Top 5 Online Games
Cronous is an MMORPG that allows you to play from four classes: Barbarian, Warrior, Mage, and Valkyrie. Once you’ve selected your character, you basically have to go around killing things until you get to level five, at which point, you can upgrade your stats and become a more efficient killer. You can go on a multitude of missions called quests, where you either kill a certain number of creatures, or kill a bunch of critters and return an item. You have the option to pay for additional features, but do not have to. Apart from the extremely dull missions, and limited skills, the graphics are great, the monsters are very detailed, and the players are few, which is why I place Cronous as number 5 in my top five.
This game is about giant battling robots, called mecha. In the beginning of the game, you come up with a name for your player, and the color of your mecha. It has a variety of jobs to do, but once you’ve completed them, there really isn’t that much to do, besides battle other mecha and level up. The graphics are fantastic, considering it’s a two dimensional game. You can buy as many as 5 mecha at a time, and equip them with a massive variety of weapons. Each weapon shows a semi-unique way of killing your opponent, giving this game a 4 on my review.
3. “Half-Life 2”
Half-Life 2 follows the travels of Black Mesa scientist, Gordon Freeman, in an apocalyptic future where evil aliens from an alternate dimension, called the Combine, rule. He is brought out of stasis from 20 years ago by a mysterious figure with a briefcase called the G-man, whom, as clearly states in the beginning of the game, has Freeman employed for unknown beings. The G-man puts Freeman on a train, headed for the dreaded City 17, where Freeman meets his old friend, Barney Calhoune. He directs him to Dr. Kliener, a scientist from Black mesa, who informs him of their current situation, and forces him into a mission that will change the face of the planet, forcing me to put Half-Life 2 at number 3 on my top 5.
Runescape is a truly MASSIVE Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), where you can do thousands of things, such as fish, cook, cut down trees, craft, farm, chat with other players, or just go around killing things. It has over 430 quests to do, though only a few are available to people who are free to play. It has a place, just like Wall Street, called the Grand Exchange, where a player can purchase any tradable object. It is a great game, though the graphics are a little sketchy. You can customize your own character to look like you, or like your fantasy self. These are the reasons why I believe it to be in second place, mostly due to graphics.
1. “Garry’s Mod”
Garry’s Mod is a 3-D ragdoll physics sandbox. You can do virtually anything, like make a plane out of a bookshelf, make a rocket-powered chair, make funny weapons, and anything else you could possibly imagine. It exists for the sole purpose of entertaining yourself, talking with friends, making animated movies, building crazy contraptions, etcetera. You can create almost anything you want, shape the world as you see fit, and destroy it all. To play the game, you MUST either have Half-Life 2, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2: Blue Shift, Half-Life 2: Death Match, or The Orange Box. Trust me when I say that this game is totally worth it when you buy it. It’s hard at first, but it’s easy once you’ve learned how to use it, which is why I place this game as number one game of my top 5 game reviews.
