MMORPGs-Social Interaction+Fun and Time Pass

There are still people who don't know what MMORPGs are. Well the full form is Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game(s) and there are also called MMOs for short. Nowadays there are loads of MMORPGs, infact I'm having a hard time figuring out which one to play. The main aim in some of them is just any other game and that is to finish it via a storyline or so. Others have some social features like chatting and some have both. The most famous and subscribed to MMORPG is World of Warcraft. Some people are so addicted to it that as soon as they get back from office or school will sit on it and get off only when they are about to go to bed. But not just WOW is addicting, there are other MMOs people are addicted to.

I myself am a Hardcore Gamer so I have played a lot of games before I came to know about MMOs. The first MMO I ever played and still am playing is RuneScape. It is a browser-based MMO meaning you don't have to download it and can play it on any Internet browser. It was founded by Andrew Gower a guy who created a Java game as a project for his college but soon was bought by a british company called JaGex Ltd and turned into the Most Popular MMORPG in the World as rated by The Guiness Book of World Records ! It is centred around Medieval times meaning the weaponry in the game is usually swords,shields,bows and arrows. It has over 5000 hours of gameplay with 20 quests(or Missions or Tasks) and 17 skills to raise. It is free to play or you can pay $5.95 per month as membership for 50,000 hours of gameplay and extra benefits as well access to 166 quests and 9 more skills !

There is whole lot more to the game that I can go on about but you have to try it to experience it. It may seem hard at first but as the game goes on it becomes more exciting and addicting to play. I have been playing it for 5 years now and still don't feel like stopping.

Like I said before lots of MMO give more importance to Society. My sister infact plays MMOs that also have chat functions included. It's great time pass to just goe up to someone in Virtual Reality and start a conversation and who knows it might even be your relative or your next door neighbour playing.(Trust me it happens because in my family all my cousins played and even my three uncles and now my brother who is just 6 years old is playing even though he doesn't understand :) ). So MMOs can also be a joined family activity. Some people don't forget the G in MMORPG so they play it purely because its basically a Game.

I play MMORPGs for all reasons. I'm also reading reviews about them to see which is the "next big thing" in MMOs like all MMORPGers. I don't know for which reason all of you guys may play for but it sure is a great way to kill time(if you have time to kill that is).

Anyways its been fun writing.

This is AJ signing off.
