I have to disagree here. It takes WoW ten times longer then everyone else to poop out content, all while charging a monthly sub. Yet, a new kid on the block, Trion, pumps out new content once a month. Guess where I feel I'm getting the most bang for my buck? Rift, that's where.

Granted, I like WoW and Blizzard, but now that we've been shown a game can patch content like crazy right after launch, there is no excuse anymore. Blizzard needs to step up the game. Right now, I'm not even considering ANY Blizzard product due to the fierce competition with Bioware, Trion, Arena Net and a few other games I'm watching.

@MMOaddict More != better.

With that being said, I did enjoy Rift, but there were just a few hurdles that I couldn't get past. If resolved, I would certainly re-sub.

1) Combat system for my class (cleric, both melee and range dps builds) could be reduced down to a 1 button macro. This is an absolute deal breaker. I'm sorry, but if the combat system is so simplistic that I literally can hit 111111 and do optimal dps to the point where people post their macro along with their dps numbers in the forums, then it's simply not engaging enough.

2) Queue times for dungeons were impossible when played late at night (when my gaming time is).

3) Just not enough to do yet.

Sadly, still subbed to WoW, maybe one day...

I'm skeptical about SW because of Funcom, but it's very intriguing and if executed correctly, could be very cool. I agree that it's nice to have a release date too.

I got the impression that GW2 might launch around the same time though ... or is GW2 still a year away? It's hard to tell since I just started following it.

I'm in love with the look of the Asura Warrior from the trailer.

But the BEST reveal has to be Dr. Strange and Nemesis in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. (I'm not the only PC gamer who watches fighting games, right?)

I'm still holding out hope that some really important GW2 reveal will happen. I'm of the mind that if they make it through PAX without mentioning beta, any 2011 hopes are dashed. I could swear I saw a link somewhere stating a huge press reveal on the 21st, but I might just be dreaming.

Aside from those hopes, though, the gameplay we saw of GW2 just added momentum to my enthusiasm... which is becoming a pretty important commodity as this hype train gets longer and longer. I'm just grateful that there are other quality games to play in the meantime. :)

I like what I'm seeing from WildStar, great character designs, hope they hold up in-game. Huttball's a little weird from a lore perspective, but I'm glad they're not afraid to add some content that's more about fun and convenience. I think their story focus will steer them well, but it's good to know when to break past that. It's a less-serious battleground that will probably have better queues and gives people the chance to fight their own faction's classes. Seems like a good move, even if it is a bit of a non-sequitur

GW2 and TSW definitely. I can't wait. SW:TOR will tide me over until those games drop.

Definitely GW2's PvP. I've already been excited for the game since EoTN was announced, but seeing just how fast paced the PvP/combat is when the characters are being controlled by people that actually know what they're doing (:p) was refreshing after the majority of the convention demo vids we've seen in the past.

After GC, my excitement for SWTOR has taken a slight dip, because i'm frothing over GW2 now. I'm tracking down the expansions so i can earn titles and stuff for GW2. That's how excited i am. I mean, it wasn't even a possibility to me until the past 5 days. I can't wait.

Best reveal of Gamescom 2011- Sylvari girl who won the cosplay costume contest... Trust me on this one... it was a pretty interesting reveal.

I had not heard about Otherland. Tad Williams is awesome so hopefully the game turns out great.

Wildstar reveal and TSW release date for me. A ton of new info on GW, though, so that's definitely up there.

@Saker

I will admit, Otherland did catch my attention. I'll have to keep an eye on it to see how it unfolds.
