    MMORPG is a massively multiplayer role playing game and a RPG is a single player or limited multiplayer role playing game. MMORPG is just a sub genre of RPG so yes technically they are the same... however most MMORPG are really really lacking in the RPG department.

    RPG is a role-playing game and is usually either single player or co-op. it includes games like Oblivion.

    MMORPG is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game like World at Pocket Mafia where you role play a character while playing with or against other people from around the world.

    Is there any differences? Maybe RPG is smaller than MMORPG.

    this already covered the question.

    In my experience, MMORPG are more of multiplayer most likely on PC platforms. While RPG are more of console games. However, nowadays console offers MMORPG feature like xbox and playstation does.
