We like to talk about when we leave games; we don't like to talk about when we come back to the same games yet again.

Coming back to an MMO after an extended leave of absence can be a trial in and of itself.

There and back again... A writer's return to Lord of the Rings Online

Returning to an MMO after an eight-month absence, after barely playing for a month, is like waking up in a strange grocery store after a vicious blow to the head left you with amnesia. You've got this shopping list in your hands, but you've got absolutely no idea where any of these items are. It...
