I have never played an MMO, but when Age of Conan comes to 360 in 2008 I'm trying it out. This has been one of my most anticipated titles for about a year now.

While I don't like WoW, I actuall don't think that WoW players are tired of WoW.
I personally got tired of it in less than an hour and really didn't understoon why people love it so much BUT to those WoW players, WoW is like Counter Strike to Counter Strike players, Quake 3 to Quake 3 players, StarCraft to StarCraft players and I can understand why those games are so loved. I still love and play them and never get tired of CS, Q3 and SC. With new content and expansion pack, I'm pretty sure WoW players aren't tired of it either.

I am getting tired of world of warcraft too. I have decided though that i
will not start another one until something comes out for the ps3. Hopefully ncsoft comes up with something decent aion would be nice but not likely. I just don't understand why soe cant crank something out or at least port something over. with keyboard and mouse support you wouldn't even need to change the control scheme.

Lawl at WoW. I quit a year ago and never had the urge to come back. Raiding was sapping my life away :(.
