Top 5 Facts About MMORPG Gamers

Chillopedia | Although most would argue that video games are a waste of time, players who participate in massively multi-player online role-playing games develop certain abilities. (Culture)

Whoa! an Article which doesn't actually criticise MMO gamers. Thank you, my good sir, it was a good read.

Wait, this could be said about all gamers....

And since when do MMORPG gamers spend more time learning the lore? That would be standard RPG gamers. WoW for instance, how many people who play it know about WC2 and WC3 lore? The majority don't.

I think the only real good point was multi-tasking. The rest are found in many other types of games.
Right on the money. Most WoW players probably haven't even heard of the Warcraft games. A lot of them are Midwestern American housewives bored of their miserable lives looking for a fantasy world to escape to.

@Sega

I only played WoW for half a year, that was too many years ago.

Most people I knew had never played the RTS games before. I just don't think MMO games were made for story, so it couldn't be more incorrect (the authors assumption that they read into lore).

RPG players yes, but as soon as you add in that MMO element, you're dealing with a whole new crowd.

Like comparing Skyrim to Final Fantasy.
