Every once in a while it's good to update our top lists to make sure we are getting the latest games and rankings in for our audience. Today we will be looking at free Mac MMORPGs. Mac users sometimes get the shaft when it comes to games, whether they are just not supported or they get very little attention from developers, it can be tough to be a mac gamer and find great games to play.
Now i'm assuming you are not bootcamping, otherwise you can play any PC games, so this list is strictly for games that are playable on your Mac. The games on this list are mostly browser based games, so they can work on both Mac and PC, and some may have special Mac clients. This list is the top 5 free Mac MMORPG games to play, updated for 2013. Enjoy.
Marvel: Avengers Alliance
Marvel: Avengers Alliance is a turn based social network game that was developed by Playdom in 2012. The game is based on the characters and storylines that you have seen in your favorite Marvel Comics. The reason you can play it on your Mac is because it is Adobe Flash based and played via Facebook right in your favorite browser. Marvel: Avengers Alliance was voted the best social game at the VGA's in 2012 and still holds it's value during 2013.
Battlestar Galactica Online
Battlestar Galactica Online was released in 2011 but because the developer, Bigpoint, constantly up dates their popular browser game, it still has enough juice to make any top list concerning games playable on your Mac computer. You don't have to be a fan of the television series to understand why players want to play this agme. Epic space battles in a great sci-fi setting make this a game to behold.
The Settlers Online
The Settlers Online is another browser based strategy game that is developed by the popular Ubisoft team. Ubisoft is known for building great games and The Settlers Online is no exception. They did not just make this game to capture some market share but created a truly unique product that they are proud to put their name on. Again this browser based MMO can be played on your Mac computer via your favorite browser, whether that be Chrome, Firefox or your loveable Safari.
Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances
Tiberium Alliances is a military science fiction MMO with a heavy dose of RTS elements. The game was developed by Electronic Arts Phenomic and published by Electronic Arts as the only free to play browser game in the Command & Conquer series. The game came out in 2012 but like Marvel: Avengers Alliance the game brings so much to the table that there is still plenty for gamers to enjoy about this game only a year after its release. We will be playing this game well into this new year.
Drakensang Online has been out for a few years now, but it is one of the best browser based games on the market that it continues to dominate to this day. Drakensang does things that fans of the popular Diablo franchise could only hope and that's bring together an awesome community around an insanely fun game. Fans of Diablo will tell you that Drakensang does not seem like a free browser game and rivals their own brand without the huge price tag. Give Drakensang Online a try because you won't be sorry Mac fans!
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
For those of you who've been living under a rock, Facebook recently purchased Oculus VR to the tune of $2 billion. Understandably, backers and developers alike were rather unimpressed, calling it a betrayal. As for me? I've never been more excited.

Six Reasons You Should Be Playing Dark Souls II

Eight Reasons The Elder Scrolls Online Will Be Awesome
As you're all no doubt aware, The Elder Scrolls Online - currently in open beta - will be launching in a few months or so.

MMO Year In Review: 5 of 2013's Biggest Dick Moves
People are dicks - particularly on the Internet. While that shouldn't come as any great surprise, occasionally we come across someone whose level of sheer dickery reaches legendary proportions. As we move into 2014, let's take a look at a few such individuals from the previous year.
Censorship Spells Trouble for League of Legends Patcher
Internet filtering has been a hot button issue for the past several years. With the slow gutting of protective measures like Net Neutrality, and with governmental powers seeking an end to online anonymity, it's rather harrowing to see the slow progression of political and social policing of the internet. Recently, after about a year of lobbying, the United Kingdom enacted a piece of legislation that many have come to call the "UK Porn Filter." What the filter requires is for British ISP's to implement filters and controls, which are on by default, that will block access to "violent material," not imited to "extremist and terrorist related content," "anorexia and eating disorder websites," and "suicide related websites."
