Debate: Role-Playing in MMORPGs

Posted Feb 18, 2006 by Dana Massey

Debate: Role-Playing in MMORPGs

They're back! Garrett and Frank continue their weekly debate series today with the question of role-playing in MMORPGs. Garrett wants to see less discussion of taxes and more in-character discussion - they are mmoRPGs afterall. Frank doesn't agree.

Garrett Fuller: Part of the fun of pencil and paper role-playing is acting out your character’s actions. I can remember endless nights of D&D yelling and screaming as my wemic fighter. So, why is it in today’s MMORPG games there is such a lack of role-playing? I am currently playing Warcraft. I play an orc which I think is great. I try to run around, be angry, kill any players I come across, the usual orc stuff. Yet, I find myself in guild chat talking about my bills, weekends, and work. Trust me it’s not that I want to talk about those subjects, it just seems to happen.

Read on, then let us know where you stand!
