Unpopular opinions: We all have them. In fact we have so many that it’s a straight up meme. This week’s Massively Overthinking is one I’ve wanted to do for a while since sometimes we need a break from discussing serious stuff. I’ve asked our staff to summon their own personal top five unpopular opinions about MMORPGs and the MMO industry – stuff they genuinely, truly believe but that isn’t widely shared, so no trolls – just hot takes.
