This was gonna be part of a final recap post for blaugust but I realized I already have other topics coming up for the next three days and oh my, then the month is already over – can you believe it?
One of my blogging prompts for this mad ride of blaugust was MMO regrets. I am generally not much into remorse in my private life and I have little tolerance for the type of gamer scorn that follows bad MMO breakups. As commented on one of Braxwolf’s posts recently, the easiest way to have a life without regrets is not to regret anything. That seems like a well-duh thing to say but at a second and third glance, that line becomes more powerful.
When it comes to my time inside MMO worlds however and especially online communities, there’s a thing or two that’s left a bitter after-taste in my mouth. Not an all-encompassing grief or anything but a smear on that picture nonetheless. I think MMO regrets are a pretty fascinating topic because rarely do players invest as much (in many different ways) as they do in this genre. And indeed, there’s a lot of company when it comes to this topic:
- My MMO regrets: The Iron Dagger
- MMO regrets: Light Falls Gracefully
- MMO regrets: Biobreak
- MMO regrets: Gaming SF
- Regrets, I’ve had a few: Tobold
- My MMO regrets: Healing the Masses
- The back burner and regret: Through Wolf’s Eyes
- My own MMO wistful regrets: I have touched the Sky
- They’re all okay by me: Why I game
I’ve a feeling there were more but blaugust is hard to keep track of, especially when you don’t get pinged directly. If I missed anyone or if you’re yet to post on this topic, let me know so I can add ya!
