Yeah I played EQ, daoc, Asherons Call.. But I also had that feeling in Vanilla WoW and up to the first part of the Lich King. Considering that it wasn’t that long ago, I have to assume that mmos still have that power over me. Perhaps too many companies are trying to jump on the band wagon and are just Crapping out mmos to get a subscription fee.
Spending almost 200 bucks on new mmos in the past year and not playing them for more than 2 weeks. I really hope that what I fear isn’t true.
I want a game that Makes me want to quit my job, lock my self into a closet with my computer and refuse to believe my real name isn’t my characters name.
Of course I would never admit that to anyone i actually know in real life.
Remember when you were playing an MMO and it was all you could think about at work? Looking at your watch itching to get home to defend your realm, or go on that awesome raid, or what ever it was. I really miss that feeling.
When you ACTULY had to decide to go to the irl party or goto the raid
Its been almost 2 years, I refuse to believe that the magic is gone. I really hope that its not that I’m losing interest in the genre and its more that the quality of the games are going down hill.
Here’s to 2012... Hope it gets better!
The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.
The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, solo Questing, Cut-Scenes...
