I am sure there are many of you out there that have heard of the new Progression server over at the Everquest MMO.
Like many of you, I have fond memories of stepping out into the wilds of Norrath to find glory, gold, and fortune. But like many of you as well, the trip back has not been as fun as I thought it would be.
Of course the first day back in the game is going to be rough — I forgot even how to move around, let along fight and cast spells. There was also a crazy amount of people in every zone, so it was tough just finding a rat to kill.
I doubt that I will stick around long. First that would mean spending 15 bucks a month on a game that is 10 years old, but also, to be honest, I did all of this 10 years ago!?! So have you, thus why do it all over again?
It is great fun talking about “the good ol’ days” but how actually fun was it?
I also am so afraid that the community and Sony will just blaze through the content and within a year the game will be right up par with the other servers — and again, I didn’t play Everquest because of many of their design decisions: Nothing has changed.
So here is a toast to the great “good old days” of MMOs — but I think I will keep looking elsewhere for fun.
