Emotions were running high regarding City of Heroes last week, and for good reason. NCsoft inexplicably pulled the rug out from under its community by announcing the imminent closure of one of the more feature-rich games to ever grace the MMO genre.

There was an outpouring of disbelief, sympathy, and shock, both here at Massively and around the blogosphere. There were also a few folks who simply didn't get it. One comment even likened MMOs to television shows and suggested that both are inconsequential ditties unworthy of your long-term devotion or emotional attachment.

What about you, morning crew? Do you view MMOs as throw-away entertainment, or do you get involved and attached to the game and its community?

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!
