I recently returned to the gaming world after years away and have been playing WoW. While there are many cool aspects to WoW I find the obsession with stats and gear detract from gameplay. Of course these are a part of any game, but in WoW that is the primary thing and secondary is questing, story or character (even on the RP servers). I'm also not into the fact that it is virtually impossible to really do any PvP without having a high level alt or a guild to twink your character. Any recommendations for games where the stats tend to be more in the background and the gameplay relies more on the player's abilities than on just having the right gear? Story and themes that really draw you into the gameplay? Thanks!
