    This is the second match of the second round of MMORPG Showdown 3. Although the match will be officially be decided in the Review Directory, this forum battle will be for extra comments and will serve as a tie breaker if one is needed for the match.

    Runescape should definitely be the winner here. Both games have grinding but Maple Story takes it to a whole new horrible level. Runescape has a lot of skills you can occupy with.

    I voted for RS against AQ Worlds and I feel the same against Maple Story. Maple Story is better than AQ Worlds but not better than Runescape.

    I love Maplestory. Even though it's all a grind, I love the grind- it's different than most games.

    It has this "charm" that just makes it fun to play. I can't really describe it, but it's more fun than Runescape.

    -->I'm sick of people saying it's too hard to level up. When you do level up, it just makes you feel all that much better. So stop complaining- it makes the game more rewarding when you get to lvl 100 in MS than in RS.

    i have to vote runescape on this one. maplestory is too much of
    a grind, and the gameplay in runescape is miles better than
    maplestory. although, i really don't mind graphics on MMORPGs,
    i couldn't stand maplestory's cartoony graphics.

    After losing to Maple Story in the first showdown, I wasn't expecting RuneScape to take the big lead like this. In fact, RuneScape has never even won a Showdown match until this year.

    About RuneScape

    RuneScape is a good game, but there are better MMOs. For an example,
    Guild Wars. :)

    Hahah, ouch, poor Runescape.

    I dunno, maybe it's just that Maplestory was only appealing to the simple-minded kids aged 5-10, like my little brother, I still play it to an extent, but it's getting boring.

    "[Time to move onto FPS games ]" Right you are my friend. :)


    I think I'll go with RuneScape, just because of the gameplay and versatility. And I really mean just because.

    Well, the tiebreaker voting is one-sided but the regular voting is getting closer.

    Yeah, seriously now, at least give a teensy bit of credit towards Runescape, as they are the only successful 3D browser MMORPG at the time, and Maid Marian isn't "successful." xD

    yeah runescape did okay but they are both really bad immature games. Really bad graphics and i would say they are for people that are under 10.

    Because 10 year olds inhabite it? that dont know the difference between a good game and a bad one?

    I didn't deny its success, just denying that its a good game.
