I frequently feel like an outlier among the Massively Overpowered crew. Everyone else jumps from game to game because there’s a new patch in Marvel Heroes or Trove or EverQuest II or Let’s Sit In An Empty Room And Yell At One Another IV: Deluxe Edition. Meanwhile, every week I’m playing the same games for the same reasons, and the only thing that rotates – very slowly – is what games I have on tap in general.
It’s not that patches don’t pique my interest; it’s simply that when I think about playing Star Wars: The Old Republic or Guild Wars 2 or whatever, I’m not interested in hopping in and getting a quick glance at the game because I want to be in there for the long haul. Which gets me thinking about you, dear readers. Do you jump into a game when a new patch catches your interest? Or do you tend to stick with your games of choice through thick and thin, even if the favorites of yesterday are offering something new?
