Some of our readers may believe that I am gregarious and outgoing. This is not true by any stretch of the imagination. Despite this, I’m rarely if ever reluctant to take on group content in Final Fantasy XIV. The community is friendly, my feeling of confidence in the game’s mechanics is steady, and I generally assume even going into things blind that I will be able to handle myself and shan’t have enormous problems.
But this is not universal. You know what game always made me nervous to even attempt group content? Star Wars: The Old Republic. I never felt like I had a solid grasp on all of the game’s mechanics and always found myself struggling with adapting to the general community perception, which itself felt somewhat nebulous. And it’s not even a game I would describe as being particularly difficult!
We all have group content we don’t necessarily like to do, styles that don’t appeal, but today my question isn’t about that. It’s about games in which you’re reluctant to even take on group content, regardless of the difficulty or lack thereof. So what are the MMOs wherein you’d just prefer not to group up, regardless of whether or not you like to play solo?
