    For a while now I have been looking for a good, free Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (a.k.a MMO RPG) that isn't just battling monsters repetitively! and yes I have tried runescape and had some fun with it before it got taken over by a bad community(before ppl use to be helpful and generous now it's just a group of retards, some ppl are still helpful there ) and they changed most of my most of favorite parts of it.

    any suggestions? and it has to be compatible with mac.

    in my experience there aren't many games that are fun that are free. and those ones that ARE free usually have cash only items where people who pay a bit get stronger items and such. but yeah runescape = epic fail. if you want try guild wars or maybe maple story if you're desperate. but yeah guildwars you have to pay for the cd's but its free to play online.

    Don't listen to his comment about MapleStory. I don't want to make myself sound like a nerd (because I'm not), but Maple Story is actually not a bad game at all. Yes, it's very cartoonish, but it's actually a really good game. Enough of a good game, atleast, to make my *******-about-MMORPGs friend play obsessively for a long time.

    Anyways, I agree with the other poster otherwise. Free games are generally not that great. I found enjoyment in a game called Dark Ages for a long time, which you can play for free, but costs $10 a month for full, unrestricted play. That's about all the help I can offer, though. Also, both of those games requires Windows, so I actually am not much help at all. Sorry! :(

    Edit: Oh, and Guild Wars is an awesome game. I love it.

    Im pretty sure...

    but remember I'm on a mac and I'm pretty sure maple story doesn't work on a
    mac (except running windows via boot camp but for some strange reason it won't let me do that on my macbook >.< )

    I think, not sure, but their is a game engine for MMO-RPG, that is written in cocoa, so you can make your own free game

    A lot of Mac people recommend Minions of Mirth. There is a Mac demo, you can purchase it, and there is no monthly fee.

    However honestly it did not really float my boat. Animations when I checked it out were on the crude side. Maybe it's changed since then. I've played a pretty wide assortment of MMOs- Planetside (PC), WoW, Vanguard (PC), LOTRO (PC) to name a few. Planetside and WoW were both winners.

    You won't have much fun with a free mmo. Most are just junk. Course... I hate most MMOs...
