In the order of which game that I've uninstalled the quickest.
1. Rift. I didn't make it through the full week trial of the game, it was so bland and horrible.
2. The Secret World. Combat, animations, graphics, were too piss-poor for me to even bother with, uninstalled after 2 weeks of being in the beta.
3. Star Wars, The Old Republic. Had high hopes for this one, but it failed miserably in the end. I didn't make it past the first free month of the game.
4. Linage 2. Quickly got bored of the endless grinding of this game. Lasted about a month and a half I think.
5.. Warhammer Online, Age of Reckoning. I lasted about 4 months into the game, Mythic really dropped the ball after having created the best pvp game ever, Dark Age of Camelot.
In a world of sharp knives, you would be a spoon.
3. Auto Assault
The only game on that list that I actually bought was Auto Assault. It was in the bargain bin for 5 bucks and came with a free headset. I needed a headset.

I'm sort of surprised to see Aion score so high on this list because the production value was so high compared to other games at the time.
On the other hand, the WoW guild I was in litterally packed up and moved to Aion for the graphics (not me, I was busy at work). Most were back in 4 to 6 weeks and it never got mentioned again.

Hmm... not all of these were "AAA", at least not in my mind, but here goes:
There are several others that people might consider "AAA", or at least titles on an "A" list, but a lot of my other experimentations were some quick F2P trials or Korean "free trials" that wound up being the same damned thing from one game to the next.

One thing about the numbers is that they will likely be skewed to the most played MMORPGs. They have a bigger pool of people to pull from to find disgruntled customers.
It's still kind of fun to look at though.
Animation lock drove me completely insane, uninstalled in a couple hours. Luckily this was open beta.
I was burnt out on WoW and this is the most obvious rip off of them all. Luckily this was open beta as well.
3. Champions online
This is just a very bad game in all aspects.
4. Age of Conan
Not what I thought it would be at all. Didn't even open my wife's copy of the game.
Super generic themepark, quest hub to quest hub...boring.
No argument that FFXIV was just a mess at release. SWTOR didn't rock it for me, first sub based game I didn't even get past the first month in. PWI just a horrible grind fest with horrible cash shop. WoW I played for the first month and just got this 'meh' feeling, had its moments just didn't grab me. DDO didn't take me long to realise I'm not a dungeon grinder. A few aren't necessarily bad games, just not for me.
1. Guild Wars
3. Ultima Online
4. Everquest 2
I couldn't think of a 5th.

Ditto. Cool thread. Very relevant considering the discussions on game longevity and what affects it.
1: EVE (hate point-click to move mechanics)
2: TERA (the most uninspired mmo ever created)
3: SWTOR (we all know why)
4: The Secret World (funcom=good ideas, bad execution)
5: Darkfall (just couldnt work with the terrible interface)
Aion - lasted 2 weeks then unsubbed and uninstalled
SWTOR - didn't last the beta before uninstalling

If that was the case shouldn't WoW be first?
My #1 was also Aion. It just came off as bland and generic game. The whole aerial combat thing wasn't nearly enough motivation to suffer through the rest of the game.
There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.-- Herman Melville

There are other factors that skew the results as well as total number of players that played the games. Age of the game is one. There might be a lot of younger people that never played some of the older terrible releases which would skew the numbers towards more recent releases.
There are a lot of things that skew the numbers to be honest. It's not a DIRECT relationship, but the numbers do get skewed by things and the results shouldn't necessarily lead to any specific conclusions.
1 - Aion
2 - War

You're wrong. There are games that I like and play often.
There were mmorpg's I was playing for more than a year as well.
So bad argument.
To be fair, he did say " SOME of you are not gamers and therefore do not like games " ...he didn't say ALL of you are not gamers, etc. I think, to be honest, that he was spot on. Not everyone that frequents this site is a gamer and there are some who just hate all games, for the most part. Again, it doesn't mean that everyone falls into that category.

Leads to the trap of "you're just not a gamer unless _____, though". The subjective definitions that attempt to be imposed tend to be woefully insufficient for the ten million breeds of gamers, and usually just reflect the speaker's bias.
Kind of like...which game is worst discussions, come to think of it.
Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Maybe instead of saying "not gamers', he should have said "bitter jaded gamers". I don't think those that it was aimed at would argue that point...
This is a list in order of how quickly i removed a AAA title form my computer
Aion - literally 5 minutes not joking
STO - about 2 hours
Rift - about 8 hours in beta
SWTOR - 2 weeks
WoW - 2 weeks
Playing: PO, EVEWaiting for: WoD Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDOAny person who expresses rage and loathing for an MMO is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.

Oh, he was talking about me?

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

I can't stop re-installing WoW ... something about promising change keeps pulling me back for verification. Damn you blizzard!
1) Darkfall - Followed this game for 5+ years of development. It was built as the second comming of Ultima Online (only in First Person View) It felt like they TOO far in the opposite direction of themepark populisim. I ran for 10 minutes from the starter town before I found anything to fight....which promptly kicked my butt. (Should have taken that left turn at Alberquerque) Oh...and FPV SUCKS!
2) Mortal Online - Didn't learn my lesson with Darkfall.
3) SWTOR - Felt like I was playing my 7th year of WOW, except I didn't have my finished characters or network of friends. After I realized I was faced with 100s of kill & delivery quests to get to the same point i was in WOW, I uninstalled.
4) WAR - Felt like I was playing my 6th year of WOW
5) EQ - First 360 degrees 3D MMO...after playing Isometric Ultima Online for 2-3 years. Got dizzy and nausious after running around for a few hours and uninstalled.
