FAQ's

1. What is the purpose of your site?

The primary purpose of our site is to list the best PBBG’s. A PBBG is a "Persistent Browser Based Game", much like MMORPG's, except that they are browser based. PBBG's are also often referred to as a "Browser Based MMO" or a "Browser Based MMORPG". The number of available PBBG’s is very large. It would take you a very long time to go through the entire list and the idea behind our site is to save you time by listing only the best.

2. Do you have a complete list of all PBBG's?

Yes, I keep a Mammoth PBBG List that I use to keep track of which games have been submitted or that is considering for my list of best PBBG’s.

3. No offense but some of the games you list have bad graphics.

The visual appearance of a game represents only one aspect of a game. I like nice graphics too, but I consider depth of game play an ever greater factor. Deep games retain our attention much longer than shallow games with great art. Great graphics are good too, as long as it's married to good content.

4. How can I post a game to your site?

First, check our Mammoth PBBG List. If your game is not listed there then click here to post a request for a review.

5. Why cant I post my own article or review anymore?

Nearly every game posted in the past by visitors contained nothing of value in terms of information about the game. It seems that developers don't mind spending months or years on a game but for some reason typing up information about the game is asking too much. In fact I've even seen this on game sites that contain nothing more than a sign-up form and contain no information about the game at all. So from here on out, I will only accept requests to review a game, rather than let developers and fans to review the game on our site.

6. Did you play every game on your Mammoth list?

No. Some games result in a 404 error, some games have been discontinued, and some games have been abandoned. When arriving at a PBBG site for the first time. I look for clues that might indicate that the game is not worth further consideration. For example, some games were started but never finished, there might be a copyright notice from 1999 and the last news entry from 2000. When there are forums I check them for activity, a 4 year old game with 46 posts will not generally get further attention from us unless it appears that is simply has not been promoted well. Some games are hosted poorly, have annoying pop-ups, or both. Some games contain no information, having only a sign-up form and nothing else. I consider those games unplayable.

7. Is it possible that you may have misjudged a game?

Of course! If you think I have misjudged a game, then contact us and let us know.

8. Can I be a staff member?

It's possible. I have had staff in the past but none of them had the time to stick around. Currently this is a one-man show but if you are interested in helping to staff the site then contact me and we can work out a deal.

9. My game is on your Mammoth list but not on your ranked lists. Does this mean my game is bad?

No. The Mammoth list includes all known PBBG's, it is a list of the good and the bad. The ranked lists contain the cream of the crop only. There are literally hundreds of PBBG's out there and they can't all be ranked high. For more information read the article on our PBBG Listing Process.
