Every week, brings you a sometimes less than serious countdown related to the MMO genre.

5 Singleplayer Games That Could Be MMOs

General -  Column

As has become customary here at MMORPG, this week’s list is the reverse of last week’s! Previously, we covered five MMOs that we think could be turned into great singleplayer games. Now, we want to look at five singleplayer games that could be turned into great MMOs. With the extreme level variety the genre we know and love experiences in today’s industry, there is plenty of room for new concepts.Posted Jul 7, 2014 by David Jagneaux

The Top 5 MMOs That Could Be Singleplayer Games

General -  Column

So many MMOs nowadays have evolved into an amalgamation of game modes and content – some stuff you can play alone, some of it requires strangers, some of it is best with friends, some is friendly, some is just for fun. Even though these experiences seem to be getting farther and farther away from what made the genre so exciting to begin with – adventuring in epic online worlds – it has led to creation of a term with both good and bad connotations: solo friendly.Posted Jun 30, 2014 by David Jagneaux

The Other Top 5 Hardcore MMORPGs

General -  Column

There are lots of awesome MMOs out there. So many in fact, that in my previous list about the best hardcore MMORPGs, I felt like I wasn’t quite able to list them all. Sure, I stand by the 5 that I picked to grace that first list and they are undoubtedly the best, but what about the other games?Posted Jun 23, 2014 by David Jagneaux

5 Reasons MMORPGs Aren't More Enjoyable

General -  Column

In case anyone doesn't know it already, my MMORPG background began back in the days when you could count all of them your hands and still have a few fingers left over. After playing them as well as observing how the genre has evolved for nearly two decades now, it strikes me that I don't find them to be as much fun as they once were – or perhaps more importantly, as I feel they should be.

The Top 5 Hardcore MMORPGs

General -  Column

Last week I covered the best casual MMORPGs, so it was only fitting that we shift our gaze this week towards the most hardcore games the genre has to offer. I define hardcore to mean games that are inherently designed to be difficult, unforgiving, and intense by design. By this definition, they just don’t make MMOs like they used to.Posted Jun 9, 2014 by David Jagneaux

With so many options out there for an MMO to play, there is something for everybody.

5 Reasons You Should Play WildStar

WildStar -  Column

The most anticipated new MMORPG of 2014 is, without a doubt, Carbine Studios’ WildStar. The Elder Scrolls Online has had its time in the spotlight, bugs and all included, so now it’s time for that focus to shift to the new IP on the block. However, before the complete launch that will undoubtedly be full of server stability problems, balance issues, and complaints from the typical “I hate this game, yet I play it” players, let us bask in the glow of pre-launch hype just a bit longer.

Ten Ways VR Could Make MMOs More Real

General -  Column

At last week's Game Developers Conference, people were lined up to try Sony's new virtual reality tech and from all the hubbub, it appeared VR's become the new (old) brass ring in game development the way the Kinect and the PSMove were a few years ago. But how would throwing VR into the mix improve games beyond the possibility of making them more “real”? Posted Mar 30, 2014 by Neilie Johnson

5 Reasons You Should Play Warriors in MMOs

General -  Column

Over the years players have had to make the important decision of which class to play the first time they boot up a new MMO. For some this decision requires weeks, or even months of research. Some just pick what's hot on the forums, and others have a harder time trying to name their characters. But let me tell you that you should just roll a Warrior. Always roll Warrior!Posted Feb 26, 2014 by David North

The Best & Worst Things About ESO

Elder Scrolls Online -  Column

If you've turned on a computer in the last week, you've probably heard the news: Zenimax is finally pulling back the veil on Elder Scrolls Online. Beginning with the lifting of the press NDA last week and now the total opening of the floodgates, MMORPG has been on the cutting edge every step of the way. I have remained silent, a member of the weekend betas and an occasional visitor to the 24/7 internal test, still bound to NDA. That time has come. Posted Feb 17, 2014 by Christopher Coke

Six Indie RPGs to Watch in 2014

General -  Column

2014 has barely begun and it already looks like it will be a banner year for the single-player, or small group, role playing game. This level of RPG game development has been largely missing for the past decade but thanks in large part to crowd-sourced funding, both "big house" and independently developed RPGs are back in vogue. In The List today, we take a look at six independent RPGs that are set to debut this year. Posted Jan 27, 2014 by Suzie Ford

General -  Column

2013 was a great year for the hybrid MMO with some truly solid contenders coming forth to earn your playtime.

The Worst MMOs of 2013

General -  Column

Even in the best of years, we come across games that just aren’t very good. Whether it is the poor writing and forgettable story of Asura Force or the ultra-grindy repetitive questing of Ragnarok Online 2, some games just aren’t worth your time. There are games that should be good and aren’t which somehow makes them even worse. This year was light on releases but there was no shortage of bad games vying for your attention.Posted Jan 17, 2014 by Christopher Coke

Five Fiction IPs We Want to See As MMOs

General -  Column

Sometimes I don’t know what is more fun. Speculating on upcoming games, brainstorming of what could make a great game, or actually playing new games. Speculating about upcoming games is always interesting. Unfortunately playing new games sometimes is anything but interesting… I’m looking at you Avatar Star, Daimonin, Crime Craft and others of your ilk. One recent discussion lead us to think about what current properties would make for interesting MMOs.Posted Jan 16, 2014 by Robert Lashley

10 Things I Miss From Older MMOs

EverQuest -  Column

Back in 1999, Everquest helped launch the MMO genre. Nearly fifteen years and twenty expansions later, EQ is still chugging along.

As we embark on an exciting new year of MMO releases, we reflect back on the year that was. Though 2013 was light on new MMOs, it was filled to the brim with games fighting for our attention.

Five Lessons MMOs Can Learn From DayZ

General -  Column

For the past few months I have heard all the hype surrounding DayZ. I have watched RipperX go on and on about how great it is. I saw the demos, watched a few videos, but still did not fully get the idea. Flashback a few weeks when the standalone became available on Steam and I decided to spend the money on the game to see what all of this talk was about.Posted Jan 7, 2014 by Garrett Fuller
