For a newcomer, I'd suggest WoW, LOTRO, Rift, GW2, and SWTOR.  WoW, LOTRO, and Rift are probably your best choices for an overall solid game with the least amount of flaws.  SWTOR and WoW are the easiest to learn of the group.  And GW2 and LOTRO are the two best-looking games of the group.

I'm surprised more people haven't suggested LoTRO.  Especially since the OP prefers PVE over PVP.  It's free, great story, decent populations and friendly community.

Try Mabinogi AND Eden Eternal!  Just start downloading already they are free!  


I tried Eden Eternal the other night for the first time and I wasn't impressed at all with the fluidity of movement and combat so I was kinda stopped in my tracks.  Will try again eventually though but I'm super addicted to Path of Exile currently.


I've heard Mabinogi is a super underrated game that actually gets fairly deep and complex the farther you go into it.  Not sure though as I have never played.  I hope to try this title out myself before Mabinogi 2 comes out.  It is one of the few mmorpg's that have at least some mainstream appeal that I haven't tried yet.

FFXIV: ARR. Try everything else before playing FFXIV: ARR so that you know you're not missing out on anything. In my opinion there isn't a better game for newbies because it treats you like a baby early and punishes you like a veteran later.

Would any of you be able to recommend a first MMO/MMORPG for me?

I've only ever played single-player adventure/RPG games for console other than Skyrim on PC, so I'm a complete newbie when it comes to choosing.


I would like one that has:

* A friendly, decent-sized community

* A lot of quests to keep me engaged in the story/lore/world

* A decent story (I know this isn't a console game, so it doesn't have to be amazing)

* I care more about PVE than I do PVP, though I'll try it; so I'd like a lot of "endgame" options that aren't just killing other players, haha.

* Cutscenes once in a while if possible...voice acting/dialog choices not a selling point since I love games like Zelda where you don't talk at all, really.

* Fantasy of some sort

* Decent graphics....think along lines of LoZ: Twilight Princess/ Skyward Sword rather than Majora's Mask/Ocarina of Time. Doesn't have to be anime looking, though.

* F2P, or B2P if I must.



P.S. My rig is as follows (just in case you want to know):

i5 2500k 3.30ghz

AMD HD Radeon 6670 1GB DDR3 (plan to upgrade this if able with my wattage)

600 watts


750+ hard drive space



Thanks for any help/tips you give, and I hope to get to know all of you! 

I realize you said "fantasy" but I'll put in a plug for "The Secret World". It's a very good game.Has all of what you said and the quests (for the most part) are excellent.

The learning curve in EVE isn't bad if you pick one thing and specialize in it. It's much more lifelike than other MMOs in that way. Trying to master the whole game is stupid and impossible for a new player but you can get really good at one or two aspects of it in a fairly short time.


I think everyone should try EVE just to know that it's an alternative to all the WoW clones. If you don't like it after the free trial is up. Fine, at least you can say you've tried. If you do play though, getting into a noob friendly corporation early can be a big help.


Wushu is pretty fun as well except for the gold spammers. You just respawn when ppl kill you in that game so it's not like griefers can do much and she mentioned she likes Asian things so Wushu might be right up her alley.

Power without perception is spiritually useless and of no true value

You can't go wrong with final fantasy 14, trust me it fits what you want. If you're interested in roleplaying I can also guide you to a nice server that has it if you are interested.

Any mmo worth its salt should be like a good prostitute when it comes to its game world- One hell of a faker, and a damn good shaker!

I personally would not suggest an older MMORPG just because they all feel so dated. LOTRO isn't what I'd call one of the better older MMORPG either so that is a double whammy for me.

As for Rift vs GW2 content I think we are just talking about two different things. GW2 has more open world zones, it has more dungeons especially if you include Fractals. It has more options for PvP. It has a ton of little mini games, jumping puzzles etc. Rift might have more hours of replay for someone but pure content they are at best even.

Rift is very compact funneling a ton of quests into small areas with insanely high mob densities and it filters everyone down the same path every time you play it. GW2 is much more open and spread out.

i would agree with the above comparison of GW2 and Rift. It isn't clear that Rift has a "much more content"  than GW2.  I suppose if you just want content then go with EQ or EQ2.  But as has been mentioned, I would steer clear of older MMOs since they can be frustrating for someone new.  Also, Eve and Age of Wushu are terrible suggestions for a newcomer.  Supposedly  Eve is trying to rectify that problem, but I am not yet convinced.

"It is double pleasure to deceive the deceiver". - Niccolo Machiavelli

10/13/13 10:36:16 PM#50

GW2 is a good choice, also TSW (The Secret World) is a nice choice, specially if you can find a deal for TSW on steam or amazon. Definitelly worth checking. And both are B2P with decent cash shop and no content limitations.


For F2P, unfortunately i dont know what to recommend. I would say Rift but it gets boring fast because the questing is too generic and uninspired (or uninspiring, whatever you call that word) :/

Per your requirements, as many have already mentioned, Final Fantasy XIV and Guild Wars 2 both fit the bill perfectly.


Edit: Whops, I forgot that FFXIV isn't F2P/B2P. Guild Wars 2 it is!

I would recommend GW2 (p2p) or WoW (sub) WoW is a great introductory to a MMO, its extremely populated with huge PvE.

FFXIV is a must, but it's on subscription. Worth every bit of it.
