Free-to-play MMOs are all-too-often an embarassment to the genre. Some may have a great personality, but almost all of them have the looks of a Thalidomide baby who ended up as a burn victim later in life. Nexon wants to reverse this unpleasant trend. They are pushing a whole portfolio of free games that feature beautiful art direction and solid graphics.

Dungeon Fighter Online is the largest MMO on the planet. Over 200 million users are registered right now, and the game has seen 2.2 million concurrent users over in Asia. After watching (and playing) a demo, I can see what all the fuss is about. DFO is everything you love about the old fighting games (Street Fighter, Marvel VS. Capcom, etc) amped up to the scale of a massive online game.

DMO can be played on a gamepad. The cartoony graphics would look terribly dated, if it weren't for the wild array of different sprites, styles and backgrounds that decorate the world. If you have a background in arcade fighters, you owe it to yourself to try Dungeon Fighter Online. This is what happens when a fighting game knocks up an RPG.
You can customize your character, level and boost their stats and combat effectiveness with sub-classes. The Slayer (a demon-possessed warrior) can make a pact with his demon for greater power, while the Fighter can learn how to pound faces and throw land mines and other “nasty” abilities. The Gunner can even launch giant missiles (or a huge metal fist) at his foes. What's not to love?
