I played for five years in SWG since open beta. It has been two years in Eve Online and two years in LOTRO. Right now I am on break from Eve and LOTRO to check out AoC.

~4.5 years with WoW. Though I haven't played it in... about 6 months, and ever since the first year into Burning Crusade I've basically been off/on it, sometimes taking breaks for months.

Runescape I played for maybe 2-3 years (before WoW even came out).

I might've played Phantasy Star Online for 2 years *shrug*

Pretty much every other MMO I've played has only been less than one year, or if I've played it over the years it's very intermittently.

Guild Wars - played it the most, and for by far the longest now.

Been with my babe FFXI since NA release in late 2003, so about 6.5 years.

We've taken a few breaks, a couple for nearly 6 months, but we always seem to get back together. :)

Until someone gets warriors right, I will never love another MMORPG... *sniff*

I still come back to CoH every once in a while, but I think those booty calls will stop once APB comes out. I'm crushing hard!

Definitely Guild Wars, though I am just too burnt out on it now to get back into it, try as I might.

If we consider MUDs, my longest relationship has been with Lost Souls MUD, which I started playing in 1994 and still log into occasionally.

Otherwise, it's probably Guild Wars.

I've played Guild Wars the longest of all MMO's. Of all subscription-based MMO's, EVE Online is the one I've been playing the longest.

5 1/2 years with EQ2. I was there for the original launch and my subscription has never lapsed. The game has changed amazingly in that time. I was actually pouring over old update notes just for the heck of it, and perhaps an idea for a future blog update, when it struck me just HOW much it has changed! Some of the things we've taken for granted for years now were not always present! :)

I started Asheron's Call in beta and am still a full time player. I've been giving them sub money every month since the launched, and will continue to do so until the last sunset on Dereth.

I've played everything else that's come out since, and I keep getting drawn back to AC. I can't explain it, but Turbine has done something that's captured me completely.

Eve Online since 03. Put about 3 years into SWG, and almost 4 into WoW.

Eve's the only one I'm still playing atm.

EVE Online. I started playing just before Revelations launched and have played consistently since the Trinity expansion.

Payed up to 2013 with ISK so no chance of leaving anytime soon.

GuildWars for certain... was in the beta.. played a good bit but saw issues with Henchmen, when Nightfall introduced heroes I went back to GuildWars and has been with it ever since.. so around 4.5 years or so and still going.

LOTRO since may 07. Having a Lifetime account will probably ensure that LOTRO remains my longest played by default, barring some disaster like Turbine going under or something.

Meh, I think I spent a year with WoW... Now I can't hold an MMO for more than a month without getting bored of it...

I really can't remember if it was UO or WoW for me. I served several stints in each for a total of about two years.

Ahh gaming, a life well wasted.
