Once upon a time, a young servant traveled from a faraway land to a faraway land. Oh, look! A swallow! The little bird lead the man over the mountains, to an old Holy Shrine. There, in the middle of the cobblestone path, stood an ancient, gigantic LCD monitor! The young servant from the faraway land in the faraway land thought, "Dude, what are those weird characters on this device? 'Log in'?" He did not understand anything. But as he touched the monitor with his hand, a bright light shined on his ugly gob--um, face. And so, the young servant began the adventure of World of Warcraft!
I'm not kidding, if the World of Warcraft books were full of content like that, I'd buy every single one of them.
...oh! Hey, and welcome to a new episode of Nico Talks About Stuff! My name is Servant. And today, we'll talk about MMORPGs. There are so many of them... Silk Road, Cabal Online, World of Warcraft... well, I have to say tha-- oh, I have to go. Someone's coming.
...um, who was that servant?
Welcome to a new episode of Nico Talks About Stuff. If you didn't already know by the title and my username, my name is Nico. And today, we'll talk about... what, there's a topic already? What servant?!
Okay... MMOs. There are a LOT of them. Rappelz, Guild Wars, and Flyff are some examples. I play none of them.
It's not that I hate MMOs, but I think there are way too many contras. But don't worry. I'm not one of these people that say MMO players would behave like this when they're outside:
So, this is... the Real Life? Those graphics are just mindblowing... but what's the story? I didn't quite catch that.
I mean, I played some MMOs back in the day, like Flyff for example. And of course they can be fun, but it's not my type of games. For me, it's just about beating up the same monster all the time to then brag about your awesome equipment a few months later... and then get killed with a shoehorn.
Of course, MMOs have some pros. But now, I want to tell you some things I HATE about MMOs.
1. "Buff me" scroungers
Nothing to explain here. By the way, BUFF ME!
2. Stupid stereotypes
This actually happened to me once:
Player: Hey, where are you from?
Me: I'm from Germany.
Player: ewww, nazi.
WHAT THE FUCK? Why does this happen so often...?!
TotallyNotAScam: Hey! My name is Yam! Something's wrong with your account! Please give me your password so I can check your account!
SomeNormalPlayer: Oh, okay. My password is "password123".
TotallyNotAScam: You sell your set for 100,000 gold? I take it!
SomeNormalPlayer: Hey, hold on, why is it only 10,000 now instead of 100,000?
But, I think it's actually your fault if you fall for them. I don't know how it is with the other communities, I'm talking about Flyff experience. But still, MMOs are not my thing.
However, at least they're better than those weird anime dating roleplay games...
"I don't know if I can forgive you after what you've done!"
-> "Buy ice cream for her"
"Oh, ice cream! You are forgiven!"
Okay, that concludes this episode of Nico Talks About Stuff. Leave a comment below so I can see your thoughts on this topic. See ya next time!
Oh, and also, happy 1 year anniversary to Revolution Radio! I know it was yesterday, but I post a new topic here every Sunday, so... yeah.
