    Vanilla Guild Wars, by far. Running missions and quests during the earliest days of this game was the most wonderful experience any mmo has given me- the double class system, combined with the limited number of skills one could have equipped at a time, created a huge amount of possibilities for personal and team-wide combinations and synergies. This made communication and coordination absolutely neccessary, not only in PvP, but in PvE as well, and created memorable friendships and social interactions. The exploration and skill-capturing aspect also added an extra layer of depth, seeing your character progress not in terms of raw power but rather in flexibility and adaptability. Of course, sooner than later this entire dynamic devolved into min/maxing gimmicky meta trains, due to poor balancing. Still it was great while it lasted. Too bad Arenanet had to give all that up with Guild Wars 2, a game whose only common element with its' predeccesor is the name.

    I would have to put my vote into Final Fantasy XIV. I was completely blown away by the complexity of the crafting system and actually being able to develop a rotation to craft. In my experience; however, I have found that it not so much the game graphics or its gameplay that makes an MMO great, but really the guild I end up joining and the surrounding community that make me end up staying for a long time. I found the community in FFXIV to be the best I have ever found across any game. So many randoms I have met in dungeon finder have been so helpful and people I tried gonig back to WoW only to discover that no one even so much as said "Hi" in the beginning of the dungeon. The quiet experience was not for me whatsoever. I'll probably be going back to FFXIV quite soon, but first have to finish moving into my new house.

    I think my favorite must be an early one Guild Wars, one of the first ones that had no monthly subscriptions, a great way to get into them at the time it came out.

    Guild Wars 2 is currently my favoriate MMO, although, I tend to jump between GW2 and Rift quite a bit. Both games are beautiful to look at. Each has a unique story/Lore that is complex enough to be interesting, but not so much as to get lost and lose interest.

    My favourite MMO would have to be Archeage its was my first MMO and the one i had the most fun with it was ware i found great friends and it has a great combat system thats suits me next to BDO. I love it housing system its class system and the different means of transport especially boats sail on the high seas is great. And i like the glider system its fun and very useful.

    My favourite MMO to the date is sadly World of Warcraft, the first real and strong MMO experience I had, and the one that has kept me up engaged until today. The Lore, lots of content, years of experience, lots of mechanics and re-playability, to me is still the king.

    Lineage 2, because it's everything!

    Favorite all time: WoW, Had the best time overall in this game. All time greatest moment in game would have to be the pre-bc world events. Pissing off your own faction by turning quest hubs into zombie towns and not letting them quest was hilarious.

    Most immersive: Lotro
    Best Looking: EVE

    My favourite MMO has to be DAoC, played it for seven years and still think RVR (PVP) is still the best model I have seen.

    For me its all about EvE Online, been in game since july 08, still playing it, have done everything the game has offer, from scamming , thieving, piwacy to be full on carebear (todays life style)
    No other MMO on market offers such freedom to do what you want, the meta game is part of hte game.

    I cannot think of another MMO that has as many stories written about it, from the GHSC infiltration for over a year to carry out a contract on a CEO to the theft from EvE Bank (about 100k in real life money)

    This game can be hard to get into, but once in it she is a harsh mistress, and to this day (in fact as i type this) im in game.

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game where of course you're welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

    My first comment ^_^ Well, my favorite MMO is Blade & Soul. Despite the amazing views and graphics, the fast paced attack system is amazing. It's well made, in order. Questing is amazing so is PVP.

    My favorite MMO is easily The Secret World...which is an odd choice considering I don't play it that often. Still, there are moments where I get drawn back in, and the atmosphere ropes me in all over again no matter how long I stay away. It's easily one of the better storytelling MMOs going.

    City of Heroes was my all time favorite because come on who has never dreamed of being a Super Hero. Unfortunately that time has come to an end and now the replacement has become Elder Scrolls on line.
  • ssarasinssarasin Member UncommonPosts: 1
    So many good choices. I play so many great MMOs such as LoTRO, DDO, STO... The list goes on. I think that I have to say that my favorite MMO currently is Guild Wars 2. I have been playing it quite a bit lately. I just really enjoy the fact that no matter what level you are, you can easily enjoy the content because of how the game scales with the content. I also enjoy the fact that there is always something going on. You can just randomly run around the game world and always run across a group of players to party up with to take down one of the world bosses. Or just to goof off in Lion's Arch with some mock battles in costume. Then of course there is the PvP and World vs World. So many things to do, and only so many hours in the day.

    Elder Scrolls Online. Basically the freedom to do anything and Crafting just takes up my time.
  • KimoKimo Member UncommonPosts: 58
    Wurm Online - The amount of customization is mind boggling and it isn't a minecraft clone. Played almost continually for over 5 years now.
  • ZArmiZZArmiZ Member UncommonPosts: 27
    All time favourite .. well its a hard decision to make ... but i will give my credits to Anet and the Guild Wars Franchise.This game changed the way of the mmos for me feom gameplay to story plot and also the complexity of the classes .. the lore and combat wise. There are so many good things to say and so many good memories.

    EverQuest because it felt as if you were playing your own story within the confines of a world narrative. Plus, although you could solo, benefits went to playing with more people. This gave a better sense of community and that the world was much bigger than you.

    My Favourite MMO was SWG, The adventures we had there were second to none, No other game has caught the social entertainment provided, I sat for hours in the cantina's talking with other players. The crafting system was the best I have ever en counted in any MMO, I remember how proud I was of my store and craft trade when you meet random players asking who they would recommend as a good armorsmith, shipwright etc and they mention you name and sending them across the galaxy to visit the shop set up on Naboo.
    Game was truly epic and none have ever rivaled it.

    Star Wars Galaxies: it's the game that got
    Me into mmorpg's. I loved the in game adventures and never looked back.
  • NobleNerdNobleNerd Member UncommonPosts: 759
    Fav. MMO of "ALL TIME"..... hmmm.
    Mine would have to be FFXI. It was one of my first in the genre and definitely had many elements that I enjoyed. The social aspect of the game, to this day, no other MMO rivals it. I made many friends. The combo system with Magic Bursts playing off melee combos was soo much fun to pull off when you had a good team! The Dunes will always bring back so many memories.... so many deaths!

    Everquest. The first and best MMO I've played. The community, the sense that reputation in game mattered and no instanced content made sure that no action was without consequence.
  • ridone147ridone147 Member UncommonPosts: 2
    My favorite MMO is Wildstar Online. Cuz funny
  • deviant9deviant9 Member UncommonPosts: 2
    Fav MMO(RPG) series and game is still Guild Wars. Both the first as well as the second have astounded me from the first to the last gameplay minute.

    The First Guild Wars was revered over the whole world as bringing a whole new concept to the MMORPG world and at its top had a very widespread and friendly userbase.

    Currently Guild Wars 2 is still grasping my full game attention as the ingame world and events can keep anyone busy who is willing to be openminded in what and how you want/can play the game.
