So, yeah felt I'd resurrect this. Last I recall, some of us played Perfect World, though I haven't played it since the beta. I think some people play or played Shaiya. And currently I'm about to try out this Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine.

So uh yeah. Talk about what free MMOs you play or suggest any you think were good.

MegaTen IMAGINE is good, as long as you like to craft a ton and play on every Thursday.

Why Thursday? Some kind of server events or something?

That's the one based on ShinMegami ya? I've seen a friend play it, but I haven't tried it out myself.

That MMO takes cute and cuddly to the kickass extreme. I can't wait to throw boulders at you, Ace.

I would assume that it's based on that. Anywho, I'm about to make my first character and try it out myself. Though honestly I'd be surprised if anything caught my attention, since most MMOs don't.

Anywho, been playing SMT:I the past couple of days. It's not bad. At least no worse than any other free MMO I've played. I like that there's a lot of demons you can capture and use and lots of ones you can mix. I haven't been leveling up past like 16, but I've been capturing and mixing lots of shit together. Love that each demon has its own special abilities, moves, etc. Doesn't seem to be a large focus on gear, and most things are killable if you time your attacks between your character and demon well. Be more fun in a party though, since demon abilities can stack and create extra buffs. Money does seem very hard to come by though.

Farm plasmas in Nakano for money.
Only take the cans that stack to 10, cell phones, and comic books.
Also, in this game, skill is always much, much better than items and levels and so I never leave my demon automated, I always use the demon manually.

Kingdom of Loathing. I like it for its great sense of humor and interesting mechanics.

Though you can only play so much on a given day.

Yeah, I always control the demon manually too, though I let his movements be automatic. Unless it's something like the rapid shot or the cerberus fire breath thing, then in that case I take direct control and move it into range.

It's kind of annoying though that stuff that is hostile isn't always immediately hostile. I mean I hate being near those Cat Siths or whatever and then while fighting something else or trying to talk to something else, the little bastards suddenly turn on me and I have to kill it and track down the one I was just talking to. It's a freaking drain on my mana.

I used to play KoL a LOT a few years ago. Eventually got boring and I haven't played it seriously in a couple of years. I should get back into it though; my account's still around and the last time I played, ascension was still a (kinda) new thing and the naughty sorceress was still available at level 11. :U

I definitely recommend the game though. It's off the beaten track, but that's generally what's good about it.

I'm playing for my first time. Pastamancer. It's pretty darn fun, and the skills are friggin' hilarious (Spaghetti spear! Ravioli Shurikens (full of brackish water, or india ink? ewww)! Cannelloni cannon!)
What was your first class?

Oh my god, I remember that game. I haven't played that in years. I don't even remember the name I used.

@Enlong: I played a pastamancer for a bit haha.
Crazy game.

Been into MapleStory lately..got a 20 Gunslinger-type and a 17 Brawler-type Pirate *Made it at like 9pm Saturday Night. So, got it to 17 in a few hours. :D

So far, Brawler > Gunslinger by far. Which is a bit saddening, but MapleStory has never had much for Ranged DPS except Assassins. (Bowmen suck.)

Scania:
Brawler: CapnAdams - 17

Broa:
Mage: Doogalay - 22
Warrior: Novacrash - 20
Gunslinger: Novacrash52 (LolImsooriginal) - 20

Windia:
Thief: ILoveRayna (Shame I can't change the name.) - 22

Every few weeks the designers and programmers sit together and ask themselves "How many pop culture references can we cram into this newest content???"

This thread is stupid as there are no good free MMOs.

Or regular MMOs for that matter

Dynasty Warriors Online is free, if you don't mind having to use a guide to find out what everything means. It's all in Japanese 8(

I can't be the only one here who remembers Ragnarok Online. It's fallen behind the times graphically, but it's still solid. And there are private servers out there up the ass.

Luna did suck, but I did like running around slashing stuff.

I've been playing Atlantica, it's fun.

I think a lot of people in here used to play RO. Myself included.

It's fun, but I don't think I could ever go back to it.
