6 - Planetside

PlanetSide was an MMOFPS from Sony Online Entertainment that involves three warring factions in a battle for supremacy over the ten continents on the planet of Auraxis. Players can utilize a number of different weapons, vehicles, and combat roles to take the fight to their enemies, and earn experience to progress their characters.

5 - Vanguard: Saga of Heroes

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes was a fantasy MMORPG in the hands of Sony Online Entertainment, who also hold other notable MMORPGs, such as EverQuest, EverQuest II, and DC Universe Online. Vanguard puts players in the fantasy land of Telon, and has all the usual suspects expected of the genre: a vast land to explore, questing, PvE, PvP, RP, dungeons, raids, mounts, crafting, player housing, and more. Vanguard has no zones or instances, making traveling and adventuring much more persistent and believable than other MMORPGs. The game employs a hybrid free-to-play model with optional subscriptions to unlock all of the content.

4 - Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (WAR) was a fantasy MMORPG from Mythic and Electronic Arts. Based on the popular Warhammer Fantasy setting developed by Games Workshop, the game has a strong Realm vs. Realm (RvR) focus, pitting the sides of Order and Destruction against each other in PvP warfare. WAR also introduces Public Quests that take place in the game's open world and require player cooperation, and features a massive Tome of Knowledge that keeps track of your actions in-game and provides information about Warhammer lore.
