I've been looking for a game like that, but the free online kind. Can't find anything :( I miss playing those rpg type games.

There's a browser based free RPG called Adventure Quest. I haven't played it in years now...but it was moderately entertaining at the time. Obviously nowhere near as, uh, robust as WoW. But it's okay. If you're looking for an MMORPG, there's Guild Wars and Lord of the Rings Online without the monthly fees.

But yeah. WoW is pretty much the best out of all of them. But it does have a monthly fee and is relatively expensive if you buy all the expansions for it too.

Anyway...I play WoW casually. I randomly take breaks for months at the time sometimes, but it's good fun. Haven't really experienced high-level content far as Cataclysm goes yet, but I've made couple of Goblins and leveled my undead shadow priest.

You didn't see that the prices dropped like crazy? They call it a "sale" so I'm not sure if Blizzard is planning on keeping the prices this low. But for now, it's $5 for original WoW plus 1 month of playtime, $5 for the first expansion, $10 for the second expansion, and $40 for the latest newest expansion. And if you get referred by someone your referrer gets a month free. So if you're going to play, hook a brother up I will give you gold and guidance. It will take you 6 weeks of full-time obsessive play (unless you're experienced with MMORPGs) to get through original WoW content with your first character. That's if you don't stop to do any Player v. Player action and just obsessively level like I did. And that's experiencing only 1 faction, and 1 class.

Oh and the new goblin town is hilarious, I've seen it.

I thought the sale ended already, I remember reading something like that. But I have no idea.

Its not free (legaly;), but the best RPG ive played is fallout 1, 2 & 3. They are epic post apocaliptic RPGs!
The first 2 are top down RPGs, the third is 3D.

Never played WoW tho so cant comment, ive heard it is the internets answer to heroin....

Oh and you could play WoW on private servers for free. It's not legal, and it's always a few patches behind.
