Reccomend me a good rpg?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

I've started to get really bored of grinding levels on every FPS game on the 360.... I've wanted to get back into RPGs for a while now, but never had the time to do it.

Can someone recommend me a good mmorpg? I prefer the following:

Free to play; I don't really feel like paying silly monthly fees (ala World of Warcraft.... spent way too much of my life on that game)

I prefer quality of content over quantity... I hated the WoW type of gameplay where it was endless repeats of the same thing with different names.... I would prefer a good back-story, etc.

High-end graphics are not a must, as I said before I am very quality-driven and not so big on the flashiness, if that makes any sense smile.gif

Thanks all!

Ummmm, isnt that all MMO's? tongue.gif

If you want something totally different you could try eve online, although I didnt like it. Best free one out there IMO is Guild Wars.

Last Chaos is a good Free MMO.

Runescape is Simple and very time consuming.

Guild Wars was very nice, but not free. xD
All you need to do is pay once for the game. GW2 will be out soon I believe.

I played both WoW and GW, but WoW was a better experience. There's so much more to do. If you didn't like WoW, you probably won't like GW.

I played Guild Wars as well as WoW for a long time.... I enjoyed Guild Wars a lot more to be honest and have thought about going back, I was just looking for something fresh smile.gif

I tried out Eve for a few months... I couldn't get into it. I love the economy in that game, but to be honest the extremely steep learning curve and generally snobby playerbase just ruined it for me. I couldn't figure it out, and couldn't get people to help smile.gif

seems like you would want a real rpg rather than an mmo.

if so, the witcher 2 just came out and is epic.

You made it sound like you wanted a single player rpg not an mmo from your post, so ill agree that Witcher 2 is an amazing game that recently came out.

*edit* you did actually say mmorpg so im a nub lol. There is a free mmo that came out recently spiral knights, you could have a look into that
