MMORPGs

It stands for Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games-- online role-playing games that in some cases (like World of Warcraft) involve millions of competitors. If you’re clueless about MMORPGs, Kim Komando’s intro to these virtual worlds will help you get up to speed on the subject:

NOTE: Why should you care about MMORPGs? Well, you don’t really need to, unless you’ve got children (or adults who think young) living in your home…

NOTE NO. 2: Although, my friends, I’m guessing it’s a matter of time before an MMORPG designed specifically for historians / family historians is unveiled-- one in which you can wallow to your heart’s content in a specific historical period of interest, and actually interact with avatars representing your own ancestors…

NOTE NO. 3: If that historical MMORPG includes a Civil War module, I may never see daylight again…

NOTE NO. 4: Actually, there are numerous other historical periods I could also happily wallow in…

NOTE NO. 5: I'm assuming that in these virtual worlds we won't be able to SMELL our ancestors. Their hygiene was not usually up to modern standards...
