A few weeks back, when MOP’s Justin did a Daily Grind about whether folks prefer helmets on or off in MMOs, one reader took a roleplay approach to the decision. “Off in conversations,” Lord Nox said. This seems like a no-brainer – pun intended! – but really, unless you’re a hardcore roleplayer, when was the last time you actually did take your helm off to chat? In fact, when was the last time you did anything like that just to be more immersed in an MMO?
That got me thinking about walking vs. running. I’m gonna be honest, even in MMORPGs where I am roleplaying, I absolutely hate walking. I hate being slow. I hate feeling slow. I would always rather be running in a game, even if it wouldn’t make much sense to be running from, say, shop to shop in a mall.
Do you swap between walk and run in your MMOs, or do you slap on run and never look back?
