1-4E play style
The 4E play style is a high action cinematic style of play where characters worry less about being killed in one hit and more about strategy and what their next move is and the one after it. The players talk back and forth about planning a battle and who can do what to influence the outcome. 4E play is filled with cinematic over the top action. An Eladrin teleports out of the grip of the Ogre. The Fighter slams the dragons foot with his hammer causing it to rear up and stagger back in pain. The Cleric creates a holy zone where their allies weapons are guided to their targets and whenever an enemy dies the Clerics allies are healed. 4E is about knowing when to lauch your nova attack, whether its a huge arcane spell that causes enemies to whirl around in a chaotic storm, or if its a trained adrenaline surge that causes you to attack many many times with two weapons on a single target, or a surge of adrenaline that keeps you going though you should already be dead. Its about tactics and the inability to carry around a bag of potions or a few wands and never have to worry about healing. Its about the guy that can barely role play having the same chance to convince the king to aid the group as the guy that takes improv acting classes and regularly stars as an extra on movies.
Stormwind Fallacy
The Stormwind Fallacy, aka the Roleplayer vs Rollplayer Fallacy Just because one optimizes his characters mechanically does not mean that they cannot also roleplay, and vice versa. Corollary: Doing one in a game does not preclude, nor infringe upon, the ability to do the other in the same game. Generalization 1: One is not automatically a worse role player if he optimizes, and vice versa. Generalization 2: A non-optimized character is not automatically role played better than an optimized one, and vice versa. ...[aside]... Proof: These two elements rely on different aspects of a player's game play. Optimization factors in to how well one understands the rules and handles synergies to produce a very effective end result. Role playing deals with how well a player can act in character and behave as if he was someone else. A person can act while understanding the rules, and can build something powerful while still handling an effective character. There is nothing in the game -- mechanical or otherwise -- restricting one if you participate in the other. Claiming that an optimizer cannot role play (or is participating in a play style that isn't supportive of role playing) because he is an optimizer, or vice versa, is committing the Stormwind Fallacy.

Guild Wars 2 is pretty good.  You do, though, need to purchase the game.  After that it's free to play.  Er, in other words there's no sub needed.

dood, it was only like $60 and I wouldn't be surprised if they had some sort of hoilday deal right now.  I mean, Santa's gonna hook you up with at least $60, right? 

Champions is ok or so I've heard.  Also totally free now - albeit with a slightly different user experience.

I got a letter from santa:

"Due to the bad economy and budge cuts here at the north pole, based on your station in life and your expected earnings for the year we have come to the conclusion that you will only get $20 for christmas this year."

I was sad

I already spent it on fast food...

So yeah, no money until the 1st. I need something to do for about 3-5 days. I've been watching anime, but you can only watch 50-60 hours of anime before you start getting burnt out...Smile

I liked Spiral Knights, though it's more of an action game similar to Zelda and has a cutesy colorful world with Black Mage/Marvin the Martian like characters. Which are the most likely reasons for me to have invested so much time into the game. I got to the endgame without spending any real money though, I even managed to collect all accessories I wanted.

I found Vindictus, its an action based one, but kinda fun. It has some draw backs. Your class is gender-locked, and I like playing magic-users and the only magic user is a hot chick. Guess I'll be force to dress up and watch a hot chick fling magic... Poor me...

Knights of the Old Republic is also free to play.

World of Warcraft is also free to play (to level 20, I think..)

And DDO is awesome. :p

Of the two approaches to hobby games today, one is best defined as the realism-simulation school and the other as the game school. AD&D is assuredly an adherent of the latter school. It does not stress any realism (in the author's opinon an absurd effort at best considering the topic!). It does little to attempt to simulate anything either. (AD&D) is first and foremost a game for the fun and enjoyment of those who seek the use of imagination and creativity.... In all cases, however, the reader should understand that AD&D is designed to be an amusing and diverting pastime, something which an fill a few hours or consume endless days, as the participants desire, but in no case something to be taken too seriously. For fun, excitement and captivating fantasy, AD&D is unsurpassed.As a realistic simulation of things from the realm of make-believe or even as a reflection of midieval or ancient warfare or culture or society, it can be deemed only a dismal failure. Readers who seek the later must search elsewhere. - Gary Gygax. 1e DMG.
Lies!  DDO is horrible.  I mean, we tried to play together as OTTers even and that failed.  Just really don't like that game at all.

That's because it's 3.5 instead of it's superior successor
Of course Pathfinder is better, they added alot to improve gameplay, its very important for everyone to have a fly skill 
I survived Section 4 and all I got was this lousy sig Off-topic and going downhill from there
Fly spell was fine, I just dont think it needs to be a skill, the 3e skill list was cluttered enough with out adding Fly, which many characters are never even going to use.

Man, 3.5 and it's permutations are weird.
This edition warring is going to draw the attention of the ORKs, and result in bannings and ORK posts.
Carry on.

Lies!  DDO is horrible.  I mean, we tried to play together as OTTers even and that failed.  Just really don't like that game at all. 



Maybe you just had a bad group. That's why I tend to play solo.

Of the two approaches to hobby games today, one is best defined as the realism-simulation school and the other as the game school. AD&D is assuredly an adherent of the latter school. It does not stress any realism (in the author's opinon an absurd effort at best considering the topic!). It does little to attempt to simulate anything either. (AD&D) is first and foremost a game for the fun and enjoyment of those who seek the use of imagination and creativity.... In all cases, however, the reader should understand that AD&D is designed to be an amusing and diverting pastime, something which an fill a few hours or consume endless days, as the participants desire, but in no case something to be taken too seriously. For fun, excitement and captivating fantasy, AD&D is unsurpassed.As a realistic simulation of things from the realm of make-believe or even as a reflection of midieval or ancient warfare or culture or society, it can be deemed only a dismal failure. Readers who seek the later must search elsewhere. - Gary Gygax. 1e DMG.

A note about character and world creation

Character and world creation are a form of expression. The point is that some people don't have much to say...

I'm a big fan of PhantasyRPG personally. It's a smallish MMO that has a great community. It also doesn't require that much computing power and you can play on your phone.
Check out this cool game! Just started a new campaign, looking for advice!
I play Maple Story.

Heh, about a year or more ago I've started a new account on the Euro version this time. Man, did that game change since my first character.

Exactly, when I first started there were four jobs with two weapon-based branches each (except the mage, who had three schools). Then pirates and Arient were added. Then, that last time I played, there were some "cygnus knights" with more linear schools.
I think Maple Island stopped being mandatory and Victoria used to be much, much bigger, with four different dungeon entrances instead of one being a hub, as well as alternate routes between towns. And Pig Beach used to be a secret location.
The game never stopped being a sluggish grind fest though, did it?

Nope. It still is, lol. I just find it fun.

Yeah, grinding is why I don't really like MMOs, especially F2P ones (they tend to be particularly bad about this).

Wizardly Online just came out.
