Top MMO Games Like Runescape | MMORPG Free to Play | Cute Online Games
Looking to Try a New Game?
So you are looking for alternatives to playing Runescape (by Jagex) but you are buried in the hundreds if not thousands now of MMORPGs on the market. Which games are free? Which games cost money? There simply isn't enough time in the day, hell even in the month to allow you to try every single massive multiplayer online role-playing game.
Finding a new game can be a real task but to many of us it's just as important as choosing a new pair of shoes or even picking out a new car.
Why is it so important to pick the right replacement for Runescape?
Simple enough it's an important decision because you will be spending your free time working towards a goal, whether it be monetary gain, level advancement, storyline indulgence, party comradery, or any a hundred different reasons and we don't want those efforts going in vain and to be left without that sense of accomplishment we seek.
What games are out there like Runescape?
Below you will find a list of very well made games that offer not only a free to play option but also give you the ability to spend a little money if you want to in order to advance your toons faster. The games listed below are all by the same company and since they allow for ala carte purchases instead of requiring any upfront purchase or monthly subscription you can customize the game at your own pace, on your own dime.

In Iris Online you will be immersed into a 3D MMO set in a fantasy world with Elves, Humans, and Human-Animal Hybrids coexisting as the 3 dominant races. In this game you can mount monsters, enjoy clean cartoon graphics, and jump into PVP kombat. Iris sports a Tarot card system allowing your character to wear the card in order to customize and advance in different ways. By picking up and using monster drop cards your character will be transformed into a vicious fiend for a short while. Items can be reinforced with magical cards found in Iris as well. Iris also includes a full featured MMORPG experience packed with instanced dungeons, special person vs. person battle scenarios and locations. The cute anime style graphics offer a strong anime feel for those who seek it as well as the 22 dungeon themes offered to appeal to the more adventurous types.

Luna Online focuses primarily on the social match making system as it boasts a personal profile (that the user fills out) & the players stats system used to recommend parties and groups. You start out with 2 races and various other classes (and later on subclasses), you'll hunt and quest your way to higher levels while enjoying the cute anime styled graphics complimented by the games light RPG mechanics. Once your match is found via the matchmaker you have a special level unlocked for you to spend time together. Also there are more social structures found within like family groups which hold up to five characters and allow you to run things such as a farm and share the rewards from it. This game tries to add a little more reality to your online game-play with it's interactions.

Prius Online uses a unique 3 character player system, your main character, the Anima and the Giga. The Anima is your personal companion and you will follow different aspects of her past and story to unlock her true potential and strengthen your bond with her. The Gigas on the other hand get summoned during battle sequences by the Anima to fight by your side. The are mercenaries persay and will provide strategic support. This game has a different approach as it's focus is centered around an emotional connection between you and your companion.

Uncharted Waters Online
Uncharted Waters Online focuses on a time in history where exploring was pretty much the thing to do. You will be able to conquer neutral territories, buy, build and customize ships, and even compete in pvp battle with dozens of other players worldwide. This adds to the customization of the game and allows the player to stand out by utilizing the build feature.

So how is this like Runescape?
Well in a sense most MMORPGs are going to be "LIKE" all other MMO's what makes them appealing to you is the instant gratification system where you do something and you receive some sort of reward whether it be monetary, equipment based, or experience based. Runescape focuses on letting us level any and all skills you could probably think of and this is great to keep you busy for a while but as you are reading this article you are probably revisiting the reason you are looking for a new game to begin with.
Hopefully you have found what you are looking for and if not at least we got you off to a nice start. If you have any questsions please don't hesitate to post. Also if you are looking for a new game because your Runescape password got hacked follow the link that just appeared for additional instructions.
