What is wrong with me? Am I so horribly vein that I require people around me to enjoy a personal experience. I am a soloer in all my MMOs, but if that is the case then why not play Two Worlds or Oblivion? But for me those two games are boring, even though they have incredible graphics, awesome rule sets, and tons of combat, magic, and strange loot.
The only thing I can deduce is that I am so vein that I need other people around me to prove that I am having fun? I know it seems strange, but unless I know there are other people around me — even if I have nothing to do with them other than just seeing them in my local area.
No one can argue that Oblivion, Two Worlds, Arx Fatalis aren’t fantastic games. I am constantly drawn to single player RPGs, but what is it that only keeps my attention for a couple of weeks? I like their playstyle, and its so nice knowing that if you need to walk away from the computer, the game will be exactly where you left off. In a MMO, even though if you play solo, the world is constantly changing around you.
The loot and combat experiences in a single player game is also far more engaging and visceral but again, I am drawn to MMOs. Why? Their systems are often dumbed down to the average gamers, the graphics are less appealing, and the overall performance of MMOs are staggeringly lower and laggy.
The only thing I can say, is that I must be so vein, that I step infront of the mirror each day and say,
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the veinest One of all!”
