    Why were they better?

    They weren't.
    Oh, they definitely were.  The MMOs now are a joke compared to the ones around when World of Warcraft was new.  They were more challenging and therefore more interesting.  And they attracted more competent players.  Nowadays you can suck ass and still excel in whatever MMO you're playing.  The entire genre has become one large, bad joke.
    They were more tedious and time consuming, not better, not more interesting. 
    That is a matter of opinion, of course, but I thought they were a hell of a lot more fun back then.  Now they're a massively boring leveling tread mill to get to the "good part".  Before, the entire game was the good part, and it was an awesome experience if you had good people to play with. 

    Now that the MMOs are complete shit, where you basically press the I WIN button over and over again until max level, I'm very thankful to have had the opportunity to play them when they were still fun; when they required half a brain to play and when good gear meant something because it wasn't easy to get.
  • Any other MMOs like Path of Exile?

    Sephiroso said:
    As others have said, Path of Exile is not an mmorpg. While this isn't ironclad proof, because some devs misclassify their game to get more hits, but this is what GGG classifies their own game as(in this case its 100% correct)

    "Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast." Taken from the front page of the PoE website.

    So the term, again, that you were looking for is ARPG. And a simple google search would have given you your answer OP.
    Yeah, but he wasn't looking for answers.  He was looking for an argument.

    Damn .... looks pretty good.
  • Is Destiny 2 an MMO:Poll

    There's no real debate here.  There are two sides to this; the people who recognize what a MMO is and the people who don't.  The people who don't may classify Destiny 2 as a MMO and they may also decide that Chicken is Sea Food, but either way they're fucking wrong.
  • Why Derek Smart is right about Star Citizen - His facts and why SC is likely to fail

    Erillion said:
    Yep.  I remember him posting it on this forum almost two years ago.

    Derek Smart is completely full of shit.  With every crowdsourced project, there's always the possibility it will fail, but I wouldn't trust Derek Smart to predict what time the sun will rise tomorrow.  Setting aside for the moment that the man has no integrity whatsoever, he also doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about the majority of the time.  Also, I find it extremely amusing when people say "see, Derek Smart was right!"  Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.  Are you really going to give this douche credit because he ends up being right about one thing he said when he was wrong about twenty other things?  Come on!  That dude is biggest tool on the interwebs.
