There's No “Me” or “I” in MMORPG (But There Is An OMG…)
Having taking some time off Medeor, a writer on our Vanguard @ TenTonHammer site, is back and had time to look at what Multi Massive Online games meant to him and how he plays.Does it mean always having to interact with the community? Or is there more to it than just that?
When I was handed the idea to write about my definition of massively multiplayer, I really sat back and thought about how I interact and how I avoid interacting with others in games. Here's the deal though, does Massively Multiplayer mean I always have to hang with multi-players? Should I be able to solo, should we be able to get into a discreet instance of the world, should I be able to hole up in my office or room and not have to interact with anyone? (Oh wait, that's what I call life.)
Medeor shares with us his thoughts at Vanguard - TenTonHammer after reflecting on this assignment.
