I think this is the best time ever for gaming! I'm excited by what I hear about Darkfall Unholy Wars, Archeage and Neverwinter just to name a few. Sure, you can never recapture the feeling of your first few games any more than you can recapture your first love of the first time you saw Star Wars. That said, if you put those insurmountable expectations behind you, there's lots of fun to be had.
So long as the paperwork's clean, you boys can do what you like out there.
