The Daily Grind: What’s your self-proclaimed dumbest reason not to play an MMO?

No profits.

There are many super valid reasons not to play an MMO. It’s an open PvP game and you don’t like that for example. You don’t have time for another game and all your friends are playing something else. Monetization is predatory. You don’t care about the IP. The gameplay loop is not what you think is fun.

There are also plenty of reasons not to play an MMO that you know is actually pretty horrible, but you’re into it anyway. They don’t like click-to-move. You cannot spam jumps because the game has no jumps. The character models look weird to you. you have the idea You know it’s a game you’d probably like, but your reasons for not playing are mostly because you know they’re not good reasons.

Let’s be clear here: Stupid reasons are still reasons, and as long as you don’t try to amend stupid reasons to actually be good reasons, they’re still perfectly valid. But you can also have a sense of humor if you have silly reasons. So what’s your self-admitted dumbest reason not to play an MMO? Your reason, which has nothing to do with business models or gameplay loops, just weird personal preferences like graphic styles or sound design, or even a dislike of the font?
