I cant believe Second Life is still that popular (looking at the chart)
Hype and expectation certainly gets you initially into these games. I was caught up in SW myself. Lots of mates playing, even the ones who swore they would never play an mmo again - that SW license was a pretty big worm on a hook
But then eventually I just feel like I'm running between groups of bad guys and hitting the same keys, over and over. I'm speaking here about any mmo - although that feeling really hit hard for SW for me.
And now gw2 has lost my interest. Its not that its a bad game (far from it), but it doesnt seem all that different.
Tera gets brownie points for the lack of tab-targetting - but the quests were just awful...
