Head over to these forums - here for Console Gaming and here for PC Gaming. There are recommendations for MMORPGs in the PC Gaming threads for sure.

Honestly, most mmo games are going to be same and repetitive from my experience. They're either money whores and act like a F2P but honestly feels more like a P2W. Then the others were it's just boring in general since every thing is the same with no development. I have yet to play Realms Reborn, but from what I heard, it's really good. even though it has a monthly subscription, I think that would be more worth than a F2P mmo that has too many flaws.

On a related note for the SAO fans out there:

http://www.technologyreview.com/news/532166/with-100-million-entrepreneur-sees-path-to-disrupt-medical-imaging/

It's actually about a start-up doing ultrasound emitters-on-a-chip for handheld medical scanners (which is more than awesome by itself) but one little tidbit caused my anime/gamer-senses to tingle a little bit.

"Small devices might also be used as a way to feed information to the brain (it was recently discovered that that neurons can be activated with ultrasonic waves).'

Foundation technology for Nervegear maybe?

Back in the day my friends and I used to joke that WoW would run on a TI-86. I'd hate to see 200 people fighting in Southshore running an Nvidia Riva/TNT2 today

edit: Actually, in 2004 I was probably a GeForce 5 series, I remember running the Riva for the Infinity Engine games and having to upgrade it to play Neverwinter Nights.

Personally, I would recommend Vindictus since it has the best action combat in MMORPG's. I wish I could still play MMO's, but my current set-up makes that not applicable. In retrospect however, the closest you can get so far to SAO is ArcheAge.

If you haven't played it, buy a copy of Skyrim. It is not an MMO, but it is the closest thing I've seen when it comes to the immersion of an SAO. There is an MMO too, which I play, but the original game is the real deal (IMHO) even if it isn't multi-player. It feels more like it is than most MMOs (also IMHO).

Fallout is also super immersive. The main plot line actually made me weep several times and when it ended I felt like I had actually just lived an entire lifetime.

It doesn't matter so much which MMO you play. It's all about who you play with. If you can find a good group of people to play with, any game can become lots of fun. On the other hand if you try playing solo, even the most polished MMOs will seem boring.

You've heard this enough already, but FFXIV is by far the best mmo on the market right now. There are definitely some decent anime themed mmo's out there, but as others have said before me they're (for the most part) p2w. Mabinogi is one of the more popular ones, along with flyff, eden eternal and Aura Kingdom. I enjoyed all of them, for a short period of time at the least.

If you don't mind the monthly sub (you can play for free, but can't do a large number of the activities that are core to the fun of the game.) I would recommend you try ArcheAge it is a Korean MMO recently adapted for the western market, and it is actually quite fun. 136 possible classes, great PvP, and a very in depth crafting system. It does have it's issues, but it is still new so it's still ironing out the kinks.

It's considered one of the better ones, but you'll eventually be more interested in a MMO like Star Citizen when it gets closer to release.


Well, we've got one year at most until the full beta comes out.

I haven't gotten around to watching SAO yet, but I've played Eden Eternal and Aura Kingdom for a bit. People I've played with have said both of those have a similar feel to the world/style of SAO (Like if they were to make an actual MMO based on the series, it would look very similar to these). Either way both are pretty fun if you're wanting to get into MMOs. They're both free and not really "pay to win" like a lot of MMOs are.
