What is so hot about online games?

Over the past years, online games have become so popular. It started with Ragnarok and Warcraft and then suddenly, every game has an online version, even sports games. My nephews and nieces are always frequenting my brother's internet shop to play online games.

Honestly, I haven't even tried any of the online games. I was under the impression that you have to buy prepaid cards to play these games but after looking over the bunch of online games available on my brother's PCs, there are also free online games available. I tried one RPG online game though I forgot the title. You were limited to one world and quests are also limited. I didn't get into it because there seems to be a lot of rude people even online. I was just minding my own business, trying to finish a quest when someone approached me, lead me to a wrong direction and killed my character online.

After that, I limited myself with just playing PC games. I guess there are a lot of cool new games online but aside from my experience, I'm sure a lot of people have found friends while playing games online. I guess it's like a big playground and you meet people with similar interests but still---I don't get it.
