I'll be honest, it's partially just because I'm cynical of MMORPGs. So when I saw how it looked and felt how it felt right away within the first 30 minutes of playing, I ran for the hills. I've played quite a few games that look better than it up to level 30 or 40, only to find that most of it really was just a boring grindfest, with PvP being it's main selling point.
So I decided to play a game with PvP focus that required more actual player skills, like Elsword, while I wait for Archeage to come out. I'm interested in ArcheAge because even though it has tab-target combat, it looks very impressive, and seems like it has a LOT of true CONTENT (stuff to do with no gimmicks) outside of grinding, dungeon-raiding, and PvP, and looks like a great game to explore that actually makes exploring fun. Stuff from house and fortress building, to gliding, to treasure hunting, to pirating, to justice-dealing, to farm-raising, etc, and even though there most likely will be some gimmicks, a lot of this content seems to have a lot of depth and impact, and actually have an effect on the game world and game experience, and that's what I am looking for.
Also, personally, and it's just a personal taste, I'm tired of games having these generic-looking "fireworks" special effects, is what I call them. I don't know how exactly to describe them, they just look really dull and overly-flashy. I prefer sharp-looking special effects that look and feel like they have weight, but again, I'm just nit-picking at this point.
Just, flashy lights and a shit-ton of spinning for everything...That being said, I DID see some special effects that I liked in BG...maybe I'll give it another try some day.
