Returning to an MMO after a long break.
A group of friends and I got together to have a couple beers and we talked about mostly gaming and what we wanted to play next. So I started to thinking about all those MMOs that I had left for the next game. Sometimes because I was bored, level capped, burnt out, or just left my own reasons for that.
So I posed the question have any of you returned to game after not playing for a long time? Everyone said oh yeah. After digging a little deeper I’m sorry to say the biggest victim in this little experiment was World of Warcraft. Just about everyone in my group had played it, quit and then went back to it at one time or another, but never stayed.
We talked a lot of what the reasons for leaving games, everyone pretty much had their own opinions, but after listening I had to try something. So I decided I would play a game I haven’t played in a long time.
So I returned to Vanguard after a long break, I didn’t leave because I didn’t like the game it was more of a lack of playing time than anything. I really didn’t have time to dedicate to playing back then.
This return is almost like a new game to me because it’s been so long since last playing. Being a relative older game the graphics aren’t great but still fun to play and learn all over.
When you return to a game you remember all the good time you have had in that game, of course you would remember the bad time as well as what in game really annoyed you. Yeah those are too easy to remember.
I reminisced about the old times but none of the people I had once played with were around. I forced myself to play a little while, but for me the magic was gone. I can always remember the good times I once had in this game and I logged off thinking to myself would try again some other time? Probably!
So today I ask you, have you returned to an MMO after a long break?
