I have a friend who literally never shuts up about this game called EVE Online. Whenever we have facebook chats it takes him like a millenia to reply because he's 'watching EVE videos'. What makes it so good? I've seen gameplay footage, trailers, and more, yet the game just looks like a generic 3D space shooter. There are thousands like it, so what makes it so special? Does anyone have an account? If so, enlighten me. Prove to me that EVE is the most epic game on the internet.

He just says it's epic and that's it. Kinda stubborn.

EVE Online is an interesting case. Although I personally don't play it, I know from reading about it that it has some fascinating aspects. One of those being, I believe, that it's in-game currency (ISK) can be bought and sold for real world dollars. And that has led to some Ocean's Eleven type heist stories.

Wait, so people actually pay reallife money to buy certain stuff in the game off other people? That's just plain sad. But also kinda genius in a way.

EVE is in part a game, but it's also in part one of the world's most unregulated economies that uses what is effectively actual money. People pay ridiculous sums to game companies for 'certain stuff' in games all the time, at least here you can sell it back to someone else under supply and demand. I'm not sure if the gameplay is fun, but Cracked has a few other articles where they mention people making tons of real money, or losing it, on bad investments in EVE.

A few of the more unique and distinguishing factors of EVE online:

1. Probably the best and worst part of EVE(as compared to most other MMOs) is that there really is no "endgame". There's not really ever a point where you've done everything and/or reached the limit of your progression.

2. You "level up" by training skills in real time, even if you aren't actually playing the game(as long as your account is active).

3. If you die, you don't get your stuff back. Your ship and everything in it/equipped to it is gone for good if it gets blown up. You'll have to buy new stuff.

4. You can use in-game currency to purchase more subscription time. If played properly I know for a fact you can earn enough for a month's subscription in only a few hours of gameplay.

I only had a trial account, but I have some relatives who were very into the game and so have learned a lot about it. I definitely enjoyed it a lot and intend to get back into it eventually.
