SWTOR is just SWG the update; terrible game.
SWG pre-cu was awesome!

Grindy...but the PVP was sooo fun.

Awesomely broken in every way possible. Though when Jedi's were super rare the game was somewhat fun.

I'm talking before Jedi's and 98% resist armors.

Had a 3 day long battle at a player imperial base...most fun I've ever had gaming.

My suggestion? Play some free MMORPG's (there are quite a few really good ones out there I can list for you if needed), until something like Guild Wars 2 comes out, which is looking to be an impressive MMO and will be new, so everyone (and you) start on the same knowledge level and ability.
That's a good suggestion. Only thing that attracts me to SWTOR is in fact that it's in the Star Wars Universe. I ain't got sh*t to do today so i'm probably finishing my 2nd run on ME1 and going on to the 2nd one.

Why? I played Guild Wars for 5 years (have a 6 year account, but haven't played in ages) and managed to have a social life, get through college, spend time with family etc. It's all about keeping things in perspective. MMO's can become seriously addictive to people, but if you put the important stuff first then there's no real problem.

I much prefer RPG's and MMO's (well...Guild Wars) to other games. More kids today are getting addicted to FPS's anyways.

I tend to lose interest in them fast if several people I know aren't playing with me. Most gamers are assholes who cry nonstop and an MMO forces you to interact with them.

This. I have played WoW for years and it has never affected my personal life. People just need to realize that it is just a game.

I have some friends like this and it is usually because they get to the end game and they don't know what to do. For example in WoW, there is so much to do at the end that they didn't know where to start and got somewhat overwhelmed and just quit.

This is true as well. Obviously some games and servers are better than others, but you run into a lot of people that take the game way too seriously and will just run their mouths about how bad people are or they will whine a lot. Best thing to do is to get into a guild or just play with people you know or have played with before.

Very true. I play online games with the same people I have done for 6 years. I hate playing with 'randoms'.
