OP  6/30/13 9:02:29 AM#1

Looking at the game list here at MMORPG.com, there are 598 listed. Some are not released yet, I am sure some small Indy MMOs are missing and some MMOs have closed their doors. For numbers sake, let's say 600 games (makes for easy percentage calculations).

I know many posters have played quite a few and with the F2P MMOs put out today, many are making it easier to play many MMOs.

Giving your best guesstimate, How many of the MMOs listed have you played or tried out?

For the purpose of the poll percentages:
If you've played a beta (closed or open) and the game has not released yet, count it.
If you've played an alpha and the game has not released yet, count it.
If the game has closed down, count it.
Since the actual number of games is not exact (and you've played over 540 MMOs) you get to say, "I've played 100%!"

Giving your best guesstimate, How many of the MMOs listed have you played or tried out?

541 - 600: 100%
481 - 540: 90%
421 - 480: 80%
361 - 420: 70%
301 - 360: 60%
241 - 300: 50%
179 - 240: 40%
121 - 180: 30%
059 - 120: 20%
001 - 060: 10%

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

Voted 20%. Although I...as well as everyone else should put 100%...because if you've played 1 modern MMORPG, you've played them all IMO.

 

Wish someone would go off the beaten to death path.

Wow! Already 1 vote in the 50% range... That's a lot of gaming :)

You know, under your profile you can actually tick off all of the MMO's you have played. People can then view the MMO's you have played by viewing your profile (click that persons name).

This is true. And I have clicked on the ones I've played. It took quite a bit of time, but I was bored :) I have a feeling not everyone has.

Instead of clicking on 2,468,752 profiles here on MMORPG.com, I thought it might be easier to make a guesstimation poll :)

Yeah but from experience, I doubt many have played over 20% of the games. And I highly lean towards calling total BS on someone who has played 50% or more.

Cant imagine that anyone has tried any of the upper tiers. I mean, honestly, most of it is fluff payware crap.

Yes the upper ranges seemed unrealistic to me also.

If there weren't any browser mmos listed, I'd prolly vote 90%. :P

Cheers.

I think the same thing. However, there are some posters who will try anything "for fun." I could easily see them playing as many F2P games as possible as they hop around.

I've downloaded and tried a few MMOs. I haven't been too impressed with most of them, but I still played them, even if only a little bit.

Yea, that can be a crimp :) I think I've tried one... Travian? No, 2. Wartune, also.

I would guess I have played/tried about 200 MMOs....At least half of those though I probably didnt play for more than an hour......At this point I know what I like and dont like so some of them don't take much time to make a decision on......I've probably only played about 20 or so beyond level 20.

I've played pretty much anything I'd have access to for free or any MMO I found worthy of spending money on.  I'll try any F2P or beta, but they usually don't last long with me.  F2P just loses it's luster too quick, and it because a nickel and dime affair.  As for P2P I've tried just about all of them, I've always liked the P2P model.

Best Game Ever? Highest game rated on Metacritic!

I wanted to say upwards of 80% but after looking at the MMORPG list I haven't heard of quite a few of them. I've bounced to every interesting sounding game, even some that weren't interesting sounding just to see (scarlet blade). But honestly I want to say 40% here, I have a feeling anyone over 60% can't be telling the truth, theres quite a few alphas that never got released, a lot of random games that one developer might be working on or has been for 15 years. Just seems really really unlikely.

This made me go through my profile to tag MMOs, and i came to a total of 119 ( at least of those that are registered on MMORPG.com )

 

I probably played many more overall.

I dare you to pin a label on me.

You don't have to play them all to know them all. They're not all that different from one another, and most of them aren't worth playing anyway.

That was interesting running through the list of games in the profile.  I ended at 82/598, so less than 20%.  That still feels like a lot of mmorpg's  :)

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

I've been playing MMO's exclusively since November of 1999 (Asheron's Call) and from November 1999 to March 2011 (Quit WoW Cataclysm) I played a total of 5 MMO's.  AC, DAoC, Shadowbane, CoH and WoW.  Since then I've played probably 12-14 MMO's.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
