Top 5 AAA MMOs you couldn't uninstall quickly enough

AdiarisAdiaris RomePosts: 381Member

Hello all, 

I often come across top 5 this or that and it got me thinking about something, what were the top 5 AAA MMOS I lasted LEAST in and was all too happy to uninstall from my computer? Personally, I was surprised to discover that I seem to have a lot less tolerance the more recent the release is. Getting old? Games not clinching those early levels? Getting tired of MMOs? Who knows. 

Anyway, here is the list. What does your look like?

1) TSW

Literally a few hours on one of the beta weekends. I own the game so I'll give it another shot but it just did not do it for me at all.

2) RIFT

Maybe 1 day of playing, again no specific reason beyond it just completely failing to grab me (not a fan of the artstyle though, or anything else really). I did go back to it later during Rift Lite but never managed to work up enough of an interest to actually sub.

3) SWTOR

10 days give or take.  It's Star Wars (huge fan) but I just couldn't hack it. After 10 days of light gameplay and spacebaring through quests I decided I had had enough. 

4) CO

About two weeks. I love superhero games but it performed incredibly badly on my machine and I was sick of putting up with crap FPS so just went back to CoX.

5) WAR

A few weeks. Was fun at the beginning but towards the end of the level grind I started to realize how meh it was and how much of the promised game just never made it to the game.

    No particular order, but definitely up there.

     

    1. Aion

    The icky grind and annoying theme with extreme lag in some PvP areas made me want to go back to WoW. I didn't, but I wanted to.

     

    2. Allods

    Just not good IMO.

     

    3. Guild Wars (At release. I went back and played it a bit later though.)

    Way, way too single player for me at the time. I remember being wholly against personal instanced zones. It felt like a lesser version of an MMORPG at the time.

     

    4. Vanguard (At release, no clue about quality now. Everyone hypes it though.)

    Holy bug alert, Batman! I want my fucking money back.

     

    5. TERA

    The quest system nearly made my head explode. If I have to go back and forth between NPCs one more time... *pop*

    !) TSW - The combat was so bad I just couldnt take it....lasted about a week in closed beta before deleting

    2) Rift - FElt like the most generic game I ever played.....When I went to do one of the tradeskills and it was an exact duplicate of WoWs ehchanting I deleted it immediately

    3) FFXI - I heard what a great grouping game this was so gave it a try...TOok me over an hour just to find my way out of the first town.....Killed my first monster, asked a couple of questions, then after getting rude responses in chat I deleted....Was disappointed because the community was supposed to be good in the game.

    4) LoL - Heard how great this game was and how many people played it then I tried it....Didnt even last a day....Some games you  cantell are bad right off the bat and this one was for me

    5) Vindictus - THis game did nothing for me.....Felt like a single player game from the get go....the combat wasnt as fun as it was reported.

    Ooh. Completely forgot about that one, but it's in my top 5 for sure and for pretty much the same reason.

    1. Anarchy Online

    why?

    From my view point Champions Online was a good game until PWE took over Cryptic and began making the game fit their, money grubbing model.

  • BeansnBreadBeansnBread PshPosts: 5,499Member Uncommon

    I forgot about FFXIV. That one is way up there for me. I was a Final Fantasy fan as a kid and was actually somewhat looking forward to what they had to offer. I played in BETA and threw up for 3 straight weeks.

  • newbinatornewbinator LA, CAPosts: 780Member

    SW:TOR, nothing about it impressed me. Felt totally generic and bland. And voice acting is not a feature I care about in MMO's.

  • PhryPhry HampshirePosts: 6,289Member Uncommon

    1. Aion, took me 9 days, didnt even complete the free trial month. Still the game only cost a tenner..so no real loss.

    2. Star Trek Online, i tried to like it, but, the game wouldnt let me.. played for well over 2 weeks, and even tried again once.. but never ever again..

    3. APB..  so much promise and so little delivered.. still can't believe the cars steered like a house brick.. with shopping trolley wheels..

    4. GW1...  meh.. it reminded me of just about every F2P game that ever existed..

    5. Everquest 2.. it was supposed to be the new updated next best thing after EQ1..  it wasnt.. at the time it even struggled to run on a half decent system.. which sadly.. mine wasnt. image

  • CyclopsSlayerCyclopsSlayer Minneapolis, MNPosts: 532Member

    1. SWTOR  (so-so single player RPG... oh wait this is supposed to be a MMO??)

    2. WAR  (no concept of balance, FotM all the way)

    3. AoC  (great until L20 and you leave the isle of Tortage, then you have to wonder where the game went)

    4. Tera  (played betas, boring gamepley, ridiculous weapon grahics)

    5. FFXIV (there wasn't even a single redeeming feature, not 1)

  • PerramasPerramas TanelornPosts: 83Member Uncommon

    My top 5 fastest uninstalls are

     

    1 Horizons - It was a laggy buggy pile of crap that I removed from my PC after a couple of hours. It was so bad they renamed the game later to Istaria.

     

    2 Shadowbane was another real buggy game that had multiple client crashing bugs. sb.exe error had me removing the game after dozens of crashes in three hours.

     

    3 Asherons Call 2 The music and band playing kept me playing for a week the no NPCs, no entering buildings and bland world had me leaving after a week.

     

    4. Darkfall was buggy unbalanced and had a pile of exploits. Add in the macroing and cheating and I was gone before the first month was up.

     

    5. Matrix online crappy animations and movement plus bugs and bland gameplay had be out of the game before the first month.

     

     

    FUncom putting the FU in fun since 1993.

     LOL.Many will be  doing the same.I played BWE 1&2 and decided to get my pre purchase back.Fairplay to Arenanet though they gave it me no problem at all :)

    1 - FF14 1 hour beta and couldn't handle 7 menus to harvest a rock.

    2- AoC 1 week beta,to be fair though my pc back then wasn't great so this game maybe ok.

    3- Aion logged in so exited and the world was just to blue and purple.Just didn't like combat or cute mode beaver mobs trying to kill me.

    4- WoW Free trial 3 hours or so.apart from the oh so terrible character models and cartoont graphics a level 54 player followed me around for 10 minutes clicking on dual,I was level 4. Uninstalled it forever.

    5 - GW2 Zergfest.Don't like combat.Everyone is DPS dodge class.Just not for me.

    I only payed for Aion out of these so my advice is try and beta or trial them first :)

    Gnome Wankers two.After the events of 18/07/2015 i fucking hate anyone that has anything to do with skyforge

    FFXIV was the only one I ever bought and was like.. "Wow, so this is what having a wake-up call is like?"

    My fault really. I just followed the yes-man reviews and figured Square was a top notch company that made many games I liked before.

    Boy did they get a lot of cash from me for no good reason.

    Yeah yeah, 2.0 crap all you want. 

    First impressions go a long way and quite frankly I'd like to see them out of the MMO genre now.

    I didn't buy RIFT or SWTOR just because I played 2 years of WoW and had my fill of anything they had to offer.

    Champions Online I only played F2P, and yeah. It wasn't City of Heroes, a game I have 5 years logged in.

    Vanguard was the only pre-order I ever cancelled. It had me thinking I was a savvy shopper. You know, until that whole FFXIV business came a long. Now I question what milk I buy.

    a yo ho ho

    Nope, hate them all.  I only try dozens of them so because I have nothing better to do with my free time.  It also gives me material to harass the mmorpg.com forum goers.

    Was that the answer you were hoping for?

    I liked UO and EverQuest.

    I enjoyed WoW for a time, and I think Shadowbane was one of the last real attempts at a world building MMO that was fun.

    So yeah, I like MMORPGs. I'm done with MMOFollowTheTrails.

    Give me a living world again. Or at least something different. Like PuzzlePirates. That game's great compared to SWTOR.

    Oh wow, someone else also played Matrix Online. Damn shame about how it all went down becuase it had serious potential and actually tried new things by truckload.
