The Daily Grind: What game is wearing you down?

Eliot Lefebvre

There's always that one game. We all know what it is, even though which game it is changes for person to person, but we know about it because we're adamant that we won't play it. We don't want to. Half the time we've read up on the game and explained in detail how many things we dislike about it and why we're certain -- certain! -- we would never enjoy it. Other players can praise it to high heaven, over and over, but we won't even touch it. We don't want to, no way.

Cue two months later when we're playing it and won't stop talking about how awesome it is.

What game is slowly wearing down your resistance? Because there is one, we all know it, and it's half a question of whether or not you admit that your resistance is slowly eroding. Is it the newly free-to-play Dungeons and Dragons Online, because you don't like the business model? The nine-hundred-pound gorilla that is World of Warcraft? Maybe you're pretty sure you'd enjoy EverQuest II but you still have a lingering resistance to playing ti for whatever reason. Which game have you sworn up and down you won't play that you're growing more attracted to -- or, which ones did you swear you wouldn't touch in the past that you're now thrilled with?
