Mmo Ocd?

So here I am, sitting night after night wondering what Mmo to play, looking through videos, news blogs, reviews and screenshots.  
I look at several games and sometimes I get to the point where I think "Hey I'll subscribe to this one, I'll play it for years to come" but the simple fact is, I won't and I will only play for days to comes, I simply cannot hold onto an mmo for a long period of time, the only mmo(s) I have held onto for a period of time would be, The World Of Warcraft in which I played for atleast 4 months straight and then off and on after that, then I had played Guild Wars for a good 4-6 months and then off and on, but after those two I have played nothing for longer then a month, but the funny thing of this all is that, I feel like I need to play an Mmo, I'm not addicted to any single game but the genre in general, I really feel like I need to play one, even now as I type this. 
 
The whole feeling of a massive world where you and thousands of others can explore, battle and help each other out for a common goal is something that really "Clicks" with me, it just feels good to log on and socialize with some online friends (yes I have outside friends) and help them out with a quest or maybe just relax and fish by a beautifully rendered lake. 
I almost get an urge, sometimes when I'm at work (I'm 18 I work at a drug store) I just want to run home, download *insert mmo name* and play it right away, but then when I get in game and play for a while I feel like my high is over, and thats it. 
Half of my fun comes from watching the videos, building me up to the point of playing the game and then when I start I feel like "Why the fuck did I subscribe to this shit" and It's not that I don't like them obviously, it's just maybe I need to find the right one or something, but this is a huge mess of a blog now and I totally lost whatever it was I was trying to describe, so I'll just leave this off the forum. 
 
So overall, I feel like I need to play an mmo, I subscribe, I play for maybe 1-5 days then quit, then look for another, I'm waiting for Aion currently, maybe this will be the Mmo I play for years to come ; )

I play World of Warcraft and I love it. Personally I have a mild case of OCD for real and it sounds more like you meant MMO ADD not OCD.

Well I do have mild OCD in real life as well,  so I'm not sure if it carries over into me and mmo's but who knows, maybe it is ADD lol.

I actually own COH and COV but I only did the 7 day trial and quit, I might give it another go.

Believe me, I do the same thing; I've played WoW, EVE, WAR, Conan, GW, CoH/V, and several free ones like Perfect World and Runescape. In the end, though, the only two I still play today is WoW and EVE. WoW simply because the ease of play and accessibility of it while still remaining deep and interesting. And EVE, well, EVE is more to do with my want for a true sandbox MMO where the world is not "go here do this, level, then go there and do it again" but is instead directly reflective of player actions. That said, it's not for everyone.
I may drop WoW when Old Republic comes out which I think may be the game that best reflects what I want out of an MMO and what I end up getting out of both.
