The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

by ebreilly

This is an Example of an MMORPG: "Everywhere we go—whether hanging out at the park, being a lab partner in a science class, or meeting new friends through playing the latest MMORPG (Massively Multi-Player Online Role-Playing Game) —we negotiate the implicit and sometimes explicit norms of social communities. These spaces typically don’t have signposts or labels that state every guideline that we must abide in order to be part of the group—but somehow most people learn what’s inappropriate to do and what to do to fit in. Through observation, talking to others in the group, and actively engaging in the group discussion or activity presented, you can learn about the expectations for appropriate conduct, and what it means to be a responsible player or citizen of the community.
