Wow.. you have a pretty generic impression of mmorpg. They are about immersion, Storyline, And teamwork among players, Going around and slashing swords and summoning monsters is about as generic as me saying.
"FPS are just about running through hallways and killing creatures/people online or in single player"
Just because something has a basic design doesnt mean a game cant innovate or be fun. WoW and EQ 2 offer quite a bit more than that.
