I both love and hate those periods of time when I get sucked into an MMORPG. Usually this comes when a game first launches, or an expansion rolls out, or I “rediscover” the title. In any case, it’s a giddy rush to want to pour every gaming minute into it, eager to return to it after I left.
On the other hand, I know this is a fleeting period that disrupts the helpful routine that I normally establish and can even flip from “obsession” to “burnout” very quickly if I’m not careful. So while it’s fun to have those periods, I don’t want to stay in them for too long.
When is the last time you got absolutely sucked into an MMO, wanting to play it as much as possible? Tell us your tales and we’ll tell you ours!
