Monkeyquest is another kid-centered MMO. Fairly cheap to subscribe and can use "nick cash" as incentives for chore completions/allowance/good grades.
I'm spending ten times as much time playing EVE as I am playing DDO now.
Didn't like the game until I got in with a bunch of in-game psychopaths, now I jump from corporation (guild) to corporation, blowing up my new 'friends', causing utter havoc, stealing everything not nailed down, demanding ransoms, then getting out to find the next sucker willing to take me on.
Even when I'm outsmarted and wind up the loser in an encounter, it's much more of a thrill than DDO is now.
I don't have a zerging problem.
I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.
I recently started tinkering with Rift as its totally f2p now. I have to say its being a heck of a lot of fun.
Opps, missed this response:
Those interested, keep an eye out for these:
Divinity: Original Sin
This one should be quite entertaining. They had a nearly finished game and then decided to go to Kickstarter to improve it. They made all of their goals and the game should be released early next year. I think this one will be a classic.
Another one that should be good and is getting close to release. If any of you played the original Wasteland or enjoyed Fallout 1/2, then you will likely enjoy this one.
Basically, a Baldur's Gate style game, though it won't be out till sometime next year or so.
Torment: Tides of Numenera
If you remember and loved Planscape, then this will likely excite you. Again, late 2014 or later is the likely release time.
Might and Magic X
I have mixed views on this one. Could be good, hard to say. Keep in mind, it is modeled after the Might and Magic 4 and 5 games, not the later ones. Could be entertaining and it is on early access through steam.
Hopefully these games turn out to hold to what they claimed they were seeking (a return to more traditional RPG systems) and spur another RPG movement.
Have you played the original? If you have, then you may want to get the older version and mod it. If you have never played it and aren't really big into the combat system details, chances are you won't really see much of an issue, though there are some complaints about how they handled some quests and functions within the game.
That changed though as they severely reduced the difficulty of the dungeons to the point where I was duoing some of the elites with a friend. After that, game focus became "easy in task, difficult in time", that is mind numbing grinds.
Thing is about most of these games that have been around a bit is that the early games are often fun because you can see their initial design focus was about the game, not gimmicks. Though all of them you will eventually hit that wall and see where either the company was bought out, changed management, initial development team moved on, etc... Then it is time to dump them and move on.
My friends and I have been doing this for a while now and I think this is our last stop before we stop playing MMO's entirely. Games aren't being made by gamers anymore, they are being made by bean counters.

You can look around the net, there are some reviews and discussions on it. It really depends on you though.
Me personally, I have rarely seen a classic "remade" with "changes" that didn't harm the original in some way or another. So I personally prefer playing the original modded as I choose.
