MMORPG Games

MMORPG games are the titles in which we play and control fictitious characters who have adventures and with time grow in power – this is the RPG – role-playing games part of the acronym. We also live in the world where we play with many other players online – MMO – massively multiplayer online. The most known game of this genre is World of Warcraft.
