I continue to fail to revive interest in MMO's. Why is that?

Whether its on console or pc, they just always seem really half assed.

I realize that an mmo's gameplay compared to that of a single player game will always be less refined, for lack of a better word, because of how massive the MMO game is compared to a game where you are the only player.

But always degrades a lot. Like SMT. Compare Nocturne's gameplay to Imagine's.

I know that's a stupid comparison as it would be hard to make an MMO with nocturne's engine, but its still a lot better.

MMO's are always click click click. Nothing feels dynamic and its always "click to walk over here, click to use this ability." You always watch your character fight for you instead of doing the actual fighting.

I wonder if that will ever change.

Which are indeed very awesome. AAA quality even.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

Play Tera...with a gamepad. Problem solved? Dungeon Fighter was excellent in that regard. You could always try Vindictus, Dragon Nest, Elsword...erm.. those are the only ones that have action game like combat systems while still remaining MMOs.

However, Tera is the only one that offers an open world with such combat. It's free so it won't cost ya anything but download time. <_< it is like...24GB though.

Just a warning about Tera before deciding to play it.The community complains that the loli race doesn't have skimpier armour (and they have the skimpiest armour around),and while I didn't give two hoots and ignore them,it has managed to get my friends too creeped out to play the game now.So just a warning if that might kill the game for ya.

Otherwise,I'd say Tera is probably one of the better action combat MMOs out there.Vindictus is also good,but I haven't played for a while,so I have no idea how good S2 is doing so far.
