The Old Republic, I'd like to say GuildWars2 as well but I have this feeling that's going to be a 2012 release.

NEW MMOs to play. Ones that won't make me go O.O? I paid for this crap?!

Starting with Rift. LOVED the Beta 3 this time around. Trion listens and is in this to make a fun game.

Next Earthrise. I need me some sandbox fun that isn't all about full loot psychomaniacs hiding behind an online avatar.

After that hopefully SWTOR which will probably suck me away to a galaxy far far away for the next 6 years (that's the time I was stuck in Azeroth, :D)

And then the big one to finish the year out, GW2.

A few small morsels here and there in the form of expansion packs for EQ2, Lotro, any other game I own and maybe some new games that weren't on my Radar or basically any MMO that launches. As my name suggests, I just can't ..... seem .... to .... stop.... playing MMOs!

Main one is TOR, for good old MMO on the rails fun.

Also interested in EarthRise, sci-fi based open world to dabble into.

And i'll probably pick up GW2 since it's BTP.

Of course i'll try ever FTP out there.

Let hope there are no more STO mistakes (Lifetime Sub, WHY!!!!!!!!!)

Can't wait to see the massive changes done to L2 at the end of 2011, when hopefully they launch CT3.

Anxious to see what direction Naoki Yoshida and the new FFXIV management take the game.

Also, Blade & Soul

Guild Wars 2, but I'm content to wait until it's done. Done properly. And done right.

I'm also quite surprised by RIFT. I didn't pay much attention to it, but it looks to be turning out quite the dark horse contender of 2011. Will be keeping an eye on its future betas and development progress.

Old MMO-wise, I hope LOTRO comes up with some narrative developments/expansions that go further into Middle-Earth. Rohan? We can wish.

City of Heroes also stands at a bit of a crossroads. Not so much because of DCUO launching - I think the type of audiences attracted by both MMOs are nearly completely separate, but they are working on the Incarnate system for more hardcore, challenging content. Yet they still need to not forget that quite a number of people were attracted to CoX over hardcore raid-progression-focused competitors like WoW or EQ for more reasons than the superhero coating.

Guild Wars: Winds of Change! Though I'm one to talk, not even done Hearts of the North yet, heh. But it's thrilling to see the progressive development of story in GW, and how elegantly they include these updates without having to make a big hoo-ha about bringing the servers down for an update and a giant patch to download.

@alucard3000 - Although not an MMO, I have high hopes for Deus Ex Human Revolution. Hmm, just had a thought... a Deus Ex MMO... interesting.

Looking forward to more GW2 info (as well as beta and a release, hopefully!), and maybe some details on the World of Darkness MMO. I'm also looking forward to messing around with EVE's new character creator.

Gamewise, I am looking forward to playing:

SWTOR
GW2
Dragon Age 2
Dungeon Siege 3

as well as (perhaps)
Gods and Heroes
Neverwinter
Rift
The Secret World (not sure if TSW is due out in 2011, tho)

All in all, 2011 looks like a promising year; if even only 1 or 2 of these games turns out well, I'll be happy.

Please, please, please, a GW2 release in 2011.

Fortunately Rift is coming out in 2011, so all is not lost if GW2 doesn't make it.

Tera!

And ffxiv redux. First version sucked so much. I am very interested in seeing if they can fix it.

I am looking forward for a MMO that not only plays good but is not afraid of dressing up or dressing down their characters depending on their culture and environment. A MMO that shows the accessories your character are using instead of just a pretty icon on a character sheet. Expensive to make, not necessarily, but I will be willing to pay to play for it.

Odd wishes/expectations but besides a much needed game play change (cross my fingers for Tera, GW2, and Blade & Soul) MMO's need a renaissance on their environment/graphical design. It's the little things that make the world seem alive: graphics, animation, and interaction.
