    This site feels that since the definition for "MMO" is very vague they instead let their users and game publishers decide for themselves. And more so to the point - they are okay with adding games that "aren't" an MMO so long as it has MMO-like elements (lots of players + persistent worlds) and is currently in the media spotlight.

    Last I heard (this was back when listing Diablo was under consideration) was that inclusion of fringe games on the site was based on the game being of interest to the MMORPG community in general.

     

    As far as games not being listed, I would assume they've either never requested a listing or such was disapproved.  The instructions for listing are here.

    100 man servers. Hell this has more right to be here than the 6 man lobby games you see on here.
