    UO - 1-2 years

    EQ - 2.5 years?  (Launch to before Planes of Power)

    WoW - 1 year (and then 2x 6 month relapses)

    Rift - 1.5 years (left at launch came back 6 months later)


    That's all I can remember.  My average investment is about 3-6 months.  But I know that's a me thing.  I start getting antsy and ADD after about a month with only one game.  Adding an extra game either I stay longer or I get bored and move on.  I tend to do a 3 month sub and see where I'm at.  It's amazing the disks I have in my closet of MMO's that have subsequently disappeared from this Earth.

    I played AC1 for about 2 years, AC2 for about 18 months, DAoC for about 2 years, and WoW for about 8 years. That's just mmos. Don't get me started on my FPS habits.

    Funny how you mention it in past tense... Guess you quited shortly after GoD expansion..?

    Was playing like a mad man until C5. In CT series, after the Garcia expansion I quit playing. I did try GoD, it was not good, they killed the game with that one.

    I would gladly pay again to start playing C1 in a new server, think most lineage2 players  would

    I don't consider myself to have really played an MMO if it wasn't my primary game for a year.

    Anything less is just a test drive.

    What is strange to me about this thread is that people wear their long term play time like a badge of honor; like playing one game for a very long time is some kind of a virtue. I've always been slightly embarrassed by how much I play these games and how long I've played any one in particular.

    I take it you don't have many friends that are hobbyists or sports fanatics. There's probably a couple reasons for me to be embarrassed to be a Mets fan, but watching their games for several decades is certainly not one of them. :)  It's passion for a pasttime. Passion for something that one feels a part of.


    Is it a badge of honor that one was on server x when player y did amazing task z?  Or that one was there before the The Great Nerfing of [year/patch]?

    For someone really into the game/community, it's perfectly reasonable for them to consider it to be. 


    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    That's sort of the same way I feel about relationships image

    Just WoW, honestly.  GW2 hasn't been out a year yet, and I haven't found many MMO's other than those to be worth a year's worth of constant play.  Hopefully Wildstar will change that, but if it doesn't, it'll be in good (short-term) company at least.

    Games are not relationships. Not to me.

    I played ffxi for a few months when it came out in 2003 and then returned a year later in 2004 and played consistently other than when I was in basic training until 2009. Then returned a year ago and played for about 14 months.
  • DraronDraron A town in, KYPosts: 993Member
    FFXI, Mabinogi, Glitch, FFXIV in that order, overlapping of course.

    Only 2 games ever occupied my time for over a year


    1) Anarchy Online


    2) WoW

    Dragon realm Old school mud loved this game . EQ played that for a long time . DAOC about a year or so . WOW was the last one I have played for a long time, The stuff that is out now I do not think it will hold my attention for a year. I am hoping Wild Star might Hold my attention for a year or so .
  • MardukkMardukk Posts: 1,584Member Uncommon

    I played EQ for 3 years and WoW for 6 - 7.


    Unfortunately, I haven't found much to play for a very long time after I left WoW.  I've played GW2 very casually since release.  I suppose there is a possibility that I will reach a year with GW2.

    ive played many mmos for over a year, but none of them were constantly day by day nonstop for a whole year or more.

    I dont play 1 mmo constantly for that long. I jump mmos almost every month(even weeks), back n forth between different games. To me Its more fun that way because i get to play whatever i feel like playing that day / week / month.

    Only WoW.  Say what you will, but it was a really good game with an engaging and active community.  I stopped playing regularly during Cata, and stopped completely after MoP, but that could have just been the game getting long in the tooth for me.

    I played CoH for 4 years, LotRO for 2 years, WoW for 1 year, Wizard 101 for 1 year, and EQ2 for a year. I've played a lot of other games, but they didn't hold my interest for very long.

    Eve and Perpetuum. Only two mmos out of hundreds that kept my attention for more then 3 months.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.
