I've never really been into MMOs, but I want to try them out.

I've decided against World of Warcraft because I know people there will be really unkind to a newbie like me.

I'm mostly interested in Final Fantasy XIV, Guild Wars 2, or Star Wars: The Old Republic.

I just can't decide which to play though. I know SW is free to play, but there are micro transactions aplenty and Guild Wars 2 doesn't have a monthly subscription. Not sure about FFXIV, but I have been told the new version of it is a lot better then the old one.

Anyone play any of these and can give me some advice?
