9. World of Warcraft (2004)
There are very few games that can boast of the longevity World of Warcraft has seen due to its loyal fan base, and the incredible work Blizzard has done over the years. In 2004, history was made with the release of World of Warcraft and over 100 million players have signed up till date. The rich lore that the Warcraft universe offers is unparalleled and is nothing like any other MMORPG you may have tried out.
Alliance and Horde are the two major factions to choose from, and when it comes to character creation, you have a bunch of different classes including new additions like Demon Hunter. With a vast number of builds to work towards, you will never run out of content. There are players who have clocked tens of thousands of hours over the years, and frequent updates and expansions keep the playerbase active. One thing you do need to keep in mind is that World of Warcraft requires you to purchase the latest expansion as well as pay a monthly fee as subscription costs. While you can grind for in-game tokens to play for “free,” as a beginner it might prove to be a little difficult unless you have friends who can help you out during the early game.
8. Warframe (2013)
Warframe is not a true MMORPG, but it does have a lot in common with other titles from the genre. The biggest differentiator is the third person combat. Unlike other games where you have to grind for new gear all the time, you can pick up a good weapon and mod it to your heart’s content in Warframe. In fact, it is the mods that you can rank up for specific weapon classes to upgrade all of your favorite gear. Unlike other MMORPGs that feature living worlds, you are limited to just 4 players at a time in any given mission with a few social hubs being exceptions to the rule.
The Warframe community is one of the best we have ever seen in online gaming wherein players are always willing to help each other out with missions, boss fights, and limited time quests. When it comes to the lore, there are plenty of story missions along with plenty of hidden secrets and a Codex system that encourages you to pick up data fragments and learn more about the Warframe universe. Unlike traditional MMOs that have a limited number of classes, the game has over frames to choose from and just like the weapons, you can mod them for a number of builds as well. Volt, which is one of the starter frames can be built for speed, crowd control or shields to amplify his team’s damage. Different builds on certain frames make them feel like completely new characters altogether which adds to the beauty of Warframe. There is a ton of content and while PVP might be one of its weakest spots, the game does plenty right to draw millions of players into the game every single year.
