Lord of the Rings Online: Early Impressions

"LOTR Online is hitting a good spot in my gut right now. It just is. There's something here. Am I just happy to be a Hobbit? Will it last? Will the game hold up past the initial geek love to maintain in the hundreds of hours, like WoW? Will Turbine provide enough cool content and ideas and gameplay variations to hook new players in and convince them to abandon--or at least take a vacation from--Azeroth? I have no answers. But the good news is that I have more questions having played than I did beforehand. And I want to keep playing. That might be the best sign of all."

Getting this tonight. I liked the beta well enough to be willing to take a break from World of Warcraft for a while.
