Have you ever changed your mind about a game you had judged harshly and then found yourself going back to and enjoying?
People often say it's innappropriate to review an mmorpg until you make it to "end game" and experience what it has to offer. But we all know that there are some games where we just wouldn't do that even if we were paid to.
Some games, I've found myself unable to get through the tutorial even after trying 4-5 times. I will be honest. It was EVE. I know that is a well respected game. I'm just not into it. I know my personal experience has nothing to do with whether EVE is a good game or not. It's just my experience. Other games, I had fun at first, and made it to the middle like level 30/50 or 40/80 and suddenly just hit a wall and didn't want to log in any more.
Other games, I've made it to the endgame and played for a while and eventually burned out. That's natural. It will happen to any game eventually, so that's not what I'm asking about here. Just then one's you've play for a bit and then just said, "Meh. Not for me. I'm out."
