The Daily Grind: Which MMO is just far too frenetic to be playable?


If you were not aware, I really liked WildStar. I did not, however, like the fact that the game started out and continued being… well, way too noisy for its own good. The game started off right away with what felt like a nonstop barrage of totally radical electric guitar riffs, cupcake. From there it’s explosions, noises, here’s a timed challenge get a move on, totally radical and awesome, remember to always recycle to the extreme!

There was slower stuff in the game, of course, like housing. But right from the start, some people were going to bounce off because it was just an immediate and frantic assault of noise. And it’s not alone; there are a fair number of games that start with an explosion of light, sound, and activity that can easily overwhelm new players. So which MMO do you think is just far too frenetic to be playable? Which game throws so much information and noise at you that you just can’t handle it?
