# 1 Convince me to buy! Please
01-31-2010, 02:17 PM
Being a sci-fi guy, I am really excited 'bout STO. Yet I'm hesitant when it comes to buying games with popular brand names. The powers that be tend to make them cheaply and survive off the name(for the exception of LOTRO, I can't think of one that held my interest.

I chickened out when SWG released for that reason. I've tried COH and WOW, but although they were enjoyable, they didn't hold my interest. I was in need of a brand name(a little familiarity).

Then I gambled on LOTRO. I just love it and have regreted not being there for the release with everyone else. Even though the content is updated it was never my kind of theme.

From the looks of the video previews, I STO looks like something I've been lookin' for. Although the lack of crafting makes me sad, I'm willing to overlook it for some good old'fashioned space battles.

Not having been involved in the beta, can someone give me some good expieriences with the game?
No negativity please(I've read enough of those)

TY all, but does anyone have a good STO story to tell, that will overshadow all the negativity about the game. I understand the issues. That's why I prefer MMO(continuous updates and content)

$50 is alot on my budget for something, I'd play a month.

The game is extremly repetetive. Everybody will be bored out of their skull in a few weeks. Ive played for 3 days and Im getting bored already. Will probably just play one month.

It's new and shiny, that is the best thing going for it right now.

What part of "No negativity please(I've read enough of those)" is beyond comprehension?

OP. The worst thing you could do is ask on these forums, due to the obscene amount of trolls that have come over from WoW, with the sole intent on ruining this game. Give it a month or two and there will be a free trial out, also check youtube for some really good gameplay videos.
