Does nostalgia impact your gameplay?

Post by TheHidden01 on Wed Nov 26, 2014 2:34 pm


The MMO industry has been kicking around long enough now that we have ample opportunity to opine about the "good old days" (March 22nd through the 26th, 2003) and get nostalgic about practically everything.

We've got MMO sequels that reference their ancestors. We've got MMOs that have several Easter eggs pointing to their single-player title origins. We've got game designs that are coming back into style after being left out in the cold for many years. We have MMOs that use every marketing trick in the book to get old veterans to come on back for another romp. And we have a plethora of crowdfunded games that rely on plucking that nostalgic nerve to get you to open your wallet.

So in the MMO genre, does nostalgia impact your gameplay at all? If so, how?

For me to a degree yes. Don't get me wrong, above all things I want some new, fresh, and vibrant, but I think on a community and the idea of a "world", and not just lobby, I do long for a better time.

Nowadays there are more fucking gimps than ever, and games are just completely instanced.
