Chalgyr's Game Room Writes
MUDs are not nearly as popular as they used to be. There are plenty of other options out there for players looking to get their online gaming fix, from World of Warcraft to Guild Wars 2 to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and loads of games in between. Still, all of these games still owes something of a debt to Multi-User Dungeons - or MUDs.
While the graphical games still provide a largest, brightest gaming experiences, there is still a lot of life left in these text-based classics. They more resemble tabletop Dungeons & Dragons sessions from years ago than the latest MMO, with a reliance on text, imagination and role-playing.
