The Daily Grind: When's the last time you got lost in an MMO?

Map of Eorzea
Yesterday's reveal of The Elder Scrolls Online's interactive map got me to thinking about MMO cartography and how necessary it is outside of flavor or lore considerations. Sadly, I think the answer is that it's not necessary at all except in a few archaic sandbox games that eschew quest chains and the like.

That said, you can still turn off your map and just explore even in a linear, themepark-style game, and so today I'd like to know how many Massively readers have ever done that. More specifically, when's the last time you got lost in an MMO, if ever?

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!
