I'm not really surprised either. Though I do love MMOs. Only problem is too many of them are go slaughter everything that moves. Now that's what a large portion of what people want, but I don't see any reason to pay a monthly subscription fee for that. I can do that in single player games, or play multiplayer with out the dedicated server. It's not like your actions make much of a difference in most MMOs.
I do however really like UO. You don't have to slaughter everything, you can be just a tailor, or a miner, plant grower, or many other things. Other games have these aspects too, but you must kill, kill, kill, a little bit of what you want to do, then forced to go kill, kill, kill.
I was hoping Tabula Rasa would be another hybrid game, but from all I read it was just another Massive Multi-player Online Quake with a different battle system.
I don't know any other game like UO, but with how much EA has screwed us, I'm hoping one will come along.
