Warhammer Online is still going and as good as ever; TOR is probably my overall favorite. TES Online got the heave when it repeatedly tried to reinstall the entire game; that's a no-go.

I'm impressed to find RuneScape listed here. Usually, I don't find it listed on these kinds of lists.

My favourite dead game. Bad balance, with chaos always smashing order, a lot of bugs, and only 2capitols. But it was hell of fun.
Went to guild wars after and it was a blast. Great game, kinda scratch a bit Warhammer tune.

Good grief steam/pc gaming is wasteland when these ancient games are "the best MMO's". many of these feature playstation one graphics, have been abandoned, and likely have only been played by 40 year olds in their moms basement for decades. kind of looks like the steam most played list in that respect (counter strike, lol, the epitome of basement 40 yr old cool in 2021, this is 1992 right?)

pc's, man.

We're sorry you regret buying a console but its just sad seeing you try to justify the wasted money.

Many of these "older" games are better than the majority of the games that came out in the last few years. Hell, Eve Online even looks better than them even though it came out 18 years ago.

Looks like the listing for Final Fantasy XIV has not been updated since it was written ha ha ha, it might be worth pointing out that the free trial (https://freetrial.finalfantasyxiv.com/na/) for the game has been expanded. While it still restricts some ways in which the player can interact with others (joining free companies, accessing the marketboard, etc), a trial player gains access to all the content of A Realm Reborn and Heavensward, which includes having jobs up to level 60. Basically, they get to play the original game and the first expansion for free.

Oh, and the next expansion (Endwalker) is expected to drop sometime Fall of this year (2021).

I used to play Star Wars Galaxies until it died. Then I tried out Second Life and had great success in it. I was one of, if not the, most popular DJs in Second Life for almost two years before I got tired of it. Then I tried Star Trek Online when it was new because I love the Starships but it was buggy as hell and I decided not to play it anymore.

I have NEVER tried WoW and never will. It's not because I don't think that it's good, it's because it may be TOO good. I've heard of people getting so addicted to it that it has serious negative effects on their real lives. It's the same reason that I won't ever try hard drugs. As long as I don't know what I'm missing, I'm safe. In this case, ignorance isn't just bliss, it's freedom. :laughing:

TLDR if someone else already mentioned it, but ESO also has a subscription service - ESO Plus. This gives you certain gameplay bonuses that makes your life a bit easier and it also unlocks the DLC's without buying them individually.

Graphics: Old school, but charming

Pay Model: Do whatever necessary to survive (work, steal, beg...)

Asherons Call was great. I miss those late 90s early 2000 mmo.

I'm also surprised so few people remember Dark Age Of Camelot.

First rule of the DAoC club is.......
Yeah, best 3 sided war ever. Still a few private servers around. Kind of miss WH Online too.
