...which one would it be and why?

I've played wow for years and tried rift beta. They are both good but I just dont know which one I should play, as I dont want to pay for both of them..

Between the two you named... I would probably go with WoW, but I used to play it so I'm biased. However, from what I have seen of it recently it seems very watered down... at least from what it used to be.

Have you thought about EVE? If I ever got back into mmos thats probably what I would paly. A friend of mine just started playing it, and from what he has told me about it, it seems pretty awesome. The size, scope, and level of complexity seem incredible.

WoW, just because RIFT hasn't been around long enough to form the same kind of opinion. I liked Age of Conan for a minute; but I'm not jumping in an unproven game again

I'll give it a few months before I try it.

WoW.

My top 3 MMO/RPG's
1. Kal Online (totally free)
2. League of Legends (totally free)
3. Allods (again, totally free)


I would recommend you play Kal Online

League of Legends is not a mmo. A lot of people call it a action rpg, but its hardly even that either. The best way to classify it is part of the new 'arena' genre started by DotA.

I voted rift, WoW has already hit its peak. Rift though, if it really takes off, has so much potential to be the next WoW as far as popularity goes
