OP  11/04/13 7:15:26 AM#1

I have gotten back into MMORPGs the last 3 years.  Going back to buying Rift on release was my first purchase. 


Bought Rift and dropped it after 30 days = 40 or 50 I am not sure now.


I spent 30 on WoW expansions and played for 2 months which is another 30.


So in total I spent $100 to $110 on MMORPGs in the last 5 years. How much do you spend on this hobby?

In the past 5 years I have bought Rift, and Tor plus all the expansions for Lotro and 20 dollars on marvel heroes. So around maybe 250. I only played Tor for 30 days so did not subscribe played rift  for like 6 months so bought that package. I did buy a lifetime to Lotro around 6 years ago for 199 or something like that. So i gues if you ad that in about $449 seems like allot but over 60 months thats like 7 dollars a month not to bad.

Not a whole lot. Most of them I've tried in a beta or with a buddy key and since almost no good MMORPG have come out in the past 5 years I haven't purchased many. I just wait a year and play them when they go free to play.

I bought GW2 and TSW and that might actually be it. I probably subbed to WoW for a while in there too, I quit when Cataclysm killed the game.

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

GW2 digital deluxe = $65

$15 on average for GW2 per month = $210

SW:TOR digital deluxe = $70 I think (don't remember)

7 months of subscription to SW:TOR = 7x15 = $105

At least 4 years of WoW sub for two accounts (I took short breaks) = 4 x 12 x 15 x 2 = $1440

WoW Cataclysm and WoW Pandaland for two accounts = $35x4 (or something approaching) = $140

Bought Rift (worst purchase in these last 5 years) = $55 (I think)

There must be other purchases I do not remember right now.

The total is something between $2000 and $2500 I think.

I don't regret a cent of it, except the $55 of Rift which were a total waste of my money. But that's like 2.5% of my total so not a big deal.

These days I look back in disgust but Ive spend a few thousand.

The weird thing is that the best times Ive had cost me no more than a subscription fee, but the last years of trying to find something fun to play (2008 - 2011) I frequently dropped 300euro's on a game I only played for a week or 2. 

2 things are the cause. 1 Games are shit so I tried to make it fun by spending money ( Didnt work ) and 2, I didn't really have anything else to do. 


Havn't spend a dime for at least a year now and my life is better than ever in case anyone is wondering. :P


Just want to add that I didn't even count box prices. Just the F2P cancer.

The only non trivial amount spent has been Eve Online.  Two accounts for three years, so $1,080.

Sprinkled in there was a few months sub for City of Heroes and Vanguard.

Very little and none of it wasted. A few months worth of subs to LoTRO and SWTOR. TSW box in a Steam sale. Played a couple of F2Ps and dropped $0 on those. Over five years I've probably spent as much on MMOs as I spend in a month on other hobbies.

To busy playing GW2 to post much around here... *shrug*

11/04/13 12:45:02 PM#14
Maybe around $250, not all that much. GW2 isn't even the biggest part of that, but it sure is the best value for money so far.

~2 years of runescape sub (before they went full retard with the microtransactions) - 150$

GW2 - 60$ (still regretting it)

TSW box + sub until f2p + 2 DLCs - 180$

Wurm online - 40$ or so (probably the biggest surprise in those 5 years, chose a random MMO from the list and it was actually decent)

Runes of magic - around $110, no idea what state this game is in now, haven't seen any ads or threads, so I'm guessing mostly dead, was fun while it lasted though

DayZ - 25$ (for arma 2)


so around 500-600 give or take

I spend about $30-$40 a month on I guess about 2k ?

If I really want a jaw dropping price tag I'll work out how much I've spent on lunch in the last 5 years :/

I wish there was something to spend $ on...

For me was Aion + 2 months of sub then DCUO + 3 months of ($10 a month)  then returned to it when it became F2P, paid $20 for some DLC packages.

Biggest $ sink over the couple years, obvioslly World of Warcraft. Bought MOP, and $140 for yearly sub on and off, so I've sinked around $200 since MOP came. (Keep in mind with annual pass promo, where I got Diablo 3 for free)

So since November 28th (Aion release) to November 2013 = 5 full years I've spent total of $300-325 (Between Aion, DCUO and WOW) + another $50-70 (estimated if I've played WOW before that). $400-450 top, round it $500

$500 for 5 years, $100 a year playing the best of what's available out there. Not bad, but could've done better and there is a very big chance this is my last month of WOW monthly sub.

In the past 5 years? Not as much as I use to, not even close. I'm now only subbed to one game and one account at a time, 8 months out of the year. Skipped gaming most of last year. ~$500?


Hell, my rig is 5 years old. I use to stay up-to-date, but there's no reason to anymore.


Have you guys included costs for gaming rigs and hardware over the five years?


And no, I'm not burnt out. I have the money. I want to spend it on a good MMORPG. I want to build a new rig just for a MMORPG.

There just isn't any worth it.


**edit Oh yeah, I bought a few boxes/expansions and spent some money trying out "free" games. So maybe ~$1.1k total for 5 years. Still waaaay lower than the golden era and I was drinking $150 per night out back then too.
