The addiction potential - I don't consider myself entirely immune from obsessing over games, and MMORPG have a reputation in that respect
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.
Reports that most quest content is very simple in nature, mostly fetch and kill quest.
Having more single player RPGS in my ever expanding backlog than I can possibly ever play.
