Just seeing what everyone here plays and what they recommend. I have recently gotten the itch to play an MMO again.

Rift
Got 6 days of the free trial left. Seems very good, very wow like with a different setting and more "realistic" graphics/artwork. I think it seems awesome how the 4 classes each have 8, Ill call them subclasses, to pick between, and you pick 2 of these. I'm only level 5ish so far, but It's impressive. Just not sure if its that much better than one of the many many F2P options now, or if I should just spend my money in WoW again.

World of Warcraft
I havent played WoW in about a year, had two 85s when I quit. 1 was maxed out in heroic gear, the other was a fresh 85. I really love WoW, just not sure I want to play again. It would be fun leveling a whole new character but then when I get to 85 I know I'd want to raid again which I don't want to spend that much time.

Allods
So far extremely impressed with this game, only have a level 8 but it is the coolest F2P MMO I've played yet.

Age of Conan
The newest F2P MMO I have found. The graphics are very unique and pretty decent, the gameplay is hard to describe. I have only played about 15 minutes of it and the very first boss guy has killed me twice.

Runes of Magic
Have read tons about this being an amazing F2P MMO, however I think most of those writings are older as the graphics are borderline bad. Looks like it has a lot of neat aspects about it. Very limited play on this one as well.

Dungeons and Dragons Online
DDO seems like it would be awesome if you had a group of friends that were going to play it at the same time. However, that NEVER happens in MMOs. Also, the general feel of the game is much like most other F2P MMOs in that it feels slugish and not quiet right.

Champions Online
Actually not a bad game, however, I don't really like the superhero theme. I like flying with my demonic looking "hero".

Forsaken World
I've spent the most time away from this game, was pretty cool when I started it. Just running feels slow, and I think the automatic walk to quest might take some accomplishment feeling out of it.

Lord of the Rings Online
The worst game I've tried so far. I personally thought the graphics were terrible, the gameplay was extremely slugish, and my character seemed to walk in the ground when running. Overall extremely dissapointed with this one.

Vindictus
Haven't played it yet, but it looks good. Just dont know if I really want to play a hack and slash type game where I am constantly beating on the mouse to attack.


Sorry I made this post fairly quickly, waiting on a buddy to get back into vent so we can beat Magicka.

Out of all of them, I prefer Rift. If you find a guild that does things it can be very fun. If you solo then PVP and rift clearing is where it's at, just my opinion. I quit it myself just because I was getting sick of MMO's but my acct. is not over for a few more months so I may go back until SWTOR comes out. GL in whatever you find to do and have fun.

I'm waiting for Star Wars: The Old Republic to come out. Already pre-ordered myself a digital copy. I really feel like there isn't a current released game that truly matches WoW in all of its aspects. Hopefully that will change with Guild Wars 2 and SWTOR.

Personally I think Rift is better than WoW. Many people say its a copy, but they refined things overall that WoW has left in the dust. It feels so WoW like to bring people over without that transition period.

The 4 classes is better than it seems. 8 specs per class is quite enough to boggle your mind for a while.

City of Heroes is going F2P sometime this year. It looks interesting. Also, EQ and EQ2 are both very good games. EVE when I tried it was very good, I am not sure how it is recently though after the cash shop was added. I heard FFXIV is actually getting quite good now. Also, if you like anime inspired 2.5D graphics then there is a new MMO called Wakfu that is being published by Square Enix and developed by the same studio that did Dofus. Wakfu is currently in closed beta and it is extremely hard to get a key, so good luck if you want to try it out.

If you can handle pvp, Aion is a lot of fun, but don't play it if you're easily frustrated.
