>I'm still unsure whether online RPGs are for me or not.. WoW seemed really dull to me.
WoW shouldn't be used as a gauge for online RPGs. Everquest is the definitive MMORPG, but it's old and hardcore. Everquest II is prettier and more player-friendly. Vanguard will be a good game once they work out the kinks. LOTR Online is turning out to be incredible. And there are tons of others out there spanning all kinds of genres. And WoW isn't one of the better ones. ;)
