I want this blog to be more of a rant, than anything, so be prepared for some hardcore ranting going on here. Remember a time, when gaming used to be about the fun, or in another way to put it... Remember when music had some passion in it, and not justin bieber? Honestly, it's becoming sickening. I love playing games, so does my woman, it's just like our bonding thing. It's how we release stress. I go to work, i have to deal with crap all day, what do i want to do? Game. When i play an mmorpg, i feel like it's a second job, i grind, and grind, i do the same exact crap, i do in my job every day. When did my mmo, become my second job? Yes, i get that people invest a lot of time into mmorpgs, and so do I, but i want to be fun more than stressful. As a matter of fact, i don't want it to be stressful at all. People can't seem to figure out the right formula for anything. I have more fun playing old Final Fantasy titles, than playing the current mmorpg's released. "Now now DaKurlzz, be nice, it's only fair". How is it fair? I watch this website a lot, i mean... I Blog on this website a ton, and i see a lot of... "This game will flop". "Did this game disappoint anyone else?". There is a line between discussing, and flaming. I wish people would get that through their skulls, and just figure that out. I hate flaming games. If you have noticed, i rant a lot, but i never release game names, that is just not me. I will discuss why i don't like a certain game, but i will never truly flame a game. It may be the worst game every spawned into the mmorpg world, but that is no reason to hate it. A mmorpg took the life of one of my best friends, i still don't hate it. There is no real reason to hate an mmorpg, we just think there is. We may truly dislike the game, but i truly believe we don't hit the point where we hate it completely. I don't think i have ever really truly hated a game, i may have really really disliked it, but not hated it. I think that is something we need to learn as a whole. We shouldn't hate a game. People have put hard work into it, and we may not like it, we may not like how it looks, how it plays, but that doesn't give us the right to go on the forums, and be like "OMGWTFFAILGAME". When i see titles or posts that include hatred, i automatically do not believe a word that person has to say. You haven't truly explored the game, you haven't tried hard enough. Some mmorpgs i have seen, follow a story line, follow that... Maybe find something cool in that. Most games have more to offer than just questing, pvp, and grind. You just have to work for it. I wish i would have realized that a long time, and maybe i wouldn't be ranting so much now. I just didn't take the time... I didn't learn the patience it took to dive deep into games, and find what they are really about. I took a first glace, got to level 10, and made my decision there. The worst mistakes i have ever made in my life were giving a false judgement on a game.
I'm not saying it is easy to dive into games, by no means it is. It's hard. It takes practice, it takes effort, and most importantly it takes time. Time is a problem with some people, i've learned to just accept that as a problem, and try to make it easy to deal with. Give a game the time it takes, set your goals, and try to find something in that game that will make you like it. Not just give up within the first 30 minutes, and make a flame post that says "Unistalled within 30 minutes, stay away". I mean c'mon. Thirty minutes? Really? I don't think it could be that bad, maybe it's bad, but it can't be that bad. It's just a waste of your time to write that, and flame a game, you never gave a chance. Do some research before you download, so you know what your getting into. Most games are becoming free, or have a trial version of the game. Which is the beauty of it all. If someone writes a post saying... "Got the trial, went the whole time... Here's my opinions". Hell yeah i will defiantly read that. Because someone gave some effort, and had some patience, and dived deep into the game. That is what i am looking for... People can't seem to understand that concept, and just give up so quickly. It just makes me so angry. Game's deserve some sort of chance. I'm getting a headache from writing this, honestly. Haha. I think i will end my rant here, and try to calm myself down, and medicate this headache. Ranting is fun, but it's a head killer. You know, eventually i write about the good things about mmorpgs, but i really have more to write about when i rant, because i guess it's easier too, if you really think about it. Just think about this next time you want to try a game. Give it a damn chance, you won't get anywhere, if you don't... Just remember that next time you all try something new out. Take it from me, i wish i would have done that sooner than later.
