    PvP wise?
    Ragnarok Online. It's old, but it really hasn't been beat yet.

    Tera online is looking pretty fantastic. But hasn't even gone into closed beta yet.

    Spiral Knights is pretty unique, and very fun.


    Can't think of much else these days. Most are pretty terrible thanks to a majority being social MMOs, casual piles of trash, pay2win, or a mixture of any of those.

    Mabinogi, it's my all time favorite MMO.

    Cosmic Break (not really a RPG but it's so good)
    Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst
    Guild Wars.

    I was playing Eden Eternal(yesterday was the last day of closed beta test) and I actually enjoyed it.
    You can change class freely and anywhere, like Dragon quest IX, and it's less grindy than most MMORPG.

    Yeah it seemed pretty good.
    I just didn't recommend it cuz I haven't seen what end-game is like.
    Switching classes at any time is pretty cool, but I kind wish there was a larger cooldown for class switching outside of towns.

    I recommend Runescape. Expansive free play, cheap members subscriptions, and a wide variety of activities and player base. Also, frequent updates.

    One of the few old MMOs that hasn't resorted to Pay 2 Win.

    Ragnarok Online for sure. The old-style combat is very nice.

    If you can't stand MMOs without 3D, though, go for Ragnarok Online 2.

    As a current runescape player, I too recommend runescape. It has a free version to try it out and membership options arent too expensive. Plus it gets game content updates every month.

    Maplestory? the new big bang update made it easier to level up now and its 2D so if your interested in 2D platformers then play Maplestory.

    I vote +1 for this. I'm still waiting in Europe for the Big Bang to come out, but Maple, despite all tales, is a very fun to play game. Perfect World has some pretty good games. Jade Dynasty for example... Guild Wars is very good, I played it ALOT and like it still. You can try runescape and stuff, its not that bad you know, it can be fun if played right, it's not too expensive to become a member. Eden Eternal is very flexible.. Have been playing since day 1 of CB and its very fun, as you can shift classes.

    I am sure the OP is aware of WoW. He probably meant non-subcription/free ones.

    I was a pretty solid Guild Wars player for years but I haven't played it a couple of years. It's got some great concepts at it and the PvE is a ton of fun but the PvP gets really boring (mainly because ArenaNet sucks at skill balancing and it basically ends up in a "meta or gtfo" situation). I'm not quite sure how active it is nowadays but it's still fun.

    I'll advocate for Runescape though, I was a hardcore player in my elementary/middle school years. In retrospect, it's still a good MMORPG. It had a lot of content, cheap subscription fee (if you wanted to subscribe), and being browser-based, it could run on most any system. It may seem like child's play but its solid.

    Nowadays I stick more to LAN games like Dungeon Siege (the original) and Terraria (I just play Terraria on LAN). Just get a couple of buddies and find a good dungeon crawler type of game (Baldur's Gate, Dungeon Siege, Diablo II, etc), get Hamachi, and LAN some shit up.

    I hear Spiral Knights is getting pretty popular. But unless you're willing to shell out some cash, the "free" MMO tends to only let you play a small amount of dungeons each day.

    It's really nothing more than a fancy way of giving you a trial and making you buy the full, free MMO without you knowing it.
