    The word 'Game' implies that there is an end. I haven't ever heard of a never ending game.

    After a while, even if it started out as a game, will eventually lose it's meaning and become something else.
    There are a lot of neverending games on the market, especially in the RPG genre. It startet with P&P RPG like D&D, Midgard, AD&D aso.
    There has never been an end, but all can be considered beeing a game.

    Take a look at other MMORPGs, is there an end???
    Mostly yes, as soon as you reached maxed level and got all this UBER gear, what will take a few weeks in some of the boring ones.
    But there are others! One provioded by CCP with a huge PvP aspect. In that gema you will never reach max level on all skills, as your live is simply to short to get them all to max (yeah sonunds a little like beeing in EU). So you will have to be a specialist, but you allways have the option to improve in some other fields of activity. Due to the huge PvP impact, it gets never boring, and regularly new content implemented makes this as endless as EU.
    Modern online games, need to be endless and constantly improved, as this makes this games very interesting.

    EU provides this neverending skilling, that doesn´t disqualify for beeing a game.
    But there are a lot of options in EU that are not a game, and that may turn your game (EU) into a business (EU).

    I could call this:


    a "Small wood for sitting on", a "4 legged buttock support device" or even "John" but it's still a stool.

    Same applies to EU. Whatever you call it does not effect what it is. The hard part is deciding what it is.

    2. Description
    MindArk provides the Entropia Universe as a service, described as a virtual universe. The Entropia Universe is not a "game".
    I am not a caucasian male.

    How did me saying that change anything to my physical state of being?

    ahem, it's a game. an mmo. it's just more honest about the pay to win factor. and I love it.

    but... now sb said that a game is supposed to be over at some point, with a winner decided. that is very true. ---> maybe the question whether it's a game or not is invalid in the first place
    you don't have to walk their way
    you don't have to watch the show
    you don't have to play their game
    and you don't have to die to leave entropia

    The game is still a "Project" to me.

    But there are many games within the game

    Incase anyone misses it now that we're necroing

    Entropia is a platform on which games are run but not itself a game.

    The poster didn't belong to Mindark back then, so it was just his personal opinion.
