Umm, not to be the one guy swimming against the flow around here, but TSW is actually quite fun (imo) although it is suffering from a lack of end game content atm.

The reason why it's suffering is a mass exodus to Guild Wars 2, which has the added bonus of no monthly sub.

I'm a member of TOG ( and we went from having a fairly thriving TSW presence (a guild for each faction, 100+ players) to having mebbe 10 actives, or less, after GW2 went live.

And while I don't think MMO's are dying, we are in a period of time where more games are coming out than any one person could ever hope to play. Currently I'm splitting time between:

Firefall beta
Planetside 2 beta
MWO Beta
World of Tanks
Random assorted other MMOs which I can still access, Lotro, DDO, EQ2
Annnnnnd more steam games than I can poke a stick at

And I haven't even touched the latest crop of single player stuff (Darksiders, Sleeping Dogs etc) which I'm interested in but have zero time to play.

Back in "the day" (that day being 2000-2004ish), we'd get one major MMO release every couple of years, so we had plenty of time to dedicate to playing one game. Now we have multiple major releases in the space of 4 months...
