I loved KOTOR, the original one. I remember playing it back in 2001 thinking "God imagine if this game was an online game, how awesome would that be" Then 2 years later SWG came out. At first I was amazed by SWG, but after about 2 years of that in 2005, SOE ruined the game by introducing a "revamp", then they ruined the game even more with another revamp a year after that called the NGE or something.
So after that I got into WoW and I've pretty much all but forgotten about star wars overall. But after almost 10 years...my old dreams of having a huge online KOTOR are finally coming true in about 9 weeks time. But I've got so much invested into WoW in the last 6 years that it's making me feel like I can't drop WoW for it.
I have a weird feeling towards SWTOR - On one hand I hope it is REALLY successful and an amazing fun game to play, but on the other hand I hope it fails and dies a miserable death like every other MMO so far. I hope it's something special because I don't want to quit WoW to play a medicore game, if I am going to drop WoW, it needs to be for a game that is simply amazing and makes me completely forget WoW even exists.
Do you think SWTOR can do that?
