Our favorite video games tend to make evangelists of us. It’s only natural to want to share something you passionately love with your friends, family, and that cute barista at Starbucks, after all. But sometimes the overwhelming scope and complexity of MMORPGs can make these games a difficult sell if you’re trying to drag someone into one.
I’ve given many pitches for MMOs over the years, and when I do that, I usually focus on just one or two key details that I particularly admire about the game. For example, if I was to try to sell someone on Lord of the Rings Online, I would probably extol the sweeping and detailed world that allows adventurers to explore Middle-earth in a way that you can’t find anywhere else.
How would you sell your friend on an MMO that you like?
