[heading]10. Age of Conan: Unchained[/heading]

game was once popular during the days where paid subscriptions were the
norm.  Now Age of Conan becomes another
free-to-play wonder in the MMO world, and you can find it on steam. This MMORPG
delivers eighty levels of play where players can choose from four races and twelve
unique classes. The biggest draw comes from being immersed in the land of
Hyboria, using specific skills to emulate adventures similar to the game?s famous
fantasy hero; Conan the Barbarian. Players can choose to work their way through
the PvP ranking systems and work with others creating diverse guilds. Now that
every class is available in free to play fashion, Age of Conan: Unchained is a
great MMORPG to start with on Steam.

[heading]9. War of the Immortals[/heading]

of the Immortals
hits players with an immediate selection of eight fantastic
heroes, each with unique gear tailored to their specifications. Characters will
travel through famous worlds like Asgard, Valhalla, and Atlantis while fighting
plenty of mythical beasts. The best aspect about this title is the pet system,
which allows you to capture almost any beast you come across. With a new update
(Titan?s Fury) already running in the
action MMORPG; it?s clearly already headed in the right direction toward
free-to-play greatness.

[heading]8. MapleStory[/heading]

up comes a delightfully charming creation that is very different from other
MMORPGs. Many games are 2D like MapleStory, but few function as side-scrolling
platform adventures. The aesthetics may be simple but they do the job in
bringing gamers a unique style of MMO gaming. Like most MMOs, players can chat,
trade, and even form parties or guilds. Best of all is that the game finally
integrated player verse player combat. The biggest draw about the game probably
comes from the diverse level of customization on characters. With an assortment
of quests, dungeons, and minigames to go along with such a strong character
focus, MapleStory has something for everyone, and at no cost.

[heading]7. Age of Empires Online[/heading]

year ago this historically themed game may have struggled to make the list, but
has since become a fantastic addition to the MMORPG community. Last March,
Steam issued a major overhaul patch that drastically improved the flow of
gameplay. Several PvP modes and classic RTS gameplay options have created a
diverse MMORPG experience where gamers can co-operate and compete with others. There?s
even an abundance of premium content available for those who want to take their
experience throughout history more seriously. Best of all, the game features a
way to earn Empire Points, which can eventually be exchanged for all content seen in premium
packages, giving players a rare option to never have to spend money. Beat that

[heading]6. Realm of the Mad God[/heading]

is one of the most unique MMORPGs on the list. The browser based co-op shooter
displays a wonderfully original pixelated experience. Popularly characterized
as a Bullet Hell MMO, Realm of the Mad God delivers an amazing mix of new age
character options while delivering classic frustrating game play that oddly
makes gamers more dedicated. Simple 8-bit graphics merely mask the sheer amount
of action this game has to offer. Players will hunt down hundreds of items
while working their way toward intense boss battles. Did I mention there is
permadeath? Players better not get too attached to their first character,
because although the game is easy to play, it becomes extremely difficult to
master.  Jump in to Realm of the Mad God
right away and find yourself working with countless others trying to keep their
little 8-bit buddy alive too.

[heading]5. Star Trek Online[/heading]

is another monthly subscription game fated for the free to play world. Star
Online went free to play just last year, after already attracting a decent amount of fans.  Thirty years after the events of Star Trek
Nemesis, players
find themselves in the midst of another war between the United Federation of
Planets and the
Klingon Empire. Aside from the obvious appeal of the Star Trek universe being
in a massive setting for the first time, this MMORPG delivers an amazing
simulated experience through the deepest regions of outer space. Players will
undertake missions manning their own starship, commanding fleets, and battling famous Star
Trek enemies. With a foundry system that allows participants to enable player
created missions for each other, Star Trek Online boldly goes where no MMORPG
has gone before.

[heading]4. Everquest[/heading]

sequel is newer and therefore better, right? Any video game or movie fan will
tell you this is wrong, and no situation is more proving than with the
Everquest series. Everquest II may be gaining popularity, but few MMORPGs
achieve nineteen expansions. Hell, only a handful even achieve one fourth of
that mark. Everquest has been going strong since 1999, before the world was
littered with gamers, and only a few of the ones who existed even knew what an
MMORPG was. Thirteen years of existence means thirteen years of content and
improvements, something Everquest doesn?t get chintzy with. A combination of
sixteen classes and sixteen races provide one of the most diverse build systems
in any MMO. The game now sports over 50,000 items, over 500 locations, and 90
levels of cooperative and solo adventuring. With the MMO lynchpins like group
raids, an in game economy, and even holiday events; Everquest provides more
than any other MMORPG could ever hope to offer.

[heading]3. Dungeons & Dragons Online[/heading]

started as a collection of people at one table wanting to experience the same
adventures has transcended into MMORPG greatness. Dungeons & Dragons Online
presents one of the most amazing group experiences offered in gaming. The
traditional roleplaying game is known for extensive character builds and
in-depth adventures; and the MMO doesn?t stray away from that famed philosophy.
Character traits are nearly inexhaustible and create a world where you may
never find two of the same looking creations. D&D has always been about
detail, and that?s something developers achieved on all levels. Dungeons and
Dragons Online
perfectly immerses players in a fantasy world while providing
fantastic battle action. The freedom and control of each battle creates one of
the most unforgettable experiences you will find in an MMORPG.

[heading]2. DC Universe Online[/heading]

better way to feel like your favorite super hero than by presenting the nearly
flawless combat system in DC Universe Online. Players have comprehensive control over every battle, specifying individual attacks to a point that’s not comparable to any other MMO in existence. An early choice of
morality dictates unique MMORPG leveling, as a character’s storyline has everything to do with what
a player will experience in the game. This isn?t some third party super hero
action RPG; it?s a massive world filled with famous characters and story concepts
from acclaimed DC writers. Sometimes there?s just no beating a tacky cape and a good catch phrase.
The game also presents a cast of voice actors that?s only matched by the
intensity of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Bonus content is available through premium
and legendary subscription types, but DC Universe Online gives fans the best
shot at feeling like their favorite characters at the lowest price possible – Free!

[heading]1. The Lord of the Rings Online[/heading]

There are few stories more popular in the fantasy genre than The
Lord of the Rings
. Star Wars and Star Trek are becoming huge successes in the
gaming community because of their excellence in bringing such brilliant cult
followed universes to life. This MMORPG may not have the track record Everquest
does, but it has been around much longer than some of its other contenders.
Everything you could hope to expect in this type of game is delivered.
Crafting, cooking and farming are all present. Players can spar against each
other in riveting one on one battles. This experience goes to a whole other
level by allowing players to learn instruments, purchases houses, partake in
private and public conversations, and build on traits that might seem uselessly
nitpicky in other video games. That?s what this game stresses on though;
bringing both essential and minor Lord of the Ring attributes into the players
hands. This MMO actively puts players into scenarios they would expect to see
made famous throughout the books and movies. Moreover, The Lord of the Rings
creates a truly original experience that can’t be found in any other
MMORPG title.
