When I asked my best friend to give it a try she told me that it would be too addictive for her and rather than risking getting stuck she preferred not trying at all. And I understand that point of view. If she knows herself well enough to realise that she would get too addicted, that's fine by me.

That was my reason for the longest time. My buddy played and I knew I'd just get sucked in... I resisted until my husband bought the game, but then I made my first toon, a human rogue. I completely sucked at it, and I was completely enthralled with the game. xD

That's the reason I didn't start playing at launch. I knew a lot of people who started playing the day Vanilla released, but I was still in college and I knew I couldn't spare the time. It wasn't 'til a period of unemployment after graduation, when my boyfriend at the time suggested I play on his account during the day if I needed something to do, that I finally started playing. And I proceeded to spend practically all day he was at classes and work playing WoW--it only was a week or two until he bought me my own copy of the game and we built an extra WoW box so I could play together with him. :D

This was my reason for avoiding MMOs, even though my friends kept asking me to try this or that game. I finally gave up when a friend sent me a trial invitation for WOW.

Addiction was my excuse as well. I failed college because of a RPG (baulders gate 2) and when my buddy tried to recruit me into WoW I flatly refused for 6 months. So for my birthday he bought me the game and a 3 month subscription. That was about 5 years ago. My warlock jut broke 200 days played while my hunter, and pally arent far behind

I think if you can honestly admit to yourself before you even try a game that you will get addicted to it then he/she has some major willpower issues/ identify issues that need addressing.
