man ive been out of mmo world for so long. been playing ps3.. tekken 6 online and demon souls. getting super sf4. look back at my mmos days.... why the heck i wasted so much time on it? on something so boring. i dont know. just reality check. see if someone is out of mmo world like me.

I hope you're enjoying your console time.  Most people grow out of those at puberty though.

 Actually, Surveys show that is far from the truth,PC elitists often have this misconception about console gaming.

My best friend got back from traveling the world for years, seeing the wonders of the world, having sex with countless exotic and willing women, and helping to support and teach the citizens of a few third world counties. He asked me if I was still playing MMOG's. It made me feel small. Small enough that I took a couple years off to do the same.

 

Someone that has been playing a PS3 asking if I am still stuck playing MMOG's doesn't seem to have the same effect. If anything I feel sorry for him.

At the end of the day, PC gamers and PS3 gamers are all doing the same thing.  They're sitting in a chair moving polygons around a computer screen.  The only difference is PC gamers have the delusion that what they're doing makes them in some way intelectually superior to the console crowd.

 Oh I don't know... the ability to play non-arcade-ish games that never reach console, being able to create hacks and other enhancements for your games and the realization that a keyboard is a much better controller than what you use (what else am I forgetting?) might have something to do with your suspicion that we are a tad more intellectual than your typical GTA hoodrat.  There's alway the exception but obviously the average pc crowd is going to be a step up from the average console gamer because of more than one factor.

And to the OP, nice troll thread... seriously.  I think you'd find though that a lot of people are like yourself: kind of hanging around here but not subscribed to any game atm.  Thing is if there was no such thing as a fun mmo you wouldn't have played it for so long.  You were under its spell because it was FUN.

 The mention of exclusives is rather silly when there are also many consoles games that are not available on the PC.

The keyboard is a much better controller than a console controller? Not at all.A keyboard is designed for production, not for gaming and it shows. A mouse and keyboard only work well with a few genres, while a console controller works well with pretty much every genre.

I also don't see how the average PC gamer is more intelligent than the average console gamer.

 uh...yeah, this.

I did the console thing when I was a kid, man.....kinda grew out of that.

This!  I'm too old to appreciate console games, they're something my children play. 

Never saw a single game that held a torch to games designed for the PC.

And since finding MMORPG's, I haven't really played a single player game since around 2001 for any length of time.

Can't understand why anyone would want to.

You cant understand why anyone would want to play a single player game? How about the higher level of immersion, the higher quality graphics, the more involving and fluid gameplay and the "quality over quantity" approach which I prefer a hell of a lot more. Sure not all single player games have this (some of them are dreadful!) but it seems to me that I have a much better range of quality products to chhose from in the single player department than I have in mmos. Besides a lot of mmos these days play like really bad single player games anyway.

Yesterday I completed the more recent Stalker game, Call of Pripyat. Its an fps roleplaying game. Very immersive indeed. Skulking through the very realistic looking wilderness with an assault rifle and a flashlight in the dead of night can be quite a buzz. I hear a horrid gurgling sound somewhere nearby and decide to take cover beside a crumbling wreck of an old jeep. I wait and see a group of mutated beasts crawl across the road and disappear from view into the bushes. Its tense. Its atmospheric. I've never experienced anything like that from an mmo.

In Dawn of War 2 the single player campaign is fantastic. There is so much detail in the battles that take place. The characters voice overs are also spot on. Everything from the great visuals, the interface design, the way that units take cover and fire on enemies, the entire warhammer 40k feel that the game evokes is awesome. The focus on quality that has gone into this game is top notch.

All of the Halflife games. A great story that unfolds that I can actually participate in without a single shitty text file to read that takes me out of the action. Totally voice acted and animated and it looks great. Every one of those games made me feel totally immersed in the action. There were problems to solve that involved interacting with the scenery.

Machinarium. A charming little side-scrolling puzzle solving game where you control a cute little robot. The game is seriously a work of art and there is always something new and amusing to see.

Risen. A 3rd person roleplaying game. A story that unfolds through great visuals, decent sound effects and interesting dialogue & characters. I can make decisions in that game which change the course of the adventure. Npcs move around and the game world changes depending on what I choose to do. I can also control how my character reacts to monsters. I can leap to the side, block attacks and time different attack moves to defeat my opponents.

All of the Baldurs Gate roleplaying games. Those were great single player rpgs. They were much more interesting to play than any of the simplified modern mmos.

All the Resident Evil games. The 4th game in the series had me glued to the screen for ages. Horrifyingly gorgeous and well thought out game.

All of these games have given me exciting, interesting or immersive experiences that I have never found in any of the recent mmos. In the current crop of mmos the only one I see that seems to be a high quality product is EvE. Despite the fact that its not quite my cup of tea, I have a lot of respect for that game. The rest of them seem to be low quality games that are more focused on quantity rather than quality. They also seem to be leaning too much towards single player game design rather than focusing on player interaction as a means of progressing and achieving things. Thats why I have a preference for single player games and other multiplayer games thats arent mmos at the moment. Oh I get the mmo itch every now and again and try and get into one of them but I find myself absolutely bored to death and appalled by the terrible production values of these games usually within a week. I used to be totally hooked on EQ1 and DAoC many years back but since then it seems to me that mmos are getting worse and worse. They have been becoming far too simplified and dull to hold any interest for me. I still frequent these forums though as I have hope that some day a decent mmo will get made by someone that will pull me back in. Perhaps Heroes of Telara or Guildwars 2 will be one of those games. Who knows.

No, I actually only play EQ2 on and off and I hate it, so much! I'm kinda waiting for that MMO that will make me happy again, like WoW did when I first started playing. But WoW has attrified and is no longer entertaining, and has lost any element of challenge it ever had. I tend to play games on the PC since my PC eats consoles for breakfast.....and cause Keyboard+Mouse = headshot

Its  socially acceptable to play PC games as an adult, tell someone your on Xbox live as  a 40+ year old and im pretty sure you will get some looks.

It has nothing to do with the actual videogames themselves but the platform. Quite a few PC only players play the same single player games console gamers enjoy.

Society is kinda fucked up.

Play magic the gathering and your a nerd but playing texas hold em makes you a social cool guy/gal.

Buy a comic book as an adult and be considered a loser adutl thats basically still a kid, yet hold a graphic novel instead and your cool and artsy.

Just do what you want and to the people that consider holding a controller a childs activity, you dress up a cyber doll and chat with people you dont know all day. its basically the evolution of the sims. I wouldnt be too proud of yourselfs or have a holier than thou attitude over console gamers lol.

For the most part I would have to agree with this.

Whether its' through work, my circle of friends or my musical colleagues, a good many of them (read most) don't play any such games. Oh sure, some play a game here and there but to the extent that many of us play, hang out on forums, talk about it, have extensive knowledge of such things, they just don't sign into the same type of vibe.

So in no way shape or form could I even hope to legitimize myself to any of the people I know by saying "but you don't understand, I play on PC. It's different".

Because in the end it really just boils down to "they are all video games and they all have something to offer and all have their issues".

As I have gotten older it became very apparent that anyone who tries to play the "I do 'this' therefore I'm better/more advanced/more intelligent/more socially adept" card really needs to look around.

To someone out there you will be considered a pariah. And it's just too tiring to please everyone so my thought is "dont'".

Just do your thing and stay out of other people's faces.

I haven't played on my console for years. My 10 year old has taken it over.

Console games lack depth, unlike PC games.  even my son states he would rather play on teh 360 and PS3 cause it's just easier.

I agree with the above two posters. Really most people I know think video games are for the socially inept and slow, so no matter what platform you play, if my experiences have taught me something, normal people are gunna look at you with shame.

Why get a console, when eventually almost all games come out on PC.  No more wishing you had a certain console just to play a certain game.  Paying for the game and the console is a steep price for just a game.

 

Only console I own and have set up is my Wii.  It's fun to have family night with the Wii.  Even Grandma can bowl!

I wonder if this is a cultural thing?

Half of the guys I work with routinely play PS3 or Xbox and many of them are over 40. It's not considered socially unacceptable in the slightest. The stereotype is that lasses watch soaps, and lads watch sports or play video games.

It was a bit of an epiphany the day I realized just how fucked up everyone else in the world is. There are no "normal people". The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can get on with not giving a shit about what they think.

agreed.

The day someone gave me shit over playing DnD and collecting the infinity gauntlet comic book set was the day I knew i needed to tune peoples opinions of hobbies out and enjoy my own thing.

like what you like.

If i took what those people thought to heart I would have never discovered Viking metal and god damn it i need my viking metal. \m/

I thought all MMOs nowadays suck and we have to go back to UO and SWG or the genre will fail hard. I can't believe there are still people enjoying MMOs.

Oh awesome! I never heard of viking metal. I've been looking for something that goes well with my Black Saboth, Corrosion of Conformity, and The Sword collection. I think I just found it.

Oh awesome! I never heard of viking metal. I've been looking for something that goes well with my Black Saboth, Corrosion of Conformity, and The Sword collection. I think I just found it.

Wow, I don't know many people who listen to Corrosion, bravo.
