Why I hate Dragon Nest and all RPG in general


Dragon Nest Online

I just started on Dragon Nest 2 days ago. Obviously cause I was bored. Still, there could be better things to do. I suddenly felt like playing RPG(role playing game) because I saw Diablo 3 Beta, and decided, let’s just give RPG a go again.

Bad choice.

In just 2 days, I got pretty bored of it. Not to the point where I won’t want to play it. (cause I’m trying to hit the max level)

First, I’ll say why I hate Dragon Nest.

The graphics is good, the plot is decent. But what the fuck is wrong with the voice acting?! COME ON, anyone would agree that the voice acting for all the cut scenes suck. It’s like, watching a third-rate theatre. AND the subtitles are all out of sync.

Then the gameplay. It’s frustrating how they make you do the same stage over and over and over again. Just so that you can complete your quest. The items description isn’t really helpful for someone like me. (but thanks to weeks of IrisOnline I could barely get by).

The most important part is the travelling. I think improvements are due for future patches but it sucks right now, to only be able to run and.. well run. You don’t have any skills that speed your movements or mounts for faster travelling.

I shall list down all the [Massive Multiplayer Online](MMO)RPG games I’ve played.

And a couple others that I really can’t be bothered to find the logo for, like Rose Online, Ragnarok, 9Dragons,Atlantica Online and so on.

So, it’s not like I’ve never given RPG games a chance. It just… boring okay? You repeat the same tasks for, hours, days, months. Just to gain level and items. You can the sense of achievement from all these stuffs. But it’s like, there’s no skill involved. It’s just whoever who has the longest patience.

I hate games like that because you HAVE to invest a huge amount of time in it in order to be good at it. That’s why I love RTS(real time strategy), FPS(first person shooter) games. There’s no level involved. You just play with your skills per game. You either pwn or get owned. (the reason I hate DoTA is probably cause it takes too long and I hate controlling only 1 character)

All that said, I am currently playing Dragon Nest, so well, find me online if you’re in it too.

Why I chose that name: There’s a multi-dimensional witch in xxxHolic & Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle (same person). Her name is Yuko. But since someone took that name, I used a cute suffix to make it unique.
