The Trouble with MMORPGs 403

Posted by michael
from the lack-of-tribbles dept.
jasoncart writes "The trouble with MMORPGs is a humorous account of one gamer's struggle to find and assume his place in the rapidly evolving societies which form a part of the online RPG explosion. Ultimately, it is also a lament for the loss of direction that is the scourge of the genre."

    If this genre doesn't die soon you can get ready for GENERATION LARD - kids who will spend 18 hours a day having sex chat under the auspices of slaying dragons. While they will quickly get over the psychological issues of male/male sex chat posing as teenage lesbian sex chat, it will be hard for them to physically cope with excessive masturbation being their only form of exercise.

This is a place to return again and again, each time for a different experience. You're really going to have to play it for a year or two and see for yourself. -- "Fatal Distractions" by David Gerrold Thank you for the latest release of gradewrecker.
