The Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) genre is not doing well as we have seen the MMO community is not satisfied with the present MMO's which came this year like Bless Online or previous year. Bless online was full with glitches, the game was not optimized, it was a pay to win MMO and there was plenty reason to both hate and like the game. Many bless online players even got their games refunded from steam and the number of those cases were very high.
You can say that there has been only few MMO's which are actually fun to play either with friends or alone, with less glitch and a fair optimized gameplay experience. With a new year right around the corner, we have brought you all MMO's fans a list of best MMORPG games which are both fun to play and has a good online community. The list also includes upcoming MMORPG's in 2019 on which you should keep an eye on.
Neverwinter is a long-running free to play MMORPG developed by Cryptic Studio and released by Perfect World Entertainment for Microsoft Windows and PS4 and Xbox One. It has an ample variety of classes with sub-races were players can become one of eight Dungeons & Dragons character classes and form groups of up to five player characters (PCs) and a fair character customization.
There are fewer bugs in the game than other MMO, its more balanced in terms of pay to win that generally ruins an MMO, its gorgeous, it has a good story and other good stuff that generally other MMO's fail to provide.
2. Black Desert Online
Black Desert Online is a Korean Sandbox Oriented MMORPG developed by Pearl Abyss. Black Desert Online is the most gorgeous looking MMO, it has a high pace combat system as expected from Korean MMO's and the best character customization. The game is huge and requires a lot of grinding.
There are some moments when you may get bored of some repetitive side quests but its a minor fault you can ignore. Black Desert Online an MMO you should definitely play. Black Desert Online will soon make its way to Xbox One, although there is still no release date.
3. Blade and Souls
Blade and Souls is a free to play Korean Fantasy martial arts MMORPG developed by NCSOFT. Blade and Souls is a very famous MMO title in the field of Esports. As I said in Black Desert Online Korean MMORPG's have a decently fast pace combat system, same can be expected from Blade and Soul. The game has good graphics, less bugs and a fair amount of active audience. The game is fairly optimized and can be run in low-end PC's.
Blade & Soul features a combination of martial arts inspired combat and Qinggong in an open-world environment. Players create playable characters that explore around the world by completing quests assigned by various NPCs.
The game uses a real-time battle system in the third person camera view and requires players to "combo" a series of attacks, much like that of fighting games. According to NCSOFT, the game also features an innovative “Downed” mechanic, allowing players to recover from the brink of death. Players begin with “player-versus environment” (PvE) but may participate in “player-versus-player” (PvP) combat later in the game
4. Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn
Final Fantasy 14: A realm reborn is the replaced version of Final Fantasy 14 which was released in 2010. The negative response led the developers to release the realm reborn which was highly liked by the players and especially Final Fantasy Community.
As you may know that Final Fantasy 14 is an MMORPG developed by Square Enix. The game has few expansions which feature additional stories, new quests, loots and is even more fun to play than the base game.
Final Fantasy XIV is an MMORPG and features a persistent world in which players can interact with each other and the environment. Players create and customize their characters for use in the game, including name, race, gender, facial features, and starting class.
Unlike in the original release, players may only choose to be a Disciple of War or Magic as a starting class—Disciples of the Hand and Land are initially unavailable. Players must also select a game world for characters to exist on.
While servers are not explicitly delineated by language, data centres have been placed in the supported regions (i.e., North America, Europe, Japan) to improve the communication latency between the server and the client computer and players are recommended to choose a server in their region.
Regardless of server or language, the game features a large library of automatically translated game terms and general phrases which allow players who speak different languages to communicate.
5. Elder Scrolls Online
This list would not be complete if I haven't included the Elder Scrolls game. The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG video game developed by ZeniMax Online Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. Elders Scrolls Online lets you revisit some of your Favorite Elder Scrolls location and indulge yourself in the world of ESO.
The game has good graphics, character customization is decent but not that great, the game is highly optimized and has a good active community. Like FFXIV, ESO has many expansions which are more fun to play than the base game. Elder Scrolls fan or not you all should definitely try this game.
As in previous The Elder Scrolls titles, gameplay is mostly nonlinear, with a mixture of quests, random events, and free-roaming exploration of the world. The game does not provide a mode for single-player offline play, although the developers stated that there would be "plenty of content" designed to accommodate players who prefer to play solo.
The player is able to play as ten different races; four different varieties of humans: Nords, Redguards, Bretons, and Imperials; Elvish varieties: Dunmer (Dark Elves), Altmer (High Elves), Bosmer (Wood Elves) and Orsimer (Orcs); and more bestial races: the Khajiit and Argonians. Players must choose one of five classes when creating their character: Dragonknight, Sorcerer, Nightblade, Templar and Warden.
Each class gives the player various different attacks, spells, and passive effects. The game has other character choices beyond those of race and class, such as the player character also being able to become either a vampire or a werewolf, each of which grants its own skill tree.
6. New World
New World is an upcoming MMORPG game developed by Amazon Game Studios. At first glance, Amazon's New World looks like a Survival game as players are not instructed about anything at the start of the game.
Everything you have to do is by exploring, though don't let this survival type experience fool you as the game is an actual MMO with a survival feel. The game runs and looks good.
The combat system is fine, it's not as flashy as you get to see in other MMORPG games like Blade and Soul or Black Desert Online. Personally, my first impression on New World was amazing, I am waiting to play the full game. Though if you all haven't signed up for the Alpha version of the game then Sign up right now.
Enter a lost chapter in history, in a sandbox MMO that begins with the discovery of a new world. Carve your destiny alongside hundreds of other players in a savage and arcane 17th-century world.

Astellia is an upcoming Anime Style MMORPG game developed by Nexon. Being straight Graphics is not the strong point of Astellia as an MMO.
There are some upcoming MMO's which are far better than Astellia in terms of Graphics. Though in terms of characters, story, world and other MMO aspects are what makes Astellia be in today's list. If you are an Anime type MMO lover then Astellia is for you. The game will be releasing this Summer.
There may be many of you who heard about Astellia for the first time. Though you don't have to worry check out the official description of Astellia by the developers down below:
Astellia Online is a Classical MMORPG striving to return the genre to its roots. That is not to say it is a remake of what has been done before, but instead, a tribute to the original tenants of the MMORPG Phenomena combined with innovation and promise.
Set in a vibrant fantasy world, Astellians are heroes blessed by the stars to call upon magical allies known as Astells. Each Astellian is charged with protecting the innocents of the world, a task that will take them through the darkest dungeons and across countless battlefields.
Take up the Hero's Mantle and let your grand adventure begin; Astellia boasts a wide variety of unique and diverse dungeons, both for the solo player as well as parties, that reward those adventurers based on how well they perform.
What better way to test your hard earned dungeoneering rewards than to take them to the arena? Arenas in Astellia offer both cooperative and competitive styles; whether you want to team up with your friends to fight hordes of monsters or go toe to toe against your fellow Astellians, the Coliseum will always provide for your competitive needs.
For those, both bold and brave enough to crave more, the field of Avalon awaits your glorious conquest. Avalon is the grand battlefield where three factions clash and vie for dominance. To claim victory you must be prepared to raise an army, fight strategically, and commit your full military might in order to overcome your adversaries.
All of these elements and so much more combine to bring the world of Astellia to life, all it is missing is your story. Through years of development, this fantasy has been made reality, and we hope that you will join us as we adventure forth to see what the future holds for all of us.

9. Bless Unleashed
Bless Online was a disaster of a game, it had countless bug, lag issues like people having GTX 1080ti (which is a high-end graphics card) also faced severe lag. The game was broken, but it was not a bad game to play. Bless Online is a beautiful game to start with, it has a good combat system, a diverse character class to choose and play.
Now Bless Unleashed will be a fresh start for the developers. Bless Unleashed is a Next Generation MMORPG game developed by the same studio as Bless Online that is Round 9 Studio which is a subsidiary of NEOWIZ. The game will be published by Bandai Namco and will be available to Xbox One player at first as a free to play title.
Bless Unleashed is looking promising, it may act as a salvation to the first game, "Bless Online". In every aspects bless unleashed is looking great but the main question is if it looks and works as similar as it is shown. Bless Unleashed is one of the most gorgeous looking next-generation MMORPG game coming out in 2019.

Dauntless is an upcoming cartoon style looking free to play game which will give you similar vibes to Monster Hunter World in some aspects. I have played the demo version of Dauntless and I had fun playing it.
Dauntless is more of an RPG game with MMO touch the game has a slow start and the combat might not be that fast-paced but it has its own unique touch. The plays good, looks good and has unique monsters to hunt. If you are a fan of Monster Hunter World then you should definitely try this game. Dauntless will be available to play this year as it releases in 2019.

Torchlight Frontiers is an upcoming free-to-play dungeon crawler hack and slash role-playing game developed by American studio Echtra Games. Torchlight Frontiers is going to be the third game in the installment. The game has a good storyline, looks phenomenally beautiful and has a fast-paced combat style. What do you want more?

Torchlight will release in 2019 and will be available to play in the same.
