My best advice is to try the game for yourself. Posts like this will bring out a wide spectrum of responses that may not be representative of your gaming preferences. For me, no other game will ever measure up but there is no single reason why. My kinship works hard to bring a variety of activities to its members whether that's because of the Lore, PvP, Raiding, or any number of other player run events. A high level of activity will make your experience in LOTRO much more fulfilling and enjoyable.
