Why do you think MMOs suck?

For me it comes down to lack of plot, monotonous activities, no character development or purpose and cash shops and monthly subs are evil things. What about you guys?

"Kill X and collect Y of Z"

Do that quest 10,000 times.

Having fun yet?

Monotony. Honestly, I can't see any way out of it either, since what other kinds of quests are there in such a world besides these 3?
-kill x
-get y
-got to z

Considering the world cannot go through drastic changes, kinda limits things...a LOT.

It's not that MMOs inherently suck but it seems like this topic is just begging people to list the flaws of WoW.

Or whine about horrible F2P disasters and imply that all MMOs are just as bad.

Good listing of flaws of PvE MMO gameplay. PvP can be pretty good, though. It's just been a while since a developer really commited to making a good PvP MMO and making it work.

-Other people are in the game

That's really the big one for me. I don't mind if a game plays like an MMO (FF12, KoA) but I can't stand other players in the same game as me.
