Hmmm, I have no own experience on MMORPG. I have shunned them for a number of reasons:
  1. Cost of subscription - I guess this is not necessarily an issue anymore since everything is "F2P"
  2. Reports of player griefing or simply lots of out of character chatter
  3. The addiction potential - I don't consider myself entirely immune from obsessing over games, and MMORPG have a reputation in that respect
  4. Reports of lots of grinding and enormous time requirements to really get anywhere, or to participate in the interesting aspects like guilds, high level content, etc.
  5. Reports that most quest content is very simple in nature, mostly fetch and kill quest.
  6. Having more single player RPGS in my ever expanding backlog than I can possibly ever play.

Wrong or right? I am still thinking of giving LOTRO a try, simply because I want to walk around in Middle Earth.
