For those who don't want to pay a subscription fee to game online, we've created a ranked list of the best free to play MMORPG games of all time. There are a ton of free MMORPG games out there, but many of them are so bad that they're virtually unplayable. The games listed below are the best of the best, including titles like Rift, SWTOR, Phantasy Online 2, and many more. You won't have to pay a dime to create an account and play these games, so whether you can't afford it or just don't want to shell out dough to play online, these games are all excellent choices for you. The order of this list depends on how many votes each title gets from gamers like you, so help us decide once and for all what the greatest free MMORPG is. Click the "thumbs up" next to the titles you truly feel are the best, and click "thumbs down" if you've played one of these titles but wouldn't recommend it to your fellow gamers.

Not all of these games are of the same sub-genre. Maplestory, for example, is a sidescrolling MMORPG that differs from the typical 3D open-world type of game. H1Z1 puts your in a post-apocolyptic world where zombies roam free, and Marvel Heroes lets you assume the role of your favorite superheros from the Marvel Universe.
