OP  1/13/14 5:39:17 PM#1

I was writing a wall of text but i deleted everything because these days nobody read walls of text anymore.

 

Shorter version

 

Once i was younger with lots of spare time and after i discoverd the Internet for myself at 1998 i immersed myself in a lots of game like Eressea, Rorqual,  Tibia, Planetarion, Neocron, Project Entropia, Battlefield 2, Rappelz, Perfect World International, Eve online and league of legends.

 

I never played 2 Games at once expect planetarion and i was powergaming on a high nerdlevel sinking ungodly ammounts of time into this games, the community and my ingame relations. With time i grow older and today i realize with 35 that i lost it.

 

No matter how hard i look, no matter how manny games i download and try the Spark is gone! I can't dedicate myself to a mmo anymore, of course my lifestyle changed my sparetime isnt that ample anymore as it used to be when i was younger but i have 1-2 hours daily that i could easily sink into a mmo and i would LOVE TO sink them into a mmo but i cant find something that excite me. I asked my colleagues at work and suprisingly manny of them have the exact same problem. There are more mmo's out than ever but we fail to find something to bring the old times back where we had long sessions , awesome fights and adventures. Same for solo games, the last game i enjoyed was Skyrim i own 88 games on steam and i can't bring myself to play one. I have games from the humbel bundles i not even botherd to install and try out.  My friends and i ended up playing league of legends more or less regulary and to be honest we not even like it anymore. We just used to the game and can't find something else. Thats horrible, i feel like a kid in a candy store sick of sweets. Anyone else know this feeling ?

If there's one thing this place isn't short of, it's bitter mmo vets that hate everything new. Probably not the best place to find inspiration...other than many examples of what not to become.

I'm not subbed to a Mo atm first time for years,but have The Repopulation and Divergence backed so have those ready and waiting so to speak and Elite Dangerous,SC,SOTA if you class them as Mo's.

But with the new wave of devs a bit of creativity is around the corner pretty much any flavour u like really and now Pantheon might wet your appetite looks like we PC gamers are coming out the drought.

You may need to sub but I think most of the F2P bubbles are bursting and there is a good choice now and both payment options can survive with each other.

Good point but where else to ask ? This website is THE reference for mmo's

I dont think myself as a bitter vet that want to old times back and curse new stuff. Mmo's and games used to play a big part in my life and somehow i lost it and i have no idea how this happend. There is a void that i wish to fill , monney for shops or subscriptions are also no problem. Im afraid that i lost my own imagination power and creativity , i dont have a TV for over a decade now because i never needed it but lately i catch myself a lot watching anime and drama streams on the net. I never liked this passive kind of entertainment but now its my reality. Did i became too old allready ?

 

I have 3 games on my radar, DayZ , the repopulation and satelite reign. I backed the last one on kickstarter. I really hope i find something decent to sink my teeths into.

Play Dark Souls and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, not MMO's but they may respark the love of games, did for me. Be sure NOT to look up guides for Dark Souls for maximum enjoyment unless you really can't figure out where to go, but don't look guides up to beat bosses and stuff.

For me single and co op games have been more fun than mmos. Could be my interests have just changed, maybe mmos really do just suck. I have a hard time believing the latter with so many people playing them though :)

The way I see it is, I'm a gamer at heart. I'll always play games if I can so I play what's fun. MMOs changed once and they'll change again. Maybe they'll go back to how they were, maybe they'll change to something I like even more. Till then I'll stick with the games I am having fun playing.

The one thing I'll never do is sit around saying " everything is ruined forever!! "  But I will enjoy making fun of people who do :)

ive lost all hope in the mmorpg business. F2P/P2Win is just way too lucrative and widely accepted now that sub games have no chance unless its WoW where people have already invested almost 10 yrs into.  People no longer buy games with the mentality of staying with it for years. they play for a few weeks, throw as a bunch of money at the cash shop to get their fix asap, then move on to the next game. people want more fun in the shortest amount of time possible- and they dont mind paying a pretty penny for it.. 

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

Deus Ex Human Revolution was a pearl under the games. I really enjoyed it since im a big fan of the old deus ex titles aswell as System Shock II. I dont know dark souls i will have a look at it. Thanks :)

 

@DamonVile

 

I also do love co op games, (sadly i figured my reflexes for shooter are garbage). Have any recomendations for a good co op game thats not 10 years old ? I would apreciate this because i look for a nice game to play with 2 - 4 people. No mobas please

Here are a couple games you may not have tried out: Wakfu, and Uncharted Waters Online.

 

Uncharted Waters is a game that will give you a sense of accomplishment when you progress through the game. It is something I had missed for a long time before I found it.

well defiance is $5 and pretty much a co-op. It's fun to play till the story ends. It's a shooter but low skill

orcs must die 2 is a very fun 1-2 player tower defense..also $5 :)

skyrim and kingdom or amalur were both good rpgs. The second one is a bit like skyrim light.

saints row 3 or 4 are both a riot if you have a .....dirty violent sense of humor and don't mind a whole lot of suspension of disbelief :) I liked 3 better but who doesn't want to be the president with super powers...so 4 has that.

If you never played mass effect or dragon age you missed two of the best games ever....

There really is no shortage of games once you leave the mmo field.

Maybe take a vacation from gaming for a while?

I see people all the time (esp on these forums) that really need a break instead of just sitting around desperate to find something. Just get up and walk away for a bit, go enjoy another hobby for a week, a month, whatever; and come back later to see how you feel about games then.

You said it yourself, you'd a kid in a candy store, but you're sick of sweets. Well, if you eat a 5lb bag of candy, chances are you're going to be pretty sick of it. So get away from the candy.

My advise:

 

1. Make a guild with all your real-life friends and colleagues. Then you start together in one MMO. I promise: It will fun, because you know each other, and because obviously none of you is dedicated to be a hard core gamer. I would recommend GW2, but there are a number of other options.

2. Wait for Divinity: Original Sin. It is a single-player RPG with coop. It will be more like the Ultima series, with a lot of freedom. Definately tries to be different and bring some kind of pen & paper feeling back to the video game world.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

One thing I've enjoyed recently is watching humor videos of people playing game recently - GTA online, especially.  It's cheering to watch people having so much fun. :)

I certainly get "that feeling" every so often:

 

Play a type of MMO different to what you played before. Often this is a case of just being bored with common MMO mechanics.

 

If you don't care about graphics try a MUD like this that really does things different to your typical MMO.

 

Take a break from online gaming for a while and play single player games.

Yeah I got that feeling also. I think it is mainly because games today have little meat to the actual game that we once enjoyed. They are designed to streamline you from start to finish (end game) in a few short weeks and end up getting boring not long after. There is no feeling of adventure in the journey, just a fizzle before a little pop at the end.

Most of the stuff we see now is just rehashed content with a different spin, we already know what to do, how to do it to max efficiency and pretty much what to expect so there is not much of a reward when you do something again for the ?? time.

I'm not subbed to any either, I have EvE online month free going but only have few days left on it. I've been playing mmorpg's 10 years, the past 5 years have been poor, 2012 - 2013 was the worst. Elder scrolls and Wildstar I might look at but I'm not going to dive in demanding they take my money, I'm going to wait. I'll likely return to WoW when the new expansion is released.

OP, it happens.   Is it a sign of age? Maybe, I dunno.  I have lulls in my interests all the time.  For example, for as long as I can remember I've always loved reading.   But every so often I can't seem to get into reading anything.  I'll scour the net for obscure books in weird genres, try re-reading old favorites and nothing will do it for me.  So, I'll do something else and forget about reading for awhile.  Then one day I will pick up a book that sounds decent and I'm right back into it again.  I'll  try reading a book that was crap to me months before, enjoy it, and wonder why the hell I didn't read it the first time.

The same thing has happened with me with MMO's and even video games in general multiple times.  Sometimes the thought of playing an MMO makes me sick with boredom.  Then one day I will just get an itch to go explore a world I've never seen and the next thing I know I'm playing something bizzare like Age of @#$%ing Wushu or something and enjoying it.

I guess what I'm trying to say is don't worry about it.  Go find something new to do and get sick of that.  MMO's will still be there when you get back.

I'm thinking you must have been busy with a lot of stuff...having less and less time for gaming so much so that when you do have time...it doesn't feel as satisfying as before...?

I sort of got that feeling lately...
