    Default Why is PVE fun?

    *Note: this is for PVE in general, not RIFT-specific

    I dont get how people can have fun in PVE. You sit in a dungeon with some elitist jerks on Vent. and look up how to do the fight and/or have an addon tell you when to do what.

    1.) Tank attacks first
    2.) every1 hits boss
    3.) *** cheeks turn red
    4.) move to the corner until they stop glowing
    5.) hit boss again

    repeat for countless hours and hope you get loot... wow.. fun.


    Is it fun because its programmed to let you win if you have good enough gear? And feeling like a winning is awesome?

    Inb4 "its skill to learn the fights" no, its not since an addon tells you what to do and it all consists of moving and whacking an over-sized mob with some voice files for hours.

    There are no addons in Rift.

    What now?

    It's fun because I'm PVP flagged at work and I get tired of the verbal ganking. CS needs a buff.

    FFXI was a perfect example of why pve was fun but too bad developers are too into getting millions than making hard content that actually keeps people now =/. if you've never taken a look at ffxi i would suggest it to see why.

    Trying to nit pick details about why some aspects of the game are fun, and others are not, is an endless conversation.


    Some folks enjoy PvE.


    Some don't.


    No explanation is going to satisfy your disgust with PvE.


    Be assured however, that the circumstances in PvP are just as irritating to many PvE players.

    The same question, and examples could be presented for PvP.

    Why is masturbation fun.
    You've beat it plenty of times before.
    But for some reason, you just want to beat it again, and again.

    Because some people may not enjoy the same things you do.

    Anyone forcing you to play with addons telling you what and when to do it?

    Learning fights IS fun. But yes I agree after killing same scripted boss for the 100th time it's not so much fun. But that is were new content comes into play. Unless you read walkthoughs and blast though them.

    I'm sure I'll get a warning for this, but oh well.

    Having addons is the biggest premise of your post yet you post this crap on the forums of a game with no addons,

    Learn to think before posting next time.

    ps there is no need to defend what someone enjoys. Why you think someone should is beyond me.

    Why is watching TV fun?

    Some people just want something to shut down to for a few hours after are hard days at work, or something to distract them from their problems.

    To each their own!

    You just described all raiding.

    You described PVP as well, except for PVP you don't have those 5 numbered steps, but you have the rest of your post.

    So the point of your question is what, exactly?
