I kept returning to World of Warcraft, but now I am a bit outplayed with World of Warcraft(played it for 7 years). I think the best games are the ones that you keep returning to. What is the game you keep returning to?
Playing: War Thunder, World of Warcraft, and Grim DawnWaiting on:Everquest Next and The Black Desert
You dont mention if you want an mmo title or not... but one game that is ALWAYS on my hard drive is Civ 2.
Allthough, I admit, I have updated to Civ 5 haha. But yea, like I said, when I need a mmo "cleanse" a week or so of online Civ will shake the webs loose and make you crave killing 10 rats. Again.

EVE keeps drawing me back....and still remains fun after quite a run.
"Winning" at EVE Online since May, 2007!
In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

Don't be terrorized! You're more likely to die of a car accident, drowning, fire, or murder! More people die every year from prescription drugs than terrorism LOL!

Had I started a few years ago, I believe I'd have the same sentiment. I tried the extended trial, and thought it was a pretty freakin' awesome game. Every time I logged in, though, I had this little feeling that I'm just a noob in a huge world filled with vets, and it'll take forever to become a viable entity. Love the concept, gameplay, and most of the rest of it though.
Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERATried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...Currently Playing: GW2

Yeah.. for me its Civilization. I have played it now over 20 years. And i guess this love story will go on.
I also have enjoyed the Anno Games since a decade.
MMOs? Not any more. I returned to UO a few time, but not nowadays.
WoW, but I never really left. I keep playing Skyrim, before that was Oblivion for when I have that open world rpg kick. I used to go back to Asheron's Call, but just can't anymore. Minecraft is something I play from time to time, the idea behind it is great, but the overall pointlessness to any type of adventuring makes the game stale for me. I play GW1 for a few hours per month. I have a feeling GW2 will be something I play for spurts for years to come.
I have a feeling that the new SimCity and Phantasy Star Online will be games I play off an on for years.
Rift and LOTRO.
But...in my quest to find a Wizardry-like game, I discovered The Legend of Grimrock and that's all I've been playing lately. The map editor is awesome!
Mmorpg wise: FF11, I keep going back to this off and on, also City of Heroes.. makes me sad they are closing it down. Though last time I went back to ff11 might be my last, I didn't like how they made it easy mode with abyysea's release, they even changed the non-abbysea area's now. If you scratch those 2 off my list there most likely is no mmorpg i'd go back to, hasn't been a good mmorpg released in like 4-5 years, and most of the ones I would go back to have either shut down, or been made easy mode to cater to bitchy whiney casuals. Ragnarok Online though I guess I could put that as a mmo i'd go back to, have been playing it off and on since the 1st english closed beta, way back when all they had were the 1st jobs.
Single player game wise: Fallout 3, Fallout new vegas, oblivion, skyrim, and these sorts of games that you can mod the hell out of them. Mods can give you a totally diffrent experence everytime if you just switch which your using.
Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:
A. Proven right (if something bad happens)
B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)
Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!
Originally posted by jdlamson75Despite its flaws, after every disappointing new MMO I've played over the past 3 years, I've continually gone back to Darkfall. It's a combination of the rush I get when fighting other players and the camaraderie I feel with those in my clan/alliance. Had a lot of good times and made a lot of good friends in Darkfall.

The ones i hit multiple times.
DAoc (MaIN ONE THIS GAME WAS SOLID) ladders to ramps in rvr made me never return however.
CoH played this one more thana few times, just a fun character building game.
Wow, stopped going back, cata was my last venture prob will stay that way.
Played rift twice raiding both times.
Eve played that for a long while off and on, haven't bveen back a a while doubt i will. They have basiclly made the game unfun and overly disapointing for any new / casual players... with there attempts to limit the rewards of bots, hardcore, and seasond players. So i doubt ill go back, but it was cool.
I truely and hoping for a daoc 2 (not the new and improved wow style daoc two we keep seeing).

Games I have gone back to are Everquest (4 times). Anarchy Online (once), I would have gone back to FFXI but they no longer had my old account because I cancelled the payment info when I cancelled and shut the subscription to Square .They mentioned even if you cancelled the payment should not unsubscribe but I did that and lost the whole account. Then I went back to DAoC (twice) but that game never grabbed me,WoW I have lost count how many times I have gone back. Everquest 2 at least three times and I really liked that game a lot. Vanguard once and the second time I invested a huge amount of time in it and loved it. LotRO I went back three times and the last was the longest and most fun. Today I decided to go back to SWTOR to finish the class stories I do so love Bioware storylines.
The two games I have gone back the most to are WoW and City of X. I think City may be even more times than WoW
I usually go back to EQ. Probably will again soon. I was on the progression server, but took some breaks, then lost track of which expansion they're on. I might just do the regular server with my free silver membership, then upgrade if I'm still playing.
I use to go back to daoc all the time, but once they dropped the classic server, kind of dropped the game. Besides, as fun as it is, the movement is too annoying for me, especially if I play a melee, although damn I do miss playing a shadowblade or infiltrator.
I've been done with WoW for a while. Only went back a couple times when they gave me some free time to check out the changes.
