It’s sort of a running joke in the gaming world, especially for folks whose gaming revolves around Steam, that we all buy games cheaply and never actually play them. I see you! But I’ve been wondering whether it happens to MMO players with MMOs too.
I’ve seen it start happening to me: I’ve bought MMOs whose developers I wanted to support but don’t actually have time to play. For example, a while back I bought No Man’s Sky, which wasn’t even cheap, because the studio turned itself around and became something worth supporting. And I’ve definitely backed some MMORPGs in Kickstarter and early access not because I particularly wanted to test them out but just because I wanted to see it happen eventually. But then I still gravitate back to my handful of favorite games and haven’t been arsed to actually play the new stuff I wanted to support.
Are there MMOs you’ve bought and never played? And why specifically did you do it?
