DC Universe Online is a great way to get into MMORPGs
For many getting into MMORPGs can be quite a daunting thing. Despite being a gamer for over 20 years this was the one area that I never dared stepped into. If I am honest I really could not give you a exact reason why, but it just always felt so intimidating to me. I was a guy would would happily play StreetFighter II competitively in a jam packed arcade without breaking a swear, but the thought of a MMORPG scared the hell out of me.
And then I heard about a MMORPG set in the DC Universe I was very intrigued to say the least. I am a huge DC fan and the fact this was coming onto console as well as PC made me think this very well could be the way for me to get my foot in the door of the MMORPG world. I actually got very excited and even pre ordered the game for the Playstation 3. And then I started to hear about all the fees that you would have to pay in order to play this game and that really put me off.
Well for over a year now DC Universe Online now is free to play on both Playstation 3 and PC and I cannot recommend this game enough. I think calling it a RPG may be going a bit far, but if you are a gamer like I was who is a little intimidated about getting into MMORPG’s then this is a great start. Hey if Batman can’t ease you into MMORPG’s then who can?
Of course if you really get into the game and want to expand it then you can through some micro transactions to power up your character, but for the most part the free to play experience is more than enough fun.
