The Daily Grind: Do you turn MMOs into work?


Confession time: I like spreadsheets. I can turn any MMORPG into a spreadsheet, into what most folks would consider work. I made fun of Warehouse and Logistics Simulator on Steam, but I admit to a twisted urge to buy it and play with numbers management all the same. It's a sickness.

So while I join in the mockery of EVE Online as "Spreadsheets Online," it's mostly disdain for the game's falderal than for the gamers who genuinely enjoy making elaborate crafting and production spreadsheets, long lists of character plans, and auction hall arbitrage notes. You themeparkers can keep your level grind; I've got my own right here in Excel.

How about you guys? Do you turn MMOs into a multiplayer version of Warehouse and Logistics Simulator?
