      Depends on what you are looking for. Its one of the online games that my wife and I play occasionally. Though right now its in a lull waiting for the next expansion so there is something to do in the game. Eve is another decent game, just wasn't enough interaction in my experience to make it worthwhile.

      Download the demo for WoW and see it for yourself.

        My problem was I could never get far enough for the expansion to be any use to me. Seemed like it was hours of the same thing - grinding trying to get to a higher level, and it became quite repetitive quickly, especially considering it could take days of constant playing time to gain a level

        EVE on the other hand...I tried the demo, and I don't think I actually saw anyone else in the game. I've heard that can be dull too, but honestly, I haven't played it enough to have much of an opinion.

          I never understood why I should a) pay for the game and b) keep paying to be allowed playing it.

          Not worth it in my eyes.

            Exactly my thoughts as well, Floris. I don't think I'm going to bother with it afterall...

              You should be teaming up with people and running quests. Doing quests and instances, you can be in the expansion in 8 days of playing time.

                Depends on what you are interested in. Been paying for online games since the mid-80s. You meet people, join communities and create friendships. There are free games out there but the quality lacks and there is no troll control.

                  The same reason you renew your vB support and/or license yearly.

                    I went with the similair GuildWars in the end. No subscription fees. Screw WoW.

                      I think we shouldn't be paying for vBulletin then.

                        Yeah but you don't have to keep paying to use vBulletin. I don't know why everyone is jumping on Floris about this...

                          I agree that most online games aren't worth paying for, having said that I've started playing EVE again , great game if you're more interested in the corporation and back stabbing kind of game.

                          WoW is cool too but I found it overly repetitive

                            Everything in life is repeitive.

                              Oh WoW, a topic on Wow!
                              I just started playing about a week ago, at the perseverance and pressure of my friends. I started the 10 day trial and found the game so fun I bought it a few days later.

                              I'm pretty sure the only reason people wouldn't find it fun is if they don't have any friends who play. I've been playing a little bit every day and have found the game so much fun to play with friends. I'm sure if I was doing it alone it wouldn't be as interesting, but then again I'm sure I could just make friends with people in the game, anyway.

                              Coming from Final Fantasy XI to WoW has helped, as well, as many of same ideas are interchangeable with maybe a slight name-change and some different stats.

                              As for paying monthly: so what? It's $15 or so a month for a fun game that has a pretty high quality level. I'm sure I could find some free games that have the same kind of idea behind them, but don't have the same standard of quality. Even still, if you decide not to play for a while and not pay, your character will still be there when you decide to come back.

                              The developers and all the other staff at the WoW section of Blizzard obviously are given great incentives to produce an awesome game. If paying a small fee results in them working hard, taking care of the servers, bug fixes and the like, while still having new stories come out that I can play and have fun exploring a pretty massive world, then the paltry fee is more than worth it.

                              In the end it's individual choice; if someone wants to play a very high quality MMORPG that has a high population, they'll most likely pay a monthly fee. If they're cheap or don't want to pay a monthly fee, they can always find some game that's most likely second rate (at best) or has a low population.

                              As for the VBulletin connection, it's hard to draw an accurate comparison. I suppose it would be like comparing the leased VB license to that of phpBB or the like. One is a standard that requires someone to pay. The other has a large community of people working on it, but not as motivated as they don't actually have an income relying upon it. In the end, I feel it's better to pay for quality than settle for complacency.
