Torn City is a gritty text MMO with loads of features
While it’s pretty common to overlook text-based MMORPGs for their lack of 3-D visualization and sparkly particle effects, the truth is that these games often compensate for this factor by offering far more features and possibilities than you typically get in an MMO.
Consider Torn (formerly Torn City) a lesson in how full-featured text games can become. This robust browser MMO puts players in a gritty underworld of a fictional city, challenging them to climb the criminal ladder by any means necessary. How you will do that is completely up to you.
According to the game’s site, Torn has almost no end to the activities that you can perform: “Game features include starting or joining a faction, collecting and trading items, invest in Torn City stocks, avoid jail and hospital, undertake missions, race cars, get married, get a job or start a company, take education courses, win big in the casino, play poker, invest in the bank, shop for items, program viruses, read or write for the Torn City Times newspaper, buy multiple properties, travel, hunt… the list is endless.”
Just putting this out there in case you’re looking for something a little different in your gaming diet!
