Could exit path technically be called an MMO? Or bad eggs even? Because there are lots of people playing together on multiplayer... and mmo is massively multiplayer :P

When people say MMO, I think they usually mean (M)assive (M)ultiplayer (O)nline (R)ole (P)laying (G)ames.

Usually yes, but here, where flash games are involved, it's a different topic. there's a difference between MMORPGs, MMOFPSs, etc.
I agree with the fact that exit path could and should become an MMO on AG, I see no reason why not.

But Exit Path has a single player mode. That's the difference.

You guys are forgetting Colony but eh Colony is always forgotten.

I was thinking that as well but like Salvidian said they both have single player options. But yeah I guess they could be called MMOs. Also I guess SSL2 has the firing range, which is kinda single-player.

@Salvidian

But why would it matter if it still has a multiplayer mode? Like is colony an MMO it's a good multiplayer game also...

And SSL sort of has a single player- The firing range so... :P

no, those games are just multiplayer.
if you think exit path is an MMO, you have the wrong thoughts in your head.
1: ep2 has single player. MMO's dont
2: ep2 is a FLASH GAME
3: it is multiplayer, but only with lobbies. MMO's dont usally have lobbies (exept league of legends)
4: it is browser based, therefore it really isnt an MMO. AG does suggest it has browser MMO's, however i think its only MMO if it must be downloaded/

No, because it has a game-based single player, and most of the features in single player are seen in Multiplayer. It's not necessarily a single player oriented game, but there's too many single player elements in it to be considered an MMO.

2: ep2 is a FLASH GAME

MMO's are based on flash too.

4: it is browser based, therefore it really isnt an MMO. AG does suggest it has browser MMO's, however i think its only MMO if it must be downloaded/

RuneScape is browser based, yet it's considered an MMO.

MMO's are Multiplayer oriented. Exit Path is oriented on single and Multiplayer.
