At least for me. Not saying that any new MMORPG title is the be-all, end-all fully featured virtual world that I'll always on the lookout for, but I will confess to enjoying myself so far.
I started out January playing SWOTOR, and while much maligned, I enjoyed the Sci Fi theme, the story line content that I participated in, and it was worth the money for the three months I played it.
Then came TERA, and while its action oriented combat model was really the only thing of interest to me, it was enough to level up at least one character to max level and an alt to the low 40's. Again, I got another couple of months out of it.
Now I'm playing TSW, and while its too soon to tell, overall I'm enjoying the theme (love killing zombies), the stories are entertaining, and the skill wheel intrigues me.
On the horizon, of course, Guild Wars 2 which is sort of the icing in the cake, and I don't recall a year in quite some time where I had such a choice of titles to play and enjoy.
Yes, I know, each of them has some 'horrible' faults that make them "run of the mill, standard theme park games" but I've learned by focusing on the fun parts, I do enjoy these games, even if they aren't the MMORPG I'm really looking for.
Cheers, and to all those who aren't have as much fun as I am having, I hope you find your game soon.

In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
