Compare the comment of a blogger Cuppycake who has played MMOs since EQ and Sai Pannell one who has never really played any MMOs.
The difference is quite striking isn't it. And I've felt how both of them do.
I felt like this back in 2004...
I've barely seen daylight since the beta started on Sunday. I've been locked up in my bedroom with the computer, only coming out to grab something to drink, or something to eat... and go to sleep. I've been so obsessed with this game, its almost sad.
And I've felt like this many times since...
I logged in and played for about 15 minutes last night, and to be honest – I did one quest and instantly sighed in annoyance.
I think I've been in a type of mourning for a while because unlike Sai, I no longer feel similar to this with each new MMO I try:
I love how this game takes you to various places. Beautiful lakes, lush forests, humble farms, grungy mines, elegant buildings in the sky, cute little villages... I never know what to expect next, and where my next Quest will take me to.
Instead I feel like Cuppycake:
Whether it’s Free Realms, EQ2, LotRO, Wizard 101, Runes of Magic, DDO, or any of the other MMOs I have installed on my hard drive, NOTHING has kept my interest or inspired me. I think I really might be getting crufty, and that makes me sad. =(
I don't know what crufty means but I think it might just describe me.
