Top five most irritating mmo player types
One thing that continually fascinates me when playing mmorpg games is the gamers playing the game. I've always found it amusing that every person assumes that every other person playing the game will play it exactly the way that they do and have the same goals. This will never happen, of course, because each player is unique, and, as such, we all have different needs and wants from the online games that we love to play. It would be nice to say th...
