Don't play MMORPGs. They all suck atm (i.e. huge amounts of grinding, combat takes less skill then playing pong, etc etc). If you want an MMORPG that takes skill, wait for Darkfall to come out (Official release data Jan 22).

As for RTS games, soooooo much easy. Starcraft:Broodwar is the most balanced RTS EVAH. If you want to get good though, you'll need hands that move so fast they blur. You can have tonnes of fun being a newb though. Also, the campaign is epic.

Oh. Another RTS that rocks is Complete Annihilation. It's based of Total Annihilation. It's technically a mod for the Spring Engine, which you'll need to play it. It's not that popular atm, but Balanced Annihilation is, which is also based off Total Annihilation.

Those are the only good RTS games I really know of that are good. Down of War is a PoS, that has huge balancing issues, and the heros ruin any real strategy. Warcraft 3 has the same problem. They're both just micro fests with barely any macro. Yeh, I think pretty much every other RTS sucks. Empire Earth might be good, except I've never really played it. Try that out as well if you want.

Also, if you don't mind turn based games, Go...is just well plain fucking awesome. You can apply the stuff you learn playing Go to pretty much everything. Yes, even your job.

for the PC of course. I can never own a PS2 or other stuff like that. Too expensive!

WoW, especially the private servers, is full o'lag.

Try again.

Honestly, I think the only reason WoW is so popular, is because it's exactly like a job. Boring, repetitive and lots of water cooler socializing. fucking easy.
