PC Gamer Chat Log Episode 9: Our precious MMO characters

Hello and welcome to the ninth episode of the PC Gamer Chat Log podcast! This week, Lauren and I are joined by guides writer Sarah James to talk all about our precious MMO babies.

With Sarah coming from World of Warcraft, Lauren from Guild Wars and myself from Final Fantasy 14, we have a great variety of MMO characters to gush about. The beauty of MMOs is you can be anyone, really. Turns out the three of us all play our MMOs and their respective characters a little differently, which probably speaks a whole lot to our individual personalities.

We offer a bit of backstory on each of our mains and talk about characters from other MMOs we've dabbled in. Do we see our characters as an extension of ourselves, or more like an old-school MySpace page that serves no other purpose than being pretty? 

We also chat about lore accuracy and role-playing, and Lauren reminisces about a very special Elder Scrolls Online character. If you're also a fierce defender of your MMO toons—whether they be personified shitposts, replicas of pop culture characters, extensions of yourself or a totally original character—this is the podcast episode for you.

As always with Chat Log, Lauren and I start off the episode having a chinwag about what we got up to this week. I continue to be an awfully predictable gamer (albeit with the addition of the flu this week) and Lauren once again tempts me with the idea of brilliant-sounding Stardewlikes.

Mollie Taylor
Features Producer

Mollie spent her early childhood deeply invested in games like Killer Instinct, Toontown and Audition Online, which continue to form the pillars of her personality today. She joined PC Gamer in 2020 as a news writer and now lends her expertise to write a wealth of features, guides and reviews with a dash of chaos. She can often be found causing mischief in Final Fantasy 14, using those experiences to write neat things about her favourite MMO. When she's not staring at her bunny girl she can be found sweating out rhythm games, pretending to be good at fighting games or spending far too much money at her local arcade.
