My favorite is "EVE - The best MMORPG you are paying not to play."
Truly, I like EVE. I do. I only played it for a month, but I found it somewhat absorbing. Until after my trial and the pretty graphics faded away, I started to think "What did I do during my entire first month of play?"
Ran security missions for minimal ISK. Lost a ship because no one told me or is it explained anywhere in the tutorial that Auto-pilot goes through High-risk sectors on purpose / default to make you not want to use it. Learned me lesson there.
Besides that...I quened skills, and read books or watched TV while I waited, because anything I wanted to do...such as industry, mining perhaps, or go out and combat, takes at a minimum, weeks to train the right skills. I was also vastly more fortunate than people, as I met someone who gave me the lump sum of 650M ISK, simply because they liked a joke I told. So I had alot of freedom to do as I wished, more so than most in their first month. Yet I realize, despite all this money, I have little to show for it. I have all +4 Implants.
This is me. So I got around 3200SP in my first month, with training 24/h quenes, with that booster you get from the Steam pack, so I had like 30+ in every stat for my first two or so weeks. I spent countless hours in EVEMon, trying to decide where I wanted to go. Countless more on the wiki, reading about the ups and downs of each ship. More hours reading Guides to ensure I didn't screw myself over after the first ship I lost. I blew 110M on a Gnosis to store away because people told me "Based on all limited availability ships, in the past they rise in price immensely, it's a good investment." Over a year later, I watch the market on EVE Central and see it's lost half it's value. I purchased expensive ships and read the best load outs for them, and started on the path to be able to use them effectively.
And I spent alot of time having missions bug out on me, causing me to have to restart them or contact an EVE GM who could "Fix the issue". I kept myself mostly in Hi-sec and tried to keep safe as everyone wants to destroy noobs for funsies. I got frustrated with really poor combat. I mean, if it all works, it's fun, but the amount of clicking involved to make combat fun, makes SC2 look like a game you could play one handed.
I started to think as the majesty and the intrigue of it all wore down, and I finished reading Hyperion Cantos.(Amazing Sci-fi book, got me really interested in EVE, despite that most of HC doesn't involve any space battles.) I wanted a Sci-fi game. I knew what I was getting into, I've played almost every MMORPG by this point, I knew the reputation.
I started to think and realized I had spent more time not "playing", but researching so for the rare times I did play, I could do so without a headache. While I did have fun, it became apparent that EVE is much like a job. A more interesting job than most, I imagine, but never the less, a job. That requires more work and hours put into it to have any fun than most 40/h week jobs do. I realized all the fun things I had heard about people doing, were months away. So I had to sit through months of waiting for my ship to read areas, my skills to train, to earn ISK for some more expensive stuff.
So what is your EVE Tag-line?
