Atmosphere and Immersion in MMORPGs

MMORPG IMMERSIONOne think I always took for granted was the importance of Immersion in MMORPGs. One MMORPG in particular that I found to be very Immersing was Lord of the Rings Online as it offered a detailed storyline, amazing scenery and just a laid back playstyle. The problem with a lot of MMORPGs in my opinion is that they feel too focused with providing content but not taking enough time to make the content high quality and just end up cramming everything into small areas.

The one thing that stood out for me in LOTRO was the size of the maps. I loved the idea of having to travel across large lands and exploring different areas, LOTRO was perfect for that. And not just that but the scenery is amazing and very unique, kept me curious what the next areas would look like. I know there are many other MMORPGs with great Immersion but this was just from my personal experience, players should definitely consider Immersion as a factor when picking out their next MMORPG.
