I am a long time gamer and I have seen the birth and death of mmo games. I am calling today the end of the mmo as I see it.
between the hackers and spammers, there is not much left to enjoy about these games. game companies dont bother to put anti hack controls in their games, and it turns them into bot and hack garbage.
take ESO for example, I loved this game, I played the crap out of it, only to find some hacker group today who actually called themselves "advanced gamers." ~ seriously some noobs who need hacks to play a game think of themselves as advanced gamers?! lol
I dont think there is one game out there today or one that is in development that is not affected by hackers. How people even play with hacks and think that is fun is beyond me.
and then on top of this, there is the constant gold spam, as once again no company can ever figure out how to handle this. I always could think up some easy ways, but for some reason these million dollar game companies have zero clue.
personally I think this is pretty much the end of the mmo, that is for the people who actually play games without the need for hacks, I guess all the little hack nubs will probably still play until these servers dry up, but other then that, I think the majoprity of players wont be bothering with these games.
it would be nice if some companies actully got a clue how to program a game and put anti-hack code in it, but it seems like they dont have any clue about this either. So if you want a real game experience I dont think the mmo is going to do it for anyone anymore.
