I decided to buy a new pc game. I'm thinking of a MMORPG, but I'd be happy to here any of your suggestions on what you think is fun, and worth getting. I also tend to enjoy online games more. If the game pays monthly, I wouldn't want it to be any more then $15.00 per month.
Any suggestions would be great. Some of the following are games that I'm considering getting, so it'd be great if you could tell your opinion a with them as well.
City of Heros/Villans
Dungeons and Dragons Online
Final Fantasy XI
World of Warcraft
Dark Age of Camelot
Note: I already have Guild Wars: Factions, Counterstrike: Source, and Warcraft III and the Frozen Throne.
So what are your thoughts; opinions?
Auto Assault-No. It has way to much to deal with right now. Wait a few years and maybe (it if it works) there will be a better driving MMO.
City of Heros/Villans-With every patch it seems to get worse. I quit.
Dungeons and Dragons Online-I hear good things.
EVE Online-It's a pretty serious one. Judging from the games you have, maybe not the best idea.
EverQuest-LOL! No. At least, not the first one. I hear good things about the second one...
If your comp can run the damn thing that is.
Final Fantasy XI- I really want to play this. I heard the last expansion restored things to the way they were before the expansion before it, except then it was still a ridiculous excersize in level grinding.
Lineage 2- I love it. It's very PVP centered though and is rife with farmers.
Starwars: Galaxies- I laugh at this. I was really interested at first, all my friends got it (who are WAY more SW fans tan I) and then they stopped playing. It sucked. No.
World of Warcraft-Easiest. MMO. Ever. That's what makes it so much fun.
Dark Age of Camelot- I hear good things. I also hear it's losing out to other MMO's.
Same goes for L2 though.
So, WoW or DnD. I'd go for WoW if you want something that is gaurenteed not to suck, DnD if you would like a real MMO (but might have problems as it's new).
Your friendly neighborhood (aspiring) game journalist,

Buy more warhammer thats what i say, just kidding really.
on the games area D&D online looks very intersting to play, EvE online is ment to be really good to if your in to being like a rogue trader in your starship kind of game.
But i cant really play many games as it is, i have a crappy pc at the moment.
I am not really buying any games myself these days i am just gonna wait for Warhammer: Mark of Chaos and Supreme Commander(basically the 2nd TA game) which i am really am looking forward to play.
I suppose it depends on how desperate you are to begin a new mmorpg.
Here's a decent looking title worth looking at once it comes online, it's called Tabula Rasa and is being created by the guys that created Ultima Online...link: http://www.gamespot.com/pc/rpg/tabularasa/index.html
If you really can't wait I suggest Everquest 2. It is fun and has great depth and character development. The graphics are awesome and the support is great.
WOW is good but it got old for me really quickly.
I think I'm gonna gow ith FFXI or WoW. I'm leaning towards FFXI, though, because its more cheap and most people say that WoW can get boring after awhile.
I'd just like to chime in again.
FFXI is considered one of the biggest level grinds around. AKA, you work and work and work to level once, and then you do it all over again, your entire career. Essentially, it's a #$%^& to level.
WoWs leveling system is MUCH more lax. AKA, you work some, level, work some more, level, etc. It is SO easy to max level in WoW. This is why it gets boring. You either notice how quickly you are leveling and that all the missions are sort of the same thing (a problem often found in CoH) and then you hit the max level and then...you raid. You raid some more.
You spend your entire level 60 life Raiding.
Unless you PvP.
In which case you raid anyway so you have better stuff to kill the other guy who didn't raid as much as you.
FFXI is boring in a way.
WoW is boring in a way.
This is why I generally don't play these games anymore.

Well, I ended up getting WoW because Walmart nor Target had FFXI. It's installing atm (at the moment).
Just for future reference, or for anyone thinking about it - do NOT get galaxies. The latest update has damn near totally nerfed it. I'm a HUGE star wars fan but I couldn't bear it - it's laggy, the new update has totally destroyed the game system and the whole thing is just a painful experience. Don't even bother.
Sad thing was, it used to be pretty awesome. Unfortunately, now more and more players are dropping out of it - once-bustling areas are now deserted. Maybe in the next upgrade they'll make it better...I can only hope, then maybe I'll get back into it.
Good choice on the WoW though. I've given that a few goes, and it seems to be a pretty solid game. Hope you enjoy it!
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.
"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
WoW would have been my recommendation too, yes it is easy to level and getting anywhere in the pvp system is a full time job, but it is probably the most fun of the lot (until you hit level 60 that is, then you start to lose all sense of achievement in doing anything). I just recently quit because I was just spending far too much time playing it rather than any of the flaws that it had (most MMO's have far more problems with them).
I always was interested in galaxies but kept hearing too many bad things about it, a Star wars MMORPG should be a phenomenal game, its a real shame.
Always been interested in EVE too, it doesn't have much of a high profile, but it still seems to keep picking up awards and I hear heaps of good feedback about it, though its supposed to be a real mission to play to start with.
