Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game

Massively multiplayer online role-playing games are a combination of role-playing video games and massively multiplayer online games in which a very large number of players interact with one another within a virtual world. As in all role-playing games or RPGs, the player assumes the role of a character and takes control over many of that character's actions. MMORPGs are distinguished from single-player or small multi-player online RPGs by the number of players able to interact together, and by the game's persistent world, which continues to exist and evolve while the player is offline and away from the game. MMORPGs are played throughout the world. Worldwide revenues for MMORPGs exceeded half a billion dollars in 2005, and Western revenues exceeded a billion dollars in 2006. In 2008, the spending on subscription MMORPGs by consumers in North America and Europe grew to $1.4 billion.World of Warcraft, a popular MMORPG, has over 10 million subscribers as of November 2014.
