The Daily Grind: What was the worst MMO industry trend of 2020?


As is tradition around MOP, we always follow up our award for best gaming trend with a discussion of the worst trend too because let’s be honest: Not every trend is actually a good thing.

Here’s one I’m not in love with: games revealed as MMOs turning into non-MMOs during development. I didn’t love it with Magic Legends and Torchlight Frontiers, both of which were originally announced as full MMORPGs. And Pagan Online, though never a pure MMO, also pulled a similar switcharoo with multiplayer fans this year.

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!
