As the current author of our Choose My Adventure column, I was going to open this off by saying that a month isn’t really enough for me to get attached to an MMO. But that’s not true; within a month of starting Star Trek Online back near its launch, I was hooked. I still look at it fondly and follow the game, even though it’s hardly my main title at the moment. The attachment is there.
Other games take longer. I think it took a good half a year before I felt really attached to Final Fantasy XIV, I certainly wasn’t attached to City of Heroes until a few months into my second attempt to enjoy the game, and it did take about three before World of Warcraft became a main game for me in the heady days of launch. So what about you, dear readers? How long does it take you to get attached to an MMO? When do you consider the game a big part of your gaming habits and/or history?
