Completely agree, and perhaps this is why I find most MMOs boring, because when I'm playing a singleplayer game, I've never been interested in rushing to level up or obtaining overpowered loot.

Someone could drop a +100 sword of deadly fire whatever in front of me, and I have no interest in picking it up because the game would become too easy and boring. Or maybe I'm playing a character who likes to use a crappy axe for whatever reason.

I'm more interested in exploring the world, joining factions, interacting with NPCs, etc., and I usually prefer to level up as slowly as possible, because whenever I get to be too powerful or too wealthy, the game becomes boring and I start over with a new character.
