^^This.  You can play World of Warcraft and Rift up to level 20.  Plenty of time to see if you like the game(s).  Lord of the Rings is also good because it's free to a point.  I personally wouldn't recommend Dungeons and Dragons Online as it has a really strange leveling and feat system that bogs it down.  Can't hurt to try it though, as it may be up your alley.

There are also a million eastern Free to Play games that you can try, although I have never found even 1 to be any good.  Maybe...Aion?  Since it is fully Free to Play.  ugh..nevermind, I hate Aion.  Forget I said it.  ;D

LOTR is good fun definately and the person might find that easier if they have some idea what the world is about before hand. Most people do because of movies/books etc.

I would say WoW, without a doubt, provided your "free" criteria is satisfied by the fact that a new player can check it out and play to level 20 for free.


I think LOTRO would be a good second choice, although it's only slightly more free in that you'll hit a point not far beyond level 20 where you can't do much without spending money.

I would also recommend starting with Lord of the Rings Online. And then move to Rift, GW2 and others.

I would say introduce the beginner to a game with a good community so they know what a good community is like. If you try to push them into WoW or Rift then at least make sure that global chat channels are disabled for them (for their own good)

 

The problem is that if you are looking for a f2p game, a good community is often the last thing you will find.

After playing darn near every mmo under the sun for the past 10 years. And from suggesting and introducing mmos to several new fans that include coworkers, my wife, my kids and friends. World of Warcraft is by far the best intro mmo to play. Forgiving leveling curve. Plenty of quest and content. Lots of side options. The community is vast enough that you can pick who to play with and not be stuck for too long playing alone. But if you want to go the F2P route first I'd say go with LoTRO or EQ2.Both of those were subscription based mmo before the leap to F2P. Thus they are more fully fleshed out than most F2P mmos in regards to structuring of quest and leveling curve. Also, those mmos are not bound deeply to the cash shops that plague most F2P mmos that started as F2P.

No no no no...and just no!

Play WoW if you want to see nearly everything a MMORPG shouldn't be. Try Vanguard; Saga of Heroes. Although small populations....you will get more of a  MMO experience playing it than overpopulated WoW because people actually interact and you can openly explore a huge world without restrictions, etc.

 

WoW is too solo heavy where no one wants to group up unless there is somethign in it for them, too fast to cap, has cookie-cutter tasks they pass off as quests (Collect/kill x amount of x 10 feet away, courier missions out the wazoo), cross server functions further diminishing any possibility of an actual community.... list could go on. It's more of a glorified console RPG than a MMORPG.....IMO of course.

 

Feel bad for those new to the genre trying to find a good one as a starter...because really...there are VERY few worth it. As in...can be counted on one hand out fo the plethora of choices.

 Lol - you want him to play Vanguard? Throw him into the fire with one of the more old school type of mmos when he is likely looking for a newer generation style mmo. That's bad advice  for this guy.. personally I don't play WoW anymore.. and grew up on games like Vanguard - with EQ, SWG, and DAoC.. but its still a great game and very friendly to those new to mmorpgs.

I am just really excited about discovering GW2 is a free title now.  Thanks all!
