The Daily Grind: What’s your comfort MMO?


In all of the years that I’ve been playing MMORPGs, I’ve noticed that it is far, far easier to return to a known property and a beloved game than trying a new one out for the first time. The learning curve is less, you have an idea of what you’re in for, and there’s always the possibility of falling in love with the game all over again.

I call these comfort MMOs, and I have a few that see my grand return every year. Coming back to games like Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, or RIFT tends to be a warm and welcoming event without the anxiety of having to learn and evaluate a foreign game.

What are your comfort MMOs? Which titles have you returned to time and again because you’re too attached and enjoy knowing exactly what you’re going to experience?

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!
