Well lets define MMO, the MMO initials themselves mean Massively multiplayer online game (O.O). I have been playing MMO'S for roughly 5 years now (i will post my list of the mmos i have played in a later post) but have been playing video games in general since I was 8 years old (I'm 19 now almost 20) and I acquired my first console (ugh I will discuss later on why the UGH) which was the SNES (super nintendo entertainment system) with Super Mario World =_=". Well you can say I have a history of gaming, but my time nowadays is devoted to pwning people that are older, younger and of the different sex in MMO'S. I say that MMO'S are soon to take over the gaming industry(the next gen consoles WII, 360 etc all have online compatible games), and will at some point play a role in the way we live (which is already being done).
In my opinion MMO'S are far more entertaining, and involving then single player console games in which the games revolve around that one character or cast of characters and every thing is preprogrammed/designed to happen a certain way. MMO'S success drives from the fact that everything is happening in Real Time and your actually playing against or with OTHER HUMAN
One more thing my friends call me 'J' so feel free to do so.
