Neverwinter Nights 1.
Yes I know it is quite an old game but I have yet to find a better online fantasy computer game.
In "normal" MMO's like WoW and other similar the whole concept of roleplaying is often not present and communication in-between players is close to nothing.
Maybe some are MUD'ing in text format but I really need to have a graphical representation of what it is I am doing.
If you are looking for the same and perhaps want a Dungeon Master to entertain you and your friends...check this out....
How does the game look?
See this Youtube video:
Although the game is dated...the graphics still hold up and it gives a solid feel altogether. Then who would expect less than a miracle game ahead of its time from the masters at Bioware.
Where do you buy it?
It can be hard to find in a gamestore but you can order a copy on amazon for example. In USA it is often called "Neverwinter Nights Diamond edition" and in europe "Neverwinter Nights Deluxe edition". Theese packages include the two expansions that you will (usually) need to play online.
Do you need anything else?
On most roleplaying world servers they are using the free downloadable Community Expansion Pack. You can find the latest version here:
Which server to play at?
There are a whole lot of servers to choose from. The one featured in the video above is called Arelith Underdark and it is one of the most popular ones. I would recomend you to seek out other servers though as they can be easily to get into and probably have a smaller community that take very well care of newcomers.
I have made a list of such server on my NWN1 X-Fire guild page:
Naturally I would like to recommend my own world server called Genesis Nordock, that also is on that list. If I have some free time I would be glad to show you around myself. Messengers such as X-Fire, Skype and MSN are heavily recommended for this. Send me a PM to get my bearings.
If you don't like any of the servers you can always build your own world!
What does it cost?
The good part also is that there is no monthly fee for playing this game on the online world servers. You just have to have bought the game.
Note that most (read: all) game servers are being provided by enthusiastic (read: fanatic) amateurs. Their services are usually provided "as is".
You will be amazed at how proffessional theese amateur game servers are though!
