The Daily Grind: Are there any MMOs you waited for reviews before buying?


As someone who spends a not-insubstantial part of my life reviewing games, especially with bigger titles, I know it sometimes feels like wasted time. I know that I will be evaluating the next Final Fantasy XIV expansion here when it comes out, but I also know that 90% of the people who are aware it exists have made their purchasing decision about this expansion months ago. Very few people are waiting to hear whether or not it is any good first.

But maybe I’m wrong. Or maybe I’m entirely right, but you have interesting anecdotes wherein you weren’t planning on getting a game but reviews convinced you otherwise… or you wanted an MMO until you read something in a review that gave you pause. So are there any MMOs you waited for reviews before buying? Games that looked intriguing but you refused to play until you had some sort of critical insight?

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!
