to get into it, so I have no opinion on this title.

The Secret World: Just started playing, the subject matter and adult themes is what drew me to it originally.

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

I rarely post on the forums here, but since I just started The Secret World, I came to see how healthy the game was.

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

Definitely. Followed it from the day of its announcement. I was interested because the setting was very intriguing to me... a true take on "the normal, made strange". I'm a big fan of anything to do with the supernatural, conspiracy theories or urban myths and legends. A game built around that concept is a no-brainer; I'm interested.

That it was the brain child of Ragnar Tornquist, of whom I was already a fan, I knew that - at the very least - there would be a detailed world, excellent story, believable, interesting characters, superb writing and - at the least - above average voice acting. It's a trademark of his.

I was also intrigued because, regardless of their reputation, FC is one of the few developers out there who truly tries new things, rather than taking the "safe path" of "sticking to what's popular".

Do you currently play this game?:

Yep!

If yes, please explain why:

For my money, they've delivered on just about everything I expected out of the game.  The world is immersive, atmospheric, disturbing and yet believable. The characters are varied, interesting, well written, have depth and are well voice-acted, pretty much across the board.

The game is challenging. I can't overstate how much I appreciate that FC doesn't feel the need to "coddle" me (or other players) by dumbing things down, holding my hand every moment, and spelling everything out - leaving me with nothing more to do than "connect the dots". Where most other MMOs make me feel almost like a passive spectator in what's happening to my character, TSW brings me into the equation, and makes me an active participant. Even with the tutorials and quest markers present, the game still demands a lot of the player in terms of thinking, problem-solving, researching, testing things out, etc.

FC respects my intelligence as a gamer and isn't afraid to challenge me. That alone goes a long way with me.

If no, please explain why:  n/a

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

I currently picked up Vanguard again. I picked it up because, even given my love for the setting/world in TSW, I'm also a fan of High Fantasy. Vanguard provides an open, seamless world with tons to see and do. It comes the closest to an "old-school" experience of any other I've tried... even with the changes SOE's made to it. An "old-school" MMO is something I miss when I don't have one to play.

Decided to pick up Neverwinter, just to check it out, as some people in my Cabal in TSW are playing it and it sounds like it could be a fun distraction to kick around in from time to time. It's from PWE - whose games and heavy-handed MTs I have a history with - so I won't be investing much in it, time or money-wise.

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

Well, I just returned to TSW, so that's a key reason for me to be posting here. I have an active, vested interest in what's being discussed :). I haven't posted much in here when I wasn't playing since, even though I was following the game's development, if I'm not actively playing it, I don't feel I have much to contribute, unless the topic is about what people thought of the game when they have played it.
