    There isn't anything in the list that shouts to me as being worth my time. I've got some of the indie games but the others don't entice me at all. Can't think of any recent games that grab me either . I'm only looking forward to so far to planetside 2 and thats free to play. Apparently.

    from what I have read it will have "a free component" but then this is true for both Rift and WoW, so I would wait and see before saying ti will be free to play as it could be restricted to hell.

    that's partly my fear. There's no rhythm or reason to make it practically free. There's simply little return for it yeah, its the custom stuff thats mostly aesthetics but without physically seeing what they're charging at the moment they could say anything at this point.

    Premium membership is becoming a trend with the crap cod and BF3 are pulling and i fear that there's going to be more then that. Worst case scenario is pay to win.

    Planetside 2 is shaping to be a very awesome product and it would be foolish to not make a killing using it.

    I'm hoping its going to be like Team fortress 2, where a full game, plenty of updates goes free. Now that would be awesome if planetside went that way, but with SOE be like that?

    I suddenly feel very depressed.
