    Merfolk in Video Games and MMORPGs

    Okay, I've seen threads about stuff, and it could just be my ADHD making it hard to concentrate on looking through the threads. However, I'm trying to find or compile a list of video games where BOTH mermen AND mermaids are in the game and the character you play as in the game takes on the form of or is a merman or mermaid. I'm like frantically looking for a game that involves merfolk. It just baffles me that a video game involving an underwater world and permanent full time merfolk don't exist. I don't have the knowledge or resources to recreate this in a video game, and I'm already trying to write a story around this theme. Can anyone either give me a link to a thread or maybe share a game here.

    As far as I know, the Little Mermaid games and 2nd Life were pretty much it

    I know about these, and I've heard of second life.

    Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 Atlantica
    Sims 3 Island Paradise

    I found this one today.

    There's a single player computer game called Aquaria that I really like. It's actually one of my favorite games of all time due to how gorgeous and exploratory it is.

    You play as Naija (link), who isn't your classic image of a mermaid as she is bipedal, but she lives underwater and has two huge finned feet. You explore the world with her to learn about her forgotten past. There are enemies and bosses to fight if that's your thing but you can also befriend sea creatures, search for treasure, cook, and gain special abilities that unlock new parts of the map.

    It was $30 but there are hours on hours of gameplay and it is well worth it in my opinion, especially if the idea of freely swimming through and exploring a vast underwater world excites you. ^^

    I think Sims 3 Island Paradise is like that, but it's full blown mer with a tail or not, and you can play as a merman or mermaid.

    I think video games are amazing. Players of all skill levels can enjoy video games. Some games are designed for more experienced players, while others are for beginners. What do you think about it?

    I think video games are a great opportunity to escape from boring everyday life or dilute your routine life. As for me, I play WOW WRATH OF THE LICH KING and at first it was difficult for me to play and I ordered services to boost my account on this site https://gamingcy.com/en-us/wow-wotlk-classic-carry . They pumped my account very quickly and I didn't pay that much. Now I feel very comfortable playing.
