I am very VERY sad to say... None of them.

Cataclysm - no more WoW, sorry been there done that for too long

TOR - Going for so much mass appeal it will dumbed down to the least common denominator of human intelligence

Earthrise - Too much PvP focus and I can't stand the audience that PvP games attract. I'm still holding some hope, but not much.

Mortal Online - Underdeveloped and again, too much PvP focus

STO - Losing faith in Cryptic and too many load screens

GW2 and FFXiV - Don't do cutesy childlike Asian themes. Can't stand that style.

There are a few games that *might* get good, but there is just no concrete info out yet like Heroes of Telara and the 38 Studios game. APB might be fun for a few weeks, but I don't think its a keeper.

I guess I'll settle in with Fallen Earth and wait out the next year.

CoH:GR will have to tide me over until GW2 is a bit less distant.

Star Trek Online. The level of customization just sounds ridiculous and the fact that I get my own ship with its own crew is just too awesome to not pick up. The Old Republic looks cool but I think the only reason I’m pumped for it is because Bioware is involved. The fact that there’s only four classes(two of which are jedi/sith) kind of underwhelms me.

ToR, GW2 and DCU no doubt if they come out in 2010. Carbine has a game that has peaked my interest and it has been under wraps for quite a while. Doubt it will make 2010 but I will probably try it since they have hired some very talented people to design and write the game. I will try the AoC expansion as well. After the Cryptic and CO pains, I won't try STO until 2011 and only if it gets great reviews with good player retention.

Star Trek Online, then Star Wars: The Old Republic. These look like games I could get in to.

That is, of course, if I can pry myself away from Mass Effect 2 long enough...

I am really looking forward to SW:TOR. I believe they are doing a good job at marketing the game. I have been participating in the community a lot and it is very anxious and active. I have noticed that the majority of the community wants to roleplay to some extent. Since the focus of this game is story, when you couple that with a fantastic community looking to add their own elements to the story, I think we will have a fun game. Everyone seemed to think that WAR was going to be fantastic and when it came out it sucked. But, I believe that it can work both ways. So, it should have just as much of a chance as the rest of the games. I know some of the nuts and bolts that have been displayed so far are not quite promising.(The classes + their roles in combat) But it could easily be remedied. Vanilla WoW was a COMPLETELY different game then WoTLK. So, we need to expect the evolution of this design to ripen with time. I'm willing to give it that time and pioneer that world. I hope you will all join me and give TOR the benefit of the doubt.

Just remember that community before a game's launch is usually 5 times better then the one you get after launch. In cases like AoC it's two completely different beasts.

I'm playing a wait and see game. While I'm not one of the people who is prematurely picking the game to pieces I think it is EXTREMELY ambitious possibly over ambitious.

Because of that I'm also not getting prematurely excited about the game, I think outright dismissing it is dumb, but acting like it is going to be the "Holy Grail" of mmos is dumber.

Not planning on buying any new MMOs next year until they've been out for a while and proved they're worth the money.

I will be picking up CoH: Going Rogue though. Beyond that, I got nothin'.

My top answer, sadly, is the same as last year's: Jumpgate. I doubt Black Prophesy will release in 2010 given the financial issues Reakktor suffered this year, and aside from that only APB intrigues me.

STO
FFXIV
Heroes of Telara
STOR: if it launches next year
Any and all expansions for EQ2, LOTRO, WoW

Well.... That is the million dollar question, and I thought 2009 was the year of the MMO, pfft 2010 looks really yummy too.

My main one is FF14 as a huge FF fan, we're getting spoiled this year getting all our FF fix in one fell swoop. (FF13, versus, crystal chronicles ect..)

I have a lot of misgivings about TOR but I'm VERY curious about this one for sure.

The Secret World is also something to keep an eye on.

DC Online, a more modern super hero game by Sony? Yes please!!

The Agency? Is that coming out this year?

Oh Dude! Yes Heroes of Telara, though I have doubts it'll come out in 2010, I'll guesstimate late 2011..

APB, SW:TOR and FFXIV, that's about it.

Not getting my hopes up with STO, however JGE might turn our to be interesting.

ST:O, APB, FFXIV (I think that's the right number), Mortal Online.

ST:O, Because I'm a trekky.
APB, Because it looks amazing.
FFXIV, Because I'm ready for a new fantasy style MMO.
Mortal Online, because I really like the idea of a sandbox mmo.

Now if only would could have a fantasy/sci-fi/crime based/sandbox mmo. I'd be in heaven.

You know what I mean; elves with lazer beemz, stealing cars, while griefing his teammates whom he just killed.

Mass Effect 2 should hold me over for a good while. I interested in seeing how APB turns out, I hope it winds up being a big surprise for RP and PvPers. Hopefully all of those will hold me over till 2011 when hopefully SWTOR will be ready for launch sometime that year.
