Sometimes playing MMO games can feel like work. You log in, complete tasks (quests), get your rewards and keep on doing that again and again. It’s called the daily grind and it is getting me down.
Ideally, role-playing in a game should be more like this:
Just as being away on a trip to a far-off island can refresh one’s perspective on daily life, one can achieve the same effect and benefits by immersing oneself in the fantastic worlds of free MMORPG. There are whole worlds to choose from and many stories to pursue, and certainly many characters to be. (Source)
But most of the time, it isn’t. Most of the time it’s just grinding, farming, trying to level up your character so it doesn’t suck.
So what do I do when MMOs make me depressed and bored? Don’t laugh but I actually play games like Club Penguin. You know, casual, colorful games that make me smile. I love those colorful Penguins. 🙂
