    I would argue there are many more people who ONLY use Google, and no other search engines.

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, BDO, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,
    ESO, Fallen Earth, FFXI, FFXIV, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MxO, Neverwinter, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, Shadowbane, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...and a bunch of others not worth mentioning.

    I think "Dress Like a Woman" is a new F2P browser MMO :)

    It's still a valid source and probably the largest one at that.



    According to even Alexa Google.com is the most active and visited website! I would venture to guess 90% of people in the US use Google. I know I do.

    I use DuckDuckGo because life without ads is preferable, but I don't pretend for a second the information is coming from anywhere but Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

    I am trying to think last time I googled any of the games I play.



    Not something I do.




    I Google quest titles and many times character names from MMOs to see their history and background. I usually do not Google say: World of Warcraft or RIFT specifically.

    Stop with the fake news crap. Google is the largest search engine used in the world. Enough already.

     official website : http://www.digitalbrands.com/partnerships

    Like I said : FAKE NEWS !


    That doesn't make it fake news. It's something you think is useless, but something I think is entertaining. Even if your poll wasn't overwhelmingly YES to remove. I'd still leave it, because you're being ridiculous. Go play a game, it'd be much more productive. 

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    What I'm understanding as long as the article is prominent to ones views, it is ok. THisis epic in understanding media in general. Targeting those who have already surcomed to the poison to try and pass that poison along. mmorpg.com has did just that
    #wakeup
    Is surcomed something like succumb but on meds at Big Sur?

    Are you serious?  Google is the defacto internet search engine and has been for quite some time.  Most people these days say they're going to "google" something when they mean they're going to search the web.  The fact that you've personally stopped using Google is rather insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

    Meh, this is nothing compared to Nick Yee's researches. This is WHAT, he answers a much, much more interesting question: WHY.

    I bet whenever a new expansion or major update is announced that search engine goes crazy. I would like to see Youtube's research data.  

    Instead of Republicans and Democrats there should be WoW's and LoL's parties.  

    And who said violent computer games make people hostile and cynical?  :-)

    It is just odd that i have seen this very same numbers posted on other sites as well,did Google send out some memos or something.
    I guess news just spreads like a viral disease with the internet now a days.
