The Siren Song of the MMO

4Player-"After the last bout with Rift I swore I had grown out of the MMO phase. The samey environments, the tedious bland grind sandwich. The contrived and highly repetitive quest equation: Kill x number of monster y for lazy asshole z. The only part of the experience that was fun was playing with other people, but after all our friends had left the social interactions felt hollow and token like a high school teenager’s facebook page. I swore I would never fall for those luscious siren notes again and in its place I would catch up on my reading, learn to play the cello, and maybe even see the world." (PC, World of Warcraft)
