Black Desert Online – The Best MMORPG?

I believe this is currently the best MMORPG in the gaming scene right now.

Black Desert Online – First Impressions

Have you ever played an MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) that’s so big in scale that it made you feel like you were in a real breathing living world all on its own? The kind that would want you to spend hours of endless gameplay experience just so that you could learn the game and complete  each quest that is as rewarding as the next? Or probably made you dream about it in your sleep and wake up the next day just for you to get up from your bed, eat breakfast, exercise a little, take a bath, turn on your PC and play for the next 16 hours and feel nothing but fulfillment?

I have. And for the first time since Ragnarok Online Philippines back in 2003, this game has made me stayed glued to my seat longer than I would expect from any other MMORPG that I’ve ever played in my entire life. Not to mention that the original Counter Strike back in 2000 have taken much of my game time for as long as I can remember. This one has made me played more than 16 hours a day during the first 2 months since I bought the game.

The Gameplay

Black Desert Online is a game that totally defines MMORPG and I mean it. To me this is THE MMORPG that I have been looking for. This is the kind of game that has visuals seemingly exquisite and serene and dry and cool as you continue your journey throughout the different territories of Balenos, Serendia, Mediah, and Valencia. Where different guilds can conquer each and every territory belonging to the region through node wars. And there is also a naval war! This game feels so alive the moment you step in. And it’s the kind of game that you would want to come back to over and over again.

Character customization here is very fluid. The game mechanics feature life skills where you develop each of your characters personal skills like cooking, grinding, alchemy, chopping wood, heating metals and so on which allows you to take part in individual quests made available through each town. You can grow the horses you tame from the field and breed each pair to develop a new higher tier horse used for travel or combat. The game also allows you to hire workers feed them and send them to work to help you harvest materials for crafting your preferred items to be used by yourself or to be sold via the marketplace. And of course the best part of the game, node wars, naval combat guild wars, conquest, boss hunting, and player vs player via forced function, basic dueling and through the Red Battlefield where teams are divided into two. The game combat mechanics are so fluid, to me I think they’re even more fluid compared to Dragon Nest or Blade and Soul. Gearing is never an issue in this game either. The cash content in this game is so meaningful and somewhat necessary but doesn’t entitle you to need it. And most of all this is not a pay to win game. Currently the game is capped at 60. And an additional character will be added to its already wide roster of 12. 

Black Desert Online was released in South Korea in 2014 and March 2016 Internationally. Developed by Pearl Abyss and published by Kakao Games for PC.
