There are a lot of games which I like that I leave but still think about going back to, like Star Trek Online and Guild Wars 2. More often than not, I’m not playing them simply because I don’t have enough time in the day to do so, since I’ve got two games on my docket anyway and a third title rotating for Choose My Adventure. That’s all well and good, and I understand exactly why those games draw me back.
But then there are games like Revelation Online and Blade & Soul. These are not games I dislike, but it seems that I regularly find myself thinking about them and looking longingly in their direction, wondering about how fun they must be. And then I play them and I don’t have much fun, and I stop, and I’m left wondering why I keep getting drawn in again.
I think we’ve all got a few titles like that. There are always games we wind up playing time and again, games we know we aren’t going to like but which manage to just suck us in because we really want to like them. But maybe I’m wrong. Tell me, dear readers, are there MMOs you keep getting sucked back to even though you don’t like them? Not necessarily that they’re bad games, they’re just not for you?
