Realms of Despair
I have been playing Realms of Despair for close to 8 years now, so this review is not coming from someone who has little or no experience with the game. Aside from the seemingly endless game content Realms provides, the community is stronger than anything else. They have a very good Newbie Council to help those new players struggling with the life of learning a MUD and overall great administration running the game. Some of the friends I have made on this game are friendships that will last the rest of my life. Realms also has Reunion's every year, where you can meet some of the people you have been gaming and sharing a lot of your stories with. No matter what aspect of gaming you enjoy, Realms of Despair has it. A strong economy for trading, lots of Mobs to kill for some very nice loot, Role Playing, Quests, a building port (For those future builder of areas), and the list just goes on. Don't just take my word for it, open up your mind and give it a try. I know I will never regret starting to play this game, and if you give it a chance I know you will feel the same exact way.
