In Their Own Words: The Immersion Component
Others commented that it wasn't exploring in and of itself that was fun, but instead what was rewarding was finding out-of-the-way caves, dungeons or secret locations.
I have always loved exploring the world around me. I love to search through everything just to see what's out there. I wish that I could just run off and explore as easilly as it is done in EverQuest or anything else like it. I just like the feeling of finding the small cave entrance or narrow corridor that you never noticed before, what's in it? where does it go? The sense of adventure truly lies in exploration.

I have walked off of hundreds or thousands of cliffs looking for hidden ledges. [WoW, M, 35]
