This is the sixth match of GameOgre.com’s MMO Showdown 9. This annual tournament determines the best MMORPG out of 16 games. The winner will be named MMORPG of the Year. GameOgre.com also has a Prediction Contest for forum members each year for a $10 Game Card or $10 of Riot Points.
As the first round of MMO Showdown 9 gets closer to the end, this match pits two very different games with extremely huge communities. RuneScape is a Free MMO pioneers and is one of the most reviewed games on GameOgre.com. RuneScape has had many updates and changes over the years that have helped to keep it above most other games in the industry for years. Minecraft has also had a good history of updates and pioneering a niche. However, Minecraft requires a one-time buy while RuneScape is free to start playing. Minecraft is also under new management recently as Microsoft has purchased Mojang. That said, don’t be surprised to see this match go either way as both are strong games with passionate communities.
