I've tried every MMO pretty much, well all the "good" high quality ones. And to get it over with, its because MMOs aren't a good genre for me and it took me a long time to realize that. I like singleplayer/multiplayer games, or games like Elite Dangerous which is sorta an MMO (is it an MMO?) but can be 100% played as a singleplayer game with never interacting with anyone.
I don't like to be forced to group, I hate talking to people on voice chat, in real life I HATE talking on the phone and will go out of my way to avoid it (even hide in a box to not be found until the phone conversation is over, that is how much I hate talking to people). I hate people, and would very easily live on a mountain as a hermit and be perfectly happy surrounded by nature and quietness. That means MMOs are NOT for me, because MMOs are a social experience and I hate being social.
I will however play multiplayer games with my VERY small group of best friends I know in real life (I don't have many friends, but I keep a few very close tight friends), will even play games with people roaming around (like Elite Dangerous) and that is okay. I just don't want to be forced to socialize to get better at a game. Like WoW I hit 110, and to get the best items, gotta group for it or to see the storyline gotta be forced to group to do dungeons.
Does that make MMOs bad? Nope. But it took me a long time to finally say that MMOs are not for me. I hate being in a city in real life which is where I am now, and I hate being surrounded by people and noise and I hate kids even more lol. And I think a lot of solo focused MMO players might be slightly similar, and there are SO many better games for that experience.
Since quitting WoW a week ago. I've played so many games and have had so much more fun. Racing games (Dirt Rally), RPGs (Path of Exiles, Diablo 3, Skyrim), strategy games (starcraft 2, civilization 5)...and lots of games. My gaming experience is so much better, and I feel far less stress and anxiety from being forced to socialize in WoW to progress the story.
As for point of the thread? Well its to show that maybe many other solo focused players don't belong in an MMO. MMOs are supposed to be about socialization and grouping to progress. That is the very exact opposite of soloing in an MMO. Skyrim itself (with mods) is far more advanced than any MMO, same with many other singleplayer/multiplayer games. MMOs excel at socialization, and that should be their focus...not focus on solo players.
Anyway, probably pointless thread...but any thread someone makes is pretty pointless in the end :P
