    So does an MMORPG NEED PvP to be fun? All popular games gave a great PvP system behind it, and is PvP the thing that makes games popular and fun?

    If you have an opinion that is not on the list, pls post bellow :)

    I say 'No', PvP is not necessary, of course in an MMO you have to be able to play together, but for me co-op play is fun enough :)

    PvP is actually my least favorite thing MMO. In fact I will very seldom even play an MMO if it only has PVP only servers.

    It really depends on the game in my opinion.

    I would have never played Aika as long as I have, without the PVP system in there.

    Ditto. I'm not a fan of PVP. I'd rather spend my time questing/grinding rather than pk/kill players. :(

    I voted yet, because solid PvP will help most games because PVP attracts many gamers.

    For me, it depends on the game. If the game is like Hello Kitty Online which is too girly/kiddie-ish, I don't think PvP is that important (or even needed). :)

    besides kiddie games and virtual worlds for hanging out, every mmo needs a pvp option.

    I say no because with PVP comes more rage and people who are just PO'd all the time. This is just in general anyway...

    Optional pvp? Perfectly fine. If I want to fight someone else, I can. But required pvp I don't like.

    IMO, PVP is better at testing skill than PVE.

    It depends. I prefer PWE, but sometimes I have a feeling, to test my abilities against other players, and go for an arena game like Bloodline Champions. It can be really fun when you have teammates. :)

    I rarely play MMO's with PVP but whenever I feel like it, I enjoy the thrill of killing or (most of the time) being hunted & killed ^^;

    It depends on the game.

    I prefer PVE, although I play PVP every once in a while in arenas just to experience something different from time to time.

    Also, although PVP is not necessarily required, it does get more people since a lot of people love PVP. Games sometimes incorporate PVP for the sake of getting those players. To PVEers, I don't think it would be harmful in any way. Or at least as long as PVPers are not given bonuses like PVP-only gears and items.

    pvp would not be needed if there is a gripping enough story and gameplay for pve, i have yet to find a good enough pve game to satisfy me. the closest any game has come is DDO

    It depends on the game.

    Some games require them, some games doesnt really need them. It all boils down if PvP is adequate...
