There's no doubting the success of Apple. Whether you're a fan or not, the company has certainly changed the way the world looks at technology. One of the biggest innovations made by the company was to finally bring the world of MMO gaming to individuals owning apple products. In a day and age where everyone has a computer, most consumers buy what's most popular; and the Mac is certainly popular. Tons of people own a Mac, enjoying a user friendly operating system, a strong processor, and reliable amount of power. With such capabilities, there would no doubt be MMORPGs on the Mac one day. Many games boast solid 3D graphics but lack a sense true MMO gameplay. There are a whole handful of good games available on the Mac now though. Some have succeeded on the PC for years, while others have taken life on both operating systems concurrently. Best of all, you can try out every single one of these games for free. Let's not tarry on the systems anymore though and get right to what really matters: the top 10 free-to-play MMORPGs made for the Mac.
10. Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures
8. Wurm Online
7. Savage 2
4. Drakensang Online
2. League of Legends
Players are constantly finding new suggestions for developers to improve the game. This community is dedicated to their craft and with such amazing graphics through endless PvP adventures. League of Legends is clearly trying to be the king of all MMORPGs, which is an extremely high bar for any company to set for its game. Regardless, when it comes to a Mac there are very few options left that include beautiful visuals and amazing PvP game play to go with it.
1. Guild Wars 2
Every Top 10 list will have its fair share of people arguing with number one, so people have every right to think it shouldn?t be Guild Wars 2. At the same time, there are too many factors that can?t be argued easily justifying it to be the best MMORPG on the Mac. Like many of the games on this list, Guild Wars 2 offers stunning visuals to carry players through one of the most enthralling stories in MMO gaming. What is unique to this MMORPG is the balance of teamwork. Whereas people usually have class-defined roles in battle situations, players can now mix it up and play an MMO the way they want, regardless of others needs. Sure, some professions support certain battles duties more than others, but there is no longer forcing warrior or knight style characters to be just a mindless, hack and slash, damage dealer if they don?t want to.
Another explosion of innovation comes from a drastically different PvP system, also known as world verse world. Players are almost granted an entirely second game, playing extremely different from the rest of their Guild Wars 2 objectives. The social interaction in this MMORPG is better than most too. Guild Wars 2 finds a way to connect players through an immersive experience unmatched by its competitors. Even if you still doubt such a successful giant, Guild Wars 2 has certainly paved the way for the changing future of MMORPGs.
Eight of The Most Memorable MMO Dungeons Ever Designed
Dungeons are a staple of the MMO genre; large-scale challenges requiring co-operation and co-ordination between anywhere from five to a few hundred players to adequately complete. Of course, not all are created equal, and some stand head and shoulders above their peers. Today, I'd like to tip my hat to those few legends, those instances that'll stick with us for years to come as shining examples of how to do dungeons right.
Ten Of The Best MMORPG Songs Ever Heard
In many ways, an MMO is only as good as its music. Many of the best and most memorable moments in an MMO invariably have a song associated with them; a piece of music which brings the memories flooding back the moment it reaches one's ears. 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.
Facebook's Purchase Of Oculus VR Isn't The End Of The World
