Addicted to MMORPGs
Help me!

I am addicted to MMORPGs.

I keep getting cravings to dive mindlessley into an MMO. I have been resisting them for weeks now. It will subdue me and sheeplify me. It is my weakness.

I keep trying to justify in my head why it is not bad for me. Things like: I make nice friends, It is getting too cold outside, If I find it fun, is having fun a waste of time? etc.

But i know in my heart that it probably is bad for me.

I even start thinking things like: Well this life I am in is probably just a virtual reality anyway, so why not immerse myself in a better one with swords and magic and dragons.

This world is plastic, poison and evil old men.

I have plenty of other interests. I have a farm, I do bushcraft, read, (list goes on)... but an MMORPG just seems sooo yummy right now... mmmmmm MMO.

anyone want to play one with me / help me justify why I should play?


anyone wnat to discourage me?

Re: Addicted to MMORPGs
I got the best MMO that you could think off. You can fully interact with it. Creat Items, change the cenery. Its a continues world.

It can't be matched by any PC or derivetives of such.

It is called REAL LIFE, whats reall is the 2nd question.

Anyways, to play and have at it you need:

1st and for most a Guild
2nd you need to set some goals of what you want to achieve in this game
3rd work with your Guild members to accomplish your goals. That goes both ways. In return you help your members to accomplish theirs.


It just that there are players that are very advanced and they used some kind of magic or so, to create amnisia in the rest of the player population.

Have fun, you have farm dude, I would so be growing my own food! Keep pets, train them to mow the lawn. Trun the ground were plants previously were.

I am a former MMORPG addict, and the above poster has the right idea. I just redirected that energy to RL and started "PLing" and "Farming" IRL. Instead of "gearing" and "gimping" my char, I went to the gym and PLed my body. Dived into my online business instead of farming for gold and made that a success. In three years I went from being a 27 year old 300 lb gaming nerd to a 180 lb fit 30 year old supporting himself and not worrying about money.

I think I do that subconciously. That is also how I eventually quit an MMO. It suddenly dawns on me. wtf am i doing. I could do this in real life.

also I thought I got over my MMO thing many years ago (28 now). But for some reason it is relapse time.

Re: Addicted to MMORPGs
Yeah Im a former MMORPG addict too.

My real world experience was pretty extensive, I have lived all over the world, traveled to more than probably 60 countries, been to art galleries, studios, studied philosophy, visited ancient ruins, gone to live performances of art, theater, ballet, music. Trekked all over the place.
Sailed, swam, dived off everything that you could imagine.

I came to the conclusion that there was so much in the so called "real world" that i did not like, could not control not any desire to do so, but was expected to be this and that in order to "fit" in.

That at least in MMO's. There was a sense of acheivment that i couldnt reach in the real world, it gave me a sense of purpose, i got on well with people, it taught me about leadership, companionship, trading, teamwork, and i could turn it off any time i wanted.

I dont think MMO's are so bad personally.

Give me a good MMO any day over the real life thing lol.

It's possible irl if you join the army and work hard. It's also possible if you join a company and work hard, or start your own business.

I agree with you there, i never got the sense of achievement in real life that i did with MMO's

However, I havnt found a decent only lately that can grab my attention for more than about a month. They seem either too easy, or so stupidly difficult that I burn out on them really quickly.

Re: Addicted to MMORPGs
Fuck mmos.

No seriously, they're pointless.

I used to play loads but here's the thing... how long do you really want to spend playing one game?

The rest of your life like those EVE retards playing spreadsheets in space?

Fuck mmos, in the end they just become a chore but you can't stop playing because you feel it's a waste of all the time you've already put in... so you keep playing and you keep paying lol.

Giving your money to some soul sucking company for the privilage of grinding their shitty time sink of a game.

Be honest, you only do it for the social aspect in which case why not just play a decent single player pc game and have an IRC window open?
Any decent single player game will have a good online community with forums, chat etc anyway.
If you really want pvp, most AAA pc games have multiplayer anyway.

Mmos never have graphics or gameplay on par with regular pc games either.

Trust me, I saw the light.

I'm playing an open source remake of the classic space game Elite, it's called Oolite.

It's single player but between the forums and player made expansions, IRC and general business of the community, it's very social and we're still all playing the same game.

The difference is, if I choose not to play for a while, I'm not letting down a guild or party or whatever, I'm not falling behind in levels or gear, I can play at my own pace and it's not bleeding 15 bucks a month from my wallet either or possibly more, thanks to the ever popular pay to win cash shop model. >.>

I played Minecraft in the same way and ven when playing smp the server was small with a max of 30 or so people playing.

I find myself hating MMOs. Every time I log in a friend pesters me to do something with them and I really don't want to. So I make some excuse and log out. So I know what you mean.

Try Skyrim. It's a single player MMO, but it bored me to tears mechanically. I still play it just to wander around. Fallout 3 and NV are good. I got the former for $20 for Xbox with all the add-ons off of Amazon.

Play them. Enjoy them. Just keep a healthy balance. There's nothing wrong with finding enjoyment in a video game. A couple of friends of mine that forced themselves to cut down game time in WoW used the parental time controls.

You'd be surprised how well it worked, even for adults.

Re: Addicted to MMORPGs
I only found one MMO that was worth a damn in all these years. When I did I stuck with it for 8 years!

Was the only MMO that wasn't a constant grind, the only MMO where I felt like I had true freedom and could actually be a Hero.

I speak of course of the seminal City of Heroes franchise.

I spent 8 amazing years slugging it out with vilains and creating unique concepts.

Sadly, NCsoft being the idiots they are, have killed my only MMO.

After 9 years of great gaming, the City of Heroes servers will go offline forever November 30th. redface

With that, my time MMOing comes to an end.

I'm playing an open source remake of the classic space game Elite, it's called Oolite.

It's single player but between the forums and player made expansions, IRC and general business of the community, it's very social and we're still all playing the same game.

The difference is, if I choose not to play for a while, I'm not letting down a guild or party or whatever, I'm not falling behind in levels or gear, I can play at my own pace and it's not bleeding 15 bucks a month from my wallet either or possibly more, thanks to the ever popular pay to win cash shop model. >.>

I played Minecraft in the same way and ven when playing smp the server was small with a max of 30 or so people playing.

YES. I love minecraft. I forced myself to quit that too. I was playing too much instead of going outside. minecraft!!!!

I hate this "going outside" notion. People who "go outside" usually do it for some stupid shit. Normal people go to work or the grocery store or whatever. Idiots "go outside", get drunk, behave like an idiot and think it makes them street smart.
