When WildStar first came out, I remember reading (and even personally sharing) a whole lot of praise for how many things that the game’s maps kept throwing at you to do. I never settled on whether that was a positive thing to have so much going on, because it does seem a little demeaning to have an MMO treat me like I was some hyperactive kid who needed constant high-energy entertainment. Then again, I was rarely bored in that game.
I am very prone to being distracted in MMOs if new objectives, rewards, or events emerge around me. Just try to find me in New World, where I’ll be meandering off of the path to my mission objective for a bit of exploration, “just one more” gathering node, or to take part in a public quest.
Are you like this? How easily distracted do you get in MMOs when other options and goals pop up on the playing field around you?
