I'll have a little secret going on that only you people can understand.
I have a very active life with a job, family and many other activities. My house is located in deep farm land that takes ten minuets to get to any highway or populated areas.
Long time ago when mmorpg's were REALLY MMORPG'S, I would have an alternate story going on inside my head. It was a fantasy world filled with excitement, intrigue yet the future was unknown. I would have a group for friends and belong to a guild of people who shared a common goal. I would have situations unknown to "real life people" where I wouldn't dare try to explain.
I always felt I developed two states of mind keeping them separated from each other. Every dry minuet in real life I would drift into fantasy and it would be at it's best when alone, such as driving the farm land to work in the dark, or before I fall asleep. Even in the middle of doing something complicated at work such as locking a terminal onto a satellite, setting up for communications, I would still catch myself drifting into fantasy..... This had to be kept a secret. But one I was good at. My daily goal was to take care of all business, responsibilities, and even fun activities so I could return to my mmorpg and continue my adventures.
Off Line Video Games can only fill half this void, and modern mmorpgs "none at all". It's almost like modern mmorpg's are like nothing !!!........ They fill no gap what's-so-ever !!!...... They're brainless, simple, easy, carrot-on-a-stick !!!
I guess I'll have to accept the "new group" that took over this site that are looking for simple hit-and-run-fun. But I'm searching for something more.... Call me crazy (I don't care), but I want more !!!!
