Age of Conan Performance? - Page 8

post #71 of 85
I've just have to comment here. This game makes me soooo angry. I'm an enormous Robert E. Howard fan and read all the books when I was a kid (many, many times). The prospect of playing a game in the fictional world of one of my all-time-favorite characters is awesome.

My problem is that I have pledged to never pay a monthly subscription for a game (again). The last montly I paid into was EQ2 (when it first came out) and after really considering what I was getting for my $$$, I just decided it wasn't worth it.

The fees these developers charge (especially when you add in the initail purchase of the game) are just too much. The way they make us feel ok about it is that $15 doesn't seem like that much money to most of us (this is because marketeers have conditioned us to asses affordability by the item's monthly payment) but when you add the total cost for the game...well, you do the math.

As a final note, I am not bad-mouthing this game (I would actually like to try it out); nor am I attacking anyone for their decision to play or not but simply saying that I am disgusted with the greed involved with most mmo's.

I personally think $15 / month for a MMO is VERY cheap .

The correct way of accessing value is the opportunity cost. People usually get immersed into MMORPG games and can spend 100 hours a month on it without knowing.

What can you buy with $15 in today's market? 1.5 Hours of movie with some popcorn without softdrink. coke cost you EXTRA! or 4 gallons of gas which won't last more than a week. Most entrees in a decent restaurant will cost you more than $15.

Now, if $15 for a full month of entertainment is not considered cheap, I don't know what is...

Absolutely true. I had this conversation with a friend of mine the other day. If I find an MMO that truly makes me happy I feel absolutely no guilt for paying the $15/month.

I don't consider it cheap at all, considering that you can get a game such as Guild War's or CSS and easily spend hundreds of hours on them along with free daily content updates. 12*15 = $180 + game = $230 for one year on one game......

Interesting point...I never thought about that. Isn't the monthly cost primarily for server upkeep though?

They seem to be fixing those bugs for the official release date. So this game should be much better than the open beta build.
me too, the box looks like a massive book eh, lol

Exactly. Many of us have said that the cost of games is inflated as it is, mmo's take it to the next level.

EDIT: I do really want to play this one though; just don't know if I could bring myself to do it.

Also, what about kids (or adults) that don't have the extra money for a monthly payment.
