2nd December 2018: Galactic Farewells
So all right, this entry is not really about finishing a game, as this is a game that can not really be finished. But I've allowed myself to do this as I have finished something within a game. And the something I have finished has taken hours.
This last month or so I've had a big run on The Old Republic again after not really touching it since back in July. This run ended yesterday when I finally finished the class storyline for Kreethen, my Jedi Consular.
And boy, I'm glad it's over.
As MMORPGs go, I think this is arguably the one I would pick to play again if I absolutely had to. I think the way it tells its story content, with the choices and fully voiced dialogue, just made me more interested to see what was going to happen next, compared to other such games like WOW where you just get a wall of text that few people actually read.
That being said, the game is still a very typical MMORPG, filled with dull as fuck loot quests, kill quests, and endless travelling back and forth. Actually getting to the end of one character's story has been quite the miracle, and there are seven other characters to choose from, as well as all the expansion content.
But yeah, I'm going to happily forget all that stuff even exists.
To be fair, a few times I did actually think whether I should subscribe and get the expansions, but in the end I think I've had enough of this type of game to last me the next few years. I did however at one point put a little money into the game just so that I could hide what Kreethen was wearing on his head, as the helmet designs were getting more and more ridiculous as I went through the game.
But for now, and probably for ever, this game is done, and has now been uninstalled.
