    One more makes absolutely no difference. If the admins of this site choose to list some titles that are not strictly MMORPGs then so be it. If it honestly bothers you that much you have every right to utilize another site for your MMORPG News. Nobody has a gun to your head, forcing you to view this site.

     

    I wouldn't bet on it, he sounds frantic to say the least. Might actually be a MMORPG extremist group standing behind him with a gun yelling "IF YOU DONT GET THIS NON MMORPG FORUM AWAY FROM MMORPG.COM YOU SHALL DIE".

    Just saying...

    yes, i completely agree, call of duty is no RPG, but by going with the logic of D3 defenders saying it is an mmo, i can still say cod is an mmo. the problem is not diablo not being an RPG, the problem is, it is not an MMORPG. it is an action role playing game, there is no grey area

    Yeah, and further classification you can say Diablo-II falls into the rogue-like subgenre with it's hardcore mode. Diablo 3 will probably retain that.

    The classifications!?

    No wonder Pluto is no longer a planet.

    Cuz of you. You know who you are... YOU!

    I used to play MMOs like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

    i am sorry, but... what? there is no sub genre which can be used to classify a game... they are not the primal nature of the game.

    and as someone who studies physicist (major)... i can tell you that Pluto is not a planet. if we were to clasify pluto as a planet (as cute as he is), we would have to classify many other non-planetary bodies as planets.

    Action RPG is a subgenre.. lol. Diablo is listed as a RPG by the 'industry' it is the players who keep creating these other genres.

    All, it is okay to share your thoughts and opinions about any games, but it is not acceptable to start the name calling and antagonizing other posters. MikeB has mentioned earlier on to leave this thread open - provided conversations are being kept civil. Since it has turned into circular arguments and several personal attacks, I am going to lock this thread.
