The top virtual worlds for adult players, as of 2015, are Second Life, World of Warcraft, Sony PlayStation Home, The Sims and IMVU, as listed by Virtual Reality. The remainder of the top 10 are Blue Mars, Utherverse, Kaneva, Active Worlds and Meet Me.
Second Life is listed as the top virtual world. This scenario lets users design their own avatar, build properties, converse with other users and play games. Users explore a world filled with racing tracks, universities, night clubs, sports venues and more, and the game is free to play. Although Second Life has experienced widespread popularity since its creation in 2003, its user base has gradually decreased with the growing trend of social media platforms.
World of Warcraft holds the second place in Virtual Reality's list. It allows users to explore the fantasy world of Azeroth. The massively multi-player online role-playing game allows players to choose from classes such as mage, warlock, rogue, dwarf, night elf and death knight as they explore dungeons and wage wars. Numerous expansion packs, such as Mists of Pandaria, are available to give users additional lands to explore. Blizzard Entertainment first introduced the Warcraft universe in 1994, developing it through several iterations of more standard gaming before launching the virtual World of Warcraft. The game receives largely positive reviews from gaming sites such as GameSpy.
