First off — Happy New Year’s, guys and gals! This blog started back in October and I appreciate the small (but loyal) following. 2011 will bring our return to the game and for a few months we will relapse to our days of EQOA addiction.
In the Author section for this blog, I talk about how I don’t really play video games as much as I watch other people play. One part of that is scenery that RPG’s provide. I think it’s really cool to see what game designers come up with. Thus, my favorite part of the game was the area between Qeynos and Forkwatch. Why? Sunny, grassy, and of course the muddy gnoll paws.
Though this can go too far. I remember I was on the western coast of the mainland, just north of Qeynos. Some other player was out there too, he told me to follow him. I should have known it was going to get weird. My mother always told me to avoid taking candy from strangers and going with them, but thankfully there are no sketch white vans in EQOA.
Anyway, we swam out to this small fishing boat. He told me to look out at the ocean, to where the sun was setting. That’s when he crossed the line:
Randomplayer: I love to come out here and watch the sun set.
I immediately reached forward, powered off my PS2, and went outside.
