How do I need to elaborate? They are not MMORPGs. MMORPGs is a certain type of game, Guildwars is not that.

It's like asking my to explain why Zelda isn't an RPG. Because it isn't?

Zelda isn't an RPG because it's an adventure game. The line is sort of clear on that. There was an RPG one - Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link - but the rest are adventure, with a few negligible RPG elements: That certainly does not make them RPGs and everyone knows this.

Can you explain what makes Guild Wars not an MMORPG?

Because it's an MORPG, not an MMORPG.

Come to think, you're right! I wonder if that was the bit Acend was talking about...

Guild Wars is the closest you can get to an MMO with out technically being an MMO.

Really damn close.

Not even NCSoft or the games makers considers it an MMORPG...considering this an MMORPG is like considering Diablo an MMORPG (and don't because if you do I will take away your internets!)

ArenaNet calls the Guild Wars games competitive online role-playing games (CORPGs)

That's not to say it isn't close, because it certainly is--like we've established. No need to come in here and be all elitist prick about it.

Yeah, these aren't MMO's. They're practically 3D versions of Diablo. And instead of expansion packs there's just a new full-priced game every year.
