Pff i dont like the fact you have to pay monthly for those online rpgs. I nearly bought world of warcraft until finding out you need to pay to play. If they were free I'd probably have final fantasy 11 anyway.

Well, i recommend Guild Wars then. It has some of the best graphics I have seen in an mmorpg and it is going to be free to play. All you need to do is buy the game.
Life is like a rose garden, all you feel are the thorns.
Online RPGs suck. It's full of overenthusiastic kids with too much time, no life, and lots of money who spend their whole lives online getting their characters to ridiculously high levels.
Blizzard's also getting some very heavy bias just because some of their older games were revolutionary. The new ones (WoW, WC3) are sadly lacking in gameplay.
Long live free MUDs!

I have WoW and I'm really enjoying it. I'm not a "level 87564235628762758257 über killer lord" or anything. Im like level 25 and I play here and there. It did take a lot of convincing for me to get the game from my girlfriend though. So much that she just ended up getting it for me for some occasion. Basically I still agree with cybermaze. Theres a lot of stuff still to be done with this growing genre. There could definitely be a lot more interactivity.
I would be really interested in a sort of Animal Crossing MMORPG. Like each server would be a different town and a bunch of people actually live in each town at the same time. People can choose to mess up the town if they want or to find these people and report them. One of the coolest things though would be if you can actually design your own patterns and be able to sell them to other players. Things like that which bring out ACTUAL talents and proffessions that people have in real life. That would be a real step. Also, getting to know other players would be interesting. To have to live in the same community and getting to know whos who and what personality everyone really has.
A big part of this idea would be that whatever wrong people do like designing obscene patterns or extreme swearing could be resolved inside the game. Someone can report it to an administrator who is actually in the game and it can become a part of the game itself. Punishment wouldnt be banning or anything. I could be fines for game money or something proggressively worse like being kicked out of your own house.
Ha, now that I think of it, there could even be a trial in which you come to a sort of courthouse in the game and can even hire someone to present your case who might actually have qualities of a lawyer. Basically, unique skills would be a huge part of the game.
Anyway, sorry for the long post but I kinda got into it. I talked alot about crime and stuff but thats just a part of my idea. The game wouldnt all have to do with that. You can go off and think of other things about this. I would really just like to see lots of people skills.
This curse is more cursedly curse-worthy than any curse that's ever cursed you!
Ive played both and now only play EQ2, WoW is good but if you over the age of 14 its a bit boring, EQ2 seems to have amuch older community and to be honest i hate having forced conversation about school and how "a mate of some guy scored with this chick for like the second time" so i kinda stick with EQ2. plus the little XP bar split int 10% is another major reason.
