This paper is a research of functions of multimedia impacts of MMO games stemming from the analytical framework of J. A. DeVito’s functions of Mass Communication. In this paper the analytical concepts of DeVito’s theory are applied to a qualitative analysis of the most popular, most played and most represented MMO games, taking into account a so called pattern of intensity, to point out new functions and impacts of MMO games. Our qualitative research showed that the functions of MMOs although comparable to the theoretical framework we started from, create a new theoretical model that discovers specific functions with specific impacts exclusive to MMO games which in the end only share their name and heritage with the theoretical frame we started from.
