Populated 2 or 2.5D Game! (Think Maple/Rag)

AdvancedTechAdvancedTech New York, NYPosts: 165Member

Like the Title says, I'm looking for a game like MapleStory (2D) or Ragnarok (2.5D)! All I ask it for it to be very populated with a lot of people playing! Thanks!

    My terminology may be way off, but I thought games like orginal Doom were 2.5d, which should be a catagory Wurm falls under, since it renders like a 3d game, but for all intensive purposes, the game only recognized things on a 2d grid.

     

    Anyway, I *do* get where you are coming from, so I suggest Dungeon Fighter Online, which is a side-scroller ala Final Fight. Very fun, and there's usually quite a few people on during peak hours in the afternoon. It's a state-side only game though, and you catch a lot of pinoys using proxy servers late at night... they're jerks if you can't speak the language.

    GT, are you ever unable to find a way to sneak a Wurm suggestion in? Even based on your thinking, I'd still label the original doom as a 3D first person game, because the game is played through the eyes of the character you are controlling and the game has a discernible height, width, and length. As with games such as Wurm, Guild Wars, FFXI, and other 3D games of like, they are rendered in a way that allows them to be thought of has having three quantifiable and distinct dimensions. These games have a visual "depth."

    Games like Ragnarok, Diablo series, Lineage, and Ultima Online are considered to be 2.5D because the way they are presented gives the illusion of having 3 dimensions, but usually the height (from your feet to your head) is superimposed onto the background (Floor).

    Games like Maplestory, Dungeon Fighter Online, WonderKing, and "old-school" platformers, are considered 2D because they lack a visual depth.

    To the OP: As far as 2.5 games are concerned, Mythos and the Torchlight MMO are in the works, but I'm not sure what all is currently availible besides the ones I listed.

    Get pissy if you want, but it's not like I'm suggesting Wurm for him. I'm just saying I thought 2.5d is the way Doom was rendered back in the day, and it's the same tech Wurm uses. There aren't any other MMOs that actually do that, but after wikipedia-ing the definition, yes, it's about using 3d tech on a 2d plane. Technically the later SimCity games are 2.5d.

    Now go find a Darkfall fanboi to harass for suggesting people try it.

    Dofus is an isometric looking game, very populated F2P, but turn-based combat.
