I recently cancelled my subscriptions to World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic. I was never much of a hardcore MMORPG player, but I did enjoy the exploration and story-based elements of these games. It was a pleasant way to while away a weekend afternoon. Over time, though, playing these games felt more like tedium than entertainment. Weeks or months could go by between log-ins. I eventually realized that it didn’t make sense to pay a monthly fee for games I play only sporadically.
It’s not as if I have a shortage of other games to occupy me. But I’m more inclined to play games that can be picked up and put down easily, like FTL and Dungeons of Dreadmor. I seem to be getting more impatient in my old age.
