Give up. Seriously. Playing Anarchy Online, Asheron's Call, hell even PSO. That's all done.
Remember when PC games made you think. Like really think?
PC games were for the smart people, sans diablo and warcraft of course.
Deep, mentally engaging games that only a few understood.
Remember being a nerd was actually an insult? It didn't just mean you were some tight pants, hard rimed glasses wearing poser?
Being a "nerd" was not a trendy term, it was what you got called by the jocks as a serious insult. YOu could be a pussy and take it for what it was, or wear it as a badge of honor and find ingenious ways to have sex with their sisters/mothers/girlfriends.
Remember when you played an mmo in 1999 and thought "man I wonder what these games will be like in 10 years"?
Did you picture pandas? Did you picture a mindless pvp zerg gw2 grind? Did you picture psuedo pedophlia mixed with wanna-be action combat a la tera?
The Secret World is the only game that comes even remotely close to dreams. But it sells nothing. It's not even worth.
When you watched star trek and imagined it as a virtual world, did you you picture STO??
The first time you saw an original star wars movie, could you picture SWTOR?
SWTOR is a destruction of dreams.
But then I saw the video of the dude who made wing commander games wanting to make a new game. His vision is the vision. His vision of pc gaming in 2012 is accurate. What he wants to do is what should be done. It's what we should fork over our hard earned cash for. A sophisticated experience.
Not this gear grinding repetative garbage. Made for complete fucking morons.
I find it sad that when I sit down for video game time, and I maybe have an hour to play, that I end up playing a game that was released in 1994 over the plethora of modern games I have at my disposal.
The fact that an "old school" game can be more mentally stimulating than a new game is sad.
