The MMORPG adventures you chose in 2015

When the Choose My Adventure column was first begun many years ago on Massively-that-was, it was an adventure entirely in the hands of the readers. The author, often different from game to game, left every decision to the whims of the voters, including the game itself. CMA has evolved over time to be less susceptible to community brigading and more an extended hands-on deep-dive into MMORPGs, but its core purpose is the same: You still nudge the author away from his or her comfort zones to really experience a game.

Mike Foster and Matt Daniel drove the Choose My Adventure bus this year. Here’s a look back at the games they played at your command.

MIKE PLAYS MMOARPGS
Choose My Adventure: Right-Click Sampler Platter Edition - It's been a crazy month. Since writing my farewell Choose My Adventure on Massively-X-Joy-Gadget--vs-Capcom-Turbo, I've sent a few hundred emails, helped raise a huge pile of money, and participated in launching an entirely new website. I've…
Choose My Adventure: Diablo of Exile - This month's Choose My Adventure is like no Choose My Adventure that has come before. Instead of deep-diving one game for four weeks, we're deep-diving a genre. OARPGs (online action role-playing games) are the topic for…
Choose My Adventure: Path of Marvel - In last week's Choose My Adventure, we learned a few magic spells and set off to conquer a tiny portion of Diablo III's hellish landscape. It was dark and depressing. In this week's Choose My Adventure,…
Choose My Adventure: Torchlight Heroes - Our March sampler-platter edition of Choose My Adventure is quickly coming to a close. There's only one more vote to take, one more game to play, and one more character to create. Our task this week,…
Choose My Adventure: Torchlight, too - March is but a memory. April is here. And while a new month certainly brings new things to Choose My Adventure, we've got just a bit of cleaning up to do before we head full-bore into…
MATT PLAYS FINAL FANTASY XIV
Choose My Adventure: Onward and Heavensward - [AL:FFXIV]Hello old (and new) friends. It's been quite a while, so I imagine a quick (re-)introduction is in order before we get to the good stuff. Some of you may remember me from the days of…
Choose My Adventure: Heart of the Cards in FFXIV Heavensward - [AL:FFXIV]Welcome ladies, gentlemen, and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri to the second installment of Choose My Adventure: Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward edition. Last week, I asked you all to vote on my character's race and class. The…
MATT PLAYS TROVE
Choose My Adventure: Three games enter, one game leaves - Hello again, friends, and welcome to a new cycle of Choose My Adventure. You may remember that last time around, I bypassed the whole game-voting process and jumped straight into Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, but this…
Choose My Adventure: Trove’s Candyman can - Hello again, friends, and welcome to another riveting installment of Choose My Adventure. I hope you have a sweet tooth (and a good dental plan) because things are about to get saccharine as hell up in…
Choose My Adventure: Setting up Camp in Trove - Welcome, friends, to another episode of Choose My Adventure: Trove edition. Last week, as you may recall, I took my first steps in the cubist dreamscape that is the world of Trove and settled into my…
Choose My Adventure: Trove’s brave new (uber) world - It's everyone's favorite day of the week -- at least if you're that annoying camel in that one Geico commercial -- and you know what that means: It's time for another episode of Choose My Adventure featuring Trove.…
MATT PLAYS WILDSTAR
Choose My Adventure: Freeloading in WildStar - Hello once again, friends, and welcome to a brand-new edition of Choose My Adventure. As you have probably already surmised, assuming that you read this post's title, I've decided to do things a little bit differently…
Choose My Adventure: WildStar’s crafting frustrations - Welcome, everyone, to another installment of Choose My Adventure: WildStar edition. Last week, Bonongo Jazz, Chua Spellslinger-slash-Explorer-slash-Architect extraordinaire, arrived at the Dominion outpost of Lightreach Mission in the (relatively) untamed wilds of Ellevar. Here, a new…
Choose My Adventure: Settling the homestead in WildStar - Hello everyone, and welcome to the latest (and ostensibly greatest, depending on your perspective) installment of Choose My Adventure. This week, we'll be bidding adieu to the wild world of WildStar, but that time hasn't come…
MATT PLAYS GUILD WARS 2
Choose My Adventure: Into the Heart of Thorns - Hello again friends, and welcome back to Choose My Adventure. November is upon us, and that means two things: It's time for another round of the annual cries of, "Why are all these stores decorating for…
