Top 5 MMOs of 2012



5. For number five, I chose Firefall. Firefall is an MMO let out by previous employees from Blizzard, who worked on World of Warcraft. This game is a mix between first person shooter and real time strategy. At first look, it would seem like it was inspired by Borderlands. It's all a sci-fi world, with classes that you would see in a lot of FPS games, like Sniper or Scout. You can change your class at any time. Best part, this game is 100% free. No payment needed.

Blade and Soul

4. This development team from Korea let out a game named Blade and Soul. This Asian style game came out only in Korea so far, and has yet to be localized. So far, it looks beautiful. I don't even mind the fact that it's all in Korean, I love the art style, the combat. I've always loved Kung Fu/Martial Arts MMO, and they're a dying race. Despite the fact that you need a really beefy hard drive and graphics card, this game is wonderful

The Secret World

3. The Secret World. What can I say? It's one of the coolest games I've seen. One of the few that are in a modern world setting. From the developers of Anarchy Online and Age of Conan, it's an awesome idea that's gonna be put to life. Instead of magic, suits of armor, swords and bows, you trade in for machine guns, shotguns, uzi's, and we can't forget our best friend, the RPG.


2. Tera. This game is, in my opinion, one of the select few best RPG games there is. It's graphics are phenomenal, the character design is lovely, and the action combat? Epic. I love this game, and it's unbelievably great. I love the fast paced combat and humongous monsters to fight.

Guild Wars 2

1. For number one, it was a hard choice. But, I decided to choose, Guild Wars 2. Just as big as Tera, this is one is also one of the biggest RPGs out there. There are so many things I could say about this game, and I could go on and on. It has so many monsters to fight, a long and epic storyline, and a living world, with dynamic events.
