Excellent list, quite a few gems I've not seen mentioned elsewhere in quite some time. I would recommend an excellent MUD-type game though, Roto-X. It's got an energy cap, similar to other browser games, but there's legit ways to circumvent that. Good post-apocalyptic theme going on that's very trendy at the minute, great community too!
What's more is that the game has recently had a reset, so everything is great for a new player to jump on-board with.
The game has a ton of humour in it, a little reminiscent to old school fallout actually. It's well worth checking out.
This list is brilliant! My game fits perfectly (now in open beta).
Island Forge - Create Islands with Stories for Others to Explore!
It's all about player-created content, with an old-school style. It's not your typical MMORPG - I've made it a point to do things a little differently. Features a unique hybrid HP/XP system and different kind of leveling model. Everything is built around providing a nice environment for storytelling and player creativity.
See my open beta thread here at mmorpg.com.
Thanks for your interest!

I'd like to find a good mmorpg. I tried Runes of Magic did't like it as moding gear was too complicated. I like a good story that continues to evolve any ideas?

Island Forge is all about player-created content, with a strong focus on storytelling. ("Create islands with stories for others to explore.") Consequently, the world's story/ies have endless potential to evolve!
What is more, the character system has been specifically designed to be un-complicated (but still intricate in a classic RPG kind of way).
I think you'd enjoy Island Forge, and I'd love to hear your thoughts! I'm the (sole) developer. Thanks for your interest!

Happy to see at least one place that has us in it
I'm from the Shades of Truth Community. Just a player but we're still around and kicking. I've tried some of the other games on this list too because I would love to find a game with something similar to SOT's community but a bigger player base like we once had. Unfortunately it's very difficult to find, so I stick to the good ole.
Though on the plus side we're about to get NPC enemy creatures back for hunting now (Makes leveling easier). Though it requires skill to actually kill them, not like alot of games where you enter into a combat system. It's free flowing and if you face off against one that is stronger than you can handle. It'll punt you around lol.
I haven't seen it mentioned yet so I figured I'd add it.
It is a text based/browser based mmorpg with a huge list of races and classes to choose from, each with their pros and cons. There are a lot of features of this game that stand out in providing a new experience, for me atleast, but what stands out the most is the fact that it can be played afk. It is very intricate, but also a passive game you can manage to play in the background of other games, or even at work. Countless types of weapons and equipments with 16 total equipment slots. I could go on all day, but if you haven't checked it out yet, it's definitely worth it. OH YEA! It's free!
+1 vote to add Ryzom to the list. I've spent the past few days playing it and it's an extremely unique and fun game.
Gatheryn no longer exists. It never made it out of the beta stage and I'm not sure what happened to it.
I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.
Achaea definitely needs some exposure because it gave so many ideas to the MMORPG industry
Parallel Kingdom is very unique from the rest of the pack b/c it's a location-based rpg. So your position in the game's overworld is determined by your real-life locale. And it happens to be very deep, especially for a smartphone game, and getting deeper b/c the game is continuously updated.
Hey, I just noticed you added Vendetta Online, my favorite game of all time. Major cool points
Let me know if you need help or if you have any questions... in game or here.

I am surprised I don't see The Secret World. Since it has been B2P, the sub barrier is gone. The game is decent, more than decent, and it is very different with the ability to learn all weapons and spells on one toon and change abilities in and out on a whim, by fight or whenever without penalty or charge as long as you know them.
There is a learning curve to the game, but the community overall is great and the forums are stuffed with threads on how to make decent builds.
The missions are also very different. Along witht he basic missions there are stealth quests (quests that require you to go into dangerous areas sneakily, if you get caught you probably die) and puzzle missions (google is your friend... deciphering runes, morse code, ISBN codes from books, old songs, even Bible passages are clues) along with the regular kill and fetch quests.
I highly recomend The Secret World to any adult looking for something different, it has a rated M.
opening post hasnt been updated since 2010. maybe get someone active to update and repost? then re stiocky?

Panzar is a really unique game that I have recently picked up that I have become quite enchanted with. It is free to play and a MOBA. Skill based-aim based. Great smooth engine, blocking, mages, healers that do more than press buttons, tanks that are TRULY tanks. Please give the game a shot. I have more info about it in this thread.
Remove or update Faunasphere, Knights of Dream City, Mytheon, Dark Solstice, Roma Victor, MegaTen, Craft of Gods, Hostile Space, Underlight: Shades of Truth, Gatheryn, Spellborn, and Golemizer.
Dead links, generic redirects, or dead project pages.
The only reason I care about this list is because Vendetta Online and ATITD are on it.

The OP doesn't post here anymore (link) so the list can no longer be updated. Might be worth it for someone else to start a new thread.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre
