I've been playing video games since I was in diapers lol. and I had so much fun up until 2010.
I agree that mmo's just aren't the same anymore . Guild wars 2 and the secret world was my last hope. Yes I still look for a mmo that can be fun and rewarding and be innovative , but I think the reality for me is that mmo's have literally run it's course for me .
I still think the best mmo's that ever existed was daoc , eq , swg and a few others.
those games had amazing innovation and other great things. But in the last 8-9 years in my experience , the communities aren't the same anymore , every game now is just a grindfest to me and it just doesn't hold my attention;
I also think what ruined the mmo's experience for me , was when wow basically streamlined mmo's. before wow came out mmo's was a rare and unique and niche . Since wow came out , the mmo market has become more of a business thing , where it has become more about money than about making good quality games .
But for what it's worth I still enjoy being with the older gamers
I'm already looking at starting new hobbies. In the beginning for the new year my girlfriend and I are going to a conservatory for private lessons. She's taking keyboard lessons and I'm goign with classical guitar lessons. I think it will be fun for both of us and this hobby will challenge us.
I think the only thing I will be doing , that is relative to gaming is, just mention my wonderful experiences and memories .
