Guild Wars is my current mmorpg suggestion for now. Well, Guild Wars is my current costly mmorpg suggestion. I have been playing it for a while now, and I think that game is amazing. There is an expansion pack out, Guild Wars Eye of The North. Also, there are three other parts, Guild Wars Factions, Guild Wars Prophecies, and Guild Wars Night Fall. Also, Guild Wars 2 is on it’s way some time in 2009 I think.
When I first got it, I was hooked. First off, if you don’t know, this game is a one time fee. You just pay for the game, then you get to play it as much as you want. It’s a different type of mmorpg. It’s massively multiplayer, yeah, but if you leave town, you have the whole map to yourself (unless you’re in a party). This prevents any ks’ing and looting. This is pretty much the only mmorpg that I’ve ever played that actually has a story. The story is why I like this game so much. The dual class system doesn’t hurt either. The pvp is also fun, especially a guild war.
The missions are extremely fun and indepth, and dungeon crawling is pretty enjoyable. I remember one mission where a army of monsters are chasing you and you are literally on the run to a city for safety. My friend, who was a Level 20 (max level) Warrior/Monk. That guy is basically a juggernaut. He went in and tanked all the monsters, it was epic.
All in all, Guild Wars is an amazing game. It has story, engaging pvp, missions, and more. I recommend this to anyone who wants to get into the mmorpg world.
