Hey guys, I've been trying to find a new online game to play. I started with EQ1 in '99 and played a bunch since then including WoW, EQ2, CoH, Eve Online, Aion, LoTRO, and am currently playing Perfect World International. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions cause I haven't found any really good games with balanced PvE content, good class balancing, and plenty of exploration with inventive story lines and some good epic quests. My current hope is for Star Wars the Old Republic from Bioware but right now I'm looking at trying Xbox Live even though I am not a big first person shooter player so any suggestions would be awesome!

I'm playing Aion right now- In the same boat as far as Old Republic. Final Fantasy XIV is... interesting, but I can't support Square MMO's any longer if they're going to forget to add an auto sort on a game I'm paying for!!!! But I digress. Since you like Perfect World, I am going to suggest Vindictus and Dungeon Fighter Online (DFO) to you. Both are really great games, big in Korea, and they have been updating pretty regularly. Vindictus is like Dynasty Warriors and DFO is like Streets of Rage, you can use a controller with both!

In the same line as Vindictus, DCU sort of feels the same way to me. But that's more if you're into comic books obviously.

I'm playign aion right now. which i think is decent until TERA gets released. There's a few P2P MMo's coming out soon you may want to check out. Rift- supposedly good game play ive heard but the graphics are areal turn off. Tera- Supposed to be the new "True action based" Graphics are amazing, and itll become a time where we cans ee what clerics can aim and who just fails! :3 As for currently our MMO's Jade Dynasty is a perfect world game, also Forsaken world will becoming to Open beta in spring. also a perfect world game. :) Aika online is Decent if you can handle the grind.

I tried Aion when it first came out and really had hopes for the game but there have been some major issues, particularly with the bots, gold farmers controlling all server economies, the huge grind, lag issues with the pvp, and lack of PvE drops kind of ruined everything for me which was sad since it had great class balancing and beautiful graphics and animations. I know a lot of the issues came from it being an Asian design but a lot of the issues could have been solved with some patches to get rid of bots and gold farmers and increasing drop rates. I spent 4 days grinding for a single pet spell, only reason I didn't continue was because my legion got sick of it and bought the spell for me eventually lol. Perfect World is pretty cool but I dislike how they push you to buy gold with cash to really be able to move forward in the game and I read that EQ2's new free to play plan is a giant scam that requires more money than perfect world does to buy stuff. My friend and I are looking at playing Forsaken World though, at least until Star Wars the Old Republic comes out, when I plan to drag my friends over to play kicking and screaming, anyone have an idea when that will be releasing? I read it was meant to be spring of 2011 but since we're getting into Spring of 2011 in a few months and still no release date last I checked.

I played that at a friend's house actually. It may have been the most brilliant MMO I've ever played. Sadly though, I can't afford to shell out the cash for it right now. Eventually though!

Lineage 2 is pretty good and apparently went F2P at some point which I didn't notice....

I'd recommend that, or if you can afford to pick them up, Guild Wars. You just have to buy the games then then the actual game has no subscription fee to pay.

There is also Megaten: http://megaten.aeriagames.com/

Most of the games made by Aeria are pretty nice to play.


There is also the option of Dragon Saga, though it used to go by Dragonica and was ran by THQ.
http://playdragonsaga.com/

Warp Portal, the people who run it now also carry a bunch of good games.

Then a couple other good carriers of free MMOs are:

GPotato: http://www.gpotato.com/
OgPlanet: http://www.ogplanet.com/main.og

If you're actually interested in Pay to Play games, I would agree with other people and go with SW:TOR or WoW dependent on your tastes.

If you anyone decides to start WoW, let me know and I can send recruitment links to people...
Players with linked accounts get the benefits of faster levelling and can summon the linked people to one another... Also, as the refferer, I could finally get my X-53 Touring Rocket that I've been trying to get for like, FOREVER....)

I have a huge list of good MMOs somewhere that is a mix of F2P and Pay to Play games. If I find it, I'll post it...

Look into The Secret World. It will fulfill most all of your request. Good PvE gameplay. No need to balance classes, as there are none. Inventive storyline. The entire game is based on exploration. The game is currently in Beta and should be released within the next month or so... www.thesecretworld.com

FYI, encase you're interested, auto sort was added. They also added an item look up for the market wards.

Everyone should be keeping an eye on Guild Wars 2 I say! Participated in the beta events and it's pretty boss so far. Comes out August 28th.
