OP  7/11/13 11:17:48 PM#1
I was searching the web these days for a RP-based MMORPG (I mean heavy RP, like SWTOR). I got really impressed with SWTOR but I couldn't find another MMO whose the RP engine was so awesome as SWTOR. I'm not sucking up to this game but I've never seen such an interactive story (the class stories for example) that makes you literally get into the game you know? I'm searching really hard for another MMORPG with this kind of RP disponibility, and I wanna know if you guys agree with me or have a nice RP-focused game to share? :)

So you are looking for a very story driven MMO. . . or an MMO that has a good RP community?

I'm wanting a well driven story like SWTOR, with in-game cinematics, and with a nice rp base, allowing the player to be free to choose whatever he wants to be you know?

the best mmorpg for RP is the one you feel deeply immersed in its story and your own character. THe only way to find that out is by playing various games. What someone thinks is the best for RP for them might not be for you. Thats all i can say. I dont RP but if i was an RPer i would be doing it in WoW just because its my favorite Lore of any mmo. But thats just me.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

So like a sandbox version of swtor......yeah I don't think you're going to find that.

Most sandbox games don't have yellow brick road story lines like swtor did filled with cinimatics. I loved the story part of that game but it kind of goes against the whole open world non-linear thing where you can choose where you want to go or what you want to be.

I have preference now for a well-made story with voice dialogues and  interactive cinematics, I don't need the game to be a sandbox :P Don't you know some game that is like that?

SecondLife. I know, not the typical suggestion for a game. However, many often develop a persona naturally and role play without ever meaning to.

I agree with SecondLife, but to an extent.

It really does serve as more of a social media virtual world than anything else.  But they are very good at what they do.  One thing that is indisputable ... it has the most outstanding character creation of any game (Disclaimer:  SL residents don't consider SecondLife a game and they will be plenty peeved if you identify it as such).

This thread (and specifically the OP) confirms to me that MMO players today have no idea what role playing means.

Such a shame, really.

The Secret World has some separate RP locations, RP servers, lets you create and participate in plays, etc. It used to have an active and nice RP community, but I haven't checked it out for a while.

Edit: Oh, if you're looking for a non-linear story like SWTOR's, single-player RPGs are the better option. The Witcher 2 and Fallout: New Vegas are the ones I'd recommend. As far as I know, no other attempts to make a SWTOR-like MMO have been made. The Secret World's story beats TOR's stories hands down as far as the quality of writing goes, though. Guild Wars 2 lets you choose some things, but they're mostly big decisions that can change the next few missions completely and not little dialogue choice SWTOR has.

Well, thanks to some of the forum members here I have a little bit of an idea what role playing is and I suggest anything medieval...or medieval-looking.

That's pretty contradictory since story driven MMOs like SWTOR do not let you be whatever you want to be.

Closest to what you want sounds like LOTRO.  It has an epic story and an active roleplay community.  Everquest 2 also has a pretty big roleplay community on Antonia Bayle and has SoEmote which alters your voice and makes your avatars face move the same way as yours.

I like WoW but the world isn't exactly immersive or good for roleplaying, the game just doesn't take itself seriously enough.

SWTOR's unique selling point is the voice acted dialogue with the quests, and this is what the OP wants more of. Nothing comes close to SWTOR in this respect because they blew most of their $100 million budget on it!

 

The other posters here are 100% correct - RP is something that comes from within you - it is the complete opposite of a voice acted story line because, in a voice acted story line, you the player are playing a passive role - it's just like watching TV. 

 

Therefore, I think the original question should be re-phrased to, "What MMORPGs have the greatest suspension of disbelief?" 

 

The answer to this is subjective, but for me, it's used to be Eve Online because it has tremendous range and depth - it's the biggest sandbox MMORPG.

 

The best RP games tend to be sandbox because you have more freedom to do what you want. However, I suspect that the OP might not like that.
