WoW, as always, is what you make of it. Five years in and I'm still having a blast - and amazingly enough still meeting truly new (as in just started playing wow now) players. I've had my ups and downs, as in anything else, but I'm content and happy every time I see that log in screen. I've taken my vacations - visited warhammer, LotRo, still jump on EvE a few times a week, and unfortunately bought the collector edition of STO (pile of steaming trash be sure). But I never really step away from WoW. I figure it's got at least another 5 years of prime time play left in it. If Blizz keeps it fresh it could just keep going on and on, - the Simpsons and South Park have shown that you can attain longevity even in the age of ADHD lol.

Agreed, it's what you make of it. I've found that my quality time on WoW (and my wife's time as well) can be very on-again, off-again... A week off here, two months there, nine months away, six months on. But I find it's got less to do with the game than with the "environment"--friends, guildies, a specific point in leveling or progression.I guess in some respects I am a casual player, although when I am "on" I am spending nearly as many hours a week in WoW as I am at work. When it's fun, I'll grab on with both hands. When it's not, I don't linger, and I don't sulk about it.
