The Daily Grind: Are you hooked on that ‘new character smell’ in MMOs?


Oh man oh man, I do love that new character smell in MMOs. It’s about one of my all-time favorite things for online gaming when I roll up a brand-new adventurer and get to revel in the freshness of it all. Usually I try to change things up a little bit — try a new class, a different race combo, lay out different goals — so that things aren’t stale from the start.

Sometimes these alts end up going the distance, sometimes they’re just momentary distractions. But in each and every case, I love taking their screenshots with the thought of, “This is where their journey begins.”

Are you hooked on that “new character smell?” Is that why you make so many alts? Do you feel really called out right now, or do you have no idea why crazy people like me exist?

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!
