Is 240 hours so short a time...?

I've only really ever played wow....2000 arena rank, tried raiding, and I'm just really over the game in general. The next MMO I'm waiting for is GW2, but who knows how long until I get to sink my teeth into that. Which brings me to these two games. Rifts graphics look good, and the world pve rifts are a definite plus, I just worry that it will be too much like wow. DCU, I've heard good and bad, I just wanted some opinions of people that have it. Is there a lot to do? Is it pretty active right now?

Thanks for any advice
Neither. Play EVE if you want to try a real mmo.

For a MMO where you pay a subscription, yeah I think so. Normally, of course not. If I played a single player RPG for that long I'd be stoked.

Imo, a MMO should at least have close to 800 hours or so of "varying" content. Right now rift probably has that much, but ALL it is is repeating dungeons to get better gear to do "harder" dungeons which are the same one you did when you were lvling.

You can level cap in DCU in less than a week. Not 24/7 gaming either. You get to do that for little to no endgame(drunken purchase). Haven't played Rift, but it looks like a pass to me.
