When most gamers hear the term MMOG their thoughts turn to orcs, dwarves and dragons, but lately the genre has been moving away from fantasy and exploring new worlds.

When most gamers hear the term MMOG their thoughts turn to orcs,
dwarves and dragons, but lately the genre has been moving away from
fantasy and exploring new worlds. While diversity has become more
common and accepted, most games still feature combat as their core game
play element. A Tale in the

sandbox-style games since Star Wars: Galaxies, but now I may have to go

you feel and the amount of cooperation here is hard to describe without
experiencing it yourself. Everything from technology, to architecture,
to art, culture and law are all player created and player driven.
