I think MMORPG's can be good, they just lack long term playability. Once you've raised through the ranks, gained millions in currency and have all the benefits you spent that last god knows how many days trying to attain, there's not much to stay around for.

Of course, I have yet to play a game that long. I eventually got bored of Galaxies because I was simply spending my time grinding away experience points to get to the next level. That's not fun, that's like working only not getting paid. Still, City of Heroes and World of Warcraft look alright, better than many of the current crop of MMORPGs that's for sure.

If I was ever to play a MMORPG, it would be FFXI.

But I still don't want to play a MMORPG - it's not worth it.

MMORPGs suck ass anyway. They're full of complete geeks, and it takes hours of killing rats/bats/big toads to be able to do anything, and even then it's only killing slightly bigger rats/bats/big toads

Don't foget you are mainly paying for the developers time in creating patches, extra content etc as well as the server costs, this alone should justify most of the fee's you paying for games such as Star Wars Galaxies.

Well, to be honest if I were you I wouldn't bother trying to get my brain to do anything and just go on general instinct instead.
