The Daily Grind: Are there any ‘forgettable’ MMOs you still remember?


A while back, I proposed the term “temport” to describe a certain flavor of free-to-play MMO that gets imported from elsewhere (usually South Korea or China) to fly here for about a year, maybe a year and a half. These are games with settings and stories that would not stick with anyone but hopefully would make some money for minimal localization cost and then get shut down. These games are, ultimately, kind of forgettable and fade into the background for most people.

But that doesn’t mean these games have nothing to recommend them or are inherently bad. Every game is someone’s favorite, after all, and some of these games have one or two really clever systems tucked away, or a neat race, or a lovely area, or something that sticks with you even if the game itself has no real traction and isn’t going to last. So are there any “forgettable” MMOs you still remember and still bring up for whatever reason? Or do you tend to avoid these games and thus never discover what they might be hiding?

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!
