The beauty of massively multiplayer online games, or MMOs, is that they allow you to progress on a massive scale alongside players around the globe. This leads people to work fervently to upgrade their stats, kit out their characters, and dominate the world. However, despite this awesome concept, so few MMOs have dared to put players in an environment with giant robots. If you grew up watching ‘Gundam’ or loving ‘Transformers’ then it has always been your dream to pilot a giant robot that can destroy your enemies. Fortunately, there are finally a couple of mecha inspired games worth checking out.
There aren’t a ton of mecha inspired MMOs out on the market and blessed few that are actually getting major studio support. Still, that doesn’t mean that you should put your dreams of piloting a massive mech into the proverbial garage. There are a few games that are still living the dream. First up on our list of suggested titles to check out is MechQuest, which was developed by the team behind AdventureQuest 3D. In MechQuest you fight off players in massive robots and you can play it on both your phone or your computer’s browser.
If you are looking for big-budget mech battles then you are going to want to check out Gundam Online Wars. Based off of the legendary franchise, Gundam Online Wars puts players into massive 52 v 52 battles where you can play as some of the iconic figures and mechs from the franchise — definitely worth a glance.
