There Is Always Hope!
Originally posted by keithian The choice would have been WOW if it wasn't for the level 20 cap. I hated Aion, so there is no way I'm going to have a beginner try that.
No problem .. my recommendation is based on the "current " state of Aion, which from what I understand has evolved significantly from the original form which I hadn't played. Good luck on the LOTRO experiment hope they like it.
Is your loss(his actually).Unless he is keen to learn(i.e. Belongs to the 2nd group), I see him dropping MMOs altogether.PM me. You will have WoW.
Edit: To hell with it! Glory to Asuryan and Good! Google notlem(arrange it so it is a word of English). Plus the game you want after that(game set on Azeroth). Enjoy!
Originally posted by keithianI need to introduce someone to MMOs (PVE centric). Curious to get your thoughts as to which ones you think might still be enjoyable and not overwhelm someone while still not boring me to death. WOW? LOTRO? GW2? SWTOR? AOC? Pros/Cons? Best for Groups of 2? Remember, newbies dont understand stats in most cases.Thanks.

Originally posted by asmkm22 World of Warcraft, hands down. It was never very "difficult" but they've been slowly dumbing it down to the point of obsurdity. It's like the McDonalds of MMO's now. Accessible, possibly addictive, no real value.
C'mon if you're a really active person McD's is ok right? All those calories to fuel your active lifestyle?
Might wanna try Darkfall UW, when it's realeased tomorrow Very noobie friendly. You will just get your a** kicked every other time you go out there to kill your goblins like a proper WoW carebear.
Yea, well sarcasm... But tbh I would say it would be awesome game for anyone who likes FPS games and likes that there is some skill involved other than facerolling keyboard and hoging potions. On Darkfall you actually feel like you are making a differece to the world. Your clan/alliance is actually shaping the game world by ruling certain areas. It just feels real. Having crap in your pans every 30 minutes when someone suddenly jumps on you from a tree.
But if you are just looking for a usual level-based grinder game with dungeons and all that "fancy" stuff that anyone can be good at, I would say RIFT does a pretty good job at that, also Guild Wars 2 is nice for that, but the dungeons aren't as good as on RIFT.
