Hopefully the title of the thread got you here, and now you are mad as hell and ready to flame away. Well, I want to start off by saying that I have become an MMO cynic. Having played through multiple MMO's since leaving SWG I find that nothing satisfies me anymore. I get bored easily with games, get turned off by little problems, and overall can't seem to find a title that truely makes me WANT to play the game. Now when I hear of new MMO titles coming out I start tearing them apart before I even play them. It's like I'm trying to find a reason to not like the game before I even get going.
But here is the thing for me, and I imagine a good many other folks. We have become the generation of MMO players who over analyze, over think, and over criticize every aspect of the game. We are passionate gamers, we are a group who looks at a game and says, "I bet this game would be more fun if the developers did x, y, or z." This is a good thing, because it promotes creativity and imagination in a generation that is severely lacking in both. However, it is our downfall because we are never satisfied with just enjoying the games.
To anyone who feels like I do I want to encourage you with the same thing I am trying to encourage myself with. It's Star Wars, and that alone may just be good enough for me. I want the game to be so many things, but it is the one thing I really want already, a chance to romp again in the SW universe. Admittedly I hate the current state of SWG, but if I were honest I would still play that unholy POS game if there were enough people to enjoy it with......simply because it's Star Wars. lol
