So I need some help with MUD games. I am so sick and tired of visual games not being anything what I want/expect them to be that I think I need to start going backwards in my expectations. I have always heard MUD games were great. I would love to try one out but there are so many and not sure where to begin.
What I am looking for is a game with a ton of races/classes/skills and ENDLESS progression. So if i wanted to play for 10 years i could do that and never hit max level cap. Multiplayer is a plus as well but not 100% needed.
I prefer not to play one from early 1990's but if that's when the best ones were from lay them on my please. Ideally i would like to play a newer one (do they still make MUD's in 2016?).
Any and all help with this would be greatly appreciated.
