What can be considered the most loved qualities of MMO gaming for some people can often be the most hated for others. Love and Hate has breached upon a number of subjects thus far. Is it the massive environments that appeal to your gaming desire, or do they all eventually suffer lackluster repetition? Maybe you enjoy the social aspect of MMORPGs, or maybe you avoid using public chat functions entirely. You can loathe the grind of MMO leveling, or you can embrace it on your journey toward building some fantastic RPG characters.
MMO players would argue that their games provide many options toward building multiple characters. My biggest problem when playing MMORPGs is my constant bouncing from class to class, or even character to character. Lucky for me, MMORPGs occasionally provide a way for players to handle multiple characters. In most instances players can even transfer achievements and items between your old and new characters. When you create a new character, it almost always tends to be much better suited for the MMO world than the one before it.
It?s great to have so many character options in such massive games, but some don?t come cheap. One limitation in many MMORPGs is a character?s inventory space. At a certain point, players are forced to find alternative options for item storage. Some games provide items like chests to increase storage space, while others provide increased inventory through a series of quests. It can be a tasking endeavor to accomplish these methods. It can be even worse when a player is forced to pay for the convenience.
Limitations on inventory space are okay but most MMOs force players to moderate their item collection. People shouldn?t have every weapon at their disposal of course. Still, there is no sense in restricting a player?s ability to pick up simple items like food just because their inventory is being occupied up by items they should never have to repurchase. Gamers definitely want a level of realism, but forcing players to waste game currency and items because they want to experiment with other endeavors is certainly not what they had in mind.
Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed
Dungeons are a staple of the MMO genre; large-scale challenges requiring co-operation and co-ordination between anywhere from five to a few hundred players to adequately complete. Of course, not all are created equal, and some stand head and shoulders above their peers. Today, I'd like to tip my hat to those few legends, those instances that'll stick with us for years to come as shining examples of how to do dungeons right.
Ten Of The Best MMORPG Songs Ever Heard
In many ways, an MMO is only as good as its music. Many of the best and most memorable moments in an MMO invariably have a song associated with them; a piece of music which brings the memories flooding back the moment it reaches one's ears. Today, I'd like to pay homage to some of those songs - and some of those moments. Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
Facebook's Purchase Of Oculus VR Isn't The End Of The World
