One of the hallmarks of MMORPGs is the freedom for players to create the kind of character that they want, from race to looks to class. It’s a large separation from most of mainline video gaming, where characters are established by the developers and inhabited by players. In Legend of Zelda, I was always Link, but in World of Warcraft, I’m PajamaPantz the Orc Rogue and proud of it. However, not all MMOs allow this degree of freedom; several eastern games, like Closers and Vindictus, create fixed character/class roles and ask players to select from among them. These characters have defined looks and backgrounds, which not only limits choice on the player’s behalf but results in a landscape full of clones. How do you feel about that? Is it hard to connect with pre-established MMO characters? Or do you like slipping into a role that’s already been fleshed out and prepared for you? 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!
