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.

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
Voted 3 and should've have voted 4 but for got one until this reply.
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.
Originally posted by colddog04 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 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"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

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

Games are not relationships. Not to me.
Just Phantasy Star Online , Phantasy Star Universe and SWTOR. Hopefully PSO2 will be my fourth , when we eventually get it , *looks at Sega*.
PSO 4 years , EQOA 4 months , PSU 7 years , SWTOR launch ongoing , PSO2 SEA launch ongoing , Destiny 360 launch ongoing."SWG was not fun. Let it go buddy." quote from iiNoSkillzii 10/18/13The original propoganda pixie dust villain :
Only 2 games ever occupied my time for over a year
1) Anarchy Online
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.
