I'll give Seed a chance for sure. Hell, we don't get nearly enough Sci-Fi MMOs. Looks pretty interesting.
My WoW Trial:
I finally tried WoW last night, and what struck me was how lackluster the game is when you first get into it. I mean, you get a little story, you get tossed into your "home town", and BAM you begin the grind. Yaaawn.
The graphics suck huge ass I might add. With my gaming machine I had all the graphics settings maxed, and no matter what I did, I couldn't shake the feeling I had that the world around me consisted of about 27 polygons. I came to the conclusion that this is one of the reasons the game is popular. Because you can have an ass machine, and it will play smooth.
Anyway, one of the huge draws of an MMO for me is being able to explore the game world. I can honestly say I felt no need to explore WoW. I know the game isn't all about graphics, but I don't want to be tossed into some shitty looking world where grinding is THE ONLY thing to do right away. Say what you want about Star Wars Galaxies (yes, it's ruined now), but visually and environmentally speaking, it makes WoW look like Dig Dug.
Anyway, I heard the hype, I tried it and walked away. Congrats that the rest of you are having a good time there. I'm just a bit too picky I guess, coming from an FPS background.
EDIT: I also wanted to add that I wasn't the only noob that got in WoW last night and was standing around saying "um is this all? What do I do". If the game really is as great as everyone says it is, they could probably have an even larger customer base if the noobs had some kind of mind blowing adventure to go on. Not "go to the guy with the exclamation point over his head to start your grind".

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.
