You want to hear a fun secret? You might think that we at Massively OP are all content being the tastemakers of the MMO genre, but quite often, we on the staff are greatly influenced by our own readers and listeners when it comes to paying attention to certain titles and even trying out games.
The other day, I wrote up a piece on a new, in-development title called Slay Together. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but after seeing a couple of strong word-of-mouth recommendations from our own commenters, I went ahead and downloaded it to try out myself.
Who do you listen to for MMO recommendations? Who can point to a game and say, “Try this!” — and you’ll do so on the basis of their trustworthiness and taste alone? Is it guildies? Friends? Other commenters? Websites?
