I downloaded both Albion Online and Legends of Aria (Two new.. but retro feeling sandbox MMO's) I am having fun, but honestly am frustrated because nobody is holding my hand so I literally have no idea what to do.. which is GREAT, but at the same time frustrating because I have no direction at all, and sometimes that's worse than being held every step of the way.
I have TOO many choices?
I also started playing EQ Project 1999 and even though it's less of a sandbox, it's the same there.. I'm just running around aimlessly with no idea what the heck I'm doing. It's awesome, but I will not last long if I don't find some sort of "path for myself" even if there isn't one provided BY the game..
anyone else played so many themeparks, they forgot how to play in a sandbox or found it super overwhelming going back to that sort of play?
FFXIV (which I'm also playing) seems ez-mode in comparison.
FFXIV on Behemoth, FFXI on Eden, and Gloria Victis on NA.
