Torn - Web-based MMORGP

Screen shot of home

I've been playing this game for more than 3 years. Some say it's addicting. I say it's bullshit. Although it's fun at first, when you get the idea it starts to get boring and frustrating. But why have I been playing it all these years? Because my friends are still playing it. The only one thing that keeps the game alive and draw my attention is its community.

Introduction from the home page:

Torn City is an exciting, gritty, real-life crime RPG (role playing game). Online RPG games are addictive and great fun to play. Torn City is no exception!

As a new player to the game you'll start off weak and poor. Beware, the murky underworld of Torn City shows no mercy so be on guard from the off. Opportunists will not think twice to mug or hospitalize you for the few quid. As an online strategy game as well as an online RPG game, the rules are very simple; Build a new life. Get to the top. Avoid being killed. Choose any route to get there. In Torn City you can be ANYONE and do ANYTHING.

To earn money and increase your status you'll need to get your hands dirty and commit crimes and attack other players. The stronger you are the more battles you win so prepare to train hard in the gyms.
Other 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 casinos, 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.
Like many MMORPG's (massively multiplayer online role playing games), Torn City is very active and has over 40,000 daily players. Torn City is a very in-depth role playing game with constant feature updates so there's always something new to discover. This is what sets Torn City aside from other text based RPG.
Start playing, keep playing and unlock more features, opportunities and discover more truths about this murky city.

  5. I rather play something less complicated.
