.. instead of what you think it should be?
Everyone has their likes and dislikes, we all know this. But how many people can go into a game with an open mind and attempt to play and enjoy a game for what it is? Meaning, if it is a PvP game then you participate in PvP battles, you don't complain how you hate PvP and the software company should remove it. If the game is about PvE then you do your dungeon crawls and raids and don't complain that you can't kill other players. If the game is group oriented then you join a group and do whatever and don't complain you want solo content. You get the point.
Of course we'll still find plenty of games we don't like even when we do give them a fair shake. But at least be willing to experiement a bit.
I have learned from experience that the preconceived notions of what is good and bad about a mmorpg can make you miss out on games you may potentially come to enjoy. Playing a game that does something really well can make you change your mind overnight. For instance the first few mmorpg's I played, I thought PvP was aweful. I saw no point in it and found it boring after a few fights. Then I played Eve and it made me do a complete 180 on the subject.
I find it extremely arrogant when players make posts on how a company should make radical changes to games because it would please them.
There are a lot of posts about how this genre is becoming stale and everything feels too similar. I agree with that. But then when something different does come along, I hear the same people complaining how it lacks features that the "stale model" contains. We have to make up our minds, do we want something new or not. Again, can we try a different game with an open mind without immediately comparing it to WoW and dismiss it because you can't play as an elf?
There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.
