Internet as role playing game

This conceptual metaphor describes the 'Internet' as a role-playing game, full of trolls, orcs,
player character?s, non-player character?s.

It is extremely well developed among those who assert that Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia. One of the alternative views is that Wikipedia is a(external link) MMORPG? instead, as it has many game-like characteristics. See Play Ethic.
