There seems to be a new free to play MMORPG released every week these days, but even with the immense growth of the genre, very few MMORPGs are Mac compatible. Considering Mac users only make up for ~5% of the market share for operating systems, it’s not surprising that most game developers opt not to develop Mac compatible versions of their MMORPGs. The only MMORPGs Mac users can usually play are browser MMORPGs, but after Googling around for a bit, I learned that some client based MMORPGs are also Mac compatible. Below is a list of all Mac compatible MMORPGs that run on OS X:

Savage 2
