its like that with a lot of MMORPG's... I remember with runescape, back in 2004-6, the community was AMAZING. People were totally willing to chill/chat/ and "quest" together, even if they didn't know the person, or just met them. No one was overtly obsessed with the game, and RL chat was possible. IF you wanted to RP, Runescape's lack of creative borders made it easy to do so and people were always willing to join in on the fun. And yes, there was a version of the people we have today in Trade Chat, but to a bare minimum. In fact, most of the people hanging around the town square were usually being chill, emote dancing, talking as a group, starting massive trains going around the city, or even traveling to many different areas with people jumping on and off. (one player follows another. It's funny, I thought that would be something I'd see in WoW, but I never did. I guess WASD running was so awesome upon discovery, they spontaneously forgot about "the train"). Nowadays, you have freaks that constantly taunt you about not leveling up your knitting skill or w/e (haven't been to the game in maybe 3-4 years now, and even then, I only went to see how things were going). and the worst part was, THEY HAD A WHOLE GROUP OF LIKEMINDED PEOPLE WHO TAUNTED YOU TOO!! Suffice to say, gameplay wise, and graphics, the game didn't make up for the douches that now played... so I quit. Without a backward glance.
