0

Whether or not you consider yourself too old to put on that Hulk or Sparkle Twilight costume and prance (“HULK PRANCE”) around the neighborhood for free candy, MMOs make it easy for us to regress into the spirit of our childhoods with fun Halloween events. As always, there is a lot to see, do, and get this year, especially if you are into the spookier side of the season.

In fact, pretty much every major (and most minor) MMORPGs have an event going on, which is why we have compiled this handy list to get you started on your quest to hit them all!
