If it hasn't to be sci-fi but modern day will do. Take a very close look at The Secret World.

Not sad to see BP die, could have been good except for some greed/balance issues, no ship selection to speak of, etc.

As others have said, stay away from BSGO, pure pay to win. was in cb, ob, and live of that game...was great until the store ammo got buffed. wallet warriors buying red tips and nukes vs f2p ammo a newb could slaughter someone who's played for months.

shin megami tenshi (megaten) and hellgate london both have sci fi themes, no ships though.

Hellgate, older engine, dx9, randomized areas, decent class choices. $4 approx gets you access to higher content, 1 time payment (last i was on). most content (if not all) soloable. can play casually without getting the feeling you're behind.

megaten...choose your path style classes, gamebryo engine (ancient) rented storage expansions.

wouldn't recommend megaten, even though it is sci-fi in a way. Hellgate far more enjoyable.

I'm lucky to get time to spend on STO. Kudos to y'all who can fit in more than one MMO.

I was just realizing that today after deciding to give it another try. I can't even get in the game with my old account, and by the look of the forums, there is no hope for a solution.

Shame, really. When I played before I thought it had alot of potential. There were just so many balance issues and annoying bugs that apparently, never got squashed.

The original AO is free to play (and that was pretty large). But if you want to play the expansion content you need a subscription. I still have yet to login to see how the game is doing at the moment...

They still haven't upgraded the graphics engine, so there is a distinct feel of the late 1990s in the whole Everything. If you can get past the graphics issue, Rubi-Ka is still one of the better worlds out there.

If you have a time machine, then Tabula Rasa was fun when it lasted. Was fun how you could get 2 characters at level 30 in different classes through cloning. Only had to level 4 character to 30 instead of 8 if you wanted to get every class. Also, one shotting giant robots similar to the Striders from Half-Life 2 with a sniper rifle was cool. Too bad that was nerfed.

Looking forward to Wildstar.
