It is a common term for a popular online game. MMORPG refers to games that feature millions of players occupying the same game world. Most MMORPGs are adventure games. The players can be people or computerized bots. MMOs are usually one of the following:

  • Pay-To-Play (P2P). With B2P, the MMO is usually bought via a monthly subscription. B2P games can also include an initial fee.
