As I read Blapril posts, I’ve been seeing a fair bit of EVE Online popping up, specifically from Mailvatar and The Ancient Gaming Noob. Seeing these posts have been making me feel nostalgic to going back.
So much has changed since about 2012, not only in the game, but in my life. I’ve lost touch with pretty much all of the folks that made the game worth playing, whether through my divorce, them passing, or just also moving on to other games. I was in a Wormhole/Mining corp for the majority of my play time in EVE, and I don’t know that I would feel comfortable putzing about low-sec/null-sec on my own. Plus I just don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to the game. While most of the things I remember can be done offline, there’s just a lot of waiting around done in the game. And playing it solo isn’t really something I’d be interested in.
EVE Online was the only game I played for quite a while, and while I’ve fond memories, I just don’t see myself ever picking it up again.
