One of the most common questions I see floated out on Reddit, forums, and Twitter in relation to MMOs is, “What should I play?” It seems as though people are always looking for recommendations past the one or two titles they might know.
Recommending a game to others is tricky without knowing exactly what the person likes, but I would never have a problem winging someone at Lord of the Rings Online or WildStar for starters. Or RIFT, or Trove, or even Final Fantasy XIV, if he or she is cool with the subscription model. Marvel Heroes is a solid bet, and Guild Wars 2 is an incredible deal for someone just starting out in the genre.
What would you recommend to others — and why?
