offered up today's Daily Grind
question to us, and it was too good to pass up: "In which MMO quest or event have you been the most emotionally involved? I was just reading You Awaken in Razor Hill
and thinking that World of Warcraft
was pretty good at poignant quest lines, and it made me wonder what people had found in other games."
I agree that for a game lately panned for its pandas, WoW
has some great storylines. The coin in the image above still gives me goosebumps of sadness when I read Jaina's hopeless wish. But then again, I've never stayed up until 4 in the morning because of a game's plot; it takes a player-driven roleplaying plot to really get me that emotionally invested to the point that I have real tears in my eyes for characters that are entirely fictional.
What about you? Do you get emotionally involved in MMO stories or lore or quest lines? If so, which one stands out the most for you?
