What is a Browser MMO?

A group of games that encompass quite a large array of titles. Browser MMOs were once limited to strategy titles like Forge of Empires and Clash of Clans. That is no longer the case, as more advanced browser games take the stage. Full fledged MMO features such as raiding, faction PvP, and guild support are finding their way into the land of browser games. At some point in time, we expect a game as technically impressive as World of Warcraft to make it’s way here.

The vast of majority of these browser titles are no download MMORPGs. Typically employing flash or simple ajax/php scripts (getting technical!), these games can be played from anywhere. A handful require a unity download, but is typically not an issue unless perhaps one is playing at work. But who would ever be doing that?? No one here I assure you…

But to that point, these games do have a large appeal to be played casually. They deliver a legitimate sense of satisfaction and achievement without the time commitment. Additionally, the games typically can be jumped in and out of on a whim. This is pretty appealing as people find themselves constrained by other activities (and other games).

Some browser MMO games actually go one step further. Automated movement, combat, and even questing is now a popular feature. That’s right. Players can now play and level up without actually playing the game. It’s a pretty strong divergence from the massive grinding the genre used to be known for. While this will undoubtedly be a strong selling point for some, it will equally be a turn off for others. It’s important to get this sorted out early when starting a new game.

The low barrier to entry for this sub-genre also makes it unique. Some indie developers are getting into the scene and finding their place. We’re seeing creative efforts by these developers that will ultimately improve browser games. The positives of no download gameplay is one less things for developers and customers alike to worry about. This allows for a focus on more creative aspects. Unfortunately, this low barrier to entry also means there is a large number of bad games.

There’s only so much time in the world to curate a strong list of titles, but we do our best. These browser based games and no download MMORPGs represent a strong mix of options for all of our readers. From strategy offerings to hack and slash to those fully automated titles, you’ll find a bit of everything on this page. Enjoy! And don’t play at work! (Unless you’re really bored or need a break or just need to finish one more quest or…well you decide what’s best.)
