Morning Discussion

EVE Online's trial proved pleasing enough that I signed up for a one-month subscription. If it doesn't hold my interest beyond then, I'll simply have paid $20 to play a game for six weeks and I've happily paid more than that for games I played for far shorter periods.

What got me to fork out my hard-earned dough is the fact that I could transition directly from a free trial to a subscription without buying the full game. I've yet to play an MMO I feel would hold my interest for long but I enjoy poking around them, exploring the world and getting a good feel for it and think I would subscribe to many MMOs for a month or two if I didn't have to buy the game too. Oh well.
