The Daily Grind: What could MMOs put into a dungeon to give you cold sweats?


We all have different fear triggers in real life — and some of these make horrible cameos in video games.

Don’t like arachnids? Welcome to the giant spider nightmare that is MMORPGs! What about public speaking? You’re now the team leader! Terrified of heights? Jumping puzzles! Even trypophobics might find their greatest nightmare in a game’s giant honeycomb or plus-sized sunflower.

So imagine that a developer was making a dungeon specifically designed to give you cold sweats by activating your deepest fears. What would the dungeon include in its design and creatures?

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!
