Fun and Fatigue

How much fun are MMO players really having with their current game? And which players are the most likely to quit because they're bored? Four questions in a recent survey explored these issues:

- How much fun are you having with your current MMO?
- How likely are you to quit in the next month?
- Would you sell your account for $200?
- How excited are you about experiencing content (skills, spells, dungeons, etc.) you haven't seen yet?

With regards to the amount of fun with the current MMO, there were no age differences. Players of all ages were having comparable levels of self-reported fun. There was a mild gender differences. Female players reported having more fun overall than male players. A multiple regression with player motivations as predictors found a weak model (r-squared = .06) where the Socializing motivation emerged as the best predictor of current fun. The more a player chats and socializes in an MMO, the more likely they report having fun.
