I suppose you thought that i would be advertising for the newest, latest and greatest thing. Nope.
The sole reason I posted this was to inspire some of you gamers/geeks/family people out there that just cant seem to get enough out of every MMO they play.
It is not a company's responsibility to make the gaming community happy; just as it is not the responsibility of the basketball court, goal and bleachers to make a basketball player happy.
If we as a community cannot find a common ground with one another and learn to enjoy any environment, together as gamers/people, we will never be happy no matter what game we play.
As a few examples:
The very next time you get a chance to beta something, try to provide input - not see the game before other people so you have an advantage over people you truly don't need an advantage over but instead.. need their companionship to make a quality gaming experience that starts with virtual friendships rather than - competition.
Grouping is a form of bonding or should be. It is not taking time out of what you want to be doing to advance. It is your opportunity to take advantage of what online gaming has to offer uniquely. Don't grind your life away, help others and help yourself by not getting cause up in what you can get - but what you can give.
It is very positive to request things of game companies, just don't expect it because they owe you nothing. You chose to buy or not buy what they are selling.
You are not better than the person across the world from you who is playing the same game as you. No matter ho hard you grind or the people you join with or ignore equally , there is only one reason you are online instead of on a console game - community.
You make the world you live in, take responsibility for it and make it your own. Help others and reap the rewards.
The underlying cause of so many discontent people in the MMO genre is due soley to the fact they they themselves have such a hard time working with one another to make a strong community in whatever game they choose. You can play the worst game out there with good friends and still have a good time - this should tell us all something.
So the next time you see the "newb" in chat that doesn't know how to do things, or the solo adventurer in your guild asking for soemone to group wth because he is bored; take some time out and make a friend, help a fellow gamer and enjoy the pleasant surprise that is a good gaming experience and community that you built without even knowing it.
I had more to say but I don't want this to take long since most people don't have the attention span "like myself". Good gaming people. Here's to new friends from all over the world.
