Hello, my name is Eliot, and I’m still bitter over Star Wars: The Old Republic. This is a game I played and enjoyed at launch, and it was a title I had a lot of high hopes for… but unfortunately, it never really effectively delivered on the promise that it had sold itself on, quickly devolving into what amounted to World of Warcraft but with lightsabers. Instead of doing new and interesting things with its endgame model, it was just raiding all over again, and while I ultimately had some thing I liked about its endgame model as time moved on, I still feel like it fell far short of its potential.
Of course, the key thing to recognize here is that bitterness is not a productive emotion or even a particularly fair one. It’s not like the game lacks its fans or is somehow a bad title just because it didn’t ultimately keep my interest in the way I wanted. Rather, today we’re just looking at bitterness. Are there MMOs you’re bitter over? Games you wanted to love that you feel ultimately let you down?
Please note that you do not get bonus points for listing WildStar, but you are ultimately probably right about it just the same.
