So, I am sure to be flamed from certain circles for this, but I just really don’t care about WildStar. Like oh me gosh! How can this BE? I am just not a fan. After keeping up on it through Massively.com and playing through the beta some, the game just has no allure for me. And that’s just fine. This is where I like to remind people “To each his own!”
You see, there is absolutely no reason that every game should cater to every person. Heck, one game should not even cater to every person! There are those that think WildStar is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Good for them! It just does not appeal to me. I don’t like the graphics (the colors drive me crazy), I do not like the combat, and I do not find the quests compelling. As far as I know, the only thing I actively dislike is the stupid voice that treats you like you are three years old whenever you level. That seriously, seriously annoys me. it bothers me almost as much as do people who continue to rip on others and put them down for liking something different. (Guess what? It’s really a good, good thing that we aren’t all like you Mr. InsultyPants.)
When it comes down to it, there are just other games out there that tickle my gaming bone much better. They appeal to things that interest me (I am screaming Tokyo and The Secret World here as loud as I can). And if you know me already, you know that I am not your typical personality. So, taking into account people are different, it makes sense they like different things, no? And that’s good! Ultimately that means that more gaming devs will make a living off of their products because we aren’t all identical lemmings leaping off the same launch cliff.
Now, having said all that, I am going to play the game a bit. For one, friends and viewers — you guys — are there. So I’ll hang out with you a bit before you all out-level me and move on to the stuff of endgame. Two, as a certified (certifiable?) housing enthusiast/nut, I owe it to myself to experience the system in WildStar. There are some unique things that need to be checked out. As such, I will be slowly making my way up that leveling ladder to the ripe old rung of 14. I know, sounds like it isn’t a big deal to any, but when you don’t really enjoy playing much it is difficult! Once I get the abode, I’ll invite you all over for my housewarming farewell party.
