We’re gearing up to kick off our annual awards later this month, but in the meantime, we thought it would be fun to incorporate some of your best award ideas from Justin’s piece a few weeks ago — some of the non-sarcastic ones, anyway!

Today’s was proposed by Agemyth: Who was the best new character or companion in an MMO in 2016?

I’ve got a soft spot for several of ArenaNet’s goofy characters over the years (I am Team Margrid forever!), but this year I’ve really surprised myself by getting wrapped up the story of Guild Wars 2’s Vikki and Momo. It’s been a dark period for my interest in video game story lore for sure, but they have my attention and my nomination.

How about you? Who was the best new character or companion in an MMO in 2016?

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!
