mmorpg top 10

    Warhammer age of rekoning was a brilliant colourful hack and slash style dungeon game, but it required players to play the game content and there simply were not any at any point in its short life it was released in the same period when free to play became avalible so it never really got a foothold. which is a shame because you would have really enjoyed it. Starwars galaxies was a good game but mostly just 1/2 a game. it was colourful enough to warrant playing for a while at least anyway. it old style crafting system before the update were just so grindy and boring I never really started playing it until it was revamped. Guild wars was a good game, but you can have a really good game and totally mess it up but not implementing something as obvious as a trading system. eventually this becomes frustrating enough to simply not want to play any more. runescape was a very popular free to play game and I think it stll is although I have never played it. I never really stopped hearing about people bragging about their runescape accounts in all the mmo's I played over the last 13 years. Ever Quest 2 is dungeons and dragons style hack and slash, in its day a very fun game but today it is very blocky and feels very robotic. although the lore and quests are still fascinating to fans of the genre the gameplay is simply to out of date to warrant any real commitment. World of warcraft was entertaining strictly for its end game content, the raid. which were very challenging and require real organization. it brough people together and got people on live voice chat. now a days its very hard to enjoy the end game content as the player base mostly consists of people who have no real grasp of what I just explained, and fining a raid guild is must harder due to many players leaving the game for less blocky point and click the same spells hack and slash style dungeon romp. they have totally ruined the game with poorly implemented expansions. im sorry if you are young and think its great. I played lineage. I thought is was such a wannabee anime fanboy piece of trash I just had to stop playing, I think people played it simply because they had invested to much time in it. it was actually a very poor game. LoTR online is a very very very boring game. it takes like 3 hours to travel to the location you want to get to. They deleted my charecters when the ownership of the game changed and I simply cant be assed to level more because it is just such a real boring pipe smoking piece of long winded poo. Star trek online was ok for like 1/2 and hour then you have played all the game content then the olny reason to lkeep playing is unlocking the expensive lockboxes to get new ships. its also quite boring just because theres nothing to do, although the game content that is there is pretty fun and good enough it is simply too small a game for any type of commitment. The matrix online was a good game. last I checked f you send an email to the developers they will send you a link to the client page. but it may have closed down. a very interesting game with crazy skills and ingenious crafting skills. but the gameplay coulc be very annoying and the pvp element meant you could become engaged in pvp when you were minding your own business. but its was just too interesting to not play. So basically summarizing you cannot play the good MMO's anymore as they have all been switched off. I have not found any good MMO for many years that rank up to any I have described previously

    I am working with a indie label on a mmo in development... I cannot drop names at this time on the label or the game title or a beta release. But i can say what from i have worked on and seen... There is always new ground to stand on and new ways to do things. I am a dos era gamer. Tells you how long i have been playing games... I enjoy all game types, but have yet to see one that reaches for a new level of interface and interaction... I prefer a good story or just shoot em up style games, but most of all the questing and player interaction interfaces... Still out of every mmo played, i most enjoyed Voyage Century... It had the best flow and feel out of all the games i have played. I have played way to many games honestly... Very few do i ever get addicted too... It's not that i don't give most games a chance, it's just the mass of them are exactly the same just said differently and there is a lack of things to do and the way their system introduces it. As far as world of warcraft, it is an ok game, only cause it pushes the boundaries of the multiplayer interface and is absolutely over rated cause of it's huge advertisement base much like terribly made tv shows that become popular... All in all it is all about interface and how it is presented and can be used. We all love the hunting rare things end of games and is a great part of what makes them addicting... But there is a lot of failures out there in creating... Deadlines and tight budgets to create cause these markets to fill up with garbage quick... I guess it all depends on what the person likes as well and individualism can only be expressed so far in all of the games on the market... Well i aim to change that and am pushing the boundaries of interface to a whole new level... It looks all to familiar at first but when the game opens up, you will find yourself deeply immersed in a innovative and constantly expanding environment that offers so much it will take you a decade to experience it all... That is all i can say about the project and my views at this time...

    How cute, all these new generation kids that only game for 2-8 years saying what the best MMORPG is/was. :s How the fuck can they have a clue when they weren't playing online games the moment the best games ever got released.... To all the ones who say Runescape, WildStar and such -> HAH. If you are not talking about WoW/Asheron's Call/Dark Age of Camelot then you guys fail or only played 1-5 MMORPG's ever
  • thommy-kane - August 13, 2014 7:51 p.m.

    Wildstar is way better than Wow. However, I beta Archage, and it's going to change the face of MMO's forever.
  • inconnue-malconnue - August 25, 2014 1:46 a.m.

    "Wildtstar is way better than wow" Hahahahaha xD nice one ^^ "Archeage ... going to change the face of MMO's forever" oooooh men you awesome x)
  • ge-ganso - August 26, 2014 7:05 a.m.

    Sigh, are you 12-18 years old? I myself also play ArcheAge and played WildStar beta since January and retail for 1.5 months, also have I played WoW since Vanilla in 2004 raiding until Naxxramas (the original Naxx). WildStar is 5% of what World of Warcraft used to be, it's not even fun or beautiful, it's a MMORPG for little kids who love Nickelodeon, in fact, WildStar = Nickelodeon MMORPG. The fact that you say WS > WoW is clear for everyone that you did not play WoW: Vanilla+TBC (all expansions after that were for braindead people, no challenge, no fun, no originality, no atmosphere). And your last sentence sigh, I've heard that sentence since the launch and success of World of Warcraft, all haters keep saying, "This MMO is going to kill WoW". 10 years later.... Still not a single MMORPG who even got at the knees of WoW. Kid.

    WoW took me 11 hours before I got bored. Maybe it was because I never got into the whole raiding and multiplayer co-op...but heck I played Tera solo for about 3 weeks before I decided it wasn't worth finishing. At least that game didn't ma,e me feel super overwhelmed. The longest time I ever spent playing an MMO was Guild wars at a whopping 8 months. I had bought it to play with friends but ended up getting bored with trying to find a good clas that I liked. I had multiple level 20 characters but could never take the time to complete the story. Played Guild Wars 2 for about 3 months before it felt stale to me (or maybe it was just my computer not being able to handle the large quantities of enemies in the later stages) And I've been wanting to play FFXIV, but every time I see someone talk about how awesome it is, I'm reminded that it's subscription based... Paying for a subscription just annoys me mentally because then I feel obligated to play the game. I hate that, whcih is another reason I will never get into EVE either (despite how much I would probably enjoy that game)

    So in short you don't really play MMOs and posted a page of useless feedback.
  • teo-huyen - July 24, 2014 3:33 p.m.

    Where is Blade & Soul? Not on the list just because it has not been available in the West?
  • Armerus - July 24, 2014 10:12 a.m.

    Ok, I don't really think a lot of people on here understand. Firstly, this is from one persons perspective, Yes, so in their opinion this is the list of the best in what appears to be increasing order. People who, for example, complain and say WoW is not the best MMO out there or 'no one thinks that' clearly don't understand how this works. World of Warcraft is a game, True? Well the purpose of a game is to entertain? So currently for over 7 million players (The most any MMO has), their opinion would be that it is worth spending money on, Correct? Therefore, This would probably suggest that it IS doing as intended the best out of all the MMO's. Its simple statistics.

    Hey, how about Age of Conan? I think that game certainly ranks up there with LotRO, even better, in some aspects.
  • ge-ganso - August 26, 2014 7:11 a.m.

    :-s AoC was a fail just like Warhammer. There are 30 better MMORPG's than AoC like WoW, Asheron's Call, Anarchy Online, LineAge, Ragnarok Online, A Tale in the Desert and the very best was Dark Age of Camelot (DAoC), I am playing monthly fee MMORPG's since 1997, I've also tried almost all MMORPG's coming out in beta. AoC is not even close to be a top 50 MMORPG of All Times.

    The Secret World is a unique game. No classes or levels with your exp you buy skills that, most of the time, are bound to weapons and you can use 7 active and 7 passive. The main quest have no text walls, all of them are with small cutscenes. If you like horror games you should give it a try. The game is buy to play, I got it with 15 euros and it's well worth it, with DLC that you can buy. Or you can subscribe for free access to all DLC and monthly bonuses, mostly coins for buying cosmetic items.

    Allods Online is game that wan't to take players in missery and ripp there pockets. After you get to top lvl you need to grind for gear, upgrading gear cost lot of gold and scrolls that you need to buy from store you can end like me at 10 time failed upgrade only at first lvl and lose alot of money in that process. If you got money to play games that consume money, you can find better one.
  • Bluerain12ya - July 11, 2014 10:16 a.m.

    Is this list based on actual features or the popularity each has? I love how WoW is the no1 on every list even though there are other games with much more complexity, features, opportunities and interaction. This is getting boring, really... If Blizzard was paying a penny for the publicity each time somebody puts WoW on the top of the list, they would have gone bankrupt a long time ago... No wonder it is the most popular... "Yeah man, it's the top number one, you should play it" then people don't even look at other games that they may like better. No WoW all the way.
  • nate-beers - June 28, 2014 5:37 a.m.

    Ummmm.... How is Final Fantasy XI not in the top 25? That was the best game ever. Puts Wow to shame.
  • lordshinjuku - June 27, 2014 10:27 a.m.

    why no Final Fantasy XI love its been going on for 12 yrs and still fun. They hv even made tons of adjustments and enhancments to make lvling easier.Still playing FFXI and Im playing Final Fantasy XIV. XIV is fun but still doesnt match up with XI. Tryed WOW and got bored after about 6 months. Star wars TOR is fun and since its Free to play made an account for my son so we can run around together.
