the secret world or, tsw as it is known by its ever growing fan base, is a free to play open world rpg adventure game. I looked into this when i got tired of fps games, and endeavored to find something different to indulge my minds ever yearning need to be placated. no easy task i can assure you, but tsw hits the mark, it has a story line which will take you from the gloomy rural outskirts of kingston town all the way to the frozen warewolf ridden hell of transilvania, along the way you will run through, tombs, deserts, hidden tree fortresses, grave yards, and encampments of npcs ready to guide you on your way as you journey through the vast and diverse landscape that is the secret world.
the story line itself is complex, and if you fail to watch part of it you will find yourself wondering what is going on throughout the rest of the game, but then half the fun of this game is that you do actually learn from it, and its maturity level is fairly high, unless you have an iq of 140 and consider yourself to be "quite the historian" or your primary place of residence is in a library i doubt that you will get all of the obscure historical references left by the game on hand, and will more than likely have to do a bit of light reading before it all starts to take form. to be fair, I think i learned more from this game about ancient european history and folklore than i did in school. you will also find that unless you have that knowledge you will probably be looking up solutions to quests online quite frequently, i know very few people that can speak all the languages that you would need to know to even begin to fathom what the quest is asking you to do. but that doesnt really work against it, the game has a built in browser for exactly that purpose, which has been adjusted to provide search results that will only give you a clue as to the answer and not give the entire game away.
they have obviously put alot of thought into it, and i liked that it took me a whole year to level up just to complete the main ability tree, it keeps you focused and goal oriented for a long time, even after you have finished the main story line, there are sub stories and seasonal stories constantly being released, plenty of which are free to play. id look into this one if you like adventure games, or rpgs, or massive online multiplayer games, and also enjoy an intellectual challenge, this might have what your looking for.
