Originally posted by nuttob The bright side is at least we have plenty to pick from. I suffer from the same problem, never focusing on any game for too long. Whatever I'm in the mood for, I play from an ever increasing list of roughly 10 games. I'ts all FTP or PTP's fault.
amen to that! brother (sister?)
I currently have....27 game icons on my desktop (not counting the 4 games I'm beta testing) and my steam games are way up in the 30's. I like options but the amount of fairly decent FTP stuff around (not neccessarily RPG's, tho GW2 needs to hurry up ) has given me way to much of a diversion
World of Tanks I really enjoy, and play ton's.. but I have games I've spent £30-40 on that I've hardly touched.
damn.. I haven't even used my PS3 in months
I've been gaming a long time and it is a good time to be a gamer, some really good titles out there and better ones coming!,
oh btw this is all IMO incase anyone was about to explode

I've not really devoted any time to MMO's lately simply because RL keeps me to busy. My two biggest passions, MMA and gaming are falling by the wayside and I barely have time to do either these days.
I almost feel like I'm missing out though because a few years ago I would have been able to find the time to sample many of the current games, both console and PC MMO's, on the market. I also tend to find something enjoyable or special about a game that others think is shite, and at least I'd give it a go if it turned out to actually you know, be shite.
The only viable solution is to change the damn length of a day to 36 hours instead of 24.

A large portion of the MMO population? Or a large portion of the MMORPG.com population?
Clarity may be necessary for a statement such as that.
I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Originally posted by PsychowI agree with Pokket and she didn't even address the huge backlog of non-MMOs she/we all probably have. There are a lot of fun games to be played!!
I have yet to play much of Skyrim which I plan on doing at some point. I mess around here and there on some of the games I have installed but I'm mostly giving myself a break until the 25th Normally, if it's a sub game and I want to play it I will for a month or so before visiting another game. I don't have much in the way of time constraints though ( health issues) so I can sit on my butt all day/night if I want and play.
i agree with you, Pokket, theres too many games i want to play. Right now im playing Allods online and RaiderZ beta while waiting for GW2, MoP, Swtor f2p, Grimlands, Otherland, Ravaged, Rift's Storm Legion, and a few more goodies....... just too many games and not enough time
This site alone lists 575 MMOs and that doesn't count alot of the browser based which brings in quite a few also...... That is ALOT of games.....When I started in early 2000 I only remember a couple of MMOs being around......I know some of you refer to games like Meridian 59, but I really dont ever remember that being an option, at least not one I ever saw that could be bought in the store......With our options only being 4 or 5 games, we mainly stuck to those games for quite awhile paying a monthly sub as there weren't alot of other multi-player games back then......
Now there are too many games.....I find that I have little patience when I try a new game because it is so easy to just find something else.....Also I have little desire to pay much for a new game because I know I can always play many of them for free, and the ones that are p2p jsut aren't worth paying for IMO......Slowly some of these games will die out just due to a lack of a playerbase, but there were also be more games added in the meantime......As consumers it isn't a bad thing as we have literally tons of options, but sometimes too many choices can be a bad thing.

I would bet if you took the entire NA/EU playerbase that is actively playing an MMORPG, WoW and SWTOR would account for more than half of that
This is a feeling that crops up from time to time, dating all the way back to post UO. As new games released, I felt less and less time to play UO...but that game really was the staple of my universe for a long time.
I think moving forward is easier when you can finally "break-up" with a game and "move-on". It's not so much of a relationship reference... it really is more of letting go of something you've felt you created over time. It IS getting a lot harder to do this, as I feel, the caliber of games releasing are getting better and better.

SWTOR could possibly have less population than some ofther MMOs right now. Not sure if anyone is holding at the 600k sub spot or not. So I really wouldn't put SWTOR in the same category as WoW. SWTOR is with the rest of the MMOs.
So many games and so little time. So many games and not enough cash to play them all.
I have never limited myself to one genre or platform so that raises the amount of games to thousands I want to play but will never get the chance. If only I could create clones where I experience everything they do, then I may be able to get to them all.
Looking forward to EQL and EQN.
I have the same issue, would be very happy playing any one of:
Lotro, GW2, Tera, Skyrim, Darkfall, TSW, Dayz
I've unsubbed Tera and Darkfall, will soon begrudgingly unsub TSW and am ignoring Dayz and Skyrim while I play Lotro and prepare for GW2.
It comes down to the social aspects when all is said and done, playing Lotro with my kinship is by far the most fun and looking forward to having the same people move to GW2.
There are days when I wish I could retire early and play more often, but then I stop and think about how fortunate I am that this is the sort of "problem" I have.
Playing: Diablo 3 and Black Desert Other favourite games have been: UO, Lineage2, WoW, Darkfall, Lotro
