I've seen minecraft servers with over 500 people. That makes it MMO in my book. Certainly more MMO than Diablo 3.

yup servers can hold qutie a few players and they are persistant, and have rpg mods that basically make them a full blown mmorpg.. deserves to be here a lot more than some of the other games.

Eh... hard to say. Minecraft servers (As mentioned) do tend to have more players and connectivity then games like Diablo 3 and can have quite large communities. I'd say considering the loose definition of MMo, it can more then match up as an MMo. Heck, it even can match up depending on the server in plenty of different catagories from being sandbox (standerd style gameplay or even with mods) to being fantasy/adventurer (few servers like that) over-all its quite an interesting beast.

 

Considering how loose the term "MMO" is (which I honestly feel its fine with judging it that way) I have no problem with Minecraft being considered one. Its a great game and you can find some very popular servers out there with hundreds of players online all at once.

Most of the games on this site aren't MMO's nowadays.

They stopped caring long ago. :P Surprised this wasn't on hte listings sooner.

i feel like they are really "reaching" on this one for a title of mmo.....

if you put minecraft on here why not put games like starcraft on the site as well, a ton of people can play that game on the same server and they have custom games that hold a lot of people as well.

Starcraft can only do 8 players per map, a map which is destoryed at the end of the game.  Quake shooter maps are not an MMO. Persistant worlds are what makes an MMO.  I've played on a Minecraft sever for about a year now, 6 or 7 ppl at the most are on.

To be fair, what makes and MMO is ...... get ready for it..... MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE!! Whcih by my definition is a shit ton of people, and not necessarily a persistant world. However, one might argue that the persistant world is required for the RPG aspect of it.

Minecraft is a helluva lot more MMO than 90% of the lobby crap that's on this site. Just because you've never played Minecraft on a 500 player RPG server doesn't mean it's not capable of that.

Just another MMORPG Failure. Remember Hellgate London? Not an MMORPG. Minecraft is not an MMORPG. This decision will not bring new people to this website and just ticks the points away from this sites credibility.

There's a difference between MO and MMO...an 8 to 24 player server is a Multiplayer game, not a Massively Multiplayer Online game; Minecraft, while among my favorite games that I still currently play, does NOT belong on this site in any manner unless someone's started up a massive, no-grief, no-dupes, policies-enforced server that can handle hundreds if not thousands of players.

Srsly mmorpg.com, srsly?

... Theres servers with 200+ people on it on minecraft though, and plenty of MMos listed that only have (D3 as an easy example) 4 people in a game at a time.

Oh, good grief. Minecraft isn't an MMO, dur. It is, however, of interest to many people who play MMOs, so it's on this website.

Now they just need to add a "Feed The Beast" section under the Minecraft subforum.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Any multiplayer game I think that is somewhat popular is a candidate for this site these days.
