30 Something Gamers....Hello? Am I alone here?

I have been a gamer for a long time. Probably longer than some of you have lived. But just because I am concidered "Old" by a large group doesn't mean I am alone or few in numbers. This blog is a call to those "Old" gamers out there!

Nap time for the so called MMO"RPG"

As of lately I have been playing WoW more than any other MMO. I can't say that WoW fulfills my need or desires in a game, but it functions better than most and is more enjoyable to play. Also my nephews have been playing for a while now (do to an uncle introducing them to it) and it has brought some new life into a dieing world. To see and hear their excitement as their toon lvls and gets new talents has been fun. BUT ... it has only brought me so far! There is just that lack of real rpg play in most MMOs that leaves one like myself with a huge empty spot. I did enjoy playing LOTRO, but the hitching and graphic issues in the game made for a frustrating journey. Even after getting a newer system it didn't resolve the graphic issues with the game. LOTRO was probably the closest in the MMO arena that gave a rpg'er the fix they were looking for. I won't leave out Vanguard either, but both are plagued with graphic and game play issues to this day.

So for a time it is looking like the world of MMOs will be taking a nap in my land. I may pop in on WoW and PvP a bit or check on it after the expansion comes out. I may even be tempted with LOTRO and it's expansion, but until someone puts out a game that functions like WoW and gives a person a good and meaningful crafting / rpg experience like LOTRO and Vanguard offered, none of them will be seeing much of my real world money flowing their way.

Back to the land of Neverwinter for me. I may even toy around with a few mods of my own and get back into a real rpg experience again. Oh how I have missed the meaningful storyline and the characters that drew you in and made you feel a part of a greater purpose; an "ever changing world".
