The Daily Grind: How much does fear of missing out motivate your MMO Video game playtime?

MMO stands for Massively Multiplayer Online, or also known as MMOG, which stands for Massively Multiplayer Online Games. In MMOs, a large number of players come online to play a game on the same server.
MMOs make people interact with each other virtually. These players can form allies and fight or make enemies in the game. These interactions are meaningful for some people.

MMOs represent many video game genres. These are available for Personal Computers (PCs), video game consoles or smartphones.
There can be a variety of MMOGs.

MMOs can be an action MMORPGs (Role-Playing Game), MMOBBGs (Bulletin Board RPGs), MMOFPSs (First Person Shooter), MMORTS (Real-Time Strategy), Turn-Based Strategy, Simulations, Sports, Racing, Casual, Music/Rhythm, Social, or Combat.

Players can play MMOs as they want. Like in Final Fantasy XVI, players can do crafting and earn some rewards for it. There is no rush to get the rewards because there are at least two months when a new update is released, and everything is changed.

Players can take it slow, earn the rewards calmly, and enjoy the content. But some players keep on making many ovens and earn scrips. They wish to go to crafters event to earn further scrips.
Things are not the same for everyone.

Many players believe that it is best to play World of Warcraft expansion towards the end of its lifespan. By this time, guides about the game are out, and people catch on quickly.

Many like to be on the ground floor because of the fear of missing out or also known as FOMO. The ones who are not high enough for the new content can be seen making progress with their characters, or are eager to try out the latest updates.

Such players should retrospect if they want to play the game, or is it the FOMO that is making them play it? If it is something that they are missing out? By using the guides and getting around things quickly actually makes you miss out on things more.

A player cannot discover certain things that are not mentioned in the guide. FOMO drives players a lot to play MMO.
