First of all, my apologies for making another one of these... its just so hard to choose though.

I mostly played Maplestory and Diablo 2 until a year ago, then stopped MMOing... Now I want to start again with my cousinI loved Maplestory until they started to give out too many events and made you need to use IRL cash... Diablo 2 was fun but I got bored of it...

I like quests and playing with another player (teamplay, ie: with my cousin). I also like a good "economy". Graphics isn't that important, gameplay is though.

What do you suggest me?

almost all MMOs are money traps now the saying

Free to Play

Pay to Win

has never been more true, Theres also the fact that to get anywhere or do anything your pretty much forced to spend money as well.. You could look into private servers of Ragnarok or w.e as thats a fairly fun game and private servers tend to be less cash mongering eitherway theres a few sites out there with huge MMO lists i suggest you start there and start filtering what you enjoy most in an MMO and go from there. There is simply to many choices and in this case user opinion is only that opinion in MMOs u gotta try it before u decide usually

yea but TPUs croud usually have closer opinions to my likings lol

I don't want to be the best at the game though, as long as it doesn't really force you to pay, and you aren't 1000x worse than people who paid 25$, I'm fine with it

My strategy was to download and try whichever games you guys would suggest lol

Dungeons and Dragons Online actually isn't too shabby.

well it depends what your looking for i WAS playing Kingdom Heroes by aeria games as it has PVE and PVP channels u can switch to on the fly and 3 nations to pick from with nation wars ie 1v1v1 thats server wide on certain days of the week it was fun but to be good you have to pay that said usually with teamwork you can beat the Item mall users

that said.. gold can be traded for item mall cash
multi clienting is allowed currently
and it has an AFK lvling function with soldiers go check it out its by aeria games its more pvp oriented and the grind is easy but boss hunting is where its at and pvp as well

Dungeons and Dragons Online is free to play. Lord of the Rings Online, which is developed by Turbine also, is currently in beta for a free version. Guild Wars is great, but it is only free once you pay for the game and expansions. The trilogy pack is only $20 at Gamestop.

I forgot to say it can't be too demanding on hardware, since I'd like to play with my cousin and he has a basic core duo, 1gb DDR2 RAM and some integrated intel

will DDO or Kingdom Heroes be playable on lowest settings?

You can play Anarchy Online with restrictions http://www.anarchy-online.com . I did not play it take a look and if you like try it. I dont have any idea about economy but it has been loved for its gameplay .
Another option is Guild wars 2 when released ,it will have "buy game and play online free" model =Youll buy box and will play online without any payment .

Warhammer Online has an endless trial to level 10 with no restrictions other than that. The level 10 PvP bracket is supposed to be pretty kickin' from what I hear too.

Also, Allods Online was alright when I played the beta, looked good. Has a microtransaction thing going on though.

yep...1-10 are the most fun lvls to play anyway. tier 1 pvp is also better than later tiers. don't buy the game because beyond tier 1, the game sucks.

DDO and Runes of Magic are decent, but honestly one of my favorite mmo's still is Guild Wars, buy the whole series once, play it for free and enjoy. Though I haven't played an MMO in a while and I'm sure GW's user-base is dropping off...last I heard it was still a fairly popular game.

I played a game called Requiem: Bloodymare. definitely not taxing, with my 7800GTX 256mb i ran it maxed, 4xAA(max AA for 7800GTX), 16x anistrophy @ 1680x1050 n never saw a dip in framerate. It's alot like WoW, mechanics wise, but is also quite different with character lvl'ing n whatnot which i liked. the Pvp is fun and you can join as group(ur cous)or by urselves. There were only 3 servers/worlds when i played, 2 normal with pvp arena's, then the PvP world. I played on the normal which wasn't too populated, but i heard the pvp is packed supposedly.

Minor learning curve, economy is player driven. item variation when i played wasn't huge but adequate and has probly increase since the yr-2yrs ago i played.
ign images

EDIT: they actually just recently came out with an Expansion(free as well)...i may get back into it myself after reading up on teh changes. HELLs yea :). it's finally differentiated from WoW and usual MMORPG lvling style. You no long have to go find a trainer to learn, you just get you spread your points from lvl'ing along a skill tree or something. I've been wanting this in a game for a while besides runescape.

MMO's are evil. I've played Knight Online sometime ago and even though i know it was no 1A title, you play it for a month or two and when you look back, you haven't achieved anything. You are just grinding monsters most of the time, level up and sell stuff. And repeat the whole thing.
Casual multi games are much better as far as i'm concerned.

as far as free MMOs go, runes of magic/anarchy online have been my favs. both can get expensive to play in the later levels but offer a fair amount of free gameplay. In the end though you are probably better off with a p2p mmo as they are typically maintained better and less expensive in the long run/higher levels. FFXIV is out next month it should be worth a go.

haha, well, when people start playing Maplestory, they thought it was just about grinding selling etc...but with a few friends and a little bit of wits, you can have fun xD ie: you could "Merchant" and make so much money, finding something dirt cheap that sells fast at a bit more for example, or one big profit that sells slow.

There were the party quests and the Bosses too, and its a very social game... just went to ruins after all the new shit. and its always fun playing with a friend :)


One thing about them is that they are addicting :(



SO I have alot on my plate now :) Thanks again guys! hopefully I can try a few today, since its raining and I already went to the beach when it was raining yesterday and don't feel like it today lol
