How addictive is WoW?

I've been thinking of getting a mmorpg, but I don't want to risk disapearing into the computer and getting fired for not going to work.

I've played EQ, and City of Heroes.

City of Heroes is vastly superior.

Getting into Guild Wars in about a week... but it's not exactly an MMO.  Sort of a hybrid.

I played Shadowbane and then Lineage2.  I put way way too much time into Lineage2 and followed my clan to WoW.  WoW didn't do it for me so I went back to Lineage2 and now I'm free of MMORPG's completely.  I have a feeling I'll back to L2 though :(

It seems I start to play the game and stay because of friends.

I was able to configure both EQ and City of Heroes to function off standard 1st-person controls.

The WASD + mouse controls cannot be beat... only made better by this guy:

Lineage 2 rocks.  I played, had a lvl 34 Treasure Hunter for teh win!  Anyways, I quit for EQ2, which I quit that because I didn't have enough time anymore.  Good times though.  The grind in L2 was horrid, but it gave me a feeling of accomplishment.  Best part about L2, open PvP . . you don't like someone?  Kill them!  Until I see a game in the "Next-Gen" MMORPG PC games, I'll be playing my beloved RTS's.

I haven't seen many MMORPG's in stores, it might be because i live in Australia. I had to get Star Wars Galaxies shipped, but i only played that for a month. I would like to get City of Heroes shipped too.

Meridian 59 - 1996

Everquest - 1999
Ashron's Call - 1999
Diablo II - 2000

Putting aside the fact that DII is not an MMORPG, it was hardly the first.

L2 lacked a lot of elements but had/has a lot of potentional.  The grind is bad but it's the reason a lot play the game.  The open PvP could destroy weeks (xp loss) or months (item loss) of effort in a few short PvP matches.  All of this made you build a strong trust with your clan because an action of a single clanmate fell onto the entire clan.
I played a lvl 60-something SwordSinger on Bartz.

I've played MMORPGs since Ultima Online, but I think Shadowbane has to be my favorite so far.  I play mostly for PvP, and Shadowbane did PvP very well.  Also, it had a completely player driven economy which I have yet to see since.

WoW is also immensely addictive. mmmmm

Diablo came out in 1996 and was also multiplayer, but that's still a really big stretch to call it an MMORPG.

Diablo was only 16 levels, and only four people could play a game at once.


That's not massive.


Same logic follows through with Diablo II.  And it's not even an RPG.  I mean c'mon people, just because it falls into the fantasy genre doesn't make it an RPG.


click-click-click-click-click-YOU WIN! hardly constitues an RPG.

It's as much an RPG as many of these current MMO's. And I refuse to believe that you don't know there was a lot more to D2 that click click click.

massive has never had anything to do with amount of levels, the name just happens to also apply there.  its always been about number of players, so the statement about diablo only have 4 plaeyrs would be correct.

diablo 2 was an rpg. rpg=role playing game= game wher eyou play the roll of a character and often build up said character over course of the game

I only ever played SWG,: my current box isn't up to WoW spec, and when I get it updated, I'll be playing City of Heroes and/or Auto Assault
I was a big player of Planetside tho, but thats more like a MMOFPS with a bigger killcount :)

I used to play UO since the Beta days... sigh.. it was never the same after Richard Garriot left.

IMO, UO was done so well that it was my bar or measure on all MMOs until WoW.  Even though the graphics weren't as fancy as the newer 3D ones, I thought it had the best world and mechanics.  Of course I'm a huge Ultima fan.

WoW is currently taking my very limited free time.

When Dungeon & Dragons Online comes out, I'll probably try do that one too.

oh, Kai.  I can't telnet to madrom.  connection refused.  any idea?

I played UO when i was a kid for about 5 years.  It was and still is the best MMORPG ive seen.  I watched my friend play ff11 and i was like wtf why cant you make clothes or chairs?  where is your llama?!!  when i was on uo i played on free servers so it didnt cost a dime plus they had all custom scripts to include races and stuff.

WoW is ridiculously addictive, i cant get enough of it, only drawback is you have to pay

guildwars is meant to be good too, you only have to pay for the cds for them then you can play without paying,

and legend of mir 2 is meant to be good too, though i wouldnt say its as good as WoW or Guildwars

apologies if these have been mentioned, i tend just to scan through large topics like these

I got Guild Wars today and have been dying to bring it up. Now that i have a chance i have nothing to say about it.

I've only ever played another MMO which was SWG, and it beats it hands down, the fact that their is no monthly fee's makes it better from the get go, and they way that it has been made is brilliant. I can't wait to start playing some heavy PvP action, however, i need to train my puny lvl 6 monk/elementalist.
