While many of you prefer digital downloads to retail packaging judging by a recent Daily Grind
, collector's edition boxes continue to roll out of MMO studios for virtually every major release. Whether you've pre-ordered the Cataclysm
or DC Universe
packages, or you've recently picked up a sealed gem from the Amazon.com
bargain bin, there's no shortage of MMORPG art books, figurines, maps, soundtracks, and in-game items to be had on the open market.
Quality varies widely along with quantity, from the sublime (Age of Conan's
stunning 128-page art book and Final Fantasy XIV's
leather-bound diary) to the sub-par (Lord of the Ring's Online's
somewhat flimsy cardboard sleeve).
The question of the day, dear readers, is which of these packages is your favorite? Is it due to the packaging/contents itself or the in-game bonuses?
Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
