One of the things I regularly like to do with playing MMOs is to put something else on my second monitor to watch while I play. This might seem completely contrary to what others enjoy doing – after all, isn’t the whole point of playing a game to enjoy yourself with just that one game? But for me, it’s kind of nice to be watching a familiar movie I enjoy on one monitor whilst idly grinding up levels in Final Fantasy XI. One of these things doesn’t require most of my concentration, so why not treat it as a sideline?
But not every game really supports playing it this way. Games like WildStar, for example, are too active for you to really put them on as a background activity (the fact that that game in particular is no longer around is not the point in this particular case). So which MMOs do you find give you the most space for letting your mind wander? Which games are the best for just idly playing while you do other things?
