I don't know if I'd call myself a gamer. I do enjoy playing the occasional video game. I'll buy games every so often if I've beaten an older game, but usually buy my games used, spending no more than 15 bucks a game). So though I might spend some time (all right I admit, if I find a game I like some time might turn into five hours straight) every so often playing a video game I don't do the whole MMORPG (second and third definitions down are the best) thing.
MMORPG's don't thrill me. I don't generally like talking with strangers on the internet (and I definitely don't like strangers in real life, let alone the internet), I don't like games that continue when I'm not playing, and I don't like playing video games with no definitive ending. I need to beat a game to make it feel like it was worthwhile and that my money was well spent. I play for that pseudo sense of accomplishment. MMORPG's just go on for ever and ever. Not my thing. Not a big enough dork to get into the whole role playing aspect of it. Well maybe I am a big enough dork, but a completely different type of dork.
What type of dork am I? I'm the type that even though I'm not really interested in MMORPG's I'm probably going to sign up and play this:
Behind the Scenes/Making of DC Universe Online
Because who in their right mind wouldn't want to be able to play in an open ended DC comic book universe.
Like I said, I'm a sucker.
