There's nothing greater than being able to get away from everything else while paying video games. Some games actually let you become someone completely different. You can be an alien, some crazy magical spell caster, or maybe even a light saber wielding jedi, or possible a captain on some giant space ship in the outer reaches of space. Even cooler is that you can meet tons of other people while playing these games. We're talking about MMORPG's (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games). Our 'Retro Roundtable' this week we look back at some of the greatest games in this genre that we have played or are possibly still playing. We even find out a little bit about how some players can really build something out of one of these games.

"Dean, a hypochondriac, who is convinced he's infected with a myriad of ailments at the slightest sign of a symptom, is working the late shift delivering pizzas all over his hometown of Rockaway crossing paths with old friends and enemies. When a military convoy of trucks passes through the town carrying a mysterious cargo, people start to get sick with a mysterious illness, and start turning into disgusting undead cannibals. Now Dean is confronted with the personification of his greatest fear, and left with a choice: Does he desert the only home he's ever known? Or does he face his fears and help save the rest of his town?"
