Exactly, so lets call roses turnips and get on with it.FomaldehydeJim said:Firstly, your response assumes that the narrow definition is correct, therefore you are not debating my initial contention, but creating one of your own to swing the debate.khanstruct said:A: I disagree completely. We use words and phrases for a reason; to accurately describe an idea. It comes with living in a civilized world.FomaldehydeJim said:If I am standing in a hub town in GW1 waiting to join a group, how is that different to waiting in a hub town in WOW waiting for group finder?
People get too caught up in semantics on this site. It does not matter, there are more important things in the world. It involves a lot of players= then it is an MMO.
Get the hell over your restricted vision of MMOs. Get the hell over you personal prejudice. If a lot of people can play together then it is an MMO. If a lot of people can stand in a hub-town together, then it is no different to the modern dungeon-finder based MMO you all espouse as the one true definition of MMO.
Get with the times people. MMOs have not been about any social interaction for years. Is that the fault of the dam name? No, it is the fault of the players for wanting to solo everything, and guess what, you are one of those players.
B: Your argument of "there are more important things" would be better validated if you didn't make a post for the sole purpose of discussing it. How is this different than someone else posting their opinion? Cuz this one is yours?
Secondly, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
