What is a mmorpg doing  creating FORUMS and gauging a RPG not a MMORPG, are you or are you not rpg? Are you falsely advertising what you represent? If so what would Crag the original creator of this site over 10 years ago think? Would you spit on his very own creation or is he doing it himself? I once spoke with the man who knew honor and mercy, but what he hell is this? you are not a rpg sight you are mmorpg you are BREACHING your own minor infractions remove this forum at once, you are out of line. Unless given specific reasons that this is a mmorpg instead of rpg which you won't unless you plan to lie to the entire world you have no businessn or reason of having a existing forum create another site meant for rpgs instead of mmorpgs if you want this here.

    Duly note that this is NOT sitting in off topic. They are representing ass if it should be part of a MMORPG list.

    Lowest common denominator and in this case, money.  Pimping to the big dogs of the game developers.

    OK  wow hmmm gee lets see....

     

    Is Diablo 3 a rpg?  YES!  I don't think anyone disputes this.

    Is Diablo 3 massively multiplayer online?    Hmmm Can alot of players play this game at the same time and does it require internet?  The answer is yes. 

     

     

    Just because it doesn't meet what you think of as a MMORPG doesn't mean it doesn't litterally meet the Definition.

     

    You might want to check the meaning before making a statement that is inaccurate just because it isn't what you think it should mean.

     

    I am going based on the literal meaning of the terms not the generally accepted meaning.

    We all can only be who we are Nothing more nothing less.

    A mmorpg is NOT as questionable as you would FOOLISHLY believe despite your attempt to create a point, a mmorpg is where several players of a minimum meet on a single server, and no the minimum is not 6 players. or 12, it is 100 or less, any lobby itself holding several characters has been offically been accepted, lobby being at least 60 plus players loitering around in a market place, before you check my knowledge you should check your own. Take your own words and follow them before handing it to others with all due respect. again which showing very little.

    People are so picky over what actually meets the criteria for "MMORPG"

    A certain classic MMO a few of us have heard of, Phantasy Star Online, was nothing more than grinding with the option to grind with three other humans with periodic events.

     

    Diablo 3 will, with all liklihood, be just that.

    You will hit monsters with hopes that you will become a stronger monster hitter while finding better monster hitting implements.

     

    By this definition, every Monster Hunter could easily make this list too.

    Borderlands as well.

     

    Who decides the line where multiplayer becomes massive?

     Define MMORPG?  I bet you will get about 15 different answers.

    Do you feel that Guild Wars belongs on this forum?

    Why did you not post an uproar about WarRock for example which is a FPS by all intend purposes.

    Why is LoL on the forums list but not HoN?

    Seriously what is the difference between 20 people sitting in some city in an MMO waiting to queue up for an instance to where they will play by themselves and a chat interface doing the same thing?  Explain to me the difference.

    "action rpg" Your going to argue with blizzard about their own game genre? Go ahead or go check your sources before claiming what is and isn't. Invalued arguments have no place here.

    Please explain how it's massively multiplayer? What is the max number of players allowed in a game, five, six? That's not even close to massive in any factual or generally accepted way. And don't even try to say that the lobby makes it massive, the lobby is nothing but a chat room.

     

    As to why it's listed here, stayontarget nailed it pretty well.

  • PukeBucketPukeBucket Member Posts: 867

    Most MMOs now are hub based crawls with auction houses.

    If DDO or a few other games with that similar mechanic are on the list...

    Then I can see how D3, tentatively, counts.

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

    Definition of mmorpg

    Massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) is a genre of role-playing video games in which a very large number of players interact with one another within a virtual game world.

    This is the literal definition,  and if you accually read my response to the botton I said i was going off the literal meaning not the generally accepted meaning. 

     

    Once again just because you want it to mean what you think it does, doesn't mean your right.  This is my last response as I hate feeding trolls.

    Massively - yes it'll sell a lot and a lot will be online. Multiplayer - yes you can play with others. Online - yes you need the internet to play this game. RPG - yes you play a role as a character. Does this answer your stupid rant OP?

    Guild wars just claffified itself as a accepted term of mmorpg when 80 people are standing in front of a entrance at channel 1 with 500 people standing at the damn crafting station, before you think there really IS 15 answers maybe you best just think about what truly is questionable and what isn't, I don't know about a damn thing about warrock it isn't no Diable nor a blizzard product and honestly, I don't have the time of day to be checking out what is and isn't under its classification but diable 3 has clearly been stated by its OWN developers that it is NOT considered a mmorpg, it is a action rpg as it has always been there is no GREY in this son. If you have a problem with how reality places with a grey go to a place where such arguments are valid this is a black and white matter, and its own stamp of approval has not only been known through out the damn world but recongize by wiki as well as its creator for over 10 years now. Mmorpg.com its violating its own rules. Hypocracy is no excuse and questioning a non grey area makes you look utterly the fool.

    Would you consider the few people that can actually play together in D3 a "very large number of players"? I don't, and for that very reason it's not an MMORPG.

    They left it up to a vote for the users here, it would seem the option for a d3 forum won out.

  • ElidienElidien Member RarePosts: 1,397

    To me, its not worth debating the definition of an MMORPG because its a moot point. What the OP does not address is how this effects him or how he has suffered due to the Diablo 3 forum being placed on this website.

    It can be argued that many of the games that are listed here are not MMO's by the OP's attempt to define them. Many of them are not massive at all - some have hundreds of players. So therefore, by rule, those games must be removed as well.

    I doubt the OP has any standing to argue. The Diablo 3 forum is not effecting his ability to post at this site. Further, these forums are a private discussion board and the admins can change the rules at anytime and in anyway they want. To get even more specfic, the quote from the forums themselves does not apply since Diablo 3 has its on forum; therefore the rule about non-MMORPG games does not apply because there is no need to post about a game in the off-topic forums when it has its own forum.

    Most liley just another Blizzard/WOW hater.

    The internets just got stupid.

     

    Diablo 3 is not an mmo. Everyone knows this.

    However, the OP shouldn't be getting his panties in a bunch regarding a forum being opened up for it. Who cares if mmorpg.com has a topic for Diablo 3.

    But everyone else.. really? Are you that dumb? Diablo 3 = action rpg. You dont' even need 5 brain cells to understand that.

    " but herb derp... it has multiplayer!! and it will sell a lot!! herb derp"

    So Call of Duty games are mmo's? Battlefield is an mmo? really?

    It is amazing how picky some people are. MMORPG.Com has game information on games that don't fit a narrow definition of MMORPG on their site. It defies the definition of honor!!1! They are breaching their own Terms of Service!!!1! And so on.

    MMORPG.Com is branching out. They are going to offer more categories of games instead of the games that fall into the narrow definition of mmorpg. Soon(tm) users will be able to see the categories of the game information so they won't have to view information that they don't want.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
