OP  8/09/12 3:27:12 AM#1

Many people have been talking about how long they see themselves playing GW2 for, but I'm interested in getting some solid data on the subject. After being disappointed by so many MMOs, it seems like a lot of you are skeptic (and for good reason). So how long do you see yourself playing GW2 for based on your experiences in the beta weekends?

 

Personally I think I'll only be playing for a month or two, but that's simply because I never stick with anything for very long, even if I love it. However, I do think the energy coming from the community generally feels positive, and the game might have the power to keep people stuck in it for quite some time.

How long do you think you'll be playing GW2?

Not playing
Several days
1-2 weeks
3-4 weeks
A month or two
Several months
A year
Several years
Forever.

Based on how I played the original, I'm expecting three, four years 'full time', depending on how they release new content. Then on and off for the next three years or so, finally letting the game go four or five years after the last expansion, after having done everything there is to do.

I have no problem with playing a game for several years, my main problem is that with a sub model I'm paying for all the breaks in between the playing. :D

Anything over a couple of months is cream for me. I am going to try to approach it more casually, no sub might help that. I know a sub only costs as much as a couple of beers but it still encourages one to rush. I am hoping that WvW will lengthen things and might even do som sPvP as long as its not too L337.

I answered several months, based on that i'll play it for about 3 months extensively, followed by a month or so hiatus, after which i expect to go into casual mode and play more irregular, but i'll definately keep coming back for at least a year, and possibly whenever a major update / expansion arrives

Forever is such a silly option to put in, several years I think is the hard cap even to the most die hard fans, given the track record of EVERY mmorpg and game ever released, I doubt the longevity for anyone  playing  any game is beyond 10-15 years ( and that is really pushing it ), not only that but the company would release another product that you would probably play. Also factoring technological advancements etc.. there is bound to be something that offers a better experience or is more innovative.

Shame really, its actually a decent poll too bad it will be skewed by a pretty silly and unrealistic option, which will only be chosen out of hope and appreciation for the game instead of actual analysis of the longevity you think it might have.

For me I expect a year at least, then it will be a matter of content keeping me entertained.

Well people who select that option, like me, probably just thinks "Hopefully we'll play it the next 7-8 years... Until GW3 shows up"

Right. And everything on this forums is for "fun" to some extent, I dont expect anyone is going to find the cure for cancer anytime soon by posting here, that doesnt excuse you from trying to start a discussion with a poll that has what I believe to be a major flaw to begin with. Otherwise we might as well start discussing about pink unicorns, since its just for fun.

Ive never understood this. I have never found a game where paying less than $15 a month was as good an experience as paying $15 a month. There are a handful of f2p titles that are great for a few weeks .. but without bags or content purchases or any number of other nickle and dime techniques .. they aren't nearly as fun. Are there really that many more people who feel this way? I guess there are. I just doubt ill ever be one.

That being said, I put 1 year. Really though it's impossible to know. The number of mmoers I find myself able to enjoy playing with has diminished so much over the years that I might not play that long, simply because I play mmos because of the social interaction that they provide. Unfortunately, most people don't seem to play for this reason anymore. So it really depends on whether I find people to play with.

As such, it depends largely on the overall playerbase as well. The main reason I stopped playing Rift is because 80 of the 100 people in the guild I was in didn't play for more than 2 months. I found another guild shortly after the first desolved, but that one didn't last long either.

Unfortunately, my enjoyment of the mmo genre depends laregely on the other people who play them. The ridiculous influx of guild, and then server, and now game hoppers these new bread of developers have cultivated makes that pretty hard.

LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

Haha alright man you got me, I'm so sorry for ruining the entire poll because I included an option you didn't like.

I honestly see very little staying power with the game long-term, I genuinely hope I'm proven wrong though.

Didn't vote. I think this is the perfect game for playing a while, then stop, then play a while, stop again, etc.

If the g ame is good I will still be playing it in five years. If it isn't I wont.

I Dont think im going to buy it right away - if at all...

But I believe if I did it would only have the staying power of a couple of weeks for me personally.

Too many variables. Currently we don't have any details on how they will follow up several months down the line, what new content/mechanics can be introduced trhough expansions, etc. 

Personally I'm hoping it  will entertain me for well over a year. How long exactly depends on so many things there is no way I can tell now. The fact it doesn't require subscription fee makes it an option for as long as the servers will work tho, so yeah, might still play it 5 years down the road.

 I've played a subscription game for over a year (CoH), but most subscription games I have played 6 months or less.  It's because I cancel because I see myself playing them games less... and I WANT to play them again later, but I don't feel like renewing a sub for what might simply be a passing fancy.

On the other hand, games like Warcraft 3, Starcraft, PSO, GW1, Battlefield 2 and Halo, while not MMORPGs, have managed to entertain me for over a year, simply because I can come back to them when I want to.

I will play a game for a while, then take a break, but it's hard to come back to a game.

Also, anybody who suggests '15 dollars a month is nothing' isn't taking into account that if I was still paying all the subs for games I feel like playing sometimes that have subs, I'd be spending over 150 a month at times.  That's a bit rough, especially when it might only be for a weekend or a few days.  I want to go back to games!  Things like Anarchy Online, Asheron's Call, Dark Age of Camelot... heck, even WoW.  ... but I don't want to pay 15 dollars a month as a 'reserve' fee for if I feel like playing them that month. :)

(edit:  I've put over a thousand hours in GW1, for example, but I doubt I could have managed that with a subscription fee, because there will simply be a month where I'm busy or something and will cancel my fee, and I've only ever restarted a sub once in my life.)
