Lineage and its sequel have been some of the most popular MMO games ever. Many years before games like WoW broke the 1 million player count and bragged that they were the most popular we had Lineage breaking the 2 and 3 million mark. Heck Lineage 2 a now almost 20 year old game and hasn't had a major update in years and most players have migrated to newer games in the series and to the mobile games but it still has about half the number of paid subs at FF14

Lineage is huge and great and it is a shame that so few English speakers know about it.

PS it is mainly a South Korean game
