Ok, so right now I can't afford to sub to a game.  But, there are several F2P options that I really enjoy.  Problem is, I can't make up my mind. So, I'm going to let you guys choose.  If you want to discuss some of the games that's fine but please don't let this become a discussion of x game is better than y game because, or x game sucks because.  Please try to stay positive and constructive.  If you play any of these games, if you want, post your toons name and contact info and I'll try to look you up in game.  Thanks guys!

    I'm playing Aion currently.....great F2P model.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I said GW2, I didn't really play long myself because leveling for me was too much work I felt, (I was most likely doing it wrong but,) Honestly one of the most charming games I've played, with the new April event "Super Adventure Box" was just awesome!

     

    Highly reccommend this game.

     

    alot too like! and Do!

    Aion and I have a love hate relationship.  I love the graphics which typically I don't like the more anime appearing games.  The basic gameplay is simple and fun.  I love flying.  But, I feel like it's a little grindy at times.  More so than other games.  It may be that I revisit it eventually though.  To be honest I have a tendency to forget about it because I don't currently have it installed.  I may have to remedy that, thank you.

    GW2 really does have a lot to offer.  I get the more hardcore gamers find fault with what they feel is a relatively short game, luckily for me I'm a hardcore casual lol.  I do think it's a lot of fun.  I love the way your powers change when you change weapons.  To me that seems genius and a little more realistic  and natural.  I also love games with active dodge.  It will definitely be one that I always revisit and if we don't get more voters in here I'll apparently be revisiting it very soon! lol

    Very well then.  You shall play Tecmo Super Bowl.

    I take it you don't have a problem with buy to play, or perhaps spending some money occasionally on an item mall?  It's just the monthly subscription that you won't pay?

    Hah!  I remember Techmo!  No, I just can't buy a new game right now.  I actually prefer buy to play.  But right now I am stuck with that I have and I prefer not to spend any cash because I am currently out of work and have a wife and 2 kids to care for.  Not saying I won't spend a couple bucks here and there on item shop boosts etc, but I can't do it on any kind of regular basis till I get a new line of work.

    Tecmo Super Bowl.. lol.  My brother used to play that all the time.

    Anyway, I guess I'm another one for GW2, however I'd also recommend EQ2 (now that someone told me you're not limited to two characters on a free account).  If you can stand the fact that the combat is very straight-forward early MMO "punch for punch", then EQ2 has a lot of great lore and quests galore.  You'll be in the general starting area for quite a while before even noticing that you've spent so much time there.  With a friend, it's even better.

    I haven't logged on my PC so I'm not voting yet but I'd refer you to either EQ2 if you want a really deep themepark experience or if you want something a little more open world Vanguard. Both have in depth crafting and would supply you with a LOT of content.

    If you go the EQ2 route I would consider the one time 5.00 for silver status.

    Oh and we can play Techmo but I get to be the Raiders :)

    I didn't realize it to your post that Techmo had been turned into an online game!  Wow.

    If you can't afford a subscription fee then I am sure you can't afford the cash shop fee that some of those titles will pull out of you to play and advance. That leads me to suggest GW2 from the list as you already own it and the cash shop is purely for vanity items and party goods you can totally skip.

     I must have missed something with AoC...It felt like I was playing EQ2 all over again and that was in Tortage...I heard it got alot worse once you past level 20 so I didnt see any reason to go on..... voted GW2 for the OP even though you do have to pay for it.

    You cannot go wrong with GW2.

    Imma have to vote for, Terra.  This game may not seem like it is, but it's bringing alot to the new, "Open World" platform style for games.  Out of graphics of course this is the best choice it has vivid scenery to the game that makes you have that warm feeling inside just like Aion gives players. 

    The controls may get hard to get use to once you get more skills, but eventually you'll be use to it.

    Well, it's been a couple of days now and those of you who voted clearly favor GW2 so....I'll see you in game.
