In a nut shell, this is my test to gage a hearty healthy mmorpg,
If I could manage to stay level ten or below for a week. Making friends along the way, testing and getting to know my abilities inside and out. A good solid game where others are doing the same...... Even using 3rd party web sites to enhance the 1-10 experience, to make sure I miss nothing about my class. I want this 1-10 level area to be dangerous, where I had to be careful of my actions. Maybe, just maybe finding the closes city to see what it has to offer.... then make more friends there.
Another test or gage a healthy mmorpg FOR ME would be,
If I were a writer, I could develop a short story of my adventures, using only 1-10... My own un-scripted story. Something where I can secretly daydream about what I'll do when I get home..... Games like ESO or FF14, your story would be like everyone else, and almost impossible to stay below level 10.
I was about to list true mmorpgs, but decided to say first and second generation games only fill this qualification.
People are so critical of hitting max level they don't even care or even realize, mmoprgs are liner and extremely fast with 30 days of content.
I'm sure I'm alone in my beliefs.... I don't care, I have my convictions.
Go on..... let me have it, put me in my place..... and most of all check my spelling.
