I have to go with offline.
I've tried playing Warcraft before but there's a lack of purpose to it. Freedom is good, i loved Oblivion, but i like to play a game where i'm working towards something. Preferable also battling a big baddie just before the end as well.
I also prefer NPC's in a game as opposed to playing with my friends. Npc's are unknown and mysterious. Part of the game is discovering more about them. I don't get that with my friends though, i already know them.
If you could get a MMORPG like what PazaakPrincess, then i might get more interested. Bottom line, i love plot.
