Crap game or good game, if there's no player base the game will shut down.

Financially...sure

But, some people (idiotic people) will use it as the flimsiest excuse not to play a game.

yeah, all that fansy "MM" part of mmorpg doesn't really matter now because every single game lean towards single player content.
players tend to play alone as well. all of this because games are way to simple, targetted for masses and not actual gameplay or balance.
god sometimes i wish i could make an AAA game that has none of those faults

it's actually funny how these people want a mmo with big playerbases but never reach out to make a friend i even found a game with 50 players tops really fun because i wasn't a shut in antisocial coward lol. I wouldn't have any reason to quit a game with at least 50-100 players unless the content itself is boring.

To me they kinda matter. They don't matter alot since the company could always be a complete fail and mess up and never listen to the community and release horrible games. But some games that got a bigger playerbase do sway me into checking them out since the larger the community the more people I'm likely to meet while playing the game.

Is it worth the time and money that MMORPGs put into high-end difficulty content?

Well, the game tries to get over 9000, but pretty much falls short every time.
