I'm looking for a game that has awesome PvP in it. I have been playing Rift since launch and did a lot of PvP in Rift, but lately it's been super crap and nowhere near as good as what it once was, so i'm looking to situate my time and money elsewhere.
I used to play Diablo 2 for about 7 years (and counting) and did a lot of PVP in that game, which by far had the best PVP (in my opinion) - so if there's any games out there that function the same i'd love to hear about them.
I don't mind PvE also, and I can do both.
I would recomend dark souls it's a grate game with lore that needs to be discovered and won't be showed down your throat.
there is also a pvp aspect to the game which is quite different from what most players is used to i guess. You basically invade other players games in the form of a phantom. You can also summon other people into your game and have them help you with bosses etc. Be warned though, the PC port is bad and I would recomend playing the game with a gamepad.
I'm old. Not retired-old, but old enough that my reflexes aren't supersharp.
I love WoW, but the thought of gearing up another alt has me thinking of dropping my subscription, and I'm mostly just signing on three times a week to raid these days. So I need something to fill up my other hours.
I hate pvp, because I suck at it. Too much randomness, too many things to pay attention to.
I think I'd like to try another MMO. I tried SWTOR but it was buggy on my machine, animations felt horrible, and I never found a server community I liked. I tried Guild Wars but combat was too fast-paced and the cutscenes and voice acting bugged the heck out of me. I tried Rift and thought that the talent trees were bloated and wasn't comfortable with tanking. I tried and enjoyed LOTRO, but the climb up to endgame content seems very steep and it seems very alt-unfriendly. EVE just wasn't fun for me.
If I enjoyo an MMO, or even a single player game, I like to spend a lot of time not in the game reading the wikis and the forums. I like to think that even though the folks on my raid team are faster than me, I make up the difference by preparation. I'm the sort of person who will file detailed bug reports so I would probably be a decent beta candidate. I don't mind a buggy beta so long as the bugs I report show signs of being fixed. Occasionally.
I really do not like shooters. Slow reflexes make me quite bad at them.
So, is there a game out there for me?
You could try Tera, but it is one of those modern MMOs with action combat. It does have reasonably challenging PvE, but no raids.
You could try a popular single player like Dark Souls and Skyrim, of course.
On further thought, even if you do not like "shooters", maybe your best bet is Fallout 3. That certainly has depth and its no ordinary high octane shooter at all.

You may want to try The Secret World. The community isn't the biggest, but it's friendly and helpful. The dungeons are great and the quest experience pretty good too. There are cutscenes for most quests, but the dialogue is good and the voice acting is too; if you're not into that sort of thing, though, you may want to pass (they are skippable with ESC however). The game doesn't run very well some some computers; nVidia-based machines seem to handle it best.
This isn't a bad idea at all.You could try a popular single player like Dark Souls and Skyrim, of course.

Is there any MMO out there that has good PvP compared to WoW?
I'm looking for games where the storytelling is superb. Games that really makes you care about the characters and what happens to them.
Sadly I only have a PC so console games are not an option. However the genre doesn't really matter much as I can enjoy any game as long as the story is great. I do prefer RPG's over the rest though as they usually also have depth in gameplay.
Here are some example games just so you know what kind of quality I'm looking for and what I've already played:
Final Fantasy VI/VII/VIII/X
Mass Effect -trilogy
Assassin's Creed - all of them
Metal Gear Solid -all except the handheld games
Dragon Age - all of them
These are the best examples I could think of right now. And I realize that the standard is set pretty high but while I have played alot of games I'm sure I've missed hidden diamonds.
So fire away!
Planescape: Torment if you're willing to go for something really old.
I'm looking for a game, been searching for the last couple days in the interwebz, haven't found anything decent.
I like 'survival' type of games, where you have to craft stuff yourself. I really loved Terraria and minecraft for example, also enjoyed "Don't starve" alot. Looking for similiar games. I know starbound is coming soon, pre-ordered but what to do in the meantime .
I've played DayZ over 1000 hours.
Looking for something similiar to those games.
Been playing ALOT of different games, if you know more than one similiar to what i might be looking for please mention them all. Thanks in advance!
Lets see what we get.
I'm interested in a (preferably open world) real-time action RPG.
Skyrim's a good example, but I've utterly beat it into the floor and am looking for something hopefully higher paced.
I don't mind if it's online, so long as solo play is possible whenever I want.
Story is less important than solid, playable mechanics.
Things I like:
Flashy/over the top ability animations. (Like this, but RO is old news)
Dual Wielding. Particularly games that allow for high-paced dual wielding action. Dual 2h is a bonus, but not required.
Dodging/parrying/other skill based things. Demons/Dark souls is a good example of this, but that game is far too slow.
