OP  1/28/13 2:20:38 AM#1

My days of playing MMOs have been slowly coming to an end. Nothing new interests me. And now I think I'm just going to stop buying new ones for good.

For a few months now, I've been playing older MMOs that I have already own. Been bouncing around the same 5 games this past year and it's been ok so far.

Has anyone else been cycling through old MMOs that they own?

Do you have any plans to spend $60 on a new one anytime soon or ever again?

 

Update : Clarification, it's not a money issue, it's a not worth my money issue. If someone can release a game that keeps my interest for at least 6+months, I'll be the first to say "Shut up and take my money!"

Do not pre-order

Stick with your friends in a guild, in a MMO.

Play alternative online games that you like.

Keep an eye out for anything that might bereak the easymode MMO mould rut the industry is in.

That has been working fine for me for years now.

I've been playing like this in the last 3-4 years :)

With countless other games I've tried or played for a few months, there are 3 games (now 4 with TSW) that I keep playing even during those detours. And yes, I'm cycling through them, so while I log into all of them in every couple of days, there's always one which I'm playing "massively" in a given timeframe (usually involving some anniversary or festival, or just levelling up a new alt).

 

Edit: for your question "Do you have any plans to spend $60 on a new one anytime soon or ever again?" - I don't think so. (and not because I'm cheapskate, and nope, TSW isn't my 4th because it went b2p :) ). Simply those games I'm looking forward in the "soon" future wil be f2p's...

I think Scot has it right, stick with your friends and guildmates.

After all, MMO games are so appealing largely because of the social interaction. Unfortunately, most players you run into randomly aren't interested in chit-chatting, they're too busy racing through the content. Hey, I'm not knocking it, especially considering many of them are alts, but I'm not in a terrible hurry when I play these games.

Am I going to drop $60 bucks on an MMO in 2013?

  • The Secret World: Maybe. I just found out that I have a good friend playing this game.  I'm really considering it, and the fact that it went B2P is just an added enticement.
  • Elder Scrolls Online: There is NO way that I can NOT spend whatever money needs to be spent to try this game. It's going to happen.
  • Pathfinder Online: I will be spending money on this game.  No question about that.
  • EverQuest Next: Maybe, I could be swayed either way on this depending on how it turns out and whether or not I am already engrossed in another game.
  • TITAN: Depending on what this turns out to be, I probably can't avoid at least trying it.

I haven't found a permanent MMO home since I quit DAOC almost 2 years ago. I've been doing the same "buy the latest thing, play for 2 months, quit" dance as many other players. There are a few MMOs on the horizon that might interest me enough to pay $60 if they are released under a B2P model. There's nothing coming out in the next few years that inspires me to pay $60 + a monthly sub -- at least not based on what I know about any of them at this point.

My game cycling is slower.  I've gotten to packing up games and storing them on a fileserver for later.

 

What's sad is that sometimes I'll unpack a game, spend an hour patching it, play it for maybe a half hour, then pack it up again.  Honestly it doesn't seem worth it.

 

I find that lately I spend more time playing Morrowind and Classic Unreal than anything else.  Those two don't get uninstalled on my PC or laptops.

 

Pay $60 for a new game?  Pfft.  I can't think of anything other than Repopulation and maybe Archeage that I've even considered playing.

  I abandoned the genre all together, started playing single player  games  again . I tried some of the F2P MMOs but nothing realy grabbed me. The next game I buy is not an MMO..Rome 2:total war, other than that I don't see anything worh my time or my money in any genre, least of all the MMO genre.

Seeing as WoW went in a diffeent direction than i liked i cannot go back to that. GW2 turned out to not have much of an end game feeling qand the story really ended up lacking to me. There just isn't a lot for me to try that I used to play so I stick to LoL when I get real bored.

Me too, I found the bast mmos are older ones. GW2 was the icing on the cake, there all crap with no community.  Now I'm playing Vanilla WoW and LOTRO.  I like them both :)

No plans to spend any money. Most MMOs are F2P anyway. There is no point in spending money. And i don't think i cycle through MMOs.

I play them from time to time, and go back when i feel like it. Most MMOs have so much content that i am no where close to exhausting, unless you play day and night on only one game (which i don't).

Yeah, maybe that's my problem. I haven't found a new home. Can't say I haven't tried though. I'm sure you haven't either.

Your "buy the latest thing, play for 2 months, quit" quote is pretty much spot on with how I feel right now. It's not that I don't have the $60, but doing this process is really getting dumb. I feel like I'm throwing away money because of this.

I find that, the old the MMOs are, the better. The only setbacks are populations and graphics. Graphics are not really too important for me, but it is for some people and that alone, impacts population.

Stop soloing so much.

Really. People are much more interesting than the games are.

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.

I agree. That's part of the reason why I like playing older games. Everyone needs a group.

I also find grinding mobs with a group is much easier than questing with one or two others and making sure everyone has x number of rats killed completed, etc. It's more fun to run around the zone with a gang and mowing down mobs and goofing off. To me, that is.

I agree. That's part of the reason why I like playing older games. Everyone needs a group.

I also find grinding mobs with a group is much easier than question with one or two others and making sure everyone has x number of rats killed completed, etc. It's more fun to run around the zone with a gang and mowing down mobs and goofing off. To me, that is.

I agree and don't agree. I was more social in Lineage 2 and mostly played that solo.

Having said that, I had way more fun in groups, as you say, pulling mobs, having those "oh sh*t" moments and just enjoying what happens while leveling and between leveling than gathering quests, running to the dot on the map, killing 5 things, running back and rinse and repeat.

One of the reasons why, in LOTRO, I would get two quests, go to the area with the orcs and just make an evening out of it after I killed 10 of them.

For me I'm just dabbling in mmo's. My guild in Tera died, my original guild in LOTRO died, the few friends I have made while in these games sort of dabble with me as well.

But nothing really of substance. Mostly playing single player games now.

Not really. I have "met" many more new games that are more fun than new people i met.

Oo nice thread. I agree with every post! (even the last one, above, sadly considering the current state of FTP games are likely full of IDBs.)

Luckily, i don't need you to like me to enjoy video games. -nariusseldon.
In F2P I think it's more a case of the game's trying to play the player's. -laserit

While this is true. Having everybody just get bored of the same game, at about the same time says a lot about the game.

 

PS. Rome2 looks awesome!

This is what I have done as well, and this is also the future of my gaming.
