    No .. When deveolping there game they called it a Hybrid , I never said call it that or that its ok , you said all that ....That being said GW2 is an MMO Destiny is not for obvious reasons ..

     And the fact you need to go to such extremes shows you are reaching desperatley here..
     
         IMO and i made it quite clesr but reading comp rears its ugly head ..

       A game like Destiny is not MMO anything .. i dont care what noun/pronoun/adverb or adjective you want to add , if you were following the thread you would of read that , and not been so blind in your response here ...

      you honestly bring nothing worthwhile to the discussion , your middle school rants are laughable ..


    It emulates an MMO.  You don't go into the grocery store and complain imitation sugars or crab meat aren't the originals.  Obviously there is a connection people see to original in flavor. 

    If you were honest with yourself you would admit thousand of players on one server playing in instances is similar to thousands of players playing in instances on MMORPG. There is a logical connection. This isn't a MOBA that is a match.  You have players flowing in and out of instances.
      And again Verm the difference and is and you are leaving out a big part of this equation here ..

                   A game like Wow has instances Yes .. but it also has and supports the server Tech to deliver Massivley Player content .. Destiny does not .its a Lobby Based Shooter and there is nothing  wrong with that ..

      You cannot intentionally leave out a Game like Wows server tech from the discussion , just because it has Instances also its willful ignorance.. If you like , but i dont think i need to i can link dozens of examples of Massivley game play Utilizing Wows server tech .. How many can you link of Destiny doing the same ...............

    Again you are talking about sever tech.  I am talking about results of server tech.  This is again like complaining imitation crab is fish.  We all know it is fish not crab.  The result is fish that barely taste like crab meat.  Just like sweet n low has a completely different make up from sugar.  Diet drink is twice removed from the original fruit juice.  Are you petitioning grocers for a change.

    Just like we all know MMO lite aren't true MMO.  It plays like a themepark MMO.  That is why it has MMO as part of the term.  People have independently come to the term.  It is not rocket science.  Even if you wholly reject the term because you feel you know better... you can at least acknowledge there is a logical reasons.
      Who is we .. its a very small minority here that think that ,, and go check the latest Fallout 76 article here .. the result is the same ...


      And again even the Devs realize they are not making an MMO just ATVI/Bungie realize they dont have an MMO in Destiny ..

        They are laughing at the idea of it ... but i suppose you 3 know better ..

      Im done here ...

    I never claimed that Fallout 76 or any of the games are MMO. I said   That is kind of the point you continue to spin.  I said MMO-lite.  Not sure what Fallout is trying to do even bring it up.  I am talking Destiny, The Division, Warframe and etc.  Thry all play like MMO.

    You are wrong if you think a minority feel like anything with online capabilities is a MMO.  Only us old guard even care to label.
    And again ... ohh boy .. I dont think its MMO anyhting at all i dont care what adverb/pronoun/noun/or adjective you want to add to it ,, its not an MMO it was developed as an MMO it will never be an MMO of any sort

      And i never said anything about other than the Community here .. But ive read similar thread at redit for example and the result is the same .. The majority do not feel Destiny is an MMO..

      Dinner for me ..
    Again I will repeat that calling something an MMO-lite doesn't mean it is an MMO anymore than calling a purple sugar concoction grape make it actually anything grape.  There is a logical step in reasoning because of imitation.  All you can fall back on is that it is not an MMO and I am not saying it is.

    A majority wasn't even around for UO and EQ.  They just know MMO is an online game. Sure any MMORPG conclave will be concerned with what is a True MMORPG.  Most current MMORPG or MMO don't even hold to standards of the past.  

         LMFAO this isnt even worth a response im sorry .. you have fun you 3 call it whatever ya want ,,, wtf ..
    LOL that's the point we do call whatever we want.. whatever we want. Apparently some people don't want us to.  Though, y'know, if something isn't worth a response, responding to tell them that, kinda defeats the purpose.

    MMO lite has been used for years in one way or another.  You are like a decade in your resistence lol.
    Not in any real context. Just people failing to explain something using an acronym that does not fit what they are describing in any fashion. If it actually worked, no one would complain. That's what you need to realize. It just doesn't work.

    Not sure what gives you anymore authority to declare something not working. Are you part of the Federal Acronym Bureau of Review?   

    No it has always been used as a term to describe something that isn't viewed as full fledged MMO.  It has been around for years.  It has stuck to games like Destiny. Quick search it is described in a 2014 Forbes article as MMO-lite. 

    This is the only thread I have ever seen that had issues with those games being called MMO-lite.

    LOL 

    Its amazing how far some of you will go just to scream in the face of reason.

    We gave logical and well thought out explanations on why we believe Destiny and games like it are related to MMO in some fashion.

    Like I said, we will see what has changed in 12 months. I'm guessing there will be more MMO-Lites on the market and less traditional MMORPGs that people care about. 

    Most gaming media including this one will be covering quite a few big MMO-Lite games.

    I promise this will be a discussion (MMO-Lites) and it will be funny to see if some of you keep the same energy and risk looking even more washed up than you do now.

    Don't back peddle.

    smh.. why do you keep talking about what Bungie Marketing is saying? You know better. 

    They can call it whatever they want, that's marketing, box art.. that's marketing, game quick bio is all MARKETING. There are many reasons why they wont call it MMO or MMO Lite..but mainly because the MMORPG market is all but dead making it a HUGE risk that's non-debatable.

    Us saying MMO lite has nothing to do with Bungie Marketing. They admitted that Destiny was inspired by MMOs, but if you play it, you quickly realize its more than inspired by.. We are saying it PLAYS like a MMO and that's okay for us to say because its true. Other Destiny players also say this, Unlike you and the rest of the "Because I say so" bittervets, I provide context and evidence to back up what I say. I've already provided links to such things in this thread.. so what are you denying?

    Are you denying it plays like a MMO? If so you have never played Destiny even once or you haven't played MMOs even once... which is it? 

    If you have played both you would see the correlation quickly.

    Doesn't matter lol.  These games will be called MMO and MMO lite by me and others.  It is just what it is. It is not new. I don't agree with them being call full fledged MMO.

    Bungie really doesn't have a choice in the matter.  Not even if their marketing team decides to call it a coop murder simulator.

    MMO-lite is here to stay.  I know I was using term for an idea way back in 07 to 09.

         But we all know you wont do that dont we .. .. You dont want the truth ..

     Youve spent enough time writing here about it , surely you believe enough in your Theory to write ATVI/BUngie an email , why i would guess you could put it together in 10 minutes ....  Unless of course you dont want to know what the developer thinks ,

      the amount of people calling it that is very very small , ive done some looking around even recently on Reddit .. it s the same discussion .. a couple trying to push an agenda the mass pushing back and laughing

    What are you rambling about?  If I created a themepark MMORPG and said it was an Online Action RPG does it matter?  What people call an MMO-lite has been used to describe The Division, Warframe, Anthem fits Destiny.  It has been applied for long time.

    Wouldn't it be Bungie that needs to write multiple news outlets calling their game a MMO-lite? Obviously they don't care. 

    I know you are trolling at this point but it is ok to accept change. It will be alright.

    It's still the same ol' arguments 'round these parts.  

    Semantics really mean nothing... we can call it an MMO, a "CORPG", a "Shared World Shooter", a "Toucan in a Party Dress", an "MMO Lite", a "Hub Based MORPG" --  it doesn't matter what you call them, it doesn't change what they are.

    What's the point really?  Even "True MMOs" still instance content, cap areas, and even if they didn't WHO CARES, when was the last time you had more than 100 people in an area that you could see? GW2's WvW? Did it somehow make the game more enjoyable?

    I don't know, I think people make a big deal about pigeon holing games into their own definitions too often, and honestly ask any 10 users on this site what an MMO is, they'll all give you a different answer, and they're all wrong, or maybe they're all right...  but that nobody can pin down the exact definition is fairly telling. 

    And another question, is a game an MMO if the server can handle 1 million people in the same persistent world, but you only ever see 30 at a time?  How different is it than games that allow 100 people in a persistent world and yet you always see 40 people everywhere you go?  


    Modern civilization cares. It's why languages were invented. So people know what the hell you're saying when words spew out of your mouth. If you start referring to boats, cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, snowmobiles, jet skis as just "vehicles" all the times, people will look at you funny.

    So, I drove my vehicle with my vehicle down to the lake, but after the day was done, my vehicle broke down, so I had to leave it there.

    Can you guess which vehicle broke down? Probably not. So there's your most obvious answer for why people hate meshing everything under the sun into one category.
    I agree that modern civilization cares about categories which is exactly why this thread was created. But also i'm confused on what you are implying here with your car reference.

    Are you saying that someone saying games like Destiny are MMO-lites is the same as calling all vehicles "vehicle"?

    I disagree. 

    Defining MMO-lites is like saying this vehicle is a pickup truck and this one is a suv.

    They both do the same thing but they are slightly different and should be defined. Why Define a vehicle as Truck but get salty when people define a vehicle as SUV?  

    It does not matter that you are a truck vet, we all have driven trucks.  there is enough truck in a SUV for people to realize its from the truck family but its different enough to be considered its own TYPE of truck. Thus the SUV. or in video games terms, the mmo-lite. 

    Most people who own SUVs (Myself included) dont say I need to go wash my suv, they dont say i need to go wash my car.. we say i need to wash my truck. 

    We know the difference between a truck and a suv but the word truck has been around longer so its easier to use and  its okay to use because its in fact a form of truck. 

    People who deny that sound like "don't call your suv a truck! my dodge ram is a truck! that's a car! its not even a truck! it doesn't have a bed in the back!" 
    I can see where both sides are coming from. My opinion is that I'm just happy that people are separating true mmos with multiplayer games. If you or someone else wants to call them "MMO-lite", have at it.

    These games (Destiny 2 etc.) tend to have similarities to Full fledge mmos (WoW). But imo it's in the same respect as SP/MP RPGs have to MMORPGs.

    Any game where potentially all players at least 100+ on at any given time can meet and interact together in 1 place without any lobbies in a persistent world is a mmorpg. These mmo-lites aren't mmos at all and shouldn't be counted as them. I'd actually view star citizen as a mmorpg over many listed

    Just not sure I see the reason to redefine CRPGs and lobby games as "MMO-Lite" games.

    This just seems random.

    EDIT: Man I did not even pay attention to the necro-postification of this.

    Can't remember if I made a post about solitare being an MMO because it's massive, multiplayer and online.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    I think for most players they don't care. When I played Destiny 2 I had to literally look it up to see if MMO because I couldn't really tell the difference.
