High Quality Korean MMOs Stage A Comeback to Western Market

Until 2012, the Korean video game industry generated more export revenue than all other Korean contents industries combined. And online games alone created 64.2% revenue, which made Korea one of the largest producers of MMO games, with more than 37% of the entire world market. The success of Korea’s online game exports is due to not only the favorable governmental policy but also the massive hits of several Korean MMOs in North American and European markets.

The story is too old to be commented.

"High Quality" and "Korean" don't even belong in the same sentence. I don't care what product market we're talking about. There's a reason even Korean companies outsource.

Scarlett Blade is ripping off the Queen's Blade IP, BLESS is ripping off Final Fantasy XIV assets, Aion and TERA are just terrible. Do I have to go on?

You've pretty much summed it up pretty well

"High Quality" and "Korean" don't even belong in the same sentence"

Actually I enjoy TERA a lot, love that you can play that mmorpg with a controller. Additionally, Samsung TV's are made in Korea and the best imo, or at least have to be in anyone's top 3 best tv manufacture's. So there goes your whole Korean and low quality theory.

TERA Rising is pretty good and I enjoy playing it.

I kinda stopped playing Vindictus but I may pick it back up once Guild Wars 2 starts to lul.

To call Tera terrible, LOL I don't think you ever played it or Aion. Tera is a great real time action MMO and Aion is a classic although not my cup of tea cause of the combat.

looking forward to Neverwinter as my next MMO!!

I played Korean, Chinese and Japanese MMORPGs.

And I have to say: the pay2win attitude companies have is exasperating.

I urge anyone playing a pay2win game to quit immediately. It's hardly even a game if someone can lay down a couple hundred dollars and curb-stomp f2p players without fail.

Tera online, and the subscription based games are typically not pay2win.

the guy who says korean and quality don't even belong in the same sentence have no clue, they have many products which are among the best if not the best in the world. Koreans view themselves very highly, they strive for excellence.

Most game developers in S. Korea are pretty self-dedicated on making decent MMO´s but lack experience so ive heard

Not trying to insult anyone but... The moment I clicked the link, I thought it was a map North-Korea's missile trajectories.
