The Moment of the MMO Has Passed

After playing Wildstar, Ian Williams of Paste Magazine argues that MMOs will never be as vital as they were ten years ago because the internet now offers so many different ways to fill social voids. (PC, Wildstar, World of Warcraft)

Mr. Ian Williams, have you not seen the latest trend in gaming? MMOs are expanding. The console generation has just started receiving MMO's on their platforms. The Division and Destiny are just two of the MMO's working there way to consoles. MMO does mean Massive Multiplayer Online, which could also mean a whole bunch of games like Titanfall if you really look at it.

I agree with what your saying, though I have no idea where the Titanfall comment you made came from.

A lot of people like to say that Titanfall doesn't fit under the "MMO" genre, when it really does, same with Destiny.

Not trying to be rude, but why the hell would anyone label TF under the mmo genre? TF has nothing to do with MMOs, and in no way is this on the same level with Destiny. Its just an online shooter, like the CoDs before. I am not comparing it in no way to CoD (nor am I saying its a bad game), but I'm just saying, TF is definitely not an mmo.
