I’m Flip-Flopping on Star Wars: The Old Republic

“My biggest problem now with Star Wars: The Old Republic is that I recently switched my home computer to a Mac,” says Stephen Totilo from Kotaku.

This is in the intro to his story of why he’s flip-flopping on SWTOR. All he needed to change his mind about TOR was to play it again for a second time. He says it was like playing a completely different game. He says his first experience was impaired by high expectations and that he is not usually a MMORPG player as getting enchanted with the one MMO can limit you from playing other games.

He says, “I tried World of Warcraft for a weekend in 2007, had some fun, but ran away to save my time for real-life activities like playing video games that last less than infinite hours.”

He had a chance to try the game again, at NYCC it seems, and has some newly formed opinions about the game itself. It seems he likes the game for the RPG potential of it. He won’t be the first person who has said the MMORPG has the capacity to be much like a single-player RPG.

It’s more than 1,000 words of information about why this writer changed his opinion on SWTOR. So what do you think?
