"I've been a PC gamer since before 'Massively Multiplayer' was anything other than two words that sound a bit silly together. Yet ever since their inception, I've never played an MMO. It can be put down to a number of reasons: a fear of being sucked in, an aversion to games without a fixed ending, impenetrable-sounding game mechanics or just me being unsociable. Because of this, WoW, Eve, Guild Wars et al have all passed me by. MMOs are something other people do, a curiosity hovering in the periphery of my gaming vision."
