I like, when you can get high end level gear, in the beginning, if you know the game. And you can level up very quickly.
Couldn't think of a better way to demonstrate how differently people approach these games. Here's a metagamer whose intention is powergaming, plain and simple. I couldn't think of a more displeasing way to play -- if the intention is to be as powerful as possible, why not simply rig stuff in your favor? And if the intention is to metagame, why play at all? I mean, you've already ruined all the surprises the story may have, so why bother?
Again: no blame or criticism intended in any of this. I think it's just lovely that our approaches to the same game are so diametrically opposite.
