So what are the Top Korean Games? According to game metrics Korean website GameNote here is the list with the most popular games in Korea for the week that just passed.
The first game i will not comment, Itâ€™s first in all the world, it doesnâ€™t surprise me being first in Korea too. The brand new sandbox â€“ theme park MMORPG Archeage goes quite well and is No3 in the Top played games in Korea and stats first as the most played MMORPG in Korea.
We also see 3 top NCSoft titles in the top 10, with Lineage being on 4, Blade & Soul at 5 and ex-number 1 of the list Aion dropping to number 7.
The beast of the west, know also as World of Warcraft doesnâ€™t seem to be doing so well in the Korean Game Rankings as it remains steady at place number 15.
In the past week, Korean game metrics website GameNote has updated the game ranking list. From the list below, we can clearly see that ArcheAge maintained at 3rd place for the week of 21st January to 27th January, similar to its launch week.
Yet NCsoftâ€™s titles, were all pushed down due to ArcheAgeâ€™s rise, with Blade & Soul standing at a close 5th spot. Yes, everyone should be surprised how the heck Sudden Attack is at the 2nd spot. The game is just popular in Korea and had nice updates recently. TERA began to climb slowly after going Free-to-Play, with hope of knocking Diablo III off the top 10 places next week.
