Some will say it's Everquest for kids...well, maybe that's exactly what it is. Free Realms is one of SOE's upcoming PlayStation 3 projects, and it should appeal to the younger generation of gamers out there who want to be a little more social (in the virtual sense). For the young'uns, this game should be a fantastic introduction to a deeper world of video games, and the parents needn't worry about unnecessary blood and gore. No, this one is just plain charming, and we can imagine a number of kids getting together to have some fun on rainy days. Of course, because it's technically an MMO, the limitations and restrictions are few; it's all about freedom and a huge number of options. Free Realms, at the very least, appears to be very creative.
