    Good idea for a poll, Super:). MMOs allow players to interact with other players more than other games. That is why they have been popular all these years and why this site was started almost a decade ago.

    Thanks :)
    True, they are next level of games, and i'm sure, in future we will see only online games with huge battles with gigantic people population :)
    TERA's political system is a huge step forward :)

    I voted for Community as well. Not that I chat a ton in MMOs, but it's just a nice change of pace to play a game with other people instead of a lonely NPC world.

    The interaction you get with other people, and by the time you get 1/2 way into a single player game you already understand basically how all NPCs will react.

    Because, I fancy playing games where you build and grow your character.
     
  19. I would say the importance of an MMO, particularly an MMORPG, above anything else is community. In other games, you don't really hang out or chat with other players (e.g. offline games), and it can be hard to focus on certain games (e.g. shooters, MOBAs, etc.), especially if you want to have casual conversations in those kinds of games. PvP is important as well just so players don't grow of boredom and quit, and MMOs do demonstrate change for players because they're generally fun to play.
