OK, for today’s topic, we’re going to be limiting ourselves strictly to scifi MMORPGs (sorry fantasy, you’ll have to settle for pretty much 95% of the posts on any given day). As we explore virtual galaxies, we’ve bumped into plenty of alien races — some playable, some helpful, and some grumpy as all get out.
So the question is this: What are the coolest MMO alien races? Honestly, for this topic, I could probably write a huge essay on WildStar’s alien roster alone, from the adorable Lopp to the corporate Protostar clones. But other MMOs have pretty groovy aliens too, like SWTOR’s Nautolans, Star Trek Online’s Borg, and Elite: Dangerous’ Thargoid.
What do you think? When you visit strange, new worlds, which lifeforms intrigue you the most?
