I’m thinking of taking a dip into MMORPGs, something I’ve avoided for various reasons. But now that I’ve got a good Internet connection, some free time in the evenings and am at least willing to consider paying for a game again and again eac month, I’m looking to get an unbiased view on whether I’d like it.
First thing is I would pretty much do it solo. Maybe I may join temporarily with another freebooter if I can find one going in the same direction interested in having me along, but very rarely and only when I was feeling particuarly sociable. Certainly I’ll never make appointments to be anywhere at a certain time, and I will not join a guild.
So, treating it like a single-player game is there really a lot to do, with a good collection of difficult-yet-solvable enemies and acheiveable yet satisfying goals?
Is it feasible for my character to reach the pinnacle of his abilities only doing solo quests, and are there enough to do this without being too repetitive?
