A popular online MMORPG based in Seoul, South Korea. The game has 50 million players worldwide, topping Ragnarok Online and Runescape combined. MapleStory is very unique it its on way. For example, the name of the game represents the fact that the maple tree supposedly disappeared from Korea, and the fact that one can show facial expressions through his/her/its character. The game can also be noted for its quality graphics (can be toggled).
The game has a (relatively) simple user interface that's easy to learn. That's what I found out the second I started playing.
When you crate your new character(s), he/she is automatically level 1. By training or doing quests, you can level up and get stronger. The max level is 200. Nobody in the game ever reached level 200.
Unlike some other MMORPGs, you don't choose your job or path in the beginning. There are five jobs: beginner, warrior, bowman, thief, and magician. You are automatically a beginner when you create your character, and can choose to become any of the other four later on. Some just stay a beginner, who are often called perman00bs.
There are three islands in the world of MapleStory--Maple Island (where you begin), Victoria Island (the island where you make the job advancement), and Ossyria Island (an island designed mainly for mid-high leveled people). On Ossyria, there is sub-continent called Ludibrium (Ludi), which is toy-themed. You can call it a continent of its own if you want.
There are three types of maps--town, field, and dungeon. Town maps often contain NPCs and shops. Field maps and dungeons usually contain monsters, the latter usually with a higher spawn rate and stronger monsters.
Training is basically killing monsters for experience (EXP). You need EXP to level up and get stronger. You can form parties (up to six in one)to help you train. Depending on how you look at it, training can be f-cking boring or very exciting.
This is not all of what MapleStory is and what you need to know about it. If you wanna know more, create an account and play.

A guy distributes a poll to ten online gamers. He wants to know which is the best of the three : MapleStory, Runescape, or Ragnarok Online.
Six say MapleStory.
Three say Ragnarok.
One says Runescape.
worse than drugs.
addictive game where everyone strives to get the best items, look cool, kill monsters, get stronger and neverthe less....waste time, and sometimes real money
maplestory makes my friends fail school.
Is a free online game MMORPG. It is made free because it sounds like shit when you hear about it but you have nothing to lose. After a few hours the game sucks you in and never lets go. From here on you are a maple 'hoar'. You buy Nexon cash to make your character look good. You train to be stronger. You engage in it as a second life. Once you start you will have two lives. A real life AND a virtual life.

A side-scroller MMORPG currently still in beta that consists of little custom chibi characters you can equip armor and weapons on. Is often criticized for having snails as the basic monsters when those who criticize haven't even gotten far enough into the game to kill higher level monsters. Is also criticized for being very similar to Ragnarok Online, for the job advancement concept, menu design, etc. Contains a swear filter much more sensitive than RO's, though.
Warning: Is terribly simple but terribly addictive.
Slang word for marijuana.
David: yo lets go play some maplestory yo
Caveman: i don't know yo, that shit is pretty intense
A MMORPG that millions of people play, but hate. It's just addictive... No one likes it, but you can't stop playing. It's like they put nicotine in it or something.
(Character around lvl 50): "Maplestory SUCKS!"
(Noob): "Then quit..."
(lvl 50 Character): "I CAN'T IT'S TOO ADDICTING!!!!!"
A game with the simplest, yet most addicting objective ever: Leveling up to level up some more.
l337H4x: Yeah I'm almost level 50 in Maplestory!
LegitNub: What're you going to do at level 50?
l337H4x: Get to level 51, duhh
