I've never played an MMO, but I've been a gamer since 1993. I know the topic is focused on MMO's, but as a FPS/RTS gamer I've noticed the same thing with my prefered genres.

Diablo three, a few guys i know were doing the Beta testing you can link the game to your paypal account then auction off items from in the game for real world money in either ingame or (from my understanding) private auctions.
the guys i know have already set up there paypal accounts so when the release (i think pre summer this year as the date has been bumped back again) finally happens they can find whatever makes cash, then troll and farm the game making enough money to get drunk at the weekend through gaming....
i had a few choice words to say about this!!
i like to tell myself i have just got much better at games
i suppose it comes down to how you play and the game types you play, there days i soley play either FPS's online or RPG games, i dont touch online RPG/MMORPG games anymore as they are soul and life destroying and it may end my family
i like getting the sensitivity cranked up and change what weapons im using all the time, essentially set myself personal goals.. but i know what you mean, in game missions in any game type now bore me to death, bland, short and easy levels/missions/bosses.

Im not going to get too into this, even though I have alot of different thoughts on the subject, being someone whos played a handful of MMOs and videogames in the past. What youre talking about is exactly the reason I despise most games, fighting the same things over and over again for a slim chance of getting a rare item, spending countless hours standing around waiting to claim a rare monster, ect ect. I just cant see the entertainment in this anymore. I bought a game called Batman: Arkham Asylum and I played the game, it was like a movie and I enjoyed the experience. Playing an online game where you do the same levels over and over in hopes of getting a digital +1 sounds like a second job to me.edit on 27-1-2012 by tehdouglas because: (no reason given)

Depends what games you play, go and buy Bioshock if you've never played it.
Not so easy and very indepth.

Just stay away from the mainstream games. The only challenging one lately is Dark Souls/Demon Souls, but there are still challening games out there just not ones which are as hyped. You just have to dig around more. Check out the russian game company 1C games they have quite a fews challening games, i find their difficulty rarely dissapoints. Here is the list.
