The other night in RIFT
guild chat we were talking about other MMOs we have played. Despite the rancor this subject can inspire among some, ours were mostly positive memories -- yes, it's entirely possible to pay allegiance to more than one game! Shocking!
While we learned the MMO biographies of each of our members, one guy had a few strong words for Lord of the Rings Online
. "Great game, no doubt -- but I just couldn't play it,"
he said. "The follow camera drove me nuts and made me nauseous. So that's that."
It made me think: While we may assume that players eschew games for big reasons, that's not always the case. Sometimes the reasons are small, almost petty -- but nevertheless "deal-breakers," each and every one.
So has a little thing kept you away from what you recognize as being a great MMO?
