MapleStory has been going on for quite some time and remains one of the most popular games online. With its massive amount of players (over 70 million) you are sure never to be alone as you quest. It has a huge amount of activities for you to enjoy so you will never be bored or standing around with nothing to do. This game has undergone many updates and has a great support staff.

Pros: Good class/job system, Platform based, Good tutorial, Big world to explore.

Cons: Repetitive gameplay.

Storyline: There was this guy called the Black Mage who terrorized the world. He was a sort of evil figure if you will, taking what he wanted and ruling with an iron fist and whatnot. Not great to talk to at parties either. Eventually, five heroes got fed up with his antics and decided to annihilate him. They sealed him away, but in the process, they were encased in magical ice. These days, the heroes are thawing and so is the Black Mage. We can only hope that the heroes all break free before the Black Mage comes back, but in case they don?t, we have to be ready. That?s where you come in! Maple World needs fighters, rangers, assassins, pirates, heroes, demon slayers, battle mages, and much more if we have any hope of holding off the Black Mage when he returns.

Features: When creating a new character, there are four branches of classes currently available: Explorers, Cygnus Knights, Heroes and Resistance. The Beginner is an Explorer-in-training who's learning about the Maple World and preparing for the grand adventures ahead. Beginners start on Maple Island, but head to Victoria Island for Job Advancement to officially begin their adventure. Beginners are great for training and learning the ins and outs of Maple World, but Job Advancement is absolutely necessary to get to the more entertaining adventures. Use the Beginner's basic skills to level up until you're ready for Job Advancement. Job advancement means you can specialize your character into focused classes.

MapleStory is a 2D scrolling platform game. The controls for the game are executed using the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard is used for many game functions, and much of it can be rearranged to suit users' needs. The mouse is mainly used to trigger NPCs and manipulate items. Like most MMOs, gameplay centers on venturing into dungeons and combating monsters in real-time. The players combat monsters and complete quests, in the process acquiring in-game currency called "Mesos", experience points and various items.

There are three main continents common to all versions in the MapleStory world: Maple Island, Victoria Island and Ossyria. Maple Island is where adventurers start off their characters. Victoria Island contains eight cities, and is where most classes begin. Ossyria features seven distinct regions with varying environments: El Nath Mountains, Ludus Lake, Aqua Road, Minar Forest, Mu Lung Garden, Nihal Desert and Temple of Time. Ereb and Rien are separated from another land which is the beginning of another job of the game. The World Tour regions contain in-game versions of real life locations, such as Zipangu, Singapore and Malaysia.

There are so many activities to do in MapleStory throughout it's vast lands it would take a very long time to write them all down. Rest assured they are all fun and will keep you hooked. 70 million players cannot be wrong!

    Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed

Today, I'd like to pay homage to some of those songs - and some of those moments. Here, for your listening pleasure (and in no particular order, I assure you) is a list of some of the best songs ever heard in an MMO.
