I'm playing WoW with my co-workers. I think it is the best designed/art-directed game of the "EQ mold" but since I've been playing MMOs since Meridian 59 (and Nethack and MUDs before that), I'm a little tired of that sort of game. Especially since I've played WoW off and on since beta.
Still I'm playing it as I completely agree with the statement "they have set up a system that allows me to rent my friends on a monthly basis" but I'd like something to play that is a little more open-ended and free-form. Like Ultima Online and Asheron's Call but more up-to-date with current tech and graphics.
What games are other people playing along these lines? Since I'm paying for WoW already, looking for something low-cost or free.
P.S. My co-workers and I are the "Stray Dogs" (Alliance) on Warsong btw if anyone is looking for some fun. PvP world and we're looking to start or partner up with a Horde guild for organized guild wars.
