Gaia Online is a social MMO that started out as a forum based experience. In Gaia Online players can connect with other players, chat on the forums, play games and create their own avatar.
Gaia Online launched in 2003 and has grown from a simple community to a forum based website mixed with a number of social games. With millions of users and several million unique visitors every month Gaia Online is a huge community experience.
In Gaia Online you will create your own Gaian and customise this avatar with countless options. Gaia Online lets you choose your skin, eyes, hair, gender, clothing and even lets you choose your own fantasy inspired race. To access additional clothing pieces players must purchase them through the NPC stores with Gaia Gold or Gaia Cash.
Most of your time on Gaia Online will be spent on the forums which have plenty of categories that cover most topics. Forum posts appear as speech bubbles from your avatar which gives the forum a little extra touch of personalisation compared with any old forum. Every post you make will give you some Gaia Gold to spend on further customising your Gaian avatar.
When you aren’t posting on the forums you can play games from the large collection of casual games available through the website which will also give you amounts of Gaia Gold.
Gaia Online is also well known for its site wide events and guild functions. These site wide events are usually based on real life events such as Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Christmas. While the Gaia Online guilds are setup by users and are generally focused on particular interests and topics.
Other popular features that you can access in Gaia Online to pass the time include your own Gaia house, car and aquarium. There is definitely lots of activities to be a part of in Gaia Online and all of them have amazing customisation options.
