    Darkfall would be a great start! The community is super helpful and everyone is so friendly! It's a real hoot!

    What are your other Hobbies?

    Gaming is Dirt Cheap compared to this...

    Hey guys,

    My girlfriend just got a new laptop and I convinced her to sit down and play some MMOs. Her old laptop was never able to play games and she's always just watched me play instead. But now that she has a laptop that is moderate for gaming, we're going to jump into an MMO together.

    Right now I'm thinking Guild Wars 2 is a good start. She's never played any game like an MMO. While I as a die-hard fan of GW1 pretty much hate the dumbing down of the sequel, it's a great casual game for a 1st timer. But I really don't want to buy her a copy and find out we can't get into it together (we're really tight on money). So I'm kind of sitting at a standstill.

    I'll take all opinions. I'm really just looking for a good group centric game with lots of character customization. I'll even take non-MMO suggestions. Also it has to be F2P.





    Neverwinter will make you want to spend money on it's cash shop....so many things in that game taunt you to make real money purchases. It's also small and guides you with not alot of freedom to explore. Nice action style combat systems with active blocking for some classes.

    Path of Exile is a fun top down mmo and has good group play dynamics and a deep system. It's kind of like Diablo 2 but better in some ways.

    Rift is a more serious style open ended quest hub theme park that has good character customization and brought some new things to the table upon it's release. Good dungeons as well as group content for 2 or more. It's a big game and will gobble up quite a bit of time, but is worth it.

    ArcheAge is number 1 choice since you can pretty much do anything in it and can go in whatever directions you want to. I have watched several girl gamers playing it on twitch and they are all enjoying it except when they get PvP killed. Even then they are not but hurt about it and bounce right back into things. This game has years of choose your own adventure types of days in it where you can basically set a goal and go for it...both big and small. Beta is around the corner for it but not sure about release and it will be free to play on release.

    Honorable mentions.

    Anarchy Online.  A classic futuristic mmo with different factions and all sorts of character choices and fun.

    Star Trek Online. Have to enjoy some trek to get into this one.....but it can be fun.

    Here's games we play:

    - Rift

    - Neverwinter

    - Path of Exile

    - DayZ SA

    - APB Reloaded

    - LOTRO


    Most are even F2P now, so the initial investment isn't much. Download, test, play - see if some of these work for you. :)

    Thanks for all the replies.


    I'm just going to play some GW2 with her, my brother is inactive so I'll have a test run on his account.

    I recently got my wife into Tera.  She is loving it so far.  Granted not her first MMO.  Neither one of us have gotten very far, but she seems to be picking it up pretty quick especially since she's used to tab targetters like WoW and Rift.  So might be an idea.  Other than that I would have to agree with others and say GW2 as an option.

    If you guys end up with Guild Wars 2 come to Tarnished coast myself, my wife and trying to get some of the other couples we know back into it.  Used to have quite a large group of us that played.

    Your gf might like Lusternia, its high-fantasy but has a good variety of unique races and classes.

    For those curious she's in love with GW2 and is buying her own account this week. Thanks again!!
