Post Why MMORPG's?

Why MMORPG's?

I'm doing a research about MMORPG's, why people play them etc. I have a couple of questions, please answer if you have the time (:

۞Why do you play MMO's?
۞How many hours/day do you play?
۞When did you start MMO's?
۞For how long have you played your current games?
۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
۞What kind of people play what kind of games?(Sinse there are many who don't understand this question, what I mean is Personality, ethnics, etc etc)

۞Other stuff you like to add.

You don't have to answer all of the questions if there is any of them that you don't feel like answering or don't know what to answer.

Thanks~

Also, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this thread.

۞Why do you play MMO's?
This depends on the MMO itself. I generally look for cool those with cute content. :3

۞How many hours/day do you play?
Weekdays, little, weekends, about 3-4 hours.

۞When did you start MMO's?
I started with Runescape, and then I discovered my most favorite MMO ever - Ragnarok Online. About 2003, mind.

۞For how long have you played your current games?
RO is still the longest. Count 'em.

۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
Gameplay.

۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
Not at all. Really. Except now I tend to insert "orz" or "gg" into my sentences.

۞What kind of people play what kind of games?
I don't understand this question.

۞Other stuff you like to add.
None.

You don't have to answer all of the questions if there is any of them that you don't feel like answering or don't know what to answer.

Thanks~

Also, I'm not sure if this is the right section for this thread.

There you go. :3

۞Why do you play MMO's?
Fun, and probably you can interact, although that's doable in real life. :V

۞How many hours/day do you play?
When I'm free, almost the whole day. Rofl. During school times very little. Just lurking forums etc.

۞When did you start MMO's?
Since Maple. Ahahaha D:

۞For how long have you played your current games?
I don't stick on games for long.

۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?


۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
Not much, although stuff like orz, gg etc tend to rub off my real life speech sometimes...._.

۞What kind of people play what kind of games?
Idk. I'm only one person

For fun. Great way to take a different perspective on gaming, and incorporating the fun of gaming and social intercourse with other people around the world.

۞How many hours/day do you play?
3-4 hours of active play, usually. The other 21~20 hours are spent in AFK/chat mode.

۞When did you start MMO's?
Oh gosh, sometime when Runescape was brand new.

۞For how long have you played your current games?
I've dumped my old games, and trying out new things. Runes of Magic for a few weeks. I'm slowly getting myself back into my past; Dofus for 1~2 years in total.

۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
The people and community, for sure. Then I go for how different and "fun" I feel the game is to me; does it have a different playstyle, new characters/skills, eye-appealing graphics, or the little intricate nuances that pop up and keep me entertained?

۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
I usually don't talk about it normally, aside from online. Other than sucking up time better used for work/friends and enlightening me in a bit more creativity/insight, not much.

۞What kind of people play what kind of games?
Not to be stereotypical, but I normally see the "Asian" community more prone to western-type games (Trickster, Maplestory, etc), whereas the other gamers prefer the eastern-type games (World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, etc). Though, that's generally speaking. I find myself more inclined towards the eastern-type rather than the western-type, even though I am of Asian descent. Then again, that's MMORPG-speaking. In the end, everyone can agree on MMOFPSs in general.

۞Other stuff you like to add.
I like to cook. :V
Answers in the quote (obviously).
Typed this up 2 in the morning. I probably went off in a typing tangent while answering the questions. Feel free to exclude anything that doesn't make any sense.

۞Why do you play MMO's?
I enjoy RPGs in general- building up a character and progressing through quests and storylines. With MMOs, I can do the above, and get to interact with people from all over the world.
۞How many hours/day do you play?
I'm an undergraduate, so I hardly play during a school semester (maybe just a little on weekends). I play whenever I'm free during vacations.
۞When did you start MMO's?
2003- my first encounter with an MMO was Maplestory, which, admittedly, was pretty fun back then. Followed by Dofus for about 2 years, and then Trickster online for another two years. Recently- Rohan Online for a few months & now Atlantica Online.
۞For how long have you played your current games?
I'm currently playing Atlantica Online. Been playing it since Closed Beta 3, so that makes it about 4months plus now?
۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
I am a fan of turn-based games. Also, it has great graphics, interesting questlines, lots of things to do besides mindlessly hacking away at monsters to gain exp.
۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
I know and understand silly MMO memes/jargon/jokes.
۞What kind of people play what kind of games?
Not too sure about this.
۞Other stuff you like to add.
I'm not a game hopper. I don't like to go on a game, massively grind for a few days, and then up and go for another game. If I find a game that looks appealing, I try to stay committed to it for several weeks at the very minimum and try to experience as many aspects of the game as possible.
You don't have to answer all of the questions if there is any of them that you don't feel like answering or don't know what to answer.

Oh dear god
please don't tell me you guys say orz in real life
I would facepalm then proceed to punch myself in the face if I heard that


۞Why do you play MMO's?
I don't only play mmo's, but I play because I like the idea of building your character day after day as well as meeting other people and helping each other out. I loved RPG's back in the day so it's no wonder.

۞How many hours/day do you play?
Everyday, usually after work/school. The number of hours a day varies alot on how much I feel like playing and the amount of free time I have in the day. I'd say average 5 hours

۞When did you start MMO's?
When I was in high school, first "mmo-ish" game I played is Diablo, yeah it isn't exactly an MMO but it's got very similar traits, trading, partying, grinding, etc..
I was...11-12?

۞For how long have you played your current games?
I play like 5 different games right now, that's hard to say. Since this is on MMO's i'll limit myself to those.
I've been playing 2Moons for like 2 weeks
and trickster on/off for 2 years

۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
2Moons is really fast paced as far as I can see, pvp'ing is active and the whole game is mature, I like that.
Trickster's only to slack off when I don't feel like playing anything really.

۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
I'd be playing console RPG's if mmo's didn't exist and it would be the same, except I wouldn't procrastinate school work as much probably.
MMO's made me devalue time, 5 hours doesn't seem very long to me anymore.

۞What kind of people play what kind of games?(Sinse there are many who don't understand this question, what I mean is Personality, ethnics, etc etc)
Lol stereotypes
Typically, asians play MMO's and RPGs, common teenagers plays sport games/fps/console games, that's all I can think of..

۞Other stuff you like to add.

Why do you play MMO's?
- Just for the hell of it. I like to relax and have a beer or two while playing video games. It's a guy thing. It's what we do. The bonus to MMOs is that you can play with other folks and socialize.
How many hours/day do you play?
-More often than not I play MMOs about 2 hours average a day, some days I go all out and play for hours though.
When did you start MMO's?
- When I was ten I think, so about thirteen years ago. Things were a lot different then, mostly MUDs really.
For how long have you played your current games?
-I tend to jump from game to game, but there are some games I always go back to. For example Grendel's cave is a game I've been playing for at least like ten years. It's a simple browser game but deceptively complex and challenging. That's what gets me, a challenge. More MMOs need to be challenging.

۞Why do you play MMO's?
I get bored so I play.
۞How many hours/day do you play?
Uhhh 0-10 hours. It differs from day to day.
۞When did you start MMO's?
Around 9 or 10.
۞For how long have you played your current games?
A while.
۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?
Because I find them entertaining rather than to watch/be around my parents which ends up with me forced to do something, ie. get a glass of water, go do this, do get this, come here.
۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
Not much, I tend not to mention in to other people.

I actually stumbled upon them while looking for a fighting game to kill school time.

About 2 hours a day

The PVP system is more skill based than stat/job based.

I can make friends with other MMOers
۞What kind of people play what kind of games?(Sinse there are many who don't understand this question, what I mean is Personality, ethnics, etc etc)
I understand, but I'm not really sure your personality would affect your choice. Asians would start with asian games and such.

None.

You don't have to answer all of the questions if there is any of them that you don't feel like answering or don't know what to answer.

Thanks~

The last question was sorta weird U:

۞Why do you play MMO's?

While sometimes I play them to waste time, mostly now I play foreign games to try to expose myself to a certain language's environment. I think it helps with language learning. At least a little.

۞How many hours/day do you play?

Very recently (for the past couple of days) I've had a lot of free time so I've been playing a lot, but normally I play for a few hours in the morning every day.

۞When did you start MMO's?

About 6-8 years ago I played the Ragnarök beta. I liked it, but didn't continue when iRO came out since you had to pay.

۞For how long have you played your current games?

Lunia since about April last year. I don't really play it now though, just go to ktest every now and then.

Talesweaver I started 2 days ago.

۞What makes you keep playing this/these games?

If there is a good community and if I understand how the game works to some degree.

۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?

If it is a grindfest game then I have less time to do other things. When I say other things I mean like playing other games and other things I normally do for fun.

If you mean speech patterns, since I don't play English games I don't get orz and gg in my speech, but I have lost a lot of the Kansaiben (Western dialect) in my Japanese. It is still a little Kansaiben-ish, but it was much more Kansaiben-ish before and now I use standard language a lot more.

۞What kind of people play what kind of games?(Sinse there are many who don't understand this question, what I mean is Personality, ethnics, etc etc)

If you want a sweeping generalization... smart, lazy, East Asian males play MMOs the most.

۞Other stuff you like to add.
Nothing.

2-3 Hours on weekdays. 7+ or none on weekends.

4 years ago with Runescape

1 year of Lunia! Well, I quit for more than half of the year.

Pvp Pvp Pvp until better pvp games like Aion, GW II, Rusty Hearts, or Darkfall comes out.
They are p2p so it sorta limits adults/rich people from spending 200 bucks monthly.

Darkfall contains no levels, but the pvp looks dull..I dont think its gonna be keyboard controlled D:.

GW did a great job of balancing by the low level and armor limit + controlled by keyboard. GwII would be probably be similar except in graphics and combat style.

Aion requires a high end computer, so intense and graphical astonishments can be expected.

Rusty Hearts is just the best looking game I have seen yet! Perhaps they need to lighten the atmoshphere some bit...

۞How does playing MMO's affect your real life?
Less time to study D:
۞What kind of people play what kind of games?(Sinse there are many who don't understand this question, what I mean is Personality, ethnics, etc etc)
I donno D:. I can only understand why people like to pvp. Pure Grinding and few/rare pvp players are a mystery to me.

۞Other stuff you like to add.
Most of Mmo pvp systems fail badly. It relies way too much on levels and equips. Lunia, in these terms, is better than most, but still not enough balance between players of different stats.
