MasonicGamer.com: Welcome to the two part editorial series, looking at why you should try out MMO’s and in which style. Starting with the Sandbox Version. A non linear, self created adventure style type of online games, open for you to create your own story and enjoy the fruits of your actions, all of which impact the world or universe full of people similar to you.
With the latest trend of triple A titles coming out with the “Always Online” requirement, the question asked often is… Why not just play an MMO? Single Player is centred on the campaign and an alone, isolated experience which is tailored for lone receiver. Massively Multiplayer Online, are as the name explains, massive, social and group orientated adventure style game set in a persistent world online. Why therefore play a Single Player designated game with “Always Online” DRM, when you could be utilizing that Internet need whilst playing a fully fledged Massively Multiplayer Online game. Not only does this provide you more value, it also makes more sense!
