I never knew there was a scene for the whole God Speed!-esque music. It feels like I have been reborn.
So yes, I cancelled my WoW account. I have 2 weeks of play left, but being that I haven't played for almost 2 weeks, it's probably not going to get used up. The sad thing is that I'd still be playing if Blizzard hadn't made it so shit-boring in the level 40-50 range. It's a critical time, I think - you have your mount and are getting good gear, but if the quests and areas are shit, you stop playing... well I did, plenty of others just go through it. Perhaps I'm just not 'hardcore' enough. I'm looking at EVE online during it's trial period - can honestly say that it's gorgeous, but it doesn't have me hooked. Perhaps the post-WoW hangover is making me less eager to play MMO games.
The amusing thing about playing games now is that I've realised there's LITTLE point in me trying to make them - quite simply I know that I'll never reach anything like the depth or quality of the commericial offerings, and I'm not imaginative enough to make anything 'original' that others will play. I'll probably still try stuff again at some point, but it's rather sobering knowing that nobody else gives a shit about your work. I guess we do it for ourselves these days, or at least I do. I'm not as talented/dedicated as half the people in these journals working on games.
