MMORPG for 2

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I was looking for some opinions on a good mmorpg for my girl and I to play.

I played SWG when it first came out that was my first rpg and loved it in the begining.

Then I played EQ2 for a while and that was fun.

Then the two of us played Wow for about a year and quit before the WOTLK.

We had a pretty good time at wow and are considering playing that again but I wondered if anything else that was out was worth a shot or if anyone thought anything amazing was about to come out and worth waiting for?


Thanks.

I have played Final Fantasy XI for about 4-5 years. It is more of a team-oriented game though. It isn't as 'fast paced' or 'soloable' like WoW.

They have introduced a LOT of updates that help on these fronts though, you might want to check it out.

It will be easier since you two will be playing together a lot, or if you know anyone that plays.


I think they are talking about releasing a new Final Fantasy MMORPG, but haven't read anything on it yet.


If you decide to go with FFXI11, send me a message and I can get you a world pass to join the server i am on. Although I do not play much these days

Have you tried Runescape?

It's easy, you don't have to train constantly to enjoy the game.
It has good lore.
It's cheap.
It's highly scalable.
It's got alot of players and the good part is you aren't forced to work with them if you don't want to.

My girlfriend and I both played LoTRO online which is really good if you're into PvE, the PvP is non-existant in it really.

Currently we're playing Age of Conan which is fun...if you can find anyone else on your server; that should be fixed though with the upcoming server merges.

there's this free one i've seen advertised here and there, can't remember the name.

but nifty feature is that you can create in-game "soulmates" with other players and you get bonuses from being together in the field.

No, it's not, because people have to get so addicted to it that they kill themselves for it to be good.
