Is the MMO dying?

Just a few short years ago, massively-multiplayer online games (MMOs) were considered the future of gaming.

I think so. Perhaps when a developer actually puts the time in that is required for a content-rich MMO people will be more attracted to them.

Even if ever it dies, which I doubt it will, the instant there's a dedicated Pokemon one from Nintendo, there will be an instantaneous resurrection.

Blah ha ha! I guess this silly editor wanted to be the first one to put out a "MMO is DOOMED" Article.

The MMO is just getting started. It was born on the PC and has found it's way to all genres of games and Next Console Gen it will be the MAIN Focal point of console gaming.

.....and please do some research before you start RAGE disagreeing because MMO means more than just "World of Warcraft" and most MMO's do not have a monthly subscription either!!

FPS, RTS, 3PS, Hack n Slash, Racing, Adventure, Action, MOBA, 3D Space Sim, etc. can all be MMO's.

I'm looking forward to hearing consolers talk about their favorite MMO Next Gen!!

My current favorite MMO is Tera Online and Takistan Life!

I don't support MMORPGs that require a monthly fee like World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic (although BioWare recently made it free to play YAY!!....) nor do I support greedy fucking companies that overprice and rarely reduce the cost of their products (I'm looking at you Nexon with your Maple Story and Mabinogi).

free 2 play is as bad as monthly fee. basically Pay 2 win

I am really starting to dislike all the free to play games out there. It segments the community and creates an uneven playing field. I actually miss the days where I could drop $50 on a game and get the whole game.

Yes, but Guild Wars 2 is changing all of that

Uninformed "journalist" is uninformed. MMO's are far from dying, right now the scene is bursting with new games almost every month.

mmos combined make more money than all ps3 and 360 games combined minus call of duty, so no, don't think thats happening any time soon
