Why do people hate MMOs?

I don't mean "dislike" or just don't want to play those type of games... but I mean truely hate. Like if a topic about MMOs came up, they'll say vile things about them like some MMO, in the past, stole their candy.

MMORPGs are like the worst part of regular RPGs stretched out over hundreds of hours.

I don't hate MMO's unless you are referring to MMORPG's even then I would just say I dislike them mainly because they are a cash grab with mainly a very repetitive gameplay mechanic and you are pretty much paying $15 a month so you can be social.

Because they fundamentally don't get the genre. If I had a nickel for every misguided twit who complained about the solo aspect of WoW being dull I'd have at least enough to pay for another month of WoW.

More and more, it feels like I'm doing a really bad impersonation of myself.

Kill X and collect Y of Z.

That's all there is.

This basically. Stuff like that is very addictive, yet so hollow. I don't think anyone actually truly hates them. Or then there are, dunno.

I think there are several reasons why people often dislike MMO's

-A lot of the content is created through repetition
-Many MMO's require a large time investment to be able to play endgame content
-MMO players often do not play anything else, and are often not gamers in the broader sense
-The MMO genre has been really stagnant, and new games released over the last decade have largely disappointed.
-Most MMO's follow the same blueprint, and there is the general feeling that there is not enough variation.
-A lot of people criticizing MMO's have played them and got burnt out on them.
