The Daily Grind: What’s your ideal MMO aesthetic?


I had to giggle a while back when a Blizzard developer described Diablo IV’s aesthetic as “dark noodles.” That’s just so perfect, and it absolutely conjures up the exact mood for the whole franchise in two words.

I thought it would be fun to sit down and try to suss out my own MMO aesthetic. “Space opera hopepunk,” maybe? But also “ghostly desert frontier” or “overgrown cozy shire garden” or “retro tech pixel shack”? We can do more than one thing! What’s your ideal, favorite, or most common MMO aesthetic, and what MMO suits it?

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!
