The value of virtual rewards
What would you rather have? A raid in which after much struggle you kill the boss, but he doesn't drop any loot? Or the loot without having to kill the boss?
Via Bio Break I stumbled upon The Babbling Gamer, a relatively new blog, where Warsyde is pondering this question of the value of virtual rewards vs. the experience of playing the game. I can only agree with his conclusion that the pixel rewards lost a lot of their attraction over time, and that I'd rather play for the entertainment experience.
