Player Perspectives -Time To Quit?

Posted Jan 22, 2010 by Jon Wood

Player Perspectives -Time To Quit?

What are the warning signs that you may not be enjoying MMOs as much as you used to and that you should step away? MMORPG.com columnist Jaime Skelton shares her opinions in this week's Player Perspectives column.

"I don't really have the money to try a new MMO," a friend told me recently. "I guess I'll keep playing this one, even though I don't really play anymore." When asked why she didn't just quit, she told me, "It's boring, but I still have some friends that miss me and I like to pop on and chat with them once in a while." I couldn't convince her to quit, even after relating my own stories of how I'd gone through the same feelings repeatedly, to find I was just wasting time and money.

The MMO Industry doesn't want you to quit, of course. It makes money by your loyalty to its game styles and brands, just like any other entertainment business. By that logic, I shouldn't encourage players to quit either; writing about the industry pays my bills, and if they don't prosper, neither do I.
