The psychology of mmorpgs

I don't know how I missed this site for so long - The Daedalus Project examines the psychology of MMORPGs. Now, from what I've seen some of the results as are dippy as you might expect, but some of the stuff is more interesting. You can also participate in the surveys if you like.

I'm personally more interested in the economics of MMOs than the psychology, and have followed the progress of Edward Castronova as he became the poster boy of this research (in looking up his papers, I see he is ranked 15th at SSRN. I do not even get a rank, perhaps to protect my pride). Most recently I see he has a paper titled Dragon Kill Points: A Summary Whitepaper.
