After an excruciatingly long download of “Maple Story,” I excitedly booted it up, made my cute character, and happily sliced away at snails. But five minutes in, I got bored. Perhaps it’s my lack of game savviness. Perhaps it’s my complte lack of an attention span. It’s probably because I didn’t have the patience to get to the community aspect of the game. Whatever it is, I did not have a great time playing it.
I can’t imagine leveling up my character for no reason. If anyone has any good things to say about Maple Story (or any other free MMO game), please leave a comment. I feel like I’m missing the point of these games.
