The Daily Grind: Do you have any dealbreakers when it comes to trying new MMOs?


So I have a thing about MMO cameras: I pretty much will not play an MMORPG that doesn’t let me center my camera and my viewpoint. I absolutely can’t stand having my character be shunted off to the side so my weapon and targeting are in the center of my world. To be honest, it makes me a little nauseated navigating like that (or swooshing back and forth), and I find it super anti-immersive. Sure, it’s probably ideal in a shooter, but I ain’t playing a shooter – I’m playing an MMORPG! Or maybe that’s part of what annoys me: the sense that if a game insists on that viewpoint, it’s subtly telling me what it really is and where its priorities really are.

In any case, I might try games that insist on this view, but I’d probably call it a dealbreaker for my longevity for sure.

Do you have any dealbreakers when it comes to trying new MMOs?

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!
