Moments That Make You Go Woah #MMO #MMORPG
When a game really clicks with me I can count on a specific moment or two when I (literally) take a second and think to myself ‘Woah. THAT is cool!’ Thankfully even with years of games behind me and more game selections than I can shake a stick at, I still have these moments. The majority of the time it’s when I encounter something that is larger than myself. Pictured above: Toxxulia flying around Sundered Frontier in EverQuest 2. When a raid is working on her she has two seperate scripts, one for easy mode and one for hard mode. One of them causes her to fly off around Sundered Frontier and players will often see her (as well as see the emotes). Dragons always seem to elicit those “ohhhh” moments from me in pretty much every game.
In Rift I had that feeling during my first invasion. I mean rifts were neat but they happen so frequently and you can defeat them with a handful of players if there are not more around. Invasions on the other hand, invasions can progress to a massive point and the bosses of these encounters are often times (literally) larger than life. As you and a group of 50 other players try to take on stone giants and other fabled creatures it really gives you a sense of wonder. EQ1 raids also gave me ‘chills’ – back before the days of 24 and 12 person limits.

Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
