Mind blown

Is anyone else really impressed by how detailed a world MapleStory is? I mean, obviously, it's been around for quite a while now and the developers want to keep the game going since it's successful and can be added to endlessly. But have you ever just sat back and thought about how every NPC and character in this game has some massive backstory? Whether there are quests connected to it or not. It blows my mind when I think about how every character in the game plays some role that ties into a bigger story.
.....
I think I've had too much caffeine.

    It is pretty impressive, though it's kind of sad how some of "these tales, long forgotten in the flows of time, are about legends which no one can recall..."
    (Kudoes to anyone who gets the reference, and basically saying it's unfortunate that some of the backstories of npc's + areas are lost due to the passage of time. ;;)

    I too enjoyed a lot of these stories in maple, especially when i just started playing. First time i stepped through the Gate to the Future i thought all of it was so cool. I also enjoyed seeing certain npc's pop up in different locations (and times), such as Athena Pierce. The game sure has a lot of cool stories and a lot of them tying into eachother. I think it was in the story of Luminous where you actually get to witness the breaking of the Seals. I really enjoyed that too.

    What's more mind blowing is the graphics are BMP in 2018...
    MapleStory graphics always appealed to me the amount of details for the characters is pretty impressive for a 2d game, As far as I'm concerned, MapleStory has the best graphics then any game of it's kind and I have played plenty of 2d games.

    Graphic designers of this game should be proud of their work, League of Legends, DOTA 2, WoW games just do not appeal to me... The graphics in them games aren't impressive to me.

    For all its problems, the art style really is the most unique aspect of the game, even this many years later.
