    Are you talking about Secret World or Legends? Because the original game was group up for instances or stay a noob forever.

    But that's all it was anyway. You run around doing shitty solo quests where everything goes splat. And you team up to do the same 6 dungeons a million times and it has to be spread out over a long time because the dumbshit locks.

    EverQuest, the only MMO ever made that wasn't incredibly dumb. (Except for a few other old ones..)

    I like this guy, he's a bit of a fuckin dork but it's a fascinating look at dead MMOs.

    Those bums at Funcom should just make a single player RPG in this setting.

    Of course, instead they are just shitting out some walking sims.

    Then you are weird, and dumb, as well as a hopeless story fag. You disappoint. Also you played this game as an MMO as much as anyone else did.

    Well there is not much else there, that's the problem. The story fag thing is shameful though. The overall story and dialogue is really crappy. Yeah a comic book movie fan might be ok with it but for an adult it isn't acceptable. And the quest gameplay and dialogue is even worse. The investigation quests were so hyped and in reality they are such a let down. And there are not many of them. This is what the vast majority of quests are like:

    Traveller help me. Dee foreest. It speaks to meee... Dee forest say dat it may not rest while tortured souls roam. Please help me save dee foreest, by keeling dees tortured souls.

    LOL, tell me how adult you are, playing videogames. TSW had great story and writing for a game. Not high literature, but one of the best the medium offered for the last decades. That's ot saying much? Maybe. But since we are playing videogames, we have to compare them in their medium.

    TSW should be played as a storyfag adventure game, because the MMO part is banal shit boring.

    Are you saying you can't be an adult and play video games? TSW is shit, shit story, shit gameplay, shit dialogue.
