Rubi Bayer, @@rubi_

Large-scale player interaction is one of the first things most people think of when they think of an MMO, and guilds are a natural part of that interaction.

Last week's Flameseeker Chronicles column about Guild Wars 2 guild mechanics was followed by some heavy discussion on how it might work, what the pros and cons might be, and overall importance of guilds to various individuals. Thoughts on guilds in MMOs go way beyond Guild Wars 2, though -- they might be called guilds, clans, or kins, but they all serve the same general purpose and are in nearly every MMO.

Is an active guild something you look for in a game? Are you a social player who enjoys that structure and activity level, or are you content to go your own way?
