Looking For New Game!

Hello Everybody!


I know I have posted at all here but you can call me Flat for short, since I know my profile name can be funny at times. Well I guess ill get straight to the point. I have been playing games off and on lately and I am really into MMORPGS mainly than anything, but I do have no problem playing any other game. Here is a list of games that I have most enjoyed.

World Of Tanks ( mmo ): I have played this game back in closed beta and open as well. I have sadly branched off of it, but it can be truly free to play as all you have do is invest time to get better tanks. Be aware though that you might have limited space for new tanks. I however do not know the amount of hours I have spent in the game.


Runes of Magic ( mmorpg ): This was one good game to play back then when I played in Chapter 1 - 2. But once you get to a certain level I believe it was 55+ it became almost paid to play cause in order for you get  good gear you had to spend a lot of money. Not that I have a money issue at all no more, back in those days I didn't have a job so I couldnt get good gear at all. So I basically took breaks from the game. But now I do not go back at all. I don't even know if any body plays this game at all anymore anyways. But if you do please enlighten me and tell me how the game is these days?


Rift ( mmorpg ): This game was very good in the beginning, I have played it for quite sometime. I haven't reached max level yet but I have also took breaks from this game as well. I do like however that its a wow clone. Love the way the do the classes to as well. I have played it for quite sometime.

TERA ( mmorpg ): I have never tried TERA. Any comments are welcome about the game. 

I would like to know your opinion on your favorite game right now.  An don't worry about it if its free to play or paid to play. For money its not and issue for me.

    You could give Archeage a try, its alot of fun even with all the negativity people have towards it. Theres alot you can do in the game, gliding around ( so relaxing) building houses/farms, pvp ( even pvping against your own faction and stealing there tradepacks), trade runs are also a fun feature in this game, you can build ships and fight each other or become a pirate or battle huge seamonsters. 


    Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn, this game is very polished, has a great community and looks great, the only problem i had with it is the combat was too slow for me.


    Elders Scrolls Online, good game, youll have fun in it, its not great but its pretty decent. Combats quite smooth, it looks good, large community, its just a bit hard to find people for mid lvl dungeons. But that might not be an issue any more with all the new players that have recently joined.

    You didn't mention which paying model do you prefer, so these suggestions which mostly are sub games may or may not appeal to you.

    1.  World of Warcraft - the top dog in MMOs.  If you have never played this game there is a lot of content (10 years).  Starting in this game is pretty cheap these days.  They have for sale a Starter Box that includes all expansions, except for the last one, WoD, for a mere $19.99.  Is mostly a subscription game, but they implemented a token system where you after a certain setup time, can eventually pay your subscription using in game currency the same way EVE and Wildstar does.   Game provides a multitude of things to do from achievements, collecting vanity pets and mounts, collect combat mounts if using a hunter, among other things.  This game while has a cash shop which provides vanity items, still has a lot of items to be obtainable from the world.  Even if the game is 10 years old, they have been improving the graphics over the years.  


    2. FFXIV - another solid MMO with strong following.  Is probably the 2nd largest MMO both in content and subscription size.  Can't comment much on it since I don't played it because of the same reason Suntouched mention, combat for me as way too slow, but in defense of that: a) people say combat gets better later, and b) I prefer action combat these days anyway.


    3.  SWTOR - WoW style game but with Star Wars IP.  Good game overall with strong story telling.  Can play for free with some insane restrictions to see if the game appeals to you, and later on close to 50 then subscribe.   They have an intermediate Preferred status that is reached either by buying in their Cash Shop, or by subscribing (and later stop subscription).  Most mounts, and gear sets comes from the Shop, but still some are obtainable in world.  Also if you keep an eye on the AH, you can get some of the Shop ones pretty cheap.


    4.  Guild Wars 2 - very different to the other games.  No subscription (b2p), no quest turning, no boss camping or mob tagging,  multiple ways to finish every quest, ultra fast crafting system, shared bank &  money between all characters, enforces exploration with hidden treasures and map completion rewards, dynamic events, scale character to zone, rock solid stability and gorgeous.  At some point it will made you think why you payed subscription with other games when here everything is free.  End game approach is different from the other 3 games, and combat mechanics based on action combat:  aiming mobs to land hits, and get out of the way to prevent their strong hits on you.  Also has a cosmetic cash shop, but like others you may be able to find some cheap items in the AH.  In the collecting department is a little short, because there is no mounts in this game.


    5. Wildstar - a WoW meets GW2.  Has the grouping and questing elements of WoW and other classic MMO, but with the dynamic grouping, no boss camping & boss tagging , and hidden world chests of GW2.  Some quests can be turned remotely but far from GW2 auto turn quest system.  Also action combat, based on window of opportunity (build or keep cooldowns until mob begin to cast a strong attack, then interrupt for the 150% bonus damage).  The builds in this game comes late, you will not be able to perceive a good rotation until at least lvl 20, while for the most skills and to unlock the 8 move slots you have to be around level 35.  Also due to the build system, is one of the few games that allow making mistakes and wrong builds.  Due to the 8 skill limit, there is no build for all occasions.   Has costumes, mounts and armor dyes, housing, and next patch adds vanity pets.  The only game that to this day lacks a cash shop and everything is either obtainable in the world, or by rewards of boxes when buying it.  


    6.  Elder Scrolls Online - another good solo game overall.  Due to the move to b2p they introduced a Cash Shop recently.  My only reason I'm not playing this game is that when I tried it 2 weeks ago, still had problems when for some reason NPCs or mobs related to quests didn't spawn and require a log out of my part.  Which may be related to the amount of people that went back at that date, or because the system even after a year haven't been fixed completely.  Anyway forced log outs whenever is a crash or I had to manually log out, is a NO for me.    On a plus side, classes are flexible, and game is gorgeous (if you like realistic look).


    For me, currently playing Wildstar on a full time, with Swtor, GW2, TSW, and STO on a part time.

    I'm currently mainly playing SWTOR and TSW. (With a bit of Neverwinter and ESO on the side)

    NightHaven covered SWTOR pretty well already. I enjoy it for the great stories, laidback play style and of course the light sabers. image

    TSW on the other hand is more complex, has a more active combat system and challenging puzzles (investigation missions) and also offers excellent storylines. The setting's also a big draw for me, since you don't find a lot of modern fantasy MMOs. (Think World of Darkness and the Dresden Files to get an idea of things.)

    ESO offers a very beautiful world, with a deep and interesting history and lore. It also has some great story content and a fun combat system.

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    TSW setup and build system set him apart too. Another game with a lot of flexibility that can end up with wrong or weak builds later on. You only need one character to fill all trinity roles. Has costumes and vanity pets. Is b2p with a cash shop, so again most stuff will come from shop instead. But if you don't mind the shop, is a very nice game.

    My favorite is a text based rpg MUD called Avalon: The Legend Lives. It is an amazingly immersive game with great PVP fighting that isn't won by who can create the best bot system but won by player skill, a legion warfare system that can be enjoyed whether you're new to the game or old by enlisting men in to armies, marching troops, besieging cities and conquering land. And if you enjoy commodity type skills they have farming and labors as a way to bring yourself some nice money by mining for ore, breeding animals, ploughing, planting and harvesting crops and so much more. Avalon is over 25 years old and still adding content. I've played for 19 years now and still don't get bored. It is free to play but I know you weren't worried about that. The atmosphere is friendly and helpful to novices.
