The High Rate of Burnout in MMOs

The extraordinary rise of the Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) during the early 2000s was an exciting time in gaming. Being able to adventure and interact with players in a self-contained gaming world is an exhilarating experience that unifies players from all corners of the globe in the quest to slay epic dragons and claim their legendary loot. However, gamers who are well versed in MMOs know far too well that the personal price to deck out their avatars with all the gear, weapons, skills and in-game currency can leave them debilitated and eager to leave the world behind. (DC Universe Online, Guild Wars 2, PC, PS3, Star Wars:The Old Republic, World of Warcraft, Xbox 360)
