other than LaTale I can't think of anything that used MS's gameplay/art-style.
furthermore... LaTale was numerous years after.

MapleStory isn't an (arcade-style) beat-em-up.
The art in GC/Elsword also has little, if any, resemblance to MS.

I have never heard of those but omg they do look incredibly similar in gameplay and art. Are they still up?

(is Mini Fighter a beat-em-up or platformer? Screenshots look a bit confusing.)

Have I been involved in the wrong MMO circles for too many years? I never heard of any platformers other than MS and always heard about the endless Diablo clones or 3D action RPG ones. ._.

Agree that GC/Elsword is pretty different to MS.

The other games in that list, are most likely dead. I've played some of them and honestly all they are are watered down versions of MS trying to make money off nostalgia factor.

So what happens if you fall of the edge? *cough*

Looks interesting, but like always it'll probably be 10 years before we even start hearing about an English release...if they decide to bring it over here at all.

I'm rather amused by the constant "Woaaa!!!" from rather simple things.

Change your characters hair length? Woaa!!
Destructible terrain? Woaaa!!!
Turn into a sheep? Woaaa!!!

Not that I find the game to be unappealing. It definitely as a certain appeal to it. But these Koreans need to wander around their own market some more. Clearly they've been missing what's been out there for many years.

Looks exactly like a 3D Mario game meets Diablo/WoW (WHOA SHOCKER!!! A new MMO that's unoriginal?!).
Which, is to say, like every other 3D action game, just with cartoony graphics.

Ah Nexon... They don't really seem to realize what made MS famous in the first place - it wasn't because it was like every other MMO at the time, the reason is actually the OPPOSITE of that.

Or because it was one of a very small handful of free-to-play MMOs at the time.

I highly doubt that's any part of the reason why MS became so popular worldwide, or more importantly, has such longevity considering F2P games don't live long.

Let' be honest, it's popular because it's cute, easy to understand, and grindy enough for Koreans to get involved.

The number of MMO's at the time were limited. But as a kid, the idea of playing a game for free, with the cash shop being 100% optional, is a big selling point.

Most games I played at the time had a perk you were desperately starting to desire, as you continued to play, and when things got harder. Eventually, you'd reach a point where cash users outweighed the free ones, and you either grind for money or drop your parents wallet.

That philosophy may be dead now. But at the time, that was a major attraction point for many people I knew who played it.

The gameplay was a step up from Runescape and Neopets at the very least. Which I might add, are both still running, despite being free to play.

The funny part being the bolded is more or less what defines F2P now lol. F2P is in most cases synonymous with "pay2win".
