The other day, my family was having a discussion about why more of the animals they’ve seen on TV zoo shows are never represented in the online games we play together. My son, for example, loves koalas, but I couldn’t immediately think of an MMO with koalas. My husband blurted out wallabies, which are cute little kangaroo subtypes. I had no idea he liked wallabies. But he’s not wrong!
Now, I’m sure some MMO out there has these, so you can feel free to drop them in the comments, but that is not really our topic for the day. And maybe it’s for the best that some of these cutiepie animals aren’t MMOs because let’s be honest: Designers would probably just be asking us to kill them, and we already have to kill too many cute critters. But it’d be nice to see more diversity, right? What real-world critter do you wish were in more MMOs?
