Hiya! I'm looking for an MMO or MMORPG that needs teamwork. Having classes that matter would be most important to me(as in I don't want to see a warrior that can survive on fricking potions and not need a healer or an archer that can just tank with a pet) game that has no boundaries (as in no invisible wall s*** that doesn't let you jump over a f***ing fence!) If possible...a game that you can recognize someone by how they made their character. Not some hairstyle and face that 1000000's of people have and some pointless set armor that others of 1000000's people have. And last would be a world to explore that you can commit shenanagins in. For example run off a cliff and fall for 20000 feet to land in water for no reason :P , or to just rush into a dungeon and pull all the mobs and just run away for no reason what so ever :P
Like the title says.. I am feeling the burnout of MMOs. I thought it was only from WoW and have tried other MMOs off and on (GW2, Rift, LOTRO, TSW, FF14, Neverwinter, SWTOR) but the more I think about it the more I feel my burnout isn't limited to WoW and it's from the entire MMO genre itself where it's the same thing of level > gear up > raid, and due to the fact I'll generally play every single day, 5+ hours a day and like 13 hours on weekends.
That said, can anyone recommend a good single-player game, PC preferably (my brother has a PS3 but I don't play it often) with a good storyline so I can try and take a break from the monotony of MMOs? I like games with good storylines, they can "feel" like an MMO without being an MMO if that makes sense (think Dragon Age or Kingdoms of Amalur, both of which look like an MMO without being an MMO to me). The type of setting doesn't really matter, I like all kinds from fantasy to steampunk to sci-fi to modern.
Any ideas? I'm wanting to expand my horizons and the only game similar to this that I've played has been Skyrim, but I felt that was a bit TOO open and I often felt overwhelmed.
the two you mentioned (DA and KoA) are both pretty good too, as is the Mass Effect series.
Knights of the Old Republic has great story as well, and was the basis for swtor (it's set three centuries before the events of the mmo) but is already somewhat dated. i'd say it's definitely worth a try, since you can get it pretty cheap now.
the Dark Messiah (of Might and Magic) that was mentioned above has a cool story too. and even though it's almost completely linear with only a handful of actual choices at the end, it does a great job of immersing you into the character you play rather than just feeling like some sort of invisible spectator :D
but as with KotOR, it's somewhat dated already.
or you could try The Walking Dead or The Wolf Among Us, which both focus almost exclusively on story and dialogue, with most of the interaction being about choices in those, rather than 'real gameplay'.
Sorry I should have mentioned that I played and beat KOTOR 1 and 2 back in the Xbox days. I do actually have the Witcher (the first one) but the gameplay kinda turned me off of it as it was pretty bad. I might check out Mass Effect I've heard good things about that.
If you have a PS3, Nobleshield, you do yourself a disservice if you don't play The Last of Us.
For the PC, what about the Bioshock games? They have a decent story as well. The latest Tomb Raider game was great, at least for me it was (there are differing opinions on it), although it might not be quite as story focused as you want, still a fun adventure though.
Anyway, just a few suggestions other than what Sy posted. And I agree 100% about your feeling of MMOs, I still play them though due to them having worlds with other people around (if not for that, I find them to be garbage games).
I got a fun browser MMO game to suggest called Amazing World from Ganz Studios! Amazing World is an exciting browser-based, open world, 3D MMO game. You get to play your own way with tons of quests, puzzles, mini-games and action-packed multi-player events. A few additional features include...
Cooperative Adventures: Team up with friends and work together to defeat enemies and explore new levels.
Competitive Play: Compete with friends in the Spring Bay to chase away all the pesky Nix. Scare away the most Nix to earn the golden crown!
Decorate Your Home And Yard: Build and decorate all of your houses, inside and out! Upgrade your homes to be bigger and better. Unlock new areas to decorate as you level up!
Collect Cool Stuff: Complete collections to earn exclusive items.
And much, much more!
I highly recommend it and is worth checking out!
I'm looking for a good free (preferably not P2W) or sub based with a free trial MMO-type game. It doesn't have to be RPG, but I'm fine with them. I'm not looking for WoW (played for years, done for now), SW:TOR (played, got sick of their F2P model), PoE (play it) or any MOBAs (play League, don't like any others).
I often have to take the train, which is fairly boring, especially during long sits. Ah well, I have a laptop to play games on! But... There's fairly little room for the use of a mouse, so I'll have to use my touch screen and keyboard. My favorite games can't be played without a mouse, so I'm looking for a (few) good one(s) that I can play with very little usage of a mouse or with touch screen.
I like many genres and I'm open for nearly anything, but I don't want to go with the casual genre. I tried a few of those, and I don't find them worth their money. Speaking of which, free to play is not required, I'm even willing to pay if it's really good.
as is Tera.
anyway, the only one i can think of is FTL: Faster Than Light. it does use mouse control, but it has several key shortcuts, doesn't really need fast precision mouse movement, and is supposed to be paused frequently to give orders anyway. it should probably be fine with a touchpad.
I resubbed to WoW again. Why? I don't know. I regret it already, same boring feeling since I don't end game raid for real anymore.
I need a f2p mmo game, or something. LoL doesn't do it for me, Hearthstone gets old, Diablo is meh... I just have nothing to do late at night when I get home from work. GAH!
Find me something people of MMO. HELP ME!
Try out Solforge if you want a different free online card game to play. Not as pretty as HS but the strategy within it is solid.
