The Daily Grind: Do you ever cringe at stuff you used to do in MMORPGs?


I’ve probably told this story before, but a whole lot of my early gaming characters from when I was younger, including in MMORPGs, were named after characters in a certain popular fantasy book series. Nobody important, mind you, mostly obscure third-tier characters. I wasn’t running around as Luke Skywalker or Legolas – a gold star to you if you immediately know where Annoura, Masuri, or Nisao came from – but I’m a little embarrassed about it now, especially since I still have and play some of these toons when I return to old games. But not embarrassed enough to change their names.

Then again, I once named a berserker character ZERKIN to play a very serious test game with my colleagues, so maybe I should go back to borrowing names.

Do you ever cringe at stuff you used to do in MMORPGs?

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!
