It’s a hard task to choose the best MMORPG games, the ones you should be playing right now or in the near future. But here at MMORPG Gate we want to tell you the names you must pay attention to; the games that you should play, because they’re some of the finest examples of their kind. This is a top that is constantly changing, so make sure to visit often. We all love on-line games, or else we wouldn’t be here in the first place, would we? Every day you come home from work or school, tired, bored, stressed, and what a better way to relax than a few hours spent in the world of your favorite MMORPG? You like your mighty paladin/mage/rogue/etc., doing some quests, hunting, maybe an instance or two. Everything is great until you suddenly crash into those annoying things that exist in very game: bugs, annoying people you know, that stuff that makes you throw the PC out the window.Official vs Private MMORPG servers - Ever since computer games rocked our world there were certain individuals out there who were not willing to pay for it. The industry tried by any means to stop them. They ranged from simple methods of CD check or unique serial numbers to more complicated methods like DRMs or items needed to finish the game which came along with the original game box. The more they tried, the less results they got. Games were and always will be pirated, unless of course, the perfect security system is invented. But when all seemed to be lost a hero came forth... the MMORPG!Real Life VS MMORPGs - Are MMORPG Games your life or do you prefer the real thing?Grinding: Love it or Hate it - Is grinding your favorite hobby in MMORPGs?Permanent death in MMORPGs - Is this a feature we should see more often?Canceled MMORPGs that would have rocked! - Some were canceled during the MMORPG beta stage, others didn't even get there
