The Daily Grind: What entices you to try out a new MMO you weren’t otherwise following?

Phun phor the phamily.

Look, Phantasy Star Online 2 does not need to entice me to play it. The only thing it has to do is announce a launch on a platform I would not refuse to accept even as a gift (so, you know, the PC version). Some games don’t really need to win us over because they’ve already become games we’re watching and paying attention to from launch or earlier. But other games exist in a different space, games that we know about but aren’t necessarily inspired to play until…

Well, that “until” matters. For me, a lot of the time it can be as simple as “the opportunity to try this out for work is presented.” (I am notoriously cheap.) But it could also be a game holding a crossover with a property you quite like, or the addition of a new combat skill, or even just a steep sale following lots of interesting news. So what entices you to try out a new MMO you weren’t otherwise following?

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!
