Top Ten MMORPG Games

The top ten massive multiplayer online role-playing games to date.

The Top Ten

1 World of Warcraft

I play world of warcraft for years and I will never stop playing I have 4 level,85 now and they own, world of warcraft can't be stopped cause no game would be better than this game! You need to eat drink repair dungeons quests armor mounts 1 big world love it

This game lacks the overall story offered by FFXI but finishes on top by having far better gameplay and combat variety, many games lack this, combat is what you will be doing for 90% of you time on any level based game. WoW also does not offer one way to level up as it is the case with most of the MMORPS out there.

FFXI is okay. It has a top rating on this site only because the WoW fans are too busy playing. I have been diehard as far as a FF fan but for this day and age, the games graphics look horrible compared to WoW. I uninstalled it. I could have improved it visually but that involved messing with the registry. And No one should have to go through all that. They need to stop making expansions and just launch a completely new one. Until then, WoW is better.

I play World of Warcraft for years and this is my favorite game. Many players say they hate it, but this happens because they play this game more than 2 hours per day, and this makes the game seem more and more boring on their eyes. If you want to play a game don't play it hardcore because soon the game will be more and more boring. World of Warcraft is the best MMORPG, but it lacks on Graphics. This game has a big variety that the other MMORPGs would dare challenge this variety. This game has also the best story line that I have ever seen, and this is my main reason why I play this game. At least you can take part on this story. It allows the players to enter in different types of combat: against NPCs that is called PvE and against other online players that is called PvP which makes the player have some fun playing it. World of Warcraft gives players a lot of different abilities that is a part of its variety and this game requires skills and the players must know how to use spells. ...more

2 Entropia Universe

Great 3D Cryengine 2 Graphics, breathtaking scenery, loads of untapped potential, many great people from all over the world and from all demographics. The Entropia Universe is in constant expansion.

A real cash economy. What more could you ask for to keep the weenies out! After over 2 years playing hard EU still rocks the competition. Other games seem pointless when a RCE allows you to actually gain real life value for your gaming.

Great for people who seek nice graphics, excitement and a lot less 14 year olds running around calling each other nub and other more unfriendly names

Quite honestly, this is my end game. I have never felt so challenged by such a game as this one. It definitely has a very steep learning curve, and I would not recommend this game to just a casual gamer who won't take the time to research and educate themselves on the mechanics of the game. You can either play within your means and smartly to constantly gain skills, or you can go on expensive hunts blowing your load and lose your ass than cry about it on the forums. The game isn't very transparent, they don't just give you information on how the loot system dynamics work, and there are a lot of those who are auction hall wizards that constantly profit off of the knowledge they have gained over the years through the auction system.

There's just so much depth to this game that it's hard to describe. The different professions and the ability to modify items, crafting, mining, hunting. There's an ingame event system that can run sponsored events for great prizes... People with ...more

3 Runescape

I personally love playing Runescape! My neighbor made my account for me when I was 8 and I've been playing for 5 years and I enjoy it!

Runescape is awesome! You can do quests, train levels, talk to other players. Not so great graphics though. It's really fun! Try it.

The best game I ever played its free and fun I played from 2003 and I still love it played with 5m players lots of skills lots of monsters and lots of fun quests minigames events rewards more then 100 servers try runescape!

I played RS when I was 13 and I quit when I was 15. Some propaganda has "forced" me to play WoW instead of RS. I created a Human Mage (I better had to pick Horde undead cause Horde dominate Battlegrounds like Isle of Conquest) and Orc Warrior. It was since the release of Wrath Of The Lich King. All you have to do in World Of Warcraft is 90% combat and 10% skills. You have to choose 2 primaire skills like Tailoring and Enchanting (of course there are more) and the rest are secondary skills (like cooking). In World of Warcraft, you quest till you get uncommon gear or rather "green gear". Then you go dungeons till you get rare gear "blue-gear". And at last, be sure you get capped in Hit-rating and got enough crit-chance for your Mage Fire Spec for example and you go RAID. There you get epic-gear "the purple-gear" and maybe you will get LEGENDARY weapon "the-orange weapon". That's all what you have to do in WoW. And if you got into the ...more

4 Lineage 2

Very addictive but highly competitive PvP and PvE wise.

Open world PvP, fair karma system, exciting PvP with clan wars and mass sieges on castles, but allot of GRIND (level and gear) to be able to compete.

Suggesting to people who like grind and have competitive natures. Not suggesting to people who like to get all easy and get upset at getting killed.

I quit this game, and after looking at others, always return to lineage 2, hope they make L3 soon...

There are no comments to be made, it is pure and simple the best mmorpg. 90% from every mmorpg that came on market are some sort of cheap copies.
Thanks and NCSoft we wait for L3

5 Dream Of Mirror Online

A game based on relationships, player interaction, and overall community play. Dream Of Mirror Online is the best game for anyone that decides to play with friends, lovers, or even make new friends.

The publisher and company is very interactive with their players, the GMs are extremely active. They don't stay hidden from the players and do background work. All problems and reports are solved quickly and bugs and glitches are addressed in the best possible way.

The community is also mature and literate, not typing in 1337 and 'net speek. There's a few bad people here and there, but they're eventually reported by the Game Sages, local volunteer "Game Masters" with no powers except being able to directly talk to a Game Master. Game Sages are legit, they're like any normal player, just with more trust with Aeria and their employees.

The graphics are cute and perfect for anime fans, with cel-shading and glow effects.

The gameplay is amazing. Class ...more - naikaze

This game looks ok - ElSherlock

DOMO is by far the best MMORPG game. There are tons of fun stuff to do besides leveling. The players are great; they're active, nice, and just plain awesome. This is the ONLY MMO I have been able to stick to. I have been playing for a little more than 2 years, and I'm still leveling all the time. The job system is awesome. You can be any job you want, and change jobs any time you want. And, you can have subs from two other jobs on the one you're currently on. For example, you could be on Doctor, and have Wizard or Musician subs. The system has endless options. You really can't run out of things to do when it comes to DOMO, it's great. c: - TreCoolness

The company and its employees, Game Masters and Moderators, actually interact with their players, rather than hide and do background work. Problems are quickly solved, and issues, such as bugs, glitches, and hackers, are reported and fixed.

Gameplay is relaxing, it's not a constant grind like any other online game. Many quests await you as you log into the game.

It's community and relationship-based, so find your friends, lovers, and family, and bring them into the Mirror World! - naikaze

6 League Of Legends

I love this game, it requires skill, but after a fews games you will actually learn to play and enjoy it. YOu get different types of champions and there are no money benefits, that's why I love it

This isn't an MNORPG game - ElSherlock

BEST GAME EVER, there are over millions of people playing this game( doesn't mean everything) they won a lot of awards and they are the best pc game IN THE WORLD( my opinion)

I adore this game! The community though is really bad this game would be a lot better if people would leave other people alone. I do love the game play, the characters, the lore, and the skins I have probably spent a lot on this game laugh out loud but totally worth it! I hope it gets higher up on the list because at least the creators do a lot for their players even taking skin ideas from fan arts! I love League and if anyone wants to pla Dacsgoddess is my name

7 Guild Wars

Despite the game being 6 years old, Guild Wars is definitely the best online game in my books, especially for serious players and deserves a number 1 spot. It's balanced and well thought out and unlike some games, you will never see things being sold by GW for real money that would advantages one player over another.

The first thing I look for in a game is the storyline, it has to be interesting and immersing, to keep me wanting more. Guild Wars certainly offers you that. A very rich main story to follow, interesting and often difficult missions bonuses to complete and lots of optional side quests. The game has a nice clear direction to follow which makes it fairly easy to get started.

All your characters are able to explore the beautifully detailed vast world of 3 campaigns (each very different, yet connected) as well as an expansion pack so there's is lots to do if you get them all. I've been playing almost every day for 2 years and still have a bit left to do. So ...more

It's the best MMORPG ever created. It has amazing graphics and not a high requirement for a G card. No subscription absolutely puts it in this list and the gameplay although not so free as you may find at other MMOs but its different and at least try it! Thanks!

This game has ten classes to choose - ElSherlock

I have the game for 4 years and I still playing! Is amazing, you are not a Online playing if you not try Guild wars at least one time

8 Star Wars: The Old Republic

The gameplay looks good - ElSherlock

I've tried other MMORPGS with varying degrees of interest. However, none of them ever stood out as much as The Old Republic. I'm not wild about Star Wars but I loved both KOTOR 1 & 2. While this isn't exactly the same thing it's still incredibly fun and the fact that it's free to play helps. It just felt very story driven and the multiplayer was more of an added bonus than an essential part of the game.

The best ever.. Good graphic... Gameplay crazy good... Storylines the best ever see... Must too have when you like to play MMORPG... What to hell do this game on position 100 up... Crazy vote for this great game

If one were to grind this game out there would still be more than 600 hours worth of gameplay. The story lines are great, each one completely different from the last. 8 story lines in all, graphics aren't bad, 8 classes in all, plus you can be a Sith Lord, what more could you want? It takes Stuff from Mass Effect, the story changes on how you have chosen things in the past, you can get to know about your companions' past and even romance them (and maybe something more). Not to mention the new content coming out every month now, this game has so many possibilities (and zombies).

9 Maplestory

This game rocks, you will love it. It is a game that will make you feel happy relax, and just plain have fun

Great game! Don't judge it just for the graphics. It's simple but that's what make you enjoy it!

this game can be troublesome for the system requirements but once played and you can't get rid of it from your mind

MapleStory was the most addicting I ever played. Hats off to Wizet, and now to Nexon who currently own it. You guys designed, potentially, the best 2D MMORPG every made and published on this earth. It had the perfect trading system, unlike most MMORPGs (like runescape), there was a chat box in the trade and stores, so people could easily communicate. The questing system was very organized, and the Job Advancement system was one of the best. I quit this game last August, because, although it's one of the best games, and I still love it, the people in it aren't nearly as great. Some very immature and unethical players and WAY too many bot/hackers. If this was fixed, and the game was mad more mature, I'd come back any day.

10 Final Fantasy XI

best game simply for the community. cooperative, not destructive. I'm so tired of "newb/noob/n00b/nub got pwn'd/owned/pawned" my eyes want to bleed

i have played wow for 3 years. 85 on almost all jobs. stopped when it took my last toon 3 play days to get to 85. dailies and dungeons... and newbs/noobs/n00bs... nubs.

rift was ok but it got old fast. community was to start but slowly getting to the wow thing... nub

i won't even discuss the utter disappointed that it ffxiv. so much potential. the ball dropped and shattered.

i began ffxi at na pc release and played until our ls leader left for wow. I had about half the classes at 75 or 80 then. the best game ever.

much better graphics than wow. look at the procedurals on the models. ffxi's character model are MADE for each model. wow procedurals stretch to fit each model. makes it pixely. wow does have glowy effects to distract you from bad texturing.

ffxi does have a slower battle ...more

I played FFXI for 6 years and I still miss it. It has the best and most expansive story of any MMO that I've ever played, and the music is awe-inspiring. The interface is odd and unique, since it was designed for multiple systems, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy and fun. This game takes a lot of time though, as nothing in this world is simply given to you. Everything is hard work, but it also makes you feel like you've really accomplished your goals and completed something. You feel like you've earned your just rewards. I love this game!

FFXI was the first MMORPG I ever played. I fell in love with it from day one. I thought that MMO's were the greatest thing since sliced bread and that they were all created equal at this point. So I started playing a free trial of WoW that came in a magazine. In a week I had hit level 30 and had pretty much explored the whole continent because the higher level NPC's would only chase me for a hundred meters or so. I even got a bird to fly on in the first week which made it even easier to travel. I felt like I had experienced practically the whole game in week one.

FFXI on the other hand took me months to get to level 30 including sub-job, chocobo and an airship pass. When I was level 12 in La Theine a stranger around the same level asked me if I would accompany/escort him to Bastok for safety purposes. Up to this point I had spent most of my time chopping wood and learning the game in Ronfaure with little knowledge of anything outside of there. We loaded up and headed off. I ...more

A game requiring extensive teamwork that offers thousands of hours of enthralling game play.

Released as early as May 16, 2002, The game still offers some of the best Realistic-Fantasy graphics on the market to date.

Dubbed "The worlds first cross-platform MMO", Final Fantasy 11 was and still is available to more players than any other MMO in existence.

Many players feel the game was ruined by the newest expansions for the game: "Vision of Abyssea", "Scars of Abyssea", and "Heroes of Abyssea"

As the game became older Squaresoft/Square Enix attempted to make another Final Fantasy Online game: Final Fantasy 14.

The primary Director of 14 was Nobuaki Komoto, However, as successful as he may have been in the directing of Final Fantasy 11, However, He was relieved of directing 14 due to the poor reception of the game, and replaced by Naoki Yoshida.

The game grows smaller as it gets older, but servers ...more

The Contenders

11 Star Wars Galaxies

Was the best game ever until the entire combat system was changed into a more easier kid-like system. Obtaining the jedi class was one of the biggest and hardest goals, and once achieved you felt like you had more power than the majority of players. You could make your own city and become mayor of it with other players under you. Amazing game for rp. But like I said the game is not what it use to be thanks to certain people.

Even thought a lot of people hated the Combat upgrade, I still liked the game very much as it existed, before the dark times, before Lucas has become greedy and closed it for the new game... Even after reaching your maximum level, the game has just started if you reached it, the collection system, the City battles for Faction control and points, the special Events all of this made this game better then A LOT of other MMORPGs where after reaching maximum level you just don't got anything to do. RIP SWG, and I hope Lucas knows what he did to all of his biggest fans with closing THIS game...!

There is just something about this game that keep's people coming back. unlike most MMO's where the entire economy/game/pvp is always the same and super easy to master, swg is always changing and once you master one thing, you see that there is so much more to be discoverd, I'm not sure if there is one person in that game that would honestly know it all

Fun at first, Great pvp/trading. Still doesn't get the star warsy feeling

12 Neverwinter

I love this game. Its captivated me for months on end. My parents grounded me for a while just to get me off this game - SilverArcticWolf

There are zombies in this game - ElSherlock

its free

Gotta be one of the best FREE MMORPG games out there. The graphics and effects are nice, very nice story line, awesome quests. Plus, the Foundry. It virtually has infinite amount of quests so you'll never get tired of it. PvP is awesome, the guild system works amazing. I really don't know how this game is free, but I'm glad it is and that's why I think it deserves to be in, at least, the top three.

13 Aion: The Tower of Eternity

This is my second MMORPG game and it is one of the best because a lot of things you can do in a very cool: the story dynamic graphics and some very good atmosphere in the house playing

And this is only the beginning of the forthcoming new version 4.0 (on EU servers) under the new title of dark betrayal, and if you see what will be new then you simply have to agree with me that this is one of the best MMORPG game that should be among the top 5 in my opinion

I've played AION since the release of version 2.7.
It is clearly an excellent game which fits your desires and has an epic storyline that just keeps you coming. With the new updates coming it, you always have something to do! Can't wait till August for version 4.0!

Damn man, this game is amazing, really good story, mechanics, pvp is very fun, faction system is great, well I don't know how a game so great can be here in this position, but if you like this like me, let others people to know how good Aion is.

This game is really good, is amazing, I could not believe its current position in this ranking. I think it should be in top ten, because it is a very complex and well-built game, and the OSTs are fantastic.

14 Dungeons & Dragons Online

Dungeons and Dragons Online takes the modern idea that an mmorpg should be an easy experience that you can hop in real quick and get half the game over with, and slaps it in the face with a disembodied orc arm. It has many different aspects that can appeal to people, but also some that can scare people off. As a word of caution every positive can be a negative to you.

First is the questing system and how it's different. The only "free" area is in the city of stormreach really, it's one of the few places that you can move around and interact with all the other players freely. Every quest is instanced. Each quest also has difficulty settings: Casual (for a lenient experience), Normal (the intended play), Hard (everything is +1 level above what it's suppose to be, on a scale of 20 that a lot. ), and Elite (+2 above, or the hardest mode). Personally I do every quest on elite, have not played any quest lower then elite for last year or two of playing. The casual play can ...more

There are classic monsters in this game - ElSherlock

This game is amazing best game I ever seen so far if you compare it to ANY of the other games I think this game deserves a number one it have the BEST player vs player system and the best part is the classes JUST PLAY THIS GAME ITS GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL

Best PvE experience out there. If your looking for PvP look elsewhere. This is a team based game with loads of customization and regular updates. My favorite part is that there is very little grind and the journey to end game is just as good as the end game. Just don't go to the forums there all a bunch of whiners :P

15 The Elder Scrolls Online

Tons of content. Tons of customization. Fun action combat full of strategy. Great graphics and immersion for an mmo. New significant content added every month or two. People are very critical of it because the sub and early bugs. Bugs are fairly fleshed out but you sill run into them occasionally. Some work still needs to be done with balancing. Some content lacks re-playability. I don't like questing being the primary grind. Future announced patches/content address most issues as the development team listen closely to players.

Should be ranked higher.

It's fresh. I tested beta too. As a WoW player I can say it's amazing. Is it better than WoW? Not sure...

I will treat this game like my son. Of it doesn't get top 3 I will be so disappointed

I've never played this game but I don't want to waste my money on it when the pictures I look up for it look a little to cartoony for me.

16 Guild Wars 2

The graphics of this game look beautiful - ElSherlock

Great gameplay, excellent graphics. Very friendly social environment. So much to do and keep you busy. I love the puzzle jumpers and events. The Gem Store is fun or convenience items only, not gameplay updates to give people with money advantages. I love the Trait system. Large numbers of the same class can all have different builds based on their style of play. WoW is very cookie cutter which I disliked.I. E There is only one way to be effective at your choice role and it made it very restrictive gameplay.

This game is amazing! There is always something new to do because they always add new content with the living story... It has the friendliest playing environment ever... And the story line is awesome.

It is a revolution in playing of RPG. No more tanks, healer and DPS needed. After 6 years in World of Warcraft I can compare it. In GW2 is smart quest system (there is no necessary take quest from quest giver, hand in quest, get another one in the same location and again and again), game is very social with a lot of puzzles, activities, separate PvP and WvW worlds. Personal bank system for all characters is also well done.
I think I will stay in the Guild Wars world for a lot of years if anything got wrong. World of Warcraft was perfect game 10-5 years ago but nowadays it is ancient game with ancient play system, destroyed story with nonsense kung-fu pandas, with strange tamagotchi pet improvement, not balanced leveling system where the highest level player is able run and finish Burning Crusade or WotLK dungeon alone...
Guild Wars 2 is a new way how to do top MMORPG

It's an addictive game when you've first started.
I can't even stop playing when in school.

18 Lord Of The Rings: Shadows Of Angmar

I am an expert dedicated and proud hard core gamer throughout the MANY years, of all types and any types of games. I have played far and wide, from pc, to Nintendo64, coin-machines, ps3, to portable hand-held games, and everything in-between. And for someone of my expertise and experience to tell you a game is GOOD! Takes a lot, not even good, AMAZINGLY MIND-BLOWING! So mash that the MMORPG Wow, has been compared to it!, and not the other way around. In term of its advanced graphics, Combat system, community, quest, massive content, and over-all experience, it stands above and alone, and beyond! So mush, that it has won numerous awards of all the deranged types, throughout its five year life span which is pretty incredible, and that is not even scratching the very top of the barrel. This LOTR Mmorpg holds the most massive World ever developed, so much that there still expanding, and not even half way done, yet! And NOW has become A FULL FREE TO PLAY GAME! Instead of purchasing it! It ...more

LOTRO is a mix between beautifull images perfectly crafted and a a story that is simply unbeliveable, diferents ways to fight and even be in the light side or be in the dark side

Been playing this game since release. Played nearly every game on this list, and I can say, this game has the most dedicated staff out there. The amount of content that they put into this game is astounding. They do not stop, and are no where close to finishing their goals. Great support, great fan base. The game itself keeps driving you on to do more, very much like Everquest did. Great visuals, and story to satisfy the best of Tolkien fans. If you haven't played it, please give it a try. You won't be disappointed in what is there. For those that have left the game, I play a ton of games, and in so doing, have left for months at a time, but always end up coming back, and playing like an Evercrack addict.

This game is not just for casual players. There is plenty of raid content. The combat is also more challenging than many of the newer games out there. The skills require thoughtful use, so dying fighting normal mobs is a real possibility if you don't know what you're doing. Also, it has a very mature community and the most active roleplayers of any game I have played. The way they have integrated the Tolkien lore is very well done.

19 DC Universe Online

DC games are good as the comics - ElSherlock

I have no idea how this game hasn't been added to the list yet! To be fair this forum is purely wiki, in the sense that the users are the ones who make the list, but surely some of you have played DCUO! It is an amazing MMORPG and the console controls are smooth as butter! Too many people these days are dwelling in the overrated games of today's era. World of Warcraft is nowhere near better than Star Wars: The Old Republic, yet WoW is ranked 1st and SWTOR is 151st. Despicable.

U will get addicted

Brilliant game and truly unique! I wanted to try something different and this is it. You really should give it a go. Flying around Metropolis & Gotham is great fun in and of itself and the powers are great. Free to play too!

20 https://www.eveonline.com

Eve Online has a truly engaging universe, where the actions of players are the only real driving force behind the game world. This game is defined by player action- from resource acquisition and manufacturing all the way up to galaxy-spanning wars. And it's not just superficial, either- everything on the market, with the exception of skill books, is player-made.

The wars aren't between the major empires of Eve (well, that's not true- there's faction warfare too, but it's more for newer players), but between player created, run, and populated alliances, made up of smaller (also for player by player) corporations that can also declare war on each other. And then, of course, there's the fact that the galaxy is all a pvp zone- it can happen at any time, any place, although in high sec it's a lot less likely.

Eve Online is a phenomenal game that achieves things that no other MMO is even close to. Is it for everyone? No, it's not. But for anyone who truly wants a sandbox ...more

Eve is a must for anyone who likes a challenge, tech geeks, science geeks, and anyone who is tech savvy. Its not for the your average players who don't like to think, since it has the highest leaning curve then any other MMOG game out, period.

PVP is insane in this game, anybody with leadership skills will love this game. Graphics are the best then any MMOG out. Anybody interested in learning the game look up Skull Lord.

Good game - ElSherlock

I have been playing EvE Online for 6 months now, and it has become the only, and possibly the last game MMORPG, I will play. It's that immersive. In that time, I have earned the skill to proficiently experience maybe 25 of the game and 15 of the universe, New Eden. It's huge. If you are impatient and require instant gratification this game is not for you. EvE requires skill planning and treating your characters like real career pilots; from industrial business-types, care bear role-players, political hacks, corporate thieves, and cold-killers, to scientist-engineers and prospectors, EvE has them all and a niche for everyone with the gumption to be aware of there surroundings at all times. You are never safe unless you are docked and logged off.

21 Ragnarok Online

Ragnarok Online is probably the best game I've ever played. It's quite possible that it will never be topped. What's even better is that it even competes with all games that are made today. I've played WoW and diablo 2. Those are 2 very addicting games but they're only addicting for about a week or so. I've always ALWAYS managed to come back to RO and I've been playing for about 3 years. Without a doubt there is something about the community, competition, and the cuteness about this game that is very attractive and is very enticing. And on top of that it's SUPER SUPER SUPER fun with a group. Solo play is fun but if you have a group it becomes 10x better. Deserves #1 on the list

Nothing yet has managed to top raganrok online, I think the main reason is that this game is plain perfect for team playing...
I've been playing this from the start among lots of other online games and its still far better then any other I know... It has been updated constantly and it still gets updates.

If you consider that this is so high on the list event though its pretty much ancient, it deserves number 1...

The art style of the game looks good - ElSherlock

I love the level of customization that the game has. Many items and classes. It's a game that's managed to keep me interested for years. Don't let the graphics fool you, give it a try!

It's an awesome free game.
My favorite of all free games.
Nice graphics, character details and the skills are nice animated!

TOP!

The only MMORPG that keeps me coming back. Only real issue is the bots. Otherwise, it's a great game.

The bots are no issue anymore, now you can log on anytime, before there was a problem with the bots because it was always crowded in the servers.

But now, its no problem at all, love this game!

Greatest of all time

This game is one of my top favorite games. I'm max level and have the most op class in the game. If you wanted a simple not so laggy mmorpg game to play this is the game that is just for you.

This game Changed my life in so many ways, to truly feel immersed in it is to forget your own reality, from the online gameplay mechanics to the stylish art that accompanies it, this game embodies the meaning of legendary, best game of all time for me period!

It was the very best since the release of the 1.10 version which totally ruined the game.. This game had the ability to make you forget your problems and live in a legendary online world!

This game is the best game ever I have played this game since it came out and always will even though diablo 3 is out now I still prefer this game over that... its 2014 and this is still my favorite game ever

27 Adventure Quest Worlds

More than 10 classes is already enough for it to be called "the best".

Only rpg I ever played lol.

I love how this game is so good it's on the list twice - ass23

An awesome game with many quests and lots of killing monsters, you can get to level 50 and dominate pvp or get different classes and abilities to kill things with.

28 Free Realms

You could be anythong you wanted to be! Adventurer, chef, ninja, cart racer, and so much more!

Free realms is one of the best 3d free mmorpg with a huge world to explore and jobs to do iam surprised to find it in 183 position. I thought it would be in top 50 positions

29 EverQuest 2

Played EQ1 for years and EQ2 for even more years, EQ line of games is about Guilds and People that make up the guilds. This is a very deep game that takes order and strategy to get even close to the top. EQ2 has more high end content than any game I have evern seen or played or know friends have played. This game is not for the "in and out" player it takes work, and I think thats why it never makes it close to #1 on this kinda poles. Easy games usualy make the top of these poles. Great economy! Great game play! Great PvP action(you only get it when you want it)! Great game UI!

GUILD WARS? REALLY? I CANNOT believe Guild Wars made the cut to top ten. Does playing for free make it a better game? I have tried the free 10 hour demo, removed that junk from my hard drive after only 2 and went back to EQ2. WoW is for 8 year olds and IQs below 80. -Bloodflow- Vox Server, EQ2

Played too many online RPG games. Free ones to subscription. I have played EQ1 from release and now EQ2 from release. Still have not found a game that rivals EQ1 at the time and now EQ2. I've really tried to find something that even came close. EQ2 cannot be beat.

Everquest 2 is a great game with gameplay and interaction with friends guilds and more not only that but the graphics are great and soon this year of 2014 everquest next is coming out be sure to check it out you might find it awesomely great!

30 Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

The soundtrack is amazing - ElSherlock

As others stated, not sure why it's so low. It has a good amount to offer currently for a paid sub, no other MMORPG on market compares right now content wise.

Best game out right now!

How is this so low - this game is one of the better ones in my opinion.

Receiving several Internationa l MMORPG Award in Graphics, Characters and Quest Story Line. This game should be in top 5. It has a comprehensive package.. very supportive customer service team and expert software programmers and supports, customize regional services catering to mature players only.. and with 500,000 subscribers worldwide.. proof that this game rated the best

top 5 NOW! this game its EPIC! 3 character for fun! and others 80 to choose, man, this game deserves to be in the top 5

It's games excellent of MMORPG games

Classic - ElSherlock

WHAT? lol 73? wow you guys suck, I have played this game for a little over 7 years, almost 2 months after the game was realeased :D to all your other games can suck it, exept maybe WoW cause that game is pretty fun too.

This game is FREAKING AWESOME. I have played it for about 6 months and I am hooked! This amazing game should at least be in the top 5 if not number one! I would reccomend this to any age group. It's very family friendly with fun characters too!

This game is the most well rounded game on this list HANDS DOWN. It starts simple enough for kids to play. My kid was able to play before he could even read. It evolves into a very complicated proceediing that will challenge the most seasoned hard core gamers. Especially if you PvP. And if THAT'S not enough for you, step out onto the Pet Derby race track. This part of the game involves breeding pets, training them to gain racing skills, and then racing other pets. It's VERY fast. As fast as any racing game out there. Like I said, something for everyone. It really does.

33 City of Heroes/Villians

I've played this game and I have to say it has impressed and inspired mme to try other MMORPGs, although its loosing a lot of players to newer games. I still believe this game should rank in #1 though, but thats just me. Plus you'll hardly ever find bots. I played for 3 months and quit. Then I started a 14 free trial made a new character and got to lvl 17 within 2 weeks. After that I still want more I'm trying to get back on this game as we speak. Well what I was getting at is that I have NEVER had more than 2 bots talk to me in my whole entire life. Now RuneScape is swarming with them.. and yet it ranked #4. I use to play Runescape and I had a lvl 97 and lvl 76. I quit though because Jagex ruined Runescape. Their billions of bot, no wild, no PvP, bad graphics, Boring quest, too many beggers, and its just plain boring. I have never had any problems with CoH/V and I think it should be ranked #1.

CoH/V has tremendous options for players of all ilk, be you like player-vs-player, following a storyline, crafting items, hunting for badges, leveling, character creation variety, action, or just roleplay, this game has got it. Better still, it can be played obsessively or occasionally and still be fun. The only downside has been a drop in the number of players on some servers. Be sure to check which ones are the most active before you create your character on the wrong one. While soloing is okay, teaming is best in this game, so active servers are best.

The Character customization is amazing, along with the powers. Everything is fluid, and the powers are well made and animated. All it needs s a little bit more pvp

A lot of potential here. Character customization is top-notch. Your character will be unique! Plus 'free' travel powers at level 14 allows easy movement to explore at an early level... Instead of waitin' for level 40 and payin' a ton of 'gold'.

There are tons of missions in this game - ElSherlock

I Used to play this game... A lot! I was hooked, I loved this game, it was colourful, funny, fun and so addictive. You'll find yourself on this game for hours. The only thing I disliked about this game was the fact you couldn't type your own messages to players, I understand it's a kids game (which is why I stopped playing) but they should be allowed to talk to other players freely and not be forced to use quick chat. Honestly this game is worth the money every month. (there is a free to play version)

Really fun game to play. If you like Wizard 101 you will like this. Graphics are pretty good but not amazing. This is a Disney Game and is mainly for kids. But some adults play on too. I recommend playing this game.

I've been playing since I was six! Arguably the best RPG I have ever played. It never ends, and is very fun, although you're internet connections to it's servers might screw up

While this game is decent, a lot of items are expensive and the only way to get a lot of money is a 24-hour quest for eye patches, which can get frustrating since a lot of people are always there. A lot of people are also very rude (calling you a noob, telling to kill yourself, etc.). I know online bullying happens a lot, but I see it happen a lot more often in this game. Unless you like farming for money and don't mind a rude fanbase, then I DON'T recommend playing this. Play WoW instead, it's way better. - xSepticGirlx

I played this game for 2+ years, very well done, it's a shame they sold out to a huge conglomerate. I do not know if they will still be competative as they move on through the corprate world and try to make games while also cutting jobs to satisfy some CEO.
I only stopped playing due to real life matters, this is one of the greatest if not the greatest MMORPGs of all time, never to be forgotten

Dark Age of Camelot is to this day, the game that has provided me with the best gaming experience overall. It had excellent PvP, decent PvE and maintained a healthy competitive atmosphere between the three realms. If they would develop Dark Age of Camelot - The Sequel (no, I don't consider Warhammer Online a sequel to DAoC), I would buy it without even hesitating.

Best game ever.

Daoc , one of the worlds best games of all times. The brilliance of 3 realms all at war , and a battleground to go fight ...!! That's total fun fun fun - I have tried other games through out the 5 years of playing . I always ALWAYS go back to DAOC . I only wish EA would re-examine the marketing.If you like PvE this is your game . If you like PvP this is your game.I am at 5 yrs 6 mths and still going.

So I have been playing for almost a year now and...first of all the game does get kinda boring after awhile when you have already checked out all of the new games... And in terms of making games you pretty much NEED to learn Lua,(Robloxes coding language) to make a good game...other then that there are lots of Robux scams (Robux are Robloxes in game currency) so if you get the game the only way to get Robux are either if you buy them or the group leader of the group your in give you Robux...also remember I don't hate the game I'm just getting kinda bored with it...

The best game its a very epic game for kids and teen and adults plus its virtual and you can build your own world or you can battle against other people this is the #1 Game Of all Time and if you didn't play this you're totally a fool of yourself so check the game out now.

Roblox should be number one or two the amount of programming and community integration you would feel as if you it were real life. You can make friends, build and script games in a way no other mmorg will allow you to, and you can create groups and battle between one another in massive raids. It's a whole different community as has all ages on it. It is extremely fun.

I love playing with people, but I find that a lot of people think that they're higher than everyone else. - LemonComputer

Hmm - ElSherlock

Horrible, I mean HORRIBLE. Graphics? HORRIBLE. Game Mechanics HORRIBLE. Everything is HORRIBLE in this game, my suggestion, don't ever, EVER PLAY IT! It is a complete WASTE OF TIME!

Dota 2 is the best - FINN_THE_HUMAN

Why is this not top 5? or at least above LOL

42 Everquest

Don't understand why this game isn't in top ten. It pretty much defined the mmorpgs and was the top one in late 90's and early 2000's. Main problem with game is its constant change that happens. Leave for 6 months come back and the game does not even looks the same. The game today doesn't even look like the original game. Definitely more challenging then wow though. Hated losing exp, got in a lot of fights on game for people getting you killed. Losing hours of exp and having to beg clerics for rezz sucked.

I recently quit playing Everquest after nearly a decade. Back from the beginning EverQuest had a HUGE following, and the numbers have definitely faltered, but if you guys don't give EverQuest the respect that it deserves, you all deserve to rot in hell for taking the new games for granted. Without this ground-breaker (plus Dark Age of Camelot, and Eve-Online *which recently broke into year 11*) a lot of the games you have now like WoW and other huge MMO's wouldn't be what they are.

I can't believe Everquest is not on top 10, it is the MOTHER of all these MMORPGS you see. It was the first mmorpg with 3D and immersive world! I remember the first time I entered Oasis the excitement and the astonishing visuals. On another note, every other mmorpg that came out including wow, daoc or wtv all originate from EQ with modifications to make them better.

First mmo I have played love it and 12 years later still play it 8-10 hours a day and still have more and more and more to do and more goals I can set. Wonderful game.

43 Age of Conan

Underrated for sure. One of the best video games of this genre. It still holds up today. - RogerMcBaloney

Free game, fantastic graphics, great fun...
I really like the way I can control my character's development in skills and feats (and looks) and make him unike. Not to forget the variety of choices regarding tactics and movement in combat. Success in combat depends on the gamers choices in all matters mentioned.
But the game is very addictive, so for me it won't be free for much longer. I want it all.

Not for the kiddies, this mature themed game will give you countless hours of quality entertainment. Great for pro's and casual, group and solo players alike. All quests up to level 22 or so, are voiced adding quality to the game with hopefully more to come. Unlike so many other free to play games, this one is fun to play for all, subscribers just get more inventory space, bank space, class creation options and so on.

Incredibly undermined game. It's very intellectual and actually has a compelling story. Graphics are amongst the best. Dedicated community, just a shame so few people give it a try.

48 Perfect World

Perfect World is so good and beautiful game with virtually unlimited possibilities of upgrading character.

Just good - ElSherlock

Perfect world is simply the most beautiful online game to date. The character customisation system let's you create a perfect copy of anyone and if that perfect someone doesn't exist, you can let your imagination go wild thanks to the unlimited posibilities. It is much more complex than sims 2.
Perfect world invites players to explore and interact with each other. The combat system will not impress from the start, but it is most challenging thanks to the combos and acrobatics that can be used to help later on.
The most stunning thing about the game is the graphics. A perfect world needs perfect graphics and this game has that. It captivates in such a way that you will be itching to explore.
If that isn't enough, there is also the option to fly, which is very usefull to cover distances and even for combat purposses.
You have to see it to believe it. Perfect world is the best game since wow and it's so beautiful, it'll bring tears to your eyes.

The graphics of this game are amazing. It is also really interesting in that during the first 30 levels or so there are many quests and things you can do. Thus you hardly spend any time grinding compared to in other games like Runescape. I have played RS for a long time but only recently started playing PW and has so far really enjoyed playing it.

49 Cabal Online

This game is awesome! The subtitle its revolution of action and they really mean it! It just rock, great fight system. Combo mode what make's game faster and get a kick ass with it. It has spectacular skills, I think the best looking of all online games. I really recommend this game! Just play it and see

Excellent Game. Although it's free and easy to play

Powered by MrHelper The best games online play too free 4EVER

Among the best graphics around. Each class is flexible so that you can customize them to your own combat style, not the usual "follow the lines". With time, the game doesn't get boring, but the action elevates. And all this... FOR FREE!

Best combat system in any rpg. The game also has a very interesting art style and there are so many characters to choose from. - RogerMcBaloney

The combat makes it amazing
