Hey guys, I think its about time for just a basic thread of discusstion about the different MMORPGs around, and for you that don't know thats Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. I just started one called Knights Online, it's got great graphics for a MMORPG and its quite fun.

Well, can't say I've got that much experience in the corner - of course, I'm an accomplished WoW regular, but that doesn't make me a specialist. A housemate of mine played Guild Wars for a time. That looked the shit. Really, it did... When you compare WoW to GW, it's a no-brainer. Maybe it's a pitty Blizzard used the Warcraft 3 engine (refurbished and adjusted, of course...). Maybe they could have come a long way further when they started from scratch. But then again, maybe we wouldn't be playing it by now.

As to gameplay style, I really dig the unlimited free roaming that WoW has, opposed to the instanced world of GW. Slight problem was getting to max level in WoW (60), which took me about 2,5 months (Resto Druid, for the specialists. The class acknowledged to level the slowest in that time). But once you get there, there's no way GW beats WoW in any sense...

Instanced worlds are better I believe, as you don't have any PKing, loot stealing, etc happening. I haven't played WoW, but from what I've seen and heard, I don't think im missing out on much. I love Guild Wars extremely however, though its more PvP orietned, it still has a strong PvE aspect, and is based on the principals of not having to level grind to become a good player, its based more on what skills you choose to combine and how you use them. Alot more strategic than your average RPG !

And best of all, no stupid fee to play !

I have both GW and WoW.
Started off with FFXI online...enjoyed it but it was way to group orineted...there basically nothing you could do of any significance by yourself..so you had to spend hours sometimes looking for parties.
Then I quit and tried WoW..was very impressed but things got in my way and I couldnd play that much so i quit that...later tried GW...hated everybit of it....dont know why...i just did.
Now I am back on WoW and enjoy it thoroughly.
I love how its not 100% group oriented, there are alot of things to do solo when you dont have time to look for groups.
And thats how it goes for me...i only have time to look for groups on the weekends...and then when i dont have plans...

If you have a slow computer and can't afford a monthly fee, try Runescape. It's pretty primative but not all all bad for a long term game.

If not, play WoW!!!!!
