Aren't they objects in a game? Assets, as it were? Do they move? Sounds to me like they are, in fact, Mobile OBjects. Unlike other assets like buildings, vehicles, and the like that do not move.

MMOs are a 3-D graphical front end for a database.  Poke at Wikipedia for "object oriented design" and "MUD" and the difference should be apparent.  :)

Toon, themepark, hand holding (or any variation), rails, linear, grind, revolutionize, game breaking, overpowered, pally/illy/anything cut short and made cutesy sounding, wow killer, wow clone, bro, butthurt, rig, anything to do with beer, anything to do with mma, NGE, vanilla, vent...

 

Gosh, if I had played a MMO in the past 6 months, I could come up with a lot more... But seriously, reading chat in any mmo generally grinds my gears... Mixed martial arts and which beer is better is brought up every night in every game I've played. Also, the typical "In wow I had a 80 ___ with _________, so I know what I'm talking about."

I wish people would start saying WoW clone instead of themepark, because we all know thats what they really mean.

"quality sandbox" - pipe dream

"SWG" & "Meridian 59" - I've heard more people claim to play both than there ever were active players in each.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

@Dauntis - taking notes?

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

I was fond of 'critturs'.  Mobs always sounded like they should be robots.  :shrug:

"Exterminate!"  Early 8-bit game training, I guess.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

QFT, ERP, and then people who make fun of stuff like 9/11 or mass school shootings, etc.

I'll kick your a**e so hard, you could build a swimming pool in the footprint!

I have a few:

'WoW Clone' -used when said person  doesn't like a themepark style game but feels the need to enter a discussion without any knowledge of the the game their critising

'Dynamic'- used to defend a static game event or feature, because said defender has bought into a developers marketing.

'Content'- I hate this term alround, it doesn't mean anything in the abstract:

 'Oh this game has so much content!',

'This game has so little content!'

What does it mean exactly? It has lots of stuff/or not basically. Having lots of something doesn't make it really a confirmation of a fun game experience, or of how the systems within the game work. It just a definition of volume and doesn't justify being used so much to define a games worth.

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

This.

If you say anything negative about a game now you're either a 'hater' or feeling 'entitled'.

    In game the word that bothers me most is when other players call everyone "noob"

On forums I think f2p, p2p, b2p, and p2w

"U Mad"

"U Jelly"

"Pl0x"

"Toon"

"Entitle(d/ment)"

"Lag" when referring to framerate issues.

"/thread"

"MMO" to describe games where the only thing massive is the chat room and/or town hub before you enter instanced play areas.

"Rouge" and "Solider", among other misspellings.

In fact the whole mmorpg-terminology is a ridiculous joke and established by people who take themselves and gaming way too serious.

Plox.

 

Everything else doesn't bother me, but this damn word just makes me want to smash my head into my keyboard everytime I see it used.  I get everything else, gank, noob, raped, u mad? and countless others.  They all at least make sense.  How plox even came to be popular boggles my mind.  That, and I find most the noobs who say it generally suck at the game anyways. I can handle pls or plz but man, plox just sounds stupid.

  • innovative
  • "Meridian 59" when used imply that, having played this game, you are a vastly superior authority on MMO gaming.

  • "most players" when they really mean "I"
  • Pay2win

Awful lot of butthurt in this thread.

 

U mad, bros?
