The Daily Grind: What’s the point of collecting MMO vanity pets?


In my book, there are two types of MMO players. No, it’s not warlords and carebears. It’s not even subbers versus freebies. The only two categories that matter is whether a player is a pet collector or a pet denier.

I mean, how can you not want to go out and get yourself some adorable or bizarre traveling companion? And yet there are plenty of people who don’t see any appeal in snapping up virtual pets and parading them around for the world to see.

So if someone asked you, “What’s the point of collecting MMO vanity pets?” what would you say? Or would you simply shrug and say, “There isn’t,” and leave it at that?

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!
