I complain to much, but it is because I have so many reasons to, I spend a lot of time playing games, reviewing them, learning about them, etc. Whenever I do, I pick at the game and see what I like, and don't like. Many free to play games I look at it, I go through a lot of different things, but of course, what is the biggest part? Cash shop, and content. I really believe there is more to it than that, but you know... A lot of things come into play when I review a game, it could be a pay to play game, or a free to play game. Most of the time, I give the game about a week, or until I reach a certain level were I gather enough information to give a balanced review. I typically don't pay for anything in a cash shop game, when I am trying it out, I will only spend money if I know i'm going to love the game, or plan on playing the game a lot. An example, when I was addicted to Neverwinter, I actually spent a chunk of money on the game, because I liked the game a lot, more than most games I play, or have played.
Was it a mistake? Not really, because I enjoyed the game, but after the downfall of it all, I quit, and moved on, I still hope it will all balance out, and fix itself, and I hope they are just not milking the game, until it dies. I truly hope that they aren't. I want them to fix the game, and eventually I would love to come back to it. I was reading that the expansion is coming out, and I will revisit the game when it is released. I'm praying it will fix a lot of problems, balance issues, pvp issues, and dungeon issues. Time will only tell with that game. I hope cryptic will do the right thing, and so will PWE. I would literally unsub to World Of Warcraft if they made those major changes, just because I really loved that game. Of course, I will still complain about it, it could be this or that, but you know... Nothing is perfect, and I accept that. Because of it all, that's why I resubbed to WoW. Harsh harsh thing to do, but I couldn't enjoy the game entirely in it's current state of play.
Back to my original subject. There is no perfect mmorpg, there is no perfect game. I wish there was, but you know... Another major problem I have, is hype. HYPE. I hate it. I really hate hype, when there is very few information. I hate to call out a game, but I feel like I should talk about this, and this is my personal opinion. One game I was really looking forward to was Firefall. I really was, and when it hit open beta, I was really interested in the game play, I followed it for awhile, so I installed it, and see what it was like. I was really disappointed in the game. Yes, it's open beta, and it hasn't been "Officially" released, and they will fix a lot of issues and things like that, but my first impression made me doubt the game a lot. I hope they will do a lot more to the game, and improve it over time, and I will look at it again, and hopefully it will be more polished in time. Hype has ruined a lot of games for me. I get into the hype, I listen to all the information, I follow what people say, the game gets released, and I'm playing it saying to myself "What is this? This isn't what I was told it would be". When I game I am interested in is announced, I will wait awhile, probably closer to it's release date and look at all the information at hand.
I could go into more and more reasons why I complain about these things, but I don't want my blood boiling to much. I shouldn't complain as much as I do, but sometimes I can't help myself. If you could leave some comments on what you complain about, and why you complain about it. Join in, I would love to hear your thoughts about it. Cheers mates!
