Threshold RPG - A 13 year old role play required MMO Keeps Getting Better

From BrightHub: "Threshold RPG is a text based, role play required MMO that is one of the most unique games on the internet. Staying in character is actively enforced (though out of character channels exist) and you must be 18 years or older to play. This article looks at some of the recent additions to the game.

Threshold RPG Continues to Strive for Excellence

Threshold RPG opened to the public in 1996 when the internet was unknown to most and text based games were the state of the art. 13 years later it retains its popularity due to an incredibly engaging world, a rich history, and a mature player community that takes role playing to a high level. Not content to rest on its laurels or its success, the staff of Threshold are always adding new features to the game. This article looks at some of the more recent additions."

It is really amazing that an old school game like this continues to thrive.

It must have an amazing community of players to keep on trucking, as well as some very devoted developers.

I definitely have to check it out.

That is some SERIOUS longevity.

Imagine the real game history after 13 years. WOW

Indeed. The community is probably what makes the game so amazing. Of course, the game is what attracts the community, so I guess it is a which came first, the chicken or the egg type thing.

Threshold's community definitely keeps people coming back for more. Having played on and off for almost 10 years now, I can say that it's the people who play the game (and of course the game itself) that keep me coming back.

It's like my little home on the internet :)

Unlike some games, which last a long time but have high player turnover, Threshold has many of its players remaining for years - quite a few have been playing for over a decade. Because the game is constantly having new content added, it's practically impossible to exhaust it through playing; it is possible to paint your character into a corner, but even then you can just create a new character and explore some new aspect of the game. I've been playing for nearly seven years, and there's heaps that I've not seen.

Report back here with your opinions.

Tell us what you think, what you experience there, and all that jazz.

Tabula Rasa had the tech along with HellGate: London but if word of mouth and a strong community don't keep players coming back it doesn't matter how savvy the game is.

Muckbeast3595d ago

Great point. The borked up chat of TR made it so community really never formed - a darn shame. :(

As for Hellgate: that idiotic subscription for a Diablo clone strangled it in the crib.

I have enjoyed threshold for many year. The game keeps growing and evolving at incredible rate enhancing and adding new features. I expect it will continue to deliver it's top notch entertainment for many years to come.
