Quoted exactly off of wiki: A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting hundreds or thousands of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet, and usually feature at least one persistent world. They are, however, not necessarily games played on personal computers. Most of the newer game consoles, including the PSP, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Wii can access the Internet and may therefore run MMO games. Additionally, mobile devices and smartphones based on such operating systems as Android, iOS and Windows Phone are seeing an increase in the number of MMO games available. MMOGs can enable players to cooperate and compete with each other on a large scale, and sometimes to interact meaningfully with people around the world. They include a variety of gameplay types, representing many video game genres.
The reason I bring this question up is mainly because of SWTOR. Except for your ego, hatred, misunderstandings, and your inablilty to program or know much about programing a game, lots of people keep saying SWTOR is a single player game with multi-player options. Now I have read and talked to enough people to know that this isn't true, but what I don't understand is how ANY one could think that this is the case. By definition MMO to me just means other people are playing also and thats about it. Now with that yes there are things you can do in a MMO you can't in a single player game. You can group, you can talk to other players, you can trade and sell stuff, hell you can do just about anything you can come up with. So how is SWTOR or lets see...another game I like to play and see people saying the same thing about, League of Legends...based off your definition of a MMO how are these games not MMO's?
To me and millions of other players waiting, SWTOR is a MMO no question about it, not even worth arguing about. What really makes me excieted for the game is it is bringing the RPG to mmoRPG, which, as many MMOs as iv'e played starting with Meridian 59, have never really seen much of from what I like in single player rpgs. I have been playing Bioware games since Baldures Gate, and to me from what iv'e seen and read...Dec 20th can't come soon enough.
Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.
