    Any ideas on where MMORPGs go from here? Will fantasy MMORPGs like WoW and Guild Wars continue to rule or will new categories take over eventually.

    The future of MMOs period are MMOFPS. MOst MMORPGS are too boring with little to no action beyond monster grinding.

    The future wont be like WoW unless WoW stays on top forever, which I hope does not happen. Will be probably be something free like Guild Wars. Will be free and made top-notch.

    Need a big MMORPG for adults. Not adult as in porn etc but adult as in what Age of Conan will be. Pure blood and guts combat with no regrets or fantasy bs. Something to put the children to bed for and enjoy.

    Well, I'd have to say with the success of Second Life and Entropia Universe, games with economies that transfer into real life may become quite popular. I heard something about the US senate debating the taxation of virtual property. If the government is interested in it, you know there's money there...

    Well, I'm secretly (not too secretly anymore) hoping that at least one of the flurry of major MMO's coming out, or various combinations, topple WoW. Major competition is good for everyone!

    The future big game is going to be free but be as good as WoW too. The cloest one to that now is ofcourse Guild Wars.

    Like it or not, I think the future is just more of the same. The Everquest to World of Warcraft type game is not going away. Age of Conan has potential to be better but I am not sure if AOC has the juice to be a great MMO for years.
