I absolutely love the fact that massively multiplayer titles give me a social experience even when I’m in a room all by myself. Bumping into other players, seeing them chat, and just knowing that they are there gives me a comfort that is hard to explain — but is noticeably absent when I play single-player RPGs.
What I love best is how other players endlessly amuse me. Whether it’s the inane debates over things that don’t matter in Barrens chat, dancing on top of mailboxes, silly guild names, punny monikers, atrocious outfits, adorable outfits, or spontaneous acts of heroism and self-sacrifice, the unknown behavior of the community keeps me coming back day after day.
How have other MMO players amused you, either recently or memorably in the past?
