Massive multiplayer online game, or simplified MMO or MMOG are the sort of games that support a large number of players, who can simultaneously play at the same time, forging a large community of people in one place. MMO-s today are supported on almost every device from computers to smart phones.

Since these games are becoming more popular every year and more people are actually buying and paying to play, it became one of the fastest spreading addictions all over the world. The game providers are constantly offering new material and stuff to do, giving the infinite exploration and achievements in-game.

Games are usually very seductive and their main purpose is to occupy you for as long as possible, and they have a psychological influence on the player. One can speculate that the people with low self-esteem could find their passion and freedom in these environments, but if that is the case, there is a risk of becoming obsessed with the virtual world.

People who get addicted to MMO-s, invest a lot of time and money in the virtual world, neglecting their lives, jobs and family so they could dedicate their selves to the game. In some cases the player makes in game relations and they might manage to meet in reality, if it’s not too late for it…
