Not everyone likes to share their game experience with other players. Some of the gamers prefer to go through their path alone, without being forced to cooperate with other people. Fortunately, most of the modern roleplaying games are solo-friendly. It doesn't matter if you want to play the game only for plot or if you like to see the living world, filled with characters played not by AI but by different persons — even the most social projects can be suitable to play as Solo MMORPG.

More About Solo MMORPG

It might not seem obvious, but many players prefer to play alone in MMORPGs. This choice can be caused by the will to play together with other people without changing a videogame. Usually, casual players prefer to spend their time on the solo campaign, which takes much less time than multiplayer part of the game. For non-hardcore players, complicated multiplayer competitions and long raids are just rare addition to essential PvE content, which is usually much more immersive and entertaining because of the plot features. Even though some players don't have much time or will to compete with professional fans of the hardcore gameplay, so they use multiplayer option only to have fun with their friends.

Another type of gamers who choose Solo MMORPG is fascinated by the conception of sharing the game world with thousands of other players. It's much more exciting and immersive to play the game, where characters around you are controlled by other players with absolutely different stories and lives, even if you don't communicate with them. It makes a significant influence on roleplaying and immersion of the gameplay.

Some Solo MMORPG is too big and detailed so that you rarely can face with other players. For example, most of the sci-fi space videogames have colossal game maps, full of various locations to explore and travel, so players just spread around the map in search of adventures. Usually, these projects have great plot and quests, which takes most of the gameplay time.
