Try some SciFi MMORPG for a change. There are really tons of them out there.
Some with notable success, like Eve Online or Anarchy Online.
About MMORPG sucking all your life: this is actually not news, everything you do in your entire life requires time management. That includes entertainment. If you fail to manage it, all sorts of really bad results can come, ofc.
At the core, the question is: do you really need to be number one? If yes, expect a huge effort to be required if you want to succeed.
Oh, unless you are still dreaming that you can reap big rewards with no or close to no efforts at all.
