we all have that new mmo itch and it seems the wait is less than bearable so lets take a minute to take a look back at (in your opinion) were the top 5 best mmos (and I strongly encourage debate and tomfoolery by means of harrassing why you disagree with mine or others opinions.

1) FFXI: good content with great gameplay and storyline, the job change and support job made it so you really only needed 1 toon
2) WOW: loved the PVP and raids the lore (if you took the time to read quest text) was great
3) EQ: its EQ... it was awesome
4) EQ2: loved the crafting system and duo'ing with my rl friend was a good way to waste a few hours of any weekend
5) LOTRO (only cause I loved the books and movies so much I had to play for awhile) otherwise it would be DDO for the dungeons

LOVE THIS THREAD

1) EQ Classic is and will forever be my favorite, the pvp the pve the crafting and god epic quests, everything was so
hard, especially being like 13 lol it was good ******* times.

2) Lotro was just **** fun and I was playing casual at the time it was just really fun.

3) Darkfall, never have I encountered a more brutal or evil community and for that I am thankful. I am untouchable by
trolls, flamers, and all sorts of evils. Also no rules was fun

4) WoW i guess.... just cause its wow meh was fun with friends got boring fast


5) Emulated EQ servers lol i guess this is EQ twice but its a whooolllee nother ballgame with emu pvp lol

I personally was extremely fond of Earth & Beyond. I realize it wasn't the best game, it had its flaws and often times a lack of content. But the server community I had there was unrivaled, even to this day. Everyone seemed to know everyone, people made a name for themselves by crafting items at maximum quality for a fixed price or by being part of a guild who had a great deal of control over the boss spawns.

The only thing that came close to that kind of community was Vanilla WoW when I played on Alleria. Once the cross-server features became available, the server community pretty much died which was sad, even though it did in most cases help make queue times faster for everyone.

I really really REALLY hope that Rift does not use cross-server technology, just for the negative affects it has on each server building their own community.

I agree that cross server grping of any kind is supper detrimental to server character and community growth

FFXI was standing around for HOURS waiting for the right classes just to do a stupid quest. Other than that it was cool.

WoW had the engame raiding, thats what made the game back in Vanilla but then all of the expansions came out and it went into easymode for players.

Never played EQ1 and EQ2

LOTRO was pretty decent for a game that copied a movie.

My top 5 list goes like this...

1. Gate to Heavens (mmorpg that many never heard of, best pvp system of any game I've ever played. Sadly there are no servers of it up anymore)

2. Priston Tales 1 (they completely ruined the game's personality with 2, but 1 was a huge grindfest. However the hellspawns and constant monsters mixes with skill spamming and potion spamming made this one of the best grinding games ever.)

3. Diablo 2 (played that game off and on for 10 years. So amazing can't wait until 3)

4. WoW vanilla version (content, simple as that, it had pretty much everything you could ask for from a mmorpg of its time)

5. Mount and Blade : Warband (Older game that finally released, best combat system in any game I've ever played.

Tibia: Awesome 2D game, my first MMO. Darkfall-like PvP - you lose everything if you die and PK's are rampant.

Ragnarok Online: First 3D MMO. Awesome community and fun game despite it's a typical Korean grindfest. Lots of areas to explore. Requires mad dedication to reach maximum level.

World of Warcraft: A legend, nothing else to say. Best PvE in any online game.

Warhammer: Good PvP but clunky animations and combat.

Aion: Smooth combat and aerial combat failed to impress me.

FFXIV: Beautiful but clunky.
