There's a post on Polygon listing the top MMOs by Revenue. The top one, obviously, is World of Warcraft. However, the second is Lineage, and the fourth is SW:TOR, which I find very odd. This isn't a lifetime revenue measure, either; it's the last year. The top four here made more than $100 million in that time.
There are some games on there that I've only barely heard of, too: TERA:Online is not on my radar at all, likewise Blade and Soul, and RIFT. And I've really only heard of Lineage 2 by way of it's predecessor. Looks like I'm more out of touch than I thought - or else I'm paying attention to a very Western-only section of the MMO demographic, and not getting much from the Korean-focussed market where Lineage and its relatives are popular.
