      Some people are actually really into that, Ghastly. They play mostly for the economy, loot gathering/selling, etc. This, to them, counts as interaction.

      I personally play MMOG in a different direction and while the economy is part of the experience, to me it's never really the main focus. So I kind of agree to an extend.

      Mmm and yes, the AION suggestion is as good as it'll get.

      I don't think there is any other F2P MMOG out there that can rival it.

      thanks everyone for the suggestion and well im not really into f2p but seeing as i get bored with mmorpgs quite easily lately i said "preferred f2p" I used to play Aion had a 55 glad temp and chanter but meh in the end got bored when most of my guild left the game also played wow for a while but darn I had the reffer bonus and that must have really ruined it for me when i got to 85 in a week or so and raids werenta big issue either also about guild wars 2 I might check it out indeed- ...

      I'm gonna side with 'Kombi' (as I have before him/her)

      I'm still very much looking forward to Versus XIII

      - Custom main theme

      - Cool, male char

      - Supposedly cities

      - NPC's

      - (Relatively) Grim setting.

      Already enough to spark my interest.

      I've never played KH (Unfortunately?) so I'll hand that one to you, but yeah...VersusXIII is the last ray of hope I have left for 'Enix'.

      - Lith. ...SquareSoft.

      kombinerka

      him and yeah id say unfortunately indeed :) I can recommend this game to anyone as childish it may look with the disney toons in the game its really fun and plot-wise its hmm want to say great but its good at the verry least 'tleast in my opinion :)

      Oh I'm excited for Versus as well (moreso than the main Final Fantasy XIII). Between that and Final Fantasy Type-Zero, it feels like it's been a long while since I've been looking forward to a Square Enix game (aside from the Kingdom Hearts series).

      I'm basically just playing XIII to see if Versus references it at all.
