The top 3 free to play MMORPGs of 2012 based on our biased opinion and not any surveys or subscriber numbers. It’s an unranked list of our favorite MMORPGs.
First, let’s get one thing out of the way. World of Warcraft is not going to be listed here. There are lots of lists like that where only the best-selling games are in it. This isn’t that type of list. This is a list of quirky, fun games that you might never have heard of but we think are worth playing.
Top 3 Free MMORPG Games 2012
Forsaken World – for people who prefer a darker setting, Forsaken World is the best dark fantasy 3D MMORPG today. Its gothic artwork is full of elaborately detailed costumes, armor, weapons, etc. which must be seen to be believed. No other game comes close to it. The virtual world of FW is full of supernatural creatures, most notably its highly popular Kindred/Vampire race and class. Many f2p MMO games were designed with an Asian fantasy theme so Forsaken World is a welcome departure from the norm. It has all the usual features like PvP, dungeons, instances, guilds, quests, achievements, and so forth and all of its is very well-designed.
Star Trek Online – a 3D sci-fi MMORPG based on the Star Trek, players start off on top right away as they take on the role of a Starfleet officer commanding his first crew and running his own spaceship on a mission to explore the far reaches of the Star Trek galaxy. This MMO is particularly noted for its excellent massive PvP ship battles in space. If that’s your sort of thing, give this game a try, you won’t be disappointed.
