    UO is my one and only at the moment. Used to play Neopets (grandkids loved it). Used to play Zoo Tycoon. If UO ever goes away, I don't plan to try another MMO.

    A bunch of us have signed up for Shroud of the Avatar, which is still in development.

    I've played WoW in the past but not anymore. A few months ago I played Star Trek Online OBSESSIVELY until I hit level 50, then logged off and never played again. If I sit down and play Fallout 3 or New Vegas (on the XBox) I'll do the same thing--play obsessively a while then just walk away for a year or so. It's mostly UO for me.

    It's still pre-alpha and only available certain times. You make a pledge (I think the lowest one now is $45) and that gives you basic membership and access during the times it is open.

    If you are interested there's usually at least a bit of talk about it at the end of the PaxLair meeting, which is tonight at 9pm. There will be people there who know a lot about it. Lots of Pax folks have signed up and are trying to make a new PaxLair in SotA.

    Ragnarok Online 2, a little Rift, some Neverwinter, a little Secret World

    I don't MMO a lot, maybe like 2 hours a week total between any combination

    I doubt it. It'll probably last as long as his last MMO, Tabula Rasa

    I play a ton of Dark Souls 2, but that isn't really an MMO. Been thinking of hoping back into Guild Wars 2 though. Will probably have to make a new character (AGAIN) because of the changes to my old one that made me leave hehe.

    I played UO in the first years, then played EQ intensly for 7 years, then WoW, then back to UO, and only UO for now, except for SotA releases.

    seems like we all come back to UO eventually. :)
    its just hard to go wrong with a game that offers SO much. and even at 15+ years it still has room for growth.
    I do take breaks from UO but im always drawn back to it. not so for the other MMO out there like WOW or AION or EQ
    I did love FF11 but the learning curve and amount of time needed to have any meaningful play experience was too much for me to compromise with. In UO if I only have 10-15 minutes , I can get SOMETHING accomplished , not so much with the others

    I have a Neverwinter account but I haven't played for some months. I did want to try the new Icewind Dale stuff but it is level-gated and I'm too lazy to grind to level 60. Also I've been playing a lot of Dark Souls 2 lately too - with Victor as well!
