From vast lands to explore, skills to unlock, and abilities to upgrade, MMORPGs give gamers a unique sense of accomplishment that most other genres can’t even come close to replicate. Short for "Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game," the best MMORPGa have the ability to transport players to a whole other world.

Epic open-world games like World of Warcraft have helped bring MMORPGs into the mainstream, giving gamers more choices and titles to choose from than ever before. With fan-favorite games like The Elder Scrolls Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and 2011’s Rift, did your favorite MMORPG make the list?
