23 Games Like Mabinogi

Games Like Mabinogi Our trove of MMO games like Mabinogi covers other games that encourage you to live out your own fantasy life and play the game on your own terms.

Mabinogi is one of Nexon’s classic MMORPGs which has stood the test of time thanks to it’s open design that packs customisation and freedom into a typical MMO framework. Set in a mythical world with an anime feel known as Erinn a century old battle plagues the landscape and threatens to throw the game world into complete chaos.

Mabinogi’s depth comes from a combination of the Rebirth System ensuring players are never locked out of experiencing content and the dozens of talents available that encompass activities from archery to making music or tailoring clothes.

This approach allows players to enjoy complete freedom as they choose from a wide range of paths and even settle their own homestead. This also ties in perfectly with the social focus of the game where players are encouraged to be involved in the community with all the tools necessary to do so.

The games similar to Mabinogi featured here have a similar focus on community engagement and freedom. The options found here have an anime style feel and a wealth of opportunities outside of combat to explore.
