Maplestory is a highly addictive game where, initially, 'no life' tweens can hide behind their computer screens and have the life and friends they never had in real life, but in pixels. You can level up by shooting rainbows at mushrooms and snails, marry other pedophiles, and have "friends". You can also build your reputation based on the amount of Nexon you have, how bitchy and annoying you are, and how many pixel boyfriends/girlfriends you can pick up at the same time. Also based on how many opposite (or same) gender pixels want to date your pixel.
Stupid aassssss shit in which 10 year old asian girls (and boys) can pose as 17 year old model/stripper/emo/scene/whatever else is out there via pictures available on google and post them on their fake myspaces to impress the 40 year old pedophiles who then insist on "marrying" their pixels.
Also the reason for the recent stock market crash because of all the 10 year olds spending $300+ of their parents money a week on "NX" to make their pixels "pimped" with gay clothes and shit. If you don't have at least 12+ hours to spend daily on Maplestory you will go through what is called mild to severe "MS Withdrawal".
