While jumping around threads and playing around in many MMOs, you start to notice a trend in MMOs about "End-Game" content. Apparently, some people starting to focus solely on reaching max level to get to said "end-game" content. Some even feel burnt out or disappointed in some MMOs due to lack of. However, said people are approaching some MMOs wrong. Not all MMOs are about reaching max level.
Seems that most starting to forget that it is about having fun, not reaching max level. Thou I understand that due to some massive success in some games (Mostly WoW), reaching max level is getting the focus of developers. WoW didn't really start that way even, but now it became streamed as such. People just compete on reaching max level so they can raid.
What made me remember said mentality is that I was in TESO and someone mentioned something like that (Was there cause Main theme is awesome...). As I remember in my journey. Someone was telling me that I should watch some youtubers and read to get the best path for leveling. To reach max level fast, because that is when the game really start. That is where the end-game content starts as he called.
Now, content is there all over the place; Yet we (and I don't mean all) don't take time to appreciate it. TSW and ESO is some games that the journey starts when you start playing not when you reach max level. GW2 was the same but I am not sure how it is now. I remember ArenaNet saying something about people getting confused about leveling. Content shouldn't be tied to leveling mostly, but distributed all over the place whether you want to focus on PvP or PvE. You can still group in said games, and do content. So it is not like the main focus on these games are solo or something.
So what do you think about content in MMOs? Does the mentality of people changed too much that it became like that? Are we different type of gamers that Max level is that important that developers should focus on that kind of content? Have some games that tried different approach to MMOs? Share your thoughts.
