Sometimes, I just want relax with a game I know like the back of hand.
I see lots of posts here demanding "innovation" or "something new/different" and I agree. But sometimes, Freecell or Iron Dragon hits the spot. I've heard WoW is "the comfort zone" for many MMO players and why it has such a large core base of players.
Do you have "comfort games" that you go to just whenever? If so, what are some of them?
For me, games that are comfortable are:
Freecell and Iron Dragon (as mentioned previously)
Master of Magic
Fallout 3 and New Vegas
Doom and Quake
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.
