I like all good games. I like some MMOs but I'm not actively playing any.

I'll admit I use to like MMORPG's more then today's MMO's.

Still not sure why it's acceptable to have singleplayer RPG feature's such as story in a MMORPG and the almost guided way to cap lvl limited towards combat mostly.

Graphicly we have evolved, gameplay wise this genre became very limited which to me is the cause of low player retention. As all you get in today's MMO's the type of player that threats this genre like any other online combat game with hardly to no dedication towards the gameworld and it's community which is understandable due to the nature of how these games are made today.

I haven't really played an mmorpg in about a year now.  I've tried a few in that time but never lasted past the first few days.

Do I like like mmorpg's?  I used to but my interest has waned over time.  The direction they're headed is the polar opposite of what I hoped.  Ask me again next year and my answer will probably be "no" unless something radically changes.

Forum PvP is still fun.  The fans never disappoint.

I think I like the idea of MMOs and their possibilities more, than the actual execution of them.

I like sandboxes, apart from EVE Online, you don't see those anymore.

Yes, I am currently enjoying playing an MMO.

 

It's a grossly incomplete POS in pre-alpha, but I like playing it.

 

I've pretty much given up on ever finding the "magic" in a commercial MMORPG again.  I figure if they can't provide it, I'll try to make it happen on my own.

Big fan of the virtual world, economy and social aspects of MMOs. They've been both my entertainment and my job for over a decade now and I'm not sick of them yet, so I think they'll be a favorite of mine for some time to come.

Admit it. When no one is looking you're PVPing in EVE on one screen while throwing pies at bad guys in ToonTown on the other.

I like many aspects of MMOs, but I'm not very fond of the strong emphasis on perpetual gear grind that seems to be the end game in most of them since WOW. There's no perfect recent MMO for me. I play a bit of SWTOR and GW 2 while I wait for new MMOs to be released that might appeal to me more.

I like some things in today's mmo's but in some ways they are horrid.

I hate maps that have big glowing areas, right down to the square  meter, showing me where I should go. Quests are more about relay races than anything else.

That's one of the reasons I found The Secret World's quests so refreshing. I actually would have to stop and think.

Though of course it still has big glowing areas on the maps.

I hate having to do quests in order to be competitive or have progression.

I don't like the idea of end game. Especially raiding. oh, I like the idea of donig a few raids. But logging in to repeat raids ad nauseum is not my thing. I would much rather get my gear from players.

I don't like how much of the combat is about damage. When I first started/tried mmo's I thought it would be more like morrowind and neverwinter nights' combined (just my take on it at the time) as I thought there would be greater variety of spells and abilities. Like "light" because areas were dark Or perhaps divination spells to tell one of the area, etc. maybe casting a "tentacles"  spell or dark spell to hinder your opponent.

I don't like how they are more like "games" and less like worlds. I realize others don't hold the same value on that but there it is.

I don't like goiing to a cave and getting a "you are not on the appropriate section of a quest" message if I want to enter.

I hate having to earn "faction" by doing certain things over and over so I can get points in order to benefit.

hmmm, maybe I don't like mmo's!!!

I like games period.  I don't like every game, but I like some games from every genre.

I would really like to see single player games with more multi-player or persistent worlds or mmo features.  Take what you can do in Torchlight 2 or NWN and take it to the next level.

I have several mmos on my system now that I play: GW2, TSW, EQ2, STO, LotRO, GW1, and RaiderZ.

I notice that some of the most active and vocal forum users don't play MMO's any longer. One has to wonder if these people who are so vocal are "the voice of the people" or merely a fringe group out of touch with the rest of the playerbase.

It's unfortunate but I have to say that I feel the same way. It really is amazing to observe a genre of gaming with such an unparalleled level of potential produce so little fruit.

In between mmo's right now, and I'd rather read this site than play another soul-sucking free-to-play treadmill.
