    i really like the idea of a mmorpg, and would like 2 play one. i cannot afford expensive monthly fees, however. so it looks like my only option is guild wars. can any1 tell me what guild wars is like? all the websites about it say that the gameplay is different, but i cannot figure out how.

    ideally, i would rather play wow, but $15 is just 2 much.

    please reply

    well i played wow and played guildwars, imo WoW was better, guild wars was all show, and flashy but the gameplay sucked imo, wow is addicting but there wasnt really a point to the game so i deleted my account, but i liked wow better while it was still fun

    I got guild wars but I thought it was utter crap. Did not like it at all.
    I've tried WoW but I don't like the graphical design. Now I play Everquest 2 - by far the best MMORPG imo. I payed £1.99 for the game then its £6.99 a month or £60 for 12 months

    well tell me if u think id like it:

    i really liked runescape, but stopped playing because its graphics were ****, it was way 2 expensive (in the game) 2 be a mage, and because of the lack of character customization

    i like being a dark mage type of character. i like 2 be in teams (guilds/groups) of characters all working 2gether 2 do an almost impossible goal.

    i like the idea of leveling up a character, but not if its 2 hard

    i like the idea of freelancing (having people higher u 2 do certain tasks that were not meant 2 be jobs in the original game)

    and one of my favorite things is when people find a way 2 make the game perverted (i honestly dont like 2 participate, but its funny as hell)

    I played a bunch of MMOs. WoW was poop, Guild Wars was fun (played for 80 hours) MapleStory was horrible, Silkroad Online was fun but wayyy to much grind, SpaceCowboy was really fun. Best free MMO out there (if you like star fox type gameplay)

    I'm hoping that they come out with a MMORPG Final Fantasy for Wii with no subscription. That would make me a very happy man.:smilewinkgrin:

    A real MMORPG would be impossible without some kind of fee. Besides the MMORPG that Square Enix is making is for the 360, and the PS3.

    I believe WoW is having a free trial atm, why not give it a spin. Worse that could happen is you like it :p

    I myself have played many MMO's, not WoW or Guild Wars but I had friends that did. I've played Asheron's Call, Asheron's Call 2, Star Wars Galaxy, Dungeons & Dragons Online, and my favorite addiction Final Fantasy XI Online. I would say most MMORPG's are tough if you're just a casual gamer. You really end up sinking alot of time and it's not like most games where you can "beat the game" by any uncertain terms. Basically an endless game.

    The Wii could definitely handle FFXI, as for the subscription FFXI won't be free. Would keep the same monthly fee as the game now if it ever did. FFXI currently supports PC, PS2 and 360. I already own FFXI for the PC and 360 I honestly couldn't see buying it for another system.

    I'm just not sure what the advantage would be to playing it on the Wii. I mean that game is keyboard intensive, the main thing the Wii has going is the Wiimote, not sure how that would translate to FFXI. Now if Nintendo made a Zelda type MMORPG I'd be all for it. Something that would incorporate most of the wiimote/nunchuk movements from most of the minigames you see out today. There are rumors that the Wii may be able to support voice chat in the future, but no official word from Nintendo on this. This would open new doors, like the one saving grace of DDO was built in voice chat, I noticed myself typing alot less in that game (unless someone in my party didn't have a mic).

    I would have to agree with you. Maybe thats why Nintendo said the TP was the last of Zelda as we know it. Zelda MMORPG!!

    Search up these MMO's, they're currently the best in my opinion.

    Ever Quest 2,
    Guild Wars,
    RF Online,
    Phantasy Star Universe.

    (If you don't like paying just get Guild Wars, no monthly subscription but it is quite crap compared to the ones you pay for.)

    not to be coarse, but i'd like to mention you might want to consider learning korean.

    www.netmarble.net

    features 30+ games, all free to play [they make money by people buying items who are too lazy to actually do stuff in the game ;)] i've been on it for about a year + and i've loved it.

    there's MMO/FPS,RPG, rhythm, and any other type of game you can imagine [i think there's a card game there too]

    I would say, Try guild wars :) I still play it and enjoy the game. (got 2 chapters, would have got the third but the Wii came so it has to wait :) ) Of course, with all MMOs they are confusing at first to learn all the controls but once you understand how the game works, it's really fun. Very robust PvP but the single player is quite bland. If you are getting guild wars, i would suggest getting the first chapter. Helps introduce you into the game slowly. and the PvE is pretty long. If you like it, get the 2nd and/or third. The second chapter though (factions) doesn't offer such a good PvE but it offers great PvP. The third (Anet finally learning from it's mistakes) revolves around PvE so you'd get a good PvE experience along with the great PvP experience GW offers. (I've been following and playing guild wars ever since it came out in April last year, also started playing the beta 6 months before it launched. Also played WoW for about 6 months before moving on because of $$ reasons)

    Seems like this is your first MMO, i suggest actually trying a few free MMOs to get the feel. If you don't like MMOs (the sense of community, leveling, etc.) than you wouldnt' lose anything but time by trying free MMOs. If you like it, i'd suggest moving on to retail ones (like Guild Wars for example :)). Some Free MMOs i would suggest: Anarchy online, Rappelz, Maplestory, Silk Road, Entropia, and even Runescape. I would suggest trying Runescape first because it is a basic traditional MMO. Don't spend too much time in it, give other MMOs a try since they offer different gameplay settings and environments.

    I would suggest going to the following forums to learn more about it: (best GW sites imo for the best info)
