Do you think it will last? I want to make sure the money I spent is not wasted, when in months from now there won't be anyone to enjoy playing the game with.
Rift is no more expensive to buy the game than say any other high end PC game like Oblivion or Crisis, etc. And those games people usually beat in a matter of days or weeks, then never play them again. Rift, as an MMO, has tons of "replay" ability where stand alone games do not. The point I'm making is that Rift, is worth no less of your money than any single player game that you purchase for the same price ($50-60). If you only play it for the first month's included game time, then you have wasted nothing.
Now my opinion, Rift is great and I enjoy it more than WoW (3 1/2yrs played), but you will have to make up your own mind on that.
