OP  12/13/12 10:29:51 PM#1

The day that I knew would finally come has come and left me a bit dazed. The day that I finally have become burnt out on MMOs in general is now here. I tried to go back to TSW since it was "free"  now and I just sat there at the starting area asking myself, "What the hell are you doing here?". I logged off and don't plan on going back any time soon. I can finally say enough is enough and that I'm done with MMOs at least till some thing else comes out that can draw me back in but I don't see that happening any time soon.

 

I've been playing MMOs since I was 11 years old and now that I'm in my mid 20s I look back and realize truly just how long I've been on the scene and just how many games I have played. I've played almost every MMO under the sun and I just can't stand it any more.  My first true love was Ultima Online, then I moved on to EverQuest and fell in love with that one too then later WoW came along and I hopped on that wagon till Cata, and of course playing different ones in between all that time. Even with all that I could never find a game I felt truly comfortable in enough to settle and take root.  SWTOR was a big let down to me. GW2 wasn't for me and TSW just isn't appealing anymore. MMOs just ain't what they use to be eh?

 

Anyway, with that said, any one else burnt out like me?

Have any hope for the future of MMOs?

Any certain game you following that you think would rekindle that MMO love you once had? :P

I'm in the same boat... I started with UO back in '97 - LOVED it.  I have desperately been trying to find a successor for that game.  SW:G was it for me for a while but that died for me after they changed it all around.   Played WoW and multitudes of others but am still searching.  Sometimes I think that I've just outgrown MMO's...but I don't want to give up just yet :(

Been playing since EQ1, I certainly go through phases of burnout but I always find something to get into at least for a while. I still hope a game will come that really hooks me in for an extended period but it's not happening at the moment. play GW2 here and there but haven't had much time to put into it due to RL so I can't even give it a real yay or nay in my own opinion yet. Although I don't find myself chomping at the bit to log in. I guess I'll just see what comes.

I'm trying to hold on until Repopulation or Archeage.  Dabbling in other things in the meantime, like Far Cry 3, Skyrim and Torchlight 2.  My last mmo was GW2.  It was fun till max level. 

 

I'd really love to jump back into Precu SWG.  A lot of the old games are still around for people that loved them.  I wish a legitimate version of my game was still around, or at the very least a single player version.  A single player version would probably feel pretty lonely though.

 

Lately it feels like my mind drifts a bit in games, like my attention is elsewhere.  I find myself thinking more about design decisions and why a developer did this or that instead of becoming immersed in the game.

Yeah, I've been looking over Archage and it seems a little appealing but I've been burned so many times that I just see most of them as a wolf in sheeps clothing.  I'll still keep watching though just incase.

Nicely said.  I have that happen as well.  Instead of seeing the world, all I see is game mechanics and artwork.

 

I was working on an idea for an FPS-RPG hybrid and went back and played Unreal Classic that I hadn't played in ages.  It was great, really immersive.  GF and I played through the full game then the expansion.  I don't know what to make of it, but maybe the change of scenery or getting away from tab-target combat and quest hopping was the cause.  I can honestly say I had fun, which I can seldom say anymore with MMORPGs.

What is a 2nd person shooter?

Maybe we have a untapped market here?

Just think for a moment that if a 3rd person shooter sells 9 million copies then maybe a 2nd person shooter will sell 12-13 million copies or even more?

ive been doing that with alot of MMo's lately. i havnt bought a ton wich i normally would by. Tera Rift age of conan. tried them all. looks like fun, is fun tbh. but that only lasts while leveling. when you get at that cap it all turns into the same rubbish.

i tought GW2 would be the holy grail with the dynamic events and being buy to play ive bought that one. now im bored out of my mind. if i wanted to do dungeons all day i could have sticked with WoW. Yes there is WvW but im apearantly on a terible server we dominated in the first month then it went downhill, and nobody seem intrested in going anymore.

You logged off because TSW is a horrible game in execution. The idea behind TSW is great, but the combat is subpar, which is 90% of MMO's. 

After playing other games like TERA, GW2, PS2... the combat in TSW is just garbage. The only thing the game really has going for it is the investigation quests.

No offense op, but ...we've read this op just a few times before.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Yeah, well, that is exactly the same argument that was used to promote the previous release. "Next generation". Next generation turned out to mean grinding afk swimming against a wall, macroing everything to death and gank-fest.

Every new game coming out happens to be "new generation"; to the point that the expression no longer means crap.

Exactly. They might claim its new and ground breaking yet it's just a new verison of the same boring shit year after year.

2nd person shooter is more like the one getting head shot by the 1st person in the shooter game....!lol

Below is where we can disscuss and come up with new ideas for Sandparks!

Who did wrong? The advertiser hired to sell the game or the consumer who put faith in advertising?

A game's place on the timeline helps too. Each subsequent release of games is literally, the next generation. It is up to consumers to decide wether the next generation of games are good or not. 

Generation is a term denoting time, not quality. As DancingQueen eluded to; if you hear the term 'next generation' and think that means 'better' - you are a tool of marketers instead of knowledgable of word definitions.
