What is an MMORPG? If you’re reading this site, you probably have an answer ready to go, but you probably know more than a few people who haven’t the slightest idea about what MMORPGs actually are. So why not let someone else explain it for you? The latest episode of Crash Course Gaming on YouTube covers the MMORPG genre, from the earliest days of online gaming to more modern titles.
Obviously, there’s only so much that can be covered in an eight-minute video, but it’s a good quick overview of the history and future of MMORPGs. So the next time your mother asks what MMORPGs are, you can tell her to sit right down while she watches an eight-minute YouTube video. Hey, you might even learn something yourself.
