Make an MMO that isn't an unpolished, confusing, poorly controlling, grindfest with (almost without exception) dreadful graphics and UI, and unimaginative character design seemingly targetted solely towards 14 year olds, and I'd be interested.
Even Guild Wars 2 which had been lauded for it's polish looks like a turd when compared to more traditional RPGs gameplaywise (although it's definitely the closest I've come to being tempted by one). even Bioware with it's massively expensive The Old Republic looked utter shit as an actual game as opposed to a 'social experience'.
