MMO for wife and daughter?
« on: June 23, 2009, 02:24:05 AM »

My wife and daughter are just starting to get into Free Realms. Seems like a nice, innocuous free MMO. They chose it over Wizard101, as it seemed less scary.

Any suggestions for another MMO or fantasy title that they could play together? It seems like they prefer exploring and discovery, but not so much specific quests or combat. I think WOW might be too scary for a 6-year-old. I know my wife is eventually going to play it, so she might as well start her addiction now. Is there anything similar on a console? My wife finds the controller intimidating, though.

Adventure Quest, Dragon Fable, MechQuest are all great flash-based RPG's. Adventure Quest Worlds is a flash-based MMO-lite.

They're all very simple to learn and play.

Dragon Fable and MechQuest are my favorites (play them during lunch sometimes). They're free, but you can purchase a lifetime sub (with perks) for a very reasonable one time fee (I think it's less than 30 bucks). AQWorlds, unfortunately, charges a monthly fee for it's premium version. They're all made by the same folks, and they're always being updated with new content.

Check out DF and MQ if you want a sampling of the quality of their flash-work. Adventure Quest is their first work, and it's a mixed bag. The oldest content in AQ looks very amateurish. However, DF and MQ look really good.

Free Realms maybe?

I don't know much about MMOs.  I know this one is, you guessed it, free.  And the art style looks kid friendly.

Lego universe online just came out.  I have heard the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean MMO is fun (free).

PotC is decent for a free MMO. I actually played it for a few hours.  Played a bit in the Lego beta. Would be interested in Lego if it were free-to-play as well. It's just hard (ok impossible) to justify another $14.99 a month on top of WoW.
