Loving someone doesn't mean you lose the ability to see flaws; if anything, close proximity makes flaws all the easier to spot. The same is true for MMOs. Your six-year playtime in City of Heroes
isn't coming to an end any time soon, but you still loathe
the way the game handles experience post-30. You've been playing Star Trek Online
since launch, but the time it takes to get out of the starter ship rubs you the wrong way. You'd never say no to Warhammer Online
, but you hate the mono-gendered classes.
We all find it easy to say sweepingly negative things about games that we dislike on principle, but if you play EverQuest II
and not World of Warcraft
, you probably have a clearer picture of the former's failings. So today, think about your favorite game and say what it is that you don't like about it. Even if it doesn't break the game for you, what do you hate about a game you love? You'll feel better for getting it off your chest. Really.
