Has MMO become a dirty label? It seems to be for TESO: Tamriel Unlimited

Dealspwn: "It's clear that they're angling more towards Elder Scrolls fans than MMO fans, but we'll have to wait a couple of months to see if that's something reflected in the game itself or just a relatively empty proclamation that every prospective pre-ordering fan wants to hear."

I think it's a smart move to try and downplay the MMO angle for the console versions. A great many console players just want 'more TES' or 'Skyrim with mates,' but perhaps already shy away from taking the plunge in MMORPGs or feel that MMORPGs aren't 'for them.'

However, I don't think 'MMO' is a dirty word overall - in fact we're seeing loads of games pretending to be MMOs! Destiny and The Crew hide behind the label to justify weak story/progression, always-online DRM and other grievances, and it's a trend that's sure to continue. Just my 2c.

When I read MMO I run for the hills. So for me at least its toxic. Could be the greatest game in the galaxy and Id completely miss it.
