As we grow older and go through different phases in our lives, our gaming patterns and habits change. I used to be all about the first-person shooters and real-time strategy titles back in the day, and nowadays I barely touch either. Even when I stay in the same genre of gaming — such as MMORPGs — those habits have a tendency to morph over time.
For example, I used to do marathon gaming sessions as a bachelor that I can’t even conceive of as a married dad of four today. Years ago, I was a lot more tolerant of insane grinds and even briefly got into the raiding scene. I also stuck with one game at a time, mostly due to the subscription fee, which is as far as possible from my MMO juggling of today.
What about you? What did you used to do a lot in MMOs that you don’t today? Why did that trend change for you?
