I'm aware, on some level, that not everyone plays an MMO with an eye toward roleplaying. But roleplaying is the key experience I want from a game. A big part of my investment in Final Fantasy XIV has to do with my long-term roleplaying experience with other players, years of friendships and rivalries and bitter feuds and romances that have been extremely moving. I can't really imagine playing a game without roleplaying.

But not only is that not universal, it's really the minority. So today I ask you, good readers of Massively: Do you roleplay? Are you generally playing your game of choice with a focus on character motivations, or do you mostly just like the looks and don't fret over things like characterization or whatever?

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!
