The Daily Grind: What’s the most boring MMORPG around?
I’ve mentioned in a previous Daily Grind that I once fell asleep in the middle of an incredibly boring raid in EverQuest. It wasn’t even that late and I wasn’t overly tired; I was just super bored of the whole pull-fight-inch-forward ordeal. My friends had to call me to wake me up so we could continue on. Embarrassing? At the time, yep. Now I realize it was just one more reason to hunt for more interesting types of gameplay — for me.
I wouldn’t say, however, that EverQuest was the most boring MMORPG I’ve ever played. In fact, as I contemplated how to phrase this question, I remembered that there are plenty of MMORPGs — EVE Online, for instance — that seem extremely exciting while you’re reading about their highlights, though the day-to-day is fairly mundane. And I’ve got to take into account different tastes; I guarantee most of you would find my resource spreadsheet obsession in Star Wars Galaxies dreadfully dull, yet even just typing about it gives me a pang of regret that it’s gone.
What do you think is the most boring MMORPG around, and why?
