OP  8/16/09 8:10:48 AM#1

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury....

 

Oh...wait... this is a pre-trial?  Okay then...

Recently there have been several theads where the definition of an MMO has been raised.  Instancing is a contenious issue.
So, I guess it comes down to how you define an MMO?
MMORPG.com lists the following criteria
Does it meet our requirements?

1. Make sure that the game isn't already on our list. We know that this sounds simple, but there are a lot of them and sometimes they get overlooked.
2. The game should have the capability to support at least 500 congruent users on a single server. This is not a reflection of the game's current subscriber count, but rather reflects the capabilities of a game's technology.
3. The game must include some form of common area where players can interact with one another inside of the persistent game world. This excludes lobby and chat room based interaction. Exceptions are made where logical (such as sports MMOs) that still fit within the spirit of what an MMO is.
4. The game must make use of persistent characters. This means that you should be able to log in after logging out and find your character as advanced as you left them (or more).
5. The game must contain some form of advancement.

So, what do we need in order to list the game?

When submitting a game to MMORPG.com for review for our Game List, we require the following:

* A visual representation of the game
* A transparent .psd of your game's logo
* A textual overview of your game
* A professional website, name of publisher, name of developer, press contact information.
* It can also be helpful (but is not required) to provide us with a 1,000 word + developer journal introducing the MMORPG.com readers to your game. Just a general overview of what the game is about and some information about what you feel are the stand-out features of your game.

*A visual representation of the game

3-5 Screenshots: These screenshots must be in-engine, un-doctored screenshots. They must be representative of what a player would see when playing the game.

or

A Gameplay video: The short video does not have to be gameplay only, but should contain a significant and obvious example of un-altered gameplay footage

*Website Requirements

All games to be listed at MMORPG.com must have an active, professional website. The site must be completely free of pop-up ads and spyware.

In the case of an active or in-beta game, the site must also provide access to some kind of user support system including, but not limited to: developer active help / support forums, direct petition system or support contact email.

Exception:

MMORPG.com will occasionally make an exception to the above visual representation rules only if the following conditions are met:

1. User demand for the game's listing is high enough to warrant the decision (as decided by MMORPG.com staff).
2. The game is being developed by a professional, well known, registered company.
3. Personal contact has been made between MMORPG.com editorial staff and the studio in quesiton.

So, I want to play Devil's Advocate and make the case for FARM TOWN.

Should MMORPG.com list Farm Town as an MMORPG and is it an MMORPG?

1. Make sure that the game isn't already on our list. We know that this sounds simple, but there are a lot of them and sometimes they get overlooked.
Not listed.  Check.


2. The game should have the capability to support at least 500 congruent users on a single server. This is not a reflection of the game's current subscriber count, but rather reflects the capabilities of a game's technology.
March 31, 2009

Some basic stats:

* Farm Town launched on February 1st. (we did some testing in 1/31).
* Over two million monthly active users.
* We have 550K visitors per day, and we are growing about 10-20% daily.
* The game is running on 11 servers, and we are adding 1-2 per week.

3. The game must include some form of common area where players can interact with one another inside of the persistent game world. This excludes lobby and chat room based interaction. Exceptions are made where logical (such as sports MMOs) that still fit within the spirit of what an MMO is.
Marketplace

A Map icon at the bottom of the main screen facilitates a trip to the marketplace, where harvested crops are sold. Other players also congregate there for the opportunity to be hired to harvest or plow, which earns coins. The marketplace is also where animals, trees, plants and all other objects can be sold.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm_Town
(There is also an Inn and a Real Estate Office.)
 


4. The game must make use of persistent characters. This means that you should be able to log in after logging out and find your character as advanced as you left them (or more).
Gameplay

Each user creates a personal avatar and receives a tract of land ...
As the player accumulates experience and coins, they rise to higher levels which reveal more options, permitting the purchase of more land, improvements and buildings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farm_Town
 


5. The game must contain some form of advancement.
See #4 above


So, what do we need in order to list the game?

When submitting a game to MMORPG.com for review for our Game List, we require the following:

* A visual representation of the game

* A transparent .psd of your game's logo

(I am sure the Devs would happily supply a better one!)


* A textual overview of your game
The User Guide


* A professional website, name of publisher, name of developer, press contact information.
http://r1.slashkey.com/
This is a Facebook Application.  Emails are available for all this.


* It can also be helpful (but is not required) to provide us with a 1,000 word + developer journal introducing the MMORPG.com readers to your game. Just a general overview of what the game is about and some information about what you feel are the stand-out features of your game.
Not required but there is a forum here with Dev notes.


*A visual representation of the game

3-5 Screenshots: These screenshots must be in-engine, un-doctored screenshots. They must be representative of what a player would see when playing the game.
Google Images enough for you?
Results 1 - 21 of about 9,840

or

A Gameplay video: The short video does not have to be gameplay only, but should contain a significant and obvious example of un-altered gameplay footage
Type Farm Town into You Tube.


*Website Requirements

All games to be listed at MMORPG.com must have an active, professional website. The site must be completely free of pop-up ads and spyware.

In the case of an active or in-beta game, the site must also provide access to some kind of user support system including, but not limited to: developer active help / support forums, direct petition system or support contact email.
Link posted above and forum offers support


Exception:

MMORPG.com will occasionally make an exception to the above visual representation rules only if the following conditions are met:

1. User demand for the game's listing is high enough to warrant the decision (as decided by MMORPG.com staff).
Millions of users.


2. The game is being developed by a professional, well known, registered company.
Slashkey and Facebook


3. Personal contact has been made between MMORPG.com editorial staff and the studio in quesiton.

Well, based on the evidence submitted so far... I would hope so?
 

 

So, there you are.
 

Based on the evidence I would suggest that Farm Town meets MMORPG.com's requirements?

So, does this mean that Farm Town should be listed?

 

I await the case against...

Sure, I say list it.

Hell, have a look at all the games that this site already has listed; I don't recognise (and have no interest in) about 90% of them anyway, so what's one more on the pile?

My wife loves that game/application/plug-in ...what ever it is. There is also a near exact clone of it called "Farmville",..go figure.

Yeah, facebook has alot of those. heh, I'm playing one of them on another tab right now, lol. And quite a few of my friends play them religiously. Some even have PvP in that you attack other Facebook players/members.

If you put in Farm Town, you'll have to add about 1,000 other flash games that have an online component and can be found on facebook or sites like pogo.com.

FWIW there is also one called "Farm Buddies" I think that actually features PvP Farming!

But anyway, stop dodging the case.

Is it an MMORPG?

Yes... so?

I suppose so.  MMORPG should probably amend the requirements to include a clause against flash games run by social websites.

I don't think there's any value in cluttering up the website with these games, but then again maybe I'm wrong.  My roommate loves playing a gardening version of this game and maybe she'd like to talk about it on a forum.  Who knows.

Why?  And what amendment should be made exactly?
I ask because one point often raised by people here is that 'the definition of MMORPGs is evolving' - so are games like this simply the evolution of the genre?

One day those flash games can be as complex and massively multiplayer as the mainstream MMORPGs are today. I thought there was a company that was already about to do that? Provide MMOs that are playable through a flash window.

"Easy" only equals "better" for crack addicts and MMORPG developers.

Oh...you are serious? LOL....I thought this was some kinda odd joke. My wife plays farmville or some crap like that on facebook. We already have 100's of crappy f2p games listed on this site. And the constant ads and contests for f2p game items. Why do we serously need more crap added?

I could go and list about another 30 or so legit f2p MMOs that aren't here. The site can't list and support every game on the web. Would just make more work for mods...which are already kept busy with all the spam and gold sellers that have been flocking here.

No joke.

 

Read the original post.  This game appears to meet the requirements to be listed on MMORPG.com.  That being the case - why shouldn't it be listed?

You use the word 'crap'?  Please detail why Farm town is "crap" exactly?  Or, more to the point, please define why you think it is not an MMORPG and should not be listed here?

Interesting.

So maybe just saying "no flash games" doesn't work as a definition between what is am MMORPG and what isn't?

So, does this support that Farm Town is an MMORPG?

Where does it say that?

I was just looking at Hello Kitty Online and the isometric appearence is the same?

Yes, I do realise how many games are out there like this... but that is not the point.  Is it an MMORPG?  If not, why not?

I was being a smart azz about the fine print of 3d..I don't think we need 1000s of flash games on mmorpg.com..I believe this site was intended for games like Lotr,Eve,War hammer,AOC,etc,etc you get the picture...Shall we add Browser games as well, along with the Flash games?But in again who knows it might bring more Trolls and Fanboys player to this site..

My only complaint at this point is that here, on MMORPG.com, no-one seems to be prepared to say "That game is NOT an MMORPG game because...."

Seriously, do you all think this game is a MMORPG?

If so, the bright side is that based on numbers... we have a WoW KILLER!

The Game is MMORPG..But it belongs in its own Category.This site is not set up for 1000s of flash games that are so called mmorpg.And further more these games should not be mixed in with the "Normal" mmorpg games anyway
