For the next few years, I played RO on a very casual basis. After the 1-month subscription my friend bought me ran out, I was forced to take a break from the game for a while. I eventually decided to buy the 30-hour subscription which only cost $7.99 since my parents were still paying my credit card as I continued my college studies. ("Study first, no work," they told me.) Not only was it easier for my parents to see this meager charge on my credit card statement a few times a year, the 30-hour subscriptions also worked with my school schedule since I certainly would not play enough to justify paying for monthly subscriptions.
As time went on, I began seeing less and less of my high school friends logging in to play. It wasn't long before only Riaru's player was still logging in from time to time to play. And even then more of her time was being spent on bigger and better MMORPGs.
That's not to say I haven't done any MMORPG hopping on my own. I tried out World of Warcraft in 2009, Lord of the Rings Online some time after, and a bunch of other MMORPGs both big and small. Time and time again, I couldn't help but return to RO, where Internet gaming really took off for me. Sure, other games are much bigger and better than RO, but it still holds a place in my heart with its 2D characters and overpowered monsters.
Before I knew it, I was the only one of my high school friends who still plays RO...
