If you simply researched your claim you would notice that this whole “MMORTS - MMOFPS - (and others alike)” are not “Real” genres. They are re-defining words that have been given meaning by fan bases.
That is like saying - The word Magnificent doesn’t just mean impressive… in fact, there are other words like Magnifichant (meaning a great chant or shout) - and Magnifirant (Meaning a great rant or argument). And we all know those don’t exist However, the abuse is the same. Re-defining an already established definition by chopping it in half and adding whatever you feel like to create some hybrid genre is fine. But it’s not the technical, initial, historical meaning.
If you simply researched where MMORPG came from and the history of this genre going all the way back to the late 70’s - early 80’s you would quickly realize the first game that created this Genre was an MMORPG, There was no such genre as MMOFPS, MMORTS, etc.
And there will never be. That is because as a game expands in it’s capabilities, freedoms, etc, the final and most open genre it can achieve (In all it’s glory) is MMORPG. An RPG is suppose to define the limitless bounds of you having the ability to “Forge” your own path in a free, interactable, and social world.
What you are doing is combining Visual Genre with Game Genre. Which isn’t technically correct.
Did you know FPS isn’t a game genre? Things like (Action, Horror, Adventure) are Game Genre. (FPS, 3rd Person, Top Down), are all Visual Genre. “The point of view in which you experience something”
Your whole argument is trying to prove that “Technically” smashing genre’s together is really what has been going on since day one. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
That is like trying to say, “I am going to play an FPSHorror”. There is nothing wrong with saying this in the fact that - Yes, it is an FPS and a Horror game. Therefore you chose to slam the words together in order to describe what you are going to experience. But to argue that is “Technically correct” is just odd to me.
Anyway, I have said my piece. Hybrid Genre that slam visual genre with gaming genre, and claim technical truths are beyond me. Not even sure why I felt the need to respond O.o this is a pretty pointless topic to argue over.
