When it comes to MMOGs I'm a complete n00b, so I got some questions needing answering.
Are there any MMOGs out there that have in-game email (SWG does) that can cc or fwd to your real life email (SWG doesn't)?
What about IM, any MMOGs compatible with Messenger, iChat/AIM or ICQ?
Because I'm thinking that as soon as these worlds begin to connect out with the more open internet protocols and standards, that's when these worlds will properly be 'metaverse'. Also we need some MMOGs that aren't fantasy based, but that's a whole other story.
