There are specific servers meant for hardcore RPG'ers. They speak and play as if they are their avatars. You can actually be reported and punished if you act too out of character.

Something tells me you've never even played the game for any reasonable amount of time. Stop forming your opinion about it from ignorance and hearsay.

Different MMORPGs have different play styles

They're all fun in their own ways.

Ah, makes sense now.

Instead of going by the definition of the acronym itself (a game in which people role play) to define whether it is or not, you have an elitist attitude where anything unlike DnD is not an RPG.

Well I choose to call it what it is instead of making up my own definitions out of snobbiness.

One of the reasons I got into out WOW was because it was something like NVN, but online and I could play with with friends.

RPG has evolved from its traditional meaning. Nowadays any game that gives you an inventory and a role in a story regardless of your character's notoriety is an RPG. MMOs have stories. WoW has a very engrossing story, I've read probably all there is to read from Wowwiki about its lore. Story alone doesn't define an RPG in the traditional sense. In single-player RPGs you assume a deep role over the story. Your character in an MMO lacks permanent influence over the story. MMOs by nature rely on replay value of conquering the same content week after week, so influencing story given the circumstances isn't easy to do with an MMO. I think Star Wars: ToR may be the first MMO with single-player storytelling given BioWare's veteran experience at those games.

Reminds me of "Make Love, Not Warcraft" southpark episode. If you haven't, you should watch it.
