I have been a lot of things in MMORPGs over the years. Raider. Roleplayer. Cat-herder. Merchant. Even killer. But one thing I’ve never really been is a completionist, somebody absolutely obsessed with doing it all, or doing all of something. Even in real life, I don’t ever try to collect all of something – only those very specific things that I want.
City of Heroes, however, has been threatening to suck me into the completionist lifestyle. In that game, there’s a whole class of players known as “badgers” – that is, people who go around the game and attempt to collect all the badges, essentially achievements for all kinds of activities, from exploration and selling stuff to killing dudes and even healing friends. My favorite bit is that a lot of these badges come with titles that you can wear under your name, which I personally consider just as important as my costume and name.
What would you say is the best MMORPG for obsessive completionists?
