Default Star Trek Online or The Old Republic

I spent a little while yesterday checking out the in game footage of both from GC 2009 and I must say I'm definately drawn to TOR more.

everything can be found on IGN but here are some highlights of TOR

If I was going to get into a MMO, which I doubt, it would be KOTOR, it would have to surpass most people's expectations as I really do not have a good opinion of MMOs. Though I 'm still hoping for a KOTOR3.

also dont see how a star trek online game could work.

Not into MMO's but I would probably prefer a Star Wars game to a Star Trek game.

I'm PO'd that they made KOTOR into an MMO. I like single player games, MMO's are lame.

As if I didn't want TOR bad enough, now I just really want to play that game. Only in the Star Wars Universe can you have a tank class like Sith Warrior that wears basically cloth armor LOL

Unless this is only MMORPG bashing, don't forget that's beta.

TOR looked really crippled, and ugly. I know it's the not the final product, but to my eyes, it wasn't good publicity.

Still not turning my back on the game, though.

I don't even think TOR is beta yet, from what I've been reading they're still developing classes & skills; so like expected it's a long way off, and of course there's probably going to be a lot of polish added later on. There's still something to be said for simplicity though of the user interface. Sure won't be any worse than SW:G
