Recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time playing a variety of MMORPGs (massively multiplayer organized role-playing games), for me, they are a good go-to when you are looking for games with a little more depth and wonder. However, I do not own a PC, I mainly use my iPad or iPhone, and a lot of the major MMORPGs are made for the PC platform. Fortunately, there are tons of great games for iPhone, iPad, and the iOS platform.
What Sets Them Apart?
Have you ever been curious about MMORPGs? Before I started playing them I had no idea about the size or scope of these games. We’ve had RPGs in one form or another, but it wasn’t until the late 90s that we got the first true MMORPG. Now there are hundreds of different games, some with millions of players.
What sets MMORPGs apart is the style of game play. From the epic battles and grand adventures to the customization, these games have a gameplay experience that is unlike any other. The world of MMORPG is ever-changing and evolving even when you are not playing. Most of these games involve fantasy and sci-fi elements, which allows you to take on the challenges of new worlds. And the storylines often involve grand quests or mystical missions.
The large user platform allows for a unique social experience. You can join forces with someone across the globe or play with a large group of friends in order to take on the challenges and quests of the game. The more you play MMORPGs the more experience you get. Experience is how you grow character and become more powerful. The more experience you have, the more you can customize and evolve your character to make them as powerful as possible.
Here are some great MMORPGs that are compatible with iOS you could be playing right now.
