i made some of my good friends from around globe by playing mmos. a usa soldier stationed in japan and to this day one of my best friends and i am in contact with him via face book. an australian couple who even invited me to their country but i did not go because the trip cost(well i am just ordinary gamer you know). well i had to quite that game because i am back in europe now and because of the time difference and life complications i cant play with those guys anymore sadly, i have decided to try new mmos and make friends.
but after trying those games i found out, more and more so called mmos are being solo friendly and offering a gameplay which requires minimum interaction with people in the guild and out side of it. it feels it is all about loot, loot and grind, grind for high end stuff and make more in game currency like gold as much as you can. if you can solo it way better(people are in the way) or join zerg and no need to be social just hit boss get the loot and leave.
the games i tried were gw2 and eso i felt these two games require minimum interaction with others. but i have high hope for wild star ( i am not promoting this game. this can turn out to be bad or it might be good, we have to wait and see) it seems it offers old school MULTI player game where guild matters and playing together is what end game is all about, i am just hoping wild star is going to be a real mmo, but i suggest not to rush and buy it wait to see whether the game is actually good or not.
