Same here... Well, actually 14 years, since EQ1 came out in march 1999, unless we're gonna count muds? Then I reach a few years further... :)

I'm still in the 10% categoy.  I'm a little self-conscious about this given how many opinions I have about the theory of games. But I'm picky about what I actually install.

There's nothing to be self-conscious about. You've played enough to know which title's you may like and which titles are more than likely not your thing. As for opinions on game theory, eh... if nothing else that just means there's a lot to discover yet, and that's a good thing. :)

Yea, that is close my own journey. Picked up EQ in 2001. Played for 3 years and looked at WoW and CoH in 2004. Played them both off and on until maybe 2012. Between that time I did try out Wizard101 and played that for a couple of years. I'd say in the past year or two, I have tried 10X as many MMOs as the previous 11 years.

I keep thinking that my first MMO was actually Meridian59. That would have been back in 1997 or 1998. I have a very vague memory of being on AOL and playing a game where there were lots of people in a fantasy/medieval setting standing around the starter area and talking in Ye Olde English. I left and never went back. I cannot recall if that was Meridian59 or not, but that name sounds so familiar to me...

Anyway, 2001-2012 I played 4 MMOs. I also spent money :) 2011-2013 I played probably 30-40 MMOs. I have spent very little money lately :)

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.

I wouldn't feel self conscious at all :)

As it stands right now, 48.5% of those answering the poll are in the 10% category, myself included. Like Loktofeit pointed out, you have a good sampling to have a good idea what you enjoy and do not enjoy.

Quirhid made a good point that many of the MMOs out are quite similar. There are quite a few that if you played one, you may have played three or four more without ever signing in :)

The opinions of others on the massive selection of MMOs out there was one of the things that got me thinking, "How many MMOs have some of these people played?"

Just because you can't be nice, doesn't mean you shouldn't.

I'd like to think that I spent nearly 3 hours on every single game on that list, but I don't play sports games so 90% is as close as I can get.

Hmm, let's see...

DAoC, AoC, UO, MCO, MS, HG:L, EVE, and AA... I think that's all of them.

Looks like bottom tier vote from me as well.

That's why I tried to emphasize "guesstimate" and gave ranges :) It can be tough to recall every MMO ever tries out, especially after decades of playing :)

I always thought that im addicted to gaming but realiziing people have been playing more than 300 mmorpgs in one life im not sure anymore. Its fascinating how many free time some people have. Ive played a lot of MMOs recently, mostly client based ones. I've made a list of the Mmorpgs that i have played in the past years and its still growing. Not all of them were enjoyable but i dont feel bad for playing games at all. This is my hobby and i hate sports and mainstream sh*t so keep gaming, even if you have played more than 400 mmorpgs (you freaking nerds ;))

I find my eyes popping out of my head looking at the poll and seeing at least 1 vote in every category.

Even way back when, there are some posters who played UO, EQ, DAoC, AC and many other old MMOs. That was back when there were fewer games to select from and slower leveling rates. Imagine what a hungry MMO player could rip through in today's market...

I think at most, I may have played 5 to 7 different MMOs in a 1 month span of time. I did not stick with any of them, but I downloaded, installed, created an account and logged in.

I do look askance at the votes in the upper brackets, but I remind myself that not everyone plays games the way I do :)

This is true..

 

However,these votes in the upper brackets could also be people just pulling your leg.

01-60  10%

 

Huge majority of titles don't fulfill my most fundamental and basic requirements, so pointless to take time to install them.

I haven't played that many, maybe scanned through them.  It's honestly hard to keep my attention with gaming, but I did do the basics such as DAOC, EQ I/II, WoW, etc.

I just did a quick count using the game list and I came up with 31.
