    Well, for console, Id try demon's soul. For online, cash was trying an online game. There is always DF if you can live with the intense grind, and uneven playing field. There are also other sources of UO out there I cant speak of, but populations are high elsewhere. If you wanna play single player PC, maybe try the original Ultima Underworlds (I and II), that the SA expansion was based around. Though they require dos box to run.

    When I play my XBox 360 it's usually Fallout 3 or Rock Band 2.

    Online....Eve and UO have basically been it for me. (You mention any FB games and i keel you!)

    Don't really play any offline games on the PC.... ...well since I got bored with Spore.

    Were still around, in a new guild.

    But other MMO's, i really think theres nothing out there right now better than ultima. The Upcoming Star Wars MMO looks awesome!
     
  7. Im not saying (quit UO)but if you want to take a break try fallout 3.

    Battlefield Hero`s, best browser game I`ve ever played. FPS

    Battleforge is also a pretty cool game, also free. RTS

    I`m a fan of racing sims as well,started with Rfactor but now I race in Arca 08. Both great games.

    Offline I break the monotony with my Medal of Honor series. Damn man,with my headset on,the bullets flying and ricocheting,your guys barking orders. Its freekin intense.

    When all that fails, I usually log back into UO to see my vendor at Ginsu`s emptied w00t! :thumbup1:

    Which reminds me........

    If you want a better break, try Fallout 1 & 2.

    Are you purely looking for PC games, or have any consoles? Only want 'new' games, or can you enjoy the older classics?

    Fallout 3 is hard stuff man....

    I was hooked for over 6 months... I visited every area, did every single quest and replayed about 3 times, I want MOAR!

    Buy it on PC! Always! The mod community is amazing.

    Mortal online looks amazing but they have alot to add to the game. It could be very awesome. The landscape is beautiful. Last I logged in, they still didnt really have mobs yet, mostly just awesome terran.

    Fallout new vegas is in the works....

    Been wanting to try left for dead 2 but everytime I get on steam I play team fortress 2...

    Mass effect and dragonage dont really do it for me, which is weird since I love story but they are a bit slow...

    Assassins creed 2 is freaking amazing, not nearly as long or in depth as fallout but its so addicting me and my wife got into a fight over the controller...

    Theres alot more on my radar right now but il leave that be.

    Mass Effect will forever be an Elevator Riding Sim in my mind.

    Dragon Age was a lot like a great game, only without the fun.

    Assassin's Creed 2 was a lot of fun, until you realize that countering with the hidden blades = I win vs. 20+ guys.

    Eve Online.

    Roughly 30k players all on the same server at most times of the day. Full PvP, , pirating, looting, adventuring and even mission running. It's a game with a huge learning curve, but once you get it down, (for me) there's no turning back...la

    Old nes games , first final fantasy , the dragon warrior series . baseball stars (makin a super team with pitchers that hit homers are fun), like 4 different fun boxing games on it. Also this RL thing is a good substitute although I heard its over-rated.....

    Darkfall

    And whoever said anything about a massive grind, doesn't understand the game or even know what they're talking about.

    To be competitive (as a bare bones melee/archer)

    75+ in 2 hand weapon mastery
    75+ in 1 hand weapon mastery
    75+ in sharp shooter
    100 lesser magic
    100 greater magic
    75 witchcraft (don't even need witchcraft really... Witches Brew got nerfed)
    30 spell chanting

    and your character is competitive. It takes 1 month roughly to get this done. Considering we've all played Siege and know all about RoT.. that should be a cake walk for anyone in here.

    Now if you want it all. Every skill maxed, everything gotten... yeah, it's one helluva grind.

    But remember... the grind in damn near every game I can think of has been worse. How many times did we all re-train our character skills in UO before soul stones? How long did it take to GM magic resist, magery, etc. before Powerhour. How many games constantly raise the ceiling on how high your skills can go (adding more grind to the already grinding your doing?)

    Mortal Online sucks. Stam management in that game sucks. PvP and movement is stupid and on top of that... too slow. Not to mention flavor of the month ****... no thanks.

    Otherwise... buy a PS3 or 360.

    I will say though... that this game is brutal (much like Siege used to be) and if Siege was packed... the same people pancakes about an uneven playing field would see that Siege... was the same damn thing (before the playing field left.)

    In my entire time of playing MW2 I think its like 10 days of game time, I haven't heard anybody complain about something they haven't already fixed or how they got molested by a certain gun. (Most of those aren't glitches) Good game ^^

    You can always try being Johnny Dep in the Pirates game, on your lil Nintendo. Course lately all I am doing is getting him exterminated atm, in lev. 1 or 2. LOL And if ya do not like him, getting him killed on a puny Nintendo sized, one person shooter game, can be fun too ! :)

    That all sounds really nice the only thing i think darkfall needs now is a forum of their own because why are you here so much if you play darkfall?

    Yes you can compete with those numbers, but others who have been on for near a year now, are gonna have HP way over yours with those skills at that level. Since there is no ceiling in sight for that game, the ones who dont work, or macro (which they are pretty strict on) will always be ahead. Skill counts for somethings, but when they got 150HP over you, its gonna be tough

    The way I look at it is that it is kinda like eating a steak (character development.)

    Where in games like UO, WoW, SWG and so on... they have cut up the steak into itty bites that people can handle (much like mommy used to do for those that didn't know how to tackle it.) So instead of 10 characters with 10 different templates that cover the variety of playstyles and aspects of the game... you get one.

    Now since DF has taken a unique, new approach (no skill caps) people for some reason have trouble wrapping their heads around the concept. If you know what you're doing and what you're going after... it's a cake walk. If you're clueless... well it seems like an endless grind.

    Also your talk about stats. By the time your competitive with the skills I listed... you should be 270-300HP, 300+stam and 200-250mana (depending on your specializations)

    Oh and before I forget... Darkfall is now offering free trials (well... they are for 1 dolla) go check it out!

    I tried Dark Fall. Played for 1 month of the 6 I payed for. Still got time left on the account but it truly is a boring grind. Not that theres isnt fun stuff to do but the hight of my day on DF was when i was done playing so i could AFK swim to truly level my skills quickly.

    Other than that ive been playing WoW. *DUCKS*

    Im not saying that the unlimited skill is a bad thing. Not too different from our SS. However they gotta cap stats. Because as time goes on, your competative template keeps getting longer and longer to obtain. Atleast if the cap stats, you wont end up with your 300HP vs 700HP

    Stats are capped...

    100 (with certain skills you can buy 110.)

    110 is pretty much the cap for all stats. HP has a cap of 450 buffed and 400-420? unbuffed as I understand it.

    Skills are important... the few I mentioned are a great combination for melee/archer. There are some who do melee/mage and others who do hybrid.

    And we're on the Siege forums. Who here doesn't have experience with RoT. It can take you anywhere from 1 month to 3 months to make a competitive character.

    It's an MMO after all. Picture Siege, but with better graphics, the most skill based PvP of any MMO and way more people. :)


    PS. YAY UO too. I still play, but siege needs some more competition before i come back.

    PvE is boring?! The games got the best AI of any I've seen. Or were you farming bushes, trees n **** thinking you needed high stats (cause you AFK swam for them.)

    PM me in game (and here with your char name) and I will set you up where you can train in peace efficiently for a few weeks and be ready for the real world.

    Its not new, but my guilds version of it... ;)

    I agree with draxous on everything said about Darkfall except for the 1 month to have a competitive character.

    i've been playing like 6 weeks and i've got 2 of the things on his list and VERY close to another 3 of them, plus i have an elemental magic up to 75.

    Depends on clan your in, who's helping you and your experience. I guarantee you if you started over after playing for as long as you have... you'd be doing everything you did faster.

    The 1 month thing is the quickest. If it takes you longer than 3 you're either a really casual gamer or you're doing something wrong.

    I have decent skills for my time spent. Was just boring as hell getting those skills up. Killing trolls for hours on end, using the regs off them to level magic, then using swords archery till i reupped regs. I want something mroe than killing trolls all day. The clan did do fun stuff but it wasnt productive to level up.

    Face it if the game was going to take off it would have already. For only having 2 servers you should by now constantly be seeing population. They have alot of work to do to make the game interesting enough for the masses to want to play.

    I understand your defence of the game. Its the same defence alot of us have for the dead star we call SP. DF just didnt burn as hot or will as long.

    Honestly Drax i had high hopes for the game. But just because the monsters run the opposite direction my arrow is going doesnt make it more intertaining to me. In other games the words "miss" pop over head when this happens. I wish i had more interest in the game but i dont want to waste a month(s) leveling up when i dont even find it interesting. Usualy just the reward of getting the skills maxed out is a rush enough for me to grind in a game, for some reason in DF it is simply to monotonous for me.

    I don't agree here and I'm well aware of the short-falls of the game. If you truly love this type of game (what Siege Perilous is at heart) then you'll love DF.

    I won't argue tastes, but you've got a lot of misconceptions in your post. Either way, I hope you find a game you love.

    Ive been playing the 1 dollar DF trial since friday, reminds me of morrowind, apparently with the influx of noobs on the trial lots of clans are recruiting. So far so good although the game is a bit of grind for gaining skills and Im concerned that I can NEVER catch up with the long term players cause there is no skill cap but it seems like group battles and ganks are the normal not 1v1. Right now I just pick off goblins with archery and some mana missiles and have been given a few suits of scale and chain by the newb clan that picked me up and once I have some decent archery and my noob timer is over I can start helping out.
