What do people think and please explain why you think it's a good choice and not just list out names.
I've been really enjoying SWTOR. Spacecraft dogfights, the light side/darkside decision system from the KOTOR games, great and engaging story line, free to play until you decide. It's a good'n.
If you're into the whole idea of action combat in MMOs, rather than tab-targeting, I had a great deal of fun with TERA. It's fast, it's exciting, there are random spawns that are 10x tougher than others, grouping is genuinely necessary, the graphics are beautiful, the monsters are MASSIVE, and so on.

I just wish that the PvP servers weren't the only high population ones.

Eve Online gets a big expansion on December 4th which should refresh the game quite a bit. IIt's not for everyone, but after nearly ten years it's still managing to grow and I've given up and returned a few times because there's nothing else with quite the same scope.

If you're interested in trying it drop me a PM and I'll sort you out an extra-long trial and a bunch of in-game money to get you started.
I'm hoping to get Guild Wars 2 for Christmas. Played it during the trial a couple weeks ago and had a good bit of fun playing with a friend of mine. Five different species/races to play as, each with their own storyline. And a handful of different classes to play, again with their own storyline, or at least a twist to the story. Each weapon type has a different set of skills your character can learn and use, also you can have two sets of weapons equipped and can switch them on the fly (with a 10 second cooldown for combat) so you can mix-and-match the skill sets. Fun times were had, and looking forward to more soon.
If you want a bit different one, then Firefall might be worth checking out. It is based around shooter mechanics but there is a stronger focus on PvE and grouping, most other MMO shooters focus more strictly on PvP. There is PvP in the works also, if this is what you want, but I like the idea that they want to get the PvE right first. It is still in beta, though.

Anyone knows any beta invites for Age of Wushu? After I looked upon a couple of YouTube videos it looked rather the fun, at least for a while.

I don't have a spare beta key but I played the beta for a while, fun for about 2 nights but I got super bored of it. Someone here was giving out keys on the forum.

Good to see another EVE player.

Seconding that is not for everyone, its learning curve is more of a learning cliff, If you choose to try it definitely get a 3 week trial from an existing player, even that isnt really enough time IMO
Skip the first M and find a D&D group who could play via Skype. Sure, you won't be able to play very often, but that only adds to the sense of occasion. You'll be a genuinely important member of the party, and hence you can actually affect things rather than just play along, and there is real freedom to do whatever you want - alright, it's restricted by the DM, but unless they are a complete facist, you'll still have more freedom than in a server.

I remember reading something about expansions in EVE online as free excluding the monthly subscription of course but no one-time fee for the new expansions, is that true? I remember I bought the game plus with a month free playtime but I never got around to try it. I've tried a few tutorials but ugh, it's quite a bit to learn I never get the motivation to try it. :(

All updates (2 a year) are server wide, you do not have to pay anything for the updated but it is not a free MMO, you have to pay monthly or use an ingame item called a PLEX to keep your account active
Guild Wars 2, don't even think about it anymore, just run out and buy it! I personally see it as less of an MMO and more of an open world co-op RPG that does what it sets out to do very well.

The game tries to eliminate grinding and rushing to the max level by having a really good leveling experience. Every zone has a level range and a story that plays out in real time through events, which has you running around the zone and just getting lost in what is going on. What really sets the game apart though is you don't need to get into a party and fight others over the events, anyone who does crap gets credit. I mention the level range thing because if you get too high level the game just kicks you down to whatever the max level of that zone is to keep everything challening.

This game isn't small either, there is a metric crap-ton of stuff to do that is all high quality. To put into context exactly how big the world is I spent 175ish hours in the game before I had to take a break from burn out and I had 75% of the world explored with no grind in sight.
