We were on a break!

Dear MMO,

I’m sure you’ve known for a long time that my attention wasn’t entirely on you. I’ve been distracted. Missed dates. Forgotten our anniversary. Been distant or even absent entirely.

It’s not you, it’s me.

Well, it’s them too. All those other shiny new — or not so new but with a gfx-sixpack-injection MMOs — they’re hard to ignore. They shake their payment models and item stores at you. They claim they’ll still respect you in the morning.

And those other ones! The ones that aren’t even old enough to be out yet. Jailbait, I know, but who can resist those learning curves?

Our relationship has felt just a little stale lately — and don’t tell me you didn’t feel it too. We never do anything new or fun anymore. Sometimes I think you take me for granted and assume I’ll support you month after month and never care that you still have that twitch in your cheek even five years after we met. You said you’d have that fixed years ago.

So, yeah, I think it would be best if we went on a break. Just to play the field take a step back and consider what we really want from each other, you know?

Let’s stay friends, okay?

EDIT — ahem. I’m not stopping my MMO play; I should have been more clear. Instead, I’ve decided that MMOnogamy isn’t essential and if I want to check out that hot looking MMO over there at the bar, I’ll do just that. And I won’t even feel bad about it!

One day there will be a Secret World beta and I shall be in it.
