OK, so I was looking around Amazon.com and I saw the book Game Programming in PHP. I was very intrigued by the last chapter, which talked about making a MMORPG in PHP. My question is, would it be practical to make an entire MMORPG in PHP? If so, could you point me towards some good PHP game development/graphics tutorials?

The php interpreter lacks raw power as compared to "traditional" languages like c or c++.

That said, it is very possible to create any type of game in php; do take into consideration, however, that it's not designed for real-time games at all.

Yeah, I'd be really interested in knowing what that last chapter was all about. A Mud would be fairly easy to pull off, an MMORPG would not be.
