The Daily Grind: Do login incentives work on you?

MMOs really, really want you to log in and play them every day, mostly because if you do, there's an increased chance of you spending money on them. So above and beyond hopefully providing an engaging game experience, the studios often outright bribe players with login gifts.

I've seen these gifts in RIFT, Trove, and Lord of the Rings Online, as well as a particularly insidious gift system in Neverwinter that doles out rewards every hour. Soon we'll be hiring employees to just sit at our desks to keep our characters logged in while we sleep; mark my words.

So do these login incentives work on you? Do you make a round between MMOs that have these, even if you're not playing them as much?

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!
