Hi all

WoT is really my first online game. I gave WoW a go after my kid pestered me to play with him, but never got that into it.

I'm looking for another online game to try out, one for me (something fun, decent graphics, challenging) and one for the wife (something with good continuity and not much gore).

Any recommendations and importantly "why", much appreciated.

:)

EDIT: before anyone suggests it, yes i googled lots and now i'm well confused, so thought i'd ask a gaming community

Eve Online. Challenging and good graphics. Fun depends on your preferences. Game have pretty step learning curve but it keeps most kids away so community is more mature than your usuall mmo.

I can send you free 21 day trial if you want.

cool cheers all, what about games for chicks? Is Mine Craft any good? It doesn't necessarily have to be a F2P game, i'll gladly pay to get the wife off my case when i'm gaming

A good one to try - for either sex - is  DDO, it's F2P but with additional content purchasable and alot of variety. Basically (as the name implies) it's the classic RPG updated.

i got a few recommedations for you.

team fortress2     - its fun but there is some gore in it. its also created in cartoon style.
Battlefield heroes - also cartoon style fun to play no gore but when you want good weapons to play with you have to pay for it to win.
I dont recommend battlefield play 4 free because it got nicked by our clan with battlefield glitch for free. its also a cheap rip off from bf2 and bfbc2.
For good teamplay try battlefield 3- its not a free game but if you like first preson shooters, tanks, jets, helis and other vehicles this is a really good game.
ruse - good rts game but not free, its really cheap though and you dont really need its dlc to get a full experience

and minecraft is a good game but you have to like the style of  its not shooting and stuff, its a game about creating what you want and survivaling . its a fun game expeccialy the mods that you have for it. i use tekkit pack, technic pack, mlp model mod for it. my clan has a server thats going online next week.
