2 years, 2 months and 16 days since I've spent $ on a new MMO

xKopogeroxxKopogerox ShebattPosts: 68Member

That's how long it's been since anything new could appeal to me and counting...

My MMORPG experience goes back to 2001. I'm playing a free to play MMO to kill the time (not because it's free, but because for me it's the best possible option).

So, how long it's been since you've spent $ on a new MMO? :)

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Am I the only one who heard Sinead O'Connor singing here?

    GW2 game purchase was my last.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    don't think it will go F2P, since its like gw2 B2P with CS for fashion and boosts, but waiting for a lower price can happen :)

     

    2 weeks I bought age of wushu so that was the last one I did buy, before that was Gw2, and i'm done don't ahve time anymore for anything else lol

    FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.

    Did I miss something? When did B2P become too expensive?

    Been years for me, too. Think my last sub was Planetside1 or maybe EQ1.

    Luckily, i don't need you to like me to enjoy video games. -nariusseldon.
    In F2P I think it's more a case of the game's trying to play the player's. -laserit

    GW2 was the last bottle of snake-oil I purchased.

    This is the only Beta Ive participated in, in recent memory where I couldnt wait to get back in game.  but I love shooters.

    i enjoy some shooters but gameplay needs to be varied(ie interesting weapons like borderlands) for it to grab me or have a great story.. nothing in defiance wanted me to keep playing unfortunately which sucks because I like trion and was hoping for a mmorpg shooter I could enjoy as I don't really like mmofps games like planetside

    He made a personal decision about value. It's not too expensive for me to pay $50 for a sock. I can afford it. It's just not worth the money to me.

     

    And then there is the whole generalization about B2P game prices. Not all B2P games cost the same and the value you get from them is personal. This makes your question sound uninformed and overly simple.

    I am not sure but about the same time as the 6 hr or so changed my GS purchase of Defiance to PS store that way Its on the HD.

    To me I enjoy gaming I dont play to be uber I play to have fun. If a game is not fun to me guess what I move on and play something else till I find one that is. When I find that great game and not sure if in my life time there will be one I hope it has everything I want in an mmo.

    Hmm... about 7 months give or take. It was GW2. 

    "For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

    Well if you count subscriptions then its been about that long for me.  As for actually playing I am now about 2 weeks without logging in to any MMO's.  GW2 is to boring for me now and I am to enthused about Neverwinter.

     

    Been playing alot of Skyrim since the end of Neverwinter BWE3, the rest of my time has been focues on Forum PvP over at http://forums.bethsoft.com/forum/190-elder-scrolls-online-general-discussion/

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    EQ1 had me hooked so much I tried to find that LOVE for a decade after. Now I just play WOT and have little hope for that kind of fix after so many years of waiting. Maybe it was the death penalties that kept me excited and the named mobs you hunted even alone that could drop big money loot or running thru a low level zone with a high level dragon flying aoround that couold smoke you in one hit, or entering a zone seeing 20 people running OUT and reading "Train to zone" while a dozen mobs heading straight to you. Finding hidden treasure chests was nice also. Kiting mobs, sneaking invis thru high level cities, so much more. Just give us EQ1 with Age of Conan graphics and I can promise you a 10 year MMO. Until then I will keep playing shooter games like world of tanks jhoining clans just to soon quit them so I know the people I kill......more fun some how....
