The Daily Grind: If your MMO were a movie, who would play your main character?


Massively Overpowered community, today I present you with the best road trip game ever: the who-should-play-what-character-from-a-beloved-book game. Only I’m not asking about a book; I’m asking about you — specifically, your favorite character in your favorite MMORPG.

I guess this game sort of breaks down if your favorite character is an Ithorian or a Lalafell or a Granok, but work with me here.

This question is way harder than it sounds, by the way, even if you play humans. I’ve had a terrible time thinking of a famous actress who could pull off my tomboyish Socorran pirate or my chubby warrior from Stormwind. My husband, however, read this post over my shoulder and without hesitation immediately nominated Ricardo Montalbán for his half-mad, smooth old doctor. I mean, it’s like he had prepared for this conversation. Also, Ricardo Montalbán? Kind of a badass. Good pick.

Who should play you?

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!
