360 Magazine: How Bethesda Softworks has turned TES V: Skyrim into an MMORPG.
Is Skyrim An Offline MMO? It's not. It's a massive open world rpg. It doesnt replicate like .HACK titles did where it simulated an MMO or Phantasy Star Online could do. But I see a little bit of the articles point. It's freaking massive.
They're referring to the hours put into MMO's that console gamers despise. Not replicating an MMO. They say that in the first few sentences of the article...
This is a dumb question. If it's an offline game then obviously it's not an MMO. Call it what it is, an open world RPG.
Surely it's a Massively Single-Player Role Playing Game. Or MSPRPG. I've patented that, by the way.
At least the quests are very MMO-like: Deliver something, kill something or talk to someone. Infact, the quests in World of Warcraft (after the Cataclysm) are overall much more varied and interesting than those in Skyrim.
Yes! No! Maybe! Does it matter!? Why must I shout!?
Can't think why you're only allowed one comment.
Can't think why your allowed 5....
Is FIFA an RTS?
Its a stat-heavy adventure game.
I dont think the know what MMO stands for. Just like the people who think anything in first person is instantly a FPS. Even when it does not have any shooting in it.
I don't think the(onlylolking) knows how to click through to read the article.
FAG - Freaking awesome game
Getting kind of sick of skyrim and mw3 articles to much overload, surely other things are happening.
to put it simply, no. This should be reported for a retarded headline.
nope,it's an open world rpg.
Label it whatever you want just make sure to add amazing and fantastic to it.
im tired of stupid people
I don't care what the article says or how they try to spin it. You can't have an MMO if it's not online.
