    Pirates of the Burning Sea

    Pirates' best bit is the ship to ship battles, you'll find yourself anxious to set sail and explore the seas rather than run errands on foot for NPCs. Pirates of the Burning Sea sounds like a great idea - it's the Pirates... more

    Runes of Magic

    Guild Wars

    Guild Wars is a beautiful playing experience, a technical marvel and a fantastic way to pass the time. The fact that such a beauty of a game is practically free is yet another reason to play it. MMORPGs, for various reasons,... more
