    1. What are the top one or two MMO games you have spent the most hours playing in the last 3 months?
    Have not played an MMO since middle of October (GW2).

    2. Which MMO got you hooked on MMO games?
    EverQuest

    3. If you could wave a magic wand and "fix" all the problems in any one MMO (past or present), which MMO game would you fix ("fix" includes upgrade graphics and animations)?
    EQ graphics and forced grouping to advance aspects.

    4. How much money have you spent on MMO games in the last 6 months, including game client, time cards/subscriptions, gem cards, real money auctions, third-party gold or leveling services, etc)?
    $59.99 - GW2.

    5. If you could turn any setting from a book or movie into a modern MMO, designed to your specifications, which book or movie would you adapt (even if it has already been done)?
    Dragonriders of Pern by the late Anne McCaffrey. (No magic in the books though...)
    or
    The World of Midkemia by Raymond Feist.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Well, we can't be sure how much is cash shop. It seems the only money some of the people have spent was for the game client only. Of the $300 (est.) I've spent in the last six months, $100 was on monthly subscription fees. Another $90 was spent on game clients, and finally I spent over $100 on cash shop items.

    Tera ( I don't really want to go back to old games ) or SWTOR but I think swtor would be more like a miracle wand

    4. How much money have you spent on MMO games in the last 6 months, including game client, time cards/subscriptions, gem cards, real money auctions, third-party gold or leveling services, etc)?

    No idea but I'd guess about $100. I've been playing a lot of single player games till I started back in tera

    Hyperion ( dan simons ) I'd like to say star wars but it really doesn't seem to lend itself well to an mmo world.

    If $300 in 6 months is a sickening amount to spend on a hobby.....he needs to get a better job. Considering the number of hours even casuals play in that time. $50 a month is still nothing.

    Movies always put this into perspective. $13 for 2 hrs vrs how much for a whole month ? The cost of a movie is sickening :P yet I go to them all the time.

    1. What are the top one or two MMO games you have spent the most hours playing in the last 3 months?

    Edit: just saw "the last 3 months."  GW2 is the only MMO I've played in the last 2-3 years.  FFXI and WoW are the top 2 MMOs I've spent time playing lifetime.  

    2. Which MMO got you hooked on MMO games?

    I guess FFXI, since it was my first.  But then I played WoW and was really blown away.  Immersed and drawn into the world in ways FFXI could never possibly accomplish.  

    3. If you could wave a magic wand and "fix" all the problems in any one MMO (past or present), which MMO game would you fix ("fix" includes upgrade graphics and animations)?

    Either GW2 or FFXIV.  GW2 because it's currently my favorite MMO.  No MMO is perfect; they all have flaws; why wouldn't I want to make my favorite MMO even better?  FFXIV because I REALLY want to like a Final Fantasy MMO.  They're just making it so hard for me. 

    4. How much money have you spent on MMO games in the last 6 months, including game client, time cards/subscriptions, gem cards, real money auctions, third-party gold or leveling services, etc)?

    $60, box price of GW2.  

    5. If you could turn any setting from a book or movie into a modern MMO, designed to your specifications, which book or movie would you adapt (even if it has already been done)?

    Wheel of Time.  There's no fantasy world I'm more in love with than Robert Jordan's creation.

    Exactly!  I started looking at some of the answers and immediately thought, "OH! I want to change my answer!"

    I would love to see Dune. I also saw someone mention Forgotten Realms, and I immediately thought Planescape! Man, there's a lot of great suggestions here.
