For what it's worth, Elder Scrolls Online is looking pretty awesome.
I haven't played an MMO hardcore for a couple of years now. But I lost over 2 years of my life to EVE Online. I played that game for several hours every day and it would not be unusual to lose about 12 hours a day playing, sometimes!
I also tried Lord of the Rings Online, Age of Conan, and World of Warcraft. But they all sort of felt similar and were not as addicting as EVE was.
I would really like to try the Elder Scrolls MMO. Elder Scrolls Oblivion and Skyrim were my two favorite games on the Xbox and the only games I ever got perfect 1000 scores in achievements.
I also loved the Knights of the Old Republic games and would be up for playing that MMO, as well.
I just don't know if I have time now with a new job starting. That's really the whole thing about MMOs - they will usually suck up your life!

I use to play WoW, played it since 2006, but the raiding 3-4 days a week just got very very old. Sitting in vent for 2-3 hours listening to nerds talk about their nerd days didn't help either.
I'm a sandbox kinda guy. I can't do the themparks. You guys should check out The Repopulation if you haven't heard of it, it will release sometime this year. Wildstar also looks like it may be OK..although..it's a themepark.
Probably going to have to wait until EQ Next for what I personally want. I grew up playing UO though so I'm not really into the whole raiding/dungeon stuff. I'm used to more freedom of choices and open world.
planetside 2 here. play on connery. so much potential in this game...........
WoW is only time consuming if you raid (or if you haven't gotten to max-level yet), & personally I think PvE is pretty lame.
I exclusively PvP & I doubt I log more than 2 hours a week on WoW.
My Funniest MMO story.
I was at my buddies house one night and we proceeded to get hammered. I passed out and he apparently went online to play eve but blacked out.
The next morning he woke up...
"WTF!!! My dude is sitting in an escape pod and all my credits are gone."
Now I know nothing about eve online and I am sure the explanation is pretty mundane, but it is funny to imagine him blowing all his money on internet space hookers or something.
