I would love to reply to this, Ron, but I really am not following
what you mean by MMOGs being "6 inches deep."  Of all the gaming
genres in existence, I think MMOGs have the deepest influence of
all.  They allow social interactions, communities, individualized
representations of one's self...  basically the ability live and
breath in a new world!  In effect, I believe that MMOGs are actually
the deepest gaming experience that has yet been created.

Perhaps I am misunderstanding what you mean?  Could you elucidate on
your thoughts, please?
