I am sure many of you have happened to come across some MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). It is an intoxicating world of huge numbers of players interacting with one another and playing all together in one enormous map. MMORPGs are nowadays famous and valued all around the world, because of the extremely rare opportunity they provide. It is an exciting experience full of adrenaline, color, and adventure.
What exactly is an MMORPG? The basic principle is on a type of developing character. Each player registers his own character, with the characteristics that he wants, and in most games, with different powers and abilities that he chooses. Then, step by step, with adventures and tasks throughout the map (the map of the game’s world) he evolves his character by winning virtual (and actual) experience, new powers and weapons, and a whole lot of unlockables. As you progress with the game, your character becomes stronger and stronger, and you find yourself everyday a little better toward the other players.
As you play, social interaction with the other players is achievable through many means, depending on the game. First of all, almost all the games provide you with a kind of in-game messenger, so that you can write to the others whatever it is you want to tell them. But nowadays, many games have many means possible, that outshine messaging, like microphones and headphones, which connect all of you together, and enable you to talk as if there were truly in front of you. So, you can talk to their character, and he answers you, just like if he were there. Full anonymity is guaranteed throughout the game, in any way you choose to react with the other players, except of course if you choose to give out any of you personal information, which is of course not recommended.
Most of massively multiplayer games, are based on traditional fantasy themes, like ancient mythology, which makes the whole experience even more magical! Many games try to mingle different themes, like mythology combined with science fiction, or crime fiction combined with american comic series. It is not always successful, but often times, amazing games came out of such combinations, and there are a few games out there that you could say that are truly artistic.

You can get online with a bought version of the game in the comfort of your own home, on your personal computer, or you can go to an internet café, which will provide you with the pc, the game, and the connection for a small fee per hour.
