The last few years, I think I’ve had a healthier relationship with MMOs, chiefly because I’ve pressured myself less into playing things I knew I wouldn’t like. When you play things for reasons other than “because I personally want to spend time in this game,” I think you’re more likely to leave angry. So I haven’t left anything in a huff in a long time.
But I have left MMOs. I’m certainly on a break from Guild Wars 2, even though I spent the spring getting closer to caught up to the current season than ever. But that’s mostly because another title took over my gaming time, not because I bear GW2 hard feelings. I love it and I’ll be back. Likewise, I have been spending so much time in another sandbox that I reluctantly packed up my Ultima Online house and then 90 days later let it fall since paying a sub for a game I wasn’t really playing seemed foolish. I’ll be back to that eventually too.
What made you leave the last MMO you quit?
