    ===========The Mmorpg Counselor========== >1.Decide-what do you expect from an mmorpg /fun / combat / graphics / pvp / raiding /other >2.Explore-there are not always top 3 or top 10 choices, yours might be in top 20,30 ,again depends on the player these might help " " " " ,just examples >3.Confirm- that you will be able to play it if its p2p/f2p, on language you can understand, with good enough ping for your area, that it is optimised if you dont have an expensive computer,rig, population of the game.. >4.Realise- it doesnt always have to be 1 mmorpg, you can complement 2 or unlikely more, if you only so find the time and select content you like from each, or you can do different type of game and complement an mmorpg with moba, or action game ,gaining fast pace easy archivements in moba/action but still keeping track of your mmorpg char The choices you make shouldnt be swayed by others, or marketing, only facts and preferences are to guide you, as once you enter a select title, it may grant you a good time .. or not. Personally i consider mmorpg f2p scene like a breeze in the desert atm, pay to play has final fantasy, guild wars 2 to offer ,and they are probbably good, for a time. After RF Online, Forsaken World, Aion, Tera, Rift and many other titles i've played, my wish is to take a break and wait. Gonna wait for Archeage to explore and find out why it had such a bad start , and test Black Desert and decide is it just graphics that are good or is there more to it, than later on Everquest Next ,and Titan. All in due time, there has to be something other than gaming we need be doing with our lives.This is the break time i found. Good luck on your search

    You whole passed over Mortal on-line. Like virtually ninety nine of what this represented for the longer term of mmo's is in Mortal on-line aside from parkour... the last word game is out there, go play it... OH and its still in beta therefore do not expect an ideal polish, however it's change perpetually visit

    What happened to Star Citizen?
  • Evanesco - April 15, 2014 2:10 p.m.

    Why does The Division slide say it's releasing in 2015? The developers have come right out and said, twice, that it's on track for this year. Why does nobody listen....
  • Ryuzakai - March 23, 2014 11:56 a.m.

    well I have played ESO now and I must say after waiting and watching all the news and updates when I finally got my beta key to test it out I was sorely disappointed with what I saw seriously was just like any other generic fantasy mmo poor movement animation poor lighting (like watching underworld) poor mobs really I hate to run it down as I was looking so much forward to playing thinking it would be the 'ONE' sadly no .... as it was by complete accident I stumbled across something else.. Age Of Wulin omfg... if u a love of martial arts and beautiful graphics open world pvp or instance pve check this game out they do things I have never seen in mmos before I cant stress enough how fluid it is and how lifelike the animation is.. ok enough about that yeah also im waiting for blade n soul to emerge in EU or US but as they have just got into Korean CB I doubt that will happen anytime soon maybe a couple of years... heres hoping....
  • laineygarretson - July 2, 2014 10:07 a.m.

    I agree ESO is nothing like the Elder Scrolls game. It's like they masked a cheezy linear mmo with the Elder scroll look. I wish the real Elder Scrolls games could have more than one person like co op....

    I already dumped my money into TESO and I totally missed out on the beta(s). I had emergency repair work to inspect on some questionable oil rigs. I hope I chose the correct game to invest in as it will probably need to last me a couple years. That's not long for a MMORPG so it shouldn't be a problem.
  • SpeedHighway - February 21, 2014 4:49 p.m.

    Camelot Unchained is not even remotely a 2014 release. I've been watching the development of thta one since early kickstarter where I helped fund it and the alpha for it is not even scheduled til the end of this year, with the beta mid-way through next year. (As it clearly states on the kickstarter page you suggest that readers visit.)
  • SpeedHighway - February 21, 2014 4:45 p.m.

    Camelot Unleashed - been watching it since I assisted in the kickstarter. However, this is not even REMOTELY a 2014 game. The game will begin alpha near the end of this year, and won't even be in beta til next year. A great game with outstanding potential, but should not be part of this list.

    OtherLand is a canceled game. It's been canceled for quite a while now, so I don't know why you would put that up here
  • bonbonmon - January 18, 2014 9:05 a.m.

    You TOTALLY skipped over Mortal Online. Like literally 99% of what this described for the future of mmo's is in Mortal Online except for parkour... The ultimate game is out there, go play it... oh and its still in beta so don't expect a perfect polish, but it's updating constantly
  • iRailon - February 16, 2014 3:01 a.m.

    Mortal Online is not in beta...the beta began over 4 years ago and they've already had two expansions. I don't really blame you though as the game has received a lot of bashing for the fact that it still feels like an unpolished beta years after release. Mortal Online had a good idea behind it, but it's lack of any kind of direction, story, or quests leaves it to just one massive grind where you eventually realize that even Kill X of X quests are more fun than what you're doing.
  • ego13 - February 21, 2014 12:36 p.m.

    Mortal Online is also horribly P2Win...while I can't stand F2P...if you're going to tout yourself as such you shouldn't completely gimp your F2P'ers. Mortal is bad....and once people realize it's just a money-grab and move on to....hell Minecraft is better....the better.
  • song-li - November 1, 2013 12:27 a.m.

    Im interesting on Black Desert Online, Blade & Soul. and other game. Too many to list. Does anyone have any idea when they going to release?
  • AJinFLA - October 19, 2013 11:32 p.m.

    I just want one game like the old Everquest, or Ultima where when you die you can actually lose something. Games are so nerfed out and "safe". Is there really no market for a realistic PVP world? I realize some people cry when they lose their twinked out gear they worked for.... but that has to be some kind of market for an actual game where you are scared to die.
  • vincent-rhodes - October 21, 2013 6:23 p.m.

    If that's what you are looking for try Eve Online,my name is Tzu Wu on there,would be more than happy to show you the ropes.
  • nicolas-munster-munsen - October 26, 2013 7:24 p.m.

    I Completely agree with you. I love PVP, but with all the current games, as you said, everything is "safe". It seems anyone who plays the current generation of games is missing out on what PVP truly is. Without risk, there isn't any reward. (and it isn't fun). I do play EVE, and in that, there is risk when doing PVP, but it isn't the same (I still play and have fun, its just different).
  • danny-burridge - November 6, 2013 1:27 p.m.

    Try Darkfall Unholy Wars its an openworld pvp with safezones but if u die u loose everything thats not in your bank
  • vaylgar - December 22, 2013 8:47 p.m.
