One Shots: Giant envy


Last week’s call for screenshots of MMO giants brought out some big responses. Hefty contributions, if you get my drift. And we’ll kick off with Utakata’s adventures in Blade and Soul where this bold warrior met a giant gorilla who can dress himself in armor, apparently.

“The bigger they are…” Utakata said.

…the larger their droppings? Because that thing’s got to have one stinky habitat.

Vincent Clark gave us a contrast between large and diminutive in Final Fantasy XIV, all set to enchanting music:

“This is a giant named Gort in Guild Wars 2,” Daniel explained. “He gets bullied by ettins every hour or so. Sadly, since he is an NPC, he needs help dealing with the cave stealers that are one-fifth his size.”

Won’t somebody please think of the short giants? We should start a GoFundMe for them.

Lucky Jinx immediately went to the most famous giant of World of Warcraft’s newest expansion: “I like the challenges, so I present you Stonehead. Are you a good bud or a bad bud?”

According to the game, I’m always a “bad bud” no matter what I’ve done or proven to this realm. He does like flinging me so.

And to wrap up our plus-sized edition, IronSalamander8 risked life and limb to photograph a Giga-Gargantuar in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.

It tickles me to no end to think that, according to this picture, there’s an eye doctor who specializes in glasses for eyeballs of this size.

All right, shake off that lethargy and get to postin’ some screenshots in the comments below! If you need a challenge for this week, take a picture of a truly unique beast or race in an MMO and tell us what you appreciate about this design.

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
