Last weekend, MMO Attack visited WonderCon Anaheim 2013. We had lots of fun and saw some amazing costumes. A majority of the costumes were obviously superheroes from DC and Marvel comics. There was so much comic book madness going around that we even snagged a shot of the creator of most of those superheroes, Stan Lee. With Ironman 3 being released in under a month a Injustice: Gods Among Us hitting stores in just a week; what could be more fitting then ranking 10 amazing superhero games in the MMO genre?
10. Marvel Avengers Alliance
9. Super Hero Squad Online
7 Hero Smash
6. Gotham City Impostors
5. Champions Online
Players will see more skills available than in other MMOs. Another twist on classic MMORPGs is that Champions Online doesn?t provide an armor system by making all gear more of a cosmetic choice, which at the very least puts an end to everyone wearing the same things. Most people already consider this game one of the best MMO choices for superhero fans. One thing?s for sure though; if there was no City of Heroes to set such a high standard in the first place, there would be no arguing the success of Champions Online.
4. Infinite Crisis
You also gain gold based on the amount of hits your character lands in battle, rather than just defeating an enemy. Obviously some characters will be more Bruce Wayne then they are Batman in the end, but it?s nice to see reciprocity for contribution. The most rewarding quality of Infinite Crisis is building up your character to achieve unique powers. The more dedicated you are to one champion, the faster you will achieve an advanced super power. Players can start signing up for the beta immediately as the game is expected to launch in 2013. With an increased MOBA popularity, a huge superhero fan base stuck on DC Universe Online, and developers that brought you MMO greats like Lord of the Rings; Infinite Crisis is surely destined for something great.
3. Marvel Heroes
People have already latched onto the project by partaking in the Marvel Heroes Founders Program. The program gives unlimited access to character packs that in the future will only be purchasable or worse, never available again. IGN is hosting an open beta run this weekend for people to join, but everyone will have access to the game on June 4th, when it?s released. Whether you plan to enjoy a traditional Spider-man verse Venom showdown, or undertake lesser known characters like Rocket Racoon and Living Laser, this is the game every Marvel fan?s been waiting for.
2. DC Universe Online
1. City of Heroes
City of Heroes spanned over 8 years, bringing insane amounts of end game content. This MMO gave people something to look forward to right from the get go, and that never ended. The combat system could be broken, but that just made it more fun for some people. Character customization in City of Heroes was extremely in depth, even more than the innovative MMORPGs being released years after it. If you wanted a place to make a unique superhero and not just a reused Marvel and DC character, this was the place to do it. With the MMO world exploding since the game?s launch, it managed to improve and keep up with all of its competition. With a free to play model eventually making its way into the amazing MMO, it makes perfect sense why superhero fans are outraged at its disappearance. When the only thing stopping a game from existing is the company that made it, what better justifies it to be at the top of any superhero game list.
