    What keeps you playing? How long have you played?

    I'm finding it pretty boring unless I'm getting murdered nowadays.. (yes, GETTING murdered, I couldn't murder someone if I tried)

    I have been playing technically for 12 years, but have taken about 3 years off all-together...

    Played from 99-01; just started back last October.

    My favorite aspect is template dynamism: I love trying new skills/toons. I think I like building/adjusting toons more than I like playing them, in fact. Very fun.

    Since late 98 with little one to two month breaks here and there(maybe 1 year total off time)

    Syrus hit on one of my UO vices: making templates. Not sure why but I like tweaking templates and seeing what kind of screwed up ideas I can come up with:thumbsup:

    I also like hanging around with the honest, honorable, and less drama involved people I've met in game. Sadly, those seem to be drying up fast.

    That has got to be the saddest thing I have ever heard... Like really sad.

    Not in a pathetic way but a puppy dog, old person way.

    before you guys get this thread locked..

    I don't know why i play uo.. I've played since i was like 15. (thats over a decade) on and off.. What keeps me coming back is a strange feeling the game only gives me when im NOT playing it. I love nostalgia. I love the feeling you have when you've had those dreams about flying all night and then you wake up. I love how an old episode of Thundercats makes me feel. I love playing with legos. I love gasoline-rainbows in the puddles. I love bike ride. Especially motor-bike ride. I love the way it smells when it rains. I love starbust, and orange julius. I love helping my nephews make toy guns, and then wtf powning them with my invis-bullets.
    I love the smell of spent 12guage shells.

    I love this game for these same reasons. I love the stupid trees. I love the stupid paperdoll. I love killing helpless miners and things. I love just walking around looking for things.. anythings.. I love all things that remind me of my youth.

    Tom waits nailed it on the head:

    When Im lyin in my bed at night
    I dont wanna grow up
    Nothin ever seems to turn out right
    I dont wanna grow up
    How do you move in a world of fog
    Thats always changing things
    Makes me wish that I could be a dog
    When I see the price that you pay
    I dont wanna grow up
    I dont ever wanna be that way
    I dont wanna grow up

    Seems like folks turn into things
    That theyd never want
    The only thing to live for
    Is today...
    Im gonna put a hole in my tv set
    I dont wanna grow up
    Open up the medicine chest
    And I dont wanna grow up
    I dont wanna have to shout it out
    I dont want my hair to fall out
    I dont wanna be filled with doubt
    I dont wanna be a good boy scout
    I dont wanna have to learn to count
    I dont wanna have the biggest amount
    I dont wanna grow up

    Well when I see my parents fight
    I dont wanna grow up
    They all go out and drinking all night
    And I dont wanna grow up
    Id rather stay here in my room
    Nothin out there but sad and gloom
    I dont wanna live in a big old tomb
    On grand street

    When I see the 5 oclock news
    I dont wanna grow up
    Comb their hair and shine their shoes
    I dont wanna grow up
    Stay around in my old hometown
    I dont wanna put no money down
    I dont wanna get me a big old loan
    Work them fingers to the bone
    I dont wanna float a broom
    Fall in love and get married then boom
    How the hell did I get here so soon
    I dont wanna grow up

    that should sum it up.. Thats why my wife has no problem with me playing.

    edit: thats also why we left M to start supr.. They stripped us of our nostalgia, and they still don't get it. we pay our ****ing accts too... its our reality to **** with too.

    Good redirect back to the OP. Lets keep it to the OP. Anything other than that, start a new thread before we go off on another tangent again. hmm?
     
  13. it is the idiots that keep me playing, its very gratifying to kill them repeatedly and RK them and RK them and make them fearful of every step they take in fel.
