From time to time I'll enjoy a small session or mission (or two, even) of Guild Wars with not only my younger brother, but also my father and his wife (my step-mother) and while usually it'd be my brother and me in one room in Virginia and my pops and his wife in another in Maryland, we're visiting visiting so now it's a living room and a half of family yelling at each other when the monk doesn't cast Seed of Life! Fantastic times...

Our efforts to get our kids to play MMO's with us kinda fails. Our oldest is far more interested in role-playing and running up alts than sticking with one character working towards game mechanic goals. Our youngest? He just doesn't like them. He's also probably the only kid who has actually gotten grief for NOT playing a video game ("Son! Your Warlock is only level 20! What are you doing? I'm paying good money for you to use that account and it's just sitting idle! Get back inside and go level NOW!")

...ok...that last sentence was the only made up part.

*lets out a soft yelp*

I...I'm sorry I thought you were my dad for a second yelling at me to get my ladder druid pass 80.

I do sometimes play with my younger brother, but that is a rare occurence - his PC is unable to handle the games I prefer, and even when we do play together, we rarely meet ingame and never quest. He just plays a lot less and I can't see my level 62 toon do a quest with his level ~30 one..
I wish my parents would be interested in games, but sadly, they aren't.

Never. Though I wish I did. It'd be cute if I could find a girl who liked to MMO. But given I MMO once a month, if that, these days, I'd much rather her be cool with gaming in general.

I played LOTRO with my fiancee, but the rest of my family thinks MMOs are stupid.

I play runes of magic, and just started yesterday Aion with family. My brother, father, nephew and I always play together and join the same guild. Works out quite good to. My brother loves tanking with a warrior, my father aoe damage on a mage, nephew is a fan of the scout, and I love being the monk. We grouped for 8 hours yesterday and got to lvl 12 on our Aion characters.

I've played (/still play) Guild Wars extensively with my younger brother - both from adjacent rooms to opposite ends of the world - and it is great to have a shared interest.

My boyfriend and I both play - lately in two different games simultaniously. My brother, Sister, and a rather large group of close-friends all play too. At times they descend on my house like vultures "oh, your internet is still up?" and we find ourselves trying to figure out who's not pulling their weight so we can get a pot of coffee made.

Is Mafia Wars a MMO?

It's actually a really good way to keep up with my little sister now that we live in separate states. Using our guild's ventrilo client ends up being much cheaper than long phone calls, and we have a lot of fun leveling together.

Yes, I play with my son and daughter, and my wife will, on rare occasion, check on the character we create for her. My buddy and his three sons and been in numerous guilds/factions with us.

The kids also play with cousins in different parts of the country. Its the next best thing to being there.

Not in MMOs but have FPS'd with my brother many times. Nothing better than shooting your big brother!

My brother played WoW with me for a short time. Unfortunately he doesn't have much time for games with his current job. I was disappointed because it was a nice way for us to keep in touch. We live about a thousand miles apart. :(

I get to play with my son and nephews. I'm glad something is out again that we all want to play. After we all slowly abandoned WOW, we didn't find anything else that struck a chord with all of us. A bit of AOC, a bit of ROM, tiny time they were in W101. It's not so much the playing together, always at the same time but sharing a common gaming experience is just as much fun.
