MMOs just aren’t my cup of tea, that’s not to say they are bad, it’s just they don’t cater to my interests. Although my good friend and your good friend Jason Nawara isn’t like me. He fancies himself as quite the MMO fan. A few months back we got in the subject of World of Warcraft and I asked him about it, I wanted to know from someone I trust as a gamer as to why it’s so popular. Maybe I was fed disinformation, maybe there was something I was flat out missing and I would actually really enjoy MMOs. Maybe after this conversation, I would turn into the stereotypical WoW fan. Only leaving my basement to answer the door for the delivery man.
This did not happen. I spaced out a few seconds into the conversation. Even though I stared blankly at the old tube TV in my basement, seeing each individual pixel, his passion for WoW seeped through.
Jason did recently play the Elder Scrolls Online beta, all he did was complain. Not because the game wasn’t up to his standards, but because it surpassed them. He already has a backlog of games he wants to play, as well as a lot of work. He kept telling me how he’s going to have to play it and waste his time. It’s too good not to. I assume that this shiny new trailer isn’t going to do him any favors.
