Week in Review
My game of the week was Wurm
Online. This game from OneTooFree AB is a real sandbox
game akin to the multi-user dungeons (MUDs) of the previous generation.
It runs in Java and actually looks pretty good. The real issue is
whether or not today's gamer is willing to work for his game anymore. I
mean, are we completely spoiled by quest non-player characters with
exclamation points above their heads?
It only took me one night of playing to answer my questions about style="font-style: italic;">Wurm Online. I'm
too lazy to play a MUD these days--no matter how pretty that MUD is.
So, Wurm Online
does not make the list. That does not mean it is a bad game. It just
doesn't fit my style.
Like a girlfriend I just can't stay mad at, style="font-style: italic;">Mythos has
reclaimed the number 1 slot on my list. I truly believe the game is good
enough to be a pay-to-play game. Luckily, we'll get it for free.
Next week, I will download Cabal
Online based on a reader tip.
Here are my Top Ten Free-to-Play Games for the week.

Even if the current lag in development has me worried about
style="font-style: italic;">Mythos, I can't
deny that it is the best game on this list.
I may have hit a wall for what I can do in
style="font-style: italic;">Mabinogi for free
recently.My character ages too fast for me to play casually.

There are so many things I want to say about

Dream of Mirror
Online really bucks the tradition of games from Asia
getting a poor English translation.

Runners is a fun game to jst pick up and play casually. It
works better as a single player game than as a MMOG to me. style="font-weight: bold;">

allowed to talk about it, though.

If Magic World Online
had teh graphics of any other game on this list, it would be in the top

Runes of Magic
has the look of a polished game. Here's hoping the translation gets as
much attention as the graphics.
would make an awesome online multiplayer game for PC or any console. As
a MMOG, it loses something after 20 levels or so.
