The Daily Grind: Do you have a love-hate relationship with an MMO?


In my experience, MMOs have the potential to be exhilarating and awesome as well as frustrating and stupid. Often times, all of these at once. Even in our most favored titles, there are annoyances that drive us up the wall and cause us to develop facial tics.

So it's no surprise that any given gamer's feelings toward an MMO are going to be multi-layered and complex. We ride the rollercoaster of excitement, drudgery, victory and defeat a hundred times on any given month. However, there are some titles that defy the normal trends and become a legendary struggle for our emotions, pulling between our undying love and our sheer hatred.

Is this you? Do you have a love-hate relationship with an MMO? Perhaps it started years ago, when you were seduced into its welcoming arms and you thought you'd found a match made in heaven -- only to discover its sinister side later in your gaming career. Are you constantly flip-flopping on your stance toward a game that you want to both marry and kill? Do tell -- and exorcise the demons within.
