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?
