The competition in the free MMORPG space has gotten remarkably intense in the past few years, as more and more top notch games get converted to free-to-play models, and new games hit the market reveling in their unabashed freeness. Because of all the fierce competition, free games are no longer guaranteed to develop large fanbases just because they’re free, like many of the first free MMORPGs did.

This is of course good news for all of us gamers, as it means free-to-play MMORPGs are higher quality than ever, and there are more sub-genres and styles of free MMO’s available than ever before. Check out our top 10 free MMORPG’s to play in 2014 list and come back later for more updates!

10. Dungeons and Dragons Online


DDO seemed to have everything going for it upon its initial release, but never seemed to find an audience. It had great graphics, a unique play style, and the pedigree of one of the best MMO developers behind it in Turbine. Despite its failure as a pay-to-play game, don’t be fooled into thinking that was due to the quality of the game. Though it suffers from some of the repetition that other instance-based games suffer from, it’s still an incredibly challenging and enjoyable experience.

9. The Lord of the Rings Online


LoTRO went free-to-play recently, and surely stands as one of the best free-to-play games on the market. A massive world, challenging combat, haunting music, and beautiful graphics await all those who wish to enter the enchanted realm of Middle-Earth. Player-owned houses and mounts, a unique monster-play PvP system, epic raids and gear, legendary crafted gear, and much more exists in Turbine’s masterpiece.

8. Allods Online


It’s easy to make the comparison to World of Warcraft when looking at Allods Online. The graphical style is eerily similar, though the art direction is actually quite original, and melds fantasy and sci-fi elements like few other MMO’s on the market. Allods features two distinct races in conflict with each other, and this conflict spills over into the game’s PvP mode. Humorous writing and scenarios are another hallmark of this charming little game. Don’t be put off by the WoW look, and give this one a shot.

7. Dragon Nest


Dragon Nest is an action RPG published by Nexon where some of the greatest visuals ever seen in a free MMORPG go hand in hand with charming anime characters and exciting real time combat. There’s a lot to be amazed at in this game, an all-round polished offering that any self-respected fan should try.

6. Vindictus


Vindictus was probably the most hyped free MMORPG ever when it released. The combination of stunning graphics and an action-based battle system that still retained the RPG elements we all know and love had gamers giddy with excitement. While the hype surrounding Vindictus has now died down somewhat, it still remains an enjoyable and unique game, with some thrilling combat. And those graphics… (drool).

5. RaiderZ


MMORPGs have begun moving away from the classic hotbar style of combat to a more open action combat system which focuses on aiming your skills rather then have your character automatically lock on. RaiderZ has one of the best action combat systems currently available, allowing players to join others in large dynamic confrontations against some of the largest and most varied open world bosses in an MMORPG. Players are also not bound to a specific class, but instead are free to choose among different weapon and skill types, allowing the player to choose what style of combat best suits them. All of this combined offers a refreshing experience for players looking for a more skill-based MMORPG.

4. Aion: Ascension


Aion was released in the west as a pay-to-play game and quickly fell out of the limelight due to the games incessant need to grind for level progression. However with the release of the 3.0 update and the switch to a free to play model, Aion has gone from a traditional Korean grinder to one of the most promising and enjoyable F2P MMOs around with true depth and diversity. Players now have access to all content in Aion with no restrictions allowing them to enjoy the full range of the game. The MMO features breathtaking visuals, air combat, large scale PvP, raids set atop sky fortresses, competitive dungeon runs and much more. One of the most notable features is the large scale keep assaults players can participate in where players must deal not only with the imposing raid bosses within the keep but must also fight off players from the opposing faction who are also fighting for control. With Ncsoft continually updating the game with huge content releases players can expect a long and enjoyable MMORPG experience with Aion

3. Rift


Rift is another prime example of a particularly above average P2P MMORPG converting into a stellar Free-to-Play one. While on the surface Rift may appear as your average tab-target “WoW Clone”, underneath is a dizzying array of depth and uniqueness. Rift’s main claim to fame is its diverse Soul system, which allows a player to combine multiple roles into one class. While Rift only offers 4 classes, each class has access to 10 diverse souls with three active at any time. Questing in Rift is average, but made more interesting with dynamic events such as Rifts. In any given area, multiple Rifts may spawn which spew out progressively harder mobs. If left unattended, these Rifts can eventually overrun nearby encampments preventing players from turning in quests or using its vendors. Players may also participate in random group adventures which span entire zones with their own separate quest lines and special rewards. Rift boasts an impressive amount of end-game PvE and PvP content, spanning from small 2 player instances to 20 man competitive raids. Overall, Trion has done a good job with the conversion and has shown they are committed to updating the MMORPG continuously with more innovative free content.

2. Neverwinter


Steeped in the rich lore of Dungeons and Dragons, Neverwinter is the newest addition to the open action combat MMORPG family. Based on The Forgotten Realms world of D&D 4.0, Neverwinter offers players a world full of quests, epic dungeons, and beautiful landscapes. What really elevates Neverwinter above most MMORPGs is an amazingly intricate dungeon bulding system, called The Foundry, that allows players to design, share, and participate in their own custom adventures, just like the pen and paper version of D&D. If you’re looking for hours of customizable action filled combat with, or against, your fellow adventurers, make sure you try this one out!

Play Now: Neverwinter

1. Tera Online


After converting from Pay to Play over to Free to Play in early 2013, TERA Rising has shown itself to be one of the premiere MMORPGs available. Showcasing expansive and impressively detailed visuals and a huge variety of wonderfully designed creatures, the open action combat of TERA allows players to have full control over their character while in combat, no more tab targeting here. Although the game does suffer a little from the typical grind of MMORPG questing, there is the option to participate in 5 player dungeons, an upcoming 20 man raid, Guild PvP, and open world PvP to mix it up. TERA also introduces a very unique and intricate political system, that allows a whole zone to vote on a player to become the zone’s matriarch, who can then influence various properties of the zone itself (power trip anyone?). So If you’re tired of dated graphics, repetitive monsters, or even tab targeting, TERA Rising may be the medicine to fix what ails you.

Play Now: Tera Online

Remember that we are featuring only the most recent free to play MMORPGs so we are not including big free mmorpg classics. We wanted to include all the relevant MMORPG games but we can only choose ten.

With these and other great free games on the market, 2013 promises to be an amazing year for MMORPG players. So grab your weapon of choice and maybe an energy drink or two and get prepared for thrills to last a lifetime.

        Hahaha, a game that requires more than 60$ to play, as an MMO, should never deserve a spot in a top 10 unless it’s a completely huge godlike game, with in depth RPing with tons of options for everything! And about 50 different emote choices per object, hopefully.

    Aion NA is the best game
    1.) Great graphics.
    - PVP is not just all about the skills and gears of your character but instead its more on how good a player you are in controlling your character. ( perfect balance in all 8 class)
    2.) 8 types of crafts.
    3.) Guild system is awesome, (you create your own cape, invite people from different countries, get territories in the abyss, and get ranking)
    4.) cooperation in this game is superb each class has its own strengths that can make them important in the group when doing instances (like healers, buff, debuffs, sleepers, silencers, rooters, tankers, dps, cc, dots etc)
    5.) great interface for chatting.
    6.) Has voice acting, great pet system. so many instances, quests, good story for the two factions.(lots of great cut scenes)
    7.) can choose over a thousand kinds of faces, diff body size and expression, and great design in armors for cloth, leather, chain and plate
    8.) pvp while flying is the best. rifting is very thrilling (fighting behind enemy lines)
    9.) Lots of players :D 24/7.
    10) In this game you don’t just grind. YOU THINK.

    I’m sure that other players can add more information about how good aion is.
    btw pls update this article.

    • hukbalahap on July 13, 2012

      btw
      -huge map
      -Each faction has their own world which are completely different and you can do rifting by going to enemy world to hunt for other players in the opposing faction.
      -there’s a third faction in the abyss that’s also fights for territory in the abyss (more challenge)
      -its has mentoring system (which makes COOPERATION in this game more important)
      -gliding is just cool :D

      truly one of the best mmorpg that is out today :D

      • Ren on July 14, 2012

        Actually, no.

        Aion is EXTREMELY gear and level based based if you look at the mechanics of the game.

        Classes most certainly are not perfectly balanced, especially early on where mages knock off 80% of your hp in one skill.

        There is no cooperation in this game, everyone just zergs and the asmodians lose because they have no one to zerg the enemy faction with. People in your parties don’t listen, don’t know how to play, and 90% of the population is BR.

        The voice acting is lame, and one of the female voices is really infuriatingly bad and everyone uses it anyway..

        The chat interface is one of the crappier ones I have seen, though not the worst.

        If you are Elyos, you have to wait 1 hour (or even miss entirely) for your dredgion queue. There are NO asmodians at all. Even as an elyos it is hard to get parties for instances or tough mobs.
        Aion is dead/dying, and it’s only gonna get deader with GW2.

        Abyss is a gimmick, nobody goes there, only the inggi/tiama fort sieges are worth attending..

        Rifting is garbage now, you get a debuff that makes it impossible for a 5 man party to kill one opposing faction member..

        Huge map is a con, takes forever to get around (esp inggi)

        Mentor system sucks for both the mentee and mentor when both have a hard time getting a group even as overpopulated elyos

        Flying is a gimmick

        Moving combat is unrealistic and gay

        Aionscript ruins the game, everyone uses it. (speed hack, glide hack, bot, etc..)

        The collecting is garbage, too long delay, too many aggro mobs canceling you out which ruins the node. The crafting is expensive and not really profitable – recipes don’t drop and nobody sells them – I still don’t have my green/blue noob nanyu recipes -.- and master carved recipes are bullshit, you can’t get the mats even when you own enemy forts, because the npc sells like 4 of them a day and they sell out as soon as they are in stock. To make it worse, crafted gear caps out at 58..

        • hukbalahap on July 15, 2012

          bro. im playing in the kharun server.
          -I never have problem recruiting people in LFG when I need help in diff instances. there are so many higher level players that are willing to mentor. (many mentors are willing to spend many hours just to help low lvl players without getting any benefit.)
          - There are so many asmo in these server. western shard is always a battle field in the abyss.
          -there are no buffs or debuffs if you do rifting in kharun. rifting is still thrilling.
          - chat interface is great. you can add more and you can customize it based on your own preferences.
          - to make the game more exciting try making a legion. It gives you more things to do.
          -players base is very high for both faction in the kharun server.
          -(PVP) if your a better player you can beat a player that has better gear and 10 lvl higher than you. its not only about pointing at the enemy then just clicking on the numbers to trigger the skills. allot of player skill is required especially
          if your an assassin or a ranger.
          -your right mages can really be very op against warriors but they are no match against priests. while warrior can kill priests. for rouge there perfect for hunting players from the opposing faction.
          -to me huge map is a pros considering that the game is highly populated it makes the war more exciting.
          -in terms of cooperation. i learn playing the game by joining parties. TEAMWORK is important to complete those six man instances.. the players are very helpful.

          and again the graphics, story, pet system, armors, flying and gliding are just awesome in this game.

            Aion is the Best Game out there, it is addictive and fun.

            No technical point view from me, but someone who enjoys a great fun ongoing game, it takes long to get something you want like the lvl 50e Miragent gear and weapon, but worth it, the Crucible Gear Much longer but even more worth it!

            There is always improvement opportunities but so far GREAT game!
            Abyss is always busy, Getting members in LFG easy! Mentors + Mentees 24/7

            I will agree Gameforge needs to get 3.0 up and running.

            Huge map PRO not con, Iggs huge place yea but then you are not using the fly paths…

  6. Samzagas on April 3, 2011

    I like the list, played most of them, but I feel that most people are biased when it comes to Runes of Magic. The game is simply too much like WOW, but that doesn’t makes it good, just an alternative. I feel that it’s just a side effect from Blizzard’s overly hyped, cookie cutter MMO.

    (0)
  7. Madwall on April 3, 2011

    Though all these games are of high quality i feel many of them fall victim to the
    quest design of kill # of y, or collect # of y especially in the early levels.
    Personally i believe Vindictus and DDO alleviate this by their instanced more dungeon crawling style quests, They however suffer from other problems such as repetition.

  10. q the physicist on April 4, 2011

    i never played WoW, but played Runes of Magic for more than a year and dabbled in lord of the rings online for a couple of months before discovering DDO. In my opinion it should be above both LOTRO and RoM for the following reasons:

    1. Character movement and design
    DDO: character hangs on ledges, climbs up stuff like ladders and large steps, super jumps, feather falling (a kind of gliding) and creation is somewhat varied meaning your character can kinda look like you want it to.
    RoM: none of the above plus your character can only look like a Final Fantasy character
    LOTRO:none of the above, design was ok if i remember

    2. Combat
    DDO: mouse left button hold for attacks, mouse and left hand for maneuvering (mouselook); no macros but hotbars more than enough. no damage meters. combat is very diverse and there is a lot of maneuvering
    LOTRO: no mouselook, wtf??!!
    RoM: single-button mashing (fighter class) because of macros (can you say “carpal tunnel syndrome”); button mashing in general

    3. UI
    DDO: very easy to change ui settings, everything moves, no need for add-ons to customize desktop. Limited number of skins, unfortunately
    LOTRO: very customizable
    RoM: very customizable with add-ons. lots of add-ons exist.

    4. questing
    DDO: instanced and quests much longer and more involved. good use of puzzles and a lot of different types of quest settings and tasks. quests scale to size of party. grinding pretty much a thing of the past. no mounts. hirelings!
    LOTRO: don’t remember the quest structure here. horse mounts at first but you can get them very early. hirelings apparently, though i dont remember them.
    RoM: This game was grind city! quests were short and boring and most often involved killing mob after mob. not a lot of creativity in quest design. excellent mounts, however. no hirelings.

    all in all, DDO is better than the other two in my opinion if you would like a more varied, less boring game experience.

        LOTRO you can play music AND play your own music, or make a music folder in the lord of the rings folder, and save either .txt files from NOTEPAD ONLY or Extract .abc files from zip files, then bam type /music (With instrument equipped) and then /play filename of song

        if you want synchronized playing then /play song name here sync then type /playstart

        Minstrels are the ONLY class that can play ALL INSTRUMENTS BY DEFAULT but 3 instruments you need to get the passive skill to, those 3 instruments are the Theorbo, level 15, Pibgorn level 20 (Sounds horrible unless your playing celine dion my heart will go on) and Bagpipes at level 25, but minstrels can also MENTOR other classes in specific instruments except there is a 5 day cooldown O_O oh well. (I speak of experience since i have a level 31 or 32 minstrel on the landroval server)

      I agree also. Played WoW for a while as a paladin then signed on to DDO and played paladin as first character to compare. For one I found the combat system in DDO much better than WoW. You have to move and think much more in DDO than WoW where you basicly can get away with standing there and just swinging away while you hit num keys to cast spells.
      Character creation, no comparasion. In WoW you basicly pick a race and profession and that’s it. In DDO the wonk factor is high with tons of choices as to skills more. And if you don’t like crunching the numbers the option is there to let the computer do it all for you and you’ll still end up with a playable character.
      WoW beats DDO in that being more popular it has a lot more interaction with others but the DDO universe has gotten bigger since it’s gone free even if you do have to put up with some of the old timers who resent the new guys who signed up for free. WoW is also less prone to the “grinding” problem.
      WoW is a great game, don’t get me wrong. But DDO is at least as good and I think a better game. Plus it’s free….

    I have play for a long time Diablo I,II then L2 for years and after that Aion, Forsaken World have elements from this 3 games I play in the past, and it’s awesome if u like the above games then u must play it imo it’s the best free mmorpg there is so many things to do gather/craft/instants/farm elite mobs or raid world bosses with party and ofc PvP! 5 races / 8 classes / every cls have 3 tree of talents u can choose to spent your talent points the graphics for a f2p mmorpg is top notch seriously the details of char faces match that of Aion all in all this game is very promising there is only 1 month from the release but it’s so well made high badget game it doesn’t look like f2p at all give it a try and I am sure u will love it like I did.

    Like the wow style of game: RoM
    Like active gameplay and big character customization: DDO
    Like to explore endlessly and a huge backstory: Lotro

    Hi guys, i look Vindictus and it looks awesome, i was looking this type of game that you can play whiout a mouse, and you can use only the gamepad!!!!, do you know another game like this? hack and slash online? that you can play directly with a gamepad or with xpadder or pinnacle game profiler?

    Thanks, and have a good day

    i played wow on and off for over some 8 years now maybe actually played about 4 of those. but any ways im trying every single free to play mmo i can find and frankly most of them are pure fecal matter.

    as the list go’s i’ve tryed aika, forsaken world, Atlantica, allods, lotro, ddo, champions, runes.

    frankly i get bored as hell with all of them i played and forced my self to play till about level 30-40 in them just to try and get into the content. its ither they seem alot like wow or im just bored of the magic and swords mytho’s style genre. i have yet to find a game i can enjoy and stick with. its alot of the same in my opinion, fetch quests or the overly repetive kill x amount of this to get x amount of that. little to no interesting story.

    personally im a big fan of pvp and dungeon content. most of the games have little of both. i’ve tryed some Science fiction type mmo’s and frankly no ones doing it any good.

      to me it sounds like your a wannabe hardcore gamer. I mean someone who envisions in their head, “im gunna be badass in this game” but you dont have any where near the patients to get there. Once the Xp rate starts to dip you immediately get bored and tired of the game thinking its a bad game, when in reality you’re a bad player. stick to games made for casual players. maybe make 100 shaiya characters on the easy difficulty and see where that gets you.

    Lool, Always Runes of Magick on number one. I’ve played WoW for 2 years and it got bored. Now I see this copy of WoW and it doesn’t look good in those videos. I didn’t even like WoW being one of the best MMORPG’s because I think it isn’t. It’s a nice game but not worth paying in my opinion.
    I don’t think Runes of Magick belongs to the first place. There’s also a new game: Rift. If it was f2p you should have added it as number one in your list in stead of that other nab game. They are all looking the same. But thanks for your list…

    All good games , Except i think Vindictus should be number 1 and RoM crashes my system when i play it i used to have 1 gb of ram and it would randomly crash while playing not often enough to keep me from playing it though. I bought another gig thinking yeah ill be able to play it now and even with better graohics to boot……not now it crashes at log in everytime without fail even though that same ram has enabled me to play other games i couldnt play before smoothly.

  26. mateus on April 26, 2011

    Except for Vindictus who is the most hype free but have nothing new (is another bored game who have good graphics), the list is good. My opinion:
    10. Aika
    9. Vindictus.
    8. Perfect world
    7. Forsaken
    6. Atlantica
    5. Allods
    4. DDO
    3. Champions
    2. Rune
    1. LOTRO

    How can a game like let’s say ‘Flyff’ miss this list if they have like 6 million registered users.
    Played that game in the past, as there are many other games that should be in this list.

        gameplay / graphic quality / community / and other things.

        In which aspect every game stands out the most.. that way the list would be more specific and complete. My list would take like atleast a few hours to make if I wanted to have a good opinion on things and with good backfeed that is.

    I reccomend that you wait until it gets to Europe because its hard to find a good proxy server to the US.
    And the Silkroad thing could be:
    1. The server is down.
    2. Are you sure you run it as Administrator.
    3. Virus?

    • qurrary on May 17, 2011

      hy dude. well i am going to tell you that atm i am somewhere in the middle of costa rica and i play silkroad and cabal aswell(europe not to mention).so why do you need something for cabal online?if you are not playing europe version i recomend you doing it.if you still got problems then its from your internet provider and then i recomend speaking with them and if their like total jerks you can always use a http-tunnel a proxycap and just to be there for checking a proxy checker wich you can easily find them by checking on google for the names i just gave ^^.talking about silkroad i higly recomend to download the game with their downloader.install it and if you have problems re-install.and if you still have problems then reinstall and stop trying to use bots cus’ they block you for that:p.and if u still have problems from your bots you can take agbot and it has a patcher in there that cleans your silkroad directory of any bot *thingy*.and if you still get errors connecting is mostly because i lag the servers^^joking its not me but this is a big reason even tough the servers are not full but you can always check the status of the servers on rev6.just google it.even when you click connect and nothing happens but in the end you get a error or you can click again connect its because of the servers the loading thing wich comes with something like *depends on the time line* it kind of stop popping out lately ^_^.oh btw for sro you dont need proxy only if you play other versions(japan,NA.etc.)so if you if you still have any problems or you need help with the proxy thing you can always mail me at [email protected](i wonder where i got the name from/and i know its not correct). best of luck

      Still looking for the perfect game.until then WoW is my option :p

    • akonkingz2 on May 5, 2011

      Then i reccomend that you try download it from a new web browser (Google Chrome or Firefox), or you could download Silkroad through utorrent or bitcomet, i reccomend most to download it trough bitcomet or utorrent because if it stops working you can just open it again and resume the download :D Hope that helped ^^

  43. meebles on June 18, 2011

    for me Runes of Magic was kinda meh, as a grind-heavy game the combat system just didn’t feel as addictive as other ones like Flyff. As for the the dual/multi class system, sorry RoM, but DDO did it a lot better- because skills are varied/practical for different situations in missions (e.g. unlocking doors, disabling traps).

    I agree with others that Runes of Magic does not belong at the top of this list. The only reason it is there is because it is a WoW “replacement”. As far as game quality goes, LOTRO is probably a better game. Also, Mabinogi is missing from this list. It is a better and more unique game than Aika online.

    (0)
    • Xebulba on June 24, 2011

      Actually if you are referring to Mabinogi Heroes it is on the list. Vindictus is the name for the North American release of Mabinogi Heroes, damn near the same game just under a different name.

      • Alkhazix on March 31, 2014

        Vindictus and mabinogi are totally different, From combat to graphics nearly everything has changed, I can’t just agree that they’re the same name, i won’t start bringing out the differences since I’ll have a problem expressing myself, but come on! Nearly everyone who has played both of these games can say that they’re both different and unique.

If you really want to stay on Runes of Magic and keep playing with high instance you will have to pay, beceause you need an amount of HP before you can do the instance, or you will die.. Well Forsaken World gives you a change to do it 100% F2P I recommend Forsaken World, beceause with 30g in-game money you can have an mount for 135% speed.

      I don’t know what you are talking about, considering that MOST f2p’s are designed this way – with an in-game item shop. Even Forsaken World has one. While in Runes of Magic you do need many of those item shop items to achieve the high level instance enjoyment…this doesn’t not mean you have to PAY dollars for them. The in-game item shop has a gifting feature – most end game players trade gold to obtain these items from diamond sellers. You don’t have to spend the money if you don’t want to.

  85. awesomeguy990 on October 8, 2011

    I disagree with this list here are some legit reasons:
    1. Most of these games are those crap ones where u have to target your enemy and auto attack sht!
    2. Vindictus, Mabinogi and dragon nest are all scratch based (hack n slash)
    3. DDO is WAAAAY better than LOTRO! LOTRO is auto attack and target, while DDO is scratch based!
    4. You people left out MapleStory!

I dont know what kind of mindless zombie enjoys pressing the same numbers in the same pattern in the same generic fantasy world for hours and hours. I suggest you guys at MMObomb make a top 10 list of skill based MMOs and not just MMOrpgs. I’d love you guys if you did. There are MMOs out there that require skill thank god. Making a list about it would really do gamers a favor.

And sure alot of other people might want to argue, but its my opinion listen to it or dont, oh ya and when i tried oout LOTR online it SUCKED, i just hated, being a lotr fan it was a horrible game and a disgrace to have the name.

      Wrong, both are pay to win, i read in some place that Allods is even more expensive than WoW, because of the cash shop that makes you use u money.And Allods is not original, its a WoW copy like RoM.Just tell me something that have in allods that is original, because i played and dint see a single difference.

  116. Willie Lee on December 5, 2011

    You guys obviously don’t read. Near the end of the Article they give reason why they’ve excluded some Free-to-Plays. Also don’t you dare compare Perfect World’s MMORPG Perfect World to WoW. Why? WoW isn’t really a FTP and has only 12 million subscriber base, but PWI’s PW is a full blown FTP and has a 50 million player subscriber base. Clearly Perfect World < WoW. I'm kinda disappointed that PWI's Forsaken World isn't mentioned, but I guess it isn't recent.

    (0)
    • Ezekiel on December 10, 2011

      WoW has 12 million subscribers which is 4 times more than the other top P2P mmos. Perfect World has 50 million players, not subscribers. Wow makes at least $15 a month per player while PWI has to rely on the cash shop.

  120. Kalios on December 13, 2011

    I think the author of this list was paid to do so. Let’s see, RoM may be a good game, but the cash shop punishes non-paying players. You see, a lot of people like me, enjoy playing a game without having to pay a single dollar in it. RoM is not the case, if you want to have fun for a few days go ahead, play it, but if you wanna make it to the top, forget about playing free, cause you’ll need to invest a shitload of money to make your equipment better so you can actually be useful on a guild.
    Seriously, you should do a list of real FREE TO PLAY mmo, games that let you play free and being a high-end player without having to spend any money, not some of these “pay to be a pro”. In some games the cash shop is merely an addition, you can get good equip without paying real money.

  125. Quickswitch on December 22, 2011

    1)RoM-Item mall unbalances the game way to much. Good until around level 25ish, Then the boredom sets in. My’s well pay for the sub in WoW.

    2)LoTR- only free to a certain extent. You can buy things like weapons and such with real cash.

    3)DDo- I played for a little bit. At the time it seemed alright, until I found another MMORPG to play.

    4)Vindictus-I enjoyed it for a good while. I was a Kurak. But the instances starts to get repetitive after level 35. You have to run, and re-run the same instances over, and over.

    5)Allods- I played for a good while too, but the taint of free gaming sets in pretty fast. Collect X return to Y type quests.

    6)Dragon Nest-Never tried it.

    7)Perfect World-gets grindy after level 18ish. Another game that becomes unbalanced do to the Item Mall. Buying XP stones and such with real life cash, just to make the game less grindy.

    What kept me playing it for a few months where the graphics. I’m a sucker to games that have realistic 3D graphics. Not a fan of the cartoony/anime style graphics.

    8)AoC-Only free to a certain extent. You are limited unless you pay for a premnium account.

    9)Forsaken World-Your typical Perfect World style game, Grindy, Item mall unbalances, and it is basicly the same game as number 7 on this list. It should not even be on this list in the first place.

    10)Loong-Is to cartoony/anime style type game, for me. The character customazation is very, very limited. I watched a video preview of this game, and the ambient background music seemed it would get annoying fast.

    Best thing I can say about this list is. Either go for a sub game, or a retail game, you might be better off. Some retail games, and sub games are pretty nice. I had not yet found any free game that kept me playing for a good year or two.

    Speaking of Retail game, I am off to go purchase Skyrim.

    Dragon Nest is pretty good (Besides the customer support nexon isn’t very good at that)

    Allods is alright…

    Runes of magic is pretty gay… (I don’t understand why you can have up to 3 classes combined into a single class…)

    To me LOTRO sorta got boring after level12

    Never really played DDO soo…

    Vindictus (From what I’ve played) Is possibly the best Free to play game out there Insane graphics Only con is that the whole game is pretty much one big instance lol… ( And from what I know the only PvP Is 1 on 1 duels. D:)

    10. Loong: The Power of the Dragon———–Should be good, but I dont like that type.
    9/5/2.———————Could someone tell me what is the difference between these 3 and WOW? Im tired of that kind of ugly gamescreen. WOW kind games are behind the times. Why should one of a magican’s hand always raises up to hold magic, or arcane, while another hand dropping close to magican’s waist? Why should missions always display as an old, yellow scroll?
    8. Age of Conan: Unchained———looks good, but character’s footstep needs to upgrade. Battle is filled with blood. Fix the lag.
    7. Perfect World—————— A old game but the gamescreen always makes players feeling fresh. People could jump and fly in the sky. That makes player really fun.
    6/4/3.—————- I always believe that a MMORPG game can not only be played as a instance game. These 3 games are instance games, which only contain instance mission without freedom mission. That is really boring.
    1. Runes of Magic——————- A good update from WOW’s ugly gamescreen. But else, no else.

    DCUO would be another good title in this list…the PvP server is just awesome :D action game with rpg details and a quite big and datailed world at disposal…the PvE server to me is quite pointless…this game is focused on the PvP even at endgame and the main part is the fight of heroes vs villains…not like in comics you see “O… hai! Mr/s Super Hero/Villain! May i challange you to a duel for (type some idealist bullshit here) ? :D ” you just go there and pwn the hell out of him…weapon and skill system are awesome for a rpg, not binding at all (even if, to be honest, some choices for particular roles like dps and healer are better PvE wise..for bosses you know…PvP wise everything is pretty much fine as long as you’re skilled with it)…skills can be resetted for few money (game currency, not cash….and trust me …it’s a really lil sum of money) so you can try a lot of combinations to make your own build…travelling powers are awesome too :D and the fact that even after you reached the cap you can keep growing lil by lil is hella nice :P
    Some more endgame content…maybe some new map /challenges and pvp modes and it would be really nice :D

    Great list, pretty acurate. I might switch ddo up to 1 and knock lotro, and Rom down one each. Turbine makes great games and that is that. Granted it is a complete joke to say that ddo or lotro are ftp. you can say they’re ftp but if you actually want to enjoy the game over a period of over a month your probably going to have to dump money into it :P

    WHY GOD!?WHY ALWAYS PUT RoM ON FIRST??TELL ME ONE THING THAT MAKES RoM GOOD!!!!

    Crazy moment over:

    Lets look at the facts…
    Totaly F2P…or not:
    RoM is totaly f2p, because you cant do some instances because you need like 60% more hp and look!You need to pay you money or grind for the rest of your life to get it!Awesome!

    Questing Master:
    RoM quests are well made, you always get a new monster to kill 10 times!!

    Graphics for Good:
    Awesome graphics, you start with a black box that they call armor, then you get a orange armor and look!Your box/character is awesome!And look at that gray box over there!No is not a rat is a freakin Gray Dragon!Cool…

    Variation:
    Why have 6, 4 or even 26 races?You only need humans and elfs!Never seen before races!Diferent from each other in every body aspect!

    Well balanced pvp:

  144. silentdecay on February 1, 2012

    Runes of magic is so bad they killed all pvp, pvp servers have like 10 people on them at a time.

    The pve is boring, the sidge war pvp is broken and they don’t plan to fix and are planing to get rid of it leaving the game pure pve and boring

    You must cash shop over 5,000$ to get anywhere in end game

    (0)
  145. silentdecay on February 1, 2012

    Also all perfectworld games, are diff not free in order to even be viable lvl 60+ in forsaken world ect req almost 20,000 to get on par with all the cash shopers. You are useless with no wings or lvl 1 wings, game is a 100% cash shop game to do anything or have any fun at all in pvp or pve.

    Very very sad games for free

    • TheGamer on February 2, 2012

      Ye, i agreed with you, iam trying dc universe now, pretty cool, the cash shop is balanced, it only sell styles, character slots and DLCs, and the premium/legendary is “balanced’ i must say, compared to others, only the DLC-thing is lame.

    Runes of Magic as no1? LoL
    I know the game for +1year…dont play it…its a fail… “new contents” are repetitive, I farmed its latest contents in chapter III, IV…its only possible to get them if u pay real $! and all diamond prices are overpriced compared to other games!

    Support is terrible and flawed…ex.: during 1year i noticed wrong people geting suspended or banned…if you read forums of the game, all threads who mention “less positive subjects” get closed…just check it yourself if you dont believe me xD

    I wont tell which are my prefered mmo’s…but just forget Runes of Magic…

  162. Greeper on March 3, 2012

    Same AoC and other “f2p” games.
    Pretty bad list.
    And how can be RoM at first place omg? There are plenty of games better than this sh*t.

    Yeah, the list definitely needs to be updated asap.
    Since there are a lot of new good mmogames out there. One of them – Aion become free to play.
    Imo it’s one of the best MMORPG games nowadays, graphics and gameplay is amazing. Definitely worth give it a try. Don’t hesitate – http://www.aionfreetoplay.com

    Back to current top list, i’m not surpised about LOTRO current position (2nd) on the top list, becouse it’s a really amazing game, few days ago made a new acc and realised that it has to be on MMORPG top 3 for sure. Don’t ask me why, go there and look for yourself ;)

    I’ve always looked back to see how this list was evolving, and i always found myself nodding. Now it has come so far, i would only like to add a few suggestions. While i dont have many problems with ROM, placing it first in the midst of so many newer mmos seems dated. The game is extremely over hyped, and i can name several games that should be above ROM (descending order): Allods, Perfect World, Dragons Nest, Forsaken World, Aika, Aion ( its f2p now), etc. It is also necessary to define “free to play”; lotro and ddo should not fall under that category. it is misleading; those games are free to start, but 75% of the content is blocked unless you pay. also, i dont see aika and aion on this list. and… WHERE IS MABINOGI?!!! the game is slightly dated, but still provides more of an immersive experience than many of the games listed above. please update soon. thank you very much.

    Aion will be F2P for North America on April 11,2012. I am counting the days, because I loved it when it first came out. They have done alot to fix it up. Always loved the graphics and gameplay. And who doesn’t love flying? Besides, I have played all the games mentioned above, and atm I’m just waiting for GW2 to come out. So Aion will be my game for the time being.

      • Seth on April 18, 2012

        Aion has an incredibly weak PvE end-game. The instances are so easy a monkey with a keyboard could manage to do them (joke of course, but you get the point.) If you enjoy PvP, in which gear is really 75% of the fight, then pvp in aion will be fun for you. If you play MMO’s for the PvE experience, expect to get to level 60 and then become disappointed. I have played aion since beta, and have always been looking forward to 3.0 content since the trailer came out a LONG time ago. The new instances are just boring, and they just focus on making the end-boss take 15 minutes to kill because of health, and ignore the fact that Besh Temple is more difficult than the new instances in 3.0 patch. Raksang and Rentus Base are an absolute disappointment. The game is beautiful, and it has it’s strengths (there is a final fantasy hover-bike mount!) and its’ weaknesses (instances at the end-game level are completely dull and not-difficult, even in pug teams. F2P now though, so it’s worth a try if you enjoy PvP over PvE.

    Runes of Magic is an amazing game but personally, I don’t think that it deserves the top spot on the list while a game like Forsaken World is at the bottom. Runes of Magic has a very poorly developed auto routing feature. That doesn’t break the game but it drops the score in my opinion. Forsaken World however does not have any noticable flaws aside from the strange movement controls. And as a bonus, in Forsaken World, it is extremely simple to get a party together to do instance related quests. Maybe it’s just me, but I would have to rank Forsaken World higher on the list than Runes of Magic.

    I know this isn’t a F2P game but i’ve seen quite a few other P2P games in these comments. It was the first mmo I ever played and, I have tried so many since then and have yet to find one I think is better. It has changed a lot these past few years but if you love to PvP it really is #1 imo.

  192. Interesting on May 4, 2012

    On a different note. I’m trying to find a good free mmo to play. I’ve read up on basically every one mentioned on the list and in the comments and i’ve narrowed it down to ethier Aion or Vindictus. Now, I guess I could try both of them but my pc isn’t exactly the best. So I was hoping someone could tell me which one would be a better choice for long term play. I’d hate to invest abunch of time into something and be bored end game :).

    • Mark on June 20, 2012

      bit late to help probably but…… i been a aion player for almost 2 years even before it went free, it got me addicted. graphicaly nice, and it has a lower spec client, in case you dont have a big machine, but it will still look nice. i sugest max settings and high-end graphs if you can choose them on client tho, will look even better.
      vindictus i tryed and i was having fun with it, but it has something i hate on a mmo (if it can be considered mmo even). i play mmo’s to socialize with other people, do stuff toghether with, and i anchieve that much faster if its an open world game. vindictus isnt open world, all questing is done in mini-dungeons (felt more like corridors and small rooms really), true that you can group up and do them with otehr people, but for me it just doesnt give the feeling of an ”crowded” game as aion, forsaken world, star trek online, and any other open world game gives.

    You kids…. Maplestory is NOT good. Neither is Runescape or any of those other horrible games. What the f*** have you midgets been smoking that could make you possibly think games with such shitty graphics and so much repetition could be good. And to those who said “Nobody pays for game subscriptions anymore”, you are fools. WoW is still holding millions of users on subscriptions, Rift has a pretty large user base, and SWTOR is also growing. Those are just the main ones… So many of you have your facts wrong that I have no idea why you even post. You clearly have no f**** clue as to what you are talking about, so instead of making untrue statements and blabbing on mindlessly, go do some research.

    • Mark on June 20, 2012

      bad graphics doesnt allways means bad game mate. for example, not talking about mmo games now, i prefer to spend DAYS playing transport tycoon than any other transportation simulator more recent out there, simply because TT has much more to do than any other graphicaly improoved game of the same genre.
      as for subscription games, i wouldnt be more of agree with you. Aion for example, despite it had a lost of player base before it went f2p, it was still quite populated, at least on the server i was playing. WoW will keep a great player base allways because it has much more than just popularity, its a great game no doubt, even with a litle ”outdated” graphics for the current desires.
      rift is also a great game, played it for 1 year, brought some inovation to mmo games that no other game has, free or payed. as for SWTOR, its growing indeed,slowly, but we have to admit that SWTOR is more of a fan-based game, wouldnt be your 1st choice if you have no clue about star wars universe, if you know what i mean.
      game preference is all relative to each personal taste, but saying a game its bad just because you dont like some things, its not the truth, its just your opinion (you = players, not you specificaly Fury)

    “Mahin
    1) Aion
    2) Forsaken World
    3) Runes of Magic
    4) Vindictus
    5) Perfect World
    6) Dragon’s Nest
    7) DC Universe Online
    8) Aika Online

    10) Mabinog”
    Nice List, FWorld is playable even aside the cs you can beat csers if your smart enough,Aion rocks, Lotr, DDO and RoM are not balanced with cash shop avoid my advice to skip frustration when you reach high lvl and cant do anything without money.
    >>> all people dont like same style in games, you got sf junkies, big world explorers,farmers, pvpers etc etc, there for one can not truly make one universal list ,its matter of preference what game suits you best<<< The best mmo is the one you got real pals playing together with you ;)

    • Mark on June 20, 2012

      you get enough money to buy your skill books on EU aion. and restrictions are to prevent botters and gold spammers (wich i confess gameforge wasnt doing a good job with).
      and consider that gold packs (restriction removers for 1 month for those that dont know) can be bought ingame with the game currency instead of real money, and same goes for XP boost and CD reduction scrolls, and as far i have seen (at elast in the old spatalos server, where i played for almost 2 years before it went free) the prices arent too high for a mid-lvl char.
      at least EU aion didnt got rumors of having buy-to-win items on the shop as USA aion had…..

    There’s a HUGE difference. Just because it’s online/multiplayer and it’s popular doesn’t make it “MMO”.

    And why isn’t Lineage 2 on the list? Why is garbage like PW listed as being better than FW?

I’ve played runes of magic up to level 10 and I got bored. The graphics are weird and rubbish. Dragon’s nest is similar to vindictus, I played it for 20 mins and I automatically deleted it.

      true about aion, all content its entirely free, shop items are not to make your char better or stronguer than the others, its mostly pets, cosmetics, xp boosts and instance cooldown reduction items. however, in europe, i have to confess that gameforge is doing a bad work with it. we are already 2 months behind american aion regarding the new expansion.
      been an active aion player for almost 2 years when it was still subscription based, it was a bit of a grindfest back then, but now its a bit more easy to play, less grindy, more quests, can make money easyer than before, and becoming free made it have a big boost on player numbers, even in the old servers (2 were made new for F2P)
      not playing actively now, allways prefered subscription games and am now on tera, but im part of a gamming community wich is still very active in aion, and trying to expand into other games (League of Legends and Tera at the moment, plans for Guild Wars 2).

    Why are 99% of mmos fantasy?!?!? Can’t take this anymore. Fantasy overdose. This is probably the main reason why i’m enjoying DCUO so much but after two months of playing pretty much non stop i’m getting a bit bored (it is STILL lacking in content even with all the DLC). Want to try something else. But not anything with dragons and swords and armors. So i’m pretty much effed. I was gonna make an exception for AOC since i wanted to play this back when it came out but i learned that you get ganked al the time so no AOC for me. No game should encourage sociopathy (one great thing about DCUO, the option to switch back and forth between PVE server and PVP at all time without even logging out).

    (0)
    • Mark on June 20, 2012

      tired of fantasy? for free there is only 2 more beside dcuo i can suggest, altho one of them was in risk to shut down, company near bankrupcy. game is black prophecy, a space ship shooter, the ship equipment does change the ship look, and graphicaly its very good for a f2p game. only issue i had was that game developing and bug fixing can be slow some times (maybe thats why they are in risk of bankrupcy). liked the game graphicaly and in gameplay, but can be boring since most missions are kill X of Y. loved how equipment changes the design of the ships though, from engines to cockpit passing through weapons and wings, you can actually feel that your ship is evolving because it changes its looks.
      the 2nd game non fantasy i suggest is star trek online. i heard it was bad when it launched, but got an overall redesign before it came f2p i think. i played it, enjoyed it, char creation can go very deep, and ships are very faithfull to star trek universe. questing can be a litle boring, but whoever still subscribes the game can create missions for the game and whoever plays (subscription or free) can play those missions to relax from game questing. and its not only space missions, you have ground missions also, where your char and a npc team can go.

    Everyone knows LotRO is the best. If you actually care about storytelling and back story that is. Yes it may not be 100% f2p.. But Lord of the Rings lore just dumps on anything else. Especially the hyperdouche anime scheme of Aion, go listen to some korean pop music if you like Aion so much. They look the exact same. You actually feel involved with the lore in LotRO at least. Which is a huge bonus.

  234. FORC3EDG3gamer on June 20, 2012

    i’m pretty sure MMOBOMB is working on the update

    here’s mine top 5, don’t judge!

    1. DRAGON NEST and VINDICTUS – because the gameplay is fluid, and story is pretty descent for both.
    2. LotRo – because the story is EPIC!! and the combat/fashion system/and seasonal events are EPIC!
    3. DCUO – because it’s fun to play on my PS3! (free for PS3) this is the game where i spent most of my weekly allowance on, DLCs are pretty epic to!
    4. Runes Of Magic – dual class system is pretty unique, and customization is overwhelming(in a good way)
    5. Allods – you guys will probably hate me for this LOL! even though every agrees that it’s P2P, and has a crap storyline, it’s better than paying for WoW.

    –what’s your top MMORPG?–

  235. Mark on June 20, 2012

    the free mmo’s i enjoyed playing the most in the recent years:
    1-star trek online – space and ground missions, character customization very in-depth, player created missions to play, can be a litle repetitive in missions, however you get quite fast to max lvl, so it doesnt become too boring questing.
    2-forsaken world – nice graphs, nice mechanichs, character creation is very nice as is the classes, enjoyed it alot altho i had to quit because i became leader of a guild on a subscription game.
    3-black prophecy – more of a space shooter, but has rpg elements on it also, loved the graphics, loved the fact that every single equipment for the ship actually changes the ship visuals, not only statistics, char creation minimal since youll play with a ship, char is only a portrait. can become boring with repetitive missions, focused on PvP at higher levels.
    4-aion, i enjoyed playing it the most so far, but played it before it went f2p, thats why it went last, its not the ”free mmo i enjoyed playing the most” because i was a subscriber when i played it lol.
    the most detailed char creation on any mmo i ever seen, very detailed graphics, not as grindy as it was when launched, it was quite populated on some servers even before it went f2p, PvP oriented (remind this, pvp is allways ON on all servers, with an event that changes wich faction can invade the other faction world, changes every week, so if you dont like forced pvp, this might not be the game for you)

    It’s funny no one can come up with real reasons to argue why one game is better than the other, other than “OMG THAT GAME SUKS, YEW R SO STOOPID”

    You cant sit here and argue class systems, pvp arenas, leveling, overall gameplay, or anything else if thats all you have to say, you sound illiterate and highly ignorant. People that claim to be fans of mmo’s these days make me sick.

    If you dont know what your talking about keep your mouth shut. I agree with most of this list and I’ve played all of them except for Dragons nest. Which I’ve seen stems from the same developer of maple story. Which btw, is a good game. Its a pioneer of its style and other than Gaia Online (which I played in middle school, idk if it even exists anymore) Maple story dominates its market. Sure, following may have fallen off some, but its still played.

    Shaiya, as opposed to Lineage 2. They make look the same. But there obviously must be a reason why people have fallen off the lineage train and jumped to the Shaiya train.

    I disagree with oversea MMO’s mainly on the basis of similarity. They all either look the same, play the same or have the same storyline. Which in my opinion is distasteful.

    I am a HUGE follower of WoW, Which I believe will never be F2P, simply because of the large number of people that pay to play, and continue to pay. Of course they throw expansions at you like hotcakes but who actually likes playing Firelands over and over and over, once your geared enough to take the pressure off of getting slapped for Half a million damage.

    I also am an avid player of EVE online, Allods online and I’ve been looking at Age of Conan. Purely because they distance themselves from the norm and whats expected and do something new.

    Keep in mind kiddo’s these are my opinions, and they are stated in a well thought out manner. I say all this to differentiate between a healthy debate and being a complete fool.

    Instead of saying “YEW R SO DUMBBZORS N YEW R STOOPID FUR LYKING DAT GAME”

    I invite ALL of you to a healthy debate over MMO’s :]

    • Mark on June 20, 2012

      thumbs up for that mate. its unbelievable how kids talk these days without knowing about the subject when there is so much resources on internet to search about it, and this in cases they didnt lived the situation. im not an old player, but im not a noob on mmo’s, and when i started to see such kind of discussions about mmo’s, 1st thing i did was check sources about mmo history. kids nowadays dont bother to do this, they just want to act important on the internet cause they cant in theyr real life. want to be recognized and acepted towards others? then learn stuff before you talk about it. NO, WOW wasnt the 1st mmo, NO, a game isnt good just because it has better graphics, NO, a game isnt good just because it has lots of players.
      its all about preferences, wow is the most popular subscription game for years, yes it is good, however i dont like it and that doesnt give me the right to say wow sucks or ”you should play something else” or ”you are stupid for playing it”. learn about the competition before you argue about it, show facts instead of dumb arguments. good lord, are you kids getting so dumb that you dont know how to do a google search anymore? hope you can do it or progress is dead…..

    • element20three on June 26, 2012

      Agreed. Not a huge audience for healthy debate on this site (or even the internet as a whole). All I can say is the games which I found to be the most enjoyable and those which lost my interest quickly.

      DC Universe Online, and Aion have seemed to keep my interest the longest. I absolutely love DCUO combat style I believe this is a large reason why I still have a blast with it. Plus as a Comic fan I’m sure thats also a huge reason I’m still playing it.

      Vindictus was my very first MMO and for about 2 weeks I has an absolute blast. It quickly became way too repetitive and the gane being dungeon bases become a huge turn off for me. I believe that if it were an open world game then I would still be playing it now.

      Perfect world was ok. Its not a bad game but I’d rather spend my time playing other games which I have found highly enjoyable.

      MMOs being the nature that they are require a crap load of time to get to know and even more time to get good at. That being said, I feel that the majority of criticism directed at certain MMOs are most likely full of crap. Who really has the vast amount of time to get a good sense of all the MMOs that are out there?

  241. Dalamar on June 24, 2012

    Forsaken World isn’t even a game.
    There’s no reason to leave town aside from Zodiac bosses. There’s no pvp and even arena queues struggle.
    Pretty much all xp is gained in town, it’s repetitive with all the gimp dailies that give useless soul gold instead of real tradeable gold, and it’s the absolute most pay to win game I’ve ever seen. You can +12 your gear for free if you have a guild base and leave your pc on all day but you’re going to be spending 8 grand on mastery/resistance if you even hope to compete with the top players. And considering how little pvp there is, there’s not really anyone to own or brag about even if you do fork out the cash.

    The instances are boring and most aren’t even worth doing. They were at the start of the game since drops were worth money, but not now.

    Says a level 80 in one of the top 3 guilds on Eyrda. The only reason I still play it is because the game plays itself. I come on for IR and Zodiac, but we almost never have PVP for either one…

    I would vote Aion as the best F2P, but don’t take that as a compliment, the game is still awful.

    ^ I absolutely agree with you. I used to love FW (the tutorial for all the races are pretty cool), but the moment you get to freedom harbor, it becomes the most directionless, repetitive game on earth. if this game is in the top ten list, the world is a sad place indeed. my own top ten list:
    Aion
    Lineage2
    Aika
    ROM
    PWI
    Vindictus
    Dragons Nest
    DCUO
    Mabinogi

    I looked at this thread about 3 weeks ago trying to decide on a new game to play. I normally console game but decided to give PC a go.

    I chose Aion because it seemed to get the most votes here. It is AWESOME.

    I’ve spent countless hours playing already and got my char up to level 20. It is really addicting, tons of players playing, massive amounts of quests, maps are huge, so much stuff to do.

    Best part, it’s FREE.

    I’ll eventually end up playing Guild Wars II since it’s made by the same company. I’m sure it will rock.

      PVP is very simple. archers and magician are like melee classes since they dont use range on their attacks (No strategy at all.its just all based on whats your gear and lvl) . too much grinding ( need to kill mobs for 20 hrs to lvl up then get additional 3 points to your 1500 atk points), graphics is very simple, small maps, so many spammers.and poor craft system.

      very few variation on character looks. It only has five options on faces. you only get 8 type of armor for their 6 classes (iron, titanium, blustien, osmium, redosmium,mythril and thats it) it cant jump too. no voice acting. very few types of skills. you can solo it up to max lvl (not much of cooperation)

      bottom line: pw=questing and grinding, fw=instancing and dailies. both are repetitive. pw is older and less polished, but more noob friendly imo. i prefer pw; its pretty fun to play one of the newer classes, like earthguard or tideborn. if i were u, i would skip them entirely and play runes of magic or aion (best f2p mmorpg imho), or wait for Cabal2 or Neverwinter. those 4 are very good options.

      Just wait for Dota 2 tbh, its in beta and already more fun and has a far higher skills cap. LoL was fun for a bit but its nothing compared to dota

      LOTRO is fun but can get boring after awhile, cuz nobody wanna fight fair in PvM and its always the same monsters(just bigger and uglier), quests, instances over and over.

      If you want awesome Gear you got to do the same instance over and over and over…boring

      Classes are great.
      Map is huge Pro and con, Pro – Lots of things to do, Con – Horse Riding is still to slow.
      The crafting System is well thought out(in my opinion). getting the mats are hard.

      Stop playing when got 75 with awesome gear after how many months(played only over weekends) then when I it, new gear was able to collect with the same Skirmishes got bored to doing it again.

      All and All must try game atleast once.

      the list was made before aion went free mate. lots of comments about aion above though. if it wasnt gameforge managment delaying 3.o in europe, i would be playing it still. now its just too late, im tired of waiting, waiting for guild wars 2 instead. you pay the game, but no subscriptions in it.
