Top 10 MMORPG Games and Why Are They Still Up There

I love playing MMORPG’s as they are one of the best games that will make you stay PUT. MMORPG means Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. Yes, its meaning tells us everything. This kind of game should keep you close to the game, every day there should be something new that you need to do. I tried a lot of MMORPG games like, Neverwinter, WoW, TERA, The Elder Scrolls Online etc… You can see the top 10 mmorpg games below.

The only reason I stopped playing a lot of them and kept playing only one tells me everything. I am not going to tell you right now, you will see the number one game that is listed by Future Games Releases.

Top 10 MMORPG Games – Choose your second life:

10. RIFT

rift gameplay

Released by Trion Worlds in early 2011, Rift takes place in the world of Telara where players take on the personality of an “Ascended.” Two competing factions of Ascended, the Guardians and the Defiant, battle through the monsters of Telara in an effort to bring down Regulos, a dragon god bent on the complete destruction of Telara.

Rift is one of the best clones of World of Warcraft. Why? Rifts, Invasions, Quests and Raids which makes the Ingame world more deadly and fun to play. You can also see the interface of the game on the picture. It’s really similar to WoW’s, Spells placement, buffs, debuffs etc…

Rift classes:

Cleric. Cabalist. Druid. Inquisitor. Justicar. Purifier. Sentinel. Shaman. Warden. Mage. Archon. Dominator. Elementalist. Necromancer. Pyromancer. Stormcaller. Warlock. Assassin. Bard. Marksman. Nightblade. Ranger. Riftstalker. Saboteur. Beastmaster. Champion. Paragon. Riftblade. Void Knight. Warlord.

Is it worth trying RIFT? Of Course, Rift is really good and have a decent gameplay, and it’s also for free. This game can be also found on Steam.

9. ArcheAge

arch age online

ArcheAge is an MMORPG developed by Korean developer Jake Song and his development company, XL Games. The game was released in Korea on January 15, 2013, Europe and North America on September 16, 2014, and has also had a closed beta in China. Wikipedia

ArcheAge is a game with a really good questing line. But, however, the questing and it’s story can be easily forgotten. It’s pretty big, especially the ocean. You do not even need to try and get the questing line, it’s better if you go on a boat and take a ride in the ocean.

The good part is that deep into the ocean you can find mysterious “thingies”. Shipwrecks filled with bounty. Everyone love that :).  Maybe you will try to do something against the KRAKEN too. Yes, there is a KRAKEN.

Well, the bad thing is that the game is a little bit p2w, which means pay to win. Why? No one pushes you to win and be the strongest character in the game. But there are lot of rich people that can buy everything they like.

That’s why it deserves to be number 9.

8. Star Trek Online

star trek online

Star Trek Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Cryptic Studios based on the Star Trek series created by Gene Roddenberry. The game is set in the 25th century, 30 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. Cryptic Studios are really standing up in this MMO’s list because they are really pushing themselves so hard and they do prove that they are serious contenders over the next best MMORPG game.

In Star Trek Online, players may choose one of three career paths (sometimes also classes, previously called “professions”) they wish their character to follow (Tactical, Engineering, Science).

With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online will feel like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star.

The experience is really nice as you can get a trip to DS9, Risa and get space battles with Romulans, Cardassians and with whoever is standing your path. The space fights are a bit too tactical. The best thing is that this game is growing up as there are new updates coming in this game (seems like they never stop). What really sets is apart from other MMO’s is their ships and you do not need to level up, you only need to customize.

Play Star Trek Online for free.



A little bit childish with sexy girl characters. That’s what most of the people wants, right? I think they tried to aim at the young population by doing this.

Tera is a 3D fantasy themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Bluehole Studio.

This game sticks kinda close to WoW’s template of gameplay. They kinda keep it close to WoW, but not that much like RIFT. Tera is a free to play game and it’s great action fights makes this game even more beautiful. Everything seems calm in the very beginning until you go deeper in the game and start fighting those Big Monsters. Killing, movement and close fights in this game is what it stands out mostly from others.

In the very end, I still find this game kinda boring. But for a short period of playing, it definitely pays out. You can cooler your brain by playing this game for a period of time. Worth trying as the game is free to play.

6. The Elder Scrolls Online

the elder scrolls online

The Elder Scrolls Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing video game developed by ZeniMax Online Studios. It was originally released on April 4, 2014 for Microsoft Windows and OS X.

The Elder Scrolls Online deserve to be in this spot only because of the amazing game graphics. Everything looks just so real. The game has a nice and decent questing line, even tho some of them are not that understandable. Flying mounts… I forgot to say about that in the games above. It’s not just this game that’s missing flying mounts tho. We’ll meet them afterwards, do not worry.

The exploration in this game is it’s strong side, because the textures are really nice. When it comes to fights, they are not that good.

The game is one time buy, no monthly fees no nothing. Worth trying if you love to enjoy the textures and start exploring the world as much as you can.

This game taught us that a large scale questing is not that good. It distracts the fun you need. The only thing kept me in the game was the PVP arenas and battlegrounds.

This game is on Steam.


The Elder Scrolls Online has 4 classes currently available for play. Dragon Knight, Sorcerer, Templar and a Nightblade.

5. Neverwinter


Neverwinter is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Cryptic Studios and released by Perfect World Entertainment for Microsoft Windows in 2013, Xbox One in 2015, and PlayStation 4 in 2016.

Now, this game speaks for itself. This game is a must try as the teamfights are insanely good. I love the community of this game. Everyone is just awesome and the pvp areas are really good. Haven’t played it in a while, but still, this game was really fun to play. The only problem with Neverwinter is missing of the flying mounts. But, the ground mounts are really nice. Too bad you are going to work a lot harder to get one of those. Do not know what is going now over there, but i think it’s needed.

It’s more like a daily game in chasing of the wards for making easier for successful high level enchanting.

It’s theme says everything, Dungeons and Dragons. Yeah, guess what, you will meet a lot of dragons on the way and they are not that easy to kill.

Neverwinter Dungeons

Started playing as a rogue and found it really interesting while the GWF’s were too OP and everyone played them. It was really hard to find a group for dungeons as a Rogue. Then, guess what, I made a new toon, cleric. Devoted cleric was so fun to play because you need to keep everyone alive. I remember Pirate King’s dungeon was really fun and fast to finish. Castle Never was a little bit hard, but overall the game was really nice. I remember when Temple of The Spider was broken, don’t know if it’s still tho, but there were a couple of shortcuts where you can take.

The only problem with this game was the dailies. Yes, they were pain in the a**.

4. Lord of the Rings Online

the lord of the rings online

The Lord of the Rings Online, initially branded as The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game for Microsoft Windows and OS X set in a fantasy universe based upon J. R. R.

The good guys are Humans, Elves, Dwarves and Hobbits which are playable races in the Lord of the Rings Online.

There’s always something amazingly beautiful around the corner for you to explore. In this game, teamwork is more important than solo. You can pretty much solo the game but for the dungeons part, you are going to need a team. If you team up you will feel the fun coming into you and you are going to love to play the game even more, but only if you get a decent team.

The lord of the rings let you develop your character with multiple skill trees for 3 different types (offense, defense, cc,)  basically for each class. There are lot of passives too!

The world at first sight seems really unbelievable which makes you enjoy the game pretty much.

3. Guild Wars 2

guild wars 2

Guild Wars 2 is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by ArenaNet and published by NCSOFT.

This game is one of the most strange MMORPG’S out there. From regular questing to working together with other people, while also having an impact on the region they are in, such as reducing threat for the time being.

This game is really PVP focused while they created tournaments letting people compete for real money.

Thanks to the heart of thorns expansion this game came back on the table amongst the others and that’s why it deserves this position on the market. The only problem is that you need to buy the expansion, but the core game remains free.

Guild Wars 2 raids seems to be really nice. But, however it’s not that much played like some other MMO’s out there.

2. Fantasy XIV Online

final fantasy xiv online

Final Fantasy XIV, also known as Final Fantasy XIV Online, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game for Microsoft Windows personal computers, developed and published by Square Enix in 2010.

In the beginning, this game was a real trash. But as the community grow large and people started loving the game, the developers answered. Now, we can really enjoy in this awesome game! We can spend hours of talking about this game. The visual technology is great and there are some awesome cut scenes.

Character creations showcases the slip character models and there are number of attractive races and disciplines to choose from. This is the only game where players have a great flexibility with their class choice. Your goal is to hit level 10 and get the ability to any of the other eight combat classes with just the switch of the weapon.

The interface is terrible, you need to click a lot of keys on the menu to access to a different parts in your inventory. You will need to create macros instead of setting up hotkeys to select your opponent or enemy and cycle through them. This is the bad part of the game. You cannot zoom in and out on the map, which is also bad too.

1. World of Warcraft

world of warcraft legion

World of Warcraft is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment. It is the fourth released game set in the fantasy Warcraft universe, which was first introduced by Warcraft: Orcs & Humans in 1994.

This is the only game that will never die. After a decade and still growing. Now, they are going to release the new Legion patch for which I am pretty excited. Cannot wait to see it. Overall the graphics… come on, we all know everything about this game and it’s one of the most MMO’s that support flying mounts and have a ton of them. They do look nicely too! Transmogs, ah, every professional player’s wish. Everyone is farming this like hell.

For a game that old, with a lot of expansions in it’s way. This one is totally the best MMORPG that ever came out. I can see this game never dying and will always be number one.

The Raids are pretty awesome, and there is not a single game that does it like this. Invasions, Rifts, everything is just so perfect.

PVP, Battlegrounds, you cannot say any negative word about it. Just perfect as I said in every single paragraph.

The only problem could be that you need to pay monthly fee to play it. But, the moment you get strong and experienced is the moment when you start to buy your gameplay tokens with gold. At the moment they cost around 70k gold.

Thanks to Blizzard Entertainment for releasing this neverending amazing game.
