MMORPG Burnout

People who know me might not realise that I’m actually a huge computer game player, particularly MMORPG’s and have literally played nearly every different one under the sun. Ok that might be an exaggeration, but I have played a lot of different ones and genres. One problem that I seem to encounter with every one I play though is burnout, that feeling where you just can’t be bothered to log in anymore and sadly a game you found addictively enjoyable just doesn’t interest you. My problem is that when playing an MMORPG, I want to invest all my time in it and have it as my sort of ‘home game’ – a game that I constantly play, always enjoy and to some minor level invest in it like you would a job or career. Now people might think this too much but if I’m investing my time into something, even has a hobby, I want it to be worthwhile.

Just to put into perspective of how many different MMORPG’s i’ve played and got burnt out on, here is a list:

  • World of Warcraft
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Rift
  • Everquest 2
  • Aion
  • Allods Online
  • Warhammer Online
  • Star Wars The Old Republic
  • The Secret World
  • Wildstar
  • Star Trek Online
  • Champions Online
  • Neverwinter
  • Guild Wars
  • Guild Wars 2
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • City of Heroes
  • Runescape

World of Warcraft has always been my main MMORPG though and having played it on and off since vanilla I think it’ll always be one of those ones that even after I’m burnout, I’ll always pick it back up again at a later stage. With the launch of BFA on the horizon and the release of the first four Allied Races, it’s given me plenty to do on the game and I seem to be deep into one of those periods where I’m thoroughly enjoying it and play regularly. Other than this I’m really excited for the early access launch of Bless Online so once that’s out I’ll definitely be jumping into that and seeing if it lives up to the hype and hopefully if so, it might become like WoW as one of the main MMORPG’s I play.
