As consumers, we've been programmed to worship the newest and greatest thing. Just witness the near-hysteria as people stand in lines for days just to get the latest iPhone. We've been constantly told that newer and high-tech is the only way to go. "Look! My new cell phone is five percent smaller and has a camera that's ten percent better than the one in my old phone!

In a perfect world, the mmos that we love to play would last forever, but that is seldom the case. It seems that the games we care about the most and pour our hearts into are the ones t...

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...
