What MMO are all the cool kids playing these days?

I've played a number of MMO's

guild wars (everyone I know who was playing vanished off to other games in the long wait for GW2),

guild wars 2 (I never really managed to get into it, though I liked the world bosses)

world of Warcraft (I have a love hate relationship with this game, I've stopped and started about four times and whilst I have a number of chars between 80 and 85 I'm not sue I can bring myself to get up to speed all over again, and find yet another guild)

Rift (I played the beta for this and by the time the actual game was released I was already a bit bored)

Aion (the less said about this the better, it didn't last long)

I want to get back into gaming now I have considerably more free time on my hands, I don't know whether to go back to one of the above games or whether there is something else about that's proving popular that it's worth me having a stab at. I do however want something I can get enjoyment out without it taking over my life if I really want to get anywhere...

I am also on a Mac which limits my options a bit...

Dunno about the Mac option but I'm on Final Fantasy XIV at the moment (after about 8+ years on XI) - which has a pretty decent population at the moment (however much it owns my heart - XI is dying quite rapidly and is in desperate need of server merges again I think)

I'm in the process of downloading the patch/expansion for WoW. I quit months ago, supposedly for good, but have inevitably been sucked back in. I played during the beta and I get the feeling I'll still be playing when they finally close the servers blush

I've not played it for a while but The Secret World was quite interesting. I think it's recently become free to play and I certainly get fairly regular emails about it so presume it must be reasonably active. There isn't a Mac client but you can run it using something like Bootcamp or Parallels.

Have you looked at Wildstar? I am playing WoW and getting ready for WoD

Another vote here for Final Fantasy XIV, the community is really nice, gameplay is quite normal MMO fare. Best point is you can play any class on one character. Not sure if it's on Mac though.

DOTA2 is what friends and colleague playing at moment.

I used to play Guildwars lots too!

There are quite a few free to play mmo's Planetside2, Neverwinter (play every so often), and some that you previously paid for are now free, Dungeons and Dragons online, Age of conan, Start trek Online (dip into once in a while - still getting support from devs), DC universe online, Star wars i'm not sure if The Matrix Online is still going?!

I know this thread is a bit old but if you're still reading it - another vote for Final Fantasy XIV. I'm on Cerberus server if you need any help getting started!
