    Final Fantasy XIII-2 has two human party members, and the third party member slot is a monster you tame.

    World of Final Fantasy has two human party members, and you can game monsters and add four as party members in battle (so you have six in battle in total: the two humans and the four other party members).

    Its been a while since I came on here looking for a game suggestion but here I am again asking for help. I'm looking for an MMO because I like the option to play with others instead of doing everything 100% solo. I don't have friends that I play online with and if I'm being honest, my availability to play games fluctuates all the time which would make playing with my friends more difficult. I'm in a slump and nothing is really making me interested in them. I have accounts for many games out on the market but like I said, none of them interest me right now. Here are what I've played, what I liked/loved about them, and what I didn't like about them. I'm looking for something that is either F2P or has a trial I could play before buying or subbing to it so a sub or buy to play (think ESO and such for an example) doesn't necessarily turn me away from them. I mean, why spend money on something that you don't end up liking after you've got it? I should say upfront that I'm not a fan of action combat but there have been some action combat games I have enjoyed as you'll see below.

    WOW - Played on & off since 2005 but the past couple expansions have pretty much ruined my interest in it because of bad storytelling and decisions they forced onto characters. Played some of DF but lost interest after about 2-3 months.

    SWTOR - Fun with great personal story building but its been 18-24 months since I've actually logged into it

    AION - Was there for closed beta and launch. Game has is beautiful but lacks substance and has changed drastically too from when I did play it.

    Rift - Another closed beta & launch game. Loved the premise of the game being the rifts out in the world you team up to fight and the "pick your own way" talent system & builds but the game is very P2W now. Same can be said of EQ2's game style.

    Star Trek Online - Never really got into the game. Played for like a week before I lost interest.

    Neverwinter - Fun game that I return to every so often just for a change of scenery but the upgrade systems can suck a big fat d! Heavily P2W and I don't feel like forking out a couple grand to get decent in the game or invest months to do the "free" route. (DDO which is where Neverwinter is based on got kinda annoying with the DM announcing everything going on including your decisions which ironically is how it makes a D&D game feel more like a real life D&D game)

    Age of Conan - OK game but the unique feature of the tab-target + action combat makes the game feel very clunky for melee and the combo system is pretty damn complicated. Then there's the armor & weapon visual choices are laughable in their limitations.

    ESO - The last game I've played for a significant time. Love the build & role structure allowing people to pick & choose how they want to play. Love the fact gear can be traded across your account to other characters. Love the story driven structure of it. Love the multiple guilds you can be in along with all the player housing (even if I'm not much of a builder myself). I'm actually subbed in it until the end of the year but just not feeling the game right now.

    FFXIV - Another game that's fun because of its story driven game play. Love the 1 character any/all classes option. Haven't played since right before the change to purchasing housing got implemented. I've missed most of Endwalker and not really looking to pick up where I left off right now.

    GW/GW2 - Have all the games. Never got really far into GW because the original was fairly clunky in the game style. GW2 was much better. The open world nature of the game along with level scaling & doing whatever you want was fun. Hated how essentially the "multiplayer" aspect of the game was all of the open-world stuff where you simply show up and that's it...for the most part. Yes I know there is "real" group content but most people don't do it outside of fractals with established groups and stuff.

    Runescape 3 - Interesting game but having a hard time with knowing WTF to do or where to go or much about it. Yeah its the best example of "do what you want" type of game but lack of structure makes it very overwhelming to play. Plus not too committed to the member & upgraded member or whatever it's called just to get another combat class & crafting-ish skills all of which are not accessible if/when you're no longer a member. Plus the whole having to click to move being the ONLY way to move is extremely awkward.

    Lost Ark - hated the entire thing. The overhead view like Diablo sucked. Limited character class/role sucked. I honestly can't think of a good thing to say about it.

    LOTRO - I made it out of the tutorial a while ago but never really got into the game. Not opposed to checking it out again if someone can recommend a good way to play it.

    Secret World - It's such a great game that it made me forget about I've ever played it lol.

    Unfortunately I think you've played pretty much almost all of the worthwhile options. The only other games with at least decent production values I can think of would be Path of Exile (note there is a sequel coming out that has differences, is mainly slower paced), Warframe (I quit this 5 years ago because it became too grindy and too fast paced), and Genshin Impact (I was put off by the grind, the samey young cast of characters, the long drawn out combat, lack of mounts, and the unskippable bad dialogue and voice acting).

    Yeah that's part of the problem I have is I've tried so many over the years because I enjoy some variety in what I play. I find that I get burned out easily if I play one for too long. Even in my WoW hayday I would log into other games every other week or so just to play something different too. My apathy with WoW now has nothing to do with feeling burned out from it and sadly has strictly to do with how they took the game. I was starting to get that feeling on WoW during BFA which is when I took a large break from it for non-IRL related reasons. I agree with you on Gershin Impact. I forgot to mention that one and 100% agree with you on that one. I tried Warframe and didn't care for it too much but only played for a few hours for a few days. I might check out PoE. I'm normally not too keen on action combat or overhead view games (Lost Ark is horrible because of that) but PoE looks similar to D3 which I did enjoy. I ended up playing more of LOTRO and was enjoying it so I might just play that for the time being. But I'll def check out PoE if it gets to that point too. Thanks!

    I would appreciate if anyone could tell me a bit more of FF XVI. I just played the demo yesterday and I liked it, so I was thinking of buying the game with the current 40% off deal but there are a couple things that bothered me a bit while playing:

    - Is the game so cinematic all the time or is it just the demo? The playable parts in the demo felt quite short.
    - Does the combat drag so much always? The molbol and dragon knight bosses felt like too repetitive and long.
    - Moving around the world is always done through the map or can you walk between zones later in the game?

    Thanks!

    any *RTS* games that are turn-based or with active pause? might be old titles

    nothing new of the RTS genre, like Stormgate for example, brings nothing revolutionary to the table.
    makes me wonder if i should seek something different than *RTS*

    IIRC you could pause during Suikoden 5's RTS segments, however most of the game is 6 man JRPG party gameplay rather than RTS segments.

    For flight sims what do you all think about Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 vs X-Plane 12?

    Also which one has better support or flight models for military aircraft? I'm only looking for a few specific aircraft: AH-1 (prefer earlier models), H-53 (C, M or H doesnt matter), H-60 (H or U doesnt matter), C-5, C-17 and C-141. Might also be nice to see Mosquito XEL or Robinson R22.

    That's a fantastic thread topic! It's a great space for gamers to share their preferences and get tailored game recommendations.

    X-Plane will pretty much always have the better physics and more realistic flight model, MSFS tends to have better graphics and more 3rd party add-ons.

    DCS World has probably the best flight models for realism, but it's restricted to just a few aircraft and areas in the world and is a military flight-sim - no airliners, though a C130 Hercules is in development (don't expect to see that for a few years yet though). DCS is free to play, though you only get 2 aircraft with it (SU-25T with a non-clickable cockpit, and the trainer version of the P-51 Mustang with a clickable cockpit but no weapons). Both the free aircraft have a realistic flight model though.

    Do add-on aircraft tend to have better flight models in XP as well? or does it just depend on the one making the addon? a long time ago when i played MSFS 95/98/2000 (i dont remember which one) i got a few large military aircraft, i think an SR71 was one of them. I remember flying the plane around upside down and it didnt crash or anything. I did see something on YT about how an F14 developer for DCS just released an F14 for MSFS. So thats something i might look into.

    I might get into DCS too on the side, but i was only looking at the AH64 for that, AH1 if they ever release one. I used to play Janes Longbow 2 way back in the day. I'm not too big on dogfighting, i like doing attack/bomber stuff instead. I did think about getting a few other planes for DCS and just doing "training" flights like touch and go's hehe. But that seems like a big waste for DCS and I cant fly to other parts of the world if i wanted to.

    That F-14 for MSFS is developed by the same guys that did the F-14 for DCS, considered one of the best DCS modules, an absolute beast to fly. From what I understand, the MSFS version is almost as good.

    As for X-Plane modules, as I understand it it is down to each individual module as to how accurate a flight model they have. I only have a passing knowledge of X-Plane though, I've always been a military flight-simmer. Your best bet would be to have a look at Reddit - there are a few sub-Reddits on flight simming that will be able to better advise.
