MORPG

Postby keymaster » Sat Jan 05, 2013 10:13 pm

Hey all!
A friend of mine is over seas, and we'd like to play a game together....
We're looking for an online game (or free download) that is multiplayer (not massiively multiplayer [e.g. not everyone that plays the game can see each other, just people who are playing together]) and preferably quest based.
Any suggestions?

Well, most MORPG games are free to play now with the exception possible exception of World of Warcraft. I'm rather partial to swtor, but I'm not sure how playable that is in the free to play format. I'm wondering how much lag there will be when friends are overseas as opposed to the next state over. lotr online is another good one. I am very burned out with World of Warcraft.

I feel I should add that when I play MORPG games I usually play solo. I have not joined a guild or grouped with others with any regularity in several years now.

Isn't swotor a MMORPG? (Instead of a MORPG)

Yes, but I didn't know if you were making that distinction. What sort of games would you classify as a MORPG?

I would define anything that you can play against other people, but not in a public fashion as a MORPG... E.g. Games where you join servers with other people on them wouldn't be MORPGs..

So League of Legends and Diablo 3 would qualify, correct? A few other examples are Torchlight 2 Warcraft 3, or Empire Earth or even Chess.

I mentioned chess, but they'd prefer something videoish kind of based... and preferably question based too...

I'll look into all those ones you mentioned!!!
Thanks james :)
