The Ultimate Old Republic Discussion

by Matt Miller on Dec 30, 2011 at 11:00 AM

What is the best class? Who is the coolest companion? Are you going light or dark side? Come in and share your thoughts with the community.

By now, many in our site community (including a bunch of Game Informer editors) have had time to dig in and partake of BioWare's gigantic new MMORPG. With eight distinct character stories, hundreds of hours of recorded dialogue, a number of different character companions, and all sorts of crazy narrative choices, there's a lot to chat about and share.

We've had a blast here in the office talking to each other about getting our characters started, and we want to extend that conversation to the rest of the GI community. To that end, we've put together a list of some of the most popular topics we've been talking about. Answer one or more of the questions below in the Comments section of this story.

1. Who is your character, and what is he or she like? Good? Evil? Great with the ladies? A total smart aleck to everyone you meet? A selfish jerk who will do anything for money?
2. Who is your favorite companion character in the game? Do you love your little astromech droid, T7? The imposing Khem Val? Or maybe your trusty starship droid? Someone else? Are there any companion characters you really don't like?

3. What is your favorite mission thread so far? Did you love the Revanite compound on Dromund Kaas? How about the Flesh Raider who wants to be a Jedi on Tython?

4. What is The Old Republic's coolest innovation in the MMO game space? Fully voice-acted conversations? Crew skills? Starship combat? Or some aspect of ground combat? Or did some other feature get you excited?

Share your thoughts on these topics, and throw additional questions out to the rest of the GI community.

And enjoy adventuring as we roll into the New Year!
