Definition Edit

The most popular type of massively multiplayer online game (MMO), and the sub-genre that pioneered the category, is the massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), which descended from university mainframe computer MUD and adventure games such as Rogue and Dungeon on the PDP-10. These games pre-date the commercial gaming industry and the Internet, but still featured persistent worlds and other elements of MMOGs still used today.

"MMORPGs allow users to create avatars, or graphical representations of themselves, that exist within a digital world and interact with other avatars around the globe to carry out tasks."[1]
