I've sort of given up on the MMORPG thing - I tried DAoC, EverQuest, and WoW - in each case, I got tired of it after about a month. The main problems for me were leveling (tedious) and the combat (point and click).
If an RPG game were to come out which had proper FPS style fighting (like the lightsabre duelling in that jedi knight game) I'd be far more interested - something where your skill as a fighter is down to your practice and how well you're doing on a given day, instead of a set of "skill numbers" and a random number generator. I'm hoping DarkFall might meet these criteria - will have to wait and see. http://www.darkfallonline.com/
But then, it'll probably still have the "kill 50 rabid squirrels to hit the next level, after which you can hunt DIRE rabid squirrels to reach the next level, after which you can hunt..." sort of treadmill. This is why I like FPSs - you can just jump in and play. A new FPS with a fantasy theme would be cool.
