Let me tell you, going back to an old MMO after a very long time away can be a shock to your memories. I had always thought of City of Heroes as having snappy quick combat, for instance, but that was a faulty memory that didn’t recall all of the slow activation times and extensive cooldowns. And when I went back to Warhammer Online this past week, I discovered more color in general and bigger, more vibrant skill icons than my memory recalled.
That’s just how our memories work, and when you do go back to an old favorite, it can be a shock to the system as memories realign with reality. What do you remember differently about certain MMOs than ended up being false when you investigated it?
