MMO player Personalities have a wide range in my experience on how social players are. People are people and no one can change that. No one should be forced to do anything they don't like to do. However, we are talking about Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games.
- Traditionally, players were expected to live as a community. MMO's were developed to be played for years on end. The given content was expected to be simple, and the WORLD WAS DESIGNED TO BE GIVENT TO THE PLAYERS TO DO WHAT EVER THEY SEE FIT.
- In the second generation, this was upgraded. The interacting content had more story and lore, coupled with more objectives and developers content where players can chose variable objectives scripted by developers. Everything was still optional, and I consider them as mmos because the world was given to the player to do as they please.
- The now generation mmos have changed again to something less player interactive and more developer scripted. Opening the doors for the less or not at all social player.
I promised myself I'll not go off on my usual rants that irritates others, but I will say this:
The first and second generation of mmo players are left behind with the now generation of mmos. Even the classics have changed to undesired by many, with FtP cash shops and extremely easy game play. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME GAMES AT ALL.
What generation of mmos are truly desired by players ?....Is it generation 1,2 or 3 ?......My opinion is we don't really know !....Developers made the changes. Their was never one big massive vote by the consumer.
Anyway, here is a little poll. What type of player are you. Be honest, remember you are what you are and no one can change that.
