Meridian 59 is an online role-playing game (RPG). Online RPGs are also referred to as MMORPGs, MMOGs, and other acronyms. It's a very confusing bit of alphabet soul for a very cool concept: you will get the opportunity to meet and interact with hundreds of other players in a computer game.

But, you will find your favorite RPG elements in the game: you can wield swords and shields and cast spells in order to vanquish horrible monsters, run quests for citizens of the various towns, explore areas while searching for adventure, and build a unique character that can be recognized for his or her individual heroic actions by others. You will make friends, perhaps make some enemies, and have fun playing in a fantasy world.

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
