Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Free MMO Überlist
AldoHippo Hooraythe swamp, always the swampRegistered Userregular
Welcome to the new and improved Free MMO Überlist. For years I have been keeping track of free MMOs and this is the place I have decided to collect them. The goal of this thread is to make other PAers aware of these games and to give them some sort of clue on what games to avoid and what games might actually be fun to them. My descriptions of games are often patently wrong, biased, incomplete and ridiculous, this is mostly for my own amusement. If you feel a description is wrong: please let me know in this thread and I'll edit it.
Now, before one decides to play one of the games on this list one has to realise that these games are not for everyone. It also helps to lower expectations. These games are made as cheaply as possible with one goal in mind: making the game just interesting enough for people to purchase premium services or to attract advertisers. There are exceptions: some games are fan projects or showcases of companies to show what they can do.
Definition (or: what goes on the list) Free: the game must be accessible without payment. A large part of the content of the game needs to be playable free of charge without any time limits. Additional content may be accessible for payment, but the base game must be free. M: Massive. The definition of massive is very loose. As long as there is some element of a persistent world and/or the possibility to interact within the game with people you did not explicitly invite to play with you I'm going to add this to the list. M: Multiplayer. The game must allow you to interact with other players in-game. O: Online. The game requires an internet connection to play.
