The Return

Posted Jul 23, 2013 by Suzie Ford

The Return

Everyone's done it: Played a game to death and then moved on only to come back at a later date. In his latest piece, columnist and game designer Matt Miller talks about "The Return" of the prodigal player. See what he's got to say before heading to the comments to tell of your "return" stories.

Almost all of us have done it. We completely and fully invested ourselves in an MMO, levelled up to the cap, geared our character out, got a ton of achievements or badges or whatnot, beat all the end-game content there was to offer, and then something newer and shinier came along and we pulled up stakes and moved into that world for a while.

Then we realized that world wasn’t as good as the one we left behind. Maybe it was the graphics, maybe it was the gameplay, maybe it was the community. No matter the cause, you stopped playing that MMO and moved on to other things. Maybe a new console game came out and you just HAD to do all the sidequests to fully understand the story. Maybe you got a new significant other who doesn’t see your MMO addiction as an attractive quality. Whatever the case, you abandoned your beloved MMO for months, maybe even years. And then it happens.
