  • People who play characters of the opposite gender
  • RMT
  • How I could design a better MMORPG than any of these studios
  • Permadeath
  • Hardcore/raiders vs. casuals
  • Whether or not open betas are actually betas at all, or just marketing previews
  • Trying to define what a “massively” multiplayer online role-playing game is, arguing about whether a game fits this non-standard definition of a MMO, and griping that “MMO” doesn’t really mean anything anyway
  • What open beta “means”
  • F2P and how much you love/hate it

  1. Jeez, Syp. Way to cut down 90% of the topic selection. What’s next, no more writing about how WoW is the great evil of the genre?

  2. So should we expect tomorrow’s post to cover the travesty of Trammel and how the carebears “ruined” online gaming?

  3. All PvP’ers are psychopathic bullies who pull wings off flies and set fire to kittens / all non-PvP’ers are stupid carebears who should go and play The Sims.

  4. Since when do girls play games? My kin leader in LOTRO & guild leader in WOW are so not girls. ;)

  6. I do think there is one more you are missing, the “playing alone together” phenomenon and it’s lovers and haters. Excellent list.

  7. Open free for all PvP: because the advocates of this apparently enjoy being ganked at any moment and so should you!

  9. I think according to blogger’s union bylaws, you’re allowed to go after any three of those topics (or the additional suggestions) without facing a review by the board, and that you may further address any of those topics once under the guise of making your position on them known.

    After that, you may only delve into any of those topics if you are either responding to somebody elses post on that subject and you’ve strayed beyond the reasonable length of a comment or you have a close, personal, and obvious to all reason for rehashing a given topic.

    And that last one can have you up in front of the review committee unless you can document your reasoning.

  10. Hah, doesn’t stop you guys at massively from bringing one of those topics up when it’s a slow news day, huh? For dead horses they generate a lot of traffic.

  11. “Girls play MMORPGs? What?”
    - Girl = female/women or…
    Any big deal on that? I’m one of those females who have the passion of online gaming.

    Whether we like it or not, those topics will go on and on as long as MMO is here.

  12. “Girls play MMORPGs? What?”
    - Girl = female/women or…
    GIRL = Guys In Real Life?
    Anyhow, does this really matter? Any big deal on this? I’m one of those females who have the passion of playing mmorpgs, and I do enjoy playing ‘em.

    And… whether we like it or not, these topics will go on and on as long as MMO is here. The MMO life it is…
