65 EVE ONLINE
Release year 2003 Last position 12
Andy A complex, uncompromising space sandbox light years ahead of any other multiplayer game. Everything that happens in EVE, from giant space battles to buying and selling resources, is driven by the players. CCP only step in under very strict, and rare, circumstances. It’s a game notorious for its unchecked scamming and piracy, but that kind of player freedom is what defines it. It’s a ruthless online universe that trades instant accessibility for rich, rewarding, and bottomlessly deep systems. Many will stumble at the first hurdle as they’re presented with a baffling UI and seemingly endless tutorials, but get past that and you’ll find the most unique massively multiplayer game in the world. You’ll never forget your first fleet operation or the first time you tentatively fly into the lawless, terrifying nullsec.
