    Smile Why do I play MMOs?

    http://news.mmosite.com/content/c/20...ing_mmos.shtml
    The result of an overseas research themed with “Why do I play games” reveals the psychological effects such as achievements, competitions and relations acquired from the games have greater influence than game addiction. Therefore, we play MMOs to satisfy our psychological needs instead of experiencing puzzle solving or grinding.
    It is obvious that most of the players play MMOs to satisfy their psychological needs. And I believe that many people play MMOs for a variety of reasons. For me, exploring a new fantasy world is a very useful way to reduce pressure, which really helps me get away from my real life. So I mostly play it for simple entertainment and seriously don’t care much about how many puzzles I can solve in a mmo. The second reason is that most of my friends play MMOs. It is a lot of fun to beat the crap out of others in pvp with friends.

    Anyway why do you play MMOs?

    Great thread. I've been playing MMOs ever since I was a little kid — I started with Ultima Online. They've just always given me a satisfaction that no other genre of game could. I feel more immersed into MMOs rather than RPGs and FPSs because they're more interactive, and I have a sense of who I am in the game just as much as I do in real life, if not more. The character is a part of me, and the game (depending on quality) keeps me challenged and striving for more, which is what I spend years trying to achieve.

    I do, however, love to sit down with an RPG and plug my way through the storyline, but with MMOs, I have the freedom of creating my own lore, my own history, my own storyline — and they provide the flexibility to do so.

    I enjoy playing MMo's for a lot of reasons. I first started with Runescape and was told about it by a friend who actually had to make my account for me or I would not have gotten into playing MMOs at all. He told me how to make my account secure and explained what it was exactly and how to start playing the game. I still play it to this day, and I enjoy watching how the game has evolved over the years. Then I found Endless Online and Maplestory, and the company Nexon. I later found out about betas and closed betas and managed to take part in a few. I've explored various and unique parts of the MMO world. Mainly you can not only take part on your own journey through a story but also it makes you feel as if you are a part of a special society in a world where just as in real life people have their own passions and dreams and goals they want to achieve. I enjoy exploring new games and seeing how special each of them are, as well as watch how they develop over time to keep people playing them.

    I love rpg's, but though they are fun and getting new things in them are great, the need to share with others makes me play mmorpg's more than just normal rpg's. Heck some nights, even if I dont really feel like doing anything, just logging in and talking to guild or talking to folks in town is just a nice change of pace.

    *revives thread* n.n
    I've played MMO's since grade school and i've never put so much time or money into anything. I play them because i feel like once i find a good MMO it's something i can totally dive into and learn everything about. What fascinates me is the fact that it is literally another world. I just get so excited by that. It's another universe that you exist in and participate in. I don't make friends too well in real life and i have many friends in my MMO's who have been there for me, taught me lessons about life and given me a place to pour my heart life and soul into.
