Quest or real life?

Go to Location A, hand in item 1, earn money

Go to Location B, pick up items 2 and 3

Go to Location C, drop off items 4, 5, and 6

Go to Location D, hand in a note

Go to Location E, buy a bunch of stuff

Return to Location D, pick up item 7

Return to Location C, pick up modified items 4, 5 and 6

Go home.

I’m not sure whether to be amused or appalled that my real life so exactly mirrors my characters’…

  1. What’s worse? We don’t even really get to kill anything in RL quests. Well…except for rats…which…again…heh…yeah…I’ll shut up now.

  2. You know, people complain a lot about how unrealistic MMOs are, but quests are actually one of the more realistic bits šŸ˜‰

    1. Very true. When I was younger, I wanted realism out of my MMOs. Now, that doesn’t matter as much to me as having a solid game.

  3. Is it odd that you have to pay $15 a month to experience in a game what you can in real life for free? Love your post!

  4. There’s also the reputation gains from said quests. I’d say that’s more important than the quest rewards sometimes.

  5. Well, in an MMO if you do something BEFORE being told to do it, it doesn’t count.
    So questing in real life is definitely better.
    For example, the other day, I changed the laundry WITHOUT my wife, the quest giver, even having to tell me. And I was still rewarded with reputation gains!
    MMOs don’t do that and that is why they suck.
