Looking for a decent Sci-Fi or Fantasy MMORPG on the horizon.

Spent way too much money in the last few months and need something to keep me in the house.

Well I'm not sure for any upcoming MMOs, especially in the Sci-Fi category.

But for Sci-Fi MMOs that are currently out I'd recommend:

Planetside 2. Pretty awesome MMOFPS
Star Trek Online. Heard it's alright.

Both of these games are F2P btw...

I should have stuck with SW:TOR. I was having a fun time playing it and loved the arcade style space battles.

Star trek online is decent. I love the space battles but dislike the stuff on planets(boring)

Sw:tor is really good.

Both are free to play. Swtor reduces how much xp you get after a certain level if you don't pay for a monthly sub.

not much of an MMO person myself, but Elder Scrolls Online looks pretty good, judging by the trailer and gameplay footage I've seen

Anyone trying to get in on the beta?

p.s. play Dota 2

Blizzard is making a "next-gen" MMO by the name of Titan... However, they are being super secretive about it and nobody really knows what it's about

Blizzard lost extra cool points for Diablo3. I had gone into that thinking that they could do no wrong...

The new Sim City looks alright, but I hate single player games that use DRM. I don't even have an internet connection right now...

If you like shooters Planteside 2 is fun once you get over the learning curve.

SWTOR is also good as others have said.

If you're very much into space exploration and ships and whatnot, then you could try EVE Online. You may have heard of it. By now it's been out for awhile.

Although it has a pretty large learning curve.

Guild Wars 2 is pretty good right now.

TERA: Rising might be good. Although it's gotten mixed reviews.

If you can't wait for Elder Scrolls, I'd definitely go for Guild Wars 2. Very fun game.

TERA, is boring. High production values, but the lacks in everything else.

I signed up for the Elder Scrolls beta like late December of last year, have yet to get a response... :(

Guild Wars 2 is a great game if you just want to chill out for a couple hours. I have no idea why that game is so relaxing.

Probably cause I usually go into insane-grind-mode in MMOs, but didn't for GW2.

GW2 player here, you should try GW2, great story though not as good as the first one but graphics are good. No monthly subscription. Also Neverwinter is in closed beta I think. Would love to try that.

Well, a year later and Elder Scrolls Online isn't out and people are starting to rag on it.
No info about Titan...

What about Wildstar? Anyone interested in that? Looks kind of cartooney...

only thing that concerns me about ESO is that it comes out in a couple months (april? march?) and there isn't a whole lot of media available for it yet. but when you DO read about, it seems super in-depth and awesome.

who is ragging on it? i have read nothing but positive stuff (if not glowing stuff) from those who played the beta

the monthly fee seems a bit dangerous in 2014 though

That's one of the things I've read people bitching about. They say a monthly subscription isn't feasible for MMOs anymore.

Seriously no one mention eq next? That's suppose to be the next true mmorpg that resemble the uo days

Honestly not many good mmorpg out there right now as the genre is dead.

Swtor is just a single player game that was masked as a mmorpg. It's probably one of the biggest failure in recent mmo history.

Tera was fun before you reach lvl 20ish and start going to dungeons. Then it becomes just an online game with a 3d lobby

Ps2 is actually quite good once you get pass the newbie stage

Gw2 stop being interesting when they release ascent gears and push the end game into the freaking dungeons instead of open world. They abandon the dynamic world they created and turn the game into just an online game.

What's wrong with the mmo genre right now is that almost every single mmorpg is a wow clone. You basically lvl up, wait in city for dungeon queue and repeat.

EQnext is suppose to be the sandbox game that would bring back the mmo back to mmorpg. Until then the genre is dead with a bunch of online game pretending to be a mmorpg.

not sure how it's a failure other than the idea people had of it competing with WOW then yes it's a failure because no MMO is going to touch WOW numbers

not going to bother looking it up but with f2p now i believe the player base is the 2nd largest now behind WOW

Swtor is a failure because:

1. Considering the budget of the game, it went from p2p to f2p in a matter of one year. No, they didn't went to f2p because of profit, they went for that business model because its sub number had been decreasing ever since it was released. EA even went as far as playing with the number game and exaggerated the amount of player until they can't no longer hide it with all the empty servers and such.

2. it was a failure even if you look at it from the gaming point of view. For a so call "mmo"rpg, it probably has the same online feature as a typical online game. Everything in the game was heavily instanced with limited amount of players you can play with on the same map. It is basically a normal online game where they would charge you monthly fees to play the game.

Once you reach the max level, the game becomes just another raiding game with a 3d city chatting room.



face it, the game was a massive failure and the only reason it's still afloat is because of the name star wars attached to it. If it doesn't have the ip, the game would be dead a long time ago. It is the poster boy of why spending a huge amount of money and copy wow is a bad thing.


F2P of course would boost the game's player count, but it desn't change the fact that it's a bad game in its core. Hell even tera's player count is around the same as Swtor right now after going f2p.
