This is probably one of the most difficult top 10 we could assemble. How can you list the best free to play top 10 anime-inspired MMORPG games without leaving quite a few behind? We did our best at reuniting a few classics of the genre and some more recent games in our Top 10 Anime MMORPG, but we’re sure we left some great games out. Without further delay, here are 10 free to play Anime MMORPGs that everyone must play.

10 – Iris Online

Iris Online is a case of an MMO that looks good and plays great. There’s a great twist to the game, with the inclusion of Tarot cards that can be used both for customization or monster summoning. Turning into a monster during combat is good fun, but it’s even better when there’s a fully-fledged MMORPG behind it. Such is the case with Iris Online.

9 – Dragon Saga

Dragon Saga (Dragonica) is one impressive Anime game that breaks from the usual perspective in MMOs. Designed as a side-scroller and blending elements from the MMORPG and fighting genres, the game also scores high on the visual department. The comic touches added to a satisfyingly deep experience turn it into a quality MMO.

8 – Grand Fantasia

Grand Fantasia may seem like a generic fantasy MMORPG with the usual anime graphics, but it is quite a few years old, when the theme still wasn’t over-explored. That also means that Grand Fantasia has a lot of content on offer, the sprite system is an interesting feature and the large world is filled with a lot of fun quests.

7 – Rusty Hearts

Rusty Hearts is a high quality anime-style brawler, featuring some impressive character art and smooth animation. It’s a great fighting game that is only made better by the polished visuals, appealing both to fans of the genre and those attracted by the graphic design. The best of both worlds, we could say.
Play Now: Rusty Hearts

6 – Mabinogi

Mabinogi is a classic free-to-play 3D MMORPG with cheerful anime style visuals and a focus on the community aspect of things. It’s a relaxed game with a lot of peaceful activities to do, but combat and dungeon exploring are also part of the game. This is a game for every kind of player to enjoy and leave any competitive desires aside. The prequel, Vindictus, however, is a more mature action-MMORPG.
Play Now: Mabinogi

5 – Ragnarok Online

Ragnarok Online sure is one old MMORPG! However, there aren’t many games that can claim to have an original art style such as the one in display here, and those that tried to do it (Solstice: Reborn, for example) are far from receiving the same acclaim. But there’s more to Ragnarok Online than its beautiful and large game world, with regular content updates bringing something new to the table. Ragnarok Online is considered by many the best anime mmorpg anime of all time. A sequel is in development.
Play Now: Ragnarok Online

4 – Fly for Fun

Fly for Fun (FlyFF) is another long-running popular MMORPG with lots of updates, a level cap that keeps on climbing and, of course, anime graphics that may show their age but have the merit of supporting a game with all the popular features. As the name says, when players reach a certain level they will be able to fly, opening new opportunities such as air combat and races.
Play Now: Fly for Fun

3 – Eden Eternal

Besides offering some of the best anime graphics in a free-to-play MMORPG, Eden Eternal has a couple of features to make it stand out from the competition. The most important is the class system, where a player is free to switch between classes, as long as some conditions are met. The clean interface and frantic combat also deserve a mention, but beware of the grind.
Play Now: Eden Eternal

2 – Dragon Nest

Nexon is the publisher behind Dragon Nest, an MMORPG with extremely detailed anime-style characters and a world that fits perfectly with the theme. An experienced team comprised of elements who worked on Kingdom Under Fire and Ninety Nine Nights is responsible for the development of this game, a charming blend of RPG and dynamic combats.
Play Now: Dragon Nest

1 – Maplestory

Maplestory is a timeless classic and a legend, a free to play 2D Anime MMORPG that is one of the most popular ever. Released in 2005, it still manages to hold an impressive playerbase, boasting figures of over 100 million subscribers worldwide and over 8 million registered users in Maplestory Global alone, as of 2011.

It’s easy to understand why the game is still so relevant nowadays, but it’s almost impossible to replicate that success. First, the regular updates keep the game fresh and interesting – a recent update added PvP; secondly, the cute anime style looked so captivating that players spread the characters all over the web, acting as the best marketing tool that exists. Finally, Maplestory looks like an easy game to play and consequently draws many new players, although it has a lot of features on offer.

Other games tried to imitate the visual style of Maplestory, but there’s nothing quite like the original.

    keep in mind ALL of this is opinion. Unless you were to present a ‘top 10 anime mmorpg’s REPRESENTED BY PLAYERBASE’ or any other factual argument, this is all opinion. So anyone reading, don’t get angry because your favorite isn’t number one, or the outdated maple story is #1, just remember that you are entitled to your opinions, just as the idiots over at metacritic and the idiots who public articles like these are entitled to theirs.

    We all have our opinions.

      alright, everyone is saying maplestory is shit and yes its gameplay style is boring, but the reason it was put in 1st is cause its updated like every single day and cause of the number of people that play it. i played all of those games and my opinion would be dragon nest should be number 1 especially in 2014 with the assassin character out for north america

    Okay, to shine some light on WHY crappy MapleStory has such a huge player base, it’s such a low requirement game ANYONE can play it on almost ANY PC. That DOES NOT make it a good game, it’s simple, addicting, and never empty, hence the craze. I hate maple story, but am very glad to see Dragon Nest as #2, since maplestory doesn’t exsist to my MMOer mind, that means Dragon Nest is #1.

    Very good list, though if you took out MS, moved everything up, and added another as #10, it’d be perfect.

      addicting yet crappy? well they did a good job..because you just called them addicting =)

      • StevenCrux on September 2, 2011

        Well yes “addicting” as in it’s a crap game using simple mechanics to grasp mass player base. Like almost all Facebook Apps. It isn’t GOOD in the least. The reason MS clones have failed is lack of player base. MS grasped a few ppl, they told friends, etc etc. enough to get MS net-fame, this brought more numbers, to fall into it’s brain-numbing simplicity. And now we have this CRAP game always making top MMO and top Anime-MMO lists.

        I like runescape getting #1 for browser, it makes sense. Its a complex game, available to most. But if RS got #1 fantasy MMO i’d be pissed.

        MapleStory may be the #1 2D MMO, but it is far from the #1 Anime MMO

            I’ll just ignore your simply bluffed percentage regarding the MMO-gaming population.

            About the “don’t know each other in rl..” statement, that is not entirely true. There is a type of friendship called “online pals”, if you’ve never heard of it. Quite interesting, really; MSN, Skype, Facebook, etcetera. So, did I reply your comment politely enough?

          +1 There are 2D sidescrollers out there that are technically/graphically superior to MS in almost every way (LaTale is a very good example), but MS has arguably the most game content of any mmo out there. Plus it’s sheer playerbase, people will play a sub-par game if their friends are playing with them. LaTale are one of the few 2D mmos that I consider better than maple story, with much better animations, gameplay, and platforming that involves more than simply jumping over gaps and climbing ladders, plus it also has a large population.

            Call Of Duty is a great example of this… Terrible game, but people buy it because their friends play it.

            the weird thing is, no matter what I will not be one of those people, I’ll use my experience with maple story, so far, I’ve played as Shade and Xenon, the game play is extremely frustrating to get the hang of because I can’t move the movement keys, and the fighting feels really clunky, the design feels a bit lazy(but maybe because I’ve been seeing alot of pixel art games nowadays) and also, the characters in Shade’s story makes me wish I could kill villagers, and all the quests in BOTH characters are really tedious feeling

            I’m saying the same and I have played for several years. Its utter garbage. Just easy and lower requirements which make it a game for kids. Its got far too many hackers and bugs that don’t get fixed and they push updates that many disapprove of and new classes that are just reskins of old ones. Hell it sucks to the point that I have quit, and couldn’t even find someone to give my millions of mesos too. There are almost too many worlds for the number of players so a lot of them have few players other than on the channel 1 which is where bots go to trade.

      MS is one of the best games that i have ever played. Not because i can, but because i like it. So if you guys think that MS is just a crappy game of low requirements go play WoW locked on your room with the TV on and some corn-chips by your side!!!
      Next time, before you guys even speak about MS go try it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!´

        Anyone who says Maplestory or WoW is the best game out there is so close minded and deluded. Those are the type of people who never played another mmo and or lack of a library of games played, yet automatically assume the one they play is the best.

        (0)
        • Kuairi on December 28, 2011

          I am not close-minded nor deluded. Maplestory to my own opinion is a good game. WoW however sucks. And i have played other MMOs besides Maplestory like Mabinogi and Vindictus they too are good games. SO please don’t call people close-minded or deluded. They like whatever suits them best.

      Steven,about the low requirement game,that is what all games should focus on.Not that bad graphics.You know the iphone?IT IS SO SIMPLE TO OPERATE THAT A 5YEAR OLD COULD DO IT!!!That is the charm.Complex things suck cause many people cant understand them.SIMPLE things onthe other hand,which is maple(kill,sell,lv up.do quests,etc),is the charm!
      If anyone can play it,of course the player base is huge!
      On the other hand,i wouldnt mind in CODMw3 had graphics of the mw2,that would be good enough to run on my com.(which doesnt even have a intel prosescor..well not that i know of)
      Basically,Maple is good cause its simple.Games like rage may hav complex things,but those things are fun things,so i wouldnt mind.

    • Captain Obvious on October 30, 2012

      Too bad this is all opinion and you have no right to forcefully alter said opinion. And an MMO having a low system req, being never ending and addictive is what makes it a good game. Nobody likes a high end, 4 hour story MMO that you have to force yourself through like Phantasy Star Universe.

      what do u people see in a side ways playing chibi game with ppl with heads bigger than their bodys running around with 2mm long weapons hitting animals and other stuff for days and days that go to weeks and months and years The reason u ppl like Maplestory is because ur game liking standard is low MS i played for 46 minutes and regreted the time i spent downloading it idk exactly MMO and Rpg And mmorpg games difference so i wont name any that idk but GC was a good game but it is repitive meaning u ahve to do certain things hundreds of times to get a new class Eden Eternal was a good game Dragon saga was a nice game cause u can actually move around and dodge attacks unlike maple story only thing is at lvl 33 -39 its gona take a while to lvl up and quests are a bit difficult

          • well Skylus has the biggest point in the world, without friends ur there staring at ur screen around lvl 80ish(i know because thats what happened to me on most of my chacters) but with friends u watch them party with (u can party with random peeps too, but u get my point) then after 110 where leveling gets tougher they help,,, remember what F.U.N stands for? (F=friends who do stuff togethor…U= U and me…N= n-ywhere at all across the big blue sea…..i also met me new GF who i love to death <3, meeting people online doesnt make u weak(socially) i have tons of friends but then online it just happened…. like i understand ur opinions tho , but i guess it all depends how hardcore u are into gaming, i mean the new classes maybe copying old ones and then the new ones copy the newish ones copying old ones but i mean there is only so much of a class that can be brought up…. so yeah it a great game, u guys get bored because u hit the wall to much take frequent breaks, anyways i doubt some one will be reading this so yeah all u guys ,, me being from the future…2012 doesnt exist just saying (;

        Megaten is a anime game, it is based of a crappy anime and so they made a crappy game to match that almost everyone in my city place cause everyone here is a stupid mexican( im not talking about you smart mexicans so dont even reply ) so to make it short, MegaTen sucks and dragon nest should be first.

          Crappy anime? WTF are you talking about? Megaten isn’t really that bad (liked it for the gameplay that required logic and analytic abilities). Besides, the Shin Megami Tensei series is insanely popular and known for always having epic stories and good strategic gameplay. It really feels like your opinion is filled with prejudice.
          I’m not being fanatic or conceited, I was a fan of DN before I discovered the Shin Megami Tensei universe.
          From my perspective, Dragon nest may seem like an awesome game, but if you look into it, it’s just an dungeon-based action button-masher with chibi anime graphics and with a stereotypical storyline.
          Now don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed dragon nest and really liked the flashy action-styled gameplay, but by the end of the day I realized that the game was becoming increasingly repetitive and simply zombifying.
          Never had that feeling with IMAGINE though…

      What… I think I liked MapleStory better with its cool hangout and party quests, Dragon Saga was just mainly repeat of dungeons where you just grind and cool. In the party quests of MapleStory it’s not always grinding and killing, but games too, like matching the right numbers, searching for items with people and friends :D

I played maplestory global closen beta, i quited alot of times but i keep coming back because of the fun memory’s i had.

      Lol. Why don’t you actually play the game first and go learn some english before you post narrow minded comments like this. Just because the graphics sucks doesnt mean everything else does which, the graphics dont suck and someone mentioned latale having better animations than maplestory. I’ve played both and ms has better animations, definately

    Maple story? Eww, just cause some people who find real life far more difficult then a fake 2D fantasy life, it doesnt make it a good game.

    Rusty hearts is okay, but it is just hack and slash really. You enter a small box, mobs spawn you bash your keys like crazy in the most uncomfortable way possible and just continue the routine.

    Though it does add excitement when you are suddenly owning the mobs with ease.

    Everything else on the list is utter crap meant for girls, girly men or little children.

    Does anyone else notice that the only people saying MapleStory is any good at all are the 6-to-16-year-olds that can’t talk worth the space in which they reply? Not only that, but they think some 2D, (supposed) “anime” style, generic game literally made to entertain children new to MMORPGs is better than something else–and I mean ANYTHING else. Hell, -Rappelz- is better than MapleStory! Sh|t, some of the BYOND.com games are better than MapleStory, and they’re all amateur-made games made and (sometimes) maintained by about 1-4 people per game! MapleStory may have a lot of players, but that’s ONLY because 10-/11-year-olds went around on social networking sites and spammed “U G0TTA TRI MAPELST0RIE! ITZ S0 K00L!” (Children’s internet lingo ftw.) The only reason people got tricked into continuing to play MapleStory is because it’s so damn simple, a baby could friggen play. So, with that level of (un-)intelligence required to play, a bunch of children started playing it and even some adults. The adults got tired of being inferior to the children, so they created a bunch of hacks for MapleStory, which then spread to all the children, and that completely ruined an already-sh|tty game even further. The people using hacks for MapleStory aren’t even punished properly, so the millions of players keep using them, which forces newbies to get them and get in trouble for telling others that they’re using them thinking it was completely fine to talk about. So they all make new accounts, maybe change their IP Addresses, and play with more hacks than before. So, really, the player base isn’t incredibly large, it’s just a bunch of banned newbies and their alternative accounts . . . and other children . . . and about six adults that suck at life. Hell, the Moderators are even children! I had the misfortune of TRYING to argue with one my second month playing and got permanently muted for calling him a child several times. So, that ruins the game further: Baby Mods. Lol. I hope you realize now that if you play MapleStory, chances are you’re either a Child, an Adolescent that acts completely childish, or are one of the six Adults that suck at life. That, and, like the other person stated, you’re completely close-minded . . . but I don’t blame you, since you’re a child or childish adolescent. The probability that you have actually played any other MMORPG and stayed past the first trial of any real importance is likely to be around -1 to -3 percent. (Yes, children, that means it’s impossible; as in, you never have and probably never will.)

    Once again, a large playerbase does NOT make a game any good, and if you actually think MapleStory is any good at all, you’re either a child, a childish adolescent, or a complete loser–most likely a child/childish adolescent, though.

    Wall of text anyone? Hope you read it, all you MapleStory-loving fools out there, and, just so we’re clear, MapleStory is awesome. Everyone should go play it. “Be All You Can Be–A Six-year-old Dumbass Playing MapleStory”.

    • Malon on November 15, 2011

      I am 18, and I think Maplestory is an ‘OK’ game… but this kind of bullshit about how much it sucks and how it’s made only for little children has to stop.

      1. You compared BYOND to Maplestory… I think Maplestory is better than the BYOND games NOT in population but for content and gameplay which BYOND games lack.

      2. Maplestory was there when Myspace was popular and Facebook never existed…

      3. Yes, the game is simple but sometimes very complicated (Where do I train? What quests should I do? Should I get some more money to get better gear? etc.)

      4. Hacks, yes I think they are the most retarded things out there but the population of accounts don’t account for “banned newbies” they only count the actual people who play (using the same IP address of course)

      5. I don’t think the mods are ‘children’ if they are they should not even be working there because mods, in most mmos, do it as a job, you know with an actual paycheck… And also you getting perma-muted for insulting a GM of a game is not really a ‘smart’ move for you… I mean come on, who calls a GM a child and continues arguing that, and NOT expect to be punished?

      6. I bet most of the kids here have played other MMO’s other than Maplestory. Heck, it wasn’t even my first, it was Runescape. And there is a lot more MMO’s out there as well so you do not know if the “little kids” are even playing them or not…

      7. Your 2nd paragraph, you say a large playerbase dosn’t make a good game, that is true, BUT it does not JUST have a large playerbase, it also has a lot of content and gameplay to be had. That sounds a lot more close-minded than anything you said…

      I hope you read this and re-think about what you have wrote.

      Also, I have been to Cartoon Network (although, not much anymore) And I have only seen the advertisement once or twice through my life time.

      So stop trolling, and get out, and you better read THIS wall of text.

      oh good for you. bravo bravo. you managed to give us a wall of text that has absolutely no information given at all. youve shown us that your imagination is quite limited and your ability to think outside the box is very subpar. why you have’nt even told us, in your opinion, which game you think is better than maplestory. And have you realized, dear sir, that everyone who is bitching about maplestory is just another fatass, whose sitting in his little computer chair staring at screens for 9+ hours a day, who just got so full of himself that he had the gall to go and insult something that someone else, or many someone elses, have put a lot of work into. Yes maplestory has a large playerbase, yes maplestory is EXTREMELY easy to play. but that in itself is the very reason why so many people play it. its simple, its easy, there isnt a million confusing things thrown at you the second you start the game. Its kind of like appale products right when you buy them. they come in a box and on this box is a picture and a single word. while every other product or tablet or whatever has a milllion things and pictures written all over it. Maplestory is simple , easy to play and IS NOT for little kids.I’m 15 and 90% of the people I’ve met in maplestory are over 20 and quite intelligent, and do not “suck at life” as you put it. oh and speaking of adults who suck at life since you believe that the moderators are childeren how old must you be, 45? maybe even 55? b/c i dont believe ny self respecting senior citizen would even be on one of these sites. OH and “close-minded” you probably dont even know the meaning of the phrase. when you are openly insulting a game you have obviousy not even taken the time to try. I particularly like MAplestory , the graphics are good for a 2D sidescroller, and there is a multitude of classes that make the gameever more interesting. and yes all of the classes are based off the 5 main ones( mage, warrior, thief, pirate, and archer,) but this is what makes the game more interesting, as finding someone who is exactly like you is virtually impossible. I have tried Dragon nest and yes at first it is very fun but s soonas you get to max level, which doesn’t take very long at all, your done and you have to make a new char to keep playing. I believe that maplestory has earned its place as the # 1 anime mmorpg as it is a GAME and games are only arounfd to kill time, and this maplestory does VERY well.

      Honestly, the choice to like a game is an opinion. I could say that Maplestory is great, or that it is utter crap. I honestly could talk trash about any of the games on the list if my opinion was I don’t like them. You just typed over a paragraph of information that could easily be constrained to,” In my opinion, Maplestory is for children.” Not,” Did you notice how blah Maplestory blah blah blah blah and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.” You have absolutely no evidence to prove ANY of your claims. Why? They are all opinions. how can you prove everybody who plays a game is a child? how can you prove ANY of the statistics you listed? In the end you’ll just get many people who look at your comment and think TL;DR. For the record, before you rant about video games, do research and make sure that your claims are opinionated. K? Bye.

Maple Story was my 3rd mmo, it was really funny in these times but now after SIX years of playing mmorpgs I have to I MUST admit that your beloved Maple Story is piece of shit , 95% mmos which I was playing was BETTER than Maple Story.
      So my conclusion is Maple Story is for players new to MMORPG games.

    All I’m trying to say is that all these arguements are pointless and a waste of time. Also, no, I’m not a hypocrite for argueing as well because I’m just telling you to shut-up and play… or learn something useful.

    Playing once in a while is fine (like what I was planning to do) but this? What a waste… pathetic really :(

    Really most of you complain about MS being number 1?
    I never played it but I heard a lot about it. Most ppl who told me about it said that it’s a good game. And if you look at playerbase… Well… There must be something good about it since ppl play it?

    Only thing I’m asking myself is “How the hell did FlyFF get into the top 10?!?”
    Sure if this list came like a year or 2 ago I’d agree but now? Gala-Net screws up the game and makes the end game cash shop dependant. So if you want to reach the lvl cap you either have to be awesome in economics (which is hard since prices are high and ppl keep rising them to sell their goods and ask low prices if they want to buy) or just pay real money to actually get there with exp scrolls (amps). Looking at Flyff’s player base there’s still no reason that this game should make the top 10. A bunch of people quit because of the sucky updates that disappointed everyone. The ones who now play are either the ones who want to be with the game till the end or newcomers who haven’t seen FlyFF on it’s best.

    (0)
    • Malon on November 15, 2011

      I would agree on that statement of why FlyFF is on the top 3… It’s ok on the list but not on the top 3. They screw up the gameplay on that game badly and I know, I’ve played it when it was just starting…

    Dragon Ball Online isn’t up… because it isn’t in US yet… tho it does have “English Patch” so you can play the original language ver….

    Also… as said, Maple Story doesn’t really deserve to be the “First”, because just because there’s a lot of players, doesn’t make it the best game.

    In fact… you could have said WoW is the Number One Game if we go by the number of players…
    But as we all know… WoW isn’t the best… (but this is a “F2P” discussion, just making an example)
    Just because there’s a lot of players, doesn’t make a game good.
    Also, there are a lot of other games out there that’s really great, but really low number of players (due to sukky company that doesn’t update – such as Camon Hero)
    And Rusty Heart is awesome, but not a lot of players play it… so it have low number of players.

      I’m not a WoW fanboy or anything but i did play WoW for 3-4 months and i’ll have to say that WoW has more polish than any mmo in the f2p market and that’s exactly why it was unbeatable for the last few years sure mmos such as aion and warhammer tried to compete but they lacked the polish that WoW contained even now lots of the mmos in p2p and f2p market can’t compete with WoW except Rift and swtor and later on GW2 with more to come

      so even though playerbase doesn’t determine whether the game is good or not it’s the content and the overall package which drives all these players from playing it

    I appreciate MapleStory since it’s usually a “beginner MMO” that people play before they get into something differrent. I don’t think it deserves a #1, maybe a #4. I really thought Ragnarok Online deserves a higher rating. It’s like the original anime MMORPG and is still popular today, though mostly in Japan. On a related note, don’t bash on WoW just yet. The game is hugely based on communication and has always been very intuitive and difficult to play. It demands comradeship between players to achieve a common goal, called a guild, and other competent players outaide the guild that may generate fame or notority within the server through word of mouth. All in all, I’m not saying WoW is the best, but is viable for its originality and gameplay at least. Unrelated to this list, since it ian’t an anime game. Also, I’m disappointed that Ether Saga is not in this list and Dragon Nest is somewhat overrated, not a #2, but maybe one number down.

  36. Hiraishin on November 13, 2011

    They did not put MapleStory as #1 because of it’s player base. They are just saying that MapleStory is a popular game telling from it’s number of players(different accounts not chatacters). Nexon(partner of Wizet and publisher of MapleStory) has made over $540,000,000(USD 540 Million) dollars while Wizet(developer of MapleStory) is making $350,000,000 (USD 350 Million) dollars per year! MapleStory offers a wide range (really really really wide) of items, characters, classes and gives you hours of fun. As well as fresh updates and patches. If you are experiencing bugs or lags the adminstrative team fixes ALL OF IT by the next server maintanence. People don’t just “play” MapleStory, some of the older players aged from 12 to their 20s are using MapleStory as a social network where they can actually sit and chat (well its virtual) with the relaxing music or just have great fun challenging each other in the new Battle Mode where players can compete against others in all good fun. So if you have any more crap that you don’t like about MapleStory the administrative team is right on it :D oh and the hackers are reducing greatly thanks to the new and more active GameMasters! And all of you haters who say that MapleStory is sooo easy and then start complaining of getting scammed. I mean what kind of dog(noob haters) falls for the “clone your items” scam?

    Maple story doesn’t even have place on this list. Where’s Lunia? Grand Fantasia? LaTale?

    How could you even put Maple Story before all those other games on the list? They’re all better than Maple Story, every single one of them. I tried them all, along with Maple Story.

    How are “Eden Eternal”, “Rusty Hearts”, “Dragon Nest” and “Dragon Saga” worse games than Maple Story is beyond me. On this list, 4 games that I’ve listed above are in a completely different league, when it comes to quality.

    I’m guessing it’s something like “World Of Warcraft”. took the market early, because it was very unique when it first came out, there was nothing even similar, it had years to promote itself without any competition, and so it gained popularity, and it’s hard to break it now with anything. In that genre of 2D Side-scrolling mmorpgs, LaTale takes the 1st place. Just get a player that never tried MS or LT, let him play both games for 10 levels, and see which one will he choose to play.

    • zerodyl on December 22, 2011

      i have played Maplestory AND LaTale and i can honestly say i prefer AND dislike them just the same.

      MAPLESTORY:
      im level 153 ice and lightning arch mage on maple( char names: Melaniann, im a guy just dont ask lol) and i really liked the game because unlike LaTale maple has events that dont involve spending real cash (majority of the time) while all LaTale’s event involve you buying a “special” cash item. BUT ever since the whole potential cubes came into maple that has changed and in order to be anyway strong you need to spend hundreds of dollar,

      LaTale:
      i am a lvl 170 Maestro (level 143/144 Minstrel cant remember) IGN: zerodyl
      like I previously stated LaTale is fun but lacks in updates so its the near same old content continuously

      LATALE Vs MAPLESTORY:
      while in LaTale you can buy super puzzles but unlike maples potential cubes theres a limit of how much they increase ,
      for example in maple you can get a wide variety of stats e.g 18-27% any stat on an item to LaTales balanced super cubes where normal cubes get you +30-40% min/max damage increase,super cubes can get you 50-100%min/max damage increase.
      this being said before people compare my above said stats i have +0% INT and my chain lightning does 20-40k x 5 = 100-200k dmg, my friend has 200% INT( about 1k dollars worth in value) 200-300k x 5 = 999,999 – 999,999 (damage cap) since he was practically level 120

      In Short: Latale lacks updates,non cash item related events, balanced power(generally)
      Maple lots of updates not many cash related events, VERY unbalanced power

    about the rusty hearts video you should probably remake that now since there’s a lot more choice going from a focus at level 20 where you master sword or scythe(scythe is the level 10 weapon you can pick from) and show how Just Guarding works

    and a little tip with sword magic missile is a homing skill so you don’t have to melee so much and depending on the class and weapon there is a charge bar which gives different melee chains, for example,
    Angela scythe:
    chain 1 :she spins around killing anything close,
    chain 2 :she twirls the scythe launching her for into the air and then uses that laser skill,
    and
    chain 3 :she throws her scythe air juggling her foe leaving them wide open for a team mate to kill them or for you to follow up with some magic

There is also a huge variety of races like human, mouse, frog, bear, and halfkin (cant really remember their specific names) also updates are every week so theres always new content.

      This is only my opinion its not like im saying dragon nest is bad. but it just seems like i cant quit eden eternal and i highly recommend this game.

    LOL. I haven’t played Maplestory for like 5 years. It’s looking MUCH better. I’m very glad that they have more customization features now. They use to give you a 3 choices for each (hair, face, top, bottom, shoes), and it sucked. I might just play again now.

    most of u little children out there think maple story sucks. just because u dont think hard enough to follow the story line and have fun with it doesnt mean its a bad game. it just means your mad your favorite game (which didnt make it cause it fails) didnt get up in top 10.

    OKAY HERE IS THE SHT!!!!!!!!!…maplestory is a great game untill u run into that part where ur wanting more combos or spells or armor..well guess what…ther is none unless u buy it or lvl the sht outa urself…(buy as in real money) and the fact that they advertised thru cartoon network gets u those little inmature kids playing and bugging girls *coughcough* me (email is fake =3) and bugging others thinking they can do whatever and be urber annoying..the number one mmorpg i would actually say lostsaga or rumble fighter…both have difficulties but they arnt boring or shty like alot others *cough cough* (looking at u maplestory and cartoon networks exuses for mmos) but there is one thing good about maplestory….dawn warriors and pirates ^_^

    never played maplestory. Just couldn’t get into the look and felt it wasn’t my cup of tea. All that aside, it’s obviously still a great game for many many people out there. Kids, adults, people with low spec or older hardware, whoever makes little difference because a bad game will NOT get played no matter how much marketing and tricks they pull or whom they market it too. If it were a bad game people just wouldn’t play it after the “newness” wore off and that’s a proven fact about any game out there. They certainly wouldn’t be playing it for years after.

    So for whatever reason, people play it and still play it. Lots of people using lots of different hardware play it now and played it then. There has to be a reason for that and marketing t kids or anybody won’t mean squat if its not a good enough game to keep them playing much less spending real money on (which people do). Bottom line its a great game, may not be for everyone (like me) but its still a great game.

    And they don’t advertise on cartoon network at least here in the US they don’t. All their marketing comes from the internet and social media (facebook, et;al). Now if they do advertise and market on TV in other countries I cannot say, but I haven’t seen a single TV ad for it yet and I love cartoon network. If you meant the Cartoon network website, I didn’t see anything for maplestory or any nexon game there. They have their own games they market and push there.

    I’M TIRED OF PEOPLE SAYING MAPLE STORY IS AN AMAZING “ANIME” GAME.

    1: Maple Story shouldn’t even be compared to a real “Anime” Game, their graphics aren’t worthy of “Anime” Status.

    2: No one is saying that maple story should just die, all we’re saying is that it’s not good enough to be considered the best MMORPG out there. The game is only fun for people who like to do nothing else but kill monsters and lvl their character (and both my brother and I have played the game), there are a lot of mmos out there that offer a lot more then just becoming stronger.

    3: How many people play the game is meaningless…all that shows is how good their advertisements are, this has nothing to do with how good the game actually is.

    Personally i don’t care who likes or hates the damn game its not that bad but it deffinitely ain’t the best and doesn’t deserve the #01 spot.

    • Derp on March 18, 2012

      Wow i didnt know people played games because of how the ads look. Cause you know people play WoW cause of advertisements. Doesnt have to do anything with gameplay or that, No of course not. :P

      • Holyone on March 25, 2012

        WoW has great advertisements but unfortunately the gameplay of WoW is terrible now, even one of it’s renown players ranted about it(Athene). and I just want to point out to all the people above if they ever come back and read this XD. That Maplestory has had some of the best advertisements as soon as release. I played Maplestory on and off since CB and I have seen some awesome advertisements over the years, and the playerbase has changed a lot over the years aswell, the game use to be all hackers(like 90% hackers) then they patched a lot of hacks, hackers left, then they started making a bunch of shitty updates. Then the made some more. and eventually like all other games do, they do to many updates and lose what the players liked in the first place, so all the oldies leave and newbies flock to game. same thing happened to runescape(the wildy update ruined game) and if u were old to either of the games i just mentioned think about the leaderboards and who was always on top Tiger, and for runescape Zezima. and everybody use to know the names of those two players. Now if you go on those games only a few people would know who u were talking about. Well all of that talk about the past and stuff had a underlying reason, the point i wanted to put out is, that for new players to an old game(in most cases) will see the game as sucking, while the new players will see the game as awesome, so argueing about if it is awesome or not is pointless since the two will never come to terms.

  65. OnAllEnds on March 9, 2012

    Guys, earlier on (somewhere in the first half of this page?) someone said that this is all about OPINION. Many of you are saying that the people that play this game sit on their butts all day, but do you realise that you’re doing that now? Arguing non-stop, saying “HEY! THAT GAME SUCKS!” or “THIS GAME ROCKS AND YOU ARE CRAP”. I have played Maplestory for awhile some time back, but I had quit because it wasn’t my type of game. HOWEVER, it does NOT suck. I agree, there are a bunch of hackers here and there, but you only come across about 2 or 3 in a day? If you’re talking about bots, then multiple games, preferably 2D (because it’s easier) have bots. I’ve recently uninstalled the game, but I might be going back in 2013 to check it out again. Again, all OPINIONS. I personally think it shouldn’t be #1, but still in the list (#4 or something). I haven’t played too many games, and my taste in these MMOs are way different than most, considering many people say that the games I play sucks. Another point (following the above post) is that it IS an anime game, even if its graphics are somewhat unappealing to some, like me. I also want to add that the number of people actually ACTIVE is much more important than the number of people who signed up, although it may not be possible to calculate such numbers. Comparing that to the number of people who signed up, you can guess what first impression it makes and whether it’s actually good or the trailers, gameplay videos, advertisement, etc. that gives their playerbase. Now, for the most opinionated part. You haters say that “Oh, these games are for kids” and other kind of crap. Please, be honest with yourself and don’t give such shit when you know adults (WITH A GREAT LIFE) play it too. Sure, perhaps some are close-minded and such, but most of them may be the kids. Teenagers and adults alike should have played at least 2 other MMOs, unless they’re just starting out, then they have no rights to comment on whether a game is good or not.

    A re-cap on my opinion on Maplestory: It has a few problems that I really hate but it can be very enjoyable to those who like these kind of games. All in all, it’s pretty good, just not good enough to be #1 in my opinion.

I play alot of MMOs and all of them are fun, Ghost recon online, Mabinogi, MS, AvA, Global agenda, But anyways i think all of the above are great games and they are all really fun. So all you haters can just go eat yourself. :D

    I really dont understand why the hell ROSE online isnt more popular. Its one of the best Free MMO’s Ive played. I dl’d most of these and since its 2012 they all seem abit outdated and repetative. I dunno why but in pay to play games I LOVE quest related gameplay. But in Free MMO’s Questing sucks, obviously because its free. You can’t deny that. But ROSE is pure grinding and has a unique feel to it. And most free MMO’s try to go for Quests and fail. I played rose with a party, that I know in real life and the whole feel of trying to get those rare drops to kick off your money gain. And having competitions on who in the end has the best equipped char, and the richest char. Aswell as working as a team With MULTIPLE class types what are actually Noticably different. Is amazing. I mean we have finished with rose, But we keep eventually coming back to it because we search for new MMORPG’s And all have nothing on it. And for some reason ROSE is empty now. When there is SIMPLY nothing wrong with it. TBH I find it hard to see why People play guild wars. But Alot of MMORPG’s now are just clones or copy everything to other popular ones. None of them have decided to make original type games, which is a shame. Thanks for reading, just my rant for today :D

  77. Veteran on April 22, 2012

    After being a part of Maple Story when it first came out and I played the betas and got my characters wiped… I would say there really isn’t much to it. Maple Story consumes way too much time for the people who have a life. The only way they keep pulling back the veteran players is because of their so called new classes, and people’s curiosity wins them over. I know every MMORPG has grinding, but taking hours upon hours of grinding just to gain one level when you’re up on the high levels… The only reason I played for those few years on and off was because of friends who went up to the 150+ levels… which is ridiculous.

    That’s my 2 cents. PEACE

    Alright, everyone has their own opinions about Maplestory. Why can’t everyone accept that? I love Maplestory, although I loved it way more before Nexon f*cked it up with all the classes. Although the classes are pretty much just stupid remakes of the original explorers, they can be pretty fun. Maplestory is unique in many ways and it has its major flaws, just accept it as for what it is, if you don’t like, whoopdy f*cking doo, just quit the game and play others. Theres thousands of games out there to try and probably enjoy. And Nexon is greedy, and everyone knows that, just get on with it, they want to make money.

    I’ve played Maplestory and thought it was a good, not great, game. I liked the casual nature and the social aspects of the game (marriage system, party quests…). However the releases of so many jobs that were so similar to the originals and potential gear and Miracle Cubes killed it for me. :/

    In my personal opinion, Eden Eternal doesn’t deserve to be on this list. Sure it’s popular, you’re not limited to any class, and the graphics are fancy, but people need to open their eyes and see how repetitive this game is. I never made it past the closed beta testing phase, this game was a huge disappointment.

  100. Jellopy on June 10, 2012

    Of these games I of course think ragnarok should rank 1st but i am partial,it was the first mmorpg i invested a lot of time in and i have a fondness of it though i think the guild they added is kind of lame(quests are nice but i wish vending had been disabled in it,it’s way over crowded with merchants.) and it’s not as compelling to me after i’ve played several newer mmos. And I am kind of sad to see wakfu didn’t make the cut-it’s not hugely populated but by far the best strategy mmorpg and it is anime based.

    Here’s what I think. The reason MapleStory got first on this list is because of the person that wrote it. That’s all. Whether it was because it’s his favorite game or based on the player base of it. Who knows. MapleStory started off as a game of it’s own kind, hence why it had so many players on it. Their player base dropped a LOT at one point I remember. They basically did a complete revamp, added new characters,maps and amped up the experience you get from quests and such, bringing back old players (which a lot probably made new accounts forgetting their old ones contributing to a + in player base) and brought in new players. I wouldn’t say it deserves #1 but it deserves to be on the list. Rusty Hearts is a great game in my opinion. I mean, how many games can you name where you can use a bad ass scythe as a weapon. I played it for a while but quit because of the lack of people that play it. Dragons nest is a great game also. If any game on this list deserves to replace MS I think it should be that. I have tried every game on this list at one point or another because I love trying out games I haven’t played before. Iris online is good but I didn’t like it THAT much. Dragon Saga was just plain boring to me. Grand Fantasia was also another boring game IMO. Didn’t like Mabinogi or Ragnarok. Flyff is just plain dull and boring. It’s like every other MMO out there with nothing original except being able to fly which isn’t that great of a aspect. Eden Eternal is blah. Only 3 of the games on this list is worthy of even being on a list at all. I wish people would stop adding in Runescape to the conversation of opinions on this list. Runescape is awful. Even if it was fully F2P. Just awful. Anyone who thinks it’s great is just pathetic and need to get off of their old windows 98 computers and experience a thing called life.

    90% of you people who keep arguing about MS being “gay” or “sucky” or “great” or even the “best” just seriously need to leave. You can’t spell for crap. Your grammar is horrible and you just plain sound retarded. Why don’t you focus on getting an education first. Most of you dumb ass people probably have characters that are higher level that your IQ. You’re pathetic.

    So before I go just a few more words of advice. Please, for Gods sake, grow some damn hair on your body before you try to act like you know anything about criticizing something you know absolutely nothing about. “It fun i can lvl up fast and be a loner while mom changes my diaper”

    Get..a..life

    Elsword, no. NO game that has a stamina bar should be allowed to even be called an mmo.

      Obviously you have never played mabinogi. Or you just ignorant. Everything about it is special. No other mmo has what mabinogi has. Its exactly what it says its a “fantasy life”. Mabinogi is the best game on that list but im not saying its the most popular.

    from what I found about maplestory to be good in the game or to even get someone to talk to you, you got to be high level and have bought items from the item mall. I find people rather childish on maplestory and never saw myself liking it. I have played alot of anime like mmorpgs, but never found myself really sticking with one only because how much the item mall goes around the game.

  135. Kalamity on August 15, 2012

    If you have a problem with Maplestory take it up with the Korean version. There is also a meaning behind the classes that are released. Take the heroes class as an example. The hero classes are comprised of the Aran, Evan, Mercedes, Phantom, and, in December-ish, Luminous. If you take the first letters of each of the hero class you spell MAPLE, rearranged of course. Another prime example is the Demon Slayer class. The Demon Slayer class is directly connected to Maplestory’s plot via the Demon Slayer being the Dark Mage’s subordinate. The Resistance class were created to combat the organization that works under the Black Mage AND to serve for future use so the Demon Slayer can be incorporated into the Resistance organization. The Cygnus Knights are directly related to Maplestory’s plot; in that they are the lead organization whose purpose is to combat the Black Mage. The Cygnus Knights also maintain ties to Phantom, from the original Cygnus that Phantom loved, which gives a reason to involve the hero Phantom. The Pirate class as an adventure class does not come to a surprise in that each adventure class, archer/warrior/thief/pirate/mage, has a hero, Mercedes/Aran/Phantom/Luminous/Evan. To be honest I do not know where the Canonneer, Dual Blade, or Jett comes in. They may just be side clases to allow side stories to occur in game; which in turn allows a further in-depth story line.

    I`m not sure why you people are even having this conversation maplestory was my first mmorpg and the reason was it was easy to level and then got bored played others and every once and a while I would come back to it to see what they have done with the game obviously they are trying to keep their playerbase and there is nothing wrong with that you people are annoying as hell and are just a bunch of losers with no friends or lives I am writing this because I feel that everyone should be able to have a chance at good lives and i`m sure not all of you are losers and just play mmos as hobbies and that is okay because I do too everyone has opinions and just go back to playing mmos/living their lives this is all just a pointless conversation

    I’ve played 3 of the 10 (mabi, rusty hearts, and dragons nest) and 2 others (eden eternal and maple).
    Played mabi the longest which was for like.. 2 or 3 years i think, was good but then it got boring so i up and quit. Rusty hearts is good, i played it in CB and like it but once it came into OB i just didnt feel like playing it anymore, probably cuz i was playing DFO (dungeon fighter online) and i preferred it over RH. Dragon’s Nest is ok but idk i just didnt keep on playing it like i did with mabi. Eden was just… bleh and maple… well i just didnt plain like maple.

    Out of those ten, i played 5 (Iris, Rusty Hearts, Mabi, FlyFF, and Maplestory). Honestly, my favorite has to be Rusty Hearts and least favorite is Iris (which shutdown). Mabi was alright, but not my type of game. I used to love to fly around in FlyFF, but it got boring. And Maplestory, I played it for two years, but then it just got plain easy and boring. Old Maplestory<333

You act like you have the power to change it. You can’t. :) Either shut up about it (which you won’t.. Clearly) or talk to private groups. I’m one of the few population who doesn’t care about the game in general. We play, and chill. Anyways, what’s with you constantly comparing Maplestory to some off-set game? I’m defending it a little. Cause it is holding that #1 title. I got props. ATTENTION. Yeah, people have really short attention spans. Oh, random question.. Why the hell is PlanetSide 2 so similar to Tribes Ascend?

    My current top 5

    1.Lucent Heart
    2.Asda 2
    3.Florensia
    4.Luna Online
    5.Maplestory

    Maplestory is a great game because it keeps you going. The arguments that it ”sucks” are meaningless. It’s you against the millions of people who enjoy playing it. If the game sucked nobody would play it and it’d shut down. Also, i’m pretty sure the writer took in account all the Maple PRIVATE servers that are also widely popular.

    (0)
    • ShihJe on January 18, 2013

      I agree to you.. Lucent Heart is the best.
      It has good graphics, gameplay, definitely 3d , awesome matchmaking, dance &race competion, Pvp, astrolable which is really unique and fashion, great map, cute and ferrocious monsters(and the hidden monsters), Instances, funny actions and awesome pets and items there are also unique skills apart from your chosen class. The quest are also awesome and the map..too bad I haven’t tried other transportaion aside from the cable ride before it went down :( I really miss my game.

  154. Captain Obvious on October 30, 2012

    Also, a honorary mention to Mabinogi. That’s as close as F2P gaming has gotten to actual Roleplaying at the moment. The playerbase is poor and the entire map-system could be redone to be more player-supportive. Traveling is a drag and a /community/ is slightly lacking. Having said that, all the systems revolving around the player themself are SUPERB. A skill system that doesn’t require those stupid skill points, you train a skill and if you’ve mastered it to a certain degree you can move on to the next skill, it’s innovative and you see it in anime’s like Sword Art Online.

Dragon Nest is a game that I’ve been thinking about for some time because It kinda bothers me that the classes are gender- locked and I like more to customize my character and that game doesn’t really have that, but the way this game is ( aside the character customization ) It just makes me want to play it so I’m going to download to see if I like it.

    I think it’s still up in other countries, but for players in NA, it’s gone.

    I guess the developers decided to keep only Legend of Edda alive in NA since the sequel is now in CBT — while Luna Plus and Iris got the boot.

    Right now, the only option to play Iris is on a private server.

  168. Dawn on December 14, 2012

    Wow, just the complete idiots that are posting on this. People are ignorant.

    Maplestory is the #1 game because of the features it presents. Reviewers have a list of points that they compare the ideal ones based off of various surveys and research, to the game itself. Maplestory happens to meet those ideals quite well.

    It has frequent updates, a large playerbase, unique gameplay and story, plus it has a simple learning curve.

    Putting aside Maplestory, a game that had those features would be incredibly appealing to you. Maplestory HAS all of those features, regardless of what you think of it. Hence why Maplestory is #1 on the list.

    If you feel that it’s so wrong, put together a full fledged, PROPER review of YOUR 10 best anime games. And ensure that it is written in as objective a manner as possible, providing as much information on the game that is important. And then come back and complain that this one’s wrong.

On that note, I’d like to point out that the sequel to Ragnarok Online is almost done; and we here in America get to play the OBT starting December 27th. And personally, since there are so many anime MMOs out there, it may be more appropriate to do a Top 20.

  173. Seralynette on December 27, 2012

    I’d like to do Maple Story some justice. It was the first MMORPG I’ve played, and I find myself jumping back into it from time to time, but it was never enough to keep me around for more than a few weeks. And then my characters will go on hiatus for over a year before I decide to scratch the itch again. During the course of years that I went on-and-off with Maple Story, I’ve also tried out other games such as NosTale, Ragnarok Online, Destiny Online, Crystal Saga, LUNA Online, Trickster Online, and LaTale.

    First off, Maple Story achieved one of the most important requirements of an MMORPG — quick-to-learn controls. I hate having to figure out the controls and find it cumbersome if I have to read through some in-game item manual. I’d prefer if they have the controls explain simply and quickly within the first 5 minutes itself.

    Secondly, the graphics are a little old compared to the other MMOs, but they do have flashy skills that are attractive to an extent (which will become better when you level up and get better skills). I’m quite upset though when I heard that you have to pay real money to get the Nexon Cash currency in order to master Evan skills. It just seemed like, “I’m never going the bring out the full potential of my character no matter how hard I train, because I can’t master his skills without paying with my lunch money.”

    Thirdly, and one of the most popularly criticized aspect is its population base. The demographic of Maple Story, when I first started playing, seemed to be young teenagers ranging from ages 12 to 16, with the occasional odds of younger children (my friend was mortified to find out that his Maple girlfriend was really just an 8-year-old), or adults around the age of 30 (there was also a nice senior player who confessed that he is a 65-year-old professor in person, hence the reason why he never wanted to marry anyone in-game). Recently I gave Maple Story another one of my itchin’, and I met gamers who ranged from ages 13 to 19. While there are annoying brats who just scream n00b with the way they talk and harass others, you may also come across players who are more mature and helpful. It’s all about luck. In every community – there’s bound to be a ratio between fun people and stupid people. Sadly in my opinion I find Maple Story leans more towards the bratty and obnoxious children (because Mommy and Daddy can afford the NX they want to win in the game), though lucky players may find real fun people to casually hang out with in the game.

    Maple Story is considered a classic because of how long it stood while many other MMORPGs have shut down or have been announced to have their plugs off by 2013 (after many months of Ghost Town Syndrome). It managed to survive by keeping its contents fresh, but I must admit that it puts me off with its new and overpowering jobs (compare the typical Explorer Assassin with Hero Phantom both thief class, or Cygnus Dawn Warrior with Resistance Demon Slayer both warrior class).

    It’s comparatively easy now so it maddens the senior players who have spent plenty of time and effort into levelling their characters up back then, including myself. So really, Maple Story to me is almost like a first ex that you always have a sense of nostalgia towards, but find yourself hating because they are money faces that keep you around without you realizing that they’re sucking off your money and energy as long as you’re lax with time management. The moment you left him/her, they can still stand on their own feet by attracting other people with new tricks and whatnot. It’s really a love/hate thing for me. xD

    I’m so sorry for such a long post. If you’ve finished reading this entire post, thank you so much for your patience!

    • LuciLoo on January 23, 2013

      Errrrr yes….. Perfect World international if you play a certain class you can get wings at level one. You really need to play all the games in the world before you can come up to that conclusion. Most likely the most games a person would have played is about 50, and even that isn’t enough to come up with a conclusing like ‘only THIS game has THIS’ Like for instance me saying, ‘Only Dragon Saga is a side scroller mmo’ when Maple story is a side scroller aswell.
      So please dont come up with conclusions till you know the facts.

    I am just going to say this. I am happy that Dragon Saga/Dragonica even made it on the list. Though in my opinion it deserved a better score. Look guys you aren’t doing nothing good, screaming and cussing at each other. I’ve played some of the games on that list and in MY opinion (not YOURS) some of them shouldn’t be on that list. If it were me doing that list… Maple Story would be in 7th. I don’t like the game, but I can’t say I hate it. I guess its okay if you don’t like games that take MONTHS to max level it.
    We all have different views about this. I prefer 3D mmo games with fast combat and good skills. Others don’t mind that much and are comfortable with a 2D mmo game with ‘normal’ skills and an easy leveling system. So don’t get all het up when someone doesn’t agree with you.
    My personal review on MS would be that the graphics aren’t good and to me that makes a hell of a lot of a difference. To others that wouldn’t matter to them so much. Guys we’re human beings, we all get slightly annoyed when someone doesn’t agree with you or something that you love doesn’t get to be in errr.. 1st place? ._.
    Look for you game lovers out there I will give you a tip, if you’re getting so annoyed about your favourite game not being at the top of the list then you better go on holiday and experiance real life. Staring at a screen for hours looking at a bunch of pixels moving around, fighting mobs isn’t going to do you any good.

    So yeah, I don’t want any mean comments because I’m trying very hard not to get anyone angry right now… As you can see (If you even bothered to look at what I put) I was trying to look at both points of view.

    My final thoughts: Dragon Saga ought to be in 1st place. It’s not perfect, button mashing gets annoying and dungeons can get boring but other than that it’s a really good game with a acceptable pet system, item mall prices are average and when you’re new people offer to help you without you even asking.
    So just remember, we all have different opinions….

    P.S-Woah this was longer than I intended it to be!! xD

    maple story sucks now. i have been playing it for around 3 years if u count all the time together. the amount of updates and new things just make it so crap and confusing. i remember when there was just the explorers. now less than 2 years, they already added around 10 new classes and more to come which is just crap. you get all excited then it all dies down immediately at level 50. now it is just too easy to level up. you can now go up to level 70 with the new classes on constant playing in around a week. but the original was around 4 months which gave the game a challenge. They changed a lot of things in the game. for example, they changed all the map layout and new parts. also the mobs level have changed down and new stupid mobs.

    PS i stopped playin around 2 years ago not that u care any way

    I don’t get why Maplestory is #1. That game went downhill since 2009 or 8 (I don’t remember). I used to play it with a bunch of friends and we would just have a lot of fun like 6 years ago. I had a level 52 Assassin (Thief) and it took freaking me like a really long time to get to that high level (max level was 100 then). Then with all the updates and crap, the game went pummelling down. It took days and months to level and get at least 1 mil. Now it’s just 1 mil in an hour and NX for everything. I mean 6-10k damage was a lot of damage, now even level 30s can hit that much. I really don’t hate Nexon that much, but they made Maplestory into a money-eating game. Seriously if you don’t have NX, you can’t do shit, you’ll be people at lower levels would be doing twice or 3 times your damage cuz of NX.

    @Joe… u r wrong… the max lvl was 200 since the beginning O-O I dunno where u got that info from… and NX can’t really get u higher damage, it all depends on luck. An by luck I mean not.., the LUK stat but ur own luck when it comes to Potentials… If you’re lucky enough u might not even have to buy NX because u will get an amazing potential on an item straight away.

    Thats all :P

    • Joe on May 16, 2013

      You know you can buy items(equips, etc), meso bags, gachapon, etc. with NX right? You can get extremely good items with NX, and buy meso bags to get more items from marketplace, and you can get expensive scrolls and such with Gachapon. That’s what I meant to say, not like you get automatic damage boost the second you buy NX. Yeah I can agree with you need luck to get potential scrolls successfully, but still, why buy scrolls when you can just directly buy already scrolled items. It just saves a lot of your time wasted on trying to get something that you need.

  200. random on April 19, 2013

    Maple is a good game. Maple is a bad game. It doesn’t matter whether or not maple is good or bad. In other’s eyes it will always be #1 or #0. Iv got a lv 170 (then hacked) and ill b admit it has gotten easier to lv but nexon plans to change it back to the old days s look forward to that. The new classes are overpowered but have u ever given a thought how much u played compared to those who play 24/7? even if ur funded or think ur pro, unless u know the right areas to train and have the time to do so then u will never be able to surpass 24/7′s. New skills and classes will keep coming out, level cap will soon be raised to 200 and those hyper skills are so op damage cap will be raised as well. The chances of beating them are less than 1/1000000000. Overall maple’s a good game but personally I think there are too many hackers (or no LIVES) out there who prob given up on life, get paid, ruined their life, just have no lives or those dammed “trolls” who hack people probably for their enjoyment of thinking of others expressions of once they get hacked. Many people hate maple because of that and other just have their own opinions. Ps: Maple is made originally an anime but cut short and ended with a shitty ending because the game was way more popular. Almost every player on maple doesn’t even know the anime ever existed because nexon has given up on it.

    But it’s not.
    But I agree with those who said Dragon Nest is better,
    ’cause I also think that.

    Mabinogi is currently my #1 game in this list. My only problem with that game is that you need a party to do some missions. Its pretty tough to solo the mainstream quests, so you need a friend to join you in the game. If you are new to the game, your chances of quitting is pretty high.

I’ve never gotten bored of it, but sometimes it lags… I remember one time I lagged soooo much because a ton of these hi-lvl maplers were using pointless attacks for no reason and plus they were typing random crap which made me have to log out and log back in because I froze…

    but other than that I LOVE the game! :)

    Maplestory? More like HACKERstory

    Every few years, there is some major crisis in the coding & hackers have been able to gain access to the account database. Long time players have found themselves stripped of everything they spent countless hours obtaining. Nexon has the worst customer service on record & have allowed their game to go from epic to shit. Proof is around of mods allowing hackers to get away with their activities. Conventional LEGIT players get banned for little to no reason at all due to the failed autoban feature implemented meant to stop hackers but causes headache for everyone BUT the intended target.

    Wizet’s sellout to Nexon was the worst possible business deal ever.

      Elsword is like exactly what you want dude, that or dungeon fighter online. Dungeon fighter online is cheesy but appealing at the same time, however in terms of user friendly design Elsword is better. Dungeon fighter online is a more traditional rpg witha 2d beat them up style.

    Absolutely hate Maple Story, beginning is boring, Pay to Completely Win, too much people spending on it, and its not as good as it used to be. But I can see why they chose to make it #1.
    In terms of how fun a game really is though, I’d personally rank Maple story lower then hell :\. No offense to Occults.

    I’ve never played Wonder King before, but I can tell by the trailer that I really wouldn’t rank it any higher then #14 of what games I’ve seen anime based.

    Grand Chase actually doesn’t really belong up in the top 10 anymore. Its lost what it used to have after being transfered to Gamerage.

    Maplestory 2 will release soon in 2014/2015 there will release soul worker and black desert and it will take long time till it will release in EU or NA.. so enjoy those games he posted :)

    I played maplestory for 7 years don’t play it unless you have a shit ton of money for higher level gameplay believe me when i say that you will need a shit ton of money to buy some decent gear and cube them these guys don’t know what there talking about its either there like level 100 or are lying about how long they have played believe me I have gotten 4 level 200s and the rest of my characters are 160+. I stopped playing like 6 months ago because of the shear amount of money and time it takes to fund your characters and level them up. Dont really suggest maplestory or any nexon game really because most of the time there pay to win games.

        Kids or not. Games are games. It’s like saying “Milks are for babies.” You still drink them from time to time. Are you a baby or an adult? Therefore, if you say these games are for kids, then stop playing games because games ARE FOR EVERYBODY.

          Games are indeed for everyone, but I think you misunderstood what Faycal meant. Games are for everybody, but there are certain games targetted to specific audiences (either people in their late teens….kids below 10 and so on and so forth). Dragon Nest is an example of a game that isn’t targetted towards a specific audience…directly. The thing about it is that it is highly skill based. Having played several MMORPGs, I’ve seen many kids playing on them as well, but almost NONE of them are good at MMORPGs that don’t involve pressing a button and having the skill do all the work for you. And Dragon Nest is even harder, you have to move around, dodge attacks in real time and aim and such. Its not geared towards a specific audience, but its difficulty is too high (especially in PVP) for kids, hence, its for older and more experienced players.

            maplestory has changed A LOT since it begins, the game is unbalanced, and over powered characters, i know the old maple was just grind 24/7, but this maple is just too easy, boss are simply too easy now, i remember zakum being killed by 30 ppl now a guy can beat him in 30 second, how we are supposed to make friends in a game is just about having the greatest damage

          • This guy is right. Everything else people say about maplestory is crap. Like Maldito down there, the ones who can kill zakum in 30 seconds are funded. They spend alot of money on maple, alot of people do. Maplestory has real events to work for, its not unbalanced at all, I mean, a Warrior would be way better than a Demon Slayer if funded correctly. A lot of things in maple you have to work for, If you go to the free market, almost everyone there is working hard to make mesos(money in maplestory.) PLUS, Maplestory, unlike any other game, has uniqueness in; Skills, Equipment, Pets, Map, etc. The only problem i have with maplestory is the quests, which really arent worth doing.

          • Rightousgamer on May 4, 2013

            Wonderking is the best mmo i have ever played And the only one i have not got bored of. Its gameplay is funner and smoother than maplestories, and its not pay to play. You pay and get visual aspects and some bonuses regarding exp and money. Im waiting for it to be re-opened. Also Flyff i played off and on for 6 years. Its ques are mostly useless, if you plan on playing look up the good ones. For me the only reason i stopped playing was because i didnt build my class right and failed to make loads of ingame currency. If you mess up your stats and skills early on. You HAVE to buy a little bit to change your stats and skills. Oh and getting 0.15 exp a kill at lvl 90 is a bit hard on my patience.

        Why? Because the number of players make a good game? Or is it because Maplestory advertises to young children through Cartoon Network? Its a cutesy game marketed towards children through children television. That doesn’t make the game good it makes it money grubbing.

        • Tsukuyomi on November 23, 2011

          This is very true. Nexon is a greedy and terrible company. They have destroyed maplestory. The newest classes are rip offs of old ones and it just over all sucks. I have played for years and quit. Wonderking proved much better even though it has a smaller player base. Playerbase just means they have money to advertise. Some of the best games I’ve played have had lower player bases.

            I doubt you have even played maplestory saying it has been destroyed. Wonderking completely copied maplestory cuz maplestory was made before wonderking and everywhere it says wonderking copied i have even played wonderking and it sucks (they failed trying to make a 2d mmorpg)
            and WTF IS IT WITH EVERYONE SAYING MAPLESTORY IS FOR LITTLE KIDS JUST CUZ OF ITS ART-STYLE its just a unique art style that many games dont have its not aimed for little kids so STFU, anyone that says its for little kids is stupid!

            But….the extra classes might be a bit to off….a gun class having the ak-47 or desert eagle takes the cake,nexon shld do that.

            I have to agree with Shunsei although Nexon is greedy and SOME of the classes are rip offs of the old ones Maplestory is still a good game. It has it’s own problems but it is VERY popular and Wonderking is a rip off of Maplestory. And i don’t care much about the classes as long as they are fun i am fine. I’ve played Maplestory for 5 years and not one thing makes me think otherwise of it,

            uhm… no… just no… the newest classes were made to introduce a new story line, and mobilize some of the older classes, demon slayer = warrior but can glide and has rapid mid dmg attacks, all of their classes are op at 1st introduction, but it’s just a test run of sorts, they nerf it appropriately around a month later. nexon isn’t greedy, it’s just a business, if it didn’t advertise to the appropriate and intended audience then it would eventually go out of business.

            Nexon is a money-grabbing company because, while the games are free, they’re all “Pay to win.” The cash shops offer unfair advantages over those who don’t have the money to spend on a game.

            im sorry bro but u are just terribly wrong….
            MapleStory
            deserves to be the most epic game ever made by Korea
            and wonderking fuqin copied them.
            i saw a skill logo of the I/Lmage ThunderBolt skill
            on wonderking Mages
            to be honest i played wonderking before i ever knew maplestory i think i remembered that my lvl was like lvl 30-35..
            but who cares! Wonderking ended! it got shutdown
            a number of players from there came to MS.
            its possible nexon is being crappy but people always change.
            u never know a company janitor is gonna stop this and bust in the conference table and say wise words to the people.

          Okay i have NEVER seen Maplestory advertise on Cartoon Network. So what the f*** are you talking about? (I have been on Cartoon Network alot because of my Baby Neice wanting me to get on there so she can watch her missed shows.)

        Numbers don’t justify anything, and they are usually inaccurate…plus, they don’t account for people who start games, think they suck, then they quit…Maple Story was weaker than a praying mantis with cancer.

          Too bad for you that Maplestory has a massive REGULAR playerbase though, so they’re obviously doing something right.

      Maplestory is more a gateway MMO for the younger gamers to get into other MMO’s.

      • Joe on March 25, 2012

        And I also looked through this list. It’s pretty nice, except, I can’t really find a good browser based MMO. I like the downloadable ones, but my memory is full…

      • TheGamer on December 17, 2011

        lol 3 million registered users, not active you know, really boring game i played for 4 hours and stoped…Ragnarok deservers better place

        • didarinjo on September 13, 2012

          uhm maybe trueou play a game for that 3 milion users doesnt activate, but there arent 3 milion players!
          there are more then 10 milion users. and if you play a game for 4 hours you cant say that a game is boring because you didnt play it long enough

          (0)
          • Imm Beastin on November 21, 2012

            Yea you can. 4 hours is alot of time for a game actually. the old Maplestory was good now it is pure garbage. if Anyone wants to play a good free game then download a private server for World of Warcraft. It is free and legal so yea. Also Maple Story doesnt have 10 million users -_- the only MMORPG that has that many is WoW

        • MEEP on January 5, 2012

          It does not suck and if you have evr actually played it you would know that maplestory DOESNT END which mean that you CANT beat it. I”ve been playing maplstory since the year it came out, and yes it does get boring at times, but the constant updates keep me coming back to play it. Time and time again.

          • Overlooked on January 21, 2012

            point is it gets boring after a while. i used to be addicted till i notcied mapple story is just a bunch of chibi’s showing off their flashy overpowered special attacks. The game barely requires skill to play. trust me after a while of pressing th same few buttons over and over you will get bored

          • delta 2 niner on February 12, 2012

            if you want a good button smasher play spiral knights its newer its a combo of sci fi steam punk and fantasy yes it only has like 5-10 buttons but you can play it as a browser downloaded so you can go off it for a bit and come back but since how its made you can battle social and make items yes it does lag but that just means there are alot of player online it has (what i call) parallel server so there are alot of people to talk to also yes they have very bad timing on scheduled maintenance but that is good because it only takes 5-9 minutes

        Call of Duty and halo have more ACTIVE players than Maple but it doesnt mean that theyre the greatest games ever. Sure theyre good but when a game is released into a genre it causes over saturation, making the game feel “oh god not another one of these”. Updated graphics and a difficulty overhaul could fix it.

          • Ashi on September 12, 2012

            I know I was using it to reference a example. I was trying to say numbers dont mean anything. Companies that boast huge numbers are counting players “signed up”. That doesn’t mean anything if you have to create a account in order to download. But out of genre reference aside, Maple is making money, companies will copy it to make money. Maple is causing over saturation.

            Do you research noobs, (NOT IN A OFFENSIVE WAY) Pokemon came in ’96 while the first thing digimon-related came in ’97 as tamagochis. Anyways, digimon battle never looked cool, and you’ll quit digimon masters fast because it’s pay-to-win. this saids top 10 FREE anime mmorpg.
