From what I've heard, FFXI is one of the better MMORPGs out there right now. I know the new Lord of the Rings MMORPG is coming out very soon and has been hyped up.. It sounds good too. Guild Wars also sounds really cool as it's going to be free, but it will really be terrible if they can't afford to keep the servers in peak condition. The main reason those games cost $10 - $15 a month is because of server and bandwidth costs. Someone is going to be paying for that in any large scale MMORPG, so if they can't get enough advertisers to pay for it, Guild Wars is going to have some crazy lag. Just my two cents.
