so i was wondering if someone could suggest a game for me?
im looking for something more along the lines of traditional rpg/crpg like icewind dale/baldur's gate/might and magic/shining force/phantasy star/paper mario/dragon warrior/aidyn chronicles,etc. type gameplay that is more based on parties and stats. THAT ISNT AN MMO.

any1 knows an rpg for pc/ps3/ps2/snes/wii/gba/nds that has a lot of leveling involved? I mean like silly amount of levels or some form of reset like in MU online... where you just keep getting stronger and stronger until you can 1 hit most stuff including bosses...
7,8,9 have a high level cap but its much harder to gain levels. you will probably need an emulator if your trying to play it on the pc. as it does have compatibility issues with newer os's like 7 and 8. if your going to play might and magic 4 though be sure to pick up 5 unless you want to stay capped at 30.

I've been considering getting into fighting games, not Street Fighter or Marvel VS Capcom. I loved Tekken when i was younger especially Tekken 3. Is Tekken Tag Tournament 2 a great game to start with?
Hey folks, I'm looking for a fairly balanced open world PVP mainstream MMO to start playing. I was looking for about a year, before I finally gave up and bought GW2. Turns out the lack of open world PVP turned me off of even wanting to level another character. I hit 80 and realized leveling was only for access to a little more PVE content and the whole PVP thing was not only separate, but it was all staged and instanced. I like the danger of knowing I could get ganked while leveling, or that I have that ability to kill an unsuspecting character in their home town. In my opinion, both WoW DAoC really did this well. There were guards stationed at each town, and getting there was difficult, but not impossible. This is not to say I want an all out gank fest, but like those 2 MMO's, I do like the possibility. I also can't stand the influx in anime inspired graphics. There are some good games out there I would consider if I wasn't running around with characters wearing wedding dresses or my little pony bows. WoW was pushing it, but it was playable. However, the panda expansion stuff... I can't really get passed that. Anyway, I'd really not like to go back to WoW, it's had its time.. same as DAoC. I've asked around and have had several suggestions. And after a lot of reading up on them, I narrowed it down to a few. Knowing my thoughts on mmo's, I'm hoping to hear your folks thoughts on which one of these may have the advantage. Also, I'm hoping for a sort of sword and armor theme - non grinding and a lot of players. This is why I didn't choose DC Universe Online, any of the MMO shooters, and a lot of "indie" games. This is what I've gotten it down to:
Maybe I missed one researching online. If you think there's one out there better than all these, please post up Can be F2P or otherwise. Thanks everyone!

Think Darkfall is your best bet, they do nothing but talk about their PvP.
My history and preferences are the same as yours, apart from a few matters.
1)I played Rift recently, leveled to 60 and then grinded some pvp-prestige levels (pvp ranks), but its a meaningless grind in terms of pvp.
There is no real competition or a way to gauge where u stand apart from pvp-ranks which anyone can gain irrespective of skill (time-based/afk in warzones and you`ll get to rank 80 while being absolutely bad at the game). Was fun for 1.5 months till i called quits on it.
2) I just restarted Tera, and I`m still conflicted as i do not know how the end game pvp is. Leveling is very boring i must say. Rift leveling was a lot of fun and i constantly had dungeons/pvp (basically player interaction throughout). Maybe it`s just me, but Tera isn`t growing on me.
3) Lineage 2 is just a worse game when compared to the above 2.
4) Regnum Online is old and clunky. While there is probably still a market for it, I personally would stray away from it, especially if you`re coming from a modern day MMO background.
5) Darkfall has the same issue as that of the old Final Fantasy XIV version. In that, the game seems to be incomplete and still launched. This is based on reading up/reviews/friend`s experiences.
6) I wouldnt recommend Aion again since you`re looking for a mainstream pvp mmo. Population issues might bore you.
TL;DR, Rift is a good temporary (1-2 months) option. Tera is decent but no personal end-game experience to back up this claim.
Imho, your best bet is to play temporary mmos to till time kill something better comes up. (1-2 years :<, hold me)

The only option is to wait.

Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.
today's mmo players don't like uninstanced PVP, it's why it died in wow
there aren't 10,000,000 MMORPG fans out there but they damn sure pretend to be just that. as long as you give them instanced everything, a way to catch up, ports everywhere, queues, etc
the era of REALL MMORPGs is dead. what you want is wow probably, everything else is moving to purely instanced pvp because nobody really wants to do it otherwise
Awesome responses, thanks everyone. Stormkhan, thank you for the in depth insight. I was hoping to find someone that's played a few of these and with the same taste. I'll have to check out Rift in my search. I don't mind the PvP grind for a prestigious title so much. I think the prestige gained is when others start recognizing your name. i.e. if anyone remembers Avatar from WoW. Whether it's notorious or otherwise.
Aion does have the non mainstream thing that's discouraging me. It is free to play though... I may give it a shot.
Darkfall seemed the most promising. It's pay to play as well. But this is why I asked opinions.
I'm not obsessed with PVP, but I don't want a lack of game content to discourage me from even getting there either.
I may also just have to wait after all as well. Thanks again, all. And keep em' coming!
Company behind the game is terrible though and barely talks to anyone, but the sieges/naval battles are fun.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BP4Z...ature=youtu.be shows the scale of sieges pretty well
the one thing that made daoc special was that you were protected in your homezone and everyone who entered the rvr zones was 90% in there because of pvp.
there actually is no alternative to daoc. go play that on official server or 4 free on uthgard.
I am trying to remember some game i played back when i was kid. (only demo)
The grafic was cartonny and the game was kinda turn based.
You made a plan to steal something in building and then you send your thief to steal it. It was very tactical. With money you purchased better burglar items. (or hire minions)
