whats the story?

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about quests, I'll do a quest so I can say I've done it, get the possibly good rewards and wear my quest cape.

 

 

 

I don't really care what the story line is about, I'll frantically click through text boxes to finish the quest quicker, I don't read it at all, It doesn't bother me.

 

 

 

I don't speculate into what is going to happen next, or for that matter, what has just happened, I simply follow the guide, kill some monsters, teleport around, do what I'm told to do, and claim my reward.

 

 

 

what about you,

 

are you bothered about the storyline, do you follow in depth?

 

 

 

or, like me, the faster you finish the better?

The storyline is a big part of the quest, you're kinda stupid if you don't care about it, honestly.

please, do explain why I'm now classified as stupid because I don't care about a silly made up storyline in a game?

I read the story as long as the NPC makes it short. Sometimes the story gives out info on what to do next, if of course the quest has just been released on the same day.


No longer playing Runescape, I caught the WoW bug.

I've never read through a story-line, I just rush through the quest so I can get back to my skilling.

Quests, stories and histories ARE what make an MMORPG

 

 

 

If you rush through things and pay no attention to the story you miss all the atmosphere and fun of the game. Also it kinda implies ur a huge pixel hugger as u care more about xp and rewards than immersing yourself in the game

I usually read it all, but if the npc seems like (s)he's going to babble on forever I rush through it. I can't help myself. :(

I never read it, I hate quests, they are too hard and not any fun at all. I have to agree with you :x

 

 

 

The only quest I ever had fun on was Underground Pass.

Because its like a reading The Lord of The Rings (on a smaller scale) and skipping forward to the fighty bits. You lose depth and entertainment. Some may see that as silly.

In most games, I find them entertaining, in RUnescape, the way it's done, makes it boring, lame and frustrating. Especially when they talk and it takes them 2 minutes to say 20 words.

I like to know the story. I used a guide for a majority of the free quest and realized it wasn't half as fun. I usually read the beginning of a guide to find out what materials I will need. Having all necessary items saves tons of time. Other than that i try to do them on my own. If i get really stuck i cheat and read a lil bit of the guide. I swear some quest would be impossible without a guide. O, and I never look at the reward. Sometimes its a nice surprise.

I've been on both sides of that fence.. before, I would simply follow the guide blindly, clicking through the chat as fast as I could. But lately, I've been cutting my guide-usage down to a minimum. I look at it to get the items that I'll need, simply because I hate getting somewhere hard-to-get and having to turn around because I left a tinderbox or something.. -.- Afterwards, I try to do the whole quest without the guide; however, if I get stuck, I'll pop it up to figure out that part and close it afterwards. It adds that sense of depth and immersion that Paw was talking about.

I always read the text, because it just makes the quest into an acual adventure. Often on a good quest, I can get completely immersed in the story, and it seems quite epic to me. Not to mention it makes completing the quest much more fulfulling, and you feel like your really part of the story.

 

 

 

 

Yes, me too. :-k

Obviously it's a matter of opinion, but personally I think I get much more enjoyment out of reading the dialogue. The quest just seems boring to me when I don't know what's going on. :)

I can't say I approve of him calling you stupid but when you take a look around you, just about everything in the world is/was made by someone else. I'm not sure how stories in a MMORPG class differently.
