The Daily Grind: Do you experience social anxiety in MMOs?


While an outmoded argument says that everyone who shows up for massively multiplayer online roleplaying games must be in the mood for socializing, history has shown that’s not the case. There are many reasons that people are attracted to MMOs, and that includes introverts and others with social anxiety.

This is most notable when we come to the topic of finding and engaging in groups for difficult content. Or problems could arise when someone simply doesn’t know how to fit in with a social situation, such as a guild discussion.

Do you ever experience social anxiety in MMOs? If so, how do you cope with 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!
