Is it just me or has there been a consistent decline in the community feel in MMOs since about 10 years ago?
Every time I log into pretty much any MMO I can see less and less community work and more and more individual people doing their own thing. Basically people soloing the game, along with a thousand other people who are also soloing the game in the same server.
I am not really sure what benefit you get from an MMO without group play, except of course I guess if it was a single player game you couldn't brag to others about your latest piece of epeen gear.
I remember the days when people would group just for the fun of doing things together. These days unless there is a specific incentive to do so most people keep to themselves.
What do you think has brought this about? A change in game culture? A change in culture as a whole where we have become more and more antisocial as a society? Or something else?
