Neither you’ll see scantily clad elves doing their stuff while you’re too busy to actually play. So what’s new? Keep reading this article as we guide you through the games that, in our opinion, better represent South Korean’s game developers creativity!
1 – Magna Carta : Tears Of Blood
Released in 2005, MGTOB ought to have been among the most remarkable role-playing games of the last decade.
Magna Carta has a variety of attributes worth rooting for : a new battle system, an outstanding character design and a visual style that is top notch. Magna Carta is a beautiful-looking videogame. Furthermore, these attractive designs have translated nicely into electronic form with sharp animations and remarkable surroundings ranking among the elite concerning detail. Additionally, it is worth pointing out that a Manhwa artist, Hyung-tae Kim, made a name for himself thanks to this game. In fact he will also work in the The War of Genesis series and the MMOBlade and Soul. It’s wonderful to see an artist making his title by designing the artwork out of Video Games, and this reveals just how seriously South Korean press has taken being paying attention to the matter.
2 – Pangya Fantasy Golf

3 – The King Of Fighters 2001/2002
SNK, the Japanese software house who made the King of Fighter matches, were moving down hill concerning company and become bankrupted in 2000 and could not afford to generate any more matches. The operations were transferred to South Korea, once the South Korean firm, Eolith took charge and continued the growth of King of Fighters in 2001 and 2002. There are a number of excellent things about TKOF 2001 but, on the other hand, Eolith create some horrible progress in artwork design when compared with the striking look of KOF2000. The character portraits appeared really ugly and lots of the characters were dull in contrast to the many we’ve seen in the past episodes. The better things of this release is that Eolith made many new characters to the sport, for example May Lee, a South Korean Tae Kwon Do fighter that has a standard fighting style and a ‘hero’ fighting mode, representing the Korean group. These characters are still property of Eolith and will never appear in the later chapters of the saga.
4 – Ragnarock Series
Ragnarok DS that was published for the Nintendo DS at 2008 pays respect to the initial online game, using the majority of its resources to be vents on the DS.

The internet game was notorious for being an practically impossible to reach level 200 cap and using really insistent and grindly gameplay to maintain the fanbase living for the game because of this. This game does alot of matter the PC online counterpart cannot. The game improves the presentation alot such as having a narrative, personality portraits because the players talk to the NPCs and enhance animations for characters and critters the players experience in the game. Additionally, it has arena boss battles and thing upgrades in the sport.However, another game based off their favorite MMO game. Does this mean South Koreans have succeeded in what they’ve set out to do with their online network? So should not it be a surprise that this is actually the third match on the list that is a spin from their MMO start. Just like Audition, it’s only a shame that this game was just released in Korea and Japan. An North European and American interface could of been nice.
