6 of the best MMORPGs to play when you're socially anxious

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

MMORPGS can seem like a daunting environment to a socially anxious person but there are options available for people to enjoy the worlds created. Tried and tested by a bonafide anxious person - me!

1. Fallout 76

Fallout 76 is the online adventure based on the popular post apocalyptic roleplaying game. It's almost perfect for the socially anxious player. Interaction is limited to mostly emojis and server sizes are small - 24 players to max capacity. It's entirely possible to complete quests completely alone.

2. Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World is a sprawling world where you fighting and capturing dragons and fantastical creatures to learn more about them. This game also uses small servers and a limited method of communication. I have played it entirely alone and it was no more difficult, but it's nice to have the option to play with friends if desired.

3. World of Warcraft

Everyone knows what World of Warcraft is, the most popular online game of all time. Contact with other players can be as open or as closed as you desire. Entering dungeons with other players can be done with limited contact and it's possible to complete story content solo.

4. Elder Scrolls Online

Elder Scrolls Online follows the same lore and history of the single player series and feels like a complete world even without player interaction. Like World of Warcraft you can complete dungeons with other players without speaking to them and there's plenty of fun to be had exploring the world and doing quests on your own.

5. Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars is set in a sprawling fantasy world populated by colourful characters. Servers are small and contact between players is limited to text and easily ignored if desired. You can enjoy the game to its fullest on your own and get to max level.

6. Occupy White Walls

This game involves creating and curating your own art gallery. It's quirky and creative and the majority of interaction involves people visiting your gallery. Best of all, it's free.
