    If you ditched this addiction, what other game would you choose to fill the game time?

    Asking for a friend, no really me. Just to get some ideas if anyone has found anything else. I tried WoW and can't take it, or Rift.

    Doesn't have to be a PC game could be a console.

    All I've played for 12 years is EQ2.

    I played 'The Secret World' for a while. It's just been re-released as 'Secret World Legends'. It's great if you like puzzles, and if you don't, there's google. If your friend loves stuff like 'the walking dead', or urban legends this is the game. It's free to play now but I don't really know what that means for that game.

    I only stopped playing because the re-released game uses reticule targeting, plus you needed to start from scratch again.

    Ark Survival Evolved is awesome, if you love dinosaurs and survival games this game is king. (through Steam)

    Final Fantasy XIV?

    My daughter really enjoyed Final Fantasy for a while, she also liked Black Desert. Mind you she changes games regularly.
    She raided in EQ2 for around 9 years and quit at ToT, the stat inflation drove her away.
    She's currently playing League of Legends.

    I just don't think there is another game like EQ2, I think that's why people are getting so emotional about the odd changes/decisions they're making.

    I have been playing Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) on and off for a while but it is not EQ2 like. I was a great fan of Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim so I just enjoy the world in ESO but it is more of a single player game with optional grouping.

    If you lift the EQ2 like restriction there are a huge number of MMO's that you could try:

    World of Warcraft (Wow) and all its clones (rift, wildstar etc), Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR), Guild Wars 2 (GW2), Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO), Finally Fantasy XIV, Eve-Online, Black Desert Online (BDO) to name just a few of the bigger titles.

    It really depends on what you want from an MMO, things like setting, PvP or PVE, high population, crafting, social game, fun maybe :)

    I have tried them all on and off and none compare IMHO. I am done with EQ2 and when my sub ends in Oct, though I doubt I will even log in much since their ethereal event is such a joke. I play World of Tanks on and off but I guess after Oct I just won't play many games. I have been playing since 1999.

    I gave up on EQ2 with the introduction of Proving Ground but I may come back for the next expansion or may not.

    Have you had a look/tried Project Gorgon as it sort of reminds me of EQ but is a strange hybrid of an MMO. Crowd funded so not the polish of the other games I mentioned and still under development.

    There is nothing out currently there .. that why those of us who love this game are still here. But I assure you....as soon as one comes out that can compare....EQ2 will be history. If DBG is not willing to put a little effort/money into marketing/improving this game all will be lost IF another game comes out remotely like this one. Right now many are following/watching for Pantheon...if it flops like Vanguard then DBG has nothing to worry about...but if it is successful it might be the straw that breaks the camels back.
