I was talking to a friend of mine in Eudemons Online today who mentioned a problem a lot of people have with games like EO. That there is no end. There is no way to beat EO. Is that all games are about, the end? That is not how it works in life.
The end is not important in life, the journey is. It is the same in EO. To use a popular saying: It's not about whether you'll lose but how you play the game. The same is true in EO. Playing the game and enjoying the journey. This game is about improving your character, making friends, and accomplishing little things every day. Just like life and just like life you will get out of EO just what you put into it.
I know what I enjoy most in this game is not making better pets, getting more stuff, or leveling. It is the interactions, talking with old friends and making new. This is what keeps people playing this game. The people they talk with and play with. They can abandon their characters and pets any day, but not their friends. They also keep the game exciting because you never know when you might make a new friend or what you and your old friends will talk about and do.
This is why this game does not need or require an end. It is a journey and friends are the most important part of it. Is there an end to friendships? Yes, but there shouldn't be so why do people think EO needs an end when it is a game about friends and the journey.
