The Daily Grind: Which MMO has the best races?


The other night I had the opportunity to play Asheron’s Call for the first time (and most likely, the last time). It was a surprising blast of originality wrapped up in the visuals of a game from two decades ago.

One of the features that deeply impressed me was the game’s imaginative roster of races. Absent were the boring stock fantasy races of Elves, Dwarves, and the like, and instead there was a wild assortment of well-thought-out species that included sentient bugs and a guy whose lower half of the body was magical smoke.

Maybe that’s far from the best MMO when it comes to racial representation. If you had to pick — and you do — which MMO has the best races?

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!
