The Daily Grind: What sort of character options do you gravitate toward in a new MMO?

Easy sell.

Look, I consider myself a simple person with straightforward tastes. Give me a new MMO and I am going to go for dual-wielding swords. I like physical classes. I like hacking things apart. I like a little bit of magic sprinkled in there, you know, as a treat. If you give me that as an option, that is what I’m going to wind up making, and if you don’t give me that option, I am going to gravitate toward the closest approximation of that option.

Sometimes this is not necessarily a good choice; there are games where my preferred character builds actually involve using stuff I would otherwise eschew or weapons that wouldn’t directly appeal to me. Heck, if I like a game enough I’ll try a bit of everything and it’s very possible for me to find something else I like more. But I know where my first instinct is in terms of gravitation. What about you? What sort of character options do you tend to opt for in a new MMO, all else being equal?

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!
