    EH, gag me. Check out the gaming section on entropysink.com . A few of our members haven't posted in ages because of that damn thing.

    I've been playing EQ2 trial. I think it's a great game, never played WoW, though. But the only reason I don't like MMO's is the @!@$ monthly fees. They are way to expensive, you pay like $5 just to play an hour :exageration: . Those games take over your life, as well, wait I dont have a life, haha!! My only MMO that I actually payed for, was Phantasy Star Online, for the dreamcast. That was an awesome game, that system got me into online gaming. You could only talk for like 3 seconds on the mic, haha, but it was kickass back then.

    Too many of my friends have been...devoured...by MMORPGS for me to even try them. I'm out and out frightened of them.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Not entirely so....

    I see your point with the cost....but WOW is not that expensive like others...it's like 15$ a month....now I live in South Africa Which translates to $75 a month. Which is still pretty acceptble considdering the quality you get.


    And yeah...It has taken over my social life...

    If you only play 3 hours per month, then MMORPGs aren't for you the same way that a TV set is to expensive if you only watch TV 3 hours a month.

    Surely that's insane, though?

    I mean, you have to pay like 20 - 30 for the software in the first instance, on top of that you pay $15 a month?!?

    Maybe if they actually provided you with priority routing or something from your ISP to them so you'd be guaranteed a perfect connection 24/7, yeah. But other than that it's a nice way to make money.

    Valve updates HL2 with new, free content every now and then without me having to pay them anything monthly. Maybe I should fly to their offices with some spare blankets and food just to make sure they're OK?

    Sorry, but the only true MMORPG is Nethack.

    Damnit, I have to post about WoW.

    60 Druid. Quit about two weeks ago. Game got sooooo boring.

    They are way to expensive....
    I used to think the exact same thing, but I know I got more
    than my money's worth. In the 8 months I played the game, I
    paid less than $200 ($80 of that was for the Collector's Edition).
    May sound stupid, but World of Warcraft actually *saved* me
    money. I didn't buy any other game in those 8 months. Half-Life 2
    and Metroid Prime 2 (hehe, still in its shinkwrap) were the last
    games I bought before WoW.

    Since I quit WoW, I've bought 2 games. 2 games in two weeks!
    See what I mean? WoW saved me cash.

    Still, Blizzard kept screwing everything up. (1.7 patch may bring
    me back. Druid fixes!). Now I'm waiting to see how Tabula Rasa
    turns out.

    I played a 53 hunter in WoW before I realized the game sucked.

    I am not back to EQ2 which is much much better.
