When Gaming Isn't Fun Anymore
In a short span of five months, I am burned out on WoW. I can't take any more of the overinflated epen0r or ebewbies, the constant 'ur mom' insults, the God awful grammar and spelling skills, the guild drama, the personal attacks, the whining, begging, scamming, spamming...need I go on?
A friend of mine called WoW 'The AOL of MMORPGs'. He was right. I mean, has anyone read most of the posts on the WoW boards? My God, for a game spouting it is the largest MMORPG in the world, the majority of the community sucks ass.
All I wanted to do was play a game and have some fun, relieve stress, enjoy something. But no, it has become a chore and has lost the shimmer it used to have. I think after Valentine's Day, I am going to suspend my account and call it a day. My logic is this - if a game isn't fun anymore, there is no point playing it. I have quit RPGs in the past for the same reason, and I haven't went back to them since.
I'm sure there are other rpg's out there, but to be honest, I'm kinda burned out on the very idea of even playing a game at all. Anyone else had this problem?
In hindsight, it was fun while it lasted.
