Started playing SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic) more these days.
I used to play WoW (World of Warcraft) quite a bit, but stopped about 8 months ago, when most of my guildies left the game. Around the same time, I started dabble into SWTOR, but only recently I started playing it very seriously.
I like the story-based progression of SWTOR. I guess I was always big on the story. Even with WoW, I was more interested in learning the lore behind the quests than the actual quests themselves. I read WoWWiki religiously, not for the tips, but for the story it captured. I was always a little bit bummed that I wasn’t able to enjoy the story better because I was always grouped and didn’t want to waste other’s time.
SWTOR is actually very solo-able. I don’t group much. Instead, I take my time and really enjoying the game. My main is a female Sith Warrior. Somehow I find the Empire side more intriguing.
Didn’t expect it, but I actually love the romance plots. At first I thought it was so hokey to do romance in game. My first toon was actually a Sith Sorcerer and I did not do romance at all. However, the SW romance story with Malavai Quinn was so entertaining I continued and now I’m wondering what I have missed with other toons.
BIOWARE had said that they expected people to reroll. Looking at all the different advanced classes, the different male/female romance plots, dark/light side choices, I’m inclined to agree.
I think this game is going to keep me busy for quite some time.
