    Bingo!

    For me, a good MMO is ulimately about community. What's the point of investing yourself in a community that isn't going to be around in 6 months?

    Dust huh?  Maybe you should try EVE Online. 

    Fear not fanbois, we are not trolls, let's take off your tin foil hat and learn what VAPORWARE is:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware

    "Vaporware is a term used to describe a software or hardware product that is announced by a developer well in advance of release, but which then fails to emerge after having well exceeded the period of development time that was initially claimed or would normally be expected for the development cycle of a similar product."

    Actually 2012 has brought MMO's back alive for me. With the release of Guild Wars 2 I have found another MMO that I enjoy and have been having a blast.

    It's been a long time MMO genre. Thank you ANET for a fantastic game.

    pretty much, i had high hopes for a lot of games, mostly gw2 and d3. I was a huge fan of gw1/d2 and played them hours on end, but gw2/d3 i was bored within a week of both games. I don't see much else on the horizon for rpgs, other than archeage which looks like more of the same to me.

    It seems like now days game companies make games to sell copies, not to keep people playing. Which is sad because I'm the type of person who can play a single game for years straight, but thats just not possible for a mmo anymore i think, not if this is the way they decide to develop them.

    For me it has. I've tried to quit playing MMOs for the last 2 years, but without luck. There was always something new & interesting around the corner. Now, at the end of 2012, I haven't played any MMO intensively for the last 3 months. Looks like the bad releases of the last few years and the major disappointment of those in 2012 really made me quit...

    Dust as in the crap that sits on your shelf from lack of use not the game. I have the game and barely play it.

    Because i can.
