Maplestory is a widely known online game, where people can make online characters to meet other virtual versions of people around the world. The game is very successful, and has about 75 million players. There are many aspects of this game that make it so successful.
In the game, you can attack monsters and complete quests to gain experience, which you need to advance onto a new level. At the beginning of the game, you can choose whether you want to be a theif, pirate, magician, warrior, or bowman. Each type of character has their own pros and cons. But that's not all you can do. You can collect valuable items, set up stores, get cool new equipment, and much, much more!
Another part of the game is the Cash Shop. That's where you can spend money to buy stuff that you can't get anywhere else. With one dollar, you can get a thousand NX, which is the currency in the Cash Shop. But if you can't spend any money on the cash shop, no worries. You can use the Maple Trading System. That's where you are able to trade items in exchange for NX.
In the game, you interact with millions of other people. I have met people from France, Israel, Argentina, and tons of other places, and it's incredibly fun learning about them and their culture.
