WORLD OF WARCRAFT
8 BEST MMOS AVAILABLE NOW
Right off the bat is the entry to this list that everyone expected. World of Warcraft is the MMORPG; the predecessor to most mechanics found in almost every single MMO to date, and it’s still the king after 13 years at the top. Blizzard originally released WoW in November of 2004, and has since seen six expansion packs released, every time introducing more content into this already vast and boundless world. Set in the fictional world of Azeroth (and elsewhere, depending on how much you’ve played), the game peaked at 12 million subscribers in 2010, setting the record for the most subscribed MMORPG ever made.
WoW allows players to create their character based on a variety of different parameters; gender, race, and class. From here, you’re placed into the world and given a story to follow, but the freedom is mostly yours – you could follow the story and participate in side-quests, or you could head straight into the high-level areas (should you wish to die repeatedly). The community is still thriving, despite not quite being as active as it used to be, and the graphics aren’t the greatest, but its almost a guarantee that you’ll have fun if you make your way into the World of Warcraft.
