    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.

    1. Rift

    2. ToR

    3. Auto Assault

    4. Seed

    5. War

    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.

    AION 36

     

    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:

     

    1. Shadowbane:  Got into Closed Beta, had major client crashes, the game released shortly after, read posts about more crashes, got rid of that turkey.  Don't get me wrong-- some people I know had really good experiences with it, but it wasn't for me.
    2. Age of Conan:  Once again, got into Closed Beta right before the push for a release, had a lot of client issues, got rid of it.  I REALLY wanted to like this game!  I even won my Closed Beta spot from a "Submit Your Prayer to the Gods" contest, and mine was one of the ones getting bashed for being "story length", it was so damned long.
    3. Final Fantasy XIV:  Not surprisingly, this is a very popular one on this list.  There's a pretty solid community of people that loved Final Fantasy XI, but admit that it could have used a few tweaks.  Like many others I expected FFXIV to be the answer to what we felt might have been missing from FFXI, but what we got was a total mess.
    4. Dungeons & Dragons Online:  Another one that got pushed out too soon.  I got into this as a Closed Beta, and I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't what I saw in the game, that's for sure.
    5. EverQuest 2:  Except for a resource-hungry graphical make-over, I didn't see the allure of changing over from EQ1 to EQ2 at the time, and I'm not a big fan of SOE's Customer Service, or lack thereof.  The recent hack attacks don't do anything to restore my faith in them either.  This didn't make it past Beta stage for me.

     

    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.

    1.  TERA  

    Animation lock drove me completely insane, uninstalled in a couple hours.  Luckily this was open beta.

     

    2.  Rift

    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.

     

    5.  Aion

    Super generic themepark, quest hub to quest hub...boring.

  • EvilGeekEvilGeek londonPosts: 1,227Member Uncommon

    1. FFXIV

    2. SWTOR

    3. PWI

    4. WoW

    5. DDO

    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.

    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)

  • JaedorJaedor Denver, COPosts: 1,140Member Uncommon

    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 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.

    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.

    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, EVE
    Waiting for: WoD
    Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDO
    Any 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.

    1. Lotro - Tested it in 2011 after suffering from mmorpg withdrawal. Uninstalled it after the first day and decided to play singleplayer games instead.
    2. GW2 - Played a free beta weekend and knew the game wasn't for me and ended up buying Tera online instead.
    3. Tera Online - Quit before the free month ended. Loved combat but sad endgame for a P2P title in 2012.
    4. Aion - Quit before reaching cap. When the mob grinding started my interest died.
    5. Warhammer Online - The original wow-killer.

    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.
