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.

Legion and battle for azeroth are so cool!

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

Make no mistake, the main reason I am voting this up is because.

1. I have never played it.

2. At least its not World of Warcraft, which not only was a big letdown for me, but its following expansions destroyed whatever potential it could, and should have had.

3. It has a pretty awesome name, Ill give this that much.

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've played runescape on and off since 2007 when I was 9. I was never really a good player then. Recently I picked it back up and got my first skillscape in hunter and got 100+ combat. And It feels awesome to be one of those players I looked up to as a kid. Best game ever

4 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

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

It has the acronym DOMO

5 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

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

This game sucks,and it isn't even mmorpg

6 Star Wars: The Old Republic

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).

Of course this crap somehow always makes the list

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!

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

It's just as good as World of Warcraft and there's no monthly fee. Plus I personally enjoyed it more than GW2

8 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

The best mmorpg out there, million of people from all world play every day. It's more than 12 years and still very popular, updated... After first month of playing you will see, the best mmorpg

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

I've barely touched into MapleStory every other year and I've seen this game grow, I'm planning out on trying it officially today and I believe a lot of you should too

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

This game is amazing and set a lot of standards for MMORPGs, from music to graphics, to player interfacing. Plus one of the very very few games that is truly cross platform.

The Contenders

11 Guild Wars 2

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

Amazing graphics, Amazing gameplay, Awesome objectives and Amazing events. For me at least, this tops WOW and SWTOR combined. But it comes down to opinion. haven't played in a while, But my Level 80 Elementalist and Everything else still has a place in my heart.

12 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

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

Even though it is complicated that just makes it to where their is always something to new learn.

13 Neverwinter

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.

Neverwinter is the best I find this game's combat amazing but the storyline can get repetitive

This game has one of the best character creation systems I have ever seen

Best game ever I played

14 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

Skyrim is fifty times better

15 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

Dam you to hell Sony for ruining this game!

16 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.

Pros: Good gameplay, PvE-wise it's not bad, world PvP is the best ever
Cons: To get good PvP gear you're forced to play half the day every day, not worth it...

17 Silkroad Online

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!

I love silkroad online < this game is so nice for play and sever GM and GA are always for us! >

18 Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

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.

19 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.

Tried a lot of MMO but always seem to keep coming back to EQ2

20 EVE Online

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.

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.

LOVE THIS GAME.

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...

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!

One of the best & Classic MMORPG... Good Anime Style Graphics(2.5D Graphic Games are Always Beautiful) & best Music..People who play'd between 2002- 2012 will know the Value of this Game.

For me,This Game is about the excitement,the exploration, the Friends, The PVP, Sitting & Chatting, The peaceful Times..
1000 MMORPG's may come & go but not 1 will give the Same Feeling RO Gives...Not one

22 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

COH was my first venture into mmorpg gaming. I loved the ability to totally customize my avatar, from appearance to powers. The community was outstanding as evidenced by their efforts still today to bring COH back. A perfect example of a game gone too soon.

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

I love to play this game... There are many 4 wonderful jobs like magician, arche, thief and warrior... Each of the are divided into 2 other jobs... This game can make new friends and can be married... The clothes are just so cute and the skills in the game are do awesome! If you want to know more go ahead and play the game... I know you won't regret it!
Vote for Dragonica people! #1

I play this game a lot and it's so cool, graphics and all, even the characters are cute! And it was the first mmorpg I played

So Good at I can die

24 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.

Everquest is my favorite MMO. I played it from its release until EQ2 was released and then because I was so disappointed with the way they changed mobs in EQ2 so some are for solo and others are for groups and it just destroyed the immersive RPG atmosphere that was in EQ that I quit playing EQ games. EQ is better than EQ2 as far as immersion and atmosphere goes. Daybreak runs EQ now and I'm considering starting the game all over again. =) The graphics may be dated but other than that the game has no rival in 2017. It's the best MMO ever made.

25 DC Universe Online

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.

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!

Like reading comics? How about being yourself a superhero of comic stories. Not being batman or superman. Create your own superhero and feel like you are saving the world with your hands. Man... That just awesome. And the only MMORPG that offers you that is DC Universe Online. Enjoy!

This game is great, be your own comic hero and fly around Gotham and metropolis as much as you want, definitely a must play

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

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.

Pay-to-win. Members get better and earlier enhancements and by buying boosts you can save yourself time.

It would be better if would be like in 15 or 14 because its simple and kinda hard to get things too

Awesome game, I played it for the whole summer vacation nonstop

28 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.

Most people are unaware that during 2010-2011, this was WoW's biggest competition. Recently, the developers who cared about the game broke off, took the license with them, and made their own company, which means it's regaining a developer team that cares about their product

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.

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.

Worst game ever made in history! if you're looking for a new game do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME! it disgusts me how much they try to rob you blind to get anything decent, the drop rates for anything you want are ridiculously horrible. and the staff should all be shot. I never made it to max level because my account was muted for 10 years for saying poop and cancelled my subscription instantly. ridiculous!

34 Mabinogi

Mabinogi is the best free MMO out there, and probably the best MMO I've ever played. I couldn't get into WOW, I grew out of Runescape, Guild Wars got tedious, and it was hard for me to slog through the total mess that is Maple Story.

The core mechanics are extremely fun and easy to pick up, there are a large volume of activities to undertake, and the graphics are very good for a free game, with finely drawn portraits. It's also just a joy to play, and the grinding is nearly non-existant, though some of the fetch quests are irritating.

Some people say, " COMPLICATED, " after playing Mabinogi for like 3 minutes, but it's actually a very simple game. The point and click interface is pristine and it never feels cluttered. The variety of skills that you can learn range from just combat mastery to various life skills, which are all VERY, VERY FUN to use. And with Generation 1 and the cash shops, tons of new possibilities have opened up.

There are so many ...more - TheAI

I haven't played a lot of MMOs, but of the ones I've played, Mabinogi is a very nice game-- Unique graphic style, great music, HUGE amount of content, enjoyable characters and interesting storyline. The only problems I have are that having to move around a lot can get tedious (especially since there's time constraint on your rides), the dungeons can get pretty tough and the character creation could be better. But overall, I highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for a game to play just for fun.

One thing for sure, it's free. The world of Mabinogi is fascinating since it has content that aren't found in other games because it is based off of a bit of Irish mythology and also has content relating to Shakespeare and other things as well. The story in Mabinogi is also more in depth than what you would find in other games.

Used to have a perfect community, and there are SO many things to do...
It's pretty dead now though.

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

1. Cool item and event
2. Can play on phone, facebook and download to computer

36 Dark Age of Camelot

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.

This MMO is literally the bar in which any fantasy PvP, particularly mass warfare, is measured against. Now a 15 yr old game, and there hasn't been a notable example of another MMO that did it better. A perfect storm of breath of options, imperfect balance, and socialization not only made a great PvP game, but a social experience as well.

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

I bear horrible news for all of you. I don't know how to say it but Roblox...is the worst piece of crap I've ever seen.
It is a lego-type game that is becoming less fair to its free players as time passes. A special membership know as builders club or because of the players (also know as robloxians) is gaining more benefits so the company can gain more money. Such as them being able to purchase certain items that free-members can't. You have the ability to create a game for people to play. A free-model system was invented that lets you take designs from other people who choose to give it to you, and apparently using these makes you a noob. Usually 7-12 year olds play this, but it's starting to attract 13-even 20 year olds. Most of the people horribly misuse the word noob, thinking it means idiot or loser.

A lot of the players are completely stupid and call anyone that has the ability to over-power them "hackers".
this is a typical argument on roblox

Addicting... Fun... nice graphics and super awesome
although people get bored at making money

It is very exiting upgrading weapons and fun level up your guy. And its cool if you have a lot of money

Nice game and I think it's one of the games that will NEVER die.

But it has a lot of donators so if you want to be good you must give some money..

God I missed this game so much This deserves to be higher on the list People who watched Cartoon Network since 90 s wanted their own version of WoW. - Aguythatpeopleignores

It is a very awesome game you make a charactor do missions
And have a lot of fun playing

48 Knight Online World

This game is truly amazing. The best part of the PvP is that there is a weekly war between the two sides where hundreds of players crash on a battle field and the winner then teleports to the enemy homeland to invade. Be warned though, this is the most hardcore MMO I've played. You could make 10 level 80s on WoW before maxing one character on KO. I left because the time investment required was too much for me. Even though I've left, I had a great time with KO. Try it.

Knight online simplifies most of MMORPG aspects but has the best PVP system of all. Imagine, you are LEVEL 1, but there are already pvp events you can enjoy! Even now is 2012 but this game is still not too old, people who love to pvp and show off some skills instead of easily spamming some buttons like in all other games enjoy KO the most.

This game rocks, it is one of the best online game ever. This game is awesome if you didn't play this game you are losing don't wait and play the game you are gonna be

It's the best

This game is epic! 9 Clans 4 Roles, lots of players, lightfoot!
It's kinda simple, but really addicting. I always come back to play it after other games, It's different from other games.

Nice graphics, runs well on my 1.66ghz laptop. It's based heavily on Chinese history/mythology so the only race selection is human. You can duel but only one map has true pvp so you can quest in safety for the most part. So far I've had at least one quest per level which breaks up the grind very nicely.

9 dragons is the best martial arts game:-D. I play that game 1 yer

One of the best games EVER! Simply my favorite Martial arts MMORPG I have every played, brings you back no matter what and is VERY addicting! You can never have enough of this game, worth a shot!
