I don't see why not. I'm not sure how often I'll get a chance to, but I can see myself playing these games on and off until the day I die.

Sure, though I always put good health and life before virtual ones.

Been a gamer since the beginning. Currently retired and 45, I'll be playing them as long as I can sit in front of a PC and move my hands. Love games and Art. Will be doing both til I drop. Play a lot of differnt stuff, mostly shooters and MMo's. Unlike a lot of people these days I enjoy them all for what they are or offer. Enjoy theme parks, sandboxes, F2P, etc. For me, I just like to explore the worlds, get out of them what I can. I understand the complaints, I truly do, but until those new inovative games do come out, I'm gonna keep on playing. Played Perfect World and loved it til it became such a huge grind, than moved on. Played and enjoyed RoM, hit the end, buy or grind, so I once again moved on. Same with Allods, which I thought was very well made. Played it til I got bored or had to pay to compete, and moved on. Currently still play AoC, EQ2, Fallen Earth, TF2, Arma2, and looking forward to BF3. I am a gaming Vampire, I drain the games of all the fun I can, than just move on to another. For me it's a great time to be a gamer, so many choices. 

I realize a lot of the new stuff isn't for everyone, but I love the genre, and like to explore them all if and when I can. For me I never want to get stuck in one MMO again only. To much fun to be had. Though it looks like I'll play GW2 for quite awhile.

Unless the genre has a drastic shake up i doubt i'll be playing them in 2 years never mind 10. Been playing them for around 7 years and for the past few years i find myself barely playing them for a month or 3 instead of the year to a few years i did before. I'm just bored of the playing the same old same old games and the ones that try to be different being failures for the most part.

let's see, i have made a commitment that GW2 is going to be the last MMO i will ever play

im 22 now,, but it's time to move on, i have to eventually take my father's place in the near future and by that time i dont think i might be able to play much longer

so the answer is most likely not

So What Now?

Don't have so much leisure time as I had in school/university anymore. Have to work to earn my living,etc - I still play games just I play them less. I still contrary to some people I met - I enjoy challanging, time-consuming games. Less time mean It just take more days/weeks/months to get something in game / finish game. 

Fine with me - I was not racing in games before don't feel like I have to do now.


Will I play mmorpg's in 10 years?  Don't know what type of mmorpg's will be 'served' to players in future. More importantly is though - Will there be a PURE p2p game in 10 years I will be able to play and this game will be interesting?

If yes then I propably will play it. 

If all games will have cash shops, rmt, rmah ,etc - then I won't play since I don't agree with having those things in games I play.

This is just my opinion and should be viewed as just that, an opinion

10/21/11 4:40:06 AM#28

Heh, you should asked me that 10-11 years ago... I have been since then..  As much?  No. Kids, wife, family..  But I still manage to find the time to play..  And intend to until I literally have the shizzles of it all... The Chuck Norris jokes, the uber-leet raid guilds, the carebear obssesed PvP elitists,  The constant WoW comparisons,  the 'I'm-anonymous-so-I'm-a-badass' kids, and the 'i'm-better-than-you-because-i've wasted-my-life-getting-gear' people..  Yea, sorry to break it to you, but that super-death-dealing-plus-one-thousand-stat-sword isnt real or tangible, its only pixels.. ...  ..  But I'm not bitter... yet .. lol

So, 10-11 years down, antoher 10 years to go.. we'll see... we'll see...

It depends which direction this genre takes. If it continues down the path it's currently on, I really can't see me being involved. I haven't played an MMO since Lord of the Rings Online before they went free to play and made everything soloable. Before that was EverQuest. I've tried out others but the state of the genre is just pathetic, which all started with WoW, I'll wait and hope for things to get back on track.

Who really knows where they will be tomorrow. Who knows where our world will be tomorrow.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I look at where we are heading as a nation, as a world and  my concern is growing.

I look at how the revolution in Egypt started, how the riots in Greece started, then look at the protests sprouting up in so many major cities across the US. Both Eqypt and Greece started with peaceful protest gatherings, and have exploded into revolution, and civil riots bordering on revolution. Have to wonder just how close our own situation may be.

You would like to think we are more civilized and better educated, but when it comes right down to it our hlgher educated disenchated could be even more of a problem, tons of really smart, college educated, computer people, chemists, engineers, the list goes on. God forbid they decide to put that education to work for them in this call to " TEAR IT ALL DOWN ".

In ten years, the PC market will mostly be filled with MMO's.


Meanwhile, every other game ends up on console.

MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P

I'll be playing online games and taking part in virtual worlds 10 years from now. If they even remotely resemble what we know today as an MMO, that would be interesting to see.

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

MMO's nope have not been playing this at all this year however I will continue to play multiplayer games. I'm just tired of what MMO's are stuck at and from the outlook of MMO's set to be released in the next year I like the look of them but I don't like the ease of them.

Been playing MMO's for 12 years up until now (Although currently not playing one). But, I don't see myself still playing them in another 10 years if they continue down the path they all seem to be currently taking.

I am not playing now.  In 10 years my kids will be much older and not want to spend anytime with the old man.  I suspect that there is a better chance that I will be playing in 10 years.  Well the quality of games will have something to do with it too.

You set most priorities in your life according to how you choose to.    I LOVE my free time.   As such, I made a choice to never have kids.    I loved visiting and goofing around with my nieces and nephews, but I simply do not want that full-time responsibility.

I'm almost 49 and I have TONS of free time to play.   This is the way I like it, and I can't see it being any different in 10 or even 20 years (although my reflexes ain't what they used to be).

Haven't seriously played one in almost 2 years now, not really expecting to play one serious again in the future, mostly because the communities have died and the majority of players are asshats.  Until society changes, count me out.

Played: UO, EQ, WoW, DDO, SWG, AO, CoH, EvE, TR, AoC, GW, GA, Aion, Allods, lots more
Relatively Recently (Re)Played: HL2 (all), Halo (PC, all), Batman:AA; AC, ME, BS, DA, FO3, DS, Doom (all), LFD1&2, KOTOR, Portal 1&2, Blink, Elder Scrolls (all), lots more
Now Playing: None
Hope: None

I've already been playing MMOs at least 10 years. My husband is a former die hard gamer who is now a closet die hard gamer. When we do have kids I hope they're gamers too. Well. I don't care if they are gamers. Put it this way, any prospective parent would prefer that their kids are playing video games as opposed to popping out babies of their own.

As for being a neglectful parent..... Playing video games is a hobby. Kids are a full time job/investment. If you can't devote time effort and energy into your child(ren) you shouldn't have them.

Hell, I may not even be alive in 10 years... ^^ But if I am, I suspect that I will be playing games of some type. It remains to be seen where MMO's are going in that time frame. With the rise of middleware, the tech curve and the spreading demographic, things are bound to get rather "interesting" over the next ten years.
