Great Gaming Crusade: "It took the MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game) scene by storm. It has inspired many fan-based media, an anime series, a trading card game, and even commercials. Its F2P (Free to Play), P4F (Pay for Fun) system has received both praise and backlash. It’s the game that many first time MMO players began, get addicted to, and finally quit realizing they have spent non-replaceable hours and money on. Without further ado, it is no other game than MapleStory and even with all of the criticism, it’s a good game for what it is worth."
