So, what game did you come from?
|Age of Conan:||1 (1.0%)|
|EVE Online:||3 (3.0%)|
|World of Warcraft:||57 (57.0%)|
|Final Fantasy:||18 (18.0%)|
|Warhammer Online:||4 (4.0%)|
|Lord of the Rings Online:||0 (0.0%)|
|Other MMO:||2 (2.0%)|
|Rift is my first MMO:||1 (1.0%)|
Notice that I didn't put any numbers after Final Fantasy and EverQuest. That's mainly because I'm lazy and can't be ***** adding a million EverQuest to the list, but also because I just want to know what "part" of the gaming community you're from, not which exact game.
Now, some of you probably played more than one of the above, or maybe you're stilling playing something other than Rift. What you should select is the game you've spent the most time playing recently other than Rift. If you're still playing World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy and think you're not eligible to participate in this survey, think again. If you're still playing, say, EverQuest II while also checking out Rift, set your mark at EverQuest.
Also, forgive me if I forgot other notable MMO games, like Star Wars Galaxies or something. I'm allowed to poke fun of that game. I used to play it. That's how I discovered Allakhazam in the first place.
Anyway, let me know if you want some other game added to the poll. I've honestly lost track of how many games there are nowadays, so I just added the ones that I knew of. And feel free to post your gaming history as well, if you so desire. Always nice with a personal touch to the statistics. Maybe a bit about what you've played before, your opinion on the games and what attracted you to Rift.
Just refrain from the whole mud-flinging thing, please.
Above line is meant to indicate that I'm starting a new topic, or rather, a new part of the post. I didn't feel like making a double-post.
I came/come from World of Warcraft and have been an avid follower for many years. I've also fooled around with Warhammer and Lord of the Rings on the side (wonder if I ever canceled that subscription?), but found too many flaws in those games to commit to a long-term relationship. I guess you could say that Warcraft is my true love. My soul-mate. My cherry to my ice cream.
Oh, right, I came from World of Warcraft and hadn't really heard about Rift until people started talking about it a couple of weeks ago. Said it was going to be yet another "WoW killer" game. Didn't really pay much attention to it. Then I got bored real bad with World of Warcraft and decided to check out some YouTube videos on Rift.
To make a long story less long, I liked the concept and decided to get the pre-order from Steam so I could play instantly.
So far, I'm really liking the game. I recognize a lot of Warhammer Online in it, perhaps more than World of Warcraft, but none of the clunkiness I experienced in that game. The Rift events are awesome and allows for something to spend your time on if you get bored of questing. The music, graphics and sounds are just amazing. I love the underwater sound and visual effects (we had a discussion about it in the public Silverwood chat earlier), the fluidity of the combat animations (and again, the sounds... omg, the sounds!) and the music in general.
The only thing that's been keeping me down is recent issues with connecting to the game. It seems to be an ISP or local issue, but I managed to solve it, so it's no biggie.
Anyway, that's it. Go Rift! Fill out the poll thing and help saturate my curiosity.
Oh, should probably add that this isn't a survey or anything. I'm not doing a paper on how MMO games are the devil and will rot the minds of your kids. I'm just curious.
Well, more like drunk, but who's counting beers? I'm not!
