Warframe is the only game here I agree with. ESO and Neverwinter especially are shit. I haven't played Destiny 2 but when I get around to it I'm sure I'll say the same thing I did about Destiny 1 : shit. Warframe on the other hand, I'm currently grinding to mastery rank 13 just to use a Galatine Prime, even though I don't need to for any achievements, and I really should be unlocking the last 3 achievements and moving on for my completion goal. I quite enjoy the game.

I really wanted to get into Neverwinter more, but I found the F2P trappings a little oppressive, with seemingly everything I wanted or tried to do was tied to some currency, that was bought with another currency, that was bought with real money. I had all these epic lockboxes, but I need some kind of keys, which you buy with diamonds or something, which was bought with real money or an insane amount of hours grinding.

DC Online didn't do much for me. I got Star Trek in my install list, I've heard good things.

I quite enjoy ESO. I was playing last week & I was so into it, I didn't even realize I'd been playing for about 6 hours. I bought the Morrowind upgrade during the Spring Sale, will probably start a new character in that zone soon.

No but for real, MMO is thrown around so much now a days. Every time there's a new mmo coming out I always have to ask if it's actually an mmo or an "mmo"
Let me continue this
Destiny isn't an MMO
Destiny isn't an MMO
Destiny isn't an MMO

Anyone who thinks it is, never played a MMO.

You have no idea as to what a MMO is then, as it is more a MMO than many of the games listed here. I think they are stretching it a bit calling Destiny or Sea of Thieves MMOs as the number of players per instance is hardly "massive" in either of those games.
Yeah Neverwinter is the definition of MMO. Chaos, have you even played it?

ESO has changed a lot since launch. I took over a two year break and was shocked at the changes. I think it is much more enjoyable then Neverwinder and Warframe.

Can't be bothered to find the exact quote while on a phone but someone from SoT said something along the lines "we want run-ins with other players to be something that happens every fifteen minutes to an hour and a half".

In my personal experience with all the time I wasted on PC MMO's, not running into another player for over an hour is not an MMO. A proper M(assive)MO is one where you can expect to find one if not multiple people wherever you go. People talking or hanging out. Fighting for resources or talking out a system to share them equally. That said, I guess skull forts would be the closest SoT comes to feeling like an MMO.

MMO: massively multiplayer online

Sea of thieves and destiny cannot have litteraly less people at the same time than a team in a battlefield game...

Their are NOT MASSIVELY multiplayer online.

Their are just multiplayer online. Stop with calling this MMO. Is not because your friends said a pizza is a cake thats true. Microsoft and activision calling bullshit on their game style....

i personally found Tera to be better than most games on this list..(except for warframe...warframe is one of the best games this decade)

Tera is pretty short though..(which might be good for some and bad for others) 60-80 hours in, and you are pretty much maxgeared and done with the endgame content.

Half this list aren't MMOs lol. SoT and Destiny don't even remotely qualify. Writer needs a refresher on what an MMO is.
Destiny is closer to a traditional MMO than most MMOs. It’s close enough.
Destiny is just a multiplayer shooter with lobbies where you can see other players. It's pretty far from a traditional mmo in almost every aspect. Especially the massive part.
Actually the only difference is the massive part.
There's a lot more differences, but if you are really going to argue this point then you're not worth explaining the differences to. I could sit and name to you 100 reasons why destiny isn't a mmo.

I remember when MMO meant MASSIVE - like more than 16 players. Seems developers are getting lazy these days. MMO implies the rest of the term (RPG) otherwise you are simply talking about any game with large online lobbies. Laziness is no excuse. The term has been bastardized and this isn't helping.

World of Warcraft is a MMO (I hate it, but it IS what it is)
Dark Age of Camelot is a MMO (that WoW killed angry)

Destiny 2, Sea of Thieves, even Elite: Dangerous are not close to being MMO's in that sense. All are seriously restricted by the number of gamers that can be in one instance. Yes, ED is a 16 player instance.

Warframe is the only one I might play one day. If I ever have enough time.

The good thing about warframe is that you dont need a lot of time...your equipment doesnt get obsolete, and you dont get outleveled every time they make a contentupdate....so you can play for a weekend, take a two month break, without missing out.

I've always enjoyed mmo's, was really into runescape when I was younger and then I got into this shin megami tensei one (forgot what its called) and now I play alot of Neverwinter, its pretty much all I play now, there is stuff in between for a couple of days but I always come back to Neverwinter, dont even really care about the achievements.

Please tell me you were joking when you listed Destiny 2 as one of the best MMOs.

Hearing people argue what is an MMO reminds me or being in elementary school in the early 90s when kids would argue what is an RPG.
