So we all know I play flight rising a LOT. The issue is, Im running out of stuff to do on it. I find myself refreshing the front page or whatever most of the day waiting for something to happen. Its not that im losing interest in it I just don’t currently have any goals. I’m sitting on more than…
A word on petsites! Neopets: Have you ever wanted to be trapped in 2005 with no hopes of escape? That’s what neopets feels like to me. Nothing has changed since I left. Even forum layouts are the exact same. The only thing they did change was the art so they could make money on selling clothing for pets. They just had a server move and removed a farming game called the habitarium that was a great way to make money and the only charming addition to the site since 05. The rules and regulations are suffocating. Now. If you can live with this. There are so pluses.
The economy is fairly unbroken (I come from Gaia where we buy things in the trillion these days sooooo) and you can make money but not so fast that you feel like its too easy. The art community is great from what I’ve seen on tumblr. There is a nostalgic value for returning players. There is a lot to do. The site is old and big and a bit confusing sometimes but maybe you’d find that fun.
I don’t count it as a pet site but Gaia is my habitat of choice for all things rp. If that doesn’t interest you, they do have games and the like. Houses, cars, fish tanks. I don’t use any of these features but if it interests you then by all means indulge. Like I said before: the economy is smashed. Knowing established players will cure you looking like a noob but it can be discouraging nonetheless. It is a free for all. You can say and do what you want. My god its the wild west now that I think about it. I prefer this to neopets however.
I’m not the best person to ask but this is my thoughts on the subject.
