Hi guys. Today, we will talk about the top-10 MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games) to play on PC.
Let’s get started.
# I: WORLD OF WARCRAFT
On top of the list is World of Warcraft, one of the best MMORPGs, owing to its great impact on the video game experience. No matter your preference. Is it dungeons, raiding, or player vs. player battles, World of Warcraft got you covered.
It has continued to leave up to expectations, even with regular updates.
The latest one, Battle of Azeroth, was not given 5-star reviews like previous expansions. However, it is still worth checking out. It introduces players to new high-seas adventures with interesting new game modes like Island expeditions and Warcraft 3-esque Warfronts.
World of Warcraft has an endgame that is diverse and fun despite its gear system been an annoying flaw.
# II: RUNESCAPE
RUNESCAPE is One of the best MMORPGs. This game has been part of some gamers’ gaming journey for a long time since its inception in 2007. Why? Because it gives the player total freedom.
It has a basic tile and click-based movement system and doesn’t allow you to jump. You can do whatever you wish within the game’s capacity when you land in the fictional world of Gielinor. No back story, no levels, and no need to select class or race upon launch.
But you can improve your skills as you go further in the game. The unique thing about this game is its unpredictable questing system. Each quest is different from the other in the story, characters, and even time of completion. Some quests might take you just 5 minutes to complete, while some might take several hours.
Like World of Warcraft, RuneScape comes in two flavors: the standard game is known as “RuneScape 3,” and a variant “Old School Runescape.”
#III: LORD OF THE RINGS ONLINE
Released in 2008, this game brings Tolkien’s lore-rich fantasy universe to life in the form of immersing story-focused MMORPGs.
The developers make the game as original as possible. You will find accurately represented towns, cities, and characters according to the book. You can visit Modor in its entirety or take a stroll in the streets of Bree.
It’s not your typical MMO game. But the features it has are what make it unique. You get to play in story mode, create your in-game tunes, and enjoy thematic playable races and classes.
You can take roles like been a Hobbit burglar or become a musician or shapeshift into a hulking bear whenever you like.
Lord of the Rings is an MMO for true fans of this universe, and it’s perfect for solo players. And it is free to play.
# IV: PLANETSIDE 2
Planetside 2 is an eternal war between 3 nations, each wanting to control four different continents. It involves the massive killing of other players and seizing territories.
If you don’t care about your average MMO’s distractions, Planetside 2’s purity of war is extremely refreshing.
You might spend a whole day taking over a whole planet, and the following day you are on the defensive. Someone practically wants to take it from you almost immediately. That’s just enough to give one an adrenaline rush.
As time goes on, you become experienced, and you approach new raids or defense with knowledge from previous experiences.
New updates like building bases and making overthrowing a player difficult are now making the game look less attractive to players. However, it is still a great MMORPGs.
# V: ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE
Elder Scrolls is one of the most popular role-playing games around. It offers you the opportunity to play online with friends.
The back story is set 1,000 years before Skyrim and 8000 years before Morrowind and Oblivion. The player starts as a prisoner at Coldharbour’s Wailing Prison. He is to obey the Elder Scrolls tradition.
The aim is that you find your way out and explore Tamriel. To survive, you have to fight monsters, discover dungeons, and craft weapons; you can do this solo or with other players.
Elders Scrolls Online universe keeps expanding, thus always making the game fresh.
# VI: BLACK DESERT ONLINE
This game grooms you from being an unidentified individual to whatever you chose to be.
You start by selecting one of the 18 gender-locked classes, and then you go through a comprehensive character creation system. After this, you are thrown into a glamorous fantasy world where you can be whatever you want to be within the limits of this game.
You can be becoming a hunter, a fisherman, a fighter challenging PvE world bosses, and even other players using the game’s advanced combo-based action combat system.
If you get tired of combat or life skills, you keep amassing. You could venture into NPC slaves. These are employees that do your biddings. They mine, craft, take care of your investments while you focus on other fun parts of the game.
# VII: GUILD WARS 2
This game can be said to be an ideal online game, the reason why it is one of the best MMORPGs.
This game has few regular quests, but you can form a team with other players to fight in rolling events. So you have to work together to face waves of monsters. Events are in mini storylines in stages, and you advance based on how good you perform.
Due to regular updates, you might find it difficult to get to the end of this game. As the game advances, you get to be charged, but you can stick to playing lower levels if you are not ready to spend a dime.
# VIII: EVE ONLINE
Eve Online is an extremely-satisfying, sci-fi sandbox game and can be quite challenging for new players.
It is a full community-driven spaceship MMO where each play can choose his destiny in a massive, sprawling galaxy.
You can be an explorer mapping out the whole space, a bounty hunter, taking down people for fame or money, or you could be a petty trader making money from your sales.
And if you love power, you can enter politics in this universe and vie for top political offices in this game.
This game, however, is risky and complex even with all this freedom. It could be quite challenging while playing for the first, but you would agree it’s one of the best multiplayer sci-fi games out there when you get the hang of it.
#IX: FINAL FANTASY 14
The second installment, Final Fantasy 14, A Realm Reborn, changed gamers’ perspective about the game series as it was way impressive than its predecessor. Truly it was reborn.
With this new installment, no more looking for a new character for every class. You can now swap characters whenever you like. Now you can even borrow abilities between classes.
However, it’s not all combat. The storyline builds into a massive epic spanning continents across its three expansions. If you are bent on finishing this game, sorry to disappoint you, you might not.
Regular updates are added, but you will still encounter the same dungeons and raids several times.
The developer packaged features from the tabletop game into Dungeons and Dragons to make a game.
This game had seen many updates from when it was launched, ranging from new races and classes to faraway lands like Icewind Dale; here, the least of your worries are barbarians and extreme temperatures.
If you start to get bored due to low or no content, you can always use the player-created stuff. This will provide you with hidden real gems to explore more.
It was initially a free game, but now it’s paid. But if you know your way, you can still play it for free.
