I've been subbed to ESO since launch. With today's announcement that ESO's subscriber loyalty program will award me with a pet, I felt absolutely nothing. Well, I did feel curious. I like the game enough as it is to keep subscribing and I don't need any pets. I trashed all the pets I got with my pre-order and Imperial edition because they took up inventory space and I don't use them.
I'm not even a cold and heartless min/maxer, but I just don't get it. They are cute and all, but they just don't add to my gameplay experience. I know people even spend real money in some games to buy vanity pets. I never understood that. Also, mount collecting is another one. I understand it a little better than pets, because mounts are at least functional.
Why do people like vanity pets so much?
