Everquest: "/played"
Posted: Monday November 5th, 2012 by

The Kiddo asked to play World of Warcraft yesterday (not the first time). So we loaded up his character and let him run free. He somehow managed, at level 2, to make his way to Ratchet and hop the boat to Booty Bay. He got out and ran around, but ultimately, got back on the boat and made it his home for at least an hour.

You remember that sense of wonder? That first MMO world that felt far bigger than you could ever imagine? Over time it all shrinks or, at least, seems to. Everything irises in, narrowing our focus. We zip from place to place never inching our way into those nooks and crannies we actively sought out when we started.

I do still explore. But not like I used to. I allow myself to sink into the relative sameness of day-to-day MMO activity. Sometimes I wonder if there will ever be a game that speaks to me the way Everquest did back in the day. How about you guys?
