    Favorite MMORPGs, FPS, online Strategy games etc.

    ok folks I decided that there should be a way for folks to show what they are playing online and give links to the games if they want so that others who are interested might give them a try. Rule of the thread you need to say what type of online game it is and why they like it. No discussion on which is better just informational or asking for more information.

    if you want to discuss which is better start your own thread.

    here's my first contribution
    For me it has something for whatever mood i'm in dungeon crawling, raiding, grouping even solo and the crafting is more then just one click creating, and if you like to decorate it is the best game to do that in the things you can do are awesome. they even have a dedicated PvP server as well as cross server Battlegrounds PvP for those who do not want to live on teh PvP server. I can't tell you much about the PvP side as I don't normally enjoy that. I have tried out the battlegrounds though and found them fun but my current rig can't handle going from battlegrounds back to my live server so haven't been able to do them. for more infomation here is EverQuest2's official homesite.


    download here you can choose streaming or full client download

    PM me if you are interested and I'll tell my my server and main toon. so we can hook up and I can show you the ropes it is also a F2P with restrictions or you can subscribe with no restrictions.

    oh and did I mention that if you subscribe it will also sub you to many of SoE's other games as well so if fantasy is not to your liking you can dip into DCUO or Planetside as well as others.

    I like to play Smite and League of Legends (though lately it's been a lot more Smite than LoL).

    They're both MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena). Both free-to-play, and both tons of fun...

    ...However, the learning curve on both can be pretty steep, and the online community can be quite harsh as well. LoL, for example, likely has the nastiest gaming community on the internet.

    It's hard to say which I like more. My friends and I have been playing Smite more lately, so I guess that one. Smite is a little less hardcore than LoL, which in turn is a little less hardcore than DotA 2. Smite, I think, is a little more straight-up fun, and probably a little easier to get into than LoL.

    If anybody plays either of these, feel free to look me up. My screen name should be obvious.

    I play EQ2 occasionally, but I tend to like other games a bit more. EQ2's biggest limitation for me right now is that it only uses keyboard/mouse(unless you buy a special logitech controller), and I'm just not very good with that outside of a few platform games(which are again better with a gamepad).

    I happen to like Warframe. It's a third person shooter co-op game. You are basically outer space ninja's with guns and special powers. It can be a bit of a grind at times, but it's pretty good fun. Oh, and they added wolf like pets recently. I do have a TWeb clan there, but the only one who plays with any real regularity is me. I do have most of the clan tech weapons researched though.

    Next in line would be DCUO, I don't have a sub, but I have most of the DLC. I haven't played it much at all lately. Not nearly as fun when you don't have a good league. The only person I know on PC with a decent one isn't a very active player.

    Maybe once I free up some space on my PC I can get back on Star Trek Online, and Champions Online.

    If you're familiar with MOBAs but unfamiliar with Smite, it's worth adding the major difference between Smite and every other MOBA: Smite is played in limited third-person, with WASD controls rather than mouse clicks. Everything is a skill shot, and you can't just skim the map like you can in LoL or DotA. It's a seemingly minor difference that makes it play significantly differently, so if you tried LoL and didn't like it (Cerebrum123 ), Smite is still worth a shot.

    Edit: Also, the playable characters in Smite are all mythological gods, from multiple different mythologies (Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Mayan, Chinese...). My favorites are Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, and Chaac, the Mayan god of rain.

    So, it's a bit like Archeblade, but without gamepad support? I'm not very good at that one, but at least I think I could handle it if I had people to play with. I wish they would go a bit less skimpy* on some of the outfits though.

    *It's rated T for Teen, think Morrigan on Marvel vs Capcom, or Ivy on some of Soul Calibur games.

    I haven't heard of it. The skimpy part goes for Smite too, though....

    You should download it!

    I would, but right now I don't have enough free space to be able to continue playing it and Landmark. I'm supposed to eventually reformat this hard drive, maybe then I will.

    Well, there's Smite, there's also the new one Dragon's Prophet. The new Zombies Monsters and Robots...albeit, it doesn't technically fit under the MMO license. For FPS's, I recommend Duke Nukem 3D, Doom (of course), Painkiller (It's awesome) , Team Fortress 2, oh, and Payday 2. For strategy games, Rome: Total War, and Medieval 2: Total War, are must plays, with Medieval being my better of the two, and the new FTL: Faster Than Light.

    Path of Exile

    A Diablo 2 clone that captures the general D2 atmosphere better than any other game (including Diablo 3). Its stat system is a little novel (or weird if you prefer). Passive skills are part of a huge web that looks intimidating but really isn't once you're used to it. Your class determines where you start on that web. Active skills are attached to gems which you socket into your equipment to use. The gems themselves gain levels along with you which in turn improve the related skill. The thing that makes it stand out the most is that it's completely free with no pay to win elements whatsoever. All the real money items they sell are purely cosmetic armor/weapon/skill animation art. It is, sadly, online only though (but nothing forces you to actually play with other people which is how I like my online games).

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.
