    I took WoW so seriously, that I was able to sell my account for 2500$. I plan to take Rift a little easier, but still be immersed in it ;)

    Pretty seriously since I spend a (un)healthy amount of time playing them.

    I see life and death play out a lot where I work, I cant afford to take a game that serious or I'd have a nervous brake down. I play mmo's to relax and get away from reality so I'd say I can be passionate about the game but I don't treat it like a job which some people do.

    Right now I'm taking punctuation pretty seriously.

    please dont make this game like that try to help ppl if they dont now fights help them ,if they dont have the gear prolly invite them to ure guild and help them get a better gear , stuff like that thanks peace.
    Eh, bottom line is, people will play how they want and with whom they want. I'm a nice guy and more than willing to help people, but I look at raiding as a team effort and not a charity.

    Need help with a quest? Sure.

    Want me to hold somebody's hand and carry them through content for no apparent reason? Not gonna happen.

    As seriously as any other form of entertainment. After 9 hours of work, only thing on my mind is not to be serious and have fun in game.

    I will spend more time playing rift then I will spend working... mostly because I can choose how much I work or dont work. Which will be zero for a few weeks. I would miss my best friends funeral if it was on the day headstart started.

    Given I often tell people "Playing an MMO is not just a job or a career, simply put, it is a way of life." I think I take MMO time pretty seriously.

    I take it kind of seriously, I suppose, but not in the way you're meaning. I don't work all that hard at it, nor will I ever commit to any kind of mandatory raid schedule. However, what I *do* take seriously is the experience, itself. I try to stay true to the RP aspect. It's not about a healthy dose of "thee's" and "verily's", but more a fairly strong distaste for character names like "Rokarolla" and making up cutesy names for things like calling rangers "ranjas". I'm there to swing a sword, cast spells and kill orcs or other "otherworldly" critters. It's immersion I seek, not some juvenile chat room where I can hang out with the "cool kids".

    It's probably my age. I was weened on games like Zork I/II/III and various MUD's. They oozed immersion with their total reliance on story and imagination.

    Not at all. I take very seriously the investment of money to purchase them, and pay for their subscriptions though.

    But what it sounds like in the origional post, is a community problem. I think that alot of people whom play these games forget just how badly they needed help and gear to be as good as they are. I'm sure way "back in the day" when the dungeons were new people messed up and so did their guilds.

    Its not "handholding" to help a person get gear from running a dungeon or instance, unless of course you don't like them. Thats just people- thats all.

    As for people choosing to run with elite geared characters. I can tell you, as gameplay becomes more difficult it becomes a necessity. Now insisting that each and every character is twinked "for the win" is dubious at best. I mean, how do some of these people expect to find players with that good a gear, when nobody helps? Unless their looking for Ex members of another guild. I think if a crew of characters are that elite they have skill enough to help the under geared, as well as, constructive advice on how to play better- if needed.
