Sixth Thought - Just For the End-Game?

   I always hear about the end-game in MMORPGs, mostly from people I talk to in-game. Usually, the sentiment is something similar to "why did I bother doing all this work if the end-game sucks?"

   Why did you bother playing the game at all if all you wanted to see was the end-game?

   Don't get me wrong, I understand why the end-game is so special. For a lot of MMOs, it can be up to half the game or more. You get to the max level and it practically opens up a whole new world filled with endless guilds, quests, friends and possibilities. I just don't understand why people will act like that's the entire game. You spent hours, days, weeks, possibly even months farming and leveling up only to get to the end and say "well that was disappointing". Did you not enjoy the road?
