middle earth

I'm having a hell of a time deciding on whether or not I should choose the $9.99/month option for the Lord of the Rings Online MMORPG, or the "lifetime" offer, which is a one-time fee of $199, and allows you to play as long as the game is going on! I love the idea of being able to come back in 15 years and play, haha, but I can't really afford the two hundred dollars at the moment. AND, I have to decide by tomorrow! As in, May 24. Bah!

It seems that most MMORPGs lose their non-hardcore players somewhere between one and two years after they start playing. Do you think you'll be playing for at least twenty months? Or do you think you'll want the option of "coming and going" from the game as you please? If so, then $199 is a pretty good price. On the other hand, with so many MMOs out there (and more in the works), my hunch is that monthly rates aren't like to go up--and may very well go down--so paying month to month might be an excellent option, too!
