So what is an MMORPG?

An online multiplayer role playing game is where a very large number of players interact with each other in a virtal game environment. With most MMORPG’s players control and avatar in third or first person view and explore landscapes, fight monsters, complete tasks and interact with fellow subscribers and non-player characters. You can also upgrage weapons and customise characters

One of the most well known is World of Warcraft (wow) by Blizzard.

The textures in WOW are very cartoon like and has an edwardian feel to it. With weapons like staff, sworks and bow and arrows.

A more recent addition to the MMO market is Final Fantasy 14. It is very similar in game play but edges much more towards photorealisum, with stunning landsacpes and FMVs.
