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.

The Features of an MMORPG

  2. There’s an economy mechanism base on the exchange trade between the players and NPCs (non-playable characters controlled by the game).
  3. An ability to join a guild or a society of players.
  4. Game Masters who watch over the world and the players and sometimes organize special events.
  5. Game administrators who take care of all the technical aspects.
