Bill's Top Five F2P MMOs

Bill's Top Five F2P MMOs

MMORPG.com's Bill Murphy goes out on a limb this week and writes a list of his three favorite F2P MMORPGs currently on the market.

The List

Let me preface this from the very beginning by stating that this particular list is extremely opinion-driven. There are oodles of F2P games on the market these days, and what you’re about to read is one man’s (mine) take on the top five games currently available. I’m also only including games that are free to obtain and play (even if there is an optional subscription involved) without the actual necessity of paying a subscription or any money for the client itself. That leaves out Guild Wars, Warhammer Online, Global Agenda, and any other similar example that meet part of the “Free” equation but not the whole enchilada. We could write a whole other list for games of that sort. Additionally, we all know the F2P market is driven by micro-transactions and some of the items in these shops are more necessary than others when it comes to things like end-game activities (I’m looking at you, Allods).

That said, just a few years back F2P was synonymous with “poor quality import”. Now the F2P model has the power of some very high quality AAA production behind it, and more and more players are checking in and buying in to the notion of the F2P model. I feel that developers and publishers alike are still struggling a little bit to find that sweet spot between what players are willing to pay for and what they aren’t, but by and large the revenue model is gaining traction, and the following games are largely responsible for one reason or another.
