    SWG, WoW + TBC & GW2
  • jdlamson75jdlamson75 Jacksonville, FLPosts: 984Member Uncommon

    Funny how the two games that, for me, were completely worth the money I spent were games I joined after they'd been established:  WoW and Darkfall.

     

    I'm not sure how long WoW was out before I started playing, but the guild I joined had only a couple of 60s, there were a bunch of people LFG UBRS all the time, and TBC was a fairly long ways off; that said, it sure as hell wasn't day, week, or month 1.  I enjoyed myself in WoW, going from a super casual player to raider in the span of a year, and played the game for a good 4 or so years.  Definitely worth the money I spent.

     

    Darkfall...I tried for a couple of weeks to get in, but it was nigh impossible, so I gave up.  Two or three months in, I decidd to give it another shot.  Though I've unsubbed several times for months at a time, I've consistently gone back to the game over the past 3+ years.  I'm not a hardcore PvPer, so that's not what drew me back in.  Again, it was the people with whom I played.

     

    I'm not upset that I spent money on all the other games I've played, but had I not spent the money...well, it probably would have just gone to beer and bacon.

    For me:

    The WoW free trial (played two hours and said "this sucks")

    City of Villains

    EVE

    Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided.

     

    Bad buys:

    Warhammer Online (played two days and said, "this sucks," and paid $50 for the privilege)

    Star Wars Galaxies: Rage of the Wookiees (came with the CU, which really upset the game for me)

    Seed (great concept, was waiting for it to get better, but it never really did...and then it closed in two months)

    Everquest and Vanguard.  Everquest mostly though, I played that game for a long time. Still pop in and mess around once in a while.

    image how can doac can be a wow clone when the game was relaese before? your credibility goes right in the sewer with this comment...

    For the op almost all of them.

    AO

    FFXI

    WOW

    GW1

    Vanguard

    Lord of the rings

    AOC

    FFXVI

    FFXI, AO and WOW are those i played the most and enjoy for the price (in that order), the others where still worth the price for the time i played them. Still i would love a game like AO but in modern days.

    People who claim everything is a wow clone drive me up a wall for being so ignorant. At least call it an EQ1 clone, since WoW is a blatent clone of Everquest 1 with many of its extra features ripped from other games.  Even then your basically comparing apples to oranges and not making much sense of it.

     

    Now old school Dungeons and Dragons, that obviously has to be a WoW clone with his logic...

    yea i agree, seems like people have nothing else better to do.  By saying all these game are a clone of wow, well exactly what you said, WOW HAS DONE THE SAME THING ALSO.

  • Vlhad77Vlhad77 Mountain Home, ARPosts: 139Member Uncommon

    anyway the games i feel that i enjoyed the most and glad i spent the money on is:

    SWG,DAOC, EQOA, Everquest EQ2, Star Trek Online (lifetime account) , RIFT, FallenEarth, and soon to be FireFall.

     

    games i wasted my money on and wish i can have it back:

    WoW, SWTOR,FFXI, WAR, AION, TERA, Vanguard, AOC, GW2

  • JuhdoJuhdo indianapolis, INPosts: 5Member

    Games worth the money

    EQ1 - played 7 years, and still think it had one of the best player communities I've ran across

    WoW - 7 years off and on, recent changes put me off to it and tired of the L2P community

    EQ2 - 2 years until most of my friends left

    GW2 - so far, at least its more hours of play than most new age console RPGs

    Vanguard (pre F2P) - played a year

    Rift - at least got 60 hours outta it

     

    Games not worth the money

    DAoC - didn't hold my interest

    AoC - just wasn't my bag

    GW1 - a couple weeks of enjoyment then kinda strayed away

    LotRO - again didn't hold my interest

     

    Know I'm forgetting some but if so, they weren't worth the money

    SWG
    WoW
    Rift

  • eye_meye_m Notta Chance, ABPosts: 3,133Member Uncommon
    all the mmo's I've played were worth the money I put into them. The ones that apparantly were not worth it, were WoW, Rift, TERA, TSW, EVE, Black Prophecy, (those were the mmo's I tried and didn't like enough to pay for )

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    Proberbly like the rest of you I've had my fingers burnt by a few mmos ToR and Vanguard spring to mind but others have been worth the price paid .

    For me they are

    WoW even though its trash now I had 4 years solid playing it and have since returned for maybe a month or two each year . Those orginal 4 years were proberbly the best I've spent in any mmo . I just wish it had kept up the quality and challenge it once offered .

    Lotro brought a couple of months after release and got a life times subscription for half price about a year later on a welcome back week

    Rift which has proven to be a lot of fun for me . I guess not everyones cup of tea but for me its mmo Nirvana.

    Guild Wars 2 great value given its buy to play can see myself playing this one casually for years to come .

      

    Actually would be easier for me to list games that were not worth any money. I.e. there are many games I have lost completely my interest to play, War, Aoc, CO, ... that were worth every cent. Until lasted.

    Among rare games that were big mistake to buy ... TR, that game in old Rome, forgot name, but have box somewhere, FF IV, ...

    Asheron's Call  by far gave me the most fun for the money,  so many great memories, such a fun sandbox game.
  • XasapisXasapis VolosPosts: 5,561Member Uncommon

    I can't think of an mmorpg I bought that didn't worth the money I gave for it. Even for the mmorpgs that I abandoned after the first month was over, I had fun with and was worth the money spent.

    I spent different amount of time in different mmorpgs, but that's a different issue.

     

    I can name single player titles that I've bought and haven't played enough or end up disliking so much I abandoned. Not mmorpgs though. And even in those cases, it was sometimes a matter of timing than the actual quality of the game itself.

  • AdamantineAdamantine NowherePosts: 3,514Member

    Definitely Vanguard. Started in the month of release and kept playing until today with a pause. Tons of content, lots of wonderfully designed classes, just the ideal classic fantasy game. Sadly no PvP, no players and no devs. Oh well.

    Definitely not Guild Wars, I was bored out of my mind after a very short time (3 days ? A week ? Dont remember). Just 8 abilities is just extremely boring. And PvP feels pointless when there is nothing for real to fight about.

    Kind of undecided about Lineage 2. Had a blast with it, actually. Enjoyed it much more than I expected. PvP was just awesome, castle sieges are a blast and really well integrated into the game. And even today I still sometimes miss the Tyrant class. Then again, today L2 is a ruin of what it was before; its an Aion clone now.

    All the MMO's I have bought have been worth the money. But then I only pre-ordered twice in my life so the odds were stacked in my favour.

    If you finding you often think the MMO's you buy are not worth the money, how about waiting until launch? Not rocket science is it?

  • AdamantineAdamantine NowherePosts: 3,514Member

    Doesnt protect you.

    Guild Wars is loved by many people, and yet it didnt worked at all for me.

    And I bought it long after the last expansion, too, so there was plenty of information around and I've met GW players, too.

  • UsualSuspectUsualSuspect CardiffPosts: 1,243Member
    If I had paid for it, original EverQuest, but a friend actually gave it to me saying they didn't want to play it. His brother had bought it for him. I had no idea what it was but I figured it's got a free month with the box so sure, why not! Best decision ever, best game ever, never have I played a game constantly for over 3 years, and doubt I ever will again. I did buy the expansions that came out, Kunark, Velious, Luclin, PoP, DoN, but the original game was a free gift which I heartily thank my friend for.
