If you can't back it up than it's as good as being irrelevant.

To date the only one I ever found worth playing was Planetside. Every MMORPG feels the same and the grinding and usually shitty communities are what ruin everything. These days everything is trying to be a WoW clone and even before that it was still pretty homogeneous thanks to Everquest.

Grind, rinse repeat. You can say that there are quests and things that you can do but its all the same shit, fetch quests or "kill this many of x" quests or "kill the big bad guy who will respawn again in a few hours."

Shallow gameplay, bad communities, no redeeming qualities. All MMO's are shit.

Exactly. It's the very defining factor of MMORPGs. Grind, grind, grind. Uninteresting things. Ridicilous quests. Everything's crap.

That also applies to every single other type of game that leaves 'content production' to multiplayer community. Ie. Left for Dead is fun for a while, but it gets boring & tedious after a while - it's just grind, grind, grind. Repetition to the ultimate degree.

The quintessential MMORPG was never intended to be fun. It is a shiny fašade for pseudo-elaborate operant conditioning. End of.

Don't blame THEM for their lack of taste, abhor them for being grateful slaves to neurochemistry. icon_drunk
