 What  you need is in game friends.  The only reason MMO's are fun is because of grouping with people you like to hang out with. For the most part MMO game play is nowhere near as good as SRPG. But, Working together with friends and beating tough content and having fun with mediocre game play can  trump the better game mechanics of a solid single player game.

The "all friends" guild idea is nice but try an MMO that you can really group in, like Vanguard.

Other than that maybe try some PnP games with your coworkers. The hardest part about playing them is finding enough people. Sounds like you have a decent pool to work with.

Good luck!

There's nothing wrong with setting aside a hobby that you once loved to take up a new one. I routinely lose interest in video games of all types so I step away from them for awhile. For me, it's cyclical. I play games for a few months then stop for a few months. In between, I'll do something else that interests me like catching up on reading, or building a big model, or cycling... basically anything that isn't video games.

I hear you.

I have lost the desire to play MMO's many times.

 

Take 6 months or a year off and I would guess you would be ready to play again.

My Favorites were the Original Everquest, DAOC and WOW.

I think eventually something decent will come out and will hook everyone again.

After much reflection I finally figured out why I don't get that "feeling" from MMOs anymore. The nexus of causality is free time. When I had more free time I could get a better feel for the player community in MMOs. The MMOs that I grew most attached to were ones that I was able to develop friendships within the game. No having enough disposable time greatly reduces the probability of attachment via social interaction.

 

So I can either accept the fact that due to my lack of time chances are I won't be able to enjoy MMOs like I used to or some fundamental design choices in future MMOs will decrease the amount of time needed to reach that critical time spent to achieve social attachment.

I usually end up back in Morrowind.  A while later I'm back in my home MMORPG having fun again.

I'm only playing the role chosen for me. Who you supposed to be?

1/13/14 9:51:50 PM#27

I hear you Op.  I'm in the same boat.  I dabble between everquest and skyrim where I'm finding out Im just not a fan out action combat but love deep RPG customization.

I'd just expect there would be a basic game that has 100% customization (and consequence for your selection) in a do-whatever-I-want type of world. I like quests. Just read them to me. Text is so last century.

Looking forward to Might and Magic X which I enjoyed the alpha. old school grid-based, turn-based combat. skill point allotment. classless.  Any MMO I'm interested in has no due date in sight.

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.



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 :)



I would agree if your basic premise was right. The premise that MMOs have NOT changed over the years, that these mass of new players want the same experience that most players wanted awhile back.

I disagree with that basic premise.

Is everything ruined forever? I certainly hope not, but it will take a miracle to bring back what is missing from MMORPGs. The numbers (meaning MONEY) is possibly not there. Don't really know as MMO developers/publishers have not tried in a long, long while.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

Here is what Dr Scot recommends for your MMO ills. Find a good guild, start with old gaming mates and track down a guild that suits you. Don't worry too much about the MMO itself, todays easymode creations are all the same really. Only go for a guild that is in a MMO that was/is P2P or B2P.

Don't worry. You'll retire in your 60's and have all the time in the world again

 

In about 30 years half of the population in any given game will be old retired men and women lol

I know the feeling.  Every so often I have to take breaks away from all games, just not mmo's and do something else for awhile.  I really does help to be away.  Might take a week, moth, or even a year or more.

Just take a break and enjoy life away from games for awhile.

I'm not an IT Specialist, Game Developer, or Clairvoyant in real life, but like others on here, I play one on the internet.

I'm not going to suggest a game (MMORPG.com has tons).  Instead, I'm going to suggest how to play a game.

I enjoyed your post, OP, and probably would have enjoyed that big wall of text, too.  One thing I picked up on is the fact that you miss the adventure.  This kind of spoke to me.  I'd been playing Skyrim for months, and listening to the NPCs say the same things over and over and over (and over) and over and over again, and I knew I needed something like it but with real people.  So I got back into MMOs once again.  Thing about MMOs though, for me anyway, is you need to get involved with other players to truly feel like you're on an adventure, and the further trouble is connecting with other players when you're new.

I simply chatted to a group of my friends in the real world and we all decided on a game to throw ourselves into.  2 months later, we're still playing and it's a blast.

I suggest you try the same thing!

Isn't it pretty obvious? If you lost the desire for MMOs .. do something else. It is not like there is a lack of entertainment.

I don't see a good reason why you have to "love" this hobby.

I am in same boat OP, I have not lost my desire for MMO's I just do not like the direction MMO's have gone and do not find these new MMO's challenging or fun.  Its not us we know what we like, its the games and where the market has gone too.

Congratulations!

Oh, wait... You see this as a bad thing? Dude, I've been trying to quit mmo's for YEARS. It's like this unrelenting, soul-sucking vice that's followed me around for the better half of my life depriving me of everything I hold dear. 

I guess my advice is take this rare opportunity to do something else with your life while you have the chance, because once this next batch of mmo's release you'll be back.
