First MMORPG

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I'm looking to break back into PC gaming after a couple years off... Last game I actually played on computer was the first in the battlefield series... I would like to start up a MMORPG or a really good RPG but have no idea what to start. Seems that there are very mixed reviews on all MMO's out there and I don't want to waste money/time trying out a bunch of poor games... Any suggestions for a start? Thanks everyone in advance!! +REP for helps

I guess I'll get the obvious out of the way.. World of Warcraft.

Do you play and do you like it? I read an entire thread of page after page of people saying they quit after 15 min... So I am hesitant

Try RIFT, beta event coming up (15th) and it's releasing on the 1st of march, feb 24th if you pre-order. www.riftgame.com

Me and a bunch of friends are leaving WoW after years of playing for this game, may not be your cup of tea but with a beta coming tomorrow it's worth a try. sign up for the beta on their site.

You may want to give Guild Wars a try and see if you like that considering they are releasing Guild Wars 2 soon.

I found Guild Wars to be my favorite MMO I've played.

I played WoW through and through since it was in beta and its a good starter MMO if you are looking to join to scene. However, I just quit after the first few weeks of Cataclysm because I'm just not into MMOs anymore. If you are looking for a basic MMO to learn how ALL the MMO communities work, play a trial of WoW. 90% of MMOs that have come out in the past 5 years are straight up clones, just different art and engines.

How does the Rift demo work? You sign up and they will send me an invite tomorrow, but is it only good for a couple days or something?

They give out free passes/trails all the time, its worth a try. It's the biggest MMORPG for a reason. I have not personally played it, but I have heard good things. The only MMO I have experience with is City of Heroes/ City of Villains, which I loved but it is an older game so I don't know how active it still is or not.

Its in closed beta right now, you might get in or you might not. Your chances increase if you have a VIP pass.

Edit: Looks like its gone into open beta, thanks for the link Bob.

It is going to be an open beta tomorrow so you just sign up on the site tomorrow at http://www.riftgame.com/en/ and it will last until for a week or two I would assume.
