Longings and urges

Recently I've been having strong urges to play an RPG, which must sound silly considering I still play World of Warcraft at least once or twice a week. WoW has become too familiar, though... I've killed just about every creature, finished just about every quest, seen just about every location, and really about the only thing left is to play other classes, which I think I'm going to save for the expansion, since there will be two new races to play in exciting, far-off worlds. I haven't experienced the endgame raid content yet, but that's something that will probably never happen.

No, I want to try something new. World of Warcraft is still entertaining, but I want to do something different. I realize I've said that before, but I mean it... more... this time. I think I'm about ready to start playing Guild Wars solo, at least for a while. I played a bit of Space Rangers, and while it's fun, it's not engaging, and not something that dominates my thoughts like a good game should. I think my original assessment is right; it's a fine "side" game, but not enough to keep me going. I've been playing the Dawn of War expansion, Winter Assault, and that's very entertaining. But, in a couple weeks, I'm going to want to switch over to some new addiction, and I think that addiction will probably be Guild Wars.
