Another Disenchanted Gamer…
Check out this post by River at HLL. It’s eerily similar to a post I made a couple of weeks ago in which I basically said the same things about my brief time with RIFT (I like his hot girl pic better tho!). He and I weren’t exactly the only ones either.
So what is it about RIFT that makes people say “Oh yeah, it’s a great game, very polished, full of content and just about everything you’d want in an MMO BUT…”?
Have our tastes evolved? Have we gotten too old? Does any MMO coming out now days even stand a chance to win our jaded little hearts over?
Given what I and more than a few people have experienced with RIFT, by all accounts a very good game, I’d have to answer that with a tentative “No.” Like River and a few others, I’m banking on SWTOR to reinvigorate my love of the genre. The problem with that is I think I’m just fooling myself. I also think that I’m starting to come to grips with the fact that that ship has sailed. It’s a hard thing to contemplate, much less accept.
SWTOR will launch, people will mostly love it and gush about it all over the internet (myself most likely included) and oh… about a month or two in, most will likely be looking forward to the next big thing.
