I'm mainly refering to current day maple story. In general, I feel the game has developed a lot & for the better since when it first came out. I think its a great game. They are constantly releasing new patches so over time, the game has gotten a lot of new content. Sure it has a cash shop but with maple trade system you can sell items through it that you find in the game for cash shop cash. And really, cash shop isnt really required, a lot of it is cosmetics. Also, I notice they continue to step up security to get rid of hackers (of course you cant get rid of them all). And recently the new patch worked on making the game less grindy (of course its always going to be grindy cause its a mmo). I feel the game has more dignity then a lot of other bigger name modern 3d mmos. Plus I enjoy the oldskool 2dness of it too. Graphics arnt everything. Its a fun game. Its definately not perfect but its good for what it is. All this applies to nexon too, which is their company. Nexon seems to get too much unnessicary crap from people too. Id rather take nexon any day of the week over something like EA or Activision lol.
