The Daily Grind: Have you ever had to try an MMO multiple times before getting into it?

Feelings felt

I have literally lost count at this point of how many times I’ve seen posts on the Final Fantasy XIV subreddit from someone saying that they tried the game X times before it finally “clicked” for them. Part of the reason for that is that I wasn’t trying to keep count in the first place, but the other part is that… well, it’s a common sentiment! I see it a lot of the time, and every time it’s a matter of trying a different class or just getting far enough along in the story when suddenly everything changed and the author was like “oh, this is actually awesome.”

This is one of those things I can’t really relate to from personal experience; the games I enjoy have usually clicked with me early enough that it hasn’t required multiple attempts to finally get into them, with the possible exception of The Elder Scrolls Online (and that was the difference between beta and the much-improved well-after-launch version). But what about you? Have you ever had to try an MMO multiple times before getting into it?
