The Daily Grind: Should all MMOs come with player music systems?


While developing player music systems might seem like a superfluous effort, in my opinion it is a feature that should come standard in most all MMOs. Why? For starters, it’s a terrific outlet for player creativity, as it allows the community to generate entertainment for each other in infinite varieties. It adds to the feel of the world, is hard to twist into obscenity, and allows for the formation of groups to form bands and throw concerts.

But the real argument topper for the inclusion of such systems is that players go absolutely bananas for them. It’s one of the most-cited favorites of Lord of the Rings Online, even from haters of the game, and player concerts there have drawn so many listeners that it’s nearly crashed the server.

What do you think? Should all MMOs come with player music systems?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
