One of the factors that keeps me from playing more MMOs than I already do is that so many of them are not very friendly to a casual gaming approach. They take too long to log in, or have a lengthy learning curve, or require far too much time to make decent progress. I mean, sometimes you want a timesink and an energy sink. Sometimes you don’t.
So where does one go when one wants to dip in and out of a game and still have an enjoyable experience? Action RPGs such as Marvel Heroes seem to excel in this, as does the zippy little Trove.
If I were to ask you what MMO is the most casual-friendly, what would you say in response?
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!
