Are just pathetic. I simply can't play them for more than a hour. Rift reminded me(although a Great game, no doubt, it still is an MMO) what it is that I hate so much about MMOs.
-Pathetic excuse for a story told from almost inconsequential perspective. What is keeping me here? The things to do at max level? That's laughable! That's like restricting Skyrim's Main story to level 30+ characters. Lol what? I mean the story in Rift, in WoW and in many other MMOs would have been at least 150% better if they didn't tell it through god damn quests! While we are at it...
-Quest hubs and quests overall. I am sick of quest hubs. I just want to go around and stumble upon the quest. Also, the fact that the most quests are "Kill 10 of X" doesn't exactly help. MMO designers sure do need to work on their quest variety. Wait no. Just make them fun and believable, instead of "We will make a potion. I will prepare the ingredients and you go kill 8 of X to bring me the ingredients that I am missing". What's wrong with all the bloodshed???
-Respawning mobs. When the respawn time is too short, I don't feel any impact on the world and that in turn just kills the game for me. Can't you have fewer mobs that are more deadly in turn? And they respawn every...5 minutes let's say? Or even better, use large instances. I never quite figured what is so wrong with instances and phases.
-All the fun at the endgame. This one is so lame that it doesn't deserve a paragraph lol. Can't the whole game be, you know, fun instead of a major time sink(and yes, I do realise that's the whole purpose of games-but they need to be FUN timesinks instead of boring, boring MMO timesinks)? Meh...
I think that I listed enough points. You get what I am talking about.
I swear it, the only MMO-like game that I can play is TSW. But then again, it should've been a singleplayer game. Rift's awesome and I REALLY love some souls, though it kinda does bore you fast with all the quest chains and hub hopping and yeah. Purifier made me realise the sheer width of Warhammer(who says that you can't use Aqshy to Heal and burn away impurities?). Any advice with that would be welcome.
So, what am I to do? Play singleplayers/other genres? Do sth else? And when we're at it, am I really the only one that feels massively disappointment by MMOs?
