I'd suggest that instead of merging them to this article, we reclaim Online game and merge them over on that topic. I dislike the term "Internet game" and "Multiplayer online game" seems to be sort of redundant. (Single player online games may as well be downloaded and played offline. :) ) -- Xenoveritas 04:34, 2 February 2006 (UTC)

I agree with reclaiming Online game. For what its worth, I did a quick google search on the two words:

  • "Interent game" - 161,000,000 results
  • "Online game" - 583,000,000 results

As "Online game" has way more than three times the page results Id back that position. --Evolve2k 13:56, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

I've merged the contents of this article over with Online game for the reasons listed above - "multiplayer online game" feels redundant, "online game" seems to make more sense and seems like it should be the basic topic covering online games. —Xenoveritas 21:48, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Online game refers to anything on the web, including all browser-based games. this article should refer to multiplayer games. so multiplayer seems like a much better choice to be used in the article title. --Steve, Sm8900 (talk) 19:06, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Browser-based MOGs[edit]

Are browser-based MOGs a distinct class? They obviously can be distinguished by their implementation but it seems like any class of MOG could be implemented via a web browser client. Is BMOG the definitive acronym? I am asking because it seems that Browser-based multiplayer online game might be deleted.-- (talk) 11:34, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I say there's no need to differentiate. If we go down that road, we'll end up with horrible stub articles like Xbox multiplayer online game which will have 99% of the text of this article plus a tiny mention that it applies only to games playable on the Xbox.
