    Do some book shopping.

    It's odd; you can't really recommend "remember that stuff you did before gaming?", because you can't be sure that applies any more.

    But I had to remind my son, several times a year, that a world still existed away from the keyboard.

    Seems to have worked, he's at least active (personal trainer) and outdoorsy now. His life in the sunshine is probably more balanced than mine, actually :/

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    You would prefer he be impossible to entertain?

    What good would that do anyone, particularly himself?

    EvE Online.

    Different from most of the games you listed but still offers many things to do. While the game is PvP centric, you don't have to PvP by any means. Just have to be aware of your surroundings. You can mine, manufacture, explore, mission run, buy/sell on the market. The game allows and even encourages scamming of other players but its an unfriendly universe. Be aware and you are usually fine. There are varying levels of security (high, low, null) that allow you to get used to the game in relative safety.

    You can be killed anywhere in space but as I have already said, simple awareness will take you a long way. The training is time based. You put a skill in a queue and it trains in real time; logged in or not. This allow you to train even if you can't log in. Also means that you can be doing other things while waiting for new skills to train.

    In short: A harsh world but very satisfying if you can get into it.

    ^this is basically what i am doing. its kinda fun to check out odd or offbeat mmos and check their playstyle and mechanics out. its also nice just to explore the different worlds people have made.

     

    and perhaps, along the way, you and i both  might find something to keep us interested for a few months.

    Mechwarrior online is open beta and is pretty cool, if you can manage to stay interested and get enough creds to buy a decent Mech.  They are running a cadet bonus for your first 25 games atm so you can accumulate creds and xp like a premium member for a bit.  The trial mechs right now are weak, they change weekly though and the community is pushing for better builds for the trial mechs so people will stay interested.  Not an MMO but a decent time sink for me atm.

    Playing : DayZ

    Played : EVE, GW, SB, DF, AoC, WoW, WaR, L1, L2, Rift, AA, WS

    Loved: DAoC, EVE, SB, old WoW, L2, GW2, EQ1-2

    Vanguard

    “It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

    --John Ruskin

    It's been a long time since I've replied to anyone, and I just want to thank you all for your wonderful replies. I have taken a lot of advice from all of you, and have recently been playing Steam games, and retried the games that I've played before. I couldn't get Vanguard on my computer, because it's full. After I finish downloading Tera (playing it with a friend, I got him a gaming computer for his birthday) I will go through my computer and delete some stuff so I can try it out. Done a little research, and it looks great. 

     

    But I am up for any type of gaming. I have seen that there are a few gamers out there that are having the same problem I am. So if you want to message me here, or add me on steam (anyone can, always wanting to co-op with people) that would be awesome.

    Have a great day everyone!

    In the valley of death I cast a shadow to block out the sun. I am a monster accepting what i?ve become. My faith was drowned in a sea of doubts. Now the thorn littered road its my only way out so I push on. Iron willed. Demonized. Tongue forged in fire. Hate in my eyes. Celestial supremacy replaced with gloom. Inhale aggression and exhale doom
