    I had the welfare version of the C64, the TSR-80 complete with the tape drive to save all my games I coded in basic.

    1. try a different kind of game - fps, moba; something which is competitive and gives you 100% of gameplay satisfaction. or a single player game? in mmorpgs plenty of time is spend by doing daily quests, garrison quests, ships etc - you literally feel like you are working, not playing a game, this can bring you into depression and frustration

    2. find a hobby in RL (sports? gym? running? football? chess? maybe amateur porn star career?) and make more friends, so they can lure you out from home every evening.
    This.  Especially number 2.  Sometimes you need to step away altogether and find something else or start something new.  If and when you come back, you'll be refreshed and probably have a different perspective and appreciation.  While this won't work for everybody, it worked for me.

    I really want to recommend Shards, but the fact that it's not a true MMO, it hurts me as well, because for a reason, i was so hyped for it until i learned that each shards only can fill less than a 100 players

    So What Now?

    I quite enjoy not having a good mmo to play. I have started writing and I am 40k words into my work of fiction now. It isn't the greatest piece of writing you will ever read, but I get more out of it than playing games over an evening. I am almost dreading the next good release that will eat up my time (fortunately there is nothing on the horizon that appeals).

    In my experience, the traditional lure of the MMO was always the wonder of the "virtual world" where you could engage in meaningful activites with a long term perspective, that made investing in it so desirable.

    But eventually, you will realise that it's an illusion - and that whatever seemed meaningful will eventually cease being attractive in terms of effort invested versues reward harvested.

    It's at that point where I think it's key to understand that you're not really looking for a repeat of an old and treasured experience - but something that's as new and fresh as the MMO genre initially was.

    That thing is not yet another MMO. At least, not until the next design revolution.

    Not to spread doom and gloom, but I am like the OP and some of us other vets, in that I have just about given up on MMOs.  Technically speaking, the genre is in wonderful shape; however, that has most certainly not led to any more real variety or deep satisfaction for many of us.  It just seems to be like the overall MMO audience, especially the one here in the West, just continues to eat poop from devs and publishers, supporting bad games and hack-fests with more and more money whilst the MMO offerings become less about content and more about money-grabbing.

    I am still playing one or two old MMOs and enjoying myself but don't play them anywhere near like I used to.  Much of what I see now are just the "new shinies" that are hyped to death for months, then we are bombarded with post-launch insanity, and then two months later it's right back to hyping the "next big thing."  And of course we are never far away from the newest "sandbox" that is supposed to turn the genre on its head, and yet it takes but one short look at BDO and AA to see that this formula so far has been nothing but a pipe dream.

    I'm having a lot of fun with my XB 1 and don't see that changing any time soon.  I am admittedly rather impressed by the gameplay videos I have seen recently from Star Citizen, but it would be a good long while before I even considered jumping into that and I'd need to see an awful lot more.  I've made some "impulse" MMO purchases in the past but those days are long gone, considering how unabashedly bad many of them have been in recent years.
