The game is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, or MMORPG. More than 11.5 million reasonably rational people pay about NZ$20 a month to subscribe.
With a game population like this, you wouldn't be surprised to learn that it's the world's largest MMORPG (by number of subscribers) and it holds the Guinness World Record for most popular MMORPG, but perhaps most importantly, it has had a whole South Park episode dedicated to it, among other cultural references. It's kind of a big deal."
