I'd like to see DarkFall's updates to PvE and maybe join you/others in a group of noobs checking out the game. I played the trial for a day before and really liked it I was just all alone and didn't know what to do.

I'd love to come back to Darkfall, tbh (and I probably will anyway if it doesn't win, lol). Tell your friends to vote, or post on the Darkfall boards, or both.

I should clarify, I'll probably resub on my own time if it doesn't win, I'll of course bow to the wishes of the CMA electorate for the next six weeks. :p

If only DF had some extra love with its U.I.
I really want to like the game but I just can't get over the 1st person akward interface.

+1 DF.

The UI is a bit lacking from my experience (though it was only a day of play). I have read that some time in 2010 they are supposed to overhaul it.

I haven't really followed Choose My Adventure much, do you allow others to join you as you play(more so than just random grouping/questing)?

Sure, anyone can play along, we'll group or do whatever. This is my first time doing the column so I'll figure it out as I go. Past columns have gone down the winning game's progression path as far as they could in six weeks, and offered a couple of set play sessions per week.

I'll probably do that too, as well as log in and play at odd times when my schedule permits it. You'll be able to friend my main character as his info will be part of an upcoming column entry.

Now, if a PvP-centric game like Darkfall or EVE wins out, and I end up getting ganked for six hours straight, I'll probably roll a less public character in order to actually get to play the game enough to write about it. Who knows, maybe a bunch of newbs will band together to fight off the hordes. Anything can happen really, it's up to you guys as far as that goes.

My vote goes for "Hello Kitty Online".

I noticed it was missing from the list but figure since Massively has chosen to report on it, they should be forced to play it :)

I'd really like to see someone play FFXIV for the first time. I can't believe all the people who say it's so frustrating.

I picked Eve Online just because that game was a real struggle for me to get into. Never really figured it out.

Be interesting to see the introduction to the game documented.

Ryzom is in a REALLY good place right now. I'm envious of an actual beginner.

If you get FFXIV, come to Rabanastre Server!

Darkfall's a good choice. I never got into it, but I'd be interested in someone else's experience with it.

As I've said for each of the last four "what next" votes: Wurm. Yet still it's not even on the list.

Why WoW and EVE but not Wurm, Vindictus, Tale in the Desert, or some other game that mainstream MMG players aren't familiar with? We all know how WoW and EVE play; it's like offering to share recipes for Jell-O.

Vindictus is pretty mainstream (much moreso than EVE at any rate), everybody and their dog is playing it. In my personal opinion, it's also not an MMORPG nor very interesting, which is why I didn't include it.

I'm with on WURM and ATITD though, it's been awhile since I've played either and they'll be on the next vote if I'm still on the column (we do pass it amongst the writers though, so no guarantees).
