My top 20 MMORPGs of the last two decades.
list ordered by
Star Wars Galaxies Released: 2003 (Electronic Arts)
All out best crafting and player world system that's ever been released, nothing has come close since.
It's only had the Hanger and Arena Commander modules released and I still rate it this high!
World of Warcraft Released: 2004 (Blizzard Entertainment)
Organizing, experiencing and beating a 40 person raid. Awesomeness!
Star Wars: The Old Republic Released: 2011 (Electronic Arts)
After the changes brought in with the Revan Returns update this has actually become more of what the game was meant to be. It can now get a place on my best of list.
Guild Wars Released: 2005 (ArenaNet)
Took a while to get used to the combat and movement, but the amazing story drags you in.
Guild Wars 2 Released: 2012 (ArenaNet)
Personally didn't find it as fun as the first. Still a Great game though.
PlanetSide 2 Released: 2003 (Sony Online Entertainment)
I rate it for it's huge maps and fun gameplay. We'll try to forget it's P2W.
Star Trek Online Released: 2010 (Perpetual Entertainment)
Lots of what EvE misses and Free!
Eve Online Released: 2003 (CCP Games)
There's almost too much too do. If you can avoid the ganking packs.
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Released: 2007 (Blizzard Entertainment)
Guild Wars Nightfall Released: Oct 27 2006 (ArenaNet)
Loved the locations and storylines in this one.
Looks pretty impressive, lets hope they can pull it off.
Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed Released: 2004 (Sony Online Entertainment)
If you don't like the idea of flying a Tie fighter, X-Wing or Firespray you're a mad man!
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Released: 2008 (Blizzard Entertainment)
More of the same, with joasting!
City of Heroes Released: 2004 (Cryptic Studios)
EverQuest Released: 1999 (Verant Interactive)
Huge blocky action.
Final Fantasy XIV Released: 2010 (Square Enix)
Much better once they re-released it!
Dark Age of Camelot Released: 2001 (Electronic Arts)
The daddy of RvR.
Ultima Online Released: 1997 (Origin Systems)
