PlayWhat has been around in one form or another since 2005. It started as a mirror site for PC game demos, but eventually PlayWhat morphed into what is today: a comprehensive library of MMO games/downloads.

We strive to be a hub where gamers can find what they want to play without having to slog through reviews, news and clutter. Just the facts, ma’am, and quick access to game clients, giving gamers the most direct path to gameplay, as quickly as possible.
